FORHAIR Real Story

Rediscovering My Roots: A Hair Transplant Journey in Korea

As you’ll see from this posting’s pictures, my hair grew out a bit, but in the end I shaved it off again. I didn’t mind it grown out longer, but still felt my thinner crown area showed too much. Every time I shave my head, the transplanted scalp area gets red—like it’s still sensitive—but this goes away within a day or so. Looking at my hair week to week, it really is difficult to see any difference. It has only been about 7 months since surgery, so I hope I still have a few months of growth hidden somewhere in my roots. Only time will tell!

Week 29
Hanging with my daughter at the hair salon - perm day (for her, not me...)!
Pic 1: Playing around with the boy after nap time.
Pic 2: Tried something different to get both the front and back shots. It's a little hard to see, but the crown scalp is definitely noticeable as of yet - moreso when it's grown out.
Spending time with my girl after her 1st day of Tae-kwon-do. She loves it!
A couple more candids while hanging out with the kids. They're always keeping this old(er) man busy...!

Pic 1: A top shot to show how it looks with some growth. Pretty good overall, but thinner/thicker areas do exist.
Pic 2:  A quick caffeine shot before heading home after work.
Week 30

Pic 1: "Artful" selfie.
Pic 2: "Sonful" candid.
Pic 3: "Crownful" top shot.
Pic 4: "Bellyful" birthday spread.

Some shots in and around an amateur, home "photo-shoot" that we did. Fun, fun!
A decent pic of the birthday boy... and his son.

The 1st pic was right before shaving my head.
The next 2 try to give a solid view of my follicle state.
The reflection is small (pic 3), but when my hair is short, you can see it's much harder to notice a difference in density regarding the crown area.
A rarely-seen family shot. My wife came out of hibernation.

Follicular Unit Extraction Hair Transplant is Different If You Know The Facts
