    Anabolic steroids and hairloss
    Dunno who wrote this but its good basic info




    Anabolic steroid hairloss



    When it comes to hairloss not everybody is effected by it. Steroids will only speed up the process if you are genetically predispositiond to male pattern baldness. So if any family members are bald you have a good chance of loosing your hair to. You could always shave your head or buy a wig but we have some good information for you to try and help prevent hairloss, slow it down and in some cases even reverse it.

    Hairloss is NOT a side effect that will effect everybody, it is said that if you are genetically prone to male pattern baldness (mpb) then steroids can speed up this process.


    How do steroids effect the hair line?

    A substance called DHT (Dihydrotestosterone) binds to the receptors in the scalps hair follicles causing thinning of the hairline.

    What makes this DHT?

    The simple answer Testosterone gets converted into DHT (dihydrotestosterone) by an enzyme called 5 Alpha reductase (5AR).

    TESTOSTERONE ----(5AR Enzyme)---------> DHT


    What steroids effect the hairline then via this conversion?

    Not all steroids effect the hairline only the derivities of testosterone effect such as testosterone enth, cyp, prop, sustanon, dianabol etc..


    Do any other steroids effect the hairline?

    Yes. Steroids such as anadrol and winstrol are derivities of DHT meaning they do not have to convert via an enzyme to turn into DHT they can bind directly to the scalp.

    How do i stop this hairloss?

    You can help block the 5AR enzyme from converting test into DHT by using a medication called FINASTERIDE (proscar, propecia). Finasteride binds to the 5AR enzyme preventing conversion.

    Does DECA turn into DHT?

    Answer no it turns into DHN (dihydronandrolone.)

    Will FINASTERIDE work with winstrol and other DHT derivatives?

    No as there is no conversion via an enzyme. To help prevent hairloss DHT will need to be blocked at the scalp. NIZORAL shampoo is said to help with this although its sold as an anti dandruff shampoo

    Where can i get FINASTERIDE?

    Either from your doctor or from here

    How much FINASTERIDE do i need to take?

    For the normal person 1mg a day is enough to slow natural hairloss down, obviously the more testosterone you take the more DHT will be formed. Anything up to 500mg a week of test 2mg should be fine then add 1mg after for every 250mg of test.

    If you are worried at all about hairloss and have decided to use finasteride then i recommend start taking it 2 weeks minimum before cycle so it can kick in, and take it throughout your post cycle therapy (pct) regime.

    If using it to try and stop / reverse hairloss then you need to take this long term which can be expensive. Why not benifit from 10% off discounted finasteride.

    I have heard about regaine what is this?

    Regaine contains Minoxidil, the only over-the-counter treatment apparently clinically proven to help prevent further hereditary hair loss, showing success in 4 out of 5 men. For some people, using Regaine even reverses the process, resulting in regrowth.

    Basically its a lotion that you can apply to your scalp to help stimulate hair growth.

    Should i use regaine in my cycle?
    Regaine is not a medication so my appeal to some but in my opinion when using steroids the products that target DHT are the best regaine can be used aswell for extra hairloss prevention and for potential regrowth after the cycle has been completed.


    The hairloss prevention / regrowth cycle

    Nizoral shampoo - Use every other day
    Finasteride 1mg everyday (depending on test dose)
    Regaine used twice daily throughout the cycle and continue after

    the above is the ultimate cycle, if your worried about hairloss then dont use steroids the next best thing would be to use finasteride and nizoral throughout your cycle

    Anavar is really mild and shouldn't cause problems with hair loss. I find shedding to happen more so the longer i stay on. I limit my cycles to 8-10 weeks now, quick in and out.

    pretty good thread, getting down to the basics. A major point is if your worried about losing your hair DONT touch steroids.

    EQ and Anavar, and Primobolan and Anavar
    If I was to do a EQ and Anavar 12-14 week cycle and then a month or so later do a 12-14 week Primobolan and Anavar cycle and have no predisposition to Male Pattern Baldness, and am currently 26 with a very good hairline, would you say just the Nizoral shampoo with rogaine would be enough?

    If you are running any test at all and are concerned about your hairline,use finasteride while on cycle.I do and it keeps my hair from falling out even when I bumped test up to a gram.It actually thickened my hair out when i first started.You will need finasteride during your cycle to help prevent hair loss,I use 1mg ed during my cycles.If you do and you still notice thinning, bump up to 2mg.

    I started taking propecia (1mg ed) 4 weeks before the start of my test cycle. I planned on taking it all the way thru till my pct. Interestingly this article says to continue taking it thruout your pct. The reason I was going to stop once my pct starts is because I figured that thats when your estrogen levels are higher and why add a drug that just helps bolster your estrogen when you are trying to control it. But maybe since your taking anti-estrogen drugs during your pct it doesnt matter??

    I wouldn't take anywhere near that much finasteride.

    Too much will kill all your DHT. DHT is a by-product of testosterone, and if you kill it, you will have much less success on your cycle. I am very predisposed to MPB (I started balding at 18). I have cycled w/o noticeable hairloss. In fact, my hair is actually thicker than it was last year. Here is what I did while on cycle :

    Rogaine 2x a day
    Finasteride .5 mg/ED
    Nizoral 2% 1x/week
    Sprionolactone 1x/day

    I probably won't use Spironolactone again, because I didn't notice much from it. But the other 3 worked. I started it about 2 months before my cycle, and continued for 6 weeks after. Now (4 months post-cycle), I only use rogaine and Nizoral, and continue to see thicker hair. Hope this helps.

    Nutritional Supplements
    Nutritional supplements? I can do without them, so do I really need to take them? I have heard this argument more than a dozen times before. The problem with most people is that they base their health on how they feel. Just because you feel healthy and in perfect fit now, does not mean you do not need supplements. We mine through thousands of reports on websites, in medical journals, fitness magazines, television reports, bodybuilding blogs and forums, user feedback and many other mediums to bring you the most comprehensive facts about top nutritional formulas sold.

    Does regaine actually work?

    My hair has receding and it's slightly thinner than it has been on the top of the scalp, the sides are fine.

    I saw a 6 months supply of Regaine extra srength foam for 100 - I didn't know whether to give it a shot or just accept it?

    I plan on doing a lot more cycles and I just think is it really worth all the money on hair loss products?

    Don't get me wrong, I'd like to have my thick hair back, but I'd rather be a fucking moster as well so it's swings and roundabouts!

    Don't even worry about hair loss. Just shave it lads! Looks sicker than any gelled quaff anyway! You'll save a tonne of money and it's one less thing to worry about!

    I'm actually reviewing that exact shampoo on my website Hair Loss From Steroids. hairlossfromsteroids.com

    I consider N2Shampoo to be VERY GOOD, but comparing N2Shampoo (or any shampoo to finasteride) is apples : orange.

    DHT is created internally (whether by your balls or anabolic/androgenic steroids) and it needs to be eliminated internally as well. Ketoconazole, azelaic acid, spironolactone are all decent for topically inhibiting scalp DHT - but for the average guy sensitive to male pattern baldness - you NEED finasteride (or other 5-ar inhibitor, dutasteride).

    make sure you do your homework on which steroids are best to avoid hair loss. There's a list right here that I've complied from both experience and accounting for their androgenic (hair loss/BPH) potential: Specific Steroids and Hair Loss hairlossfromsteroids.com/Specific-Steroids-and-Hair-Loss.html

    Do NOT use Deca or NPP with finasteride. Note that finasteride will only help with DHT [from testosterone-ester steroids] that converts from testosterone to DHT via the 5-a reductase.
