  • All you bald people who have no money for the pills, let alone the surgery, who's confidence about balding has been knocked by someone else getting this done for free, and can also afford it if it wasnt, and are basically rubbing your nose in it - enjoy your misery! 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!

  • 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.

  • 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
