» At what age should some one go for a HT? i am 26
that’s an open ended question but definately not at your age.
minimum should be about 35, with FUE only (NOT strip transplant). first procedure should be a small one (< 500 grafs) spread out just to test it out. no aggressive hair lines or you are asking for trouble.
stay on propecia / avodart, rogaine, 2% nizoral till then and after then as well. if you don’t want to take drugs to preserve your hair after a transplant, you may as well forget about a transplant or keeping your existing hair.
one more thing, if you are norwood 5/6/7…etc forget about a hair transplant unless you have tons of body hair and an endless supply of money. get in shape, shave it and accept it… until a cure arrives for this sh&tty disease.
