Regarding the following article that you wrote (apparently- I couldn’t find the original anywhere) I’m assuming you still stand behind this. Why is this knowledge not a mainstay here on T-Nation? Practically everything I’ve researched says compounds like winny and mast will be harsher on the hairline- but this article indicates that Test is far more damaging.
I’ve never heard this and I would think that it would benefit a lot of people (or maybe just those who sell Stanazolol, lol) here as there seem to be a great many who are concerned with their hair.
"Wanted: Big Muscles, Lots of Hair
Q: I want to do a steroid cycle, but all the men in my family have gone bald and I think I’m losing some hair too. I’m thinking that winstrol is the steroid I should use, but not if it converts to dihydrotestosterone! Please help!
A: winstrol doesn’t convert to dihydrotestosterone, but regardless of what anyone else says, when it comes to synthetic steroids, converting to dihydrotestosterone has absolutely nothing to do with hair loss. All androgens at sufficient doses will speed male-pattern baldness if you have the genetics for it. It’s that simple, and there’s no exception.
Steroids fall into three categories here:
More potent in the scalp than in muscle â?? bad news.
Equally potent in the scalp as in muscle â?? less of a problem.
Less potent in the scalp than in muscle â?? good.
testosterone, if finasteride (Proscar or Propecia, 1 mg/day) isn’t used, falls into the first category. Most synthetics fall into the second category, as does the testosterone/finasteride stack. nandrolone falls into the third, desirable category with regard to hair loss.
So, if it’s important to you to delay your apparently inevitable hair loss as long as possible, the best choice of steroid is nandrolone, at moderate doses such as 200 mg. You’d get more results at 400 mg, but it would be somewhat harder on the hair than the lower dose. winstrol isn’t a terrible choice for the hair, but will speed hair loss, as will all of the synthetics or testosterone."
