Pig oil is basically pig fat? interesting.. especially since how emu oil is another fat based oil. I'd be willing to give this a go on my temples.. not sure where to get it though.

Any supermarket will carry it. Make sure it's non-hydrogenated.

I'm a big fan of lard, however this study could not be found on the National Institutes of Health Archive (that really doesn't mean anything...just saying), but more importantly, these rats were shaved (they were not balding).

Still, certainly regrew the hair much faster than the control group and the minoxidil group.

The nice thing about Lard is that it doesn't have to be grass-fed, because the EFA ratio is pretty decent regardless.

Saturated fat
38–43%:
Palmitic acid: 25–28%
Stearic acid: 12–14%
Myristic acid: 1%
Unsaturated fats 56–62%
Monounsaturated fats 47–50%:
Oleic acid: 44–47%
Palmitoleic acid: 3%
Polyunsaturated fats Linoleic acid: 6–10%

Don't cook it!

Lard Fatty Acid Profile

I found this analysis done by "Research Diets" and it says that lard is around 28% PUFA.

I found this by reading over the thread on hlt talking about adipose tissue talking to stem cells at the follicle and the new breakthrough where they injected fat from mice bellies onto their scalp and caused formation of new follicles etc I'm wandering here if somehow the topical lard is talking to the dormant follicle stem cells in the same fashion?

Or does this pig fat maybe naturally contain adipose stem cells?

FWIW I've heard bear fat is good for hair loss.

I've never heard of pig oil in a bottle at grocery stores. Does it really come like that? In a bottle? Or do you have to render the oil from bacon fat. Is lard mostly pig fat? Or is there other ingredients in it as well.

I've also heard about that for hair loss. I'm using emu oil.

Here's what appears to be a decent non-GMO on-line source from Christiansen's Family Farm.

I'm fine with my Emu Oil besides this was tested on shaved rats, not rats losing hair

Should minox even cause accelerated hair growth in normal individuals?   Forgive my ignorance if this is a dumb question.  I ask because if minox does nothing for individuals with no hairloss this is a moot point.

Also, wonder why they didn't do this study on people with AA? 

But whatever, it's great to have a good source of lard.  I've been wanting some lately but didn't want to buy the crap at the grocery store, for reasons that CS mentioned.  Even if it doesn't work on our heads it's still deeply yummy when used as food. Thanks for that link, 4039!

That argument works for lots of stuff but not for this.  Surely the cost for a study on balding people can be no higher than doing it on people with normal hair.  I mean, why would it be?  Us hair-loss types are much more anxious to slather hope (in whatever form) on our scalps than you average person.

They did it on rats; you don't have to pay them to keep checking in

OMG.  D'oh.  Mea culpa.  I WAS NOT PAYING ATTENTION.  

This is why posting furtively at work when you should be doing other things is not a good idea.  Neutral

Sorry, Moe!

I wonder why they would even do a study on pig oil. It's not like you can patent bacon fat drippings.

Alright, time for somebody to take one for the team; shave your head, and use pig oil on one third, minox on another and nothing on the last haha

saturated topical fats are good

but coconut oil would be much easier to acquire and work better

basically avoid topical unsaturated fats
