  1. Hard to get here so I’m still exploring that @ciaus a friend of mine suggested same
  2. I'm just on Fin now @ciaus, stopped Minox not due to any side-effects, but the hassle of watery applicant at night, and it somehow makes my hair sticky and oily looking on the next day.
  3. @BeHappy @InterventionalPDoc Also my hair on the centre grows slower compared to hair on side, so I always have a problem the centre (crown area) will have less dense hair and the sides have thicker denser hair, which somehow highlights my balding. However when I cut my hair really short the baldness is not really revealed, just overall short hair across.
  4. Posting my monthly progress here. I started using PROSCAR (to save some $$). I bought a pill cutter, and take around the 1.25MG on daily/once in two days basis. But I have only started taking the new med. Sometimes long hair is a bit annoying — itching, curly curly hair, which always denies to be combed properly lol..
  5. I'm mostly annoyed how my hair curls all the time, even after I groom it properly. Mostly this happens when my hair is wet or sweaty. For this reason alone I go for a short hair cut. Is this hair texture, hair curling due to balding or hair thinning? This looks so ugly and I hate this >.<
  6. Something inconsistent about hair growth over the recent months. I see my hair a bit "better" than photos from previous month. I also was not taking Fin or applying Minoxidil for the past 20+ days or so. Surprised how the hair looks almost as good as before, without any additional shedding. My hair was longer in the previous month, and shorter in this month. But it looks like the shorter hair (from this month) looks to give an illusion of more coverage compared to previous month.
  7. Wow, these results are mindblowing, @Abhinay Singh. Thanks for sharing this. Just wondering if the patient had his hair trimmed on the crown area as I can see some small hair around crown area, or is that the natural hairgrowth he has there.
  8. Hi @Dalveer, hope all is good with you. It should be your fifth month now, and I hope things show good progress in your side. Waiting for updates for my own reference and confidence
  9. Thanks for the photo update @paddyirishman. As always, a picture speaks more than the words. It will be great if few more hair loss patients can share their post-op scalp or beard area photos on a shaved, trimmed styles on this thread. This is something I look forward to know as a potential HT candidate.
  10. I believe it is available over the counter, without a prescription in any pharmacy, or based on your region it might be even available to purchase online. I do believe however that you'd take oral minoxidil only under an experienced doctor's advice.
  11. Thanks @tressful11. I was on Dutasteride for first three months, but didn't see much improvements compared to what I saw in 2 months of Finasteride, to which I switched on a doctor's recommendation. Haven't tried dermarolling yet, but have been thinking about it too.
  12. Okay, may I know how long you were on Fin or did you still continue or tried something else @tressful11?
  13. Actually yes, I only tried Propecia during 1 or 2 months, other months I was on generic Finasteride. By the way, I am taking 1mg Finasteride (daily once in the morning).
  14. I don't particularly understand Finasteride, because the most recent photo I took today shows my crown area to be a bit worser than the recent months before. Hmm, does it have to do with my dose, or the brand of Fin I use? I'm not really worried the Fin cannot help me cover my crown or progressive hairloss, I'm worried thinking if this would be the cast post HT, which would mean the medication might not help me in the long run by not helping me delay the progressive balding. Any thoughts, anyone?
  15. Sorry to see this @watterot, but I hope things get better. Perhaps in a year's time your transplanted hair would grow longer, and you'll be able to comb over. However this shouldn't stop you from doing another HT to coverup the patch, since the no. of grafts would be fewer compared to a mega session. I have been looking at clinics and doctors too. So far I'm only impressed by Dr. Suneet Soni's Medispa and Dr. Pratheep Sethi, Dr. Arika Bansal from Eugenix. The latters representatives are also polite, kind and faster to respond to all kinds of queries. Due to COVID-19 situation my HT plans have
