There is no need to be concerned. What you are experiencing is a normal and expected part of the process.

 

After each session your skin exfoliates, resulting in your scalp shedding small pieces of skin and scabs created by the treatment. During this process the dots become smaller and lighter, however in the meantime the patchy effect you describe usually occurs. This will correct itself as your scalp continues to exfoliate.

 

I just saw Ian in the corridor at HQ. He has asked me to pass his reassurances onto you. From what I understand, your skin was particularly dry and is therefore likely to exfoliate a little more. Ian mentioned that you will almost certainly need a third session, however in the meantime there is no need to worry. When your skin has finished exfoliating your scalp will not look patchy anymore, and you'll be ready for your third session as and when you'd like to book it.

Exfoliation is usually complete within 7-10 days, but it can vary from person to person. The shrinking and lightening effect can take a couple of months to complete overall, but you'll be comfortable to be in social situations after just a few days or even less

I would like to ask if skin will exfoliate after third session or not because now pigments are very light in colour and barely visible due to the tone of my scalp colour.Today i will post some pics after shaving with clippers.

Update.......

Below are pics after 6 days of my second session, redness completely gone and most of the scabs have fallen.In my opinion there is little bit of blending issue.I will be definitely ask for darker pigments in my third session.

Damien,please show these pics to Ian and tell me what he thinks and also give me your opinions.post-264805-0-87335300-1383670279_thumb.jpg

I don't think you'll find you need to go darker it looks dark already, you need to r91 (face shaver) your hair down so there's no 3d to your hair it will remove that contrast of sides to top and you'll see it'll blend better together maybe you'll fade a lot in the next 3 weeks but going off what I can see currently its too dark at present and you need to cut your hair properly, if it becomes patchy yes you'll need the 3rd session like 95% of people do. You can see where you've buzzed hair in these pictures, that's your problem, with your level of Norwood (6) you have to crop your hair with something that goes shorter than a set of clippers, men with slick bald area's cant buzz the hair and get away with it, its going to look off, wet shaving is the best option, if you don't like the idea of wet shaving with a razor, a r91 would be your tool of choice.

thinhair  I'll give you my honest opinion, keep in mind I'm not an expert nor a professional. No matter how many dots are added and how dark the ink is, smp will not blend with your current hair length. Hair is way too long and to be honest I think you ve already gone too dark with the ink and have excessive density. If I were you I would not add any more dots and wait for it to settle and then take it from there.

I dont think he's gone too dark at all guys. Bear in mind those pigments still have some fading to do, so I think shade selection is exactly right. Time will tell.

 

I do believe there is a blending issue, but this is being caused by your hair being too long. You need to shave it down. Clippers are insufficient in your case. Use a razor or an electric beard shaver.

 

Third session? Probably, but you need to allow a few weeks for the pigments to settle so we can establish what you need.

Thank you all for your valuable advice.One thing first is sure that i have to short my current hair length.So tomorrow i will post some more pics after shorten it more.But one thing is also true that having asian skin tone, darker colour pigments will suits me more.

Hi thin hair.  Based on the pictures you posted, I'm afraid I have to agree with username.  Your SMP looks like one solid color, no dots.  I hope it's truly not solid, and that it's just poor picture quality.

 

Can you see spacing between dots or does your SMP look solid?  When you get a chance can you post some new, higher-quality pictures?  I wish you luck bro.

I think you'll find the issue is lack of detail in the photos. Ranbir has been treating clients since 2002, so theres no way thats one solid colour

Hi and sorry for not posting since 2 days.First let me confirm you that my smp did not look solid colour.It looks very small dots in which there is very little space between each dots.So i think it is because of my side and back hairs are very dense and Ranbir tries to match smp with the density of my real hair.But some where i am not satisfied with the colour,may be that will be rectified in my third session.But first i will give it 4 weeks to settle.Below are some pics post 9 days and fresh shaved.

It's looking much much better from your initial pictures. Can I ask what you used to cut your hair because I feel if it was shorter still then it would blend better at the least until your next session.

I think you should try an electric shaver or a wet shave the night before, so it has time to grow a little during the night, so it's not bare skin, rather than just using clippers which seems to leave it that little bit too long. Trust me, bite the bullet and do it. I don't think going much darker will be better. I think the shade now looks dark enough even with extra fading.

I think everyone needs the 3 rd session ... I've just had a little touch up session 9 days ago and my new dots stand out loads , give it time to settle .... Also remember mate , this takes away the old hair line and looks like you have SHAVED YOUR HAIR WITH A GOOD HAIR LINE ... You don't want to DARK , it will look fake ... relax mate , keep it shaved every day and wait for your final treatment .. To make it perfect .. Good luck
