Some of you bros dont care about hair loss, but it can be a big concern for most of us other bros. I'm 35 and I still have a thick and full head of hair. I am not one of those guys who would look good bald or balding. In some of my cycles years ago, I noticed large volumes of hair falling out in the shower during a cycle. This brought me to the point where I would look in the mirror and say, "What good is there in having huge muscles if my hair looks like crap?" So my search began to find the best possible hair solution, which involves stopping hair loss and even reversing it!

Let me just show you the final results (IN ORDER OF IMPORTANCE),and I will comment on each:

  1. AVODART® (Dutasteride) - Dutasteride was developed to help shrink the prostate and was found to have an even more profound effect on regrowing hair than Finasteride! Not only that, it can take care of more of your DHT, it starts working faster, and stays in your system for much longer. 1 to 5 mg ED is all you need, and it also keeps that prostate down during your cycles. In my book, this is a win/win situation.
  2. PROPECIA® (Finasteride) - Next to Viagra, this drug may have had one of the all time record advertising budgets. Finasteride is a hair loss prevention / regrowth drug. Recommended dose is 1 mg ED and after 6 to 12 months the user may achieve positive results. The reason I write "big 4" in the title of this thread is that it may not be necessary to use both Dutasteride and Finasteride, although there are no known drug interactions. I say roll with Dutasteride if you can and if not then use Finasteride.
  3. ROGAINE® (Minoxidil) - Cheap to buy generic at target in three month supply, Minoxidil blocks DHT on the scalp. After handling DHT within the body via Dutasteride or Finasteride, you can also stop the damage of DHT on the scalp. Use twice a day. I use it after my morning shower and after my workout shower.
  4. NIOXIN® (Cleanser, Conditioner, and Treatment) - Use these Nioxin products as your daily shampoo and conditioner. They work on the scalp to ensure that your skin is healthy. Shampoo removes impurities that clog follicles, including DHT. The conditioner keeps the scalp moisturized. The treatment adds botanicals and nutrients to the scalp skin.
  5. NIZORAL® (A-D Shampoo) - Ketoconazole, the main ingredient in Nizoral, acts as a relatively mild anti-androgen. (Androgen binds to hair follicles and over time shrinks them down, causing thinner and thinner hair.) Use this shampoo once a week for help with DHT.

This hair regiment is not difficult to maintain, and can provide great results. I went from losing my hair to growing it back! It takes a few months to start working, so for the first 6 months have patience. Passing the 1 to 2 year markers using the "Big 4" regiment should yield significant hair gains, or at the very least put an end to your loss.

This article assumes appropriate nutrition, hydration, and sleep.

Peace,

Your heir loss regimen would become much more simplified if you fellas received a hair transplant.

It's yours forever, no more creams, lotions, shampoos or drugs to take and those transplanted hairs are NOT under the influenced of AAS or DHT!

Most facilities will work with patients financially and what's even more important AFTER roughly FIVE YEARS of using TWO hair loss "maintenance therapy" drugs, you could have paid for the transplant!

Check it out guys before committing to never ending "therapy".

Some minor corrections from the first post. Minoxidil (Rogaine) does nothing with DHT, it's simply a re-growth agent. Fina/Duta do nothing for regrowth, they only block the conversion of DHT in the body which helps to stop or slow down hair loss, if it's related to DHT. They can regrow hair in the sense that it's not falling out anymore so your hair has a chance to grow, but only Rogaine causes new growth directly. For anyone who doesn't want to take fina/duta due to possible side effects, some people are having great results with an experimental drug called RU58841. It's a topical anti-androgen cream that you put on 1-2x/day that supposedly is just as strong as Propecia (finasteride) but without the systematic effects.

I wish this were true about the cost. Even the smallest HT for a tiny area will run you $6000. Rogaine costs about $100/year while generic fina or duta will run you about $30/year. I don't have any bald spots but my hair has been thinning over the years so I spoke to a doctor just to see what it's all about in case I ever need one. The doctor randomly asked me if I was on steroids when I walked in because of my build and he said the reason he's asking is because for reasons unknown most of the guys who look like they use don't have as good of a result with the HT's as others. He says it's not related to DHT and doesn't understand why, but it's something he's been noticing over the years. This doctor is known as one of the top 3 in the world at HT's, he invented some of the methods used.

Prices are all over the place... ^^

This prick I worked for years ago only had a bald spot in the back, he paid out the ass and the transplants didn't hold.. Then he paid out the ass AGAIN with another doctor and that one didn't hold either.. This has held me back.. Anyone know the reason for this?
