So here I am, at the 3 month milestone!
At this stage my hair is improving very quickly and I really think it looks better to the eye than it does in the photos, which aren’t flattering to say the least. Of course the full density isn’t there yet, but sometimes I look in the mirror under indirect light and I feel like I’m catching a glimpse of the future of my hairline – and I like what I see.
I had been wearing a hat most of the time because, since the procedure, I’ve been in a state of mind that I no longer want to display that I have hair loss, and the front is still thin as you’d expect at month 3. However, I’ve never kept my procedure a secret from anyone and lots of people are getting a look. The feedback is all good, including from those of a younger age group. I’ll explain that:
A girl I’d noticed around town for a while now gave me her number and we’ve seen a lot of each other over the past 12 days. I knew she was young and it turns out she just turned 20 (I’m 32). She told me my hair looks great and I should just ditch the hat. What more does a guy need to hear? (I’m still self-conscious of her seeing my crazy ‘bed head’, though!) She must’ve told her friends as one of them said “so you’re hair transplant guy!” upon being introduced. I think I can live with this being my defining feature for the time being!
Yesterday I was told that my hair had got noticably thicker over the last 2 weeks. Being open about my hair transplant has been helpful as I’m getting this feedback and confirmation of what I’m seeing myself.
Stay tuned for next month!
