4 months…..

4 months…..

Ok, 4 month mark is finally here….. however, as excited as I was up to 3 months where I saw lots of hair pierce through my scalp on my now hated magnifying mirror, Its been status quo for about a month ?!?

The left side of my head is coming along fine, where I see the fullness taking part due to those hairs that got me all excited at the 2-3 month mark which are growing to a lenght that actually start covering my scalp.

The right side however where activity started the soonest after the operation, has yet to show any new growth for the last month !!! which is why I mention earlier that I now hate my magnifying mirror….. Its completely dead on that side… nothing, zip, nada !

So I am hoping that even if no new growth are showing through, they will come soon and start comforting my worries that if they aren’t there yet, they just might never show up….. After all, it is said, that the sleeping phase lasts between 2-4 months… So come-on gang…..We’re at 4 months, wake-up !!!

I know I have to be patient, which is not my best quality,  most likely in a few months, I’ll remember today and smile…… I hope 🙂



  1. Thank you for the update and photos! It’s definitely not easy being patient but it pays off in the end. It’s early days yet, just give the right side some time to catch up 🙂

    Hey there Steph!! I’ve been following your progress throughout your journey!! You’re hairline/coverage is looking great so far buddy!! You should be thrilled with the result, and you still have lots of growth and maturing ahead of you. I heard it grows quick from this point on. I just hit the 3 month mark last week myself, and I can echo what you said about the right side growing slower (that’s where my early growth started most also). With that said, I have talked to several people who all have said that their right side grows slower, so I don’t think we’re alone! Chin up pal!! Thanks for the update. Can’t wait to see what the next few months hold for us!! =)



  3. For month 4, your hair is looking great. Remember that although the growth begins at around 3 months, it doesn’t all come at once and it doesn’t necessarily grow evenly. You have many, many more months of growth to come. You’ll see a lot ore within the next month and even then it won’t be finished. Thanks for the update!

    I can imagine the magnifying mirror is no man’s ally. But with that said..your hair is looking very fresh! Can’t wait to see more pictures in the months to come 🙂
