Your hair is looking a lot better now. It must feel good to have the styling options that are available to you now.
With the right side catching up now it will hopefully even out soon.
It looks like you`ve been in the Sun a bit. Make the most of it as it`ll rain soon enough.
How is the new haircut?

Thanks Bigmac, I bottled out with the new haircut thought I’d carry on growing it for a while, as it’s always easier to go shorter than longer lol

Stayed in a hotel at the weekend with the wife as we went to the Braintree shopping outlet and the lighting in the bathroom was pretty harsh and front on so thought I would take a picture to share with you guys.

Looking great. Did you have any swelling after your surgery? Had mine yesterday and so far no sign of any swelling

48 Weeks/336 days post HT

ok, so I’m nearly at the 1 year mark post HT. I’m pretty pleased with the result and support I’ve had from the clinic and this is why I’m glad I picked a UK clinic especially The Hair Dr and didn’t go abroad. The right side is still lacking some density in certain areas when comparing this to the left and you can tell that not all the hairs on the right have fully matured as of yet. I’m putting this down to the fact that the left side grew in a lot faster, and has therefore given the hair more time to mature. I’m hoping by the time 18 months comes both sides are showing the same density, as I know full HT results are not shown until around this time. I plan to go back to Dr Arshad at around the 14 month mark for my year consultation, check over and hopefully by then it’s evened out and he can look at it with his professional eyes and through high magnification and advise me that the HT has been a success. Which im sure it will be.

I’ve taken some photos today of what my hair looks like when I’ve just woken up, wet, dry and then styled allowing you to see the HT result in different conditions. The Styled pic just has VO5 volume mouse in which has then been blow dried. In one picture I’ve drawn a line which separates the fully matured hairs from the thinner/finer unmatured hairs.

Thanks buddy. Glad my documented journey has helped, I know how stressful it is researching a HT and picking the right Dr and clinic.

Certainly is! I spent ages looking at different clinics websites but found real stories here have been the biggest help.

Also still finding it useful as I'm coming up to 4 months now (crazy how time flies) and knowing it's normal not to have the finished look! It's good to compare with people who grow at a similar rate and to help you keep positive when you go through periods of doubt!

Yes that’s so right. Just seeing the before and after is not really helpful to people who are going through the process. It won’t be long until you start seeing the real growth start

Looking closely at your pics I think even your right side looks good. Is it a case that your hair goes right to left naturally so it's at a different angle so may look thinner to you Vs the other side where the hair is laying on top?

I know that is the case for me, I am unfortunately thinner on the side my hair goes (left to right) so makes my lack.of hair more noticeable - well hopefully just for now!!

My hair actually goes left to right. I used to have it go right to left but because the right is not as thick I changed it. I’m sure when I go to the clinic in about 3 months time (14 months post HT) The right side will have started to mirror the left for thickness and Dr Arshad and inspect it

12 month update!!

Well I can’t believe it’s been 1 whole year since my HT. I recently moved house so lighting in my picture might be slightly different but I’ve taken pictures in 3 different bathrooms to try and show the results as well as going for a new hair style. Some of the pictures have a VO5 hair product on for styling purposes. I also have my 12 month consultation next week as Sommiya and Dr Arshad FaceTimed me last week to see my progress and ask how I felt my result was. It’s still slightly thinner on the right side but Dr Arshad assured me that they will inspect it next week and see what’s happening up there and promised me they will do what’s needed to sort the thinner area out. Really happy with the support the clinic have given me as well as the assurance they want me to be 100% happy with the result. Once again this has made me very pleased I picked The Hair Dr for my HT.
