  1. Thank you for the response Mikey - I guess a few follow up questions for you if you don't mind mikey? 1) what's the situation with fin? Is it doctor prescribed? Should I see one before starting on that path? 2) would it be wise to bypas the fin and head to HT route? Or maybe start the fin wait a few months then see how the shedding / growth works from there and plan/save for a HT - I understand this is more my for me only to decide but is there any major benefits to only using fin? 3)thank you for all your help! And any recommendations for surgeons?! Haha
  2. Thank you for the reply shera - so to give a little bit more of an idea as to what I'm doing to combat this... I have changed my diet to a paeolo so no sugars grains etc plus I go for a half hour jog everyday to get the blood flowing I am taking biotin 5,000 x 2 daily so morning and evening I am also taking pumpkin seed oil 10,000 x 2 daily again morning and evening I massage my temple areas 3/4 times a day and I am using peppermint oil, coconut, olive and rosemary for the evening massage followed with rapping my head overnight in a bag to keep the blood flowing around these areas.
