Keeping the scalp in good shape for HM


#1

Ppl. are talking about the importance of keeping the scalp in shape so if and when HM comes out, are results can be the best they can be. How do we know if our scalp needs help? What are some of the things we should look out for- itching? flaking? Thanks.

Anti-inflammatory shampoos like ketoconazole or coal tar

Copper peptides (folligen, prox-n, tricomin) are very strong anti-inflammatories

Emu oil and tea tree oil are very anti-inflammatory

Finasteride if you are one it, helps suppress DHT and all things (like inflammation) that are downstream of it.

Generally anything good for baldness will be good for scalp health.

Do NOT make a classical HT

Even if you’re a totally bald Norwood 7 right now I’d still apply copper peptides (i.e., folligen/tricomin), keto/olamine/zinc pyr shampoos, oral dutas/finas, and for good luck I’d try out the LiCl/DMSO mixture plus wounding.

Best,
