Hair Loss Prevention

  1. Big vungra ,

    You seem well read in this area. Well my situation is i have my hair, maybe a bit of a receding hairline, but not that noticable. My Father has gone 70 % bald. I am 24 and want to prevent hairloss before it even starts. So i might have a slight receding hairline or its a widows peak REGARDLESS ive been using nizoral 1 % and it has seemed to thicken my hair up.

    now im planning on doing a superdrol cycle in the future, would you recommend that
    a stronger haircare product than nizoral 1 % is used for a three week superdrol cycle? (like AA, spiro, or the ket powder CNS carries that i can put in my favorite smelling shampoo and make a good dht protectant, and do you you know the formula of how much ket powder to put in a normal 15 fluid ounces?

    Thank you!


  2. finasteride only blocks DHT at the scalp correct? just wanted to know because i think i'm certain im' going to be running it with SD or ergo dont want to hinder gains though so hopefully at the scalp

  3. Finasteride will block DHT, to some extent, in your whole body. It's mainly used for enlarged prostates. You'll want to use topical Spironolactone.. It doesn't smell nice but it'll block a large portion of the DHT in your scalp...

  4. If one desires hair loss to halt or hopefully reverse, then a few areas need to be addresed. First off, topicals - any of them, generally for most people are not enough. Products such as AA or Spiro have short half lives and while very beneficial, they only give you protection during the few hours they are active. Nizoral is has benefits as well (I use it too), but it`s not powerful enough to be used alone. You need 24 hour DHT reduction in the scalp, only Finasteride or Dutasteride (I`m kinda afraid of Duta though) products are recommended in conjunction with topicals to truly give your follicles a fighting chance.

    If you have all your hair and are worried about not losing it during an AAS cycle I would use...
    Nizoral EOD (or ED if your head can take it)
    AA (am and pm)
    Spiro (pm)

    If you have lost hair or need to regrow, I would use the products above coupled with
    Minox 5% (am and pm)
    Finasteride (ED at anywhere from .05 to 1.25 mgs)
    Copper peptide products (Folligen, Tricomin, am and pm)

    I know that seems like a lot of stuff (it is), however once your hair starts to go, you`ll find it`s generally an uphill battle to try and get it back.

    If someone told me I could only have two of the above mentioned products to use, it would be Minox 5% and Finasteride.

    Applications of the products are very important, most people despise multiple applcations of solutions in their heads everday, of course. Lets us keep in mind, we as bodybuilders HAVE to eat 5-7 meals per day, train multiple times per week with high amounts of intensity and get good amounts of rest everynight to get optimal results, correct? So then applying some crud on your head haphazardly and taking a pill once a week won`t cut it. Basically if you want to keep or not lose hair - make sure you use the stuff everyday like you are supposed to.

  5. How do you apply gel when using AA, and Spiro. In the morning before you go out do you have to wait for these to dry, then are you able to put gel on your hair??? I just want to make sure there isnt any side effects or what not.

  6. remember, its not necessarily if you shed - it's if the hair grows back. I shed a ton - but it grows back, only the hairline is having the problem (but thats genetic). Hair transplant in a few years.

    as for Nioxin - hardly evidence that it kills DHT or prevents hairloss in anyway, i've tried it - it's awesome shampoo though.

    my experience(s) anyway

    I suppose it depends where the hair loss is, my temples are my only problem so I can style my hair and just spray the products on my temples. I don`t use Spiro in the morning cause it`s too hard to apply.

    Not sure of what kind of side effects you are speaking of.

    Is extra shedding using the spiro normal for the first few applications. I was using 5%.

  9. Spiro can cause excessive shedding during the first few weeks or so. Most of your DHT blocking/reducing products tend to do this. When I first started Finasteride I shed for over a month really bad, but a few months later my hair line looked good once again.

  10. For spiro use I would recommend Dr.Lee's 2% solution. It dosent have that spiro stench, and it goes on really easy. Although I experienced some initial shedding with minoxidil, I never had any shedding with a topical anti-androgen.

