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?
