  1. Thank you, I can't expect any improvements on the crown until the 2nd HT, but I am hoping the mid-front area improves a bit more
  2. Month 6 Quick update - hair is probably around 2cm long now - haven't cut it for a while. People keep on commenting that it looks thick, but as you can see, it's weak behind the hairline. The crown looks much the same, though as I said before there has been some fluff grown there which should save me a few quid. The plan is to go back in November and get the crown / temples done, though fucking brexit may stop that. If I can get it done then, I will ask them to raid the lower nape area and beard for 1/2 the grafts. edit: forgot to mention, I reduced minoxidil to a maintenance dose of once at night. Everything else is the same.
  3. Ooo Microneedling is an arse - make sure you replace the roller regularly..at least it's on the crown where there's less pain receptors!
  4. It's a great result Cosmo, You may have been asked this, but what about another HT to fill in the crown / vertex area? Sorry if you've already been asked this!
  5. Hello @johanchicago I know it's not a great result, but your pictures are under pretty harsh lights. Could you show us more? Oh and please @Melvin-Moderator @Nebulosity Please treat this thread with respect, it's not about you.
  6. Hey thank you CosmoKramer, I'm terrified that the bit between the hairline (which seems OK) and the mid strip will not fill in more..but keeping fingers crossed 😃
  7. Month 4 Nothing much to report - it's grown to a grade 3 (9-10mm) and for the next couple of weeks I'll be buzzing it there as much of the 'new' hair is of different lengths. People notice a lot - even the guy down the off-licence commented, but under light it looks really really thin. As I said a couple months ago, I'm concerned that my thin (51 microns) hair is just too loosely packed in, but I can but wait. At least I know I haven't had a catastrophically bad result, so there is that. Medications are the same (Estradiol / Dutasteride / Minox / Biotin). Funnily enough noticed that I've had a bit more fluff grow over the crown area (where there were no transplants) - it makes no difference aesthetically, though it may save me a few more quid when I go back to Turkey. Next month I have to focus on my general health. May be that will help with the hair a bit, who knows.
  8. That looks..strange, have you been to a specialist? Is there some alopecia happening around where the hair was extracted from? Could you show other bits of the donor? Have you contacted Dr Yaman?
  9. Hi Superflash, Your results so far look ace. I can understand your concerns and feel the need to get the crown done, but it just seems more sensible to at least give them another six months to grow through given that a fair amount were already put there. I'm excited to see how it goes for you over the next half-year - please keep posting 😃
  10. Month 3 So, I should be in the middle of the 'ugly duckling' phase, but I'm not sure how the minoxidil affects things - theoretically it should minimise telogen. Anyway, it's still very early days. Medication is the same and the spots have reduced, though not disappeared. My phone camera is a bit useless, so the picture aren't terribly representative as it's really difficult to discern small hairs and translucent hairs. When looking at my scalp with a good light, it appears that there are lil hairs all over the front, though less dense near the temples. I'll do some proper pics (and try and find a better camera) for month 4 when I should be leaving the hideous phase. Also buzzing down the hair slightly as it doesn't grow evenly. Edit: Added a detail picture following 3mm buzz cut and about 30 mins after minoxidil application and with flash. Aside from turning my head red, it does show the hair better. It'll be my last close-ish buzz cut. Just a question for the wise residents of this place. Obviously I have to get the crown done (and I'll fill in the temples a bit too) and doing so in November, but given that I have functionally zero DHT (my testosterone levels are at female levels and I have Dutasteride on top taking out 97% of any DHT that does get converted). I will have far less DHT than 99% of women..why not use donor areas that are traditionally avoided e.g. Nape and the 1/2 inch ring around the top of the scalp? It's not like my pattern baldness will get any worse and those areas at the moment just look slightly more dense than the rest. It just seems a waste when I'm looking at using beard hair to fill in.
  11. For those who have used beard hair as a donor when they're low on scalp donor. Has anyone ever experience marks or scars after the beard donor area has healed? Is it *always* the area under the jaw? I ask as I will inevitably try and use as much beard hair as possible for my head (I'll be zapping it off later anyway), but I get a bit concerned that it will leave the skin with marks once it has healed..
  12. Great improvement from a month ago - not too long before you're out of the horrible phase =)
