Hey all, so I've been reading a pretty good bit on these forums and still have some questions for guys who possibly have some experience with systems that they'd like to share with me. I'm basically looking for the best option to start out with hair systems. I've seen dozens of videos and read numerous posts about guys ordering their hair system and doing it all themselves at home, but I do not feel comfortable starting out that way. I found a couple of places in my city that install, cut, and style hair systems but I honestly do not know if they are any good.
Is this the best way to start, by going to a business who does everything inside their office?
Is tape better than glue?
Skin or Lace?
what are some good suppliers of hair system and accessories online?
I sweat a lot and live in a very humid area, especially in summer. Will this be a challenge?
So I just joined this place. I’ve researched a bunch of hair loss options from hair transplant FUE, FUT, neograft, Artas, I have even gone to a couple clinics to meet with the doctors.
I was on minoxidal 5% for about 13 years after starting at 19 or so. I started using it well before I lost any hair as a preventative because my dad had thin hair and I figured it was only a matter of time. I only applied once a day at night. I’ve noticed that my hair has gotten worst over the last few years. A place called Harklinikken is near me so I went to check them out in my quest for a new treatment. I met with Lars, who is the founder, of this place. Apparently he started in Denmark and he brought it here some time ago. He isn’t a doctor but has a biochemistry background and he doesn’t disclose any ingredients because of competition but he claims it’s all natural ingredients (not sure what that means).
Anyway, he has a system where you apply this extract twice within 20 minutes every day. A little bit of a pain in the a**, but not so bad that I wouldn’t try it. When I met with him he asked me to get off the minoxidil for 4 months before starting so I did. My hair loss got worst fast. This was the first time I ever saw what my hair really was without anything. My crown really thinned. Anyway, I went back to Lars a couple weeks ago and started using their system after this 4 month baseline period. I’ve been on it for 2 weeks and so far my hair loss looks to have gotten worst. Shedding like crazy. Apparently this can happen as weak hairs fallout and then it’s suppose to grow like a chia pet.
I plan on trying it for 4 months and if it doesn’t work I’ll stop. It cost $95 a month. You have to use their shampoo and styling products which makes this kinda expensive. Fortunately I have short hair so I don’t need a lot of products. However the extract is that $95 a month I mentioned and that’s if you pick it up at the clinic, otherwise they charge for shipping and it’s over $100 a month. Sooo... I wanna make a decision within 4 months so I don’t spend all this money when FUE may just give better results in the long run and will probably be more economical. The first appointment was nearly $300 because of the products. Shampoo is like $60 or something and the hair paste is like $45 but it’s better to use all the products in the system is their mantra.
Anyway, anyone else try this system? From looks of it, I may be the first in this place. I’ve heard good things but $100 a month plus having to by their shampoo and styling stuff is pricey and would be more economical hair transplant after like 8 years or something.
Anyway, we shall see....
Hi guys! I am 25 year old from Thane (India). I have been balding since I was 17. As of now I am at stage V of Male Pattern Baldness. Actually I was considering to go for non-surgical hair replacement (wig / rug / hairpiece / hair system etc. whatever you want to call it), I did a lot of research & went to many places for it, but at the end I came to know that there is no hairpiece available in the market which will give you 100% natural hairline. When it comes to sides, top & back, most of the hair systems will do their job in perfectly. So, I think hair transplant at front + wig behind it would solve the problem.
Would like to hear from people who have undergone hair transplant / used hairpiece / tried any other kind of solution.
Would also like to make new friends or better create a group of people suffering from hair loss problem, specially guys of my age who belong to Mumbai & nearby localities like Navi Mumbai, Thane, Kalyan-Dombilvli etc.
Can anyone tell me if there is anyway to prevent the glue on the back of my system from melting (faster)?
I live in Miami, Fl which is usually warm climate, and with blowing drying or wearing hats the glue on the back tends to melt sooner than I want. Does anyone have any tips or advice on how to keep the glue from melting fast?
