My Hair Loss StoryStarted losing my hair in early 20's. No big deal because my hair was so thick I was glad to thin it out a little. That phase didn't last for too long and soon it was becoming a big deal. The vast majority of my hair loss was right in the front, which was very distressing. Did not like the way this looked at all!
How has my hair loss affected me?
<p>Wears on confidence.</p>
What hair loss treatments have worked best for me?
<p>Took Rogaine religously and it seemed to help some, but obviously, not nearly enough.</p> <p>Propecia - take 1/2 doses, not sure how much it helps.</p>
Am I happy with my hair transplant experience and the results?
Yes. It's not perfect but considering how low I was feeling about my hair/appearance, perfection isn't necessary. It's "good" and that is light years ahead of where I was. I could have waited forever for the "perfect" fix - the pill or ointment or shot that re-stimulates dormant follicles and gives you a perfect head of hair.... Life is too short to be throwing away years, waiting for something that might never happen.
What hair loss treatments would I recommend?
If you have frontal loss like I did, I think your only solution is a transplant..... or a rug.... or acceptance.... I'm pretty happy with the transplant.
How has hair restoration surgery changed my life?
Changed everything about the way I view myself. I had almost forgotten what confidence in my physical appearance felt like.
My general advice and suggestions.
Do your research. Take action. Don't over-do the hairline.
