Consider the fact that a young man with MPB does not go from a Norwood 1 to a Norwood 6 or 7 overnight. It sometimes takes several decades. Does it seem reasonable that the results of a “cure” could also be very gradual? I have put a theory of mine to the test and over the last 2.5 years, my hair has become significantly thicker. Friends I haven’t seen for a while have noticed. My theory is based upon studies by George Cotsarelis and Valerie Horsley. DHT not only affects hair follicles genetically predetermined to miniaturize. DHT affects the scalp as well. Notice that your bald areas feel thin and hard. DHT depletes the adipose layer in genetically predetermined areas. Valerie Horsley’s study indicated that adipose signals blood platelets to release growth factors. Lack of growth factors from the blood sends hair follicles into telogen where damaged follicles are attacked by a person’s own immune system. That’s my theory in a nutshell.
My theory related to correcting the damage done by DHT involves the use of existing products and not experimental products that need to be purchased online from Chinese Websites.
4.) Triamcinolone Acetonide
Triamcinolone Acetonide is a medium strength steroid available by prescription that has a listed side effect of excessive hair growth. Triamcinolone Acetonide inhibits ones immune system from attacking hair follicles sent into telogen by a lack of blood platelet growth factors.
I don’t even use Propecia or Avodart and I’m seeing a significant noticeable but gradual improvement. I have noted that Propecia and Avodart feminizes the male scalp improving the adipose layer.
Here is one of the keys that made all of the difference:
Our study demonstrates that exercise can acutely increase EPCs and CACs. Given the ability of these cell populations to promote angiogenesis and vascular regeneration, the exercise-induced cell mobilization may serve as a physiologic repair or compensation mechanism.
I’m not talking about general bodybuilding workouts, I’m referring to scalp muscle resistance exercises with one’s head tipped down after using Rogaine.
Bald scalp has been observed to be deficient in blood vessels and George Cotsarelis determined that balding scalp has a marked deficiency of progenitor cells.
Try this for several months:
Take a shower, dry your hair and rub Rogaine foam into your scalp. With your head tipped down, place your open hands on both sides of your scalp (sides of your head) and force the skin toward the top of your head with your hands. Focusing on your scalp muscles, force your hands in the opposite direction. Do one hundred of these resistance exercises morning and evening.
Here is why this works and it would be worthwhile for you skeptics to look this up. Exercising the scalp muscles directly promotes neovascularization and progenitor cell creation which George Cotsarelis found to be deficient in balding scalp.
Hair restoration physicians have found that scalp hair transplants thin in the recipient area over a few decades. This is because of what I mentioned earlier, DHT affects balding scalp to the point it no longer supports long-term healthy hair growth.
