    lot of people who will try to make money from your predicament by offering myriad solutions which don t work so I ll be keeping my discussion focused on the treatments and solutions which are clinically proven to help stop hair loss and which sometimes reverse it Finally I ll discuss the hair restoration procedure I had in May 2012 to bring my hair back and I ll show you photos and tell you my thoughts at each stage of the process Hair growth is a slow process so I ll probably be writing this until May 2013 I do hope that this blog will help you come to terms with hair loss and hopefully provide you with solutions which will help Please feel free to leave your comments below as I look forward to sharing my experience Jason January 2011 Head shaved to number two all over In 2011 I visited Ziering Medical with fairly advanced hair loss and was advised to use a combination of Minoxidil and Dutasteride to thicken up my hair prior to considering surgery I had been using Minoxidil for seven years but the effects weren t as good as they were This is what it looked like shaved down to 6mm all over May 2012 Increased hair density after using both Dutasteride and Minoxidil for 18 months After 18 months you can see that my hair had thickened up considerably and I was a better candidate for restorative hair surgery Author Jason Shankey Posted on July 17 2012 July 17 2012 Categories Jason Shankey Expert Tags hair transplant Post navigation Previous Previous post The Apprentice Next Next post My Hair Transplant 2 Tags air back Christmas climate cold crack dragons den dryness environment expert film hair haircut hair loss hair transplant help ingrown hairs

    and science and I really wanted to understand the tools and techniques the team were using to do the procedure I asked Dr Krishnan how he s able to harvest my follicles one by one and he described and showed me the tools that he uses Grafts being inserted into the scar line at the back of my scalp Also in the photograph you can see the 0 9mm graft sites where the follicles have been taken from While some hair transplant companies use older technology such as sharp punches Ziering Medical use a special tool called a 0 9mm blunt punch This more expensive extraction tool causes much less damage to the hair muscle and sebaceous glands of the hair follicle resulting in a much higher proportion of the grafts growing successfully in the transplanted area Coupled with state of the art modern preserving solutions rather than just saline which keep your grafts healthy whilst they re being prepared for transplantation it s these unique refinements which give Ziering Medical better results with their transplants The blunt punch is exactly the right size to remove donor hair follicles one by one whereupon they are transferred to the team of technicians who are working beside the surgeon This team use highly powerful microscopes to examine each follicle to reshape it if necessary and to sort them into 1 s 2 s and 3 s This is where it gets really interesting The follicles in our scalp don t just sprout one hair there can be 1 2 3 or sometimes 4 hairs per follicle This anomaly allows the surgeon to use some artistic license when transplanting your hair A good surgeon will use follicles with one and two hairs to work on finer aspects of your transplant such as your hairline or scar revision whilst the follicles with three or four hairs are used to thicken up larger areas such as the crown This is why everyone remarks about my first hair transplant It looks so natural because of the skill of the surgeon placing the right follicles in the right positions and at the right angles too My hair follicles being graded into 1 2 or 3 follicular units Dan who is one of the technicians allowed me to take a look through the microscope where he had laid out follicles with 1 2 and 3 hairs side by side It really was fascinating to see and to understand how Dr Krishnan was going to place them in just the right places to get the most effective and natural result My former scar was fixed by transplanting hair grafts into the scar line We had a few breaks throughout the day so everyone could remain energised throughout the procedure and we eventually finished around 7PM In the end Dr Krishnan transplanted 2100 follicles from the back of my scalp into my thinning crown and former scar We had a chat after the procedure where I was advised of some do s and don ts Don t drink alcohol for a week don t take aspirin or any type of blood thinners Don t scrub your hair as normal for at least a week don t get your blood pressure up high through exercise don t bend over to lift something without bending your knees etc I take Dutasteride medication to prevent further hair loss Do rinse your hair by pouring a cup of warm water mixed with a special type of shampoo without scrubbing Do use the special sprays on my scalp every two hours to help it heal Do take the tablets given to me which were 3 days of steroids five days of painkillers and 5 days of antibiotics to prevent infection I was also advised to keep taking my hair loss medication Avodart Dutasteride I ve been taking this for four years and it stops me from losing any more of my non transplanted hair by keeping my hair roots really thick and healthy as was evidenced under the microscope These all made sense of course A hair transplant is a good investment so you will definitely want to give it the best chance of achieving the best results After that I went back to my Hotel in Bromsgrove then went out for some dinner I felt great Sleeping was a bit uncomfortable on the first night but quickly got back to normal It s completely back to normal now on day 5 I would advise you to put a towel on your pillow the first night as there can be a bit of blood left on the pillowcase otherwise Although I d flown into Birmingham for my operation the night before the day following the procedure I had a 340 mile drive from Nuneaton to Cairnryan as I had picked up a car while I was over The drive was enjoyable as it was a relaxing six hour journey with no pressure whatsoever on my scalp and I got to know my new car too I got back to Belfast at 10PM and was feeling ecstatic The feeling you get after a hair transplant is unbelievable There s the massive relief at no longer being bald and the joy and expectation that you ll look younger and fresher in just six months time The reason I say six months time is that the hair follicles undergo some stress during the operation Because they re taken from one area sorted stored in solution then re transplanted to a new location this causes each follicle to temporarily stop growing its hair The follicles then go into a resting stage for around 3 months before growing new hair Your new hair becomes evident around months four and five with definite results by month six The finished result is fully visible by months twelve to eighteen Right now and for the next week or so the hairs are still intact in the follicles so I can see and feel
