Secondly, I wouldn’t be concerned whether or not you’re shedding. Some people shed a little bit, and some people don’t — but shedding is definitely NOT always a good sign (as you know). Some shedding is normal because of the nature of the massages. However, some people also shed because they create too much friction on the scalp skin, or they don’t allow for enough recovery time in between sessions. That’s not the good type of shed. So, don’t worry about not shedding 🙂 Regrowth is possible with or without the type of shedding you’re looking for.
Okay, so the most important thing concerning water retention is aromatization of testosterone into estrogen. The ratio of testosterone to estrogen is what determines how severe your chances are for developing serious estrogenic affects such as gyno. So what do you do if you are one of the unlucky few who are susceptible to gyno? What if you just want to use strong drugs but don't want the water? What if you are prone to "potato" head syndrome and seem to bloat up no matter what? Your answer lies in proper use and understanding of anti-estrogen and anti-aromatase drugs.
