Both of those drugs were originally created for something else. Minoxidil was originally tested as an oral medication for high blood pressure and some of the test subjects were growing hair, so they decide to make a topical spray for hair loss. Since they had already developed the drug, why not make some extra money on it.
Finisteride was first used as to treat enlarged prostates and it was eventually realized that many of the men were regrowing their hair, so they did some trials to see if finisteride was in fact growing hair on men who took it. So again, the drug was already created and the company figured they can make more money with additional uses.
undo hair transplant?
You can start washing your hair with baby shampoo, 72 hrs after surgery.
You are also allowed to soak their head in the bathtub with water and baby oil, to let the scabs slough off.
Please do not pick up scabs, it can dislodge the graft completely, pat them gently.
Sometimes the doctor recommends saline spraying to aid the healing process and this does not pose any threat to the graft.
What I really like about this is how they placed scattered hairs along the hairline to give it a much more natural look than various other clinics hairlines. Some clinics have been pretty good at this, but there are too many that create sort of a wall of hair at the hairline which can make it look like a hair transplant. You can really see the difference if you compare this hairline results to some others.
The 12 month pictures all have a photo filter to make it look air brushed to blur and smooth everything out and make it look better. It looks like it was a decent result, so why be deceiving and try to make it look more than it is by faking your photos. That's a big thumbs down by me for that. Be honest or don't post at all. 👎
Hi Paddy, he means 10mg which is equivalent to 10,000 mcg.
You are right in saying a good balanced diet should provide all the Biotin we need. As for overdoing it, Biotin is considered very safe and any excess is passed through the body.
On another note, one of your fellow Irishman, the Pogues’ Shane MacGowan says Guinness is the only proven hair loss treatment.
He's quoted here.
“They sell all those lotions to cure you of baldness… They don’t work. There is only one way to cure baldness – you pour Guinness over your head, collect it in a bucket, and drink it in the morning,” he says. “It’s proven to work.”
We all might be missing a trick there
