July 6th, 2018

So today is July 6, 2018. I thought I would post some photos of my hair the way it looks now and then as my hair grows longer share some additional pictures. Perhaps members can provide their input and let me know what they think they like better in terms of length.  I guess that sounds strange but after all, this is a hair restoration forum :-)

Lol post some without the filter

I’m not sure if this is an attempt to troll, but the photos Bill posted of his hair are without a filter. This is a hair website and it is not necessary to post photos of your face. I do not see any photos on your profile at all. Perhaps you could post some of yourself as well.

Clearly the hairline is what matters most and it seems as though he is attempting to make it denser with filters. 

 

I will definitely be posting photos after my op on aug 9th with rahal, stay tuned. 

 

Still never got any temple shots done by rahal though

Bill,

Has several pictures in his profile of his hairline, I personally do not appreciate comments like "lol post some with out a filter" this to me seems like an attempt to troll. This is not tolerated by our community.

Literalno,

I resent Your comments and don’t appreciate you trying to make it sound like I’m attempting to make my hairline look denser with filters when I only used a filter  on a couple of the face pictures because I thought they looked cool and I was using them on social media. I did not take those pictures special to share what my hair looks like. That’s what the other pictures are for. I can certainly take dozens of pictures and have showing my hairline as Melvin has already proven. 

I am starting to get messages from various members claiming that you are a troll and likely another member who has already been banned. I have answered questions of yours and I’ve been very nice to you so I don’t understand why he would attempt to attack me on this topic. Personally, I really don’t care what you have to say  to me and I’m not offended because I have very thick skin. However, simply because of the way you present yourself, consider this a warning. If I see you continue to make derogatory comments towards anybody, you will be suspended.

 And what’s ironic, is it actually the pictures of the scalp from the top down angle that matter way more than a hairline picture. Hairline pictures are deceiving as even somebody almost completely bald can have a nice looking hairline but when somebody views the top of scalp, he can look incredibly thin. I think I’ve proven with the top down photos how thick my hair actually is. However, for you and any other critics, I will take some hairline photos  without any filters.

Besides, as a patient, why would I attempt to make my hairline look any better than it is when if I was on happy with my hairline, I would be showing it as it is and explaining how I need to go for another hair transplant procedure. I never post to deceive. I do not work for a hair transplant clinic nor do I sell hair transplants. Instead, I am the managing publisher of this community and provide information and help to people who need it. I am perfectly fine advising people not to get a hair transplant if I think they are not a good candidate. I’ve done it dozens of times.

Unfortunately the quality of the photos is not very good.  It does seem that you are keeping a longer length which could be either because you like it that way or because it serves to cover the thinning.  What I do like about your hair is the fact that you have waviness to it which helps with the coverage.  

With regards to hair length, there seems to be a length in which all hairs work together to provide some shingling and the most coverage.  I would visit with your hair dresser and start experimenting with different lengths.  When the hair is too long it weighs down and the thinning becomes more apparent.

If you are content with the density in the front and top, you may want to consider adding grafts to the crown.  Be conscientious that the crown is the "sphere" of the head and requires many, many grafts.  Medical therapy, (Propecia, Rogaine, laser and PRP), should be something you should discuss with your PCP or a hair professional.  Retention and enhancement of the native hair is imperative if you are considering hair to the crown.  Imagine, (and think of the crown as a circle), you have an island worth of hair and you continue loosing native hair, you may end up  with the "target" effect.  An island worth of hair and nothing around it.
