And that I rarely , in fact I have never seen it discussed
you keep talking about ICX and all their progress, and you want to see if they can achieve xyz results as far as percentage of regrowth, and hopefully it will stand on its own, with no transplant. This would be ideal
What I do not see discussed, is making ICX, state the balding status of their trial patients. That is, what is the status of the men in the study, how long have they been losing their hair. Are they just thinning or are they slick bald for 10 years in their bald areas that are being tested.
I have discovered over the last 20 + years in my regrowth, with many different regimens, that this is the make or break information that determines whether you are capable of getting regrowth.
When I first started thinning, and most of my follicles, though dying, were still alive, or lets put it this way, capable of producing hair., it was relatively easy to get regrowth, even with vitamins and minerals. As the years passed, my crown died, I was doing nothing to address DHT , and my hair slowly deteriorated overall. When I started on DHT blockers, or inhibitors, as a lot of guys like to call them, My hair did a complete reversal since 1999. The paper thin sides thickened to about triple the thickness of what they were previously, and the see through hair on top, filled in, and thickened immensely. Since then my hair has not deteriorated one bit. However, the crown, in my opinion, is dead. It was slick bald for at least 10 yrs before I added the dht blockers. It did not respond AT ALL…TO ANYTHING I tried, after that point, Including niz cream. While the rest of the hair in the thinning areas, it was almost like I had a hair transplant, Amazing transformation.
That is why, to me it is critical to know the balding status of these trial patients, BEFORE they started the trial. How long have they been thinning. is their hair just thinning, or do they have slick bald areas. If they have slick bald areas, how long have these areas been this way, ! yr? 10 yrs?
These questions are critical, in my experience.
If their test subjects are just thinning, and they lump them all into the same category of guys losing their hair, no matter what their status, this to me is deceptive.
To imply that just because they got a lot of regrowth, on these thinning patients, means that a guy who is slick bald for 10 yrs will get the same result, is ludicrous.
Yet I do not see this discussed on the board
