DHT crystals



At the aforementioned journal post that introduced me to MedHelp, there is a URL for a Thailand balding treatment.  I looked at the site out of curiosity, and what I found was this:

"Q:   A lot of hard granules come out when I do treatment. They are like small grains of sand. Is this normal?
A:   The hard, sand like granules are DHT crystals. With many balding persons there are waxy granules and hard granules under the scalp. The hard granules vary in size and colour. They can be as large as 1mm wide (see image, click to enlarge) and vary in colour from clear to brown to black. Many balding persons have literally thousands of these hard granules under the scalp! The hard granules in the image were collected from one client in just two treatment sessions"

....and they even have a picture of the hard granules!

As Alice would say, "Curiouser and Curiouser!"

Great!  Now I am afriad I am going BALD!!!!

This website is cool!  I am glad to have found it and looking fwd to enjoying it.  The original "sandy scalp" post that brought me here via a google search can be found in this journal: http://www.medhelp.org/user_journals/show/12858/scalp-condition

Take a look, and help if you can.
