Prior to re-starting treatment of my thinning Hair in late Sept 2006, I had given up all forms of efforts to stop hair loss. In fact, I was buzz-cutting to minimize the prominent thinning spot on top of my head. Luckily, mainstream media is kinder to the shaved-look, nowadays, and many times, it's even fashionable. Thank you Michael Jordan! Thank you Vin Diesel! Thank you Jason Statham!
But why did I re-start my bout with MPB (male pattern baldness)? Simple, I didn't like it on me. I feel much better even if I had just a thin layer of hair on my head. I still get the buzz cut, but it will be 2, maybe 3, in clipper talks, instead of 1 or completely shaved. Lucky for me, I met Stephanie Suthers, owner/founder of Hairobics All Natural, who gave me some tips on how to use her line of products to grow my hair.
Roughly 4-5 months later, here are my results:
This is me late September 2006, around the time when I began using Hairobis All Natural. I was also inspired to document my progress and create my website/blog notreadyforhairloss.com.
Conclusion to date -- Still balding, duh! BUT, I feel, and, from the pics, see some of my thinning hair thicken. I do not think that I regrew hair, nothing out there can really do that. But some of the folicles that were dying, have been nourished so that it began growing hair once more. In between the longer hair strands, I feel some fuzzy growth of hair that I hope will grow to be normal in a few months.I also believe that my results are inline with the results from Dateline NBC video where the effects of 5 hair loss treatments -- Rogaine, Propecia, Viviscal, hair transplant, HairMax Laser Comb -- were studied over 1 year on 5 men.

From what I've seen, the 6-month mark for these guys were not all that great either. But over a year, the results were remarkable. I'm hoping for the same results one year later with Hairobics.
