  1. Hard to tell. Try taking a pic of it wet. Might give a better idea of what’s going on beneath.
  2. Hair looks great for mid 40s. I wouldn’t touch HT. Save your money. Most normal folks who aren’t obsessed with hairloss wouldn’t even notice your thin spots.
  3. I was swimming at a college party and a guy there was like “dude, you’re getting a spot on the back of your head.” I didn’t believe it. I’d always had the most hair of all of my friends. It was so thick I had to have the barber use thinning shears to taper the top. Sure enough, got home got a hand held mirror to check the back. Son of a...! Jumped on propecia for a few years and it slowed the progress, but didn’t stop it. By the time I was 30 I thought $60 a month was a waste to not regrow hair. Was a solid NW5 by 40.
  4. My guess is he is throwing 1000 grafts in the crown to give a nicer transition. It won’t cover much but it won’t look like you go from hair up front to a completely bald crown. More natural look. It will still be very thin.
  5. Do you have any photos of the area before you started removing the transplant? Any pre op pics as well?
  6. I know nothing about that product there. I got the over the counter 1% Nizoral brand at my grocery store. Twice a week use means you basically can get a year out of one bottle. Has a nice minty smell.
  7. Shifty, We need to see more angles and better quality pics to make a better assessment. I can tell you my loss looked exactly like yours at 35 and I got on meds. It slowed down considerably to where I didn’t see hairs on my pillow anymore. But at 45 on meds I am a classic Nw 5-6. From just the one pic, what you have on top looks like it will go by the time you’re 50. Just be conservative.
  8. We will not see anything like a cure in our generation. I’ve been hearing these claims for 25 years now. My guess is we’re stil 30-40 years away.
  9. Seconded. Would love to know because that is a pluggy look.
  10. Without being able to tell what’s really happening at your hairline it’s hard to say. You’ve got a large area that looks like it will eventually go if you don’t get on meds. But I wouldn’t throw a whole bunch into the crown without having a feeling for how much you’ll need up front eventually.
  11. Wouldn’t worry just yet. Looks like just normal shed to me. You’ve got 3 more months before it starts to really grow back in.
  12. Lol! And they both still have hair in their 70s!!!
  13. Absolutely Harry. I’m more into going a little slower too. However there are price breaks for more grafts. So that’s a consideration as well.
  14. Thanks for the reply John! What kind of procedure did you have done? How many grafts? Any pics? ***Nevermind John. I found your thread. Wow! You had amazing results for so few grafts.
