Hello everyone!<div>Long long long time lurker in the forums. Used to follow the forums when HisHair was only in the UK.  At that time I was seriously considering flying to UK to have my MHT done, glad they opened up in Los Angeles saved me time and money hahah.</div><div>This is my first post though, needed to clear up some issues of lighting on the forum. Let me know what you guys think</div><div></div><div>First off a little about me. I was one of the first people to get mht from the Los Angeles clinic in Sept of 2011. I've had 4 sessions so far. #1 and #2 from Sam, #3 from Matt and number #4 from Aldemar. My crown keeps fading a little plus Im a norwood 7-8 lol almost no hair at all so the reason for so many sessions.</div><div></div><div>This has been seriously one of the best things I have done for myself. HisHair has been nothing but professional and always was there to help when I had concerns of fading and my MHT not matching in the beginning.</div><div></div><div>Ive noticed that MHT looks better and better after each session. I think the more sessions  you have the better the final result will be, even under harsh or the dreaded bathroom light. </div><div></div><div>I wanted to provide some pictures under these situations to show how MHT holds up with someone that has had it for almost a year now and 4 sessions .</div><div></div><div>So I used my 7D canon and a 50mm f/1.4 lens to get a better detail than an iPhone. The harsh light comes from a super bright fluorescent light I have in my hallway. I took the pictures directly under the light.</div>

That looks really really good.  Seamless!  The line you've drawn is a good idea; just goes to show how good it looks now!


1st Treatment: 31st Oct 2012.
2nd Treatment: 7th Nov 2012.

3rd Treatment: 5th Jan 2013.
4th Treatment: 28th Feb 2013
5th Treatment: 5th June 2013.
6th Treatment: 30th October 2013.

MHT requires patience, perspective and courage.

I was genuinely surprised when I saw where your real was. It looks great in bright lighting, it has a very similar shade to mine so I assumed you'd be around a norwood 3. Looks brilliant.


Three treatments so far, may need a fourth depending on how the ink settles

Looks nice that King. Koudos to Sam & Matt also for this treatment, and it shows whoever treats you, you will get a great job.  I actually find my head looks better under a fluorescent light for some reason? I think the toughest light is sunlight. Great job.

Thanks guys, its been a great journey. Thanks to all that have worked on my head at HisHair. I just have to say I totally understand that this is a process and it takes a while to achieve the look. But once it is finished its is amazing!


@safron yes I wet shave against the grain every day. But even when my hair starts to grow for a day it still looks fine. 

@damien Im glad to finally get the famous DAMIEN welcome hahah Ive read so many of your comments I practically feel like Ive known you for years

@skinheadboi thank you. I have followed your journey on the forums for awhile also. I agree sometimes my head even looks more defined in certain fluorescent lighting. Sunlight looks good on my head also. The only lighting I do see some problems is the yellow bathroom lighting. But very minimal.

Thanks again guys and hopefully this helps out anyone on the fence thinking about getting MHT. Its a process but once you complete it, its amazing!!

Haha, its gets like that. Sometimes you get so involved with the people on here, its like a circle of friends. Can only be a good thing. Anything you need just ask
