\'see through hair\'


#1

Hi

I need some help.
I have had a few hair transplants in the past, mostly quite successful.

My problem now is what I can only call ‘See through hair’.

I still have the transplanted hair, but little else, so that when I stand with a light or light coloured background behind me me scalp is clearly visable through the transplanted hair.

I hope I have explained that correctly.

Due to the various proceedures in the past I have very little donor site left at the back of my head.

Does anyone have any suggestions for this problem.

Many thanks

Sunrise.

I have news for you–it might have been like that all along, only its gotten worse.

I’ve got the same problem.

There’s nothing really practical to do about it. You could try those colored sprinkles or that shoe polish masking lotion stuff–but at best you could look like you dyed your hair, and it would look like you’re wearing a wig.

I’m just waiting and hoping that HM will happen and will help me.

Meanwhile, I’m planning to move to Alaska, where people wear hats most of the year. Thank goodness for telecommuting.

Soon I’ll be so old it won’t matter any more anyway.

No one pays much attention to old farts.
