It's been raining before and he looked better.

Like myself and Spex said - I think he's using less concealer.

It's not rocket science is it? Most of us have spent years on these forums we know the timescales of hts and the effects of concealer, it makes me laugh that it's even up for debate by any user of this forum that he doesn't use concealer it's a fact he does but on the other thread which has been used since day 1 of rooneys ht there's been people saying he doesn't use concealer. The fact that we're seeing regression now just proves he's weaning off the concealer like any of us would, I personally think he'll have to keep using it in the crown for life or get some work there too.

If anyone has the game recorded watch all the man u celebrations, someone ruffles his hair and he's not happy he moves away very quickly to stop them and to readjust his hair.

Oh man, what does he expect? Was he never going to do a header
again? It's soccer - of course your hair is going to get ruffled up. With topik or nanogen I can see the problem. But with a good solid base of dermmatch I think his hair could withstand rain or a tussle or two.

He's ok heading as you do that with you're forehead but man united always celebrate ruffing the guy who scores head but someone did Rooney big time and it wasn't even his goal lol. Even my dad said I've never seen him react like that I think it's because with it raining you can rub the concealer out or it could be because he needs his hair to lay in a certain way to cover the area well. My hair before my last 2 transplants used to look decent but if it got moved out of place it looked poor.

Yeah, I think Rooney should have just come out and stated it takes a year to see results and it might look worse before it looks better. As it stood, the media could have been noticing how much better Rooney looks as time went on. Now, as he gets off concealers, people are going to say he is looking worse.

I have never seen a single game of soccer in my life, so all I know about him is what I see on this forum. My biggest advice concerning Rooney is to get off his jock strap. It seems every time you turn around someone is scrutinizing the poor guy.

I guess he can't be taking propecia as that is a banned substance for a professional footballer(?)

No FUE this summer unless he gets injured for the Euros, so I expect he will be back in the chair in Summer 2013.

It may not be a perfect result but it certainly isnt bad. Unfortunately for him the cameras are always pointing down at his head.

I dont know how many grafts he had, most people have said 3k. If thats the case I think he's had a really good result , considering where he started.

Propecia was a banned substance but it isn't anymore:

Quote:
The News of the World this week reported that England football star Wayne Rooney is planning to start taking the prescription-only hair loss medication Propecia after he got sick of teasing about his balding pate from teammates. Rooney, who is paid ?100,000 a week to play as a striker for Manchester United, has apparently already has a consultation to begin the treatment.

Previously, footballers were unable to take Propecia. The active ingredient finasteride was banned in the sport, as regulators were afraid it could mask steroid use. Now it has been made legal and apparently Rooney, 23, is hopeful it could help with his early-onset hair loss and is intending to combine the pills with a topical lotion he will rub into his scalp.
