Growing my Hair Experiment with Beta Sitosterol – Update 2
Just a quick update about my hair growing adventures with beta sitosterol. I’ve been on the supplement for nearly a month and a half. I think, but have no clear “data”, that my hair shedding has definately decreased. But the most interesting thing is my scalp is itching — no, I haven’t got headlice — this is exactly what I’ve been waiting for. As WidowsPeak recently told me…
The first thing that I noticed when I first started takinig beta-sis was that my scalp got oilier within the 1st month. This dissipated and then I noticed an itching in the areas where I got regrowth, so if you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, it’s a good sign.
Apparently the itching is caused by tiny baby hairs called velous hairs starting to grow, with follicles that were once dieing off slowly coming back to life. To me this is very good news, especially as the itching is mainly on my baldy bits, which to me is another indication that the beta sitosterol is having some effect. Eventually the velous hairs will be replaced with thicker normal hair, that’s the theory at least. My hair loss is mainly on the top of my head, my hair line is is intact so it’s hard to visibly track the progress. In 4 to 6 months time my before and after photos will be more revealing.
One last thing, with a bit of luck there’s interview with WidowsPeak coming up soon on this site, he’s revealed some interesting info about his dosage with Beta Sitosterol and he’s got some new updated photos showing continued hair regrowth, so keep ’em peeled.
