    Re: Hair loss/restoration...your experiences?

    Check out www.minoxidil.com

    I just started Xandrox, it's a bit more than Rogaine, but it's clear, not greasy, and no smell. It penitraits the skin better too. I tried Spiro but shed from it. FNS did nothing for me, and its like putting thick lotion in your hair, it doesn't penitrait the skin good at all. Go to hairloss forums and look up these products before using them.

    I have heard amazing things about Xandrox 12.5%, half the guys using it are regrowing their hairline, the other half had to quit it because it irritated their skin (I'm not being accurate here on the percentage). So start off with 5% and get used to it first, you don't want to make your hair go in to the telegen phase. Also use EMU Oil, especially if Xandrox irritates your skin.

    Do a test area for a few months to make sure you don't react bad to it. Remember once you start minoxidil you will have to take it for the rest of your life just like Propecia.

    Be careful with Propecia and anything stronger than it. Everyone can react different to it. I was on it for five months and it distroyed my hairline, I wasn't shedding at the hairline either before starting it. Apparently I'm part of the 1% that gets a bad reacion from Propecia, it can shock your body.

    Re: Hair loss/restoration...your experiences?

    I noticed my hair receding at age 17!...... and now I'm really getting worried, because the sides of my head are really thin, and my hairline still seems to be receding.. slowly.. but surely........ I wrote an email to a hair doctor once, and he reccommended some pill that blocks the DHT from getting to your hair. and that 9/10 guys it stopped hairloss... too bad I forgot what that was called....

    has anyone seen a doctor about this? instead of trying to find over the counter stuff? I have a feeling that what ever the doctor has will be better.

    I'm not at the point of this, but I'm going to throw it out there... Hairplugs...... they aren't what they were 5 years ago. They take the hair from the back of your head which is permenent unlike the top of your head, and place it anywhere else on ur head, and it willl grown their like normal... they've gotten so good at it now that you really can't tell that u have plugs, years ago they used to put in 10 hairs like ever half inch apart, but with technology they can make it look a lot more natural... I think this is a pretty good option

    If my hair starts to go at this rate, maybe in a couple years I'm going to get it...

    oh and BTW.... standing on your head to get blood to the hair is a MYTH.... that doesn't do jack

    Re: Hair loss/restoration...your experiences?

    genaric propecia is called proscar---

    I got some Q's too
    ---------------------
    I've heard some things about propecia/proscar that it gives u bitch tits and other weird shit. Somthing to do with the test. and the estrogen.

    Has anyone heard or experienced this?

    At 18 I feel I might be still growing and getting more broad... will propecia stuff stunt my growth?

    Is a doctors prestription needed, or are there places to order it off the internet?


    Started April 2004--EG-4.5

    Did PE for a couple months, gained about 4.6/4.7 EG then stopped for a long time

    Started again Feb 05 Just about EG 4.75

    March 1st- EG 4.75

    April 2nd- EG 4.8 (ONLY .2 MORE TO GET TO 5", My short term goal)

    Re: Hair loss/restoration...your experiences?

    I wish I took something when I was 20 when the thinning and balding started. (I was scared it would mess with erections)

    Now @ 22 I have tempels (thank god they are small)

    3 Month ago I bought real Proscar (5mg) wich I cut into 4 pieces with a knife (don't even care if they are even) and took one piece daily for the last 3 month.

    Well what ca I say. I'm amazed. Fallout stopped completely and hair is thickening and regrowing everywhere. I have thick hair coming out of the temples wich were bald for atleast 1-1.5 years.

    Didn't mess with erections at all.

    I wouldn't bother with anything else . Like rogaine or minox. Too messy to greasy and hard to maintain a steady and disciplined application routine. Incase propecia or proscar works for you - STICK to it !

    Men report that their hair situation keeps on improoving even in year 6 and 7 and 8 of continous use.

    Just never go of it unless you want the "sexy" look

    Re: Hair loss/restoration...your experiences?

    A great book on hair loss and regrowing your hair naturally without drugs. "The Baldness Cure" author is Andy Bryant. Dispells alot of the DHT theory.
    A method of stimulating hair growth I came across in an old book on reflexology is "fingernail buffing". Take your hands in front of you and curl your fingers in towards your palms and buff your nails back and forth very fast for ten minutes twice a day. This supposedely stimulates the same nervous pathway between our hair and nails. The book swears it is a miracle for regrowing your hair. Your fingernails should buzz with energy after ten mins. The book this is found in is called "Body Reflexology" I think the authors name is Betty Edwards.

    Where did you buy the Proscas you are taking now, and at what price ?

