I can tell you after using Lipogaine and then Rogaine on my hair for about 8 months straight (starting from Feb- March thereabouts) it has made a difference it has filled in my vertex with and front of my scalp with thin vellus hairs that some were shedding and then darkening into full fledged . The literal near straight line from my sideburns and the sides of my hair started to fill with light tufts at the temples where hair was nonexistent. I was using this in concert with Regenepure and Nizoral twice a week and apple cider vinegar to clean away sebum blockage, oil plugging up the follicles and dead skin. Before restarting the process again
On July I started finasteride and saw palmetto and I felt the tingle in my testicles followed by a slight burning sensation and then it went away after two days. My semen became watery upon inspection but I never lost my erections though the morning ones were not as common.
I tapered off and went to more saw palmetto when my first batch of fin generics ran out (about 30 1mg pills). The morning erections came back stronger than ever and my sex drive was unaffected throughout the process. Now with my order of 60 pills about two months worth I have started up and there is little shed and the burning weird sensation is gone. I do feel the burning itchy scalp I had when I was twenty something coming back now as when my MPB symptoms first started. It would seem like the DHT is fighting tooth and nail but I am feeling stubble in what used to be light vellus hair near clean bald spots that I shaved down with the rest of my hair look uniform and completely bald. However it would seem that there are early dividends and I can see and feel the stubble or hair that was fairly light and diffuse in areas where hair loss was for more severe.
To give you some context here I am a Norwood 5 going to a 6 and with the progress I am seeing the fin and minoxidil and the keto and if they keep this up will have reversed this by next year to a based on the shadow of new hair coming in that I am seeing to a Norwood 3 and at best 2.5 which is fantastic. I will post pictures soon of my progress but I am fairly satisfied with the product.
