I'm rather pleased with how dense my hair line is at 6.5 months but comparing it to my pre-hair loss hair line sucks because it used to be so fluffy and soft, while now it feels coarse.
I had the same problem at 6-9 months after my two hair transplants, hair often first comes out coarse and very curly.

I'm almost a year after my second hair transplant and the hair has already gotten much straighter overall, now I'm mostly left with the natural waviness of my original hair.

This happens because of the scarring that that the hair transplant causes. So don't worry too much, it should get better as time goes by.

Thanks for the reassurance. What you said does strike me as a little strange because I assumed that transplanted hair would retain it's characteristics from the donor area. Since hair from the back of our heads tend to be coarser, are you perhaps saying that your transplanted hair has mimicked the characteristics of your original frontal hair instead?

Oh yes, I've been told that by a hair dresser too, your hair will keep its original characteristics, in other words, if your hair is somehow coarser in your donor area, it will keep that characteristic.

I can't say this is true for me though, my hair seems to have the same amount of waviness all over my head. But maybe this is different for people with straight hair. Here it is just the scarring which initially creates this coarseness, but as I've said, it will decrease with time.

I guess it can't be helped that my donor is so stupidly thick. I see that you've had 2 procedures for your front and mid-scalp. May I know how much of an improvement did the second procedure do for you, especially in the immediate areas behind the hair line, and whether you faced any restrictions in styling compared to before you had hair loss.

You can see a 9 month picture of my hair after my second FUE here:

FUE hair transplant 2000 + 2024 grafts - NW6 - De Reys

Of course trying to cover a NW6 area will have its restriction. Wax or gel is forbidden, it can work to an extent but in my case you'll want to improve the overall appearance of what's ultimately going to be around 5000 grafts once my third and last hair transplant (scheduled next month) will have fully grown. To do that, I have to keep my hair dry and carefully styled.

Regarding that, I'm basically stuck with one style, the Joe Tillman hair style, if you know who he is. That's one of the prices to pay to make the best out of this rare and risky transition from fully bald to a decent head of hair.

That's really great coverage in 2 procedures for a NW6, nice one! Why is wax and gel a bad idea though?



Guy in the video was a solid NW6 and had this phenomenal hair line that he kept slicked up with some product. Hard to believe he has that kind of results from 1 procedure.

Amazing result indeed.

Apparently, the guy is using pomade, we've discussed it here:

viewtopic.php?f=7&t=316

It's a product I've never tried. It sure looks good on that patient.

Hey man, great results. I'm planning to get a hair transplant in the future and I know that you've done your research, so I would appreciate your input. Since you no longer post on HairLossTalk I joined here. I'm thinking 2-2.5k grafts to restore my NW2.5-3 area, but I'm not sure it's enough. My hair line is similar to yours before the surgery.

Would you still recommend Erdogan with price, waiting times and results considered? Also, did you feel like the first transplant was enough for the hair line?

It's probably the best game in the world, much better than soccer etc even. Have you even played it?

to be honest I barely enjoy it, its incredibly toxic but also very addictive.
Riot is a shit-tier company.

In League of Legends, if you have a motherfucker in your team who trolls and makes you lose your promo games and you insult him for being a total faggot, you get banned for "being toxic" while he gets nothing.

"Muh Toxic", what a pussy ass game.

I've literally spent over a grand on accounts now. It is complete dogshit that people can't use the mute button, even in plat and diamond people are toxic as fuck and will troll your games. Last account banned after a jungle Graves came into my lane and started taking my farm for over 2 minutes and I told people to report him and went afk. Fucking joke.

Would need to see photos to know for sure. For an average NW3 ideally 3k grafts, and that's a likely quote from Erdogan. I would definitely recommend Erdogan still, particularly considering how pristine my donor looks after 6100 grafts.

10 month. I still want 1500 grafts in the frontal third and hair line but I'll do it when I have money to burn.

If I style it any normal way you don't particularly notice, but one side is less dense than the other especially going back into the midscalp and if I've just got out of bed, or my hair is wet it looks thin. The hair line is quite good but it still has gaps and some areas stronger than others. Right after a cut like the photos above it basically looks perfect in normal circumstances, but when it gets quite long or when ultra short the weaknesses become more apparent.

Theres also a small area the size of maybe too fingertips in the crown that is visibly less dense than the surrounding areas and could do with 300 or so grafts.
