    saltyninjasaltyninja18 timmar sedan
  • The non- transplanted hair is still going to thin, he’s going to have to continue to do this multiple times. Not everyone can afford this, plus he will have to start using finasteride, which could have potential life altering side effects over long periods of time. Just shave it, or get it cut with whatever it is you have left and move on.

  • While you were healing and your poor face was so swollen, I'm wondering if you were on Prednisone or some other steroid? They can MESS with your mood and emotions terribly. I have to take prednisone for autoimmune issues sometimes and it makes me a hungry, crabby, emotional mess.

    VV VBVV VBDag sedan
    • it's really not affordable for most people including myself. Although the cost really depends on a lot of factors but it's mainly the number of hair grafts and the surgeon you choose. If you really want an affordable option and also want great results,consider getting it done in other countries outside of the US. A lot of great options out there. Always take consultation and research your options before finalizing.

Thanks rich and privileged Zach, who presents this expensive option as a "choice".

  • I see a lot of negative comments about your hair cut, which I feel is weird considering this is a video about your journey with hair insecurity. I think the most important thing is that you gained confidence through this journey, and it really shows. It doesn't actually matter how your hair is styled..its how you FEEL. And now, your hair grows back- You can try all these different hair cuts and styles!! I think you looked great, pre haircut and post. Because YOU feel better, and that makes you glow! Men could use more positive role models like you!

  • Finastride is fcking poison . It’s banned in most countries for irreversible side effects. If you are one of the 2% who get the hormones messed up there is no coming back.

    GammaGGammaG2 dagar sedan
    • @Sami Nelson exactly same situation. Bad stomach (IBS) due to antibiotics. Started losing hair at 27 , took hair supplements, creams and finastride (for 7mos) felt the symptoms and stopped . Took 2years for hormones to normalize .

      GammaGGammaG5 timmar sedan
    • Oh wow I didn’t know that, I’m not surprised though. I’m all for modern medicine but sometimes the side effects are worse than what they’re fixing. Even medically necessary antibiotics gave me acid reflux that still hasn’t gone away. As someone who’s lost like 40% of their hair due to stress I can definitely understand the desire to take something to fix it but I just can’t see the risk being worth it. Good for Zach that he’s fine and happy though.

  • 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.

  • 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.
