Capelli11's - Profile page 3 MonthsPosted :3/6/2012
Well I am at the 3 month mark and for the most part am out of the ugly duckling stages thankfully!
Hairline: I can def see some hairs growing in especially at the corners
of the hairline but they are sparse at the moment...there is still a
lot of space in between each grown hair as I gather this is normal and
as the months continue hairs will grown in between them...any comments
are appreciated on this based on your experience. It is a nice feeling
to actually see your hair growing instead of seeing it fall out...def a
better feeling! So my hairline is taking a little shape but I gather
come month 4 and probably closer to month 5 is when I will really start
seeing some growth...again comments are appreciated on this. I am at
the point now basically where I was prior to my HT...pretty much all my
original hair has grown back and now mixed with the sporadic new hairs
makes it look a little bit better. Applying Toppik (which I do only for
special events and also interviews) is great because I don't have to
use as much and it really makes my hair actually look amazing compared
to how it looked originally with Toppik...mainly bc i can now use those
new hairs as my hairline and it doesn't look fake as before i didn't
have them to apply toppik to.
Scar: I had a little shock loss on each side of my scar but never
anything crazy that couldn't be covered up with some Toppik if/when I
needed it. As you can see in my pic, the scar is clearly not visible
esp at the length it is at now which is prob like a 5 clip give or
take. I would like to cut it with a 4 but a few weeks ago when i cut it
with a 4 the scar was noticeable somewhat but I attribute this to some
shock loss that will hopefully subside in the upcoming months.
Tightness: All of my tightness has subsided for the most part and there
is just some numbness here and there mainly around the scar area but
nothing that I can't tolerate and/or bothers me.
Working out: I started working out again a week after my 2nd month
going slowly at first but now at month 3 I am at a good workout pace
doing about 70 percent of what I used to...as I am trying to be a tad on
the conservative side when it comes to certain exercises. It was def
nice to get back to the gym and start getting back to how I was prior to
Propecia/Rogaine: I have been on Propecia now for about 10 months and
up until around say 7-8 months I didn't feel like it was doing much but I
would say in the last month or so I have noticed my crown thickening
and not seeing a little thinness anymore in the mirror which amazed
me...plus loosing less hair in the sink too...and my hair feel overall
healthier and fuller. Also I started Rogaine Foam 3 weeks after my HT
so been on it for around over 2 months and I don't mind applying it plus
I am thinking maybe this is the reason why my crown looks better?
Perhaps the synergy bt Prop and Rogaine. I actually like the way my
hair looks and feels after I apply the foam as it acts kind of as a
mousse and my hair feels and looks thicker...so i don't mind it anymore I
actually prefer that look! lol.
Scar is not noticeable
Crown looks great which I gather Propecia and Rogaine have thickened up!
