my 1st treatment, bit confused/worried maybe

Recommended Posts

So I had my first treatment done and I'm a bit confused and worried. I'm new here but I've searched and read a few threads already about how it looks after the first treatment and I'm not sure if I should be happy or worried.

I'm 33 years old and asked for a slightly higher hairline so it would look natural for my age, so my practitioner said they usually use 4 fingers from the eyebrows and that's where the hairline should start.

Never really had a low hairline and showed a picture of me when I still had hair, so she created a hairline but after I came home I noticed it's quite low actually and it's also not 4 fingers high.

If I look in the mirror I feel like a 16 year old boy is staring at me, which might be good for some but I'm not sure this will fit me.

You can obviously lower the line during the second or third session but is there a way back when it's already too low?

 

I also noticed some of the dots look way bigger/darker compared to others, do they all fade and shrink the same way or will the bigger/darker ones remain bigger and darker?

 

And last, my natural hair color is a mixed blonde/light brown when it was longer and the dots are quite dark right now so you can see from a mile away something isn't right when you look at the side and rear of my head compared to the top.

 How long does it take for the dots to start fading a bit? If it doesn't fade enough, can the whole thing be made lighter?

 

Looking forward to reading some opinions as I'm a bit worried atm...

I wish i could answer your questions mate, it looks ok to me apparently when it all settles down after a week or so it starts to look more natural, ive got my consultation booked for next week, did your practitioner not give you all the info you needed????

Wrinkles are fine, still way below my hairline. Kinda getting used to the hairline, it just really surprised me I look that much younger with a lower hairline.

 

I'm still worried about the color, seems to be a whole lot darker compared to my natural stubble.

When does it start fading? Next week is my 2nd treatment, if it hasn't faded would it help if I asked for a lighter color to blend in?

Some feedback about this would be greatly appreciated!

I think the high hairline to match age theory is a bit overplayed. Most people don't bald by their hairline movining backwards, it's thinning all over. Personally I think some of the "worse" results are dense high hairlines, your eyes are drawn to the huge forehead!

I have big hands and if I travel four fingers from my eyebrows I am halfway to the crown.

I'm with TippedJungle, from your pictures it looks OK. Maybe it was just the shock of a younger version staring back at you... are you upping your estimate from the previous 16?

Yes, I have to admit I was a bit shocked at first. My hair has grown a little longer now (about 5 days since I shaved and it's only 2mm now, seems to grow really slow) and the sides and rear are getting a more similar shade now, but the smp on top is still a bit too dark so I'll ask if it can be blended with something a bit less dark. My gf also told me it's starting to look better now so I'm hoping for the best in the next few sessions.

I'm blonde and if I shave my head it looks like I almost have no hair left on sides and back, it's also not very dense but it's always been like that. So I hope I can get away with leaving it at around 1.5-2mm using clippers so I can match the top shade, otherwise it will look ridicilous I think (top darker, sides and rear very light after shave).

Anyone else does his hair with clippers? Or does everyone just shave it off each and every day?

Can't wait for my second and third session, hope to see some good results in a few weeks.

 

I'll keep you updated.

Clippers with an extension on it to leave it a little longer or did you use them directly to the skin?

I did try with the clippers directly to the skin and kinda failed, missed a lot of hair, had to go over some areas like 7-8 times or more and all this while I don't really like the feeling of the clippers going over my head... Got tired of it and shaved the rest of my head with a razor. Ordered a Braun broom package now which includes basically everything I need I think, clippers with extensions from 0.2mm to 2.1mm + longer ones as well (pretty sure these will never be used), head can also be changed to a foil razor which is included.

At the moment it's a bit trial and error for me as I've never shaven my head before the treatment so I'll have to find the best way that works for me.

I am sure you will find shaving your head is an improvement on whatever routine you had to follow prior to SMP.  I still find wet shaving my head quite a therapeutic thing to do, time sees me use the Headblade more often that not but I still wet shave regularly... the Headblade will miss the odd hair, and having missed it seems to struggle to get it once it is over a certain length. So the occasional wet shave is a necessity to avoid sprouting several of these.
