Seeing growth at 2 months could be the new transplants or existing native hair popping through. In your pictures, I can see the shape of your hairline which is a good indicator of early growth. There is a little bit of redness left which is nothing of concern.
I think you`ll be good to go for the pubs opening up.
Thanks for the update.

Hey Everyone!

It has now been 3 months since the HT....time flies.

I am in the weird phase where everything has healed, there is no shedding and it is just a case of waiting for growth whilst looking ugly :ROFLMAO:

There are definitely new hairs growing but they are still short and too spaced out to make a real difference. It is exciting to see and feel them and it shows the very first signs of growth.

I do have to reality check myself that it's only 3 months. 4/5 months is when I am expecting to see the first real growth, just in time for summer.

In the pics I have attached, 2 are close up of the hairline, you can just about see some of the new hairs.

Thanks for following :)

Starting to take shape - bet you can't wait for the next few months for the growth to kick in!

Hi Alex. 4.5 - 6 months is a safe bet to see growth. Anything around 3 months is a bonus.
Right now you`re in the ugly duckling stage where the growth is just starting to show.
You do have enough hair there if you wanted to experiment with hair fibres. Sprinkle some on and have instant hair.
Thanks for the update.

Exciting stage now Alex! Would be interesting to see how you’d look with fibres like BM says

I do have some Fibres but I never use them. They seem quite messy and obvious unless you spend hours touching it up!

I remember being in the local bakery about a year ago and the guy in front of me had fibres in, it looked very obvious. There must be a knack of putting them in, but to be honest I couldn’t be bothered with messing about with them all the time

I think from a distance with small amounts it looks ok but up close it can be obvious. I used to work with a guy who out loads in and was very noticeable - sure there is a skill to getting it right!

Despite being in the ugly duckling phase I'm not really that self conscious about how it looks because I know it's going to get better. I rarely go out with a hat on and have met loads of friends/family and just got on with it.

Your only just at the very start of the growth phase, unless your one of the rare few then your unlikely to see much growth at this stage....gotta say I like the hairline shape it suits you and I'm sure when things really kick in over months 5-7 you will be in a good place dude.

Thanks for sharing your journey and recent updates.

Hello everyone :)

4 months post HT!

I have noticed a huge amount of progress between months 3 and 4 which took me by surprise as I was not expecting anything until at least 4+ months in.

I am noticing it the most in my receding areas and hairline, new hairs are slowly sprouting and growing which is showcasing my new hairline nicely.

One side of the hairline is definitely growing faster than the other which worries me but I understand it is a waiting game. Hopefully, by 12 months both sides will have grown equally.

I am very happy with what is happening so far and I can't wait for more growth!

Thanks man, the difference is crazy and only 4 months in! How was your progress around the 4 month mark?
It’s great when you can see progress is happening. The waiting game can sometimes be very hard going. My growth was pretty slow to be honest. The biggest difference I noticed was around month 9/10. Im Month 11 this Saturday and will be posting some pics.
