Collection of Emails – Frequently Asked Questions (Updated December 2011)
Hi Great site by the way, Right here's my problem , I'm 38 with some hair loss at the front. I’ve been talking proscar since march 2009 , I’ve not had any more hair loss since .
proscar seems to have stopped my hair loss completely , its thickened my hair as well since i've been on it. My dosage is 1.25mg a day , I cut the pills into quarters and skip the 5th day.
My main concern is I want to cycle for the first time , I’ve done some research on the net, your site being the best so far.. I'm only going to cycle with test enanthate and prob use some anavar as well..
What dosage of test enanthate should i use for my first cycle , 250mgs or 500mgs for 10 weeks and what dosage of proscar finasteride should i use ,1.25mg every day or 2.5mg every day while on cycle?
I’m looking to bulk up and add some definition later
I’m never going to touch ' winsteol ' or ' dianabol ' or anadrol thanks to some research ..
I’d like your advice please on cycling with testosterone and proscar please and what to expect
Thanks again PAUL................................................................................................................
Hey man, just got your message - for some reason it went into my spam box. What is your cycle?
There's not a lot of point doing anything below 500mg - if your using testosterone as a standalone. I'd recommend 250mg of test and 50 mg of Anavar for 6 weeks.
Superdrol seems to be friendly to my hair as I mention on my website - that compound is better for bulking than var is.
use 1.25mg of finasteride each day.
I was just reading through your site! Very cool info! I noticed you did not profile Turinabol? I know it has one of the lowest androgenic ratings so I'm curious as to your take?
Hey man, I gotta include that one on the site! I'm very prone to hair loss and Oral-Tbol was safe. Just make sure you are getting Tbol, its often faked as "Dbol,” which eats up hair.
Hi, I was wondering if youi know any products that have been clinically proven to work on frontal baldness. I've contacted propecia and rogaine only to find out they couldn't confirm (deny or confirm) the effectiveness for the hairline. Both my brother and... well pretty much everyone in my family is bald (my brother is completely bald and is only a year and a half older than i) and so far I'm the last one standing *knock on wood* I really just want to prevent it before the process starts
I was doing some research and Proscar claims to prevent baldness in the frontal area however i can't find enough research on it
any help would be greatly appreciated.
A: Hey bud, finasteride (propecia/proscar) and minxoidil will be effective on your hairline
and here an article i wrote
make sure you grab a high quality minoxidil the two I have on the website are really the two best in my experience.
I came across your website 'hairlossfromsteroids.com' .. its truly a great source of information, i have just had a FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) hair transplant and have been looking for the safest steroids to use to prevent anymore hairloss in the future, i have run a few cycles in the past mostly using test/dbol/deca (all of which i now know more than likely excelerated my hairloss) and it seems through your information ANAVAR is by far the safest to use with hairloss concerns, however i was wondering if you knew how good or bad TBOL is to hairloss ?? Ive read some reports that it is not too harmful but you are so far the one person i think is talking pure sense on this subject so i hope you dont mind me asking your opinion on it !!
Just to give you some more information i have been advised to take 0.5mg of DUTASTERIDE every 2nd day and also an everyday application of REGAINE extra strength (5% minoxidil) so any advise on future cycles that would help me make gains and still hold onto my now expensive hair would be so much appreciated :)
Hey man, Tbol definitely is a good choice - it won't eat your hair.. I've run it many times - just don't take wild doses of it. actually I have had a lot of guys ask me about Tbol, so I gotta put it up on the webpage.
I'd run 250-500mg of test, and 50mg of Tbol, with your dutasteride.
Superdrol is another AWESOME oral that honestly is as good as Dbol for me - but without the hair loss.
I'm not sure about the Regaine - I think Perfect Image's 15% Minox w/ 5% AA is the best thing going.
