    Thinning hair from cycling

    What are your favorite products with the least amount of side effects for thinning hair from steroid use ?

    Primo, deca , and anavar are pretty innocuous when it comes to hair loss...Any product that isn't androgenic should be pretty mild on hair loss.

    Thanks, sorry I should have been more clear. I meant products for hair.

    Haven't heard of this before but is this basically a pharma grade DHT blocker?

    yes, blocks 2 pathways of the conversion to DHT whereas finasteride (propecia) only blocks 1 pathway

    There is literally no point in running a DHT blocker with a cycle running full of DHT compounds ...

    That's like eating a big post work out meal after a intense work out and than throwing it up on purpose.

    If you are going to run cycles to build muscles , take the L if you lose hair .

    There is a pro and a con to everything but it literally defeats the purpose of taking DHT blockers when running DHT driven compounds .

    You're essentially shooting yourself in the foot

    If you're genetically disposed to male pattern baldness, I'm sorry to say that you'll lose hair no matter what you do. Finasteride and dutasteride (effective ingredient in Avodart) both help prevent Test conversion to DHT. Finasteride is an "older" drug and has been thoroughly studied. Finasteride has been approved by the FDA for hairloss while dutasteride have not. Finasteride was shown in lab test to prevent about 70% DHT conversion while dutasteride showed as much as 90%. Dutasteride also has shown more effective at growing hair over finasteride.

    Gives us hope, yes? Stick with "mild" cycles, finasteride or dutasteride pill everyday, minoxidil gel in the hair after every shower and you'll slow down the hairloss due to DHT. Prolactin based hairloss. The judge is still out how to protect the follicles from 19nor's.
