  1. Yesterday
  2. I am between my second and third treatment. I have three moles on my head that I keep cutting. Or I keep cutting my head trying to avoid cutting them! I want to get them removed and am wondering if it would be best to do this before my third and, hopefully, final treatment. If so, how long should I wait for the removal spots to heal before the third and last session? Thanks in advance!
  3. Earlier
  4. Sunblock / sunscreen

    Thanks baldy-locks, will have a look at that one too. By the way the shine wasn't the only undesirable outcome following my summer holiday, I believe there was a bit of fading too. The third session has rectified that so I won't want it to happen again
  5. Yea really pleased, as you say blend is much better and shine level seems to be similar to post 2nd session now. Will see how it goes over the next few months then make a call on what to do. There are a couple of minor tweaks I might still like to do, so I'll probably end up doing the 4th session (especially since it's free), but will leave it until new year.
  6. Sunblock / sunscreen

    Try this GM68... I used it in Greece this year... it doesn’t dull shine, but it’s really dry-touch on the skin like I’ve said before, only thing to dull shine is PTR or to some extent MoM
  7. Light brown hair and unevenly greying

    Looking good mate. Blend looks spot on 👍🏻
  8. Sunblock / sunscreen

    Following session 3 the shine seems to have receded further and seems to be quite close to where I was before my holiday in the summer - even immediately after washing my head. Just back from Austria where we had summer-like temperatures and sunshine - but being unable to use sunblock so soon after my 3rd session I just wore a baseball hat. Off for a week in the Canaries at the end of November and may just do same. Although it's possible I could be tempted to experiment with an alternative sunblock or two, not sure yet.... it's not so much for walking about in the sun, it's more for swimming - where a hat is inconvenient/impractical.....
  9. Here are some photos post session 3. Taken today, so 12 days after the session. And more or less straight after a foil shave and shower (in that order). I took these in same bathroom lighting as before, although they seem to have come out a bit darker (not especially easy, this taking good photos of your own head business). I think this is my least favourite lighting - to me SMP has always looked better outside (but I wanted to show the less flattering lighting condition, and anyway it's raining today ).
  10. No scrubbing or alcohol on head ?

    Because skin is porous and some solvents, presumably including alcohol, can penetrate it. Also as I understand it HIS pigments are inserted less deep in the skin than traditional tattoos.
  11. Will get some up, may be a bit of a delay though, off on my travels again tomorrow - going off radar for another bit. Also my head is still patchy reddish and the new treatment is still quite dark. The pics will look better once it settles - for my first two sessions that was at about 5 days.
  12. Anyone in Stoke-on-Trent

    Hi, Considering the procedure would like to meet someone in Stoke-on-Trent or surrounding area who has had the treatment, I've previously had a hair transplant and so would be really interested to meet someone in a similar position. Tony

    Interested to see some pics mate
  14. Quick summary of my 3rd session today at HIS Birmingham. On arrival was informed that my practitioner (Ranbir) was sick! Was offered an alternative practitioner (happy to use name if allowed but perhaps not relevant). Was mildly concerned, but having travelled for the session I wasn't exactly going to refuse Started by chatting about the fading/shine that happened over the course of my holiday during the summer. Not sure we identified any particular cause of the fading, although I think there was a feeling that the shine may have been caused by the mosturising effect of the sunblock. He didn't think my head was very shiny, but that may have been because I foil-shaved last night after washing, which may have removed some of the shine. He recommended Loreal anti-shine gel moisturiser as a cheaper alternative to PTR, if needed to manage the shine. With the above in mind I may be more inclined to use a hat during my next sunshine holiday, currently scheduled for the end of November..... So on to session #3, which we both agreed definitely needed done. The plan was to first of all break up the hairline a bit more with a few light dots. For this the shade used was 58 (same as the lighter shade used during session #2). The same shade was also used to add density immediately behind the hairline. Further back shade 46 was used to fill in the area between two dark patches of actual thick hair on either side - this shade was very slightly darker than the darker shade used in session #2, and was used all the way back to the horseshoe. Finally blending was done into the sides/rear and some pale patches on the sides were bolstered up. My practitioner thought a 4th session may possibly be needed for the finishing touches, but that all in all it looked much more 'finished' after today's session. Let's see what it looks like when it settles - the good news is that any 4th session will only cost the price of a cheap flight
  15. sorry but this company is a scam, you even mention the toronto clinic and the issues toronto clients are facing they stop responding immediately. Complete BS. Zero acknowledgement of what happened, zero ownership of their fault in the issues with the sole canadian location and i'm sure several pissed off clients like myself who got a terrible SMP from Practitioner who's name started with S. Absolutely no effort on their part to rectify it for us via refund or through a free touch up with a more experienced technician. DO NOT use this company for your SMP, simply put. I understand they may have great practitioners in the UK etc.. But bottom line is if they're willing to scam customers like this in one country, they absolutely will do so in another. Can't even get a call or email back from them. Why even promise us the free one year warranty touch up session if you're going to absolutely ghost us?
  16. From where I am located in Canada I have to travel to get my smp procedure done. I made a huge mistake originally going to Toronto to get my procedure done when I should have just went to Birmingham in the first place where the the skill level of the practitioner is at its highest. The recent procedure that I had done at the Birmingham His by the talented skilled practitioner was night and day compared to the inferior work I had done at the Toronto His. I was very relieved and very stress free after leaving the appointment in Birmingham. It cost me a little more to get my smp done by travelling to the United Kingdom but it was definitely worth every penny in the end.
  17. Soften Hairline Pics