Look into HGH, it's expensive - but running HGH + anavar/tbol/superdrol is as good (and cleaner) as a heavy cycle of test, deca and dbol
Whatsup man. 29 years old, have ran multiple prohormones since about 25 and have never noticed any change with hairline/ thinning etc., until literally just the last 2-3 weeks while on current cycle of ultradrol and 11-sterone. Noticed a thinning and slightly recessing hairline primarily in frontal left/right temporal regions. This is definitely recent and has never been noticed prior. Significant shedding more so on this cycle than any I may have ever noticed in past. I quit cycling here in week 3-4 abruptly and will begin clomid/ arimidex for short pct run. My question is since I am catching this quickly is there anything to do in order to stop this now and maybe even begin to regrowth? I did purchase regene....forgot the name, basically nizoral shampoo and plan on buying perhaps minoxidil in the form of rogaine today to hopefully put an end to this. What else should I be doing? It isn't gone...just getting very thin. Hair feels thinner. Thanks a million, jason..
Hey there, it will regrow... with all the hair I've 'lost' through the years -- it would come back after the cycle... albeit thinner as the years went on. im not too familiar with ultradrol + 11-sterone. - they sound pretty androgenic though.
the thing about hair thinning -- you won't 'notice' a thin/bald area until 50% of the density has been lost. that's not to freak you out, but rather to recommended you grab finansteride asap if you think the situation isn't getting better.
Hey bro, awesome website, such a big help. im on my first steroid cycle of test e 500mg per week, i feel like i notice some shedding. i have finnasteride on hand but am not taking it, if i start it now will it immediately start inhibiting dht ?> also have you noticed diminished gains since dht has some muscle building effects:?> one more, whats your opinion of nioxin shampoo for dht removal from scalp?>
i got one of the shampoos you recommend, and the 15pct minoxidil 5pct azelic acid from amazon orderd them today
thanks man! yeah man, start up the finasteride - it will start reducing DHT right away - but it still may be a few weeks until the hair loss subsides. It will grow back, so long as you are using the fin + 15% minoxidil.
the diminshed muscle gains weren't significant. especially if you are on HGH. GH is your best friend to avoid hair loss, build muscle and not have to use a lot of androgens.
I just did a page on Nioxin, you'll be the first to see it!
^ in short, Nioxin is better for women. It doesn't inhibit DHT. It makes your hair 'thicker' (its really good for appearance). I use it, but I recommend one of the other shampoos (with ketoconozle) to prevent hair loss
Hi, Great website.
1) I have been experiencing more than normal hair loss in the last year or two – difficult to pinpoint the exact reason, but I have been also using low dosage of HGH (1.5 IU – 2.0 IU per day) for about 2 years (I’m 48). Although most literature says HGH may cause hair growth, I am wondering if you ever came across anything to the contrary? That it may cause hair loss?
2) From your recommendations of N2, I want to try and ask for your code. I not that the manufacturer website is currently sold out.
Hey man the discount code for the N2shampoo (on need2buildmuscle) is "BBE15"
I have more info about HGH and hair loss on the 'blog' part of my site. It can cause hair loss- but in your case it's 99% not
but in your case - HGH could cause 'shock' hair loss, but since you've been using it for 2 years or so... it's unlikely to cause progressive hair loss.
I like N2shampoo - its more of a 'hair growth' shampoo... if you can get one of the ketoconazole shampoos - those are a bit better for hair loss
Hey man I just came across your website a few days ago, A lot of great information on there!
I wanted to share a link to a forum(Datbtru) where some people are having luck using emu oil and coconut oil to protect the hairline and even grow hair in a few cases.
I have been reading about Need2's shampoo since it first came out but after reading your review i've decided to give it a try. I'm not balding, I have slightly high peeks, But my older brother(30) has pretty thin hair. I figure now is the time to start protecting my hair line since i'm only 23.
Anyways, Just wanted to share that link with you. Maybe you'll find some good stuff in their.
O btw, Have you tried anything products like Primordial Performance Toco-8 Vitamin E product? In theory I guess it's supposed to protect the hairline.
Hey thanks man... ill check it out! I used Toco-8 - didn't do anything - at best it makes your hair grow faster. Primordial Performance is still a good company though. Toco-8 is best for hair growth, not hair loss prevention.
