Yes happier is an understatement!! I met up with some old friends last weekend. Last time I met up with them on a stag party one friend mentioned how thin and balding I was (before my HT) which really put me on a downer for the whole stag party. This weekend he didn’t mention anything about my hair and none of them know I have had a HT. I couldn’t stop looking at all their hairlines and crowns and they were all thinning and showing signs of hair loss. Im glad im not in that boat anymore. They say money can’t buy you happiness but it can buy you a decent HT and that’s the same thing in my opinion lol

Haha nice! It is weird how people don't notice considering a HT makes such a huge difference. I guess if they are not worried about hair then they probably never think/look at other people's

Your hair is looking good. Getting your haircut and having confidence is great. You look much happier now. The guy who pointed out your thinning hair before and now thinning himself is a common theme.
All the best to you.

11 Month Up date

Hair is coming on really well now and I’ve taken some pictures under harsh bathroom lighting. My donor was shaved to a 3 both back and sides and I’ve taken picture with wet hair, dry hair and styled hair.
My right temple is thinner than the left but I can feel little hairs there growing so hopefully it will start filling in to match the left side. I also think that the right side hairs have not fully matured like the left side has yet as some are still wiry and not straight like the left. If you look and my HT pictures from the beginning my left side has always been ahead with growth so I feel I still have time for the right side to catch up.
I can also feel little hairs coming into the crown area so hopefully more density there as well.

At 11 months im very happy with how my hair has progress and I’m defo classing myself as a slow grower. I think im still going to get a little more improvement as the hair matured through to month 18 post HT

Nice okay thanks. I have the same size but the box says 2 pills twice a day, seems too excessive!!

Looking good, you’re getting there slowly but surely. It’s good to hear you can still feel new growth poppping through.
Your donor looks in very good condition.
It’s a massive change when compared to where you started.

Thank you Bigmac, yes it’s coming on nicely. Hopefully with some more months of maturing it will become even thicker. I still have quite a few wiry hairs especially at the front on the right side so hopefully these will straighten up and thicken.

I bet you feel the confidence boost now. Hopefully, the wiry hairs will take on their natural characteristics soon.

328 day post HT update.

Decided to change my hair style up again as I’m off to my barber tomorrow for a trim, so I’m debating on what cut/style to go for this time.

Thought I’d take some pics and add them to my journey, It’s still improving by thickening up every day which is good and I’m sure my right side is starting to catch up with the left as the hairs are becoming darker. They are still wiry though and not as straight as the left side plus they feel like baby hair very soft, but hopefully time will tell as they mature more.

Looking loads better @Baldingman23
Hard to tell by the low lighting in the pics, but looks to have thickened up nicely.

I'm currently at 6 months.

when did you notice the most difference?
And when did new hairs stop popping through?

Thanks @My2021story!! I’d say I noticed the biggest improvement around the 9-10 month mark. On my crown I can still feel some small stubbly hairs and on my right side a few stubbly hairs there too. When I wake up in the morning the hairs on the right side have a very wispy, thin texture unlike the left which seem to have developed the normal characteristics of hair. But it was the left side that grew in a lot quicker than the right from the start. So again as it all matures they hopefully should end up matching each other in texture and characteristics.
