How I Got My Hair Back 2020 My story with baldness

male-pattern baldness is something nobody wants but due to our genetics two-thirds of guys will see in their lives forty percent of guys will start seeing it in their mid-30s whereas 65% start seeing it in their 60s however I fall into the 18% of people who start developing it early and for me that was at age 19 it started to thin out over the next few years mainly we were receding hairline but it was only until back in December when I was 21 is well I actually started noticing a visible difference

especially when I went to the shower or using product in my hair that I just see clumps of hair starting to come out and it is a bit scary there's also around this time when I realized it wasn't just a receding hairline it was going from the crown of my head all the way to my mid scalp region this is when I started wearing beanies regularly because I didn't want to go outside and feel self-conscious

about my ever-growing balding head that people would be looking at me and like laughing or making a comment about it so I thought if I just cover it and leave it hopefully one day it will just fix itself which of course it didn't I remember today when it got too much for me because I was filming for a new web series I wanted to make which was teaching you all about sound called listen up we've been filming at the YouTube space all day and after we finished filming we looked over the rushes and I noticed how bad my head had gotten which then prompted me to completely cancel the series that

night I decided enough is enough and I needed to get this sorted so I booked in with a private specialist the following morning who would assess my head and let me know if any treatments could be done she looked over my head and I recommend that I get a hair transplant and just in case you're thinking it I didn't get a hair transplant just so you know now my second visit to the specialist this is when they would go into more detail about how many hair follicles I needed to be moved and how

much it was going to cost so after looking over my head they then said I needed to transfer 2,500 hair follicles from the back of my head to the front now I know that sounds like quite a lot but you got to bear in mind that on our heads we have around about a hundred thousand hair follicles so I just left the meeting the specialist showed me be different type of procedures they do they even take a strip of hair at the back and then use those hair follicles to inject back into the head or they take out individually doing it individually can cost like almost triple the amount whereas there's a strip it's

easier it's quick and it's a lot cheaper as well so I think that's probably gonna be on my option of taking a strip out after the second meeting I wanted to go for a second opinion to make sure everything I was doing was correct I mean the whole procedure would have cost quite a lot of money and for that much cattle answer to make sure that everything was going to be correct because I just wanted to save waver I had left and so I went to a different clinic and I spoke with a surgeon who did

performed many hair transplants himself to assess my head and make sure everything was all fine and this is where I get us interesting I was meeting with the surgeon today what was real interesting is that he actually suggested I didn't get a transplant he looked over my head and I explained to him that I wanted to get a hair transplant and then to my surprise he said to me if you get a hair transplant you're going to go bald quicker to explain this a little bit better when you have a hair transplant they take out the hair follicles from the back and research it into the front then that hair follicle dies off

and then regrow thus having new hair but with me for example as I've still got a built hair up there by stitching in new hair follicles and Nick then being killed off it will then kill off all the other existing hair follicles I have up there and then that won't regrow when their new hair follicle does that's making me bolder after hearing that news it was kind of bittersweet because on the one hand it was fantastic that I wouldn't have to pay thousands of pounds for a procedure which just wouldn't work and if anything make it worse but then on the other hand I was still very worried about what I was

going to do in terms of my hair because my hair was still falling out rapidly and yeah I started to get teary eyed in his office because I couldn't think of any other solution but then our he said the sweet words off we won't be able to get it all back but we will be able to get most of it back he explained that the long hair follicles in my head were falling out but the new hair follicles were growing in but very very slowly thus making my hair look more bold and more thin he then said if you wanted to see the hair regrow then you're gonna have to start taking medication which is this this is finished dried

it's one time you take every single day so this is the first one of many and he won't start to see noticeable differences until after around about three or four months and he recommends that you take photos after each month so you can actually see the progress and this is mine so this is month one as month too this is month three and this is month four I'll be taking it now for over seven months and I'm mostly the results are being fantastic like it's really built up my self-confidence again I don't need to wear any beanies anymore and it doesn't break the bank there's zero side effects and it's just yeah

it's now just part of my daily routine and even getting the medication it's really simple I don't need to go to a doctor to get anything signed off I don't need to go to another clinic or anything I can actually do it straight through super drug on their website and get it delivered to my door and it's it's just perfect but thanks very much for watching this video I know it's a very different video to what I usually make but I felt like sharing today if you like this video then make sure they give a link down below and you want to see future videos and make sure to click Subscribe but until then you can follow me on twitter at mightiness and I'll see you next time