Hey Brother, My name is Sampson and I recently started taking oral steroids (winstrol) about 4 weeks ago. I am prone to male patter baldness, and had been using propecia 1 mg with good results but, once I started using winstrol within 3 weeks I started noticing my bald spot getting bigger and my hair was thinning. When I wake up in the morning hair is all over my pillow and even if I touch my hair, hair gets on my hand. I had been taking propecia with the winstrol to block the DHT and it has done nothing for me, I have even used some hair loss shampoo. I have stopped taking winstrol a week ago, I was taking between 50-100mg per day. I also have oral T-bol, I heard that it is easier on the hair, but I haven't taken it yet. What is your opinion on T-bol and hair loss? and If I take T-bol with propecia do you think I will lose hair like I did with winstrol? Also do you have any suggestions on how to get my hair back? and If I should not be on a cycle while im trying to get my hair to grow back? Thank you for your time! I need your help, having a awesome body doesn't mean anything if I have no hair!
Hey man, propecia only works to lower DHT from testosterone -- not winstrol. Nothing blocks hair loss from winstrol. Get off winstrol and never use it again - it is the worst steroid for hair loss. Tbol is a way better choice. It order to regrow hair - stay off steroids for 2 months, keep using propecia, and pick up the the minoxidil/azelaic acid perfect image product I suggest on the website. here's my other recommendations if you use steroids again: http://www.hairlossfromsteroids.com/Specific-Steroids-and-Hair-Loss.html
Q: Hey man,
First of all, just wanted to say, thank's a lot for giving everyone this great information about hair loss prevention. I just purchased the Perfect Image 15% Minoxidil /5% Azelaic Acid combo and the Hair Regrowth shampoo. I've used Nizoral for years, along with 5 % kirkland Minoxidil ( little to no success ) Also, I off and on, use topical Spironolactone (s5 Cream )
Anyway, I just have a couple questions, if at all possible, any suggestions would be truly appreciated.
1: I've been juicing for roughly 4-5 years, I now stick to Anavar, or low dose Test, due to severe diffuse MPB all over the top. ( one 8-12 week cycle per year )
My question is this : I've been at the point of obsession/depression over this hair loss, reading on it every day, mine is very aggressive for the young age of 22. Its taken over my life pretty bad to where I have no libido or confidence (even with countless blood tests showing high testosterone levels, weather on, or off steroids )
On the flip side of things, It would be very assuring to know that getting on Finasteride could slow, or halt this process down. Do you think that taking Fin is going to make my libido issue worse than it already is ???
Are the internet based claims of side effects grossly over rated ?
I've competed before, I stay in great shape, even when I don't cycle, but man I tell you I'm at the point where all I do is look in the mirror. Its killing my sex drive and kills confidence and arousal.
Sorry for this long letter man, I'm just going buzzerk here, I've taken everything under the sun for hair loss prevention, but nothing really get's better, rather severely worse. I even keep cycles short and mild .
Yeah I know what you mean man... Ultimately a hair transplant FUT or FUE is the answer. Check out the 'toppik' product I have on the site... Dermmatch and Toppik are amazing. it does WONDERS.
I do believe finasteride's side effects are enormously overstated. Honestly, it should stop nearly all your hair loss - the effects seem to lessen over time (but we're talking 8-10years). In my non-medical option - you need to get on it. Libido isn't just testosterone and DHT - its all the hormones being in the correct proportions to each other. For the ED - get some cialis, it won't boost libido but you'll be able to perform.
in all seriousness I suggest jerking off everyday -- whatever it takes... this is likely a psychological thing and it can be fixed.
tbol, superdrol are also decent choices if you want to keep your hair.
Hi, I have a question about two pro hormones I am currently on. One is Androlean by Primordial Performance and the other is Havoc by RPN. I've heard that both are not know for hair loss but reading ur log about testosterone being very bad for male patter baldness, androlean has a low dose of injectable test enathane week so I'm not sure about continuing that product.?
The other product Havoc (Epistane), idk if it converts into dht and am on 20mg for the 1st week and 30 for the rest of the cycle. Taking alot of supports with it. Do u think ill have a good chance of keeping my hair after that cycle?
Today is the fifty day on havoc and my perfect image minoxidil 15% azelic acid 5% just came in so started using that today. Do u think the formula will prevent hair loss while on these compounds?
Anything else I can do to help my hair?
Thank you for all you're help. You're much appreciated!
Hey man -- I believe Androlean is DHEA-based (or is that Androhard)? DHEA converts to testosterone, DHT, estrogen, progesterone everything -- so potentially it could cause hair loss... (okay just looked it up - DHEA5&7) Yes, it could - but it's not going to be large amounts of DHT. Only if your super prone to hair loss will it be a problem.
