• Beyond Facebook: The Future of Social Networking For The Hair Transplant Community Is Here

    Whether you are a fan of online social networks or not, the truth is they’re enormously popular for one simple reason, they make it easier for people to connect and share information. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, the likelihood of you being a member of at least one online social network is pretty high.

    We first became involved in hair loss social networking when our sister site, The Women’s Hair Loss Project (WHLP) launched it’s all female hair loss network in January 2008. Today, The Women’s Hair Loss Project site and Social Network is the most recognized site in the world for women suffering with hair loss, and ranks #1 in Google and Yahoo. WHLP has been featured in several publications and by media outlets including the New York Times, The The Atlanta Journal Constitution, and MSN.com. Dermatologists from around the world are now recommending The Women’s Hair Loss Project to their female patients as a place to find support, compassion and understanding from those who can relate to their suffering most, other women dealing with hair loss.

    As the first and most successful online social network in the hair loss industry, The Women’s Hair Loss Project Network pioneered the concept of niche social networking in our field. While others have attempted to duplicate the Network, even utilizing the exact same software, The Women’s Hair Loss Project has been the only hair loss focused social network to experience such mainstream success.  We are proud that our sister site has made such a groundbreaking splash and have been inspired by this success to create an online social Network for a niche community as well. We are proud to announce the launch of  HairTransplantCommunity.com!

    HairTransplantCommunity.com is the first and only social network dedicated entirely to surgical hair restoration. This community is a safe and empowering place for hair transplant veterans, physicians and those considering hair restoration surgery to share their experiences, their struggles, their strength and their hope with others who understand. Share your hair transplant journey through video, blogs, and photos. Hairtransplantcommunity.com is your personal hair restoration network! I look forward to seeing you there.

  • Concerns About Shedding From Propecia – What Are The Chances It Will Occur?

    I have spent countless hours researching hair loss including getting bombarded by television, radio, internet, etc etc. It’s nice to be able to read a website (The Bald Truth & IAHRS) and listen to someone with obvious knowledge in the field. I know you always write a disclaimer in your emails that you’re not a doctor but I’m willing to bet you know more about the subject of hair loss, physically and emotionally than 99% of the doctors out there.

    I have 2 questions and I appreciate any time you put into responding. I am 32 years old and first noticed I started thinning when I was about 25. I haven’t done a thing for it but to be honest it’s been really gradual. I’m currently about a stage 3 on the scale (I forget the name) so it’s definitely time to either “shave it or save it”.

    I am going to start using Propecia, hopefully I didn’t wait too long to get that working. I’m just wondering about the ‘shedding’ phase. It doesn’t mention it on the Propecia website and I haven’t been able to find much credible information on this. I’m just wondering what the chances are of this occurring, and if it does happen how much shedding given the worst case scenario? Read more ›

  • Dealing With Hair Loss and My Concerns For The Future | Mike’s Hair Loss Story

    It was a week or two before my 23rd birthday and while at work, I finally took a closer look in the mirror at what I believed were two extremely small bald spots at the temples. I thought it had something to do with my haircut, or the way my hair was combed, but even after my co workers told me it was nothing, I knew deep down that something bad was going on.

    All my life I looked at my father’s side of the families terrible male pattern baldness. Growing up however, I never ever once thought that baldness could happen to me. I just felt that I wasn’t the type, and certainly didn’t have the “look” to go bald. Over on my mothers side, along with my maternal grandfather, it’s 100% full heads of hair. But fast forward a little over a year from that day at work, while having just turned 24, and my temples have now receded drastically to the point where I can barely cover them up anymore. Everyday is a struggle, having to worry about fixing my hair. Read more ›
