  1. Sorry chaps, life has been so busy so haven’t posted a 12 month update. I’m now at 13 months and my hair is actually a joke how good it is. It’s been the best decision I ever made. The number of compliments I get on my hair from people who have no idea that I’ve had any work done is amazing! I still read a lot of posts on here but it’s hard to stay as involved when hair loss is not something you think about anymore. I’ve attached a photo of me right now in my car so you can see what it looks like. And one of me out in natural light. I’ve let it grow out and I’m trying a different look. No concealer, just hair spray!
  2. No I don't at all. Should just delete it. I don't use Saw Palmetto as I noticed a few sides. Stopped Pumpkin seed oil years ago. Used Lasercomb for the first 3 months of recovery and then stopped. So really all I'm using is Propecia, Nizoral shampoo and a daily tablet of MSM and Biotin.
  3. 11 Months Post Op Still going strong. I've grown my donor area out to see how it looks and as you can see it looks absolutely fine at this longer length. Crown has also really thickened up now. Final post next month.
  4. How many people have killed themselves? What kind of scare mongering is this? You are aware that millions of people take this drug daily without any issues whatsoever. Do you own research, speak to your GP. End off.
  5. Nearly 10 Months Post Op Very happy with where I am. Not having to use any concealer when styling my hair now. The second transplant has added the density that I was looking for. I turn 37 tomorrow and I'm hoping that I'm pretty set for a good while now. Propecia seems to be still working well and there is always DUT if not. Taken these photos in the harshest light I could find. Will do another update at the year mark now as any changes are very minor.
  6. I switched from propecia to generic a few years ago for around 18 months and lost a lot of hair in the process. I would recommend everyone to spend a little more and buy propecia.
  7. 8 and a half months Sorry I've been quiet but have been away for most of the holiday period with my family. Not the greatest photos as being honest my hair loss is a thing of the past and not something I worry about one bit anymore. I restyle my hair with my hands during the day, go out side with it as it is after waking up. It's crazy the impact it has had on my life. I even had a new girl in the office this week tell me that I look like I will never lose my hair as I get older. Love it. Hair is lighter due to trying out a sun activated bleach dye whilst being away. Went a big ginger.
  8. Couldn't agree anymore Melvin. Everyone seems to now expect a full head of hair after one pass. People need to understand that even after a number of surgeries you will still never be back to where you were pre-hair loss. We are working with a limited number of grafts to provide an illusion of density. In large this lack of understanding and disappointment is why I've been spending less time on this forum. Comparing these two photos this is a very good result for the amount of grafts. Everyone needs to remember their starting point.
  9. Cheers chaps, really appreciate it. I am genuinely over the moon. I really don't even think about hair loss anymore. The crown has filled in nicely as well which I'll show at the 7 month update. I would love to close my temple points a little but I just don't have the donor left to do it.
  10. Today is a good day! 6 and a half months and my hairline is really maturing and looks so natural now. This is my hair brushed back with gel in it and I couldn’t be any happier with how it’s turning out. No fibres in it whatsoever. This is where I wanted to get too. Can’t even put into words how happy I am with how it has turned out. Hopefully will see a little more improvement over the next few months as well! i
  11. Good luck for your procedure today. I would agree about the deep sleep concern as I lost a graft myself on the first night after my second procedure due to this. Whatever the doctor tells you, they are doing so to optimise your results so trust them.
  12. Cheers guys, appreciate it. I do think I'm one of those people who will always want more. Have to keep looking back at my first pre-op photos to remind myself just how far I have come.
  13. 6 Months Post Op Not much to say. Hairline is much better and hopefully it will improve a little more as it matures. Looking back at my first procedure my hairline was really thin and sparse at 6 months and then really thickened up by month 9 so hopefully this will be the case again. Will update again at 7 months.
