  1. I've been using it for 2 months, I apply and massage the oil to my head and leave it on over night. Before rosemary, when i brush through my hair with my hands, 4-5 hairs fall out, after rosemary it's 0-2. I've been doing the test for a long while. Skeptical still but I'm going to give it a full 6 months to see if there's any potential growth. Also, one time after washing my hair I then went for 3 days without touching anything, just to see if it would go back to the old 4-5-6 hairs falling off, it was still 0-2, it might really be effective, it's just too early to tell, but if it really does stop DHT from binding to the hair follicles, that would be amazing.
  2. I thought I would post an update, finally got around to doing another test, this time Test/Free test/DHT, here are my results attached. Compared to a result that I did not post here which was done during the summer, my testosterone was about 20 pg/ml, now it's at around 27, and compared to the result from 2020, my free testosterone is a bit higher. Still no side effects from using both, zero problems. On an additional note, since reducing DHT my sweat doesn't smell that strongly, it's very faint, and I have no more acne/inflammation on my back, it used to be full of zits. Hope this helps someone, Saw Palmetto/Stinging Nettle Root are pretty cheap methods for controlling your hormones, and the results have been consistent.
  3. I wanted to share my short story here. About 2 years ago at age 22 my first signs of hair loss had shown, I experienced hair thinning on my entire head and some loss, though minimal, mostly major miniaturization, but it was noticeable. After much research and thought I decided to risk it and give Saw Palmetto 550 mg a chance before trying anything more serious (like fin/min), to see how I would react. I've also linked some cropped pictures of laboratory test results below that were taken. The picture with the highest DHT of almost 3300 PG/ML was in September of 2020, up to this point I was only experimenting with natural topical solutions, and although for example the Jamaican castor oil I was using helped to prevent further loss, it didn't help with the hair density so I wanted to try something else. The second picture of 1890 PG/ML was after 2 months of Saw Palmetto 550mg x2 a day, started using it in Jan/Feb of this year and did the lab result in March, and the third lab test is from the month of May, after introducing Stinging Nettle Root tea once a day in tandem with Saw Palmetto, from March to May, it completely stabilized and was within normal range. Just for experimental purposes I stopped using both SP/SNR for about a month and a half and wouldn't you know it, DHT levels started rising again, who'd have thought? I quickly got back on the regime again and it stabilized. Regarding Saw Palmetto I only had "side effects" for the first few days where erections were very weak, after that everything went back to normal and I haven't experienced any side effects, neither from SP nor Stinging Nettle Root. People did comment that they see a big difference from a couple of months and now regarding my hair, though I'm not satisfied yet. Though I can definitely see a lot less hairs fall out now when I stroke through my hair, It used to be 10-15, now it's 2-5 hairs, so I legit think it's worth a try before going on any meds, but I think it will take a long time to see improvement, still, I halted all further hair loss.
  4. Quite surprising to hear how differently everyone reacts to these products. I've been taking saw palmetto 550 mg 2 times a day for about 6 months now, I've only had "side effects" for the first 3 days where I would have low erections, then everything went back to normal and never experienced anything again. Weirdly enough I read topical DUT gives less sides than topical FIN, so maybe give that a try but start with 0.25ml 2 times a week and increase it gradually, see how it goes.
