Week 20 - Five month mark

The progress since week 16 to 20 seems to have come from nowhere, I’ve noticed a big difference in the growth of my transplanted area and the density seems to have appeared. After five months I am happy so far with the progress as is Dr Cinik’s clinic and I look forward to what the 12 month mark will show.

The daily ritual of medication contiinues as does using fractioned coconut oil twice weekly on my hair

Well the six month mark has arrived and so far I am very happy with the results. At the very beginning I thought to myself this will take an age to see progress but in fairness the time has passed very quickly! 

My routine is still the same, meds everyday, couple of times a week I use fractioned coconut oil and I’m probably getting my haircut (back/sides) once a month to keep things tidy, but the best part is people have said it makes me look 10 years younger which is fantastic because I always felt without hair I looked ten years older than I actually was! 

My learnings so far at what I call the half way mark, first and foremost be patient, this is a marathon not a sprint, I’m certainly not finished yet, do exactly as your doctor tells you at the very beginning and get into a routine, take the meds not just for a couple of weeks but create the habit of taking as advised and finally track the progress, photos weekly it’s amazing at how things can change in seven days! 

Finally I wanted to show my pics prior to my procedure and as I am today, I’m delighted at this stage with the work Dr Cinik and his team have done and look forward to seeing how the next six months turn out before I head back for HT2

This is so good it almost looks like a joke. 

What was your donor capacity?

Seven month mark and all going well, I feel that little has changed over the last four weeks but the clinic are happy so far and I’m looking forward to around the nine month mark as I hear a lot that things start to fill out more. 

During this month I’ve had a haircut, I tend to go for a two on the sides and back and a tiny bit of the ends (if any)

So I’ve purposely left the updates for a couple of months as I felt there was little to update on but now the ten month mark has arrived and so far I’m happy with the results. Over the last couple of months I feel the density has improved, I’ve had a couple of hair cuts, normally once a month as I like the back and sides short but in general I have had no issues at all. I continue to take medication daily as advised by Dr Cinik and I am now in the process of discussing my second transplant with them for hopefully December

The plan for transplant number 2 will be to concentrate on the mid to crown area of my head for overall coverage.
