Dr Ron Shapiro has literature on laser caps that states he believes do make improvements for some.
Yea, I`m sorted and happy now. Finasteride is my saviour too.

Day 11, still cleaning up well. I'm starting to gently remove skin, and am experiencing shedding, albeit 4 hairs....I feel a bit concerned today, i went out last night to see friends, and had a couple beers, which ended up with a few more than I'd have liked, could this damage the hair? Or will it kill it?

Drinking won`t do any harm. Alcohol is avoided before and straight after surgery as it thins the blood which could cause popping of the grafts before they are securely in place. Your grafts are well anchored now.

Thinking of giving the fibers a go today as most of the skin has come off now, that being said, I'm a little nervous its to early yet ?

I was using it 10 days post op without any issues. Some will say it blocks the pores, as long as you`re not caking it on and wash it out at night there is no problem using it.

Dr. Parsa Mohebi says after 5 days it’s ok to use fibers. Dr. Bernstein say 5-7 days is ok.

Quote from Dr. Bernstein

A: Yes, but I would wait at least 5 to 7 days after the hair restoration procedure before applying Toppik, Couvre, Derm Match or other cosmetic camouflage products to the transplanted area. For the first 9 days after hair transplants, the cosmetic should be washed out very gently so as not to dislodge the grafts. At 10 days following the hair restoration, the grafts are permanently in place, so you may shampoo as vigorously as you would normally do when showering.

Waiting 14 days is not necessary. Top doctors know what they’re talking about. people Who say wait 14 days or longer are being overly cautious or don’t have a clue what they’re talking about. Ask them what harm can it cause if you use it after one week. Stumped!

Day 12, today I gave my head a proper clean, i was gentle and sure not to catch any hairs in my nails etc, but I think nearly 95% of the skin has come off now, I am actually amazed at how much the new hair has grown so far ! Shame it'll all fall out. I do however have a question, the back portion of the transplant doenst seem to have grown as much as the front section ? Is this normal? It was implanted the day before the front was ...

You will be fine exercising now. If running outside keep your head covered from the sun.

I’d wear a loose ball cap or a bandana just to prevent the scalp sweating so much. Sweating won’t harm the grafts though but doctors usually give advice saying let the scalp breathe.

Day 13 ....First day back on exercise... feel great to be able to workout again,, very strange feeling in the recipient area, like tingling .... I presume this Is due to the extra blood flow? And obviously my head isn't used to having the feeling of hair.. I this cause for concern ? Or just normal

Day 13... just got back from workout ... no problems, head tingled a little and my scalp is a little redder than it was before I left.... yes I did wear a hat, it will probably be the increased blood flow ....I'm sure it'll go down by tonight.