    It's been almost 7 years since my first sesh, how time flies. Well I have aged since then and want to soften up my hairline and have a more natural look. Have you guys softened your hairline after SMP? Please share your photos, experiences, and advice. Thank you!
  18. I'm glad that worked out for you but personally the cost of going all the way there plus having to then pay for the treatment to correct what they did incorrectly is not feasible for me. I just want a refund, I feel confident that with the money I get back that I can find another talented practitioner in the GTA if not a little further. It's a shame HIS wont help even if I call the Birmingham line to ask to speak to administration regarding a refund.
  19. Contact His Birmingham in regards to an appointment and they will get back to you. Pay to have your procedure completed. His Toronto is a ghost and just move on because it will put you in a better place mentally. I was sick of looking in the mirror at what the former Toronto practitioner did to my head and I said enough is enough and wanted to get this sorted out. You will not regret going to Birmingham because it is well worth it to see the artist that they have working there
  20. That's great how were you able to organize that without the company being responsive whatsoever to the Canadian clients? I have continually been trying and same old BS. We definitely should not have to pay for that and I am hesitant to deal with this company ever again because if they can screw over clients in one country and take zero accountability for it, then they can surely do it in another. Like seriously not so much as an e-mail, message, phone call to address the situation for months on end is unjustifiable.
  21. I recently went to His Hair in Birmingham, England and they went out of their way to finish my smp correcting the work of the former Toronto practitioner. They are 100% professional at the Birmingham location and the smp technician was very talented at concealing the horseshoe pattern with proper density. The quality of their work is amazing in Birmingham and I am happy that I stepped it up and went to the UK to get quality work done by an artist. I had to pay for the session and I have no regrets because I finally have peace of mind. I am really looking forward to this session healing up and not having to wear a hat 24/7
  22. Newbie: Will SMP work?

    Take a look at what 2mm had done. Your hair loss looks pretty close to his and I think his is the best result of anyone I've seen online.
  23. Nope. It genuinely didn't - not before my holiday anyway (see earlier posts).
  24. Newbie: Will SMP work?

    Best thing to do is go for a consultation👍 Might even be able to have it over FaceTime
  25. Newbie: Will SMP work?

    Hi all, New to the group and looking to advice. I wondered whether those who are still in the process of balding could get SMP? I’ve attached an image of the top of my head facing a window. As you can see I have miniaturisation all over, but still have some sort of a hairline. This is 5 days growth (my hair grows annoyingly quick and the horseshoe part is also quite thick). I usually BIC my head right down and have done for 2 years now (I’m 31). I basically want to have a buzzed look with a complete hairline. After discovering SMP my missus filled in my hairline with her make-up (manliest evening of my life) but I really liked how it looked. I wasn’t sure however if SMP would be applicable to someone who is still losing their hair as I am. Would they do the whole head and allow my natural hair to grow through or just do it around the hair? Sorry if this question is stupid..
  26. Light brown hair and unevenly greying

    You’ve got no hair on your head. Of course it’s going to shine. Own it;-)
  27. Yea I'm not overly concerned about the cost of touch-ups, although I'd hope not to be back within 2 years! I agree, I have 2 session left to get it the way I want it, within the orignal quoted cost. I think it will be fine. By the way the shine doesn't seem to be going away any further.