Epistane didn't cause hair loss for me - but it has for some guys. I think it's a pretty safe hair loss stack at reasonable doses. Also remember - if its the first time you have used minoxidil - that can cause your hair to shed, but it comes back super fast. I think you'll be fine!
Hello,cool website!i am a beginner but i am concerned about hair loss as it runs in my family.I have decided that if i am going to take steroids it's going to be anavar while using rogaine.I want to take them because i am tired of bein really skinny.I am 24,5 11 and weigh 140 pounds.I want to know can i take anavar on its own without test or anything like that stuff that has the potential to convert to dht?I will talk to my doctor,can you recommend how to do a cycle of anavar please?
hey i'd start var at 50mg Every day.
run it for 6 weeks and do a proper post cycle therapy
you wont have hair loss issues with anavar.
I am currently on the pro hormone Havoc, I was wondering if the perfect image 15%minoxidil 5&azelic acid will help prevent any possible hair loss. Asking because the last pro hormone I was on (oral turinabol) I had quite some hair loss and didn't know what to do about it. Also will be using a ketoconazone shampoo, that Rene one I forgot the name. Thanks!
Yeah it should definitely help prevent hair loss -- if its your first time using minoxidil, you could experience some shedding because minoxidil speeds up the hair cycle, but all the hair will grow back
Q: Your website is awesome with great insight for people like me who are prone to MPB.
I have a quick question, how is H Drol for my thinning hair? I didn't quite see it on your website so just wanted
to know if I could get some insight from you.
Thanks in advance
A: Hdrol is one of the only ones I haven't personally used ... it seems like some please get mild-moderate hair loss from it. Superdrol, Tbol, Var - were all virtually 0 hair loss for me however.
Q: im 23. recently after being a complete assclown with juice i ran a low dose of the big bad ones
methyl oxy w.e it is
and anadrol 50mg..
jesus man i ra dbol for a week at 19 no hairloss,
i ran other shit for a week no hairloss then
i did my first cycle at 22,
1 month.. then pct.. all good bro all good, then i realise my hair thinned, my thoughts
wtf? i never noticed any shedding at all its like it all happened at once, 1 month after pct..
tell me ur experiences ur thoughts can i regrow? i had no hairline recede it just thinned a bit, cani thicken it back up?
i have minoxidil 5%
and nizorol in endless supply
should i hit these now?
what can i expect?
also a cycle in the next 6 months
test enthanate + finasteride? will i survive?
A: Hey man, let's see here... are you getting a lot of hair loss in the shower?
Don't worry, it will grow back - but it's really important that you give it the chance to grow back - meaning start inhibit DHT levels with finasteride and that minoxidil product w/ 5% azelaic acid that I recommend on the website and a ketoconazole shampoo - leave it on your head for 5 minutes. Nizoral will work, it may dry out your scalp though which is lousy for hair growth... that's why I recommend these shampoos instead: http://hairlossfromsteroids.com/Best-Hair-Loss-Shampoos.html
What did you take for your PCT recovery? Some of those newer PCT recovery supplements (particularly AI-based) can be androgenic.
don't stress out though... you can grow the hair back, just make sure you keep the follicles from thinning by reducing your DHT levels.
Tbol is a good choice, I get a lot of emails asking about it- I should really put it up on the website.
email me before your next cycle.
I'll probably just suggest
Superdrol 30-40mg (if bulking)
Anavar 40-80mg (if cutting or looking for lean mass with no fat)
lemme know if that answers your questions, or if you have more questions,
I came across your site while doing some research and read your article on hair transplant. Clearly, you are very informed on a topic which there is little info on the internet about. I am having my 4th and final hair transplant on Dec. 7th. I have been on TRT for about 12 years due to a pituitary condition. I receive Testapel implants every 10 weeks. I feel Doctors are too Conservative and have decided to add to their protocol buy adding .5 cc of Sustanon 275 which as you know comes to 137ml of added Test every week. The Testopel only delivers about 75-90 ml's per week. So this is not a super high dose. I'll likely increase it well after my hair transplant.
