I’ve been on Fin for 2 years, Rogaine for 6 years, and dermarolling for the past 4 months. Also been using Nizoral shampoo for like 3 years. Talked with 3 different reputable hair transplant doctors and they all said I am too young (24 yrs old) for transplant and that my hairloss seems pretty aggressive. I have diffuse hairloss and was told that my donor reserves are somewhat limited. With the current pattern I will probably end up as NW6/7. I feel like Fin/Rogaine had slowed it down a bit but it seems to be less effective then it use to be and my hairloss is starting to accelerate again. I’ve been thinking about doing PRP now. Any other things worth trying assuming money is not an issue? One of the hair transplant doctors recommended I switch from Rogaine foam to liquid since it absorbs slightly better. I’ve been on it for a couple weeks now and have had major dandruff. Hoping it will clear in a couple weeks otherwise I will switch back to foam.
P.S. I’m not looking for a surgeon to say yes. I talked with some of the best surgeons in the game, and they all said no, so i’m going to take their word for it. I will not go to some shady place to have a hair transplant.
I wrote a paper a bit over a year ago suggesting that when combining FUE (of FUT) with Scalp Micropigmentation, almost anyone can have a hair transplant (https://newhair.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/Combining_Follicular_Unit_Extraction_and_Scalp.98621.pdf). A try to teach here that everyone needs a Personalized Master Plan for their hair loss and that includes a hair transplant when appropriate. Although I tend to delay hair transplants on 24 year old men, to at least 25 or 26, if the balding pattern is clearly evident, I have often transplanted someone of your age provided that the man is (1) mature, (2) realistic, (3) has realistic expectations which I help set and (4) they have the financial means to complete what they started.
