Post The Best Topical Formualtion Ever?

I'm a 33 yr old Biochemist, with only frontal hairloss. I suspect it may be much more without my intervention some years back.

I have done lots of internet reseach as well as meta analysis of scientific research on this topic, but would like others input.

I have found regular Minoxidil 5% with several DHT blockers (beta-sistosterol etc) as well as GHK-Cu, and Tretinoin aka Retin-A (NOT retinol, may sound the same but its not) work well.

What do others think, what would you have in your best ever topical solution?

I never used any products to try to stop my hair loss i just thought it was apart of life... but im also older than you so there want as many resources around when i first started losing

my nephew on the other hand is about 26 and i know hes been using propecia for a few years now and says its working well. He said the only downside is the cost, i dont know if its the same everywhere but here in pa its 80 somthing a month. Does anyone know of a gerneric propecia that works just the same for less money?

Smile Generic finasteride (Propecia)

Yes, two brands I know and beleive to be as stated: finasteride. They are Fincar, and Fistide. Cheapest to buy 5mg and cut/break into 4 (this will give you approx 1.25mg per day which is optimal for hairloss).

I have run an NMR spectrum at a University Lab on the first and it did contain the drug as stated.

I'm now using the other brand because its cheaper and believe its good too.

You should pay about ?14.99 GBP or $24 USD for 30 x 5mg, so 4 months supply if split into four.

Hope this helps.

Copper peptide GHK-Cu - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

GHK-Cu was clinically proven to improve http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hair_transplantation outcome, no need to buy GraftCyte, but better to obtain pure powder as it degrades in solution if not refidgerated.
