  1. Sunblock / sunscreen

    Hi gm68-How did the transition from concealered scalp to SMP go? I'm using Couvre and Toppick on my scalp and it hasn't seen the sun for a decade. Did you tan your head prior to SMP? No one sees me without concealer so I don't really want to walk around bald to tan my scalp.
  2. Need feedback

    Honestly, I don't really see it. Looks like you got a great result. I would not worry about it.
  3. Wow! An amazing result. The recession would make me think you shaved it because you were starting to thin out a bit. No one would give it a suspicious look. Congrats!
  4. Exactly how does SMP fade? (Not, "Does SMP fade")

    Ed-Thanks for you response. That's helpful as far as long term fading is concerned. I feel the best way for me to transition from using concealers is to get SMP. My plan after that would be to let it fade over time so people just think I went bald. I think it would be preferable compared to going from my current state (hair full of concealers) to bald right away.
  5. Exactly how does SMP fade? (Not, "Does SMP fade")

    Ed-Does the pigment fade in a manner that would mimic typical male pattern baldness? I'm interested in finding a way out of the concealer/smp game eventually. Not sure I want the shaved look in my 60s or 70s.
  6. First session smp

    Hey Fred-You should put the pics back up. There are plenty of people on the site that will help you and won't judge. My "hair" is pretty much 100% concealers so I've been down the same road as you. I will be getting SMP sometime this year.
  7. Another Sweating Question

    Thanks for your response. That’s pretty helpful. I’ll do what I can to avoid sweating but it’s going to happen. I do wonder how people follow the restrictions in the summer in certain areas of the country. Sometimes a walk to the car will make you break a sweat.
  8. Another Sweating Question

    Like some others, I've been trying to find the right window of time to plan my SMP. I'm planning on taking a week's vacation in August in the Southern US. My original plan was to do the following-- Session 1-7/27 Work at home from 7/30-8/3 Session 2-8/3 Vacation from 8/6 and return to work on 8/13. My only worry is that my vacation will be in the southern US with potential temps in the 80s and 90s. We will be sending a lot of time outdoors. I will take precautions to avoid sun and keep my head covered, The one thing I can’t avoid is the heat. I imagine that sweating will be unavoidable. Do I postpone the procedure due to this or is sweating a minor issue in the grand scheme of things?
  9. First Session Done in Birmingham.

    Looks like a good start! Best wishes for a great final result.
  10. Should you wait until 3rd session to rock your SMP?

    If it takes 30 days to "rock" SMP then it's game over for a lot of us. No way I could take 30 days off from work.
  11. Finally Did it

    Wow! Love this result. I don't think anyone would give this a suspicious look. Not sure how old you are but the hairline seems in great position and people would maybe think you've got a little recession and that's they reason why you've shaved it down. Congrats!!
  12. Pool Owners, Beach Vacations?

    Thanks! I've seen conflicting reports in this forum. Some are concerned walking to their car from work and at least one person has gotten a pretty deep tan after SMP. Glad to hear you were about to enjoy the hot Cuban sun with a little precaution and not experience any fading. That's what I'm looking for...leaving behind the careful preparation involved hair fibers and avoiding sweating/water. Tired of caring so much about every hair having to be in exact place to pull of an illusion.
  13. Pool Owners, Beach Vacations?

    How do people handle going into pools or going to the beach? Are you slapping on a ton of sunscreen or wearing a hat in the pool? I really would like to ditch my ballcap but sun exposure seems to be a real problem. Any thoughts?
  14. Seems like you are barely outside during the weekday. I doubt a couple minutes of sun is going to have any impact.
  15. Question about the illusion of hair

    Thanks for your response SMP4me. I think we have similar thoughts on this. I'm 41 years old and I would expect someone my age would be getting a little thin and maybe have a couple of scars accumulated through the years. Very few people my age have 100% full heads of hair. Typically some temple recession or thinning in the crown or general thinning. As long as I can get my provider to understand and it doesn't take away from the illusion, then that's the look I will be going for.
