So guys just a update:
I have been using the regenpure DR and NT. DR has been drying out my hair and NT isnt really nourishing at all. So i have reverted back to my original conditioner to use after i use DR.
Also i will be starting to use Jarrow Formulas Toco-Sorb soon which is the vitamin e complex that was originally used in the study for hair loss, not toco-8.
I heard saw palmetto blocks DHT
Lots of stuff available here, but I think steroids can not be harmful if it use by advice of expert.
I'm currently adding Hyaluronic acid into my hair-loss prevention regime. Has any one had any results? I am finding that my scalp/hair doesn't seem as dry hence resulting in healthier hair
Hyaluronic Acid in Scalp Tissue and Hair Follicles
Structurally the scalp is identical to the skin tissue located throughout the body except it also contains about 100,000 hair follicles that give rise to hair. Actually the hair and the hair follicle are a derivative of skin tissue. There are two distinctive skin layers, one, the epidermis (outer layer) which gives rise to the protective shield of the body and the other, the dermal layer (deep layer) which makes up the bulk of the skin and is where the hair follicle is located. This dermal layer is composed of connective tissue and the connective tissue, with its gelatinous fluid like characteristics provides support, nourishes and hydrates the deep layers of the scalp. The result is healthy lustrous hair and a moisturized scalp. Again, all of this is made possible because of the presence of HA in the scalp.
Nice and useful info you post.
Holy crap. This thread is 100+ pages long. I've read through much of it but not all of it. I'm 2 days into my first cycle - 30/30/30/30 epistane. This is the first and only time I am going to do PH. If I ever do another cycle it will be the real stuff. I'm concerned about hair loss. I've been on generic proscar (finasteride) 5mg that I cut into 1/4's for about 3 years. I also do Kirkland brand Minoxidil (Rogaine) foam from Costco. It seems it's stopped my hairloss, or at least slowed it down tremendously. My question is, should I up my finasteride dosage while on my epistane cycle? Maybe take a half pill (2.5 mg) or a whole pill (5mg) daily, instead of a 1/4 pill (1.25 mg) daily?I suppose keeping my hair takes precedent over gains,but at the same time I don't want all this work I'm doing this month to be wasted. What I discovered in my research is that epistane is practically identical to DHT. Therefore if finasteride blocks DHT, it's going to also block epistane. What I don't know is if this method of blocking occurs somehow and somewhere outside the scope of what matters for muscle gains. Maybe it only blocks somehow in the mechanisms involving hair loss? I don't think we would be that lucky. Logic would say that's is ridiculous to take a DHT blocker like finasteride while on epistane. Yet it seems everybody is doing it, right? Problems with increasing to 5mg not only effecting gains but hugely effecting libido. My doctor said that the only people that should ever take a full 5mg finasteride dose are prostate cancer patients. Truth is that I am not ****ing right now, so I don't care about not being able to get it up for a month. I'm mainly concerned about blocking my gains. So what to do? Thanks.
I've been on Proscar/Propecia for like 12 years, and minoxidil as well. Together they stopped or at least dramatically slowed down my hair loss. Don't worry about 4 weeks of Epi. That won't do anything to your hairline. I've run several Epi cycles and it made no difference to my head. Epi is NOT DHT, but it is similar. Finasteride aka Proscar, is a type 2 5a reductase inhibitor. It does not "block DHT," it only prevents testosterone from being 5 alpha reduced to DHT, so it lowers your DHT levels. The prohormones and steroids you'd need to worry about would be ones (like testosterone) that interact with the 5AR enzyme and get reduced to DHT. So if you were using T, then a bit more finasteride might be called for, but not for Epi.
Wow. Thank you man. Very informative. That's a relief. I will keep it at 1.25 daily.
So if and when I move over to real gear, what would be a good choice that would not contribute to my hair loss? Obviously stay away from test. What about primobolan or letrozle?
Keep in mind that when on epi your test levels will be reduced so you could get off the fina til after cycle. Your DHT levels will be very low during cycle already.
That's right! I knew that about my test levels post cycle, but never considered how that might effect needing to take my daily finasteride. Thanks you! Because I'm freaked out over losing hair, I will probably continue to take the 1/4 pill daily always - even post cycle, unless some serious libido problems occur.
That is a question that I am constantly researching. It really does suck, because guys like us have very limited options. Testosterone really should be the base around which all cycles are built, but it's off limits for us. The prohormone version of "tren," (dienolone) is not very androgenic and is highly anabolic. Some people will tell you otherwise, but they are confusing it with actual trenbolone and they are WRONG. http://www.mindandmuscle.net/article...nes-dienolone/ That makes it fairly safe for your hair, but it's a very suppressive compound, and most people would advise running either test, or something that converts to DHT to combat sides, but both of those are a no-go for us. Oral Turinabol is a hair-safe compound, but it's an oral methylated compound, so you might as well just use Hdrol.
I'm a little concerned too that you might not have a good PCT lined up. Could you say what you're planning for that?
As for your PCT it looks great for EPI cycle. A better one would be: Nolva at your current protocol and introduce DAA at 3/3/3/3/3/3grams and erase at 0/0/3/3/2/1.
Dont use fina with deca. It reduces it to a less potent hormone. Waste of deca.
