  1. The future

    A press release on the 10th of march 2011 from one of the big players in the feild of hair restoration stated that hair cloning will be available to the public in spring 2012:)
  2. A True and Honest Story

    Damien. Good post and very well formulated. I am now strongly going against the idea of treatment. I’ve decided to give it a couple of days just to be sure, before I cancel my consultation. I have had two transplants and never been happy with them. They cost a total of 12000 pounds in all, and they have never delivered what was promised in the glossy brochures. I wore a system and hated it so much I had it removed after only a year. What His (in my opinion) is offering is not perfect, as the only perfect solution is a full healthy head of One’s own hair. But it is in my opinion a very realistic viable alternative which could give a hair loss sufferer a stylish cut and complete freedom to live life. If this had been available several years ago I would never have entertained the other treatments. I’m married now with a little one and have just enough hair to frame my face. I can therefore wait a few years until a cure hits the market. Maybe I won’t care anymore when it comes, who knows I will say one thing though, If I was younger and still single I would go for this treatment in a heartbeat.
  3. Hair systems

    I had syrup for a little more than 1 year and it was a year too long in my opinion. I experienced that it killed my personality. I was always worrying in case someone noticed it, or someone rubbed my head, I couldn’t really go swimming without a lot of hassle, I hated the hygiene issues, and the worry of the front lifting if I began to sweat, I was totally tense when I was with members of the opposite sex (intimately) in case they tried to touch my hair. The time it took each day to get it sitting correctly was a complete pain. The only påositive i could mention was, that it looked really good when it behaved. In my experience the negatives far out weighed the positiv. In the end I would have happily removed my entire head to be shot of it:) The day I took it off, scrubbed my head and shaved it was a liberation. True I look like shit, but at least I could be myself again. I’ve got to say that I really admire the others who say that they have worn one for years. They must be made of different stuff than me:)
  4. For someone a little older??

    I'm not really bothered about looking younger for my age. I would just settle for looking good for my age:) The thing I hate most about hair loss is how crap my clothes look on me. I can put on something smart or moderne or both and it looks ok, but I know it would much better with a stylish haircut:) As I said in another post. I've nothing against growing old gracefully, I just don't like looking old before my time:(
  5. Another one going under the needle....

    Well done Medman for sharing your experience with everybody else. Especially doing it while you are going through the experience and the nerves are a bit raw. I,m coming at the beginning of next month for a consultation and possible treatment. I have the exact same concern as you,regarding what I willI say to people who mabye notice I've suddenly got a full head of healthy. I have diffuse thinning on top receding temples and a very thin crown, i would say it is probably a NW 5. I'm looking forward to reading your post after the wedding. At least you can get i done gradually and tell people it's growing back:) I don't have that luxary. I' m living in Scandanavia so I'm taking 2 weeks off work and getting the whole lot done at once should I chose to go ahead:) Have a good one at the wedding and drink one for me:)
  6. Suddenly got more hair??

    Will- I've also got my consultation next month- at the very beginning of the month. What ever you do, never get a transplant. I've had two transplants and had a syrup which I discarded after about a year. All of it just cost me money and made me even more insecure. My head is just buzzed to a no 4 now. It's short eneough to be smart and hide the HT scar, but it's not stylish looking. I had my hair shaved to a zero someyears ago before the transplants and everyone said I suited it then, so I'm not afraid of the look. I would just like to avoid people at the office knowing I've had something done. I don't know why. My wife just laughs and says I'm being silly about worrying that people will find out. Mabye, but like you pointed out at the beginning, everone has their own thoughts and opinons about the procedure:)
  7. Removal og post

    Actually I’m a veteran baldy and proud to say I’ve fought it all the way, but as everyone who has graced this forum knows it’s like fighting a losing battle. I’ve had two transplants and wore a system for about a year. Then I decided to accept it. It has been buzzed at a no 4 over the last 5 years or so. Diffuse on top, receded at the temples and wafer thin at the crown. It’s been an uneasy truce, but it held until the arrival of my first daughter. Every time I see a picture of me and her it really bites. I’ve nothing against growing old gracefully, but I hate looking old before my time. Now I hate the thought of the fact that when I’m gone she will only have pictures of this bald guy to look at. Amazing how your view of the world changes with fatherhood. I used to always worry about women and scoring now I’m worrying about what a 2 year old will think of my hair problems. Pathetic or what

    Damien / John. I can see that I've got the wrong end of the stick there. It makes sense now that you've explained it. My apoligies, Grovel, Grovel, Grovel I have a consultation next month, mabye I'm getting a little paranoid:)

    Ok. Today i have looked at ln the latest threads section. amomg 3 of the posts there was the following viewing figures. One with 3977 views, one with more than 2600 views and one with more than 1500 views. I went into the introduce yourself section and the post which was removed after less than 12 hours had only 50 views. The posts with the large viewing figures are old posts (You can see by the dates they were posted, which is between 2008 and 2010. these are old posts which have been placed in the new threads section, I would say to push the post in question off. The poster only asked a question. That is all I have done, yet I find my post has had a comment removed from it and then the thread has been closed after only roughly 3 hours to prevent comment. I mean Please. Do me a favour.
  10. Removal of second post

    As a result of the post below entiteled "Removal of post" I would like to add that the His moderator has removed a reply from the thread which agreed with my post. The His moderator has now closed the thread to prevent further comment. Hardly an open forum and may I add that it hardly installs confidence. Removal of post I read a post from a customer last night in the latest threads section (08.03.2011) concerning loss of pigmentation some months after treatment. The poster had enquired as to what the possible cause of this could be. As I have a consultation next month with possible treatment afterwards I am also interested in finding out why this poster had begun to lose pigmentation some months after treatment. I am sure many other forum readers must be interested. I was also interested to read how His would respond. This morning I notice that this post has been removed (within less than 12 hours). The reason I enquire is not to cause trouble, but I would be interested in finding out (as I suppose many others also would be) as to why this might happen, so as I might avoid such a situation should it possiblly happen to me if I decided to go ahead with treatment. And just as importantly I would have been interesred in seeing how His responded. Is it only positve comments and glowing testimonials which are allowed on the forum?
  11. Removal og post

    My question is still the same which is- Why has this post been removed? it was a new post placed in the latest thread section. Then it's buried in the introduce yourself section within hours of it being posted and replaced by a post with more than 700 views and god knows how many replys. now a post with more than 700 views is not a new post.

  13. Suddenly got more hair??

    Thanks for the reply mate. Doesn't sound silly at all, I wish I'd thought of it:) It's logical that people recognise us by our faces and not our hair. People look at our faces when they communicate with us, not our hair. I think therfore, that it is more than likely that any changes to the face will be registered first by others- That plan would have made Baldrik proud:) Cheers Glen
  14. Has anybody got any good reasons or excuses that can be used if anyone should notice that I’ve suddenly got more hair? At the moment I’m slightly receded at the temples with diffuse thinning on top (still got reasonably good coverage on top) and very thin on the crown (see through thin). I keep my hair cut at a number 5. My biggest concern is others noticing that I’ve had something done at work or wondering where the new hair has come from. I’m hoping that any change which others notice will be put down to the change of hairstyle rather than it being noticed that I’ve suddenly more hair. I’m planning to stay away from work for a couple of weeks so people also get a little break from seeing me every day. I’m due for a consultation and possible treatment if I decide to go through with it in a months’ time and this is my biggest concern. Any feedback or input would be greatly appreciated:) Cheers Glen
  15. For someone a little older??

    Hi. Thanks for the feedback.
