Why is it so hard for you to grasp that transplanted hairs do not go bald in bald skin? If the skin had anything to do with baldness, there would be no hair transplants.
DP is not part of the skin, its part of the hair follicle. Balding does not arise due to anything happening in the skin, balding arises as a result of androgens causing the disintegration within the hair follicle.

Quote the paper.
Why would I be rubbing lithium into my head when I've already stated my belief that chasing down chemicals to mimic complex biochemistry in the body is a hopeless endevour. You should be scraping your head and rubbing in lithium since you believe in it.
BTW some guys here have tried dermabrasion + lithium glu. and it hasn't done jack.

Follica is not the bible on anything. What they have shown is ZERO so far. Lets see some results from them before you quote their patent as if it means anything.

The only thing that has been discarded is your ignorance on the subject.