    5% spiro is really potent...when I tried to apply that it practically gave me a chemical burn!

  11. Is that really true about finasteride?

    Why does this happen?

    When Finasteride enters your system, it begins to stop the formation of DHT. The follicles being affected by DHT fall out slowly (or quickly in some cases), and as they begin to recycle again into stronger follicles, they grow back.

    OK. Your previous message seemed to imply that finasteride would actually be a cause of shedding initially, which made little sense to me. You're really talking about follicles DHT has already reached.

  14. What is the story with dr lees consultataion. It says your order will be cancelled if you do not do it. But there is no link to do it. I ordered with no consultation. Will my order really be cancelled. I have not gotton a email yet about a cancellation.

    Nope, you just won't receive anything. I tried doing this a couple years ago, because I didn't even know of a consultation....I eventually called them up after waiting a month for my order and they explained everything to me then. There is a link on minoxidil.com somewhere, you'll just have ot look for it.

  16. For those taking some form of finasteride:

    I was reading ALR's Building the Perfect Beast, and he mentions that taking Arimidex and/or Femara can fend of the weakened woody, squishy muscle side effects. I don't have it in front of me, but I can get back with doses if anyone wants.

    good to know. I am using 5% spiro with costco minoxidil and experienced some shedding, which I cannot afford. That was about 6 weeks ago, still hopeful for something to regrow.

  18. does AA cause shedding

    It does with some people. The thing with shedding is that some people do not really take notice of how many hairs lost in a day until they start using hair loss products on a regular basis. Then most people read about how product X,Y and Z can cause shedding and starts to freak. Someone even with no signs of MPB will lose somewhere between 50-100 per day.

    I didn't realize the number was that high?

  21. BV how about dutasteride. does anyone have experience w/ it or know where to get it. thanks.

  22. I've heard very mixed opinions on dutasteride, though I've never used it myself. Some report that it causes a host of side-effects, and it's especially likely to cause gyno. Try the forums at www.hairsite.com to pick up some info. Also know that a lot of guys who get results will just disappear from hairloss forums, never to be heard from again. I did.

    If you're looking for a place, try House Pharmacy (housepharmacy.com). Also Quality Health Inc., based in the UK. (qhi.co.uk)

  23. BV how about dutasteride. does anyone have experience w/ it or know where to get it. thanks.
    No idea bro, that's one chem I havent really looked into. Like I mentioned before, my personal experience with hair loss prevention begins and ends with the topicals,which have worked great for me.

    Trav is right on here...when you start thinking you're losing hair you count every hair you find. Grab a few hairs (~100) between your thumb and index finger and give them a good tug. Its normal for you to loose 3-7 hairs when you do this. Anything a lot more would be cause for concern.

  24. Been using Duta since Feb 03 and have had nothing but benifits from it. This being said I have heard of others that loose a large amounts of hair on it and no one knows why.

  25. Alright guys, need your advice here. Used AAS in the past with no issues (winny, eq, dbol, test, primo, deca, proviron). Recently started a EQ, prostanazol (prob the culprit) and 4-0HT cyp cycle. Recently, I noticed that the hair right above my temples is slightly thinning. This came as a shock to me as I actually have to cut my hair once a wk (myself) because it grows so fast, and use thinning sheers as it is so damn thick and course. I dropped the prostanazol after 4 weeks, and am continuing the EQ and 4-OHT cyp. I purchased some NIZORAL (non-rx strength) and have been using that 4x wk. I was contemplating using finasteride, as I have never had anything lower my libido, erections, etc.... Any advice guys would be greatly appreciated and I am open to suggestions. I do have some saw palmetto extract at my disposal but am weary of using that if it may infact block testosterone.....
    Also, I just ordered some spiro. I would not mind using that at night, but do not want to have to use tsomething during the day, if at all possible.
