  1. Around 18 months. Going for the gylenhal. Donor never recovered 🤷🏻‍♂️
  2. N=1 but still caused me to throw my tub away 😂 https://www.reddit.com/r/tressless/comments/elyekg/results_are_in_for_my_experiment_with_creatinefin/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf
  3. Damn, might have to reconsider my use--been using it on/off for years and currently on for about 2 months. Noticed a lot of size gains but hair seems a bit thinner recently (hence searching this topic). Might drop to once a week. Combined with fin I would hope that's not too bad.
  4. Lol I know, I need to stop complaining about the donor. The number of compliments I've gotten on my hair has been insane
  5. Ask and ye shall receive 18 months, styled with minoxidil foam which thickens it a bit
  6. A few more donor pics. Decided against SMP. Bought some Dermmatch to test it out, but overall i think i just need to keep my hair a bit longer. Dermmatch could come in handy post-haircut if they go too short. Right Left (comparison) Right (Dermmatch)
  7. Does anyone have any thoughts on doing SMP in the donor area? It's still noticeably thinner at shorter lengths, and i'm thinking that quarantine might be a good time to get it touched up.
  8. Gents, Snapped a few pics pre- and post haircut this week and figured you guys might like to see them. No toppik, no dermatch, etc. Straight up. Pre-haircut (Bieber mode) Post-haircut
  9. Hey Shook, Tbh, I didn't watch it too closely after about the 7 month mark except for the donor. Reason being that I was happy with my recipient area at month 7 so any additional growth was just a bonus. I think there hair thickened/darkened a bit in the second half of the year, but nothing substantial. From looking at your 6 month update you already have a killer head of hair. Probably time to be less worried about your hair and more worried about getting fucked to death by the fairer sex 😜
  10. Thanks Melvin! Thanks for keeping this forum going with high quality posts. I know you have to deal with some BS drama sometimes, but this forum is incredibly valuable for those researching hair transplants (like my former self).
  11. Alright boyos, here's the final 12 month update. Overall I'm happy with the recipient area. Donor is still thin, but looks better with a bit of additional length. If I were to do it again, I would ask to have the donor grafts taken from throughout the donor, rather than just the right side--but whatever. I probably won't check this site very often now, at least not until I "need" another HT--but will try to login in occasionally to encourage other members and respond to any questions.

  12. That's awesome! Happy to chat with him via PM if that's helpful for him. I've tried to keep (most) all questions in this thread to help it be a comprehensive resource for people getting a Diep FUE (similar to your thread), but happy to answer any one-off questions he might have.
  13. Just had a date with a total babe (like wifey material) but she sat on my bad side, so hoping that doesn't sink me for a second date. Feeling like Costanza
  14. Btw, one of my buddies is getting a HT and after seeing my results decided against Dr diep, because of the extraction style. Going with Dr Alexander instead. Definitely agree that the state of the donor matters, just trying to find the most flattering style at this point to camouflage a bit.
  15. For those curious what a low taper fade looks like, see pic below. Only thing i'd be worried about would be scarring showing with the hair that short. That being said, scarring on fair skin is probably less noticeable than a thin spot contrasted against dark hair--so perhaps the better of two evils 😈
  16. I'm assuming that chances the donor improves post 10 months is relatively slim, right?
  17. Dang, appreciate you compiling this side by side. Didn't realize how good the results were until looking at this. Obviously would be nice to have an untouched looking donor. I've noticed with a little more length it looks better, so maybe I'll start cutting to a 6 or 7 rather than a 4 (which I did about a week before these pics).
  18. 10 month update boyos! Overall i'm very happy with the results Only thing that would've made it better would've been a less thin donor on my right side (i.e., the side of the extractions). Is what it is though at this point... OH (harsh) Front (harsh) Right donor (harsh) Left donor--no extractions (harsh)
  19. Gents, See 9 month pics. All pics are with dry hair and without minoxidil foam applied. OH (harsh) Front (Harsh) Left (Harsh) Right (Harsh) Back (Harsh) OH 2 (Harsh) OH (Soft) Right (Soft) Left (Soft) Back (Soft) Front (Soft)
  20. Anyone have any conditioner recommendations? I was looking at the below but my post op instructions say no oil for 12 months post op.

  21. 8 month update Feels like i've been shedding a lot recently, but that might be in my head. Overall, happy with recipient. Hoping for a bit more regrowth in donor (right side). Overhead Overhead 2 Frontal Donor (right) Donor (back) Donor (left)
