  1. yeah man... Mornings • Minoxidle 5% foam • chinese supplement (for better blood flow) • 150mcg biotin supplement • drops if Iodine colloid • 10ml of Bio Silica Evenings • 1mg Finasteride (Thai brand Siam Firide) • 1ml of Minoxidil 5% oil Diet Walnuts Pumpkin seeds Apple Cider Vinegar mixed drinks pretty much zero dairy Shampoo & conditioner with Keratin 2-3 times a week and Nizoral 2% once a week Thats about it really I tend to buy in bulk to save cash
  2. i came back here to share my experiences not be dragged back into debates, for future reference please only ask questions that relate to my experience, or i just will delete my account i thought i had made myself clear,
  3. the whole point of a hair transplant is to improve the overall look, you take from the back and sides is because thats what remains and in those areas our better blood flow is better and perhaps less DHT, but i have always suspected you take those good hair and place them into a war zone area with DHT you are going to get infected with DHT, makes perfect sense, its only my opinion
  4. "they say" many things, but I suspect its complete bullshit, saying hair is immune to DHT because its taken from a zone and placed into another zone somehow magically makes them DHT resistant, nah i dont think so, never have and never will. For instance, why is the crown known as the black hole of hair transplants, this goes completely contradicts what "they say"
  5. some areas like the crown have reduced where other areas have remained pretty much the same, everyone is different and everyone has a different method for maintaining their best look, for me i notice hair loss when I tend to forget taking minoxidol and get lazy, then after a month or so it grows back again, there is not real answer
  6. new short hair cut today, no toppix just butter hand cream for the wet look #2 blend on back and sides
  7. thanks dude, I think the results are pretty good too, I had to let the cat out of the bag and fess up couple of years ago to my closest friends who started seeing a massive difference in my appearence, all of them admitted feeling bad for that nasty banter with the typical bald jokes and all of them were well impressed and "hats off too you mate for doing something about it" a few of them even said, they would have tried talking me out of it, anyway thanks for the kind words, i'll try and hang around this site for a while, I just get worried that I will get dragged back down by trolling and FUT v FUE debates, if that happens i'll probably delete my account for good. Life is pretty good at the moment
  8. This is from start of my journey to post 3 year
  9. Hey Guys for those who remember me how are you and for those who I don’t, My name is Seth, its been many years since I took the HT journey and I wanted to share my story. To bring you up to speed, it has been 5 years since I first had 3000 grafts with Dr Bhatti then shortly after had another 1000 placed then 2 years later needed to fill more in the crown, during that i would say 90% of the implants have survived except for the crown, yes the black hole of hair transplants has happened. Sadly its just never been great but i did see Dr Bhatti in Melbourne last year and he said I have about 600 grafts left and about the same again with BHT so a total 1200 is still up my sleeve which I will use soon. I could write a long message about what i do to maintain my hair but I was reading over one of my threads with a detailed here https://www.hairrestorationnetwork.com/topic/43840-4000-fue-virtually-zero-scarring-with-dr-bhatti/?page=3&tab=comments#comment-431223 and really nothing much as changed I still try and take Minoxidil 5% twice a day, 1mg finistred, good hair shampoos and dandruff scalp products, Anyway 5 years down the track i am glad I have had my HT, I suspect with 1 more procedure will give me a nice head of hair for a few more years. Worth the money thats for sure, any questions I’ll try to answer them in the near future. Attached are some very recent selfies, the crown is the issue but when I need it I add a little of concealer which works amazing with my transplant many kind regards Seth
  10. I'll try and get some pics done, as for my donor area. Honestly I have no idea how many grafts I have remaining, not many if any. Probably enough for 1 last effort to fill more of the crown but its a long long long journey, unsure if I can be bothered, looks good enough
