    21 year old male. I've recently had a spell of hairloss on my right temple, and it's hard to determine exactly what triggered it. Could be either my exam stress this month, the stoppage of finasteride about 2/3 months ago, or the relapse that occurred last month which was prior to starting this reboot streak. Nevertheless I'm taking steps to regrow the lost and thinning hair back by continuing to apply minoxidil and hair oils every night, trying not to be stressed, getting good nights' sleep daily, staying healthy, going back to exercise after these exams, scalp massages, dermaroller once a week, taking finasteride again and sticking to NoFap (I read around that some NoFappers have regrown hair during their long streaks, could be explained by the fact that ejaculation causes a spike in DHT which circulates throughout the scalp). I've noticed this past week that whenever I try to massage the area of hairloss, there's some tingling sensation and sometimes feels like it's burning, especially if you tried to pull a thin hair follicle out (which seems rather easy compared to my left temple). Do any of you fapstronauts have some advice you could give me regarding hair growth?

  2. I've seen people boost hair growth using coconut oil.
    I personally prefer a clean shaved head. All men should have the pleasure of getting rid of all their hair atleast once in their life! :emoji_grin:

    Thanks for the input. I'll try out the coconut oil, but I think I won't go clean shaven just yet as the look doesn't suit me, not at least until I can grow a beard. Stay strong on your NoFap journey

    I know how you feel man, it's just not the same when you start to lose your thick head of hair. Onion juice to try would be a last resort for me a few months down the line if no improvement is made, simply because people have reported a strong smell that's hard to remove (even if you can put up with the smell itself) and that it's perishable I think, so you have to keep on juicing a fresh onion for one or two applications at a time.

    Be aware of your genetics first, your granpa from your mother side, your dad etc, could be natural, if not can be due to stress, vitamin deficiencies (recommend you doing a blood test) and rosemary essential oil is pretty good for boosting hair growth, but you have to find a way to apply it not directly to your scalp is not recommended, maybe mixing with coconut oil etc.

    Check castor oil (should be used at least 3 months) and zinc.
    Example of using:
    use castor oil once per 2-3 days on your hair for minimum 2-3 hours
    15 mg of zinc daily

    Gotta be careful castor oil has some other effects depending on the use and hair.

    I recommend you getting some recommendation from someone in the area, sometimes we can be doing worse without knowing

    I usually do not take recommendations, i study and then decide, so no problem. I am cuious to know about side effects from topical castor oil you are aware of.

    I use castor oil for few years. I mean not every day but it's periodical - like now, I use castor oil once per 3 days (on hair only) for last 3 weeks, I see no bad effects.
    And, tbh, I've never heard that someone could have any problems because of castor oil. I recommended it to a lot of people and nobody complained.
     
  16. Probably just gonna shave my head if I ever start balding tbh

    I’ve been trying things myself and I’m afraid nothing will come of it, but I’m not going to give up. My wife has been a huge help to me and has made suggestions and done research on things for me as well. She even found me this product on Amazon called Boldify, it helps tremendously until hopefully results start to show for regrowing.
     
  18. Massage your scalp twice a day. 5 minutes in the morning and 5 at night. Add olive oil to your finger tips a few times a month.
    Use nizoral 2-3 times a week.
    Do all this stuff for as long as possible. You shouldn't be using rogaine so young. You'll be right back to square one in your mid 30s if you go straight to rogain

    Did that during lockdown.

    I noticed that from the time (3 years back) I moved to another city, my hair density has drastically reduced.
    I started reading and found some solutions:

    1) apply onion juice on tuesday and thrusday . massage and leave for overnight
    2) apply coconut oil on sunday night and leave for overnight.
    (make sure to have a separate cloth under your head otherwise you'll ruin your bedsheet)
    3) zinc supplement every alternate day
    4) omega 3 supplement every alternate day

    I am seeing good results.
