Experiences with Hair Loss

I’m interested in hearing peoples stories with steroid side effects, preferably hair loss. If you don’t think its too personal you can put the cycle you were on and the side effects that occured.

My experience was zero hair loss as a dosage of about 600mgs a week test and 40mgs a week dianabol.

I think I lost some hair, but I’m losing mine anyway. Frankly, it’s too hard to tell, as my hair on top is relatively thin. I have not seen any on my pillow, or in the shower, nothing to that extreme. Mine was a straight 400mg/wk of test-e.

Note that the use of 5-alpha reductase inhibitors [which reduce DHT] can reduce or delay hair loss. There can be some serious effects of reduced DHT levels for some with long term damage to hormone balance and libido. There are risks.

I use a small amount of propecia on cycle (and only on cycle), and use Nioxin shampoo (all the time). So far, no hair loss, and I’m prone to MPB.

I use compounds that are bad for the hair like Adrol and Tren for very short periods of time only.

No hair loss for me so far. I have done 2 cycles,

  1. 300mg test pp EOD
    150mg npp EOD
    100mg Anadrol ED
    50mg Winstrol ED

  2. 150mg npp EOD
    100mg Anadrol ED
    50mg Winstrol ED

No propecia etc. I have no signs of MPB naturally though.

I am however starting a test + dbol cycle soon so we’ll see if my luck continues…

No cycle as of yet. But I had a run in with my clippers last week. So all my hair is really really short or gone. Maybe that doesn’t count but I sure like the new haircut. Just get up and go. Hair is over rated anyways.

Anytime I Cycle I use 1mg of Proscar(it’s cheaper to buy Proscar 5mg’s and cut it into four pieces). I am 45 years old and had already started to lose my hairline, yet I want to keep what I have.
