  1. Hi I am starting to use Nizoral 1% and if it goes well will use the 2% version. How often would you recommend using Nizoral in either case?
  2. As I understand the minoxidil 5% solution (regaine or generic) contains Alcohol & Propylene Glycol to help absorption into the scalp. Is anyone aware of similar ingredient(s) being present in the regaine foam or the generic Kirkland foam to help absorption into the scalp, and what those ingredient(s) are?
  3. Hi Thanks for your replies very helpful Any clue about what the price ranges are for the Farjo clinic and the foreign clinics? (eg USA, Canada & belgium) As i understand the FUE is the best type of current transplants available but the strip harvesting FUT is more economical Are there any other UK transplant clinics that are worth investigating eg Harley street clinics or perhaps the HDC medical Trichology centre, London Any advice about there range of prices is also helpful Thanks
  4. Hi I am looking for the locations of hair transplant clinics on the south coast of the UK. I am in west Sussex near the towns of Bognor Regis, Chichester and Portsmouth. Does anyone know of any hair restoration clinics/doctors anywhere near my location or perhaps the web address of a list of doctors/surgeries in the uk and their locations? Many Thanks
  5. Is it necessary to keep using Minoxidil/propecia or laser hair coomb after a hair transplant if previously used? I would have thought that having a hair transplant would be a permanent solution to hair loss and that other treatments would no longer have to be used?! therefore the investment of a transplant saving on the long term (for life) costs of and the effort of continually using minoxidil, propecia and laser coombs. Why would I need to carry on with treatments such as Propecia, Minoxidil and laser combs apart from the goal of stopping the lose of hair that they have re-grown when a transplant could replace this hair for good without the effort/side effects of ongoing/timeless treatments If any naturally occurring hair that is still present at the time of transplant that subsequently falls out, I would then perhaps expect to have to pay for another transplant (I have read in ‘Hair Loss for Dummies’ that its advisable to come with a long term plan with the surgeon to take into account future hair loss or have future hair loss in a constituency plan) However If I did want to save on transplants costs then using Minoxidil/propecia and/or laser coomb to help stop future loss of the naturally occurring hair that’s left could be an option (I still have some hair in the front/middle of my scalp) I have also read that minoxidil/propecia are advised by some surgeons to be used following transplant even if not previously used Ideally I would want to stick to transplants due to having one off charges and not having to either pay regularly (minoxidil, propecia) or have the effort of their application (laser coomb and Minoxidil) or the risk of side effects (minoxidil and Propecia) If I was previously using these treatments I woud ideally want to stop using them and have a transplant to replace any hair that either has fallen out naturally or has re-grown and would fall out if I used then stopped using Minoxidil/propecia/laser coomb.
  6. Hi Thanks for the replies Is it necessary to keep using Minoxidil/propecia or laser hair coombs after a hair transplant? I would have thought that having a hair transplant would be a permanent solution to hair loss and that other treatments would no longer have to be used?! therefore the investment of a transplant saving on the long term (for life) costs of and the effort of continually using minoxidil, propecia and laser coomb That said if there is still some naturally occurring hair in the front of the scalp as I currently have for example at the time of a transplant I would expect that area would not need a transplant at that stage? However if that naturally occurring hair then falls out naturally I would then perhaps expect to have to pay for another transplant OR before it falls out use Minoxidil/propecia and/or laser coomb. Ideally I would want to stick to transplants due to having one off charges and not having to either pay regularly (minoxidil, propecia) or have the effort of their application (laser coomb and Minoxidil) or the risk of side effects (minoxidil and Propecia)
  7. Hi can anyone tell me the basic differences between FUT - Follicular unit transplantation and FUE - Follicular unit Extraction. Many Thanks
  8. Hi What happens if I decide to have a hair transplant but have previously used combe/minoxidil/propecia? Should i stop using any of the treatments i have used so as to allow any hair regrown as a consequence of any non-surgical treaments I have been using to fall out so a surgeon can see clearly what hair i have and dont have naturally? thanks
  9. Hi I have been advised by hairmax the maker of the pro 12 laser combe i am using that you should cover the whole scalp when using the combe- however is it nessecary to use it on the part of the head that havent receeded or thinned as much if at all ie the back and sides
