Quick mid-month update, this is 4.5 months after the HT.

The first pic is a few months before the surgery and the other two pics are today. One with my hair pushed up and the other with it pushed down.

The hairline is taking shape, however, there is a long way to go, especially on the left-hand side.

You can see it is definitely thicker than before though :)

Your hairline is coming in nicely - must be exciting to see it form and starting to get used to the new look with it framing your face!

Thanks for sharing your journey Alex with an absolutely fantastic post that has given me hope that life with hair can return. I intend to create my own post detailing the journey I will be going on once I have chosen a clinic.

By the way your new hair looks great (y)(y)(y)

Thanks again for the post.

Hi Alex, the hairline is taking shape with added density and the temple corners filling in. You must be happy with how it`s progressing.

Hello Everyone.

Yesterday marked my 5 month anniversary since the HT.

In terms of my routine, I still exercise (so I sweat from my scalp) around 4/5 times a week. I have been doing this for the last 4 months and I do believe it helps in some way.

I have also stopped taking Finasteride completely because I could feel side effects. I now take 1 Saw Palmetto tablet each morning alongside a Biotin tablet.

My left temple is still way behind my right temple in terms of growth which is frustrating but hopefully, it evens out eventually.

I am definitely happy with the growth so far and pray it continues :)

I forgot to add one with my hair sticking up. You can still through the hairline so lots more density needed.

In normal light you can't really tell, it is more when there is direct light.

Coming on well Alex. Both my sides are still not even but my right seems to be slowly catching up.

Really impressive early growth, mate! Here's to more of it! And I like the side-by-side photos - really good snap shot of how far you've come :).

Regards,
Matt

Hi All,

6 months post HT!

I am really happy with how it is progressing so far.

The left temple is still quite a way behind the right temple in terms of growth but it's just a waiting game.

I have also started to notice that the density is slowly starting to come through in the mid scalp. You can see much less of my scalp than say, 1 or 2 months ago.

I realised I have never spoken about my Doner area so I have included some pictures to show what it looks like now.

I used Aloe Vera gel on the Doner area from around 3/4 weeks after the HT to help it heal and so far, I have not had any issues with the re-growth or patchy areas.

It is however still a bit sensitive and itchy at times!

Thanks for reading.

That's looks fantastic for 6 months. I'm 1 month in with the same Dr and would be over the moon with a result like that. Thanks for the update

Good luck RN9, month 0-4 are a grind for sure. Your hair won't look pretty but just hang on in there.
