Thought I would make a separate thread dedicated to this topic after seeing @littlemondri's post asking for DHT blockers. I think it will be a common concern for people thinking about jumping on the the Apple Juice. Although I do not suffer hair loss I did quite a bit of research on the topic just IN CASE for future knowledge should I ever choose to go down this path. Those who are genetically predisposed to MPB (Male Pattern Baldness) who are thinking about doing a cycle should read this to get an idea of the available options to help prevent accelerating their hair loss while on a cycle, I suggest further research into each of these options though as this is a rough outline. Nizoral 2% This should replace your exsisting shampoo while on a cycle, its used to eliminate dandruff and scalp inflammation and research has shown that Ketoconazole can prevent DHT in the scalp if used ED. I personally use this shampoo even now, it's got great hair benefits. I'd be using this ED on Cycle and EOD off cycle. You can purchase Nizoral 2% over the counter at most Chemists for around $18 for a 100ml bottle which generally lasts 1 -2 months. Saw Palmetto An herbal remedy for BPH Prostate Hypertrophy, but does show some anti-DHT properties and best dosed at 960mg ED year round. It can be purchased online or at your local pharmacist. Spirolactone 5% Topical based anti-DHT product that is highly regarded as the best. When used alone apply at night before bed. When used with Minoxidil use Spiro at night, and Minoxidil after shower in the morning. Minoxidil 5% Topical based anti-DHT product that is now sold OTC at most drug stores and supermarkets. This product does not grow hair, however will help prevent extra hair losses. Best used before bed if only topical used, or twice per day morning and before bed on dry hair. Finasteride The absolute best oral anti-androgen used to prevent and reverse hairloss. There are pills or liquid at 1mg and 5mg (Proscar), 1mg is sufficient on cycle when using high androgenic steroids, and 1mg EOD during off cycles is sufficient if even needed. This is mainly used during cycles, as topicals such as, Nizoral and Saw Palmetto should be enough during off cycles. Let me make this clear, yo do NOT need to use more than 1mg of Fin - you can even use 0.25mg and you'll have the same result as taking 5mg. A combination of the above could provide the best punch for keeping the hair you have, and possibly even growing some at the same time. Or if you're like me, it will give you peace of mind. What is the most Hair Safe Steroid I can use? Deca Durabolin The safety of this steroid, as far as hairloss is concerned, stems from the fact that 5-alpha-reductase enzyme, instead of converting it to a stronger androgen like DHT, converts it to a very mild androgen called DHN. Taken in dosages of up to 300-400 mg weekly it shouldn't produce any hairloss problems, this is due to the fact that, being a highly HPTA supressive androgen, 300-400 mg are no more androgenic than our endogenous testosterone (supressed while we are taking it) would be. One BIG word of caution: While you are taken Deca Durabolin never ever take 5AR blockers such as Proscar/Propecia, for it would block the conversion of nandrolone to DHN in tissues such as the scalp and the prostate, resulting in hairloss and BPH, which is what we are trying to avoid taking Deca. The Good and the BAD Testosterone cypionate, propionate, etc., androderm, sustanon 250 - All of these are different testosterone preparations, they all have the same properties as far as hairloss is concerned: they convert to DHT via 5-alpha-reductase enzyme. That's the main reason why testosterone is so androgenic. However, if one takes testosterone along with a 5AR blocker such as Proscar it's not nearly that harmful for your hair. So, if you are concerned about hairloss and are taking testosterone, always use it along with Proscar. Take into account that DHT is an anti-estrogen and blocking it while your body has supraphysiological levels of testosterone might lead to gynecomastia, so it's advisable to combine Proscar with Arimidex (an aromatase inhibitor). Anadrol\50 - If you value your hair, don't touch this one with a ten foot pole. Nothing seems to control its negative effects on hair. Not Proscar, Not Nizoral, nothing... Dianabol -Same as Anadrol\50. Primobolan - One of the less androgenic steroids. If you are concerned about hairloss this steroid is for you. It's much more anabolic than it is androgenic. Oxandrolone (Anavar) - It's the safest steroid for your hair along with Primobolan and Deca. Boldenone (Equipoise) - After the Primo, Anavar and Deca this is probably one of the safest for your hair. Although it undergoes 5-alpha-reduction, its affinity for this enzyme is minimal, so there is very little conversion. Moreover, its 5-alpha-reduced form is not as androgenic as DHT. DHEA - Does not negatively affect hair in men. May help prevent hair loss by offsetting the binding of DHT to follicles. The product is a Disaster for women with hair loss. DHEA causes hair loss in women much like DHT in Men. DHEA discriminates against women. Androstenedione - The worst of all prohormones in the market. It has a low conversion to testosterone, around 5%, which is damn too low. Worse yet is the fact that, before converting to testosterone, androstenedione directly interacts with aromatase and 5AR, thus converting to estrogen and DHT prior to conversion to target hormone.. You will be far better of using testosterone than this. 1-testosterone - It's very androgenic and very anabolic. Although it's a 5-alpha-reduced steroid it converts to DHT through an unknown pathway, so using Proscar along with it won't avoid DHT conversion. Its anabolic/androgenic ratio (~(1.5-2):1) is slightly higher than that of test (1:1). Be wary while using this product if you value your hair.
