  1. What do people think about the direct hair implant procedure? I dont understand why everyone talks about strip when this one is less painful and more successful?? If anyone knows any downsides to it Id love to hear since it sounds too good to be true!

  3. Well I am pleased so far. I have been to my appointment and its sounds too good to be true...do you know much about the direct hair implant procedure? I dont understand why no-one has mentioned it here...?? Zara . . . With regard to information, I can only restate what this forum used to be good at - and that is to get you to read, read and read again. Spend a few months digesting all the information that's available here - and try to work that in to your ideology of budget, expectations, eventual choice of surgeon (e.g. would you prefer male vs female?) etc. . . . keep asking questions that will enable YOU to make a measured decision - but only when you have ALL the facts. I think there was a young lady from the UK who went by the name of 'Bee' . . . maybe she occasionally logs on. You might do a search for her last mail. Regards
  4. Have you tried some smaller or lighter weaves? Ive tried all kinds of extensions- glue on-bonded-weave- I guess I will not have that sort of density but at least I will havea normal hair parting. Im just so conscious every time Im on a train sitting down taht everyone could see its a wig type attachment that even if I still have to wear extensions they will be enhancements rather than cosmetic crutches and alot of girls do wear extensions but Ive no really seen anyone with this full piece. I actually wear something called the Kinsey system now- its light and involves a mesh being placed on the crown. Your natural hair is pulled through and then micro-light synthetic hairs are attached. Its time consuming and expensive and if I carry on having it for 4 years that would pay for a full HT!
  5. Hin Specs- Well thankyou for your detailed reply. I do not have pix as I am still wearing a piece. At this point still gathering information and surprised to learn that women are-as a rule- not good candidates for a hair transplant. Its the first ive heard of this and i hope i can be the exception to the rule! Anyhow Im excited about my appointment at a clinic in london that offers this second ,less intrusive procedure that you detail. Which of the two methods do you think is more successful on average? I cant understand why on earth anyone would have a painful scarring procedure when an apparently easier alternative is available.....? Warm Regards Zara
  6. Thankyou Sorleyboy- I will look her up- I am definitely interested in the FUE process and am going to see a consultant in 10 minutes time at a place called DHI in london. I will report back! Regards
  7. Im a 35 year old female and Ive been losing hair from my crown since the age of 18. More than 15 years on and I have been heavily reliant on either extensions or wigs- it is very fine on the crown. However with extensions (I had a weave since about 25 years old) I cannot get 'my' hair wet (because the plaits are so thick they would not dry)- this has caused numerous problems not to mention that I no longer would takea holiday to a beach location as its annoyed friends if you dont join in water-based activities all the time and dont say why because youre too embarrassed to say why. I really feel its time to do something that will permanently fix this problem. However researching this is really confusing. There seem to be 2 different types of procedure- DHI and the strip method. Which one is more successful? And are there issues particular to female baldness that I need to be aware of? Before I decide on a doctor/ consultation I want to have as much relevant information so I can really ask the right questions at the right time and make the most of what will no doubt be an expensive procedure. Are there any females out there who have had surgery and does anyone know of a good surgeon in London? Ive read some real horror stories here and elsewhere and dont want to end up with a doctor whose purely interested in his fee. Thanks, Zara. London
