MSM killed Kennedy.
I ditched all that jazz due to sudden irritation and obvious thinning all over as a result. It's hard to gauge whether it helped temples or not at this point, so I will keep it around if it actually was working there.

I've been applying msm topically for about 2 months...never had any inflammation or shedding, haven't noticed any regowth either. But it does seem to act as a good thickener. I'm putting some on now as I type...

This is bad. It means you're a hot head.

Sup Rammer, I mixed some MSM with water once & it killed my hair on the spot I put it. It stung some but not long. Thing was though my hair in that spot shed like crazy in a couple days & I stopped using it right then. Good thing I just tested it on in one small area. Hair got better again in a few weeks but damn.

One thing, I noticed my MSM wasn't just MSM, it had Glucosomine(sp?) & maybe other things. If others had good results with MSM, then maybe you have to make sure you have some kind of pure MSM. Mine was also in powder form & it came in little pills.

I don't know what I was thinking with that.

If it's burning you & you're shedding, I'd say stop it.

If you still have interest in using it, try finding out what brand these guys use that have good results & how they make it.

That's what I'd do

Also, I just looked at your sig & maybe the MSM is mixing with something else & that's causing the burn/sting. I think the reason mine was stinging was other stuff was in it.

I had thought of trying it again, but I've found stuff that really has been working for me now, so I haven't bothered with MSM again.

hey

i dont think its interefering, i apply it first thing after a shower and it stings

the only possible thing is that the retin A is interefering, even after i shampoo it off

is the burning sensation necessarily a bad thing?

can spiro really make your hair much worse soi fast?

RAmmer, i've been on spiro/dermovan for a month and it's helped but i've still been losing ground.


sometimes i blame it on the DERMOVAN but still havent picked up everclear. i hope everclear is better and you know, without all the junk dermovan has (mineral oil, sorta st uff.)



but for real man, MSM S UCKS TOPICALLY. get off it now, it dfinitely thinned out my hair in the front. and i was a pplying it hardcore for a month or so because it initially thickens up.

you have to elminiate one ; elminate the msm.
