Have u asked erdogan how much experience he has with Afro textured hair? Going from memory I’ve only seen one case of his published online on Afro hair. As you may already know, Afro textured hair typically has a strong curl underneath the skin which makes it difficult to extract with fue. Not trying to scare you or anything but just saying it’s best to be cautious.

I have forwarded 12 photos of my hair from different angles to asmed and they didnt say much. In fact they were very reassuring so I guess it's not worth stressing about it but thanks for the comment mate and I will be cautious

For those unaware of what a hairline can do to a man's appearance. Just wow.

And somebody's been hitting the gym too. Looking good, bro. :D

@BjornBorg Thank you mate, I really appreciate the compliment. The hairline alone has made a major difference in framing my face. In that photo I haven’t even done anything to my hair, literally washed and dried it. 

Lol I can go one better and upload a photo from my time at the clinic. I look like one of those wanted faces from crime watch! And another photo just over 5months into my journey.

I thought I would share a couple more photos as today was the first time I’ve used hair product in my hair since my procedure. My brilliant co-ordinator said It wouldn’t do any harm trying products as I was instructed to wait until 6 months. 

Any thoughts appreciated as always. I will try a couple of styles in time to see which works best for my hair.

Looks great buddy, fibers look nicely blended in in the last photo outdoors.

Thank you, I applied 4 sprays of toppik into the hairline. It helps make the hairline a little darker which I like too.

6 month update 

I reach the 6 month mark in two days and I’m over the moon with the progress so far. If I’m being totally honest I would have happily taken todays result as it stands as a final result based on my level of hair loss 6 months ago sitting in the Asmed clinic. 

There are some areas behind the hairline which look a little sparse still, so I’m hoping the hair maturation process will helps this. But ultimately once my hair is washed and styled I’m delighted with how it looks. 

I’ve attached a photo prior to surgery and have tried to take 6 photos at a similar angle to help compare. There is also a couple of photos in direct sunlight too. 

Any thoughts or feedback appreciated as always.

It’s a high skin fade, starts from a zero but they use a couple of different shavers to make it literally bald! To be fair no one has even mentioned anything about the scarring to me and if it was that noticeable I’m sure someone would have picked up on it by now

Here’s another set of photos where I’ve tried to expose the hairline more through styling, recommended by my co-ordinator.

Are those pics with toppik?

Yeah in the initial hairline, makes it look stronger and thicker

I think you should not put topik in the first 3/4 inch.  It looks a little too stark and unconvincing.  Natural hair is not that much of a "wall."

I think your hair looks great in the styled pictures. If you could post pictures without the use of toppix that would be great too
