So here goes my story :
Current scenario : I am 29 years old currently. Have a receding hairline ( not much ). Hair all over the top have thinned but thankfully are still present on the entire top .
Have been taking finasteride 1 mg daily for the past 5 years . Have also been taking biotin/vit&min supplement daily for past 4 years
20 years : started noticing a receding hairline.
23 years : Hair thinning all over but hairline recede did not progress thankfully
25 years : Was so depressed with thin hair that I decided to shave my head. Started applying minoxidil and taking finax regularly hoping to restore my hair.mad.gif.
Applied and took both these meds for a year.
Shaved my head again: kept on applying and taking meds . Developed severe psoriosis and sabbhoric dermatitis on scalp. Applied meds for psoriosis too.
Essentially lost 2 years of my life . In these 2 years I did nothing fruitful other than to try to get back my hair.All this trial eventually led to a massive depression episode.
27 years : Sense and a new opportunity career vise forced me out of this vicious circle.Left applying minoxidil.Continued taking finasteride and a hair supplement tab .
28 year : A job transfer to a place with extremely hard water , developing chronic seborrheic dermatitis , applying various topical medicines for the same caused further loss in year 2015 and 2016 .To the extent that bare scalp was visible in front region of scalp.
So in January 2017 I was suggested by my local dermatologist to consider a hair transplant.
Started doing research. After months of doing the same finally landed in Arenamed Hair Transplant Clinic in may 2017 .He suggested me 4200 grafts for hairline , temple creation and mid scalp.
