Just my 2 cents


#1

I believe companies like ARI that basically reproduce hair from the donor area will help less than 50% of the baldies out there because you are essentially duplicating “old” hair so to speak. And of course- this would put Gho in the same classification. The true “cure” for ALL of us will come from technology such as Histogen or Follica where they are working to create an embryonic environment for a totally “new” hair to develop. I hope that more companies will focus on this technology instead of the prior.

Yes, the Histogen approach looks superior.
But we will see if they get it to work.

I don’t see how that matters. You are duplicating hair that is resistant to DHT. If it is growing in the donor area, there is no reason why it shouldn’t grow in the previously bald area of your head.

Donor hair is NOT totally resistent to DHT period. If you think it is you’re fooling yourself.

That’s true.

BTW - Your “Just my 2 cents” are really worth to discuss … :ok:

yeah, but what about Histogen’s baby hair?
If your scalp goes back to the embryo conditions, it will be like being born again. But this baby hair will encounter hot DHT kicking ass. We will see how long this baby hair endures.

edit: unless Histogen is able to program this embryonic state in a special way so that you get baby hairs, but not like the original ones, but DHT resistant ones instead.

Not all donor hairs are resistant to DHT, as we can see from the gradual thinning of donor regions as men age. However, for the average man, this donor area should also never become fully bald. If you can multiple these hairs and place them all over your scalp, theoretically, you may thin out over time, but never become fully bald.

Yeah and you’d gain like 30 years of good hair…and by the time it thins it won’t matter anymore

And: You can always go back and have it done again if the new hair is thinning out again. (And by then there might be lots of even more effective treatments.)


#11

Once I get my hair back from something like Aderans, I don’t plan on going through puberty again.

Remember how constantly horny you were during that time in your life? THAT is when the hairs really see the big androgen exposure.

except you may not have 30 years.

i’ve seen balding guys where their hair started thinning out even at the back in quick order. it all depends on your genes.

no hair is safe with DHT stalking the woods. keep all your hairs indoors and keep the 12 guage finasteride shotgun by your bed side.


#13

i haven’t seen any of guys who is completely bald. all of them have some sort of hair in their back of the head. and i believe if ari gets hm thing work then all people can enjoy full head of hair even if they need to have another hm procedure after 15-30 years. and if you say that most of people go completely bald then you can use some chest hair (i think my chest hair look quite similar to scalp hair, they are just shorter. mine is about 3-5 cm and this length is enough to have great full head of hair). don’t you even think you loose all of your hair (body, scalp) during your lifetime and you don’t have any donor hair left what you can multiply to have full head of hair. and i believe in the future the hm thing allows to “transplant” other people hair to your scalp if you need them (for example to the people who has alopecia areata and who has lost all of their hair).

Yeah true, or alopecia universalis. So there is really no issue with HM…the only problem is that it’s not here yet…

Histogen’s approach has nothing to do with an embryonic environment for new hair to develop.
They have their embryonic environment for they cells to produce a couple of proteins. they do it this way just becaust the production of the wanted proteins in in this special environment is much higher than usual.
they just need a high quantity. if they could produce it in another way, they would do it without this special environment but this method seems to work.

ok, assuming histogen’s method is superior at least in theory.Then, the question simply is:
if people in histogen give 3 years to themselfs in order to commercialize their product (yeah, at least outside EU/US)then, common sense should say that Aderans, with less advanced technology/method(in theory) than histogen must commercialize its product sooner than 3 years(and, in EU/US).otherwise all that effort and fundings are facing the danger of 'waste of time’
the second question is:
if, both of them were available now(and both work satisfactory), which one would you prefer?
if the answer is histogen, then my post has a point.
