I have been doing the SE for many months and have hair regrowth on both sides of the temple. The only thing that keeps on bothering me is why the heck this process takes such lot of time.
I think some of this is because I have been masturbating on and off for this past year. Also I use too many hair styling lotions to cover up my bald patch. I have stopped porn and masturbation for a while now and also I have shaved my head completely this month. My hair isn't falling heavily like it used to and about 20 vellus hairs have been matured into a complete terminal hairs on my temple and hundreds of them keep getting thickened up.
You know Tom, I am not imagining things! Maybe it’s only the SE that keeps my hair from getting wiped out completely. This means that vascularization indeed plays an important part in this whole baldness thing.
What I want to ask you - is there any compound or substance that can quicken the hair growth process? I want to know if by any means you know something that can quicken the growth but doesn't make our body become too dependent on that like propecia or minox that in long term causes much further hair loss once stopped?
I have read many things, some BS, some honest but not too convincing, but after all I've seen one thing which's recommended by many people and I see the logic in that. It's the MSM.
MSM (methylsulfonilmethane) seems to grow hair thicker and longer in individuals but maybe not helping so much in a bald patch. In my mind there seems to be MSM with specific enhancer (DMSO or MAP) that can be applied topically on scalp that can act as the penetration agent. What do you think about this? Is this safe?
Here is one of reviews about the effectiveness of MSM. You know it's somehow even better than minoxidil in some cases and can be an intriguing alternative.
Even when taking orally, MSM combined with vitamin C based on many testimonials from people in internet will really thicken up your hair and nails, and it seems to be a lot safer to many people and the more reasonable option that I can take. Up to date other than allergy, dizziness and nausea for some people MSM isn't causing any side effects when taken orally even it improves the our quality of life. But do you think that taking MSM orally will not bring any side effects once it's stopped ? Or should I stick with SE alone ?
And the very last thing that I want to ask your opinion is about hypertrophy. Actually I'm doing SE for about 20 minutes (oftentimes more) for each session every 8 hours a day and I've seen my frontalis muscle has become quite bulky these past months, actually it has been started since March and it gives me a rather intimidating looks (not too good for charming young girls). Do you have any opinion regarding this? How can we keep on doing SE everyday without having to worry about hypertrophy expanding all across our temple? Is there any specific reps/sets/time that you recommend me to do to avoid this side effect?
