Just a few hours ago I decided to go ahead with the treatment. I had a consultation in London with Damon in July but am sick of looking rubbish so have decided to go for it. Only issue is I live in Asia, so I will be going to the HK clinic.[p]
I have been balding since about 16, but have always got away with it until about 22 (I am 26 now). The last year it has taken a turn for the worse as I have been under a lot of stress. It has got to the point now where I want to shave it all off (my clippers are charged and ready) - but I am thinking that I will wait until I go to HIS to do that so that the transformation is less. I have also just started a new job, so no-one really knows me yet.[p]
I used minoxidil successfully(!) through university and looked great and grew back a lot of my hair, but after a while it started disappearing again.[p]
I thought about transplants but they are simply too expensive, and very few look great.
I thought about hair pieces and I was very close to getting one, but having something stuck on my head would be odd, and although it may look amazing, I know I would always worry if I would be spotted.[p]
After considering these options I basically gave up and accepted I would have to shave my head, but just didn't have the guts to do it quite yet. Then I came across HIS and I had read about this type of thing before and though, this must be some ridiculous joke and how on earth can it look good. But I got on the forums, delved deeper and booked a consultation!
I am now waiting back for an email to see if I can have this all done before September, when I have a big public speaking event to speak at.[p]
I will post everything here about it all - reading through others has really given me confidence that this will work and look great - and will mean I spend no time worrying about my hair, whereas now I think of it all the time - it has come to a head when it is affecting my life too much.[p]
Here is a picture a couple of months back (its dark, bad quality and only the front - I am too afraid to take a picture of the back, as I know there isn't much there and worry about what it looks like).[p][p]
I will go for a very soft hairline, I would like it looking as natural as possible, and a straight hair line would not suit me.[p]
