Watch This Traction Alopecia Video - 12 Months After Hair Transplant - Alopecia Areata Natural Treatment
Dr. Huebner: Dr. Huebner here. Natural transplants and I'm here with our superstar Tanya. And a lot of people been watching Tanya's videos from the very beginning when she had her surgery day to her five-month. Five months or seven months. I think we had...
Tanya: Four months.
Dr. Huebner: Four months yeah and then a seven month something and now it's a year. So this is her latest video at a year. Her final result. Tanya tell us about your hair. How do you feel about it? How has your life been?
Tanya: It's been great I love my hair. You know nobody knows I did this, so yeah nobody can say like your hair is growing in. So everybody just always says I have really pretty hair, so nobody knows. A lot of the young ladies call me when they want to ask questions and talk to me and things like that but other than that no one knows about it.
Dr. Huebner: Yeah. Okay good so it looks natural no one's saying it looks unnatural nobody even knew you look like that before and they think you have normal hair.
Tanya: That’s correct.
Dr. Huebner: Perfect.
Tanya: Yeah the only people that know is my YouTube haters and lovers because I have them both.
Dr. Huebner: There is a lot of haters out there and a lot of lovers out there so but you're certainly...
Tanya: I like both of them, it doesn't matter to me. Me and Dr. Matt was talking and we're going to answer some of your questions because we get a lot of YouTube hits. I guess my app pops up at a lot of places so. He can't answer all of your questions because he doesn't have my hair. A lot of you young ladies want to know if you can get a relaxer. First, I want to say I don't do anything unless the doc tells me to. Before I do something I call him first because you girls are thinking with my ponytail you were saying I'm going to take my hair back out I'm going to take my edges back out. Ponytails don't take out edges. Number one. Number two if you were listening to my video, I was explaining that my hair was not pulled back in the ponytail, not mine. Excuse me, my transplant plant here. It was just laid down. It was not any tension on that part right. She just sprayed it and laid it down. The type of hair texture I have I can do that. A lot of people can't but I can. So no I was not putting in any traction on my hair. So if you get this procedure remember don't do anything that's going to pull it on a constant basis. Dr. Matt we talk all the time and he was explaining to me that anything I do I need to do it in moderation but don't do anything that I'm like you know pulling. So that's common sense. I would never do that. I didn't do this, to come this far to take my hair back out.
Dr. Huebner: I agree. Yes, absolutely. How does it look on the other side there Tanya? For the viewers maybe we could show.
Tanya: Oh listen, let me show you guys how long it's...
Dr. Huebner: So that's all new transplant hair.
Tanya: Okay and so you can see that, I don't know how good it's going to show but my hair guys my hair was long so I can do anything and it just blends right in, see. So see, I just blended that that short part back in. You know your hair grows like a couple of inches a month or whatever so remember it was gone. So right here is just my hair brush back now that my hair is a certain length, I can brush it back. I can brush it back.
Dr. Huebner: Now look at that edge now you have the sideburn there that wasn't there before that's all recreated. None of that was there.
Tanya: Yeah. If you guys remember all of this was gone.
Dr. Huebner: It was all gone. Your forehead was twice the size you were you know, it affected you.
Tanya: Yeah and you know some of you think that my hairline looks fake I promise for everything. This is my hairline. Dr. Matt didn't make me one.
Dr. Huebner: No that's your old hairline.
Tanya: Right. Back in the day I have an apple head guys. Here is a round circle so my hairline literally the way God made me it's that this is my hairline. He just took it. Because remember I had a little bit of hair so he was able to see where to put it.
Dr. Huebner: The remnants of your old hairline were there so we could see exactly where it was yep. So yeah but not to say you couldn't load it anywhere you wanted to but that's just natural. That's as natural as it gets.
Tanya: Right which comes to my next...me and him talk for a while. A lot of you guys are asking can he lower the hair lines. I said it last time but he can. He literally asked me if I wanted it lowered. If I wanted my hairline changed and I told him no I want my natural hairline because you know I didn't know what it was going to be. But as you can see, what he did he is awesome because look he blended. You see how the part was short but look you can't even tell. I just have my hair in this style. This is the style I wanted to wear this week.
Dr. Huebner: Yep awesome. What other questions are you getting? Anything else you want to answer on the video?
