  1. Hey, looks good so far. The pics are low quality so I can't tell if there is any new growth. was the recipient area totaly bald? if you don't have new growth it's completely normal for this stage. I can tell you from my experience that every time I see redness in certain area 2-3 days later i can see a new hair popping out, so keep that in mind. my recipient area was completely bald so I don't have to question whether it is native or HT hair. I don't think your hairline is aggressive at all, it's completely natural. but I am biased, I like aggressive hairline and that is what I asked for. keep updating
  2. Hey everybody, 2 months update. Most of the hair has shedded. from a far the temples look empty and sick. But closer look I can see a lot of new hairs (look closely at the pics) It's a bit early for growth, maybe because all the supplements I take, maybe not.
  3. I'm using it on transplanted hair only (the transplant was on a completely bald areas). So I guess that is not a problem for me. some doctors say that minoxi makes hair grow faster and stronger because the grafts get more nutrition. so using minoxi on the HT hair should show you results a month earlier, so they say.
  4. I read that on the forum, as well, but it doesn't make any sense. minoxidil is a hair growth product and not hair loss product. If it causes shedding, why on earth it got FDA approve for hair loss?
  5. and did you follow those instructions? when did notice hair growth?
  6. Thank you! I read that sometimes minoxidil may cause shedding of the HT hair, is it based? My clinic did not instruct me to take minoxidil. the Dr said that if I want to use it, I can use the foam after 1 month and liquid after 6 months (because liquid has a higher chance to cause redness).
  7. What do you guys thinking about Minoxidil use after HT? I've never used it before. I read that it can accelerate the growth process in about a month. I also read here in the forum that it can also harm HT (don't know how). I have been using it for 20 days now 2 timed a day. I really don't know whether I should stop or not. I don't want to do anything that can slightly harm my HT, even if it means longer (or normal) ugly duckling phase. Any advice/thoughts?
  8. hey, I had HT about 40 days ago. I have started to use minoxidil on the transplanted area after 23 days. had anyone done that and live to tell about it? is it safe? the doctor says it is ok. also online doctor says it is ok and can speed up the growth prosses. but i red a lot in the forum, that it can damage the HT hair. any thoughts?
  9. Hey everybody, this is a 1-month post update (the photos below were taken at 30 days mark at least). The situation is dire, almost 90% of the transplanted hair has been shedding. I guess I need to look in the mirror and welcome with a heavy heart the ugly duckling phase :) The shedding in one temple is worst than the other - can't really explain why. I don't know if you guys can see it in the pics. but there are small hairs sprouting out, I'm having a hard time to believe these are newly grown hairs after only 1 month. maybe slow growing hairs from the HT, we will see in time. Another thing, As I'm suffering through this ugly duckling phase, I decided I am going to do what ever I can to accelerate the prosses. So I'm going to share with you guys the medication/supplements/shampoos I'm using, tell me what you think: 1. of course Propecia ( actually Proscar which I split 4 ways - I got a year supply from ASMED clinic). 2. minoxidil 5% foam - started at day 28 and will continue using it for 5 months (I don't like, never used it, but it helps growth so I will try just about anything). the clinic says not to use minoxidil solution (only after 6 months for it causes skin irritation, unlike minoxidil foam) 3. Nizoral shampoo 2/3 times a week (started after 5 weeks) 4. Sebamed anti-hair loss shampoo (with caffeine) for the days I'm not using Nizoral. 5. maxi hair supplements - which contains Biotin, MSM and a lot of different types of vitamins for hair growths. 6. saw palmetto + pumpkin seed oil The pics:
  10. Hey, 10 days have passed since the HT. The donor zone completely healed - no redness, no scars. I feel itchiness though. It seems that they did a good job on the extraction phase. The density is lower in the transplanted area relative to the native hair, but I guess once the hair will grow and given that most of the grafts are 2+ hairs, it will look ok, but we will see. Also the transplanted zone in totaly numb. I don't know if this is normal. I'll ask the clinic. After day 6 my face returned to normal. pics (HD + flash + florecent light - so no cover ups :)):
  11. Hey mate, great result! really! i was at asmed 8 days ago. I had the same area +hair line+temples as yours. I hope ill get good results as you
  12. looking great. just got back from ASMED also. If i'll have density like yours i would be very happy