I've also added Proviron to the protocol because of how it increases Free Test. I know it is a Synthetic DHT. I am taking Minoxdil and Nizorol. My concern is not after the hair grows as it is DHT resistant but how the new follicle will do when it is in the gestation phase. I have gone off Proviron until surgery but would love to go back on it 3-4 weeks after.
What are your thoughts on my added Test and Proviron as it pertains to the upcoming hair transplant? Would you go off of Proviron as I plan or stick with it? I know your not a Doctor so I certainly wont hold you to it. You are significantly more informed then most so I would appreciate your incite.
A: Hey man - I have to be honest - I've never used proviron - simply because its methylated-DHT. So if you're looking to increase free test there are definitely other 'hair safe' ways to do so. I believe that Aromatase Inhibitors like formestame are excellent at controlling estrogen, increasing free test while not increasing your DHT - and at reasonable doses they won't mess with your lipid profile too much. At the same time it all depends on how sensitive you are to male pattern baldness and how many hairs you have on your hair (especially the transplanted zones) that are resistant to DHT. At the same time, I've heard that the DHT from Proviron is no where near as harsh as DHT from testosterone (I don't know that this is true - i won't be taking proviron any time soon). As far as the new follicles growing, proviron definitely won't hurt it -- it will probably help. Have you looked into HGH or some of the Aromatase Inhibitors (supplements)?
Even though they are 'legal' they still dramatically can increase free test
Q: First off, I know you get this a lot, but thanks for what you're doing man. It's really awesome and ballsy and it's wicked of you to do for us.
Had a wee question - I live in Edinburgh, Scotland and have been following your videos for a while and wanted to ask you what shampoo you would definitely recommend? I ask because it's quite tough to get all of this stuff over here and shipping is real expensive, so I want to make sure to get the best one if I'm going to be spending the equivalent of about $40 a bottle. I know you had the video of the PerfectImage shampoo and that seemed like a crackin one, but then the Regenepure video saying it was better than PerfectImage because of the Sodium Sulfate in it. So in your opinion, what do you think? I'm 25 and my hairline has been receding for about 5 years now, so I've accepted it's happening and now I'm starting to try to kick it's ass. I don't want to start having confidence issues and issues pulling girls because I didn't at least try to keep all of my hair haha. I'm using Minoxidil 5% because that's all i can get over here. I'm thinking about getting the PerfectImage 15% you had listed on your website, but it's about £30 quid all in, so I'm going to keep with this until it's all used up (next month probably).
I don't take steroids or anything, just a guy who has it in his family (my dad has 5 brothers and he's the only one with a head of hair), so I just want to know I'm doing what I can. And wanted to try everything else before the Propecia route because of the libido issues. No point in having hair if you can't get it up right?
Anyway, thanks a lot again mate. Appreciate you emailing me back.
A: Hey - thanks man! definitely go with Regenepure. There's a lot of reports on the Internet about how Propecia ruins people's lives. While this may be true (like other Rx Drugs) its only the case for 1% of the people who use it. I think it's super effective for the average guy. I think the 15% minoxidil is an upgrade - particularly because of the 5% azelaic acid in it. It's good stuff - much better than topical spirolactone. Give some consideration to Propecia/finasteride - if you see side effects - you can stop and things will fix themselves. Long term side effects are nearly always from people who experience immediate side effects and still remain on it for years.
I like your site and appreciate all the info you've put up on it. I
noticed you have not included Oral Turinabol to your specific
steroids list. From what I've read up on the net this seems to be a
hair friendly steroid. Have you heard otherwise??
I'm also wondering what your thoughts are about using under 20mgs
of dbol. Do you think a dose that low may accelarate mpb?
A: hey man - tbol is definitely a good choice. I've run low doses of dbol, 10-20mg and it definitely results in hair loss if you are very prone to male pattern baldness
Q: Hi your site is packed full of info. You really are offering a great service. I was wondering, if you could recommend one product (other than surgery) to prevent hairloss and/or restore hair, what would it be? anything from the comb to shampoo to the topical stuff. i have a receding hairline at 27 and am on a budget in school so i'm going to try to go with one product for now. Thanks
A: hey man - generic proscar 5mg finasteride would be the most effective. After that (if you aren't using proscar/propecia) regenepure shampoo/perfect image shampoo will be helpful because it combats DHT
