Well, I need to move from denial to action. The concealers are getting harder to apply and soon I will be painting my head. I have enclosed some pics and welcome comments.

The quality is useless but the impression is clear enough I hope. I have enclosed the pics with concealer to show what I can achieve and what I would like to achieve but without the concealer. I am in my 40s and have a high density of donor hair but you can comment on where i am going!

The first pic bellow shows my hair with concealer about four years ago just before I started on avodart. After three years on avo, i had lost a lot of hair!!!! I know you will not believe me but without the concealer I looked pretty bald because the intermediate hairs were so fine.

This is me with concealer now (below). I looks O.Kish but i have to cut my hair much shorter now (I do it myself) to give an even look after the concealer is applied. (It's dermatch by the way)

Here are pics without concealer (below). Hmmm, I am getting there and that last bit of intermediate hair will be lost soon. I started loosing at 20ish (25 years ago) so as you can see it is a long painful process for me. I have and do use everything under the sun so don't even bother with the treatment suggestions. I was using fin before it was even FDA approved in about 1991 so maybe it all got slowed down but actually I don't think any of them helped me. I do use min foam now and also read my stars.

My take is that I will have a 100-120cm2 area to deal with in the end and also that I have about 80 to deal with now. I should have put a tape measure by my head but I didn't. My father was a type 6 but he was bald about 10 years in front of me. I just edited the post and put some measurements in that give a slightly worse picture. .

does this help? Roughly, it adds up to 100cm2 for a full treatment.

Roughly speaking I end up like this looking into the future (bellow). The measurements I put in are very slightly shorter in reality but I want to be realistic.

The measurement lines get deceptive because they are being drawn on a flat screen. The frontal section measurement actually would curve if drawn in a straght line and cover most of the hairline that seems to be missed. So the lines say. If your geometry is any good you'l see.

Crown (6 X 10) + (4 X 10) = 100cm2

Front = (6 X 6) + (4 X 6) = 60cm2

= 160cm2

At the moment the total area that could be transplanted is only 100cm2 so it just goes to show that a little extra loss at the periphery adds up to a big area!!!!

Still at 50Fu / cm2 that is 8000. I have between 130cm2 and 160cm2 of safe donor so it would be a stretch!!! My donor density is high but this could change by the time I'm 70 and I will still want to look like james dean at 70 so it will be a stretch for sure!!!
