What kind of sorcery is this?

Recommended Posts

 

Thanks to VinnyDiesel and The Bald Ego for the reassuring words and helpful tips during the emotional roller coaster. You were right, gentlemen, the issues were "IN" my head, not "ON". Gracias, Señores!)

Hey NonDescript, your brilliant post made my day.

 

Very happy for you. You're welcome, of course!

...  goes to show that people are far too concerned with their own lives and their own looks to count the follicles on your head, and to save the results in their memory. 

 

True, brother.  However, it weren't just the casual Johns and Marys and Peters who greet me with 'hi, good morning, have a nice day' on the elevator or the coffee station.  Three or four of them were people close to me at work, one was a family member, and ... my wife!  That was what blew me away.   

 

I have a theory.  See, I wet shave or zero clipper my head for years.  The longest I kept my hair was two days after wet shaving.  I was never, or very rarely, seen with a thick horseshoe.  So, the common reaction was I am finally letting my head grow some stubble.  No doubt in my mind that I would be found out instantly if folks were used to seeing me looking like Cheech Marin for so long, then one day I showed up with closely shaved sides and dark top.

This is for "Neo"...his 1st post on this thread...

They offer a temporary SMP, eh

Super light shade of ink

I think its like a #50 shade..or maybe higher?

#2 or #0 being the absolute darkest you can go...which is very rare I think

Most people are around #20 - #10?

Depending on race/skin tone

So getting a #50 will only stay dark for just a lil while...then basically fade to nothing/super super light grey

Call them and ask about it

Don't know the exact details

It will give you a good chance to stare at urself in the mirror for a lil while...and see if you like it...yet not permament

I just assume the cost is the same...or close to it...cause its still the exact same work being done in lets say an average 2 hr session??

So if ya got some extra cash to burn...try that route maybe...pay for 1 session...might rid you of your doubts

I think youll be a believer after just the 1st session

The dots look dark and big at first...but fade and shrink to nice small dots

Just tell them you want nice small dots and a natural hairline...and you cant go wrong

Everything after that can be tweaked to your liking (lil lower hairline, more density, darker shades)

Just easy does it...best advice

Better to go easy and maybe have to end up paying for an extra session...than going too dense and too dark in one sitting;S you wont like it!

And it might look fake (too dense, too sharp of hairline, too dark, etc)

But even if that happens...there are ways to fade it slighty

Sun exposure/tanning beds, creams with alcohol in them, swimming in chlorinated water, etc

So fading a shade or two aint that big of a deal either

You don't always have to panic and run straight to the laser clinic

It fades naturally over the first few months anyways...so be patient as well...but I know its hard to be!

This proves my point that it doesn't match a fresh wet shave. AT BEST I think you can hope to match 12 to 16 hours growth. Also when it looks like you're "growing some stubble"and you have nothing on top it's a disaster when a female rubs your head and puts two and two together. I understand this isn't a deal breaker for many people and they would rather deal with this than not get it done. That's cool. I really hope you get great treatments. As far as guys wearing makeup I don't know about that. I don't know what kind of guys you're talking about. Anyhow the cure for baldness has been found. It's official. A Japanese doctor and some other big names have it figured out. Human trials start in 2018 and hopefully by 2020 people can start to fork out the cash for it. Google if you don't believe me. I've been hitting the gym super hard and got my head tan so the contrast isn't that bad with a wet shave. I still haven't ruled this treatment out but it's gone down to about 20 percent. Mainly because I don't want a stubble look but want to match a completely fresh wet shaved look. Positive vibes to all those getting a treatment or looking to get a treatment. Also to those who have gotten a treatment. I truly hope you received the results you were looking for. I have seen some great pictures on here. God bless everyone.

Is the reason that SMP isn't advertised on TV etc like transplants because they want to keep it sort of a secret for the benefit of people who got the treatment?

The more common knowledge it is that this treatment is available, the more the general public will look at skinheads and question if it's shaved hair or SMP.

Would I be right in thinking this?

I guess. But only in the same way that you might look at someone with great looking hair and wonder if its a hair system. I don't think the fact that hair transplant surgeons have only recently started to advertise on terrestrial tv here in the UK has had anything to do with a desire to keep quiet about them.
