Hello everyone. Just wanted to share this.
I've started using iodine, applied to the scalp twice a week for about a month now and have an incredible amount of peach fuzz growing. Also, a lot less hair loss. Also have darker them peach fuzz growing closest to my hairline.

I used iodine while I was derma rolling to sterilize my scalp. Then read prettyfly started using it too and noticed a difference so I thought maybe there was something to it. After seeing results I did some searching online. There might be something to this. I'll keep you'll posted. I'm going to order colorless iodine and start using daily once it arrives.

I've read there's colorless but I decided to stick with my Betadine 10% iodine. Purchased Nascent iodine as a dietary supplement. I'll start using that once it arrives.

I rolled in the past, just started again 2 weeks ago(once a week) after the growth I've had from the iodine alone.

may i ask, why you stopped rolling? were you not seeing any results?

I stopped rolling because it was time for a break according to the study I was following. Then when it was time to start again, I got lazy to be perfectly honest. I had results. Mostly peach fuzz, some terminal growth and my hair seemed darker.

As of today, almost 2 months in with Iodine and 2 weeks of rolling, I have more growth then when I rolled for 3 months. I think the iodine is strengthening all the peach fuzz growth I had from when I rolled. For the 1st time ever, I have real hope of regrowing my hairline.

A few other things I've changed, I've cut back on Rogaine use for the past 2 months or so. Cutting down to just 2 applications a week now. My hair feels and looks so much better better now. I've also amped up my morning running routine. Lastly, I hardly ever drink alcohol or smoke weed now. Maybe that's what's causing my hair growth, I don't know but it all started right after the iodine use.

So your regimen is rolling once a week, and applying topical iodine twice a day? am i correct?

also, it nice to hear some actual feedback from someone who rolls. you mentioned a lot of peach fuzz, some going terminal. In the published study from india i think all of us read, the hairs looked, and were reported to be terminal. do you think the study was misleading?

Comparing my results to the study, it was very misleading but nevertheless, I had growth. You can look at my progress in my thread I made a while back, have pictures in there too. I had a good amount of growth with a few terminal hairs, some darker then peach fuzz and lots of peach fuzz.

Right now I'm upping my iodine use to every other day. Exciting stuff is happening, thinking about applying everyday. I roll once a week. It's been 3 weeks since I started rolling again.

I had growth with the iodine alone so I'm wondering if rolling

thanks for the reply.

how long do these peach fuzz hairs last before falling out?

Also, you mentioned wanting to apply iodine EOD. What harm is there applying it every day? How many times have you been applying it per week in the past?
thanks

I started topical application twice a week. I'm now applying every other day. I've read a lot of contradicting reports on iodine. The FDA suggested amount is next to nothing but Japanese people have incredibly high amounts of iodine in their system because of their diets and they look young and usually have a full head of hair.
You have to do your own research and come to your own conclusion.
As for me, I'm going to take 1 drop of Nascent iodine in water every morning and continue with my topical application every other day.
If I have real growth down the line I'll post progress for all to see.
My peach fuzz stays a long time. The longer ones have been there for over a year.

Great to hear it. I have Iodine at home. I had even spoken to my wife if it would be a good idea to apply a few drops on my head.

How do you make this application? How many drops? Apply and leave for how long? Thank you.

Hi, I put a few drops of Betadine Solution 10% iodine on a cotton ball and rub all over my head. I put it on when I get home from work and leave it on overnight. Wash off in the morning. About 14 hours. Every other day. That's all.

Since my last post Ive had more growth. The darker then peach fuzz hairs are almost fully terminal. There's too many new hairs to count. Seems like the peach fuzz is turning darker by the day too. I'm very excited!

Yesterday I put 3 drops to test directly on the temples.

The interesting thing was that when I put that, I got yellow stain. Both hands as the head. I tried to wash my hands, but the stain no way to clean. After 30 minutes, the skin of the hands and the head completely absorbed stains, impressive.

I'll try to make this application with a cotton swab on the head, every other day. Thanks for the tip.

Interesting, there's a theory on how one can estimate if they're low on iodine. It basically involves painting a patch of iodine on the skin. If the iodine is absorbed within 4 hours(color fades) then that person is lacking iodine in their system.

Report back if you have any growth please. Saw my first signs of growth within 30 days. Thanks!

I never took Finastride. I did use minox for about 16 months but started cutting down about 3 months ago. Never really grew anything. 1st month of stopping minox only applied once a day, 2nd month only twice a week and I haven't used any minox for about 2-3 weeks now.

The only other things I can attribute the growth to are either my morning runs- Blood flow to the scalp. Or that I've cut drinking and smoking weed.

I've even stopped my vitamins and stuff I used to take. So it's either the iodine or what I mentioned above.

Just wanted to post some research I've been doing about all this. New hair growth continues with each passing day. Lots of Darker then peach fuzz growth. Peach fuzz growth at my peak(center of hairline) which didn't show any signs of life after 2 PRP treatments or over a year of Rogaine use.


What I've read says that iodine is essential for the body to be able to use the hormones the Thyroid gland produces. HGH(Human Growth Hormone) being one of them. Without Iodine, not only does the Thyroid gland not function properly but even if it does function properly, the body has a hard time using the hormones produced without adequate Iodine. The Liver, a healthy liver that is, converts HGH into IGF-1 growth factor. Basically what Follicept's entire hair growth formula is centered around.

So what I'm thinking is, My morning runs on an empty stomach are amping up my HGH production. (Fasted high entensity training has shown to boost HGH production 700%) The iodine is making the HGH produced by my Thyroid usable which my healthy Liver then transforms into IGF-1.

hey vic, thansk for sharing all this. have you taken any pictures of your "new" hair regrowth? I did read a guy from the thread "ultimate hairloss protocol" he himself took a bunch of supplements and also mentioned the iodine. I take kelp powder everyday it taste like SHIT but kelp contains alot of iodine. I will also be buying that iodine oil or whatever it is to apply on the skin like you do. morning runs? hell why not will start that too I could need it anyway. thanks once again vic have a good positive day!

Hi, I haven't taken any pic because the growth isn't cosmetically significant yet. I think I've reached my limit on how many pics I can upload tho. I'll have to figure out a way to post pics when I do see a cosmetic difference.

Ya I've read that and I only apply every other day. It's been a few months so all is good. The thing is, I've read Japanese people have Iodine levels the FDA says should kill someone but when you look at Japanese people, they all look crazy young and I don't think I've ever seen a bald one...

Not much difference to report. The darkest and longest new hair fell out recently. No terminal hair growth. There are more darker then peach fuzz hairs tho. Those seem to be filling in my temples with every passing week but nothing cosmetically significant.

Yeah but wouldnt you think japanese people have a separate gene pool from us which explains the MPB incidence a lot more then some random dietary thing? Maybe most japanese people have the ability to produce equol from soy and since they eat tons of soy that helps the few ones that are vulnerable to balding lower androgens and not go bald? There are a thousand better explanations then their iodine levels.
Anything is possible I guess but just seems towards the bottom of the list of possible explanations to me.

Could be exactly what you said. My comment is more about the FDA recommended Iodine levels and how wrong they are since Japanese people have Iodine levels the FDA says can kill you.
