Hey Guys!


#1

Anybody recognize my username? Yep, it’s me, the original cueball… the guy who used to fight with JTR and a few other combative optimists. I was the one who said that a cure to (severe) baldness wouldn’t come until they can re-grow organs, or at least cure gray hair for crying out loud. Of course, JTR cursed me and said hair is much simpler than that… and so on.

I’m finally bored with life again so I’ve returned to this forum to see how Intercytex is doing with their hair multiplication TRC, but it looks like they’ve faded awat along with all other hope. I used to read this forum since 2002 and I’ve lost count of all of the treatments that got everyone all excited that the cure was right around the corner (or at least “5 years away”).

Now I see that the best hope currently for hair regeneration is in a treatment for wounded dogs? Uuuggghhhh…!!! Last I checked, people don’t grow fur on their heads. Lots of pics of dogs or hairless mice growing back their fur. I remember people talked on this forum about investing a lot of money in some of these schemes. How many times do scammers have to go after bald guys for money? We must be considered by most people to be the “richest but most gullible” people on earth. Hold on to your wallet guys, at least you’ve got that going for you.

Just my 2 cents. Now, let the eggs start flying… (cueball ducking 4 cover!)

dude, i remember u, i haven’t been reading the forum much lately, came back yesterday and saw all these posts about follica, funny how there s always a spark of hope somewhere, from gho to bazan, bazan to bosley, then interctex, and now we have this stuff that they use on pets, hehe, i hope they will get it right before i totally lost interest in fixing my hair.

last i checked buttgaser was doing very well on dutasteride, at least that s what he claimed, JTR probably gave up waiting for HM like most of us, i think it must be a devastating blow for jtr that gho and bazan turned out to be a big nothing after all,

i guess it s true, as you get older, hair becomes less important, there s nothing wrong with going bald naturally, just dont spot an ugly combover and life will be just fine

Good to see you Spanish Dude and the rest of you guys too! I’ve mellowed a lot since the good ol’ days (when most of us thought the big break-through was right around the corner but I was starting to get pessimistic). I must admit that JTR had some interesting posts to read, but it was like a cross between reading science fiction and the book of revelation from the bible. He seemed to be intelligent but just wouldn’t accept anyone else’s opinion if it differed from his. Well, who turned out to be right after all these years? I’ll give you a hint… if he were right then we’d all be making appointments to get HM with our local HT doctor THIS year. This is one case where I wish I had been wrong. Whatever happened to James Bond? He had intelligent posts yet he didn’t try to control our thinking. I remember being here so long ago that most of the original posters are gone. Does anybody remember Trey and the other guy (I forget his name) who were guinea pigs for that topical treatment (which turned out to be another scam). That was way back around 2002 (when we all thought Gho was “late” in releasing HM!) Unfortunately, I think I’m correct in assuming that there will at least be a treatment for gray hair before we see a real treatment for hairloss. Anyway, I’m still hoping for a miracle like the rest of you; otherwise I wouldn’t be here. But I just don’t see anything here to put my hope in. Let’s hope I’m wrong. I’m hoping for the best but preparing for the worst.


#10

hey man! what’s up ? remember me, i’ve grown old too like the rest of the old generation forum guys (exept JTR who’s gone into hyperspace) :slight_smile:

» But I just don’t see anything here to put my hope in.

that’s pretty much the global trend now. Some interesting “five years away” projects, as usual. Only the named changed afterall.


#11

haha,

Yeah, ICX probably failed (wont be on the market any time soon)

Aderans - they stopped publishing any news

Follica - will be on the market maybe if everything is perfect in 5 years haha

and ACell probably is a bit overhyped as well so dont put much hopes on it.

All in all, its going to be 2012 and we are all going to be bald … thats almost sure.


#12

no kidding :slight_smile:

Home made follica experiments are the only real hope that could deliver in a time < 5 years

Is there any reason for speculating about timelines? I mean none of us really know, so there really is no reason. The only reason I see is to upset others and maybe yourself because you feel kind of down because of that. So there is no meaning in doing that then. Just follow what’s happening and wait, we can’t do much more.

Agreed. None of us really have a clue. My biggest hope right now is that follica will release some really good results within the next 1-2 years. If this happens then waiting the rest of the time won’t be so frustrating

stop upseting us with your naive expectations please :smiley:

I remember FatalEvolution, and some of the rest of you. Okay, here’s a good question for some of you… Do you remember Waseda? That’s who the Topicals forum used to be named after. Now the HM forum is named after Benji and Baccy. Remember the Zix formula? Even that idea seems to have faded away and I think it got better results than just about anything else I’ve seen here. I love all these home-made experiments but let’s face it, nobody has shown an after picture that has made me envious of their great new hair style. I guess when we have a picture there won’t be any need to come back here and speculate because a picture is worth a thousand words. But it sure would be wonderful to see this site filled with pictures and discussions about the great results people are getting from something that actually works. I wonder if that day will come before I’m retired and don’t care anymore.

if you guys are sitting home cheerleading a guy who is sandpapering his own head
perhaps you need a new hobby…or a reality check

You guys can indiscriminately comdemn all the current HM methods as being nowhere near reality if you like, but I see it differently.

For decades we’ve had HM methods that couldn’t produce anything cosmetically visible despite millions being spent on it.

But in regards to the science behind the Folica project, we’ve got stuff like this happening BY ACCIDENT on unrelated patients making no efforts on their hair:

Never mind the timelines to market debates. We were debating ourselves hoarse with ICX’s early timeline, all in hopes of having a chance to pay thousands of dollars for results that would be a small fraction of this significant.

These wounding/EGF-R patient pics are the first time something has produced results worth looking twice at. (And the nose pic should slam the door shut about whether this is just freshly-balded hairs being reawakened like with a traditional MPB med.) It’s plain as day that we’re looking at the creation of all-new follicles on adult balded skin here, probably without any direction or color issues to wrestle with.

I don’t see how you guys can fail to see this as a major improvement on our situation from a few years ago. (Can anyone name another improvement on the HM situation that was this significant EVER?)


#19

hair is extremely complex as we all know
lets assume you can get hair to grow on a bald scalp…or skin

how can you possibly determine the direction? you cant, I guarantee you this will not be able to be controlled
if the direction is off or incorrect, you look like a freak

so you are forced to get a hair transplant, with this regenerated hair
which is strange if for example the guy whose pic you posted with misdirected hair was in this situation what do you do? remove the miscolored misdirected hair and reimplant it and hope that it grows

you guys seem to gloss over these issues


#20

cal, are these follica pics that u posted? they are amazing.
