FRIENDLY TIP: If you are losing your hair, here is how you can fix it

Discussion in 'General Chat' started by Edmond Dantes, Aug 27, 2008.

    if you are dedicated and passionate enough about it. With a combination of propecia, laser treatment and hair transplants, you can make any head look normal. The cost is not prohibitive, imagine spending 10k and having a full head of hair for the rest of your life.

    i started losing my hair when i was 18, but now, at 32, it looks completely normal, and i dont care about talking about it, no pics though

    thought i would start this thread to pass that information on, i am very grateful to the guy that recommended it to me, completely changed my life for the better

    let me give some background

    Started losing my hair when I was around 18, when I found out I started wearing a hat all of the time. Also got on rogaine at that time. ($50/mo.) not sure if it helped but applying it to the scalp 2 times a day was a pain in the ass. A few years later propecia came out and I got on that. My doctor was pretty cool and used to go to her office and she would give me a 6 month supply of samples to take home, that lasted for a few years, then $50/mo. then I decided that the rogaine was not helping very much and stopped using it, not much changed after I stopped. I kept on the propecia for years, then about 4 years ago I friend of mine told me he had gotten implants done and that if I cared enough, to do it. It came down to being just under 5k and I had to go in for a consultation, then come back a few weeks later to do it, that’s what it comes down to, was like no big deal at all to do.

    Btw, they had an option to finance it over 18 months, and the cost of that was about 10% (of 5k), so I told them I would give them all cash and they credited me the$500 they would have had to pay the financing company.

    Before the operation, they took you into a room, did some measurements on your head, marked some things. You can basically get 1100 to 1400 transplants from an operation. They slice a thin piece of skin from the back of your head and cut the hairs out from it, then put them into your scamp from tiny holes they have precut. Now, a transplant can be anywhere from 1 to 5-6 hairs, they generally put the single implants along the front and outer parts, and more grouped implants in the middle.

    So after the operation, you have a bandage on your head, and your face gets puffy for a few days, you look like a monster. You cant wash your hair for 2 days, then you can gently pour soapy water on your hair for 5 days, then after a week you can put your head under a nozzle and wash it, 2 weeks after the operation they take the stitches out of the back of your head, the scabs around the transplanted hairs fall out about 19 days post-op. That period of time is very uncomfortable, but about a month to 6 weeks out, your normal again

    After the operation, some of your existing hair falls out, then for the first 6 months, you have les hair than you did before. Then about 6-8 months out the hairs start to grow and you see the results a year later. Then you are very pleased

    I realized that being bald is an option and if one determined enough wanted to have a full head of hair, they could make it happen. For me, it’s a non-issue, a hairpiece was never a good option



    Btw, I know about a dozen people that have had this done, its not something many talk about. as its real hair, i dont care as much, and man, its something that changed my life a lot.

    I thought the tips would be consisting of natural home remedies, but then, thanks for the suggestions. Quite costly but then, sometimes you really have to spend a little more than the budget.

    Finasteride....a synthetic antiandrogen.

    Beware: It can cause impotence! :eek:




    If you have hair but can't get a boner, what's the point? :p

    its something that was released about 12 years ago or so that was supposed to stop hair loss, before that the only thing was rogaine, those were basically the 2 things that were out in the past 20 years that doctors saw any results in

    on someones head? did i answer that right?


    dude, thats in like 2% of cases, anything happens.



    has never been a problem for me, only a solution to help my self confidence in order to be able to get chicks

    it was a big deal for me when i started losing my hair

    well think about it this way, your shelling out that much money, but its for life, thats it, know what i mean?

    I know- a bunch of my friends take it and their wives and girlfriends don't complain.

    My guess is that it's probably something else that causes it for the people who report the sexual problems anyway.

    In my country (Argentina) hair transplantation (say it is the best treatment) is expensive.

    I am glad that you feel good
