So I’ve been lurking on another website on hair loss and many there have devised a homemade follicular neogenesis procedure. This is based on the work by Cotsarelis and Fuchs, as well as the new startup Follica, Inc. It’d be great to know what you all think of this procedure.
Mix lithium orotate or chloride (1 1/2 crushed pills) with diemythl sulfoxide or DMSO (1 tsp of liquid) and caffeine (2 tsps of powder). Mix thoroughly in a bowl. These topicals appear to increase WNT signalling.
Stir powder mixture into na 8 oz solution of 50% water plus 50% ethyl alcohol. This solution should increase absorption by decreasing particle size of powder. After thoroughly mixing pour solution in a spray bottle or dropper.
Use a dermaroller or lancet to gently wound the scalp. This creates wounding on the scalp that MAY mimic the wounding necessary to create-stem cell like conditions for new hair growth.
Spray solution directly on scalp.
Do spraying and wounding several times a week. What is exciting about this procedure is that the goal of this is NOT to keep your hair but rather create new hair by inducing WNT protein signaling (hence the topicals plus wounding).
