  1. Hair is kinda choppy since I trim it myself Photo 5 years ago when I was 25.
  2. Hey guys, I had my head clipped with a 0 guard when I started to try to get consultations and was told I needed to grow out my hair to make an evaluation . Well here I am after 2 months of growth . I still have most of my hair line and I don’t mind where it is but the left side has receded more and would want to get it evened out . Of course behind the hairline is where the trouble starts. In the really thin areas I can si miniature hairs that seem to never grow . I’ve been on fin for 10 months and 5% for 6 months . Questions for the vets Fue or FUt - I used to wear my hair with a 2 guard at the bottom Hairs/grafts estimates
  3. Hey guys, I decided to go with tricopigmentation rather than a HT at this moment in my life. I do not mind the shaven look as long as its full. I am a very active person so i think its the best option for me. No more Finasteride or minoxidil.... and already trim my head 3-4 times a week. So now the dilemma is finding a Veteran artist in TX - (Dallas , Houston , Austin) . I've found some clinics but they do not seem to emphasize on the artist or have many pictures of their work. I would hate to be the guy they dust of the pigmentation gun for ( i do not want to be anyone's training aid). Any suggestion on a facility ?
  4. Thanks for the replies , I’ll look into Dr. Arocha. Here is picture of the back .. the sides are much much thicker.
  5. Hey guys, here is a quick summary of my hair situation . About 3 years ago my nice thick hair started to go quickly after I stopped using rogain and it never came back.. I am 30 now and going to get married in 11 months . I have been on finasteride for the past 6 months without any changes which I guess it’s what it’s meant for but I was hoping for a bit more of a change with the drug. I am now considering a transplant and want to get some insight/opinions before I go see a surgeon . Expectations on density in the front Total hairs/grafts needed estimates Cost in Texas? Fue or fut for my hair type. I almost hope I would of started balding evenly but it is mostly concentrated on my left side. The sides are supppper thick since birth. here are some pics or before the curse and now .. feel free to comment/ insult
  6. My doctor gave me a prescription here in the states and it cost $13 for a 3 month supply without insurance at Costco...
