Hair Loss Treatments

Have you ever had a hair transplant?:
No
Current Non-Surgical Treatment Regime:
Propecia (Finasteride), Generic Minoxidil 5% for Men, Nizoral Shampoo, Courve
Other Non-Surgical Hair Loss Treatments:
Tried the max laser comb for about 2 years and it was completely useless. I wasted £325 on it as it was FDA approved. Still have it in perfect order but all I got from it was red burn marks on the scalp even though I used it very strictly in line with instructions just a few minutes a week. I know now why no reputable surgeon recommends it. What a scam!
Comments about hair loss treatments you've tried or are considering:
Tried minoxidil on its own but again no good. Tried provillus, procerin, apple polyphenols and even the latest scam, viviscal. Only recently started on finastiride and all I had to pay for 7 months supply wasa the prescription charge of £7! As long as you get a private prescription all you have to pay is the prescription charge in UK!

I know this 44 year old guy at work and I often wonder if he is wearing a very good system because his hair at the fringe always seems to be the same length. It is quite a floppy fringe of coarse hair and neatly shorn in round...

Ailesbury and Balckrock clinics Dublin

  Ailesbury clinic talks about extracting one hair at a time rather than the entire follicle, Is that possible and if so why are all the top FUE clinics not using this method? Their consultation involves a nurse/sales person who does not take photos of the hair and you do not get to sit down and spend time with the doctor who is going to do your procedure until the actual day...
