Have been involved with life extension since 1983. Born in 1952 and am now 59. Seldom considered to be above 50 by others and pegged around 45-47 but the family has great genes. May have nothing to to with the supplements I have been taking for years however there has been one very clear recent change that I can report with all surety...that the hair on top of my head, after thinning for many years due to what has been called male pattern baldness is regrowing.

I changed my regimen to Life Extensions Caloric Restriction Mimetic Formula, added PQQ a few months ago and noticed, quite by accident, hair regrowth. I did however also stop washing my hair everyday and instead brushed my hair two-hundred strokes per day. I now wash it once to twice a week only.

It definitely has thickened. I wish I had measured carefully the progress but it went from: hey, what is going on to yeah it really looks like it is growing to damn it IS regrowing. There is no question. My hair on top of my head definitely has become thicker with more of it. I am completely shocked.

That is interesting.

My father told me that every older man who had a thick head of hair, when asked by him how they got it, replied that they washed their hair every day.

I'm the same age, and I've noticed this too. I wouldn't call it a cure, but it is definitely an improvement.

Very interesting. Now I wonder how much is due to the brushing (increased circulation) and the supplements. I wonder if this has something to do with the formula enhancing youthful gene expression, cellular regeneration and perhaps shorting the hair's resting phase and extending the growth phase?  Any comments?

Daily washing has been shown to keep DHT from accumulating for those men who are prone to DHT hair loss.

Finally have time to reply!

Perhaps the brushing is increasing circulation and keeping the pores from clogging...due to residue or sebum left on scalp from shampooing?

The brushing (boar bristle) combined with stopping shampooing so often and good nutrients seems to have helped me.

Hi Rossicloud
That is interesting.
Can you tell us how long you were using the
Life Extensions Caloric Restriction Mimetic Formula and PQQ when you started seeing hair regrowth?
Also, what other supplements are taking?
What type of diet?
Looking forward to your response.
