  1. Need feedback

    definitely over-analyzing man.....your treatment looks incredible - i can't even tell where your real follicles are and where SMP is.
  2. How close down do you have to shave?

    there's no rule here....the one thing anybody who has smp will tell u, is the concept of 3D (real hair) vs 2D (SMP). For example, I'm like a norwood 5 i think, so i do have some stubbles up top but not much. When I let my hair grow for 2-3 days u can see a clear difference as far as hair sticking out on the sides vs next to nothing on top and around the crown. Now, does it bug me? Not really, especially when I'm just going to the gym or groceries. My advice is just to experiment with it and go with what you're comfortable. I've established a routine of shaving to the bone with a razor in the shower every two days, but I have a buddy who does it religiously daily.. The choice, my friend, is yours.
  3. How’s my first session looking?

    dots will always be big at the beginning, ,just like getting a regular tattoo and the ink appears thicker.. Reason? Most of it is scabs which will fall off over time, and the dots under the dermal layer will shrink in the next few weeks, so no need to worry. I think for a 1st session your treatment looks amazing!
  4. Hair line is too dark.'s a roller coaster ride man.....looks good!
  5. My not so good smp story so far

    sorry to hear about your experience buddy. The pigment does seem a bit blu-ish, which makes me think that this was NOT done at a HIS clinic. Wherever you got this done at, I would escalate to their management and have the situation rectified. It has less to do with the size of the dot, than for the fact that it appears the ink used isn't the same ones used for SMP. Best of luck man and I know it's easier said than done, but it's not the end of the world and the situation can, and will be resolved.
  6. Hair line is too dark.

    Hey bud....from my personal experience, i don't think you have anything to worry about. Most of the darkness you see will become scabs and once the dots settle, it will become MUCH lighter. I guarantee you, until you complete the full treatment, once it becomes lighter you will miss seeing the dark hairline!
  7. My daily pictures from start to finish!

    that looks amazing after 1 the process man!

  9. Barber trip post SMP

    sup man...u should be all good to go to a barber shop.....if there's anything I would avoid, perhaps tell him not to use any straight blade on your head for now.
  10. What does an SMP head feel like?

    You talkin' bout me, mate? Why thank you dear sir, you're far too kind =P
  11. Maintenance after SMP

    yo dude.....maintenance after SMP is pretty simple man....after the "curing" period, what I mean is after 30 days, all you need to do is shave your head on a regular basis, and put lotion/moisturizers on your scalp after shaving and you're good to go. There are guidelines on maintenance within the first 30 days which you can find here:

    another point that we've spoken about on and off is the fact that SMP has been around over 10 years now but has, and will continue to be, a secret weapon to hair loss no matter the exposure. Why? Because the average person who has hair, will never fixate on someone's "shaved" head and question whether or not it's tattoo'd on unless you have a botched SMP or a super straight hairline that looks unnatural.
  13. bro congrats on the new do.....looks amazing and organic!
  14. Toronto clinic

    Hey pal, Welcome to the forum and congrats on taking the first step in SMP! Check out my progress thread here: Where abouts are you in Toronto? If time permits, I have no problems meeting up for a quick chat and help answer any questions/concerns you may have. Vin
  15. I just got some DE from Amazon arrived in the mail today, tried some on the scalp after shower and wow this shit is legit! I can't speak to how long it last during the course of the day just yet, but it definitely takes the shine away.
