View Full Version : Is this guy for real? (Results seem too good to be true)
03-25-2013, 08:21 PM
He goes from Norwood 6- to Norwood 1 without a transplant....
Thanks beforehand for your feedback.

He seems sincere. He said Propecia, minoxidl, silica, biotin, aloe vera cream and scalpmed all worked for him, so I doubt he's trying to push ALL of that.
03-25-2013, 09:25 PM
He seems sincere to me. I am already on biotin and finasteride but i might try the scalp meds as well. :)
The video was worth watching.

There is no way this guy could have gained back all of that hair in 4 months, unless he is the luckiest responder in the world.
03-26-2013, 01:52 AM
I am not convinced. That is too much hair growth in just 4 months. While he does talk about few other products, he is mostly pushing ScalpMed.
03-26-2013, 05:39 AM
Yea, the timeline is a bit suspect to be honest. If he would have claimed that the end result was atleast a year later then it would've been more believable to me.
03-26-2013, 09:19 AM
You guys, his hair is like 1mm long. I think 4 months is reasonable to generate 1mm of growth from scratch. . Dont forget, he was using previous formulas to various degrees of success so he wasnt slick bald right when he tried the final batch.
I noticed he jumbled his timeline and some of it contradicted each other but in the end I do believe he had some growth like that from the fin and rogaine at least. :)
On the other hand................
You guys could be right. I am going to do some research on this 'scalp meds' and see if its snake oil.
This seems too good to be true :( . Still though, I think it's well worth a shot copying this formula and seeing if it yields results. Also, fair play to the bloke for going from a NW6 to a NW1!

...but i might try the scalp meds as well. :)
Scalpmed is just over priced generic Minoxidil.
Yea, the timeline is a bit suspect to be honest.
I agree. 18 months, maybe. Four months? No way. I'm not buying into that.
03-26-2013, 05:05 PM
I've seen guys on *** get really good results from the "big 3" in 4 months in the success stories section. But they're very few guys, it's rare and the same threads just keep getting bumped for years.
03-26-2013, 05:10 PM
So in other words tracy is right. This is just minox , propecia and nizoral repackaged?

I'll save you some time.
The only component in their blend that is FDA approved is Minoxidil. Anything and everything else they include in the package is questionable at best.
The tip off is in the "testimonials". One person claims "in two months I got my hair back". This impossible because human hair cycles are just not that fast.
03-27-2013, 12:06 AM
i don't buy it either, but since this already contains minox, so i think trying it out for couple of months instead of the original minox will not hurt.
03-27-2013, 01:20 AM
We are talking NW7 to NW1 ... 4 months? I'm an optimistic guy but i think he's either selling something or twisting some words.
SO what he comes off as "sincere" ever heard of the art of social engineering or plain old scamming. Any good scam artist looks legit, that's why he's an artist lol.
Could be true but he never showed that MIDDLE stage in the picks. He want from blad to GREAT hair ...
I am Sam.

I apologize, I saw his pics on facebook. I'm impressed and a little confused to be honest, I will start aloe vera ... hmmptff
25 going on 65

The old saying about "if it seems to good to be true" applies 3x to hair loss treatments
03-27-2013, 10:27 AM
So what do you guys think, he got a hair transplant, a wig, has some new state of the art hair concealer that looks like real hair?
Not saying it's fake or real, just that he seems sincere and is mentioning too many treatments to be pushing one thing. If he did not get these results with the treatments he mentioned, just want to know how you guys think he got those results?
03-27-2013, 10:30 AM
I mean if he mentioned TRX2, I would have paused the video right there and close Youtube.
03-27-2013, 11:15 AM
Really hard to say, but the before pics weren't that convincing, his head was wet shaved down to the scalp so who knows how much hair he had before.
Then there's the 'above' shots, that could be another person.
Calling BS on this one.
03-27-2013, 12:48 PM
Four months doesn't seem long enough. If it was a year or so on the Big 3 it could be possible if he's a good responder. If he's bsing, what's the point of making the video? He does mention using three different "Scalpmed" products..
03-28-2013, 08:53 AM
Remembering the video, I recall, he had been on generic finasteride for quite sometime before this, alongside trying different products...Therefore, I think it would be safe to assume his "actual" timeline is way more than 4 months.
I'm starting to reconsider my stance, and will say that perhaps, this really is possible.
03-28-2013, 11:15 AM
It's impossibru. I hate to be a doubter by default, but I find it hard to believe this company makes a handful of miracle products and we don't all know about it. Pretty sure the dudes in the Experimental section would be all over it otherwise. I could be wrong, it's just way, way, way too out there.
"If he's bsing, what's the point of making the video?" He has to have some incentive to make this video. There just isn't any other way around it.

I really don't think those type of results are possible in such a short time frame. I wouldn't rule out the possibility that you could achieve such regrowth without a transplant, but it seems unlikely. You would probably need to be on dut, spiro, and a topical like RU to even think about getting that kind of regrowth and it may take years. I remember reading about a 70 year old who was bald for decades but began taking spiro for heart problems or something. It took 5 years, but even his follicles started to regenerate and he experienced regrowth.

You give me hope man, I'm still just 32 :)!
You are probably referring to this, not sure if its authentic though.

If he were really a man of the people, he would have recommended generic minoxidil (not branded). Plus he did all this research and planning and still some of his before pics are carelessly put together or cut-outs of larger pics (trying too hard to look legit, I think).
And, that feeble ref to donation for charity towards the end, it is a dodge to alleviate concerns of sceptics.
well at hairsite they seem to think kevin is genuine guy and to be honest looking at the success rate of before and after scalp med must be better then most hair loss products as the feedback seems too good to be true but they cannot all be shills for the company surely?
i did try scalpmed two years ago but only had two months supply i dropped using it because it was greasy like normal rogaine but im willing to try it again if i can get some at a good price as im in uk and its only one site selling it.
Is it the nutrisol topical that goes with the minox thats working in combo i notice he is taking silica,biotin, and also the scalp med oral capsules as well.:eek:
