    Green clay + apple cider vinegar hair & scalp mask - excellent results

    2 heaping tablespoons of any green clay mixed with 2 level tablespoons of organic apple cider vinegar was just enough to cover my head of hair here: The result has been the most balanced that my hair has ever felt. Would recommend to anyone 👍

    Finasteride vs Progesterone

    So, finasteride works similar to progesterone just because it increases serum progesterone by reducing its conversion to Dihydroprogesterone. What if I just use oral progesterone which is available in my country for hair loss? What the recommended dosage for standalone progesterone?

    Article On DHT’s role in hair modulation Hi Guys, just read this study as much as I can comprehend. Seems to suggest that DHT does modulate hair growth in the right balance. Could possibly be useful for someone out there.

    Ear wax testing as a reliable method for measuring long-term steroid levels

    Many of my readers already know about the unreliability of using steroid blood tests as diagnostic methods, except in cases where the values are so extreme that are unlikely to be temporary fluctuations. Saliva tests for steroids are even less reliable, even though combining both saliva and...

    Cold Sensation In Scalp

    I've been having this strange, cold feeling in my scalp for a while now. It's specifically on the right side of my head, closer to my temple. Which coincidentally is where most of my hair loss is. It tends to happen randomly, but certain activities cause it without fail, like sweeping or...

He also says taurine grows hair better than finastride, note this study was in an insect less than the size of an ant. I have never seen any case report with proof than...
