Hey mate, I'd been on finasteride for a few years and I thought that perhaps it wasn't as effective as it once was, brought this up with my dermatologist and she said I could try a Finasteride +  Low Dose Dutasteride therapy, haven't noticed any side effects before or after starting.

The only evidence I could find of this treatment being used elsewhere is in this paper (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22686691).

Thanks I will look into it!

Day 25:

Unfortunately shedding started just after the 3 week mark, it has been pretty constant since then and I'm hoping it slows down soon. Although I read about how the majority of people shed the transplanted hairs, I like everyone else was hoping I was one the lucky ones who didn't!

Attached both transplant and donor pics below.

Hi,  I've been meaning to give an update just been a real busy time moving jobs/house! 

The picture attached is at 2 months and 1 week, I feel like I might be slightly lagging behind people at the same point in time but I'm keen to hear what you guys think. I've been told this month and the next the growth should start to accelerate. 

Also sometimes I notice dead skin in my recipient area and when I rub it (gently) away in the shower a hair or two may go with it. Has anyone else experienced this? Currently wash my hair 3 times a week if that info helps.

Looks very nice, but want to ask you something, hope it's not a problem. Are the hairs on your neck from the oral Minoxidil? I plan to start regimen with fin and something more, and the oral minoxidil is not a bad idea, but I am worried I will get to much hair on the rest of my body.

Hi, 

The oral minoxidil definitely led to more body hair, but I was always a pretty hairy guy (except for my head of course ;)). I'd say the difference is noticeable but not insane.

Hey guys, sorry for the slow updates. This pic is just after 3 months, feels like my progress is a bit slower compared to others around the same time frame. Please give me your thoughts, thanks!

Seems pretty normal and start expecting things to happen.

 

Your day 8 pics are insane. Mine never looked like that, as in just like native density which worries me a lot. But I'd say for you just a matter of a little bit more time.

Hi,

Oral minoxidil has been working great, I've been using it for about 1 year and my hair is definitely thicker. The Doctor said my donor hairs were very thick and I think the minoxidil helped with that. 

Researchess suggest oral minoxidil in the range 2.5/5 mg daily.
Why are you going so high? Any doctor prescribed you 10mg?

Hey guys sorry for the long delay between updates, here are some photos at the 7.5 month mark. Although I’m definitely in a better position then when I started I feel the front of the hairline is at a weaker spot then others at a similar month post op. I’ve attached some pictures with different harshness of light variations, let me know what you think.
