  1. Thanks for this, Luke! Really appreciate it. It's a bit of a relief that you can see a bit your scalp too. Don't get me wrong, I'm not happy your hair isn't superdense (which it still isª). It's that it looks so incredibly thick and dense in all the other photos that I thought my HT wasn't that successful in comparison. Now I see that it's more a case of my bathroom mirror light being superstrong and that it's natural too.
  2. Hi Luke! Can I ask you a small favor? Now worries if it isn't possible, but could do shot the same kind of photos but in the harshest light possible? I say that because I had my HT almost 11 months ago, so my growth should be basically complete. And my hair looks good, much better than before the surgery, don't get me wrong. But at the same time, it's nowhere thicker and denser as yours. If I look it under a potent and harsh light, I can see my scalp in the front. Now I wonder if that happens to you too depending on the light or it's that my HT hasn't provided as much density as you have.
  3. I'm around the 10 month mark post HT and I wonder if I can use Nioxin products for my hair. Anyone else uses it? Are they safe for HT hair?
  4. That’s a really thoughtful answer. Re: medication, I’m doing Rogaine twice daily.
  5. Just for the sake of discussion, let’s image I hadn’t had HT yet and wanted to, how much graphs do you think it would be to correct the hairline?
  6. I appreciate everyone’s comments on here. I still feel unsatisfied with my current hairline, but after hearing you all I’ll put a raincheck on it and wait 6 months or so before taking another look at it.
  7. I might expressed myself wrongly. My issue isn’t with the results of the surgery, I’m fine with them (while hoping for more density in the months to come). What I want is to fill up my receding hairline, which was untouched in my first HT. I’m referring to the parts marked in red. How many graphs you think would be necessary?
  8. A bit of background: I’m 33 and had my first HT 9 months ago. My problem was that my hair was very thin in the front and you could clearly see my scalp with a harsh light or when parting it. So the goal of the HT was to make that area a lot more dense. At that time, the doctor decided not to alter my hairline saying that it was the right kind of mature for my age, and being that wasn’t my main worry, I agreed and let him to what he wanted. Now that the time has passed, I’m reasonably happy with the new density and thickness. And hopefully it still isn’t as full as it’ll be in 3 or 4 months. On the other side, I really regret not having corrected my receding hairline. As you can see in the photos, a “widow’s peak” is clearly present. I’m seriously considering going through a 2nd HT in order to alter my hairline. I don’t want it to be fully “perfect” because it’d look fake then, but I’d prefer it less pronounced. How big would think (in terms of graphs) this would need to be? Those areas are small, but being at the front the density of hairs per cm2 needs to be very high.
  9. The volume and density is amazing, Luke. Can I ask which products do you use for your hair, currently? I'm talking about shampoo, conditioner, maybe clay or fiber, some sort of thickening agent...
  10. And what about clay vs pomade vs fiber vs cream... totally lost with so many choices. My hair is kinda short, and don’t want anything supersticky and shinny. Also being post-HT is still thin.
  11. I had the HT at the end of last year, so it’s not recent. But I wonder if wearing pomade can be somehow not advisable. In case there’s no issue with wearing it, which type or brand do you recommend?
  12. Thank's! I was worried that that would have been double-grafts or something like that. So the hairs from the donor area are thicker, I didn't know that. I'd be curious from someone that has had HT for more than a year and currently buzzes his hair would post photos and see how it looks.
