  1. I started seeing the effects of the shed just after the 6 month mark, started Nizoral after 5 month post op. Just after the most recent video (6 months update) is when I noticed thinning from the shed, so you don't really see it in that video. I have stopped Nizoral for a month now and my shedding have slowed down. I can't really tell for a few months if the hair that shed grew back. But I'm just glad that my hair isn't shedding as much and it feels more balanced and not dry any more. I've been using shampoo every other day or every third day and just water rinse the other days. I'll post some newer pictures later. I take a pics of my hair every other day.
  2. The density has definitely increased since the 5th and 6th month mark. My hair growing longer has also given me more illusion of density and coverage. I've also noticed new growth coming from multi follicle growths, which should give me a little more density. A month ago I have thought about getting a touch up in the hair line to give it more density, but I don't think I need to anymore, my hair is looking really great now. I will probably save my donor for filling in my crown and behind my hairline when those hair start to thin.
  3. Here is my 6 months update. My hair has grown longer and I finally got a haircut! My hair in front isn't long enough yet though to get the hair style I want, but it was a great feeling to go to a barber shop. I haven't stepped foot in one for years since I used to shave my head myself at home. I also did a review for Toppik that you guys can check out... I wasn't paid/sponsored. I got good results from it and thought I would share my experience. Enjoy!
  4. This is a follow up to my 5 month progress video. My hair had been growing longer, not too much difference in density from the 5 to 5.5 month mark. In this video my hair is not styled and was just combed after getting out of bed. Will be posting more updates soon! Feel free to reach out with any comments, questions, or ideas on new videos. 5.5 months update: 5 months update:
  5. New video is up. It's my 5th day post op video. The intro is filmed at 7 mos This is one of the last "old" footage from the beginning of my transplant. The videos I'll post going forward will be more recent stuff.
  6. Hey guys, so i stopped Nizoral about 3 weeks ago. Still shedding in the shower a decent amount, hope it stops soon and stabilize. It has been really hard because it has definitely hindered my progress. Here are some pics I took today of the damage Nizoral did. Hopefully this terrible shed stops soon and the hair starts to grow back! I'll continue to update.

  8. Yeah will do. By the way Bill mentioned Revita shampoo. What are some of the top shampoo people recommend on this forum? I'm almost out of the shampoo the clinic provided me.
  9. Thanks guys, I stopped it immediately. I used Nizoral no more than 10 times total and it did this much damage. Hopefully my hair will start improving again in the next couple weeks. I don't think I will introduce anything new right now. When my situation improves I will take a look at Revita.
  10. Can someone also recommend something I can do for my hair right now? it's feeling dry right now, should I use a conditioner or just leave it alone and let it return to normal? Also can someone comment if the hair grew back after a Nizoral shed when they stopped? Thanks.
  11. I had my transplant 6 months ago and was seeing REALLY great improvement and growth. I was also on finasteride and minoxidil and bascially my hair loss was halted significantly. A month and a half ago I decided to start using Nizoral 2% too because of the "Big 3" and I've decided to stop using Nizoral after taking some update pictures today on my hair and noticed that I have experienced severe shedding the last few weeks being on Nizoral. My native hair and even some of my newly transplant hair seem to have fallen off and I've taken a big step backwards. I never noticed much if any hair falling out in the shower before Nizoral but have since been seeing hair on my hand when I shampoo. Currently really sad right now that Nizoral has basically caused me to hit a big halt on my improvement and caused me to look way worse than before. I started Nizoral 1x a week 1.5 months ago. Spex, do you think the hair that shed will grow back? I really regret starting Nizoral. 2 weeks ago Today

  13. Thanks for the response. I have read Spex's thread before, and ultimately I've decided to stop using Nizoral.

  14. I had a hair transplant 6 months ago and have had good growth since. I introduced Nizoral 2% to existing my regiment of 0.5mg finasteride and minoxidil 2x daily a month and a half ago and I feel like I am experiencing shedding. I am only using Nizoral once a week but I have noticed more hair on my pillow and in the shower when I wash my hair. At this point, should I continue Nizoral for longer to see if it reverses or just discontinue it? My hair was growing great before and I had less hairloss in the shower with just fin and minoxidil, so I am tempted to drop Nizoral and go back to that. Is it too early to quit Nizoral? I read that Nizoral might do more harm than good and is not necessary as part of the "Big 3" Can someone share their experience on Nizoral post transplant? Just a little more information I have been on Minoxidil for 4 months and finasteride for 8 months.
  15. Hi everyone! New video is up. Keeping it real once again so you can see exactly how much swelling you can get post surgery. This video shows my third and fourth day post op and the swelling was the worst on the third day. I looked scary lol... Feel free to reach out with any comments, questions, or ideas on new videos.
