    Some of you know I decided to get the follicle hair transplant in December. I'm embarrassed to show my early pictures but I will because it may help someone. I am very pleased with my results so far. It has seven months. Here are a few pictures. I wore sew-ins because I am transitioning so you me see weave.:lol:



    The beginning

    A few months after (about 4-5 months after)

    I still have a way to go but I am definitely happy with what I see so far.

    It worked!!! Your hair looks great, and it will only get better. I'm so happy for you. The ladies that were on the fence about the procedure will be glad to see these photos.

    What happened to your hairline? Did you shave it off or did it come out? If so, how?

    I went to a doctor in New Orleans who specializes in hair restoration. Fine 4s

    My hairline was already thin from tight ponytails as a child. And then I got micro braids in 2006 and my hairline was totally bald after that. Nothing I did made fill in. I even tried the cortisone injections for a year. It helped a little but it never filled in completely. virtuenow



    Thanks everyone. The dr. told me I should see full results after a year.

    That looks great! Something I may have to keep in mind. I have some areas that just aren't growing no matter what I do. Thanks so much for sharing :)

    The only part of the procedure that hurts is when I had to get injections throughout my hairline and donor area to numb it. I would do it again though. It was like getting shots just a lot of them.
