Hi Tracy, I didn't even notice your response earlier. I actually have not seen any difference in growing new hair but I do believe it's working because it seems to have taken care of my acne problem. I also feel like I'm losing less hair but maybe it has to do with the shedding cycle... I know that NW2 isn't that bad but I have a feeling i'll head straight into NW3 shortly after so if I can at least halt it at NW2 I will be very happy.
You're right though, Just because something is natural doesn't mean it's necessarily safe... Many natural herbs can be very dangerous for certain people. I'm not saying the above mentioned herbs are dangerous but I understand what you mean.
I guess I'll gain more info as I search throughout the forums. I was really just wondering if hairomega would at least work to maintain hair. This is really my first hair loss regimen so if I don't see any results in 9-12 months I'll know that hairomega wasn't effective. I really was considering starting propecia until I read all these horrible reviews on the product all over the internet. Then again I've also read a couple reviews that say minoxidil makes you lose your hairline completely! Thankfully I've read more positive reviews on minoxidil than bad ones. I will keep propecia in mind if my hairloss is worse in a year from now.
One website was saying that propecia lowers DHT in the blood stream so that's why it's more effective than other natural DHT blockers. saw palmetto has no effect on DHT levels in the bloodstream but I think a combination of herbs like pygeum, grape extract and the ones listed above make it more effective.
