It took me several years, but somehow by trial and error, I managed to regrow my thinning, balding, natural hair (all mine, no extensions or hairpiece)through a combination of Propecia, Rogaine, a laser brush,Nioxin shampoo & hair coloring which I'm convinced thickens you hair. I have pictures of myself, before and after, on my website, (promotional link removed). These pictures and my site are genuine- if they weren't I wouldn't have used cheap Polaroid & Cell Phone pictures of myself. The site is 100% genuine & free & I have no financial interest in anything, other then it is supported by Google Adsense Adds & Non-Hair related Hair product advertising. Feel free to check out my site as it might be helpful to you and remember, "A Picture is worth a thousand words".

Well if you can't tell what's hair and where there isn't hair, you aren't playing with a full deck! The point is to show before and after pictures of hair growth. If they were professionally shot then you would say they were phoney and staged. No wonder you have hair problems!

HiFi,

You are welcome to contribute anything you would like to our community but due to your websites promotional nature, I've removed the link from this post. Please see our terms of service.

If you truly have an interest in sharing your experience and photos with us, feel free to use our resources and create a hair loss weblog or create a photo album in the "hair loss drugs" section since this seems to be how you restored your hair.

I also will not tolerate your insults to our fellow forum members who gave you honest feedback despite the fact that you were promoting your website here. Chucky is correct that the photos displayed on your page were blurry and of poor quality.

Follow our rules, or you won't last long.

Best wishes,

Bill

I'm not saying the photo wasn't wonderful but who cares as anyone can tell that the before shows little hair and the after shows a lot more hair. I wasn't insulting the guy I was being honest. I thought the point of this forum is to help people with hair problems. My hair routine, whether you agree with it or not, clearly shows it is effective for me and anyone can clearly tell that in the pictures. Instead the only important thing this guy could say is the picture is blurry? Well what difference does that make or should that make to him if he wants to grow back hair? You can clearly tell that I've grown back hair in the "blurry" photos. If you don't comprehend that, fine I will probably discontinue being on this site. Yes, I'm sure every good deed must be punished.

Oh, so you want to be a martyr?

Clearly you have a lot to learn if you think photography doesn't matter in hair restoration pictures.

Might as well believe every picture is legitimate as advertised on TV informercials too!

As I've said, you are welcome to use our resources to share your experience and photos. Whether you choose to do this or not is up to you.

I'll probably continue on this site though I totally disagree what you're saying in regards to my photographs. If the guy questioned the effectiveness of what I use, I'd have no problem with that. What I don't understand is anyone can clearly see my hair in those photos and you think I'd use trick photography to have lousy photos shot of myself? My analogy is someone with a bathing suit on showing that they are missing a leg and someone saying the picture is blurry. So what if the obvious is right in front of you. Anyway, I'm not the one with the hair problems now, this person is, not that my hair is the way it was 15 years ago either. PS In regards to hair restoration photos, I'd be more leery of the ones that look professionally shot, etc., then the ones that are taken by everyday people using cheap cameras. To each their own.

HiFi,

Your photo's do show an improvement in your hair, however, I think what the guys are saying is that its difficult to assess the full extent of the improvement without additional pics. It would be better if you included before and after of a top down view along with the front profile.

Anyways congrats on your improvement. Many people seem to get results from the big 3 hair loss medications (propecia, minox & nizoral). Unfortunately im not one of them!!

My routine is honestly not that special & what I personally recommend if you're not getting the results is try the guy's Amazing Laser Brush that he sells on Ebay for around $129 which was one of the things I listed on my site- I don't remember if he has a moneyback guarantee, try Nioxin shampoo, try extra strength Rogaine nonfoam & out of curiosity don't use generic minoxidal. If after a few months you are getting some growth, get your hair colored as well. If none of that works, before I retired and had more income, I used Hair Club for Men for 10 years and their pieces looked great, were easy to manage and no one could tell it was a piece unless they tried to run their finger through it. The downside is, it'll probably cost about $500 a month to get 6 hairpieces a year including their haircuts and maintence, or maybe more. But they looked great. Good luck
