lets say you are losing 300 hairs per day, for a few months, lets say 350, which i was. This happened in 1999, 10 yrs into my thinning hair problem, and I had until then used only vitamins and minerals with variable success , succeeding in slowing down but not stopping the progression of my balding. In 1999 suddenly i started a massive, shed. No matter if I ate a perfect diet, no matter what supplements i took that I had always relied on, it did no good, the shed continued. It was then that i added the saw palmetto, out of desperation. since i had heard it is helpful for thinning hair.
lets say normal is 100 per day so that is 250 per day above normal for 60 days thats 15,000 hairs lost beyond the normal replacement cycle . You might be replacing your hair normally but it continues to shed at a highly abnormal rate so you basically view yourself getting thinner and thinner. If you can bring your thinning back down to a normal level, personally i think those that say 100 hairs per day is normal are too high, i don’t lose anywhere near that many…anyway, if you can normalize your fallout, all that hair that was shedding like crazy will replace itself normally then stay put now, so for all practical purposes you are regrowing that hair…you will notice a huge thickening and additional hair on the head if you can stop a massive shedding
so in my opinion thats what happened when i added the SP, I went from about 300 hairs per day, loss down to about 20 hairs per day, within 3 weeks. i would say within a year i had 25 percent more hair on my head that was shedding before and now was allowed to replace itself and stay put on my head
now this may not be what guys traditionally think of when they talk about regrowth, but its only semantics. If you notice hair on your hair that was not there 6 months ago, if your see through hair that is 85 percent gone, is now no longer see through, what is the difference how it happened. To me I consider that regrowth. If I had not added my dht blockers, granted I am a lucky responder…I feel my top would have been bald within 2 yrs, and now it looks better than it did in 1999/ Now the crown was gone, for 10 yrs before i added saw palmetto, so i did not expect results and it has not responded at all to any regimen i have tried. but the sides back, and top front have thickened i would say about to three times the thickness in 1999 before i added the dht blockers. Granted much of this was a massive shed that regrew, but to me it makes no difference, what matters is my hair has stabilized and now looks much better than before. who can ask more than that?
I only wish this regimen works on everyone the same as it did for me.
Just proposing another way to look at the word regrowth
