dude I posted pics before, right after and 6 months after
I'll post pics at 7 month mark, you'll see it's basically no difference in the midscalp and crown. So frustrating. The hairline is huge difference but I barely cared about that. With my super curly hair, I can make a NW3 hairline look like a 1.5
Thanks for the link GrowingHair. It doesn't hurt to go for a follow since apparently you are close enough. I hope it did go well.
Things are still going well: treating the scar and hiding the missing hair until they grow back. I don't like seeing the shockloss I mentioned at the scar, but I know it's temporary.
