My Hair Loss Story

started losing my hair at 16 with temple recessions being the first obvious signs. over the years, it gradually developed.

By the age of 20 (now), my classification was as seen in the classification image. basically, even though i wasn't bald, the area was defined and it was clear as to what type of baldness i was going into.

How has my hair loss affected me?

to a fair extent considering the demands of society nowadays and also the fact that my type of hair loss is not expected at my age

What hair loss treatments have worked best for me?

well nothing in special but I'm hoping that the hair transplant and Propecia show some good effect.

Am I happy with my hair transplant experience and the results?

so far so good!

What hair loss treatments would I recommend?

obviously its best to start small and build up. in this, hair transplantation should always be the last option whilst non-surgical treatments should be given a shot first.

i used the same principle. been patient for 4 years!!

How has hair restoration surgery changed my life?

too early to comment but will modify

My general advice and suggestions.

be patient! losing hair could be drastic but thats where you have to lay down all the possible options and approach them at a strategic angle!
