    Omega-3 EPA and DHA may be the solution to "male pattern baldness" / hair loss in men

    Follow up to my previous post on Omega-3s and Peat's flawed perspective on them (they increase dopamine and reduce learned helplessness i.e. high serotonin): https://raypeatforum.com/community/threads/peat-wrong-about-omega-3-dha-epa-increase-dopamine-and-lower-serotonin.41873/ Recent research...

    Stress (cortisol) causes hair loss

    Amazing study, which perfectly corroborates the findings of a previous study showing that estrogen (a cortisol promoter) also causes hair loss, while administering an estrogen-blocker reversed the hair loss.

    Topical DHT therapy promotes hair growth

    Despite mentioning it in another post on testosterone (T) treatment for hair loss, I thought that this study deserves its own post, just because its findings are so contradictory to the perennial dogma of "androgenic alopecia" - i.e. that androgens, and especially DHT, cause the male-pattern...

    Testosterone therapy (TRT) reverses hair loss (in women)

    The evidence undermining the fake/corrupt hypothesis of "androgenic alopecia" keeps accumulating. I really wish the study below was conducted in men instead of women, since its findings would have probably finally put an end to the debate as to whether androgens promote or inhibit hair growth...

    So What Explains Why Balding Men Have More Body Hair

    So conventional wisdom suggests that DHT is the cause of all genetic hair loss and that DHT is what causes facial and body hair to grow. Its pretty well documented that men with more body hair are more likely to go bald/are more often bald. What is also well documented is that males who are...

    Whatever Fixes Baldness Is Going To Transform The Entire Body In A Big Way, Right?

    For the past 8 years, I've made a weird habit of observing bald men of any age. There are striking physical and mental similarities between them, such as underdeveloped neck muscles, underdeveloped calves, cranial shape, abdominal fat distribution, ingratiating personality traits, social...

    Estrogen, Not Androgens, May Be The Cause Of Baldness

    A quick post about a study calling into question yet another dogma in medicine - i.e. that the "evil" androgens (especially DHT) are the causes of men losing their hair and getting prostate cancer. So, the "solution" modern medicine proposes is "chemical castration" with drugs like finasteride...

    5-AR Inhibitor Drugs Like Finasteride Cause Persistent ED And Lower Testosterone

    The FDA has denied for decades that the mainstream drugs for hair loss (MPB) and benign prostate enlargement (BPH) cause any persistent problems. It was in the minds of the users, the FDA said. Upon discontinuation, the problems were said to disappear within 2-4 weeks. But the reports on long...

    Hypothyroidism (Cortisol, Prolactin And Adrenal Hyperactivity) Causes Balding

    I wanted to post this as quite a few people have raised points about androgens causing hair loss. The so-called "male pattern baldness" (MPB) exists in women as well and is in fact quite common in older women (as it is in men) since 50%+ of older women have some stage of baldness as well. Unless...

    This is actually a follow up study and unfortunately was once again done in vitro and not in vivo. Nonetheless, the authors seem pretty confident that the approach works and in the actual experiment discovered that caffeine in concentrations of 0.005% - 0.0005% is several times more effective...
