Hair Cycling


#1

Do you guys think that the plucked hairs will cycle normally and stay terminal? Do you feel like there is more of a chance that they will cycle or that they would die after one growth stage and can you explain why you would feel either way biologically or is completely a toss-up at this point and nobody really has any idea still?

Do you guys think that ARI’s injected (just) hair CELLS will cycle normally and stay terminal - once they grow? :surprised:

To sum it up its all about cells which are dht resistant, they got the cycling in them.

I think we can pretty much assume that in the absence of ACell, the plucked hairs definitely don’t cycle after implantation, and may even fall out within a few weeks to a few months. Reason: doctors have been testing with plucked hairs (without ACell) for a few years, and if plucked hairs were yielding permanent new hairs in the implant sites, we’d know about it by now, and this would mean MPB were essentially cured. Since no such announcement has been made, we can assume that transplanting plucked hairs ALONE does not work.

I think that with ACell, we don’t know yet. The doctors seem to be implying or hoping that plucked hairs, treated with ACell, will cycle and be permanent, but I have yet to see real proof. I think we should know soon, but I for one am not going to have autocloning performed on myself until I do know.

After the implanted hairs regrow new follicles, pluck the hairs from those follicles to see if those new follicles will grow hair a second time.

It’s probably not 100% foolproof way to verify that those follicles are good for at least two natural hair cycles–but it beats sitting aroud waiting 3-6 years for them to cycle naturally.

I believe Cooley said he did this, and that the hair grew back.

Dr Hitzig was trying Autocloning without Acell for years, his success rate was very low (5% or less I believe), however, when it did work my understanding is that the hair that grew cycled normally and was just like a normal hair.

I think this gives us a reason to at least be hopeful.

If he plucked it during its first cycle and it regrew is that enough to tell us the hairs are DHT resistant? Or is that enough to tell us it will actually cycle 3 years later?

Once they find the right method and it’s working to its full potential the hair should cycle normally and stay terminal, so yes.

The plucked hairs implanted without Acell didn’t have a new follicle form around them though did they?

how are you in a position to make such a statement? the truth is you dont know… frankly, no one knows. But chances seem good that they will…

Here is something to chew …

For myself, I don’t need an answer (resp. study) by Dr. Rassman concerning this issue.

Iron Man, could you give me your opinion if plucking the placed hairs will be enough to show that they cycle and are not affected by DHT? Do you think that if after a transplanted plucked hair is placed in the recipient region and is terminal then is plucked again and regrows another terminal hair is sufficient to deem it to really work for the long term?

of course nobody knows but he asked if I think they will stay and I gave my opinion, nothing more. I personally see no reason why they wouldn’t be terminal and DHT resistant seeing as they are using a cell based method which is where the DNA for DHT sensitivity comes from as far as I know, nothing in the world is certain but I personally think the hairs they make will stay.

So can we fuc_king stop with the monkey business and stay focussed.

WILL THE PLUCKED HAIRS CYCLE OR NOT

Just an normal answer no cryptic oder funny bullsh_it anymore

NOBODY KNOWS YET.
