  1. As I've mentioned before I am weeks from my first fue, I had originally planned to take MSM and use aloe straight after then eventually back onto topical minox. Now, I've came to realise you are a bit of a pro in this game, what was the deciding factor to go with oral minoxidil? I have previously used it but didn't want to rely on it again post transplant as I'm still not 100% sure if its good for the body. I wanted to stay away from FIN as my Mrs is currently pregnant. Thanks
  2. I tried the rogaine foam 8 years ago but it didnt go far as my hair is 3-4 inches long on the top and it seemed to soak it all up! I'll maybe give the foam a go after FUE if I can find a decent supplier. Kirkland 5% liquid is easy to get in the UK which is why I have been using it and it seemed to spread easier on my scalp. Thanks
  3. Donor area looks good! Chart is helpful, I will use that too. I'm three weeks from FUE. Keep us posted!
  4. I will be travelling to another country for FUE so unfortunately a scalp test before hand isn't possible. It's 3 weeks away now, I just googled Sebum levels and I would say my skin isn't oily and I stay hydrated so hopefully they are fine - perhaps stopping minoxidil now will improve my scalp condition as it could be the reason for the dandruff. Thank you for your time, if theres anything further you think I should do, please let me know.
  5. I've been using a 2% ketoconazole shampoo 5 times a week for 7 years as previously I did get dandruff quite badly with the minoxidil (8 years usage). Sometimes the minoxidil makes my scalp feel slightly gummy and from time to time this leaves white flakes. Thanks for the additional advice, I've not long to go!
  6. Thank you for this. The scalp massage and use of seafood was new to me, I will use this advice! I have guidance but nothing on scalp condition, I was concerned about any dandruff I may have which may hinder the process or result. Perhaps I'm overthinking!
  7. Hi all, I have booked in for FUE in 4 weeks and I was wondering about my scalp. Is there anything I can do before the procedure to ensure it is in peak condition for the doctor? Is scalp condition a factor? I currently take Kirkland minoxidil and use Ketoconazole 2% shampoo - at time my scalp can get dry and leaves white dandruff(?). I did search the forums but could not find anything, thank you for your time!
  8. Coming along good and as expected, will be an exciting few months ahead once you get past the next few weeks! Have you any advice on how to make payment for the transplant in Turkey?
  9. Looks great, keep the updates coming please - I've booked with Demirsoy!
