  1. I think the science and the logic behind microneedling makes total sense. blood rushes to those areas and if blood circulation is triggered by an act, that area must be nourished to better function and have better hair eventually good luck, i am on the fence about ordering one for my scalp too, let us know please if you see a good difference in few months and stay the course
  2. Sharing with my HT community brothers : 11 months completed, some random pics - after shampoo, blow dry only : Dr. Bhatti did a great job for me, can't thank him enough : I can sign off today, :) if i see myself before/after ( as you're the best judge always, based on your life/situations and improvements ) no regrets, fine job. also, everyone says looks very natural. I can share some donor pics too later :
  3. Hey Pyrat, I would recommend choosing work from home option for 2.5 months ( if its possible), if not, wear a hat -fedora , base ball cap not good for meetings, take at least 2-3 weeks off and after wards, avoid too many meetings, interactions if possible as red ness will be there.. until 3 rd month begins in most cases , it fades away for good hair style example : I would recommend getting sides buzzed completely or .3 or .2 and let the central part grow, it always adds to the illusion and blend them into spikes creating a thicker central illusion, if you overlap like i do check out my pics just posted on my original thread : you might want to try that. good luck
  4. Hey Petro, Just posted some random pics on my post, check them out , i am very happy with my results and you results, Lennney's looks really good. New beginnings for us : the bhatti patients lol
  5. can you recommend me a good shampoo and/or conditioner 9 months over after my HT and using any shampoo i could find
  6. i think we need to follow : " try and fail but do not fail to try " when it comes to HT, Hair growth and follicles, its complex science..... but some results should come using laser caps !
  7. it seems true, even extreme sunlight exposure or no sunlight at all also damages hair and contributes towards hair fall for example - people who wear tight turbans or caps all the time, will always loose hair as no light. light is life .... thats why lazer light caps are famous now a dayz
  8. agreed Lennney, i am going to walk in for prescription this weekend, then walmart pharmacy could sell me propecia 1 mg its just going to be a gap of 3-4 days of no finas after 6 months of continued use - i hope that shouldn't impact much
  9. I could see the difference - shine, conditioning, strengthening right after coconut oil..... if we use it regularly for years, i think its also one of the game changers that many ppl don't realize. same with rice water ( old ancient technique from chinese villages)
  10. I didn't ... now bought biotin gummies alone ( no folic acid) from wal mart....
  11. Lazy ass, I didn't go n checked on amazon ...... I end up buying from walmart shelf here lol Jamieson biotin gummies - it says take two per day, for healthy hair, skin , nails for $14 i think per box. https://www.vitamart.ca/Jamieson-High-Potency-Biotin-Gummies-100-Gummies.html?gclid=CjwKCAjw8ZHsBRA6EiwA7hw_se4aHrfQLG8VNvy-fk8i72YGeeFerY5d-HJnrLQWv2w5C2G3XwzLJRoCd5gQAvD_BwE Jamieson is a good brand for meds.... re: finastride, pharmacy told me i need doctor's prescription which i am contemplating if required or may be just stop it forever from now onwards.... 6 months was enough thanks Lennney
  12. BTW @Lennney my biotin and finastride stock ( from Bhatti's ) is going to finish in 1 week Do you have a name of biotin brand i can now purchase ( stock for next 6 months ) Do you know how/where to buy finastride ( propecia ) in Canada , I think it needs doctors referral first, only then i could go to drug stores and buy it
  13. more than shampoo, two full spoons at least , i most prefer it to stay overnight ( pillow covers could be washed later or protected ) dry hair only i apply at least 2 -3 times a week and let it stay overnight ..... welcome aboard
  14. Lol, I was at the residence in my university days with a few other folks and we watched on TV.... the entire situation it scared me ( i still remember ) never ever seen anything like that - a plane head on with a skyscraper , i called my NY Aunt that time too to make sure she's fine
  15. Was at the peak of my life, the best moments especially with that carefree natural hair ( 1000 per cm2 lol exaggerating ) but i guess no surgery can bring that back ever It's correct to say HT provides an illusion only so, I was out of illusion 18 years ago
  16. Great progress Lennney Agreed on the comment : daily shower is not healthy for hair thickness, I also shampoo every 2/3 days now and try to keep hair away from any water also for 2 days in a row sometimes. only coconut oil and let it sit there, moisturize the scalp nicely and then wash it
  17. Looks really good Lennney, sometimes you dont notice yourself but ask a 3rd eye, i am following your journey and you are almost there. good difference between your 5 month vs 7 month timeline - very happy to see that regarding finastride shed, there are mixed theories, ppl say if you begin finas and minox together ( as we did ), both individually will contribute towards shedding for 3 months each. Not sure if those 3 months are one after the other totalling 6 months or overlap each other
  18. LOL yeah some baby hairs are stubborn like that may be give him more time and pray that it grows to be a mature one
  19. Hey Lennney, i think we are all on the same page here; there are two components to this : thin hair small hair, growing very slowly , my main concern after 5 months is - do they ever catch up with your natural hair in terms of density, straightness, color, contract and most importantly equal length ? for example if my natural hair currently are 6 inches long, will 1 inch baby hair ever catch up to be 6 inch long if you comb, they all come to the same level and then cut them with scissors i am doubtful this would ever happen for every single hair follicle that was transplanted , we should just wish maximum # of grafts eventually catches up with the natural ones
  20. looks good, looks like you are on the right track. i like the hairline also, suits you facially
  21. looking good, in one pic, your hair looking really thick and dense, no bald patches ( except very small few areas ) but that should also thicken up with time
  22. products : minox, finas, biotin, baby shampoo, baby oil or coconut oil diet - eggs, lots of protein rich supplements you can also take - multivitamins, vitamin d, eggs, chicken, fish, super foods like avocado, walnut, othrer dry fruits, whey protein, work out, blood circulation, lots of water drinking, good sleep, relax your brain no smoking
  23. nothing to worry, i guess you are talking about your overall hair style ( primarily front) what i am referring to : is the least significant area ( donor ) but still its important area to be taken care of
  24. IMHO, yes you can test it yourself by taking few high resolution pics from top, sides, under sunlight etc all normal circumstances and mid length somehow can easily expose some signs especially from the donor area 3000 plus cylindrical shaped holes are extracted from donor, what do you expect - zero signs, but when hair are kept longer, they tend to overlap the ones below so it gives a dense look obviously especially after shampoo and blowdrying or if buzz cut around donor area and keep growing on the top ( disconnected undercut hairstyle which is in fashion today), it can look really good... tiny white spots are not actually noticeable that much but mid length in most cases, shows some very small gaps between bunch of hair patches as few areas are cleaned up forever lol... nothing is ever growing there again
