FORHAIR Real Story

Rediscovering My Roots: A Hair Transplant Journey in Korea

 The second week after surgery was MUCH more comfortable than the first. I slept much better, felt little to no pain, and was able to start exercising again (in moderation). Honestly, for me, the most difficult part has been rejecting my natural instinct to touch my hair, scratch an itch, etc. I must note that you WILL want to itch your head. If you feel dirty or itchy after just 1 or 2 days without washing your hair, imagine 14! You should mentally prepare yourself for the dirtiness that will ensue (and build up) during this time. I will post a close-up pic showing my unwashed hairline to give a better idea. All that said, the crucial, first 2 weeks are over and I’m happy and proud to say that I have succeeded in following all post-op directions thus far. Although the final outcome won’t be known for many months to come, I’m hoping my hard work and dedication—plus the hair loss prevention medication I’m taking—will join forces for some great results. My roots have been (re)introduced to their new home. Let’s hope they truly take root and settle in.

Week 2: Post-surgery continued: The Crucial Days

Day 10
After a short hiatus due to surgery and general business, I made it back up to my "man cave" - the rooftop patio- to grill some burgers and hotdogs for my family. I spent time with the kiddies and feeling the wind blow through my (relocated) hair...ok, not really, there was no wind that day, but it sounds nice!
Day 11

Back to the job, but this time with no hat. Did I mention I wore a hat the first week of work? Anyway, I felt my head looked normal enough that my students wouldn't be uncomfortable or grossed out, and I was right.

Just hanging out with the kids after getting home from work. Most of the time I don't even think about my head - especially when I'm with these two.

Day 12
Putting out head together for some textual stimulation.
Day 13
I love walking and talking with this girl. She occasionally asks me how I'm doing with my hair, and if it hurts - so weet.

I love keeping in shape and was itching (not funny, but punny) to get back in the gym. I didn't notice any real problem or have concerns about my hair, however, I did feel a little sensation in the transplanted area now and then. It felt like it was just extra sensitive, but it wasn't painful.

Day 14
Relaxing with a cold beverage to reward myself for 2 weeks of following the rules and being extra careful with my new do. Remember, you can't drink or smoke for the first 2 weeks after surgery. I'm not sure of all the details, but I believe it can negatively affect your body's circulation, which in turn can affect the grafts's ability to anchor securely in your scalp. Personally, thinking about my head itchiness over the last several days, I wouldn't want to drink simply because I may "forget" and start scratching if I allowed some other stimulant to possibly affect my decision-making processes or perpections!
