Well you said any ideas, so here goes: get Dutasteride from www.inhousepharmacy.com (Dr. Reddy’s if cost is an issue). Buy 99% aloe vera from Trader Joe’s. Every morning squeeze the 0.5mg into a dallop (some people say it should be 30 ml but I am not so exacting) of aloe vera. Mix it up. Rub it onto your scalp for a total of 3 minutes more or less (including initial application time) and do this every day.
For the first few days you might get side effects from the Dutasteride which also enters your bloodstream. For me the sides included headache, libido flagging, and foggy thinking sometimes. It should subside. The beauty of applying Dut straight to your head is it would likely do a much better job of suppressing scalp DHT than oral Dut or Finasteride ever really can. If you minimize the time it’s on your scalp, on the other hand, you are likely minimizing its entry into the bloodstream in the full quantities that cause the full side effects that people complain about with Dut (including me; I’ve had headaches and a flagged libido, though the latter hasn’t been a problem since I wanted to chill in the “burning up the ladies” department.
To counter some of Dut’s possible “breast” side effects, I take Super Miraforte from Life Extension. I take two of the tablets per day, not the four they suggest. One can find it online for about $32.
