rws's Hair Loss Story
Noticed thinning in my mid-20s, and started Regaine, then a few years later, finasteride in my late 20s. My best advice is: catch it early. Attacking the hair loss early has really helped to stabilise it, and thinning has ground to a halt. However, I was still unhappy with the thin areas (mainly at the front of my hairline) and spent years using cosmetic concealer products like Toppik. I'm not knocking those, as they have really been a lifeline to me and my self-confidence - but the time had come to make a more pro-active and permanent step towards feeling happy with my looks. I finally took the plunge and had two FUE sessions of approx. 1500 and 1200 grafts in 2011 and 2012. Best decision I ever made - over the moon with the naturalness of the results.