Tanya: Yes, I'm going to disappoint most of you probably because you were begging me not to get a relaxer but guess what? I got one. I know my haters are going to go crazy but a lot of ladies was asking can they get a relaxer. So again I asked my doctor and he told me I don’t even have to wait the year but I just got the relaxer last week. My year was up on the 28th but I'm going to tell you I'm in Jacksonville Florida and it is hot as fish grease. And it's really humid. In the afternoon it rains so it was really hard for me to take care of my hair like the what I do for a living. The certain look that I had I couldn't do it without relaxer. So that's why I did it. My hair is still nice and healthy. I know how to take care of my hair. A lot of you think I'm-- I do know how to take care of my hair. The years of the braids were over and I see some of you arguing about the braid thing to each other. As you keep wearing braids your hair gets thinner in the nape area. It gets thinner. And if you don't stop you will have tractional alopecia. Again to make myself clear, I'm 40 that's how old I am. I was wearing braids in my twenties. All in my twenties. It's like I just was cocky like, oh my hair go back. When I saw it thinning and then I have identical triplets and I was 33 and I had got these microbraids. And I was wearing them. The whole pregnancy I was so lazy I didn't want to do my hair and when I took those micro braids off my hair was like bye-bye that's it. So that's when I started getting like, I didn't even realize it pushed it back and this it fell out. I stopped getting the relaxers because I thought that but you know and I started going to dermatologists and I was doing all kind of stuff rubbing things on but once those hair follicles are dead, it's gone. It's bad you can't do anything about it. Another question, Dr. Matt asked me to address was you girls are asking about if your hair is falling out in the inner area can he transplant the hair and if so will it fall out? The answer is no because listen. This part of your hair is one genetic trait gene, whatever. The back of your hair is the difference that's why a lot of men lose their hair in the front and they have hair in the back. So when he takes that hair out of the back and puts it in the front it's a completely different genetics so you can't... pulp that he puts in it grows out of that. So I know it's hard to understand but a lot of phone calls I've gotten, they ask me that like isn't your hair going to just fall right back out? And that's not the case. The reason why I know because I researched it and then I got my good doc here. Because of the number of views, we're getting and the questions like he has to teach me how to answer your questions and show me what it means. So when young ladies are calling me from all of the world they're like I don't get that's that works. And what it is he literally puts a completely different genetic hair graph from the back to the front and your hair starts growing on it. So now like this hair right here is not the same hair texture as it was before. This hair is now the hair texture that is back here. So it's thicker.
Dr. Huebner: It's the same hair. Yeah all you're doing is moving it from the back to the front and that hair is resistant to any genetic changes that you may have. A lot of people not only have traction alopecia, they have kind of thinness up top because it runs in their family. So by taking it from the back you're basically solving both problems. You're putting that there and that's there for good so even when you're older it'll still be the same thickness. So yep.
Tanya: Think about it like this. Remember how he said he can change your hairline; you don't grow hair on your forehead. So by him changing your hairline and that hair is growing like that it doesn't matter. It's because he put it inside. And that's what it's going out of so hopefully I've answered that. I've answered the ponytail question. I answered the relaxer question. So yes young ladies, you can get a relaxer. Try not to get it within the first six months. Even the doc said I could but from my experience I'm going to tell you this. Your hair is still growing and adapting and like it doesn't all grow at the same time. Like it's growing but you still...like right now doc told me that six months from now it will still be some growing. That's not going now. I still might get a certain percentage probably within another what you say six months to a year or something like. It's constantly growing so just try to wait it out to kind of see.
Dr. Huebner: Natural is the best way. Natural is the best way to go so less is more sometimes.
Tanya: Yeah it's just where I live. I think if I was up somewhere where it was always medium temperature that I could have made it but constantly getting a blowout that’s just damaging. So I'm the type of person I go to the stylist every week because of this weather. So things like that. And my stylist she takes care of my hair and so I'm confident that I'll be fine. But I just wanted to answer those questions. Me and the doc we're looking at all the YouTube comments and things like that and we talked about me answering some of the questions. Oh yeah, you guys have been asking about that sutured the cut, you can't even see. First of all, I don't have keloid skin. So because, I don't have keloid skin. My stylist, she can't even find my cut. It's almost like it has disappeared. Seriously. I have my husband digging through and he was like man you only see my cut if I probably shave bald because the line is like completely, I don't know how he did that.
Dr. Huebner: Years of experience that's what, that's how you do that. But it's not an issue for you it's not like you losing any hair in the back it doesn't make any difference.
Tanya: No oh someone, one of the young ladies I have a lot of women that call me do I won't say any names but one of them asks me about the hair growth in the back and the hair growth in the front. Yes, the hair growth in the back is faster. Like my back part is like this long already. Where he shaved it you can't see any like it just looks like my hair. You can't see like a line. She asks me if you can see. You can't tell anything is different. You can't tell at all. And it has grown, it grows quicker in the back for me that's the way my hair goes. My hair in the back grows quicker. So like I said it's long in the back. It's almost this much to where my real length is and the front yes is growing slower but it's growing. Like my stylist is like oh my gosh it's growing so fast because remember it was bald. And when he started it over they had to break through the skin and start growing so... But as you can see you can't even tell it is shorter because how the hair is. It's just blending very well. I didn't want to wear it all back so I wanted you guys to be able to see that to wear your hair. I can do whatever I want to it now.
Dr. Huebner: And fortunately you can bring it back in a ponytail yeah. So you can do whatever you want your back to normal. Back to where you were before.
Tanya: So a lot you wanted to see what it looks like after a year. it does. And I'm and again I’m a show you. The doctor told me to make sure I'm showing you. And remember I have a relaxer. So this is amazing. It didn't thin it. It didn't make me look like I had little no. It is perfect. So he wanted you to see. And this I just had brush back and tuck right here so that’s it with that.
Dr. Huebner: Well thank you so much Tanya. This has been very informative. You have a lot of fans now and I'm going to put some pictures on there too. I'm going to see if Tanya can maybe send us some pictures. We can put on there as well so you can see a little better.
Tanya: Okay I'll take some.
Dr. Huebner: Awesome. Thank you so much Tanya. and you know I think maybe in the future every once in a while with me would address some questions people are asking you on YouTube or whatnot.
Tanya: Oh definitely.
Dr. Huebner: It's maybe easier to do it in this format.
Tanya: He said as long as you guys keep asking questions. He'll call me up and I'll answer the questions. I'm sorry if I didn't it was so many questions but those are like the main ones. You guys I promise you I'm not going to take my hair out.
Dr. Huebner: Well, we follow you up to see though. All right tiny thank you so much.
Tanya: Thank you talk to you later.
