  • I’m transmasculine and take testosterone to transition towards androgyny. I’ve been taking finasteride for about a year to avoid male pattern baldness and preserve my hairline as much as possible. My hairline has still managed to recede some, but I don’t wanna know what it may have done without preventative measures.

  • get aloe vera from supermarket or steal from your neighbour's aloe vera's plant, slice it, cut and take the inside, blend it, use it on your scalp and let it sit for 1 hour, rinse, repeat 3 times a week. It works! Remember to store them in tight-seal container in fridge and throw when it smells funky

  • 0:58 Nah, 99% of people look better with a full head of hair. And only a very little percent of people can pull off the bald look, since it requires you to either be extremely attractive and/or have masculine facial features and skull.

  • 8:52 Look at the front of his head. It's obvious that the _direction_ of the individual hair strands is off. You don't want this done using a robot, but say a wax figure artist that knows how to create artificial hair. This is exactly the type of procedure that requires a human touch.

  • Not trying be negative but I don't see a big improvement from how his hair look from the beginning. Currently his hair is full in certain areas but his hairline is still jack up. Someone explain..

  • To Zach and anyone taking steroids, it is extremely common to have feelings of depression or just feeling blue while on them! They are a neceserray and a very good medication but have some sideeffects. I am so happy for Zach that he is feeling confident and happy, but people should be told about these things. It is not bad to have some side effects from medicine, but it is so hard to deal with them if you are not educated about them.

  • Honestly 👀 Zach with shaved sides or an undercut makes him look from 19 to 28. That actually is a nice haircut for his face shape. In time when the hair has grown out finally, it would look good for him to do some fading and shave the sides with the top full for sure.

  • I know what you mean when you felt sad and kinda doubt yourself after the restoration procedure.. I had lazy eyes and it really crushes my self confidence. About 4 years back, I decided to get my eyes fixed. I felt terrible after my surgery because I felt like I am like hating my own body or something.. I kept saying about body positivity and loving ownself but I went for a surgery to fix my lazy eyes because I hated how people always asked if I was talking to them or strangers saying that I am very rude for not looking at them while talking. (I was!! But my eyes were all over the place) I hated taking photos because of how I looked in them. I am always closing 1 of my eye whenever I had to take (like winking in the photo but I am actually hiding the fact I can't focus my eyes) But after the surgery, my friends and family all told me that there is a different aura around me.. I became more confident and more out going and happier. Zach, I am really proud of you to show this to us and I am very glad that you are so much happier now!!

  • I had amazing hair in highschool. Thick, full, and a great hairline. 6 years later I have a receding hairline, and the hair on too of my head is thin and whispy like donald trump. It got worse and worse and until enough was enough. I shaved my head bald... best decision ever. I actually like how I look for once and the bald head compliments my beard nicely. I could have gotten surgery, or got a hair system...but nahh. I am who I am. I don't fault Zach though, whatever makes you happy is the way to go.

  • Well, they created miniature damage within the scalp, then they applied PRP. So what percentage is regrowth due to natural causes and wound healing, and which is the actual hairs from the back of the neck? Also, Finastride is ancient research. Not a single company is on the DHT route anymore, this was back in the 50's. Its all about wounding and healing and PRP like injections. Scalp losing elasticity, calcification of miniature vessels are the cause of male pattern baldness.DHT actually grows stronger hair, however, it needs to travel freely without being stuck. MPB is basically a miniature myocardial infarction

  • Hair Surgery worries me greatly. I know several men, that have gone through total personality transplants (and not for the better), along with their hair procedures. My own friend changed within hours, from this amazing, good looking, kind, man, into someone who was arrogant and egotistical, and inconsiderate, thinking he was God's gift to women. I put it down to the post-op drugs initially, but it just got worse.... and then 2 months later of waiting for him to calm down, he ditched me in a really horrible way... Months after that he rejected his family, and he started getting into trouble because of his attitude. After he ditched me, I began to look into it, and discovered it's really quite common for such radical personality changes to happen afterwards, as people feel their confidence return, and finally feel "themselves". :(

    • @M S - Yes. When he had his procedure, that night, he said "Now all the girls will want me. I can have my pick of any of them. I'll be fighting them off now" ... he repeated it about 6 times in different ways, and then he said "Now, I can be the real me!". I thought it was the drugs. Within a couple of weeks I found out, he was already with someone else, picked up, a day after the Surgery. He said of it, that ours wasn't a real relationship, and that how could I "think that way, when to look at me [him]... and then...well... there's you [me]"..... and that was it. ... All because of the hair procedure. He ended it officially, by making a ISpast video, with the new girlfriend, and uploading it, without telling me first, so I just discovered it. He then said some horrible things to me, trying to find a fight to make himself feel better, about it. I didn't bite I guess it was a lucky escape for me, if that's who he really was, after apparently "acting" for 4 years with me, no matter how upsetting it was at the time. :(