    Have you had any side effect from using it ?
    Kind regards
    Dr. Ralph

    I'm no real doctor, I just happen
    to like Dr. Dre and Ralph Lauren.

    Going for 10" NBP erect length and 7,5" erect girth-that ought to do it !

    Re: Hair loss/restoration...your experiences?

    I bought it high priced at local pharmacie. No side effects at all. I did so because I didn't want to take any chances with generic stuff from the internet and end up with less hair then before. Later I heard that viagragod kausion_420 also can provide help with generic propecia/proscar. He can be trusted 100%. Next time I need to buy some I'll get back to him.


    Btw, the reason for not taking propecia/proscar earlier for me was : there was just too much controversy. For every guy on the net who said "wow it regrew all of my hair" , i found one guy who said he got shockfallout and limp dick.
    Afterall I was desperate to try it and I was lucky that it works for me.

    Re: Hair loss/restoration...your experiences?

    I'd advise caution with propecia/proscar/finasteride (all the same drug, blocks conversion to DHT). I was on it for six years, and it definitely helped my hair a great deal, though its effect diminished over time. What also diminished over time was my sex drive, and it happened so slowly I didn't really notice it until i was having major problems with both desire and performance. A month after stopping the drug I felt like a new man - the difference really amazed me. I have to say I'd rather be a virile man with less hair, than a virtual eunuch with a great head of hair.

    To anyone on it or contemplating it, please be aware you are definitely dealing with major shifts in your hormonal chemistry. Not something to be taken lightly. The drug company Merck seems to be understating the actual prevalence of sexual side effects of a drug that interacts directly with sex hormones. Bottom line - be on the watch for side effects, and listen to your body.

    DO what ? Can someone translate this into something I can understand ? Is it like : Scrub my inner palms with the tips of my fingernails back and forth ?

    Re: Hair loss/restoration...your experiences?

    tbirdy, I think you got it right. It's very simple, put your hands in front of your chest with your palms facing towards each other and curl your fingers in towards your palms. Then briskly buff your fingernails back and forth very fast for about 10 minutes. When you stop, your fingernails and fingertips should buzz or tingle with "energy". This old book that I read about this in had a few personal cases where people swore that by doing this twice a day there grey hair started to return to it's original color, they stopped losing their hair and re-grew there hair in areas that were receding. That and it makes your hair grow thick and fast. There were some old pics of this old guy buffing his nail and he had an insane thick head of hair and swore that buffing his nails was the reason. I've never came across this technique in any other book. The science behind it was that your nails and hair are composed of the same keratin protien and their growth and health are related. By stimulating the energy in your nail beds by buffing, your hair is stimulated as well because they share the same energy pathway in the body.
    Who knows maybe something this simple is the magic key for us folliclly challenged guys. I've never practiced buffing religously so I can't say as to it's effectiveness. I can keep it up for about 2 weeks then lose my discipline. Alot like Penis Enlargement for myself. The book said it takes months for noticeable results, as with most anything.

    Hi sasquatch,
    Just to clarify, when you say "buff your fingernails" against your palm you sort of do like a moping motion just like when you mop the floor when cleaning, right?

    You could just do this motion on a hard surface like a desk, right? Seems much easier than doing against the palm of my hands. Thanks.

    Re: Hair loss/restoration...your experiences?

    I'm thinkin' you're supposed to rub your nails against each other, at least that would make more sense to me. I not one for this energy/voodoo stuff but I would try about anything.

    Re: Hair loss/restoration...your experiences?

    A device was designed to automatically "buff" your nails for you. The designers tested the unit on a handfull of subjects with different levels of hair loss and reported significant improvements in stopping hair loss and new growth. They applied for a patent but I've never seen the thing for sale. Kind of like the "Power Jelq" in the sence that you can probably do just as well doing it by hand if not better.
    The motion of the exercise is that you just "buff" your nail back and forth across each other "left hand against right hand" very rapidly. Your nails and fingertips should tingle when you are done.

    Yeah, that's what I thought in the first place. I thought he meant use the tip of your fingernails to scrub up against your palm but I think he's saying just rub your fingernails (not finger tips) of your left hand against the nails of your right hand. This is much easier 'cause scrubbing my fingertips against my palms hurts like a bitch.



    Look at this link:
    http://holisticonline.com/Remedies/H...ss_massage.htm
    Reflexology Nails are the reflexes for the hair and scalp. Five minutes buffing of the fingernails of one hand against the other daily may help hair and scalp problems.


    I'm gonna do my kegels and finger buffing at the same time everyday.

    Motlissof, since you first started using Rogaine and or Propecia, how much approx. do you think you have spent on the stuff ?? You are the only person I've heard of to use these products consistantly for 7 to 8 years.
