https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6026438/ Although Recycling transplanted hair is a reasonable technology, the need for this obscures the fact that to move it means that it may have been done wrong in the first place. Doing it right is better than doing it wrong and then having to move the hair as this article shows.
Many readers ask about the morphology of their hairs falling out and how it relates to Male Pattern Balding. We can lose about 100 hairs a day and the morphology of each hairs are variable. The miniaturized hairs are skinny and thinner as the hairs may be going into the telogen phase. Some hairs that […]
You are essentially correct. As it miniaturizes, hair becomes thinner and eventually ceases to regrow. Note the diagram on this page to see what miniaturization looks like in various stages.
A non-balding person can lose 100 to 200 hairs a day. These hairs can be thick or thin, miniaturized or non-miniaturized. The good news is there are likely 100 to 200 new hairs growing at other areas of the scalp. You cannot say miniaturized hairs represent hairs that are destined for baldness. It may just […]
Finasteride has a very short half life. If you have a leaking bucket, and it dripped slowly and you decided to stop the drip for every other day, it would just take longer for the bucket to empty, but it will eventually empty. Think of your hair as the bucket full of water, dripping out […]
The published information on hair regrowth from Propecia is best documented in the crown. I am convinced that there are good results in the frontal area behind the hairline in people your age (under 26) with recent hair loss or hair thinning. You must stay the course. Yes, it can work earlier, but it will […]
Steroids can get absorbed through skin if being used on a large area of body surface, or if they are used with occlusive dressings. In these situations, the blood steroid level may go up and it will cause suppression of the adrenal gland. Steroids that are being used for autoimmune diseases like psoriasis shouldn’t affect […]
I never suggested that ethanol be used. I generally do not like to recommend anything except for the FDA prescribed dose for finasteride, but have shown information that is reflective of my educated readership. If you want to drink vodka, I would tell you that you should do what you want, but do not tie […]
I see a lot of people who use derma rolling/stamping. Creating small holes in my head feels like it mainly creates damage. Can somebody explain me what it is used for and how it should improve the hair situation? Reddit posted a full ‘How to Do Microneedling’ here: https://www.reddit.com/r/tressless/wiki/microneedling/ When microneedling is done correctly (controlled […]
I am 14 months into finasteride (20M) and still shed a lot of small/ medium hairs a day. I started minox and Microneedle for the temples 3 weeks ago. My scalp is itching a lot as well. I am in doubt about starting Dutasteride since I am 20 years old. Can somebody please give some […]
https://news.sky.com/story/scientific-breakthrough-could-help-develop-new-hair-loss-treatments-12726195 This is a big breakthrough because now with this technique, we can study drugs and their impact on hair cycling. Hopefully, we can grow genetically impacted hairs for balding and see what it takes to reverse the balding process with greater ease
The range where these stem cells are more heavily concentrated is the area between 0.5 and 1.5mm (Click on photo to enlarge). If the needles get into this area, they will produce internal injuries to the fat in this area and that starts the cascade that induces stem cell response. I labeled it “Cycling Stem […]
Indeed, but this decrease in testosterone over the years does not seem to have an affect on the amount of hair loss, which is somewhat counterintuitive. Not at all. Genetic hair loss has ingrained in each follicular unit of the scalp, a biological clock that limits how many growth cycles it has. The fewer the […]
I started out 1.5mm, but now I’m concerned about scar tissue. I’ve heard 0.6mm might be better, but the redness goes away pretty fast. I started out doing once-a-week needling, but then I’ve seen people who did it twice a week at a lower depth followed by minoxidil that had great results Microneedling depth should be […]
