  1. Hi Everyone, A lot is that we hear about how Stress can be bad for Human Health in general and even for your Hair. I am curious to know how soon can this process work? the cycle of stress taking a negative toll on your hair ? Like lets say because of Stress, body creates Cortisol which ultimately creates DHT and then they act on Hair Grafts ? How fast is this Process ? Can it happen in one week? lets say one week of stress, and would that mean a negative impact on the Transplanted Hair or impede the Transplanted Hair Growth ? is it a slow process ? or can it happen overnight aswell ? especially if lets say a period of 10 Months to a year has passed after the Hair Transplant ? like can it start showing the ill effects in a week of stress one has gone through ?
  2. Yep ! I am talking about an occasional single Hair that comes out of the Transplanted area when I apply Minoxidil in the transplanted area, I do not apply Minoxidil in the entire hair. I only see about 5-6 Hair Strands per every shower whenever I wash my hair.
  3. isn't Minoxidil like a Fodder like a Fertilizer for the Crop in this case Hair ? The more the better ? How can it ever harm hair ? I mean I am saying, Even the Manufacturers of Minoxidil say apply twice for maximum results that's what I have been doing ? So can even Over application result in excessive shedding ?
  4. Hi Guys, I am in my Third Round of Hair Transplant and in the 9 Month after my Hair Transplant. Though I know that Hair Grafts are way...way..secured now after 9 Months, but this bloody thing keeps happening to me again...and again and again.. and just keeps happening. In my earlier two Hair Transplants I never applied Minoxidil on my Hair Transplanted area, and my Hair still grew. So I would not know if applying Minoxidil results in Hair shed even your Transplanted Hair because like I said I do not have any past experience, So now even after 9 Month while applying Minoxidil in the Transplanted area (Yes only in the Transplanted Area) I saw one very fine hair strand come out on my finger tips (And before anyone tells me that it could be from some other area, I will rest all that possibilities because I do not apply Minoxidil on the entire hair area) I just applied it in the Transplanted region. So what can I do besides sulking on the One Fine Hair strand that I saw which had popped out on my finger tip after applying Minoxidil in the Transplanted area region ? I hope that Bloody hair will grow back ! Will it ?
  5. Exactly Shera ! That's exactly my feeling it is a newly acquired possession that I have got and I am feeling so blessed ! So privileged !! and that's the reason I wanna really treasure it !! But some would say there is a very thin line between treasuring it and getting obsessed and going mad about it !! But seriously guys so after 7 months even shampooing it daily and no matter how gently or vigorously you massage your head to create foam and to rinse it ! It does not make any difference because massaging happens on the surface and hair roots are well rooted below the scalp right guys that's what you are saying ?
  6. Whoa ! With the Dramatic description, you did scare me !! Would others here also echo the same thing ?
  7. Hi Guys ! I am 7 Months old my HT and still get paranoid thinking about this, and even otherwise in normal circumstances also I have this question. I always get Paranoid while shampooing my hair, that am I not rubbing it, massaging it too much ? will this make my hair break and then make it fall ? Am I doing it too much vigorously to rinse it, I think I gently massage it with my finger tips to create foam and then rinse it and wash it (But yes, sometimes it can get a little vigorous, but I don't know ) but still I always get this feeling, always get Paranoid and fear to massage my hair while shampooing thinking what if it breaks my Hair ? Can this exercise of washing hair and massaging to make the foam result in hair loss or something ? I know I sound Paranoid but still have a doubt so.... What do you guys think ?
  8. There are lot of permutations and combinations to that. It is a complicated subject, and varies according to individual's aesthetic perspective. But I would give you a direct answer, 7 Cms is average, 6 Cms (from the middle of your eyebrows)would be aggressive. Hope this helps.
  9. Holy Cow !! You went from a Round Hairline to a Widow's Peak ! Whoa !! :eek: That is an immaculate job done, brilliant work, what a work of artistry truly amazing. Looks like you are good on donor hair ? What did Dr.Keser say ? Were you always good on Donor Hair ? How much of Donor hair is left with you further more ? What medications where you on ? Post your HT ? You must be feeling on top of the world !! isn't it ?? By far the best results I have seen !! Congratulations !!
  10. Thanks Spex ! I was getting worried because it has never given me a burning or a stinging sensation before, so was worrying it would not lead to death of my hair grafts ?
  11. Hi Guys, Just wanted to know, so I am 4 Months post my hair transplant I have been applying Minoxidil since last 3 months, initially I started with 2% and then scaled up to 5%. I do use the 5% these days. But I had a bottle left of 2% left with me so I thought of using it, So I applied it on my transplanted area. Never has it happened before, for the first few days till I was using it before I switched on to 5% but today when I applied it, I think I over applied it, it gave me a very burning and stinging sensation on the scalp where I applied it. I am getting worried I hope it would have not damaged my hair grafts which are about to grow. Would it have killed my growing hair grafts ? Would the overdose or overapplication of Minoxidyl would have killed it. Just freaking out ! So need help !! :eek:
  12. That was a great explanation Dr Bhatti. Thank You for it.
  13. What about developing Male Breast ? Sagging Chest ?
  14. Some of the Possible Side Effects described about taking Finasteride is it can lead to Prostate Cancer and can develop Male Breasts is what I have read ! How true are these side effects ? Does it really do this ? If yes, after taking for how long can this happen ? Are there any studies on this ?
  15. Yes, I am looking for Body Hair Transplant just to blend with my already existing front hairline hair. But like Dr.Bhatti said in his above video that the Body Hair a grafts are very fragile in their life and have to be quickly put in the preserving solution and put back, so my question also to Dr.Bhatti is what are the chances of Body Hair Grafts surviving ?And growing and increasing in length ?
