Capelli11's - Profile page 1-Month
Well today is officially 1 month! I am also officially in the ugly
duckling stage as you can tell from my pics! Here are my updates:
Rogaine: I am on about week 2 of my Rogaine Foam experience
and so far so good. It is a little annoying to have to put it on twice a
day but having short hair allows application to be easy and takes about
5 minutes each time.
Shedding: I have been shedding a ton lately especially since
applying Rogaine in that I massage my hair during application and a ton
of hairs are all over my hands and sink…but I expected this so I wasn’t
nervous about it.
Redness: I am not too red but it appears to be most red on my
right side corner going to my middle of my hairline only. The left side
has some shadow of where my implanted hairline was but the center of my
hairline doesn’t really show any redness. My temple points are still a
little red at this point.
Tightness/Numbness: I am not nearly as tight as I was even a
week ago…I can clearly see a great difference in that I can turn my head
and lift it up and down without feeling that pulling/tight sensation
which is nice. My numbness has also went down but I still have some
throughout the top of my head and mainly still right above my scar area
but nothing too major or concerning.
Scar: In regards to healing it looks and feels pretty good. It
appears that I may have some minor shockloss especially on my right side
where the scar isn’t really covered too well by my hair as it appears
to be some above and below the line. It also appears that my hair isn’t
growing downward (growing to the right) so that it seems to be long
enough but doesn’t fall down to cover the scar. I gather it will fall
down eventually once it gets longer. My left side however is growing
downward so it seems to be covering the scar somewhat but still see some
lack of growth above and below it so it is still somewhat visible. The
back however is where my hair grows the fastest and thickest so the
scar looks really great back there and has a lot better coverage.
Overall: I am trying to keep positive as I know this is the time
where it is the hardest especially when I see pictures and realize that
I look pretty bad. My hair’s growth stages seems to be different
throughout my head as the back grows nicely but the sides are slow to
catch up…it has pretty much always been that way but I never buzzed it
so low to visually notice it this much. The hair in my front where I
had some decent hair originally doesn’t seem to be growing that quickly
either perhaps from some shockloss but I really hope it all grows evenly
when it is all said and done! I am going to try to stay positive and
not worry about my hair for the month hoping that is grows to a point
where it at least nicely covers the scar…I gather I will have to
trim/shave it down again to keep it even with the lack of growth in my
recipient site…fun fun! Lol.
