When Ryan was young, he had really thick, black curly hair he always loved. So when he started losing his hair in his mid-20s, it hit him hard – and made him feel like was losing his youth along with his hair. He said, “It was kinda devastating because it showed a sign of age even though I wasn’t really getting that old yet.”
Ryan struggled with his hair loss for years before he’d finally had enough. When he started seeking a solution, Ryan said, “I chose Bosley because they’re the hair doctors. They’ve been doing this for over 50 years and they’re the pros in the industry. When I connected with my local senior counselor, she talked to me about the hair loss I was experiencing. And after that appointment, I knew I had to have the procedure done with Bosley.”
Ryan’s FUE hair transplant changed his self-image as well as other aspects of his life for the better. “After the procedure and my hair was growing back, I feel like it took like 10 years off my face. […] Looking in the mirror, looking younger, having people perceive you as younger, it’s almost like a self-fulfilling prophecy in a sense – you start working out more, I lost weight, I put on muscle, and I’m just kinda getting out of the box and enjoying life again.”
After experiencing the boost of confidence he got from his hair transplant, Ryan wants other men to understand hair loss CAN be treated. “For the millions of men out there dealing with hair loss, my message would be that there’s something we can do about it. It seems to be stigmatized for men – it honestly took a while for me to be comfortable talking about hair loss and my procedure with Bosley – but I’m enjoying the results so much that I hope that other people consider it as well.”
