That's very interesting. About 4/5 weeks ago I started using a product called Densiti. Even though I currently take Proscar and use a minoxidil product and have for many year's my hair loss had accelerated several months ago to the point of losing anywhere from 150 to 250 hairs per day. I heard about Densiti on this forum and decided to try it. Since they are just starting out and conducting studies I was not charged for the first two months supply. I was asked to fill out an interim assessment at 3 weeks and then will do another at 7 weeks. Along with taking two Densiti pills two times per day you're also required to eat one serving of Yoplait yogurt(I think it normalizes the intestinal flora) and consume two or three glasses of soy milk per day. I noticed no change for about 3 weeks and then about a week ago my hair loss was down by half. Within five days it was down to about a quarter of what is was at it's worst and that's about where I am today. The theory behind Densiti has to do with the soy and Densiti metabolizing equol and it's effect on circulating DHT. Apparantely equol binds to the DHT thus preventing it from binding to the hair follicle. I don't understand it all but I think that's the gist of it. It seems to have worked for me so far. So, maybe there is something to this.
I started the combination when I first read the Japanese study at inhuman experiment blog. I'm adding a little cayenne pepper to my soy latte or soy mocha in the morning and night. I beginning to see little hairs on my hair line; some of the hairs at first where just white, thin and curly. Then I just last week some tiny hairs, still thin, coming out darker and straighter. Also my hair seems to be growing faster. Now, on the outside of my bare lower legs I noticed red dots over the weekend. And I can't be certain of this at this point, but I believe I have a couple of hairs growing in those areas. Again I'm not certain because I rarely pay attention to the bald spots on my lower legs and I may not have noticed those hairs in the past. I have been on this isoflavone/capsaicin combo for little under a month.
btw - I started 1% Nizoral shampoo 2-3/wk about 2 months ago and because I am drinking more soy milk, I'm drinking less organic milk. So, I don't know how much I can attribute the soy/cayenne combo to this hair growth.
