Month 11 will be my last regular update for a while. I'll post again around month 18th or 24th for comparison.

P.S. Forgot to mention that on Months 9 and 10, I went through a shed. I didn't count but it was significant enough to elicit comment from the kiddo that I am leaving a lot of hair in the shower. It started to normalize on Month 11. I suspect that a lot of them were hair grafts going through a another phase of shed and regrowth.

Great result. Any pics of the scar?

Saw your month 7 scar pic. Feels like the scar is bit wide. Might be the fact that the scar is still healing.

MONTH 18

The attached pics are from Week 1 to Month 11 to Month 18.

From Month 11 to Month 18, I grew new hair but noticeable only to me. The biggest difference is my hair looks healthier - the whole head of hair not only the transplanted ones. It's also...bouncier.  :)  I suspect it's the effect from the laser cap after using it for 14months.

I estimate that my hair density is about  33 graft/sq cm. Not dense enough but my hair is thick and long enough to compensate. If I am being critical, there are patches that need more grafts. There's a bit of see through effect under harsh light or when it's wet. But I have went swimming and been under harsh studio lights, it just looks natural and does not give the impression of someone losing hair. I have been on intimate situations where women slide their hands on my hair and remarked how good it looked. (I cringe a bit when that happens. I have this irrational fear that the transplanted hair might  drop off.) And on times when I want the hair density of my dreams, it takes me 23 seconds to spray toppik, pat my hair, and done. 

I guess if you twist my arm, the worst thing is the strip scar behind my head. It stayed the same as my Month 7 progress. Wider than I hoped but within expectation. Certainly not noticeable on day-to-day; even on a visit to the barber.  I seldom wear my hair short and if I do, it can be done with a proper cut that the strip area is mostly unnoticeable. 

Overall, it's been great. No one knew I had HT. Everyone says I look better and can't pinpoint why.  Since I was an NW2, even when people saw my old and new pictures, my old pic just looked like someone on a bad hair day. I'll come back again in the next few years to report on my progress.

 

Note: Am on Fin .83/mg six days/wk (i.e. Proscar cut into 6 pcs),  Minox 5% once/day, Laser Cap 3x/wk,  Multi B Vitamins (100mg)

Looks fantastic! thanks for coming back. I think you're being a bit too critical on yourself regarding density. I think your density is 40+ tbh. Looks great regardless and your hairline design is fantastic. How much more sprouts (not thickening/maturing) percentage wise did you see from month 11-18?

The mircro irregularities on the hairline is top notch .. gives it a nice natural appearance .
