Wanted to get some opinions on the efficacy and safety of a couple of compounds to prevent hair loss and respark growth. I'm 27 and have a little thinning on the front of the head and temple but zero loss on the back. Probably wouldn't have much of an issue over my lifetime but I figure why not be proactive here.
Spoke with a guy last night who is 34 with a full head of hair. He used a lot of shit in his 20's (may or may not have contributed, he didn't say) and said he lost a bit of hair from 21-27, at which point he started growing it back using a combination of rogaine to clear the scalp of DHT and dutas (generic of duasteride he got online he said) to spark new growth.
Apparently his hair has been growing back steadily ever since and says he has more hair than he did at 25 (he has a LOT of freakin' hair).
In any case my question to him (and to you guys) is whether the rogaine - and esp the dutas is safe. He praised both to no end and laughed when I mentioned the possible effects on libido and blood pressure - even from the rogaine. I tend to think the guy who was giving me said advice here is a little to carefree when it comes to casually consuming any type of compound if it makes him bigger, stronger, or prettier lol...
Anybody have any info here? I would just as well go mostly bald and do the jason statham thing but if I have a choice I figure, hell, why not try to keep it?
- I seem to remember TC posting an article here recently on this very topic but I vaguely remember the concoction he used had some downsides?
