    I've been slowly losing my hair since my 20s now
    Adding in test did make the hair loss a bit faster but its not too bad yet and I have recently stopped worrying about it
    I have a derma roller, some mix and DHT blockers but I'm thinking of just stopping this "treatment" anyway
    If you're bald you're bald big deal

    I'm sure some more people with personal experience will reply to this for you but from my experience I can tell you that it completely depends on the person as everyone is different. I've had friends that lose hair from LOOKING at a bottle of test lol and others who haven't lost a single hair yet. It's genetic, on your mother's side...If your maternal grandfather had male pattern baldness then you'll havethe gene as well.

    Regardging your specific question, I'veheard of guys NOT losing hair for several cycles and then all of a sudden it starts, almost like they flipped a switch. Sometimes we have genes that aren't "activated" and a certain action will activate the gene and then the processes involved will begin. This can also be the case with MPB, sometimes it's slow and steady and one gradually loses hair over time, and sometimes it happens quickly (prob when the gene was meant to activated and yes steroids can def speed up that process).

    My opinion, not that it really matters lol, is that if someone's reason for taking steroids is purely to feel better about oneself then it's the wrong reason and too many side effects can come up that will make them feel much worse about themselves or their lives...Gear should be used to achieve certain performance or aesthetic goals...The reason for taking them HAS to outweigh all the short term and long term side effects IMHO or else it's not worth it.

    I lost no hair on my first cycle, ten years ago, age 34. My dad and mom's father had all their hair until about the age of 55 and then a little balding around the temples. I was on TRT for 1.5 years with no hair loss. Around that time, my doc changed my script and added a supplement. I began to lose hair around my temples. Do I care about hair, NO, I shave my head. But, GIRLS CARE, the vast majority of research shows the vast majority of women care about hair. They also care about the appearance of health and strength. So, I'm much more careful with what a doc tells me and I use a topical DHT blocker/hair grower (Latanaprost/Finasteride) with .5 mg finasteride daily.
    Everyone is different but, not that much. Some things are absolutes. If you live long enough, you will have less hair than when you did at a young age. Some people will lose it faster and even without AAS or stress. However, the vast majority of men will react the same given the same situation.
    One way to increase the likelihood of hairloss, do nothing to prevent it and make decisions which put you at risk to lose it. So, what are the responsible options:
    1) Make good decisions to minimize risks while exposing oneself to risk and be as strong and healthy as possible.
    2) Just say fuck it and be prepared to live with the outcome.
    3) Don't take any risks and don't enhance your opportunity for growth.

    No, would that have made it better? I'd be willing to try it. I know there are studies out there and I know the doc knows more than I did but what made me not want to go with their advice nor research anymore about it: I was fine before, after I was covered with body oil, had extra zits and balding. I gave them the whole information and the idiot on the phone says, "a lot of guys don't care to much about hair or zits." I broght this up to the doc and he never even made the gesture of saying, "I'm sorry you experienced that." I switched TRT providers in disgust.
    -I wont say the name of the company because I have no reason to know for sure that my experience is universal.

    I was cycling for almost 10 years before I noticed any hair loss. I'm thinking some of my hair loss is age appropriate (based on my family genetics") and some of it is from the cycles.

    I used to say, when I was younger "Hair loss? No biggie, I'm into getting down into single digit bodyfat". In my mid 50's I noticed hairloss and it was a HUGE deal. It's super easy to say hairloss is no big deal when you have hair. LOL

    Take Finasteride or Dutasteride, rub minoxidil into your hair and hope for the best.

    I started getting shedding my first cycle.. I have a full head of hair now but I also use a dht blocker. Fish oil, hgh, and clean eating will also help with keeping ur hair thick. If u notice ur shedding bad do something right away before u lose too much.
