I've been fooling around with DMSO and the Oz Brew for several years now. I've regrown my front hairline quite a bit and some on the crown as well.

One of the conclusions I now have come to believe is that DMSO, by itself, would probably regrow hair. How much the other things in the brew help is debatable...probably some, but I feel DMSO is the prime growth agent.

The whole DMSO thing got started when a poster on HairS*** related a story about his uncle. Uncle regrow his crown because he cleaned the grease off it with DMSO at the end of the day. He was a car mechanic.

Having said this, I feel that a MSM liposome cream would probably work almost as well, and be more acceptable to people who are nervous about DMSO (they are chemically very similar). And both contain sulphur, which I feel is an important contributer to hair growth.

NOW makes a liposome MSM cream for anyone interested. Trimedica has a cream as well. Also I can tell you MSM cream is really soothing on the scalp.

Anyway, I thought I'd throw this out for anyone looking for something new to consider.

Please don't ask me about the brew. Do a search. There's plenty on it.

MSM cream

I have kinda thought dmso had some hair growth effect. My brother has been off of propecia for over 1 year now and only uses OzBrew. he has lost literally nothing at all and regrown a bit. This is unconventional, but how else to explain it?

I truly believe that the 'startling' effect of Oz Brew is the extra minox absorption. Even Jambap who is a huge Oz Brew fan admitted the same thing.

IMO, Oz Brew = Loniten or close to it.

I´ve been putting pure (99%) DMSO on my temples once or twice a day for almost three weeks now.
Just to see what happens.....
And yes...it stings

Concur.

Rapid heartbeat, body hair growth etc. all points in this direction.

The fact that Dr. Lee denies that DMSO will accelerate the absortion of topical minoxidil is outright laughable IMO.



Just shows how much you can trust him as a salesperson.

Worked wonders for me. Too rapid a heartbeat though, made me wayyy nervous and overly tired. But the hair growth was amazing to say the least.

I am still getting rapid heartbeat with zix then minox 5 mins after, to a lesser degree though. I am hopeful.

The extra absorption may well be the reason it works........but this does not exsplain why the mechanic regrew his whole crown with just DMSO....

Well, it has been said that DMSO has SOD properties so maybe that's what did it, who knows. Keep in mind that this was a story told on the internet so its accountability is low. Also keep in mind that some folks have reported success on Fabao 101 or whatever the hell that crap is called.

Sorry to jack the thread, but where do you guys get your DMSO? Can it be bought locally (in drugstores), or must it be ordered online?

Thanks,
Luke

Well, how about the people who use DSMO with no minox? How have their results been?

DMSO can easily penetrate the scalp but MSM can't. Is this right? I read somewhere that MSM is water soluble. So if it is water soluble then surley it can pass to the follicles?


Would it be better to get the liposome cream or just put powder into water?

Thanks.

I find that an MSM + distilled water spray works well to thicken up the hair you have, but it hasn't regrown any for me, and I've been using it for years. The jar of MSM powder you can buy through vitacost or others works the best of the ones I've tried.

I was referring to MSM LOTION or CREAM that is liposome encapsulated to enable better penetration of the skin.

Powered MSM and distilled water isn't going to work as well.

The reason I brought all this up is because I don't believe anyone has tried this or straight DMSO. Both have been added to various things.

I though the liposome msm would be a good substitute for anyone nervous about using DMSO.

There is also an L-Arginine cream out which is basically an arousal cream for women. But maybe it could be mixed with the MSM cream, ala Oz Brew cream.

Just remember to apply to the SCALP!

Yep, I've tried every sort of MSM as an experiment. Applied MSM lotion to scalp with no results noted.

As if anyone can actually prove whether or not that story is true....personally I think that story is totally bogus.

I don't. I questioned him about it pretty thoroughtly. If I recall correctly, he was merely noting the observation. I don't thing he started using dmso.
