FORHAIR Real Story

Rediscovering My Roots: A Hair Transplant Journey in Korea  Week number 4 brought some big changes, not only for my follicles, but also for my family. My sister-in-law got married, thus adding another “brother” into my life. My children were in the wedding, and it was the first time I made a very public appearance post surgery. This was also the week where the transplanted hairs began to fall out regularly, starting to show my pre-op disposition. Thus, you will notice about halfway through the pictures, I have a shaved head. I plan to keep it this way during the transition period to make it less obvious, and so as to not shock myself too much when glancing in the mirror. All things considered, a wonderful week of life!

FORHAIR Real Story

Rediscovering My Roots: A Hair Transplant Journey in Korea Week 3 was very positive overall, as far as hair transplant progress goes. I began washing my hair for the first time in 2 weeks, and the remaining redness in the transplanted areas continued to decrease. I resumed my exercise regimen as usual and have encountered no issues. Look at the pictures posted and take a stroll through my week! Week 3. My shampooing experience
Day 15
I decided to wait an extra day to shampoo, just to be cautious. As directed, I GENTLY massaged the transplanted areas along with the rest of my head. I felt wonderfully strange, as I finally was able to "scratch" my itching, but still felt some desensitization in the areas.

You can still notice some flaking and collections of grease and blood, but this washed out over the next few days of shampooing. I suppose I could have taken a really long shower and massaged it all out at once, but again, I decided to air on the side of caution and take my…
