*Mods, can you please add the word "pictures" to this thread title, I don't know how to do it.
95% hair growth. Hair dryer then it used to be, I use jojoba oil instead of gel when styling to counter that.
Back on B5 for the past 2 weeks, no hair shedding at all.
4grams B5/day. 3grams cysteine. (i found cysteine vastly superior to methionine, methionine adds an extra step)
B complex, tablespoon brewer's yeast which contains trace amount of cysteine, methionine
In addition I only use the crude oil once a week a now since last week.
Will post pictures I took right now below.
Awesome thanks for the reply. How big of a difference between methionine and cysteine is there in terms of stopping your hairloss? I'm only asking because I already ordered the methionine. I'm not looking to take B5 anymore, I just want the hair loss it caused to stop. I took 5-7.5 grams for around 2.5 weeks and then stopped. What dose do you recommend for me? Thanks so much for the help
I would say cysteine is twice as effective as methionine. In addition you have to cycle methionine, while cysteine is recommended to be used every day by NAS (link below)
When I went from methionine to l-cysteine, I stayed at 1.5g. I weigh 150lbs so if you are closer to 200 you would bump it to 2g. The National Academy of Science says cysteine intake is based on protein intake, so if you eat a lot of meat or are taking whey protein to workout, I would consider bumping it another .5g.
Don't forget the crude oil. I fogot to mention I ordered it from baar.com. One bottle basically lasts forever.
I been taking b5 6g for 6 weeks now o haven't experience any hairloss that's it mean I'm safe?
No, many people take b5 for months before experiencing hair loss. It simply means you have a higher reserve of cysteine than someone else, once it is depleted you will experience hair loss. Buy some L-cysteine and take it in a 1:2 ratio. 3g L-cysteine: 6g B5.
Once you are 100% clear, you can lower your dose of both cysteine and b5, they complement each other.
