My Hair Loss StoryI began losing my hair at the age of 22. To say I was shocked is an understatement. Nobody in my family had any signs of hair loss at my age. My father is 70 and only has slight recession in his temple points and a little thinning on his crown but that’s it. So yeah, it was very hard to deal with. After a while, I accepted my bald headed fate. I did the propecia and minox thing for a while. I actually had good results but stopped taking it because I couldn't afford propecia and didn't know about the option of taking proscar. Boy do I regret not finding out sooner. But hey everything happens for a reason. As for getting a procedure, while I always had it in the back of my mind that one day I may get in that chair for a procedure, I never really thought I actually would. The reason is (besides hating the thought of being cut open) is that I didn't really think that I good get a good result from a transplant. I saw the ads for Bosley and MHR, but they seemed too "infomercial". Even some of their best results didn't impress me too much. So I marched on thinking that my follicularly challenged days would continue forever and didn't give much though to having a procedure for quite some time. <br />
---Reconsidering a transplant--- Fast forward a few years. I was 26, and not in the happiest state of my life, and the hair loss didn't really help with things. Every time I would look in the mirror, I couldn't connect with the person staring back at me. The reflection I saw looked about 10 years older than I felt. I decided to start looking back into transplants and decided to give it a much more serious look than I had before. Also, knowing that I was a better candidate for a transplant at 26 than it had been when I was 22 was another reason I decided to start looking into the procedure again. I was fortunate enough to run into Jotronic's blog, as well as Bobman's and London_lad's blog (London_lad's blog happens to be on another site). I was seriously blown away by their results. These guys initially had hair loss worse than I did. To see the transformation that these guys had was just awe inspiring. I couldn't believe that I didn't find their stories the first time around, but I guess I wasn't doing the required research or the blogs weren't available :) After seeing their results, I knew that I could very well indeed have a great result from a hair transplant from H&W.

Do your research. Picking a doctor is one of the most important decisions you will ever make in your life so treat the decision with the cautioness and respect as you would in any other important decision.
