I just got home from my second session in Chicago. Here's the story:
I started losing my hair about 15 years ago so I decided to buzz off what i had left. I often wore hats and used Toppik when I wasn't. After awhile I didn't have enough hair so I stopped using the toppik and started going au natural. I wasn't happy about it but it was what it was and I learned to except it.
About two months ago a noticed a small ad for His Hair on a website (don't remember which one) and clicked on it. I never heard of SMP before but spent the next few hours reading up on it. His Hair certainly seemed like the top place to have it done. The next day I had a phone consolation and set up an appointment to have my 1st treatment.
When I arrived at the building I walked up to the second floor and gave the suite number then the guard gave me a pass. When I walked into the 10th floor office it was just the practitioner, no secretaries or other clients, just us. I soon learned that he himself had the work done. It was great to see it in person and reassuring because his looked so good. He was an awesome guy who really knew his stuff. My major was concern was about it looking natural. He was even more concerned about it looking natural than I was. I didn't feel like just another client, it was like he felt personally responsible that I didn't end up looking silly. He really seems to care about his work, he's an artist and my head is his canvas.
The process took about two and a half hours. Was it painful? At times it was but most of the time it wasn't, and when it was painful it was fleeting. When he stopped the pain stopped and we took several breaks so it wasn't really that bad. When he finished I couldn't believe it. I never thought I would see myself with hair again. And it does feel like hair. It doesn't feel like a cover up, it feels like it's my hair.
I told sister what I had done and showed her pictures. Her reaction was she didn't realize I was even going bald. She said it looked totally natural. At day 5 I had lunch with friends. No one blinked an eye or said anything, and I would have noticed. Here's the best part: I met a girl the week before i had my 1st treatment. The first night she massaged my head for an hour. A few days later she did the same again, she enjoys it and I wasn't complaining. Now the real test: I had the work done and I was seeing her 5 days after. Her only reaction "I forgot how cute you are", thats it! She massaged my head again. I even took a picture of myself at the park and sent to my family, again no reactions.
Today I had my second session. It looked incredible the first time, now it looks even better. After a few days the dots got smaller and it faded a bit, in a good way. I never looked in the mirror more often and have never taken a selfie before, now I take them all the time. I'm one of those narcissistic assholes now lol.
I feel like a new person. This has been an awesome experience. I feel like I want to walk up to every bald guy I see and tell them about HHC. If your on the fence I couldn't recommend it more.
Here are a few pics, they were taken right after the first visit. I'll post some of the second treatment in a few days.
