  1. He looks so much better. It's strange how much hairline frames the face and makes the person look more natural and young..
  2. Not all but some should yes, to me like 70% of hair started growing right after ht and they are as long as my normal hair now at week 3, while 30% of hair is still small and not growing at all since HT. It depends if the follicle was too shocked and stopped growing the hair while being outside of body or if it managed and wasn't too shocked and then it just kept on growing when they were implanted again.
  3. I am currently past week 3 of my HT and for the last 5 or so days I definitely noticed hairs on my fingers when washing the recipient area or putting minoxidil on it.
  4. You can always do online consultations with detailed pictures and get opinions from good doctors.
  5. Hey all, I just wanted to ask you what do you think about using electric clippers on the whole head (donor AND recipient areas) to buzz down your hairs down to 1-2mm so it doesn't look as bad during the ugly duckling phase? I know all of you will say to consult with my doctor, and I will, but I am just asking for your thoughts on the subject. To me, since the grafts are absolutely anchored at this period of 4+ weeks, why would anyone advise against electric clippers at this point? Basically 80% of the hairs have shed anyway, so it's not like you can do some damage to the grafts or pull the hairs out when they shed anyway. Thoughts?
  6. If I may ask, why are you so opposed to using topical minoxidil?
  7. Tbh I'm in the same boat as you. I had my first HT around 3 weeks ago and when I closely inspect my scalp, in between my growing transplanted hairs I can see some hairs still the same lenght that they were the day of the operation, haven't moved by growing or shedding ever since, they are just there inside my head. It also got me worried that only the growing hairs are healthy and survived, but people say that all of those hairs will start growing eventually. Which I hope is what happens.
  8. Paddy recommended Aloe Vera and it really helps me with the itching and soothing my HT area.
  9. If you don't mind me asking, what kind of side effects do you get from topical minoxidil 5%?
  10. It's totally fine and looks natural, I've seen older people with 15 year old hairlines due to good genetics, no one will think it's too low. Don't worry about it.
  11. How long have you been taking finasteride? It takes some time to see it's results. You stopping taking minoxidil definitely sped up the hair loss, which should stabilize after you get back on minoxidil. After being on minoxidil and finasteride for 6 months see if there are any positive results. If the results are good, keep on applying the meds until you see the effects wearing off. After which you will need a 2nd hair transplant. In time however, you will definitely need to accept that you will need a 2nd hair transplant to add hair density to your crown area. Until then, you can buy some time with minoxidil and finasteride. So yes I suggest you to start using minoxidil 5% and in 6 months see the results. If you used liquid then try using foam maybe you will have less skin side effects.
  12. IMHO there is future in this and it's promising, but it will be quite expensive in the beginning for sure. Tens of thousands.
  13. I feel like it is less prominent when I cut my hair shorter, rather when it's longer and you can see patches without hair. How's yours going??
