  1. I flew to Toronto for all my appointments and arrived to my appointment one time in particular and the door was locked. After that I was always scared that the practitioner would no show my appointment and I would have wasted my plane fare and hotel costs. I am still beyond stunned that His Hair allowed this practitioner to represent them in Canada. I want this matter resolved and my smp finished correctly. We all deserve to get what we paid for and it is not our fault their practitioner was incapable of doing a proper smp.
  2. I had also talked with His recently on the phone and they had specified that they are looking to replace the last practitioner but they currently do not a have a physical address on where the new clinic will be located in Toronto. I would hope that they have this situation sorted out very soon and I do not want to be left in limbo with an unfinished smp that cost me thousands of dollars while I still have to wear a hat. Every time I look in the mirror it is a constant reminder and a slap in the face of having a dud practitioner who just could not get it done right. I gave that last practitioner way too many chances to finish my smp because I trusted His and I now feel rather foolish for allowing him to do my smp without him having the proper skill set. I want to see a His practitioner that is qualified in Toronto by at least August to finally get this nightmare over with and to get peace of mind.
  3. I am under the belief that all practitioners are not created equal. Some quite honestly are just dot layers and some are artists.
  4. The practitioner was basically pissed about having to do touch up sessions on his unfinished work that never took.I was supposed to get 2 hours of treatment a session and he had me out the door in 40 minutes which included the set up time He was miserable and rushed thorough the sessions and it was very awkward to have an angry practitioner working on me. Very unprofessional and beyond stressful.. I am happy that you posted about your experience because I thought that I was the only one that had this type of awful experience in Toronto.
  5. What happened to you happened the exact same way with me. This practitioner would never go dense enough or dark enough to get a consistent look which matched the sides and back of my head. I had to talk to His Hair in Birmingham on multiple occasions to get this practitioner to go with a much darker shade of pigmentation and to correct the lack of density .This practitioner had me in and out of the Toronto office within 40 minutes for my last 2 appointments and went as fast as he could to just get rid of me. Any time that I would point out problem areas where the density was way too thin the practitioner would get very defensive and say that I am going to have a painted on look and that I would be ruining the job that was already on my head. He kept saying that it was good enough already. It was really awkward going to my last 2 sessions where the practitioner was still not able to correct my smp. The tension was very noticeable and my stress level was through the roof. I just want the finished look of a quality His Hair smp that I paid for and that everyone else is getting in other countries from His hair.
  6. His Hair has to send their UK practitioners to Canada. Your results from your 2 sessions is way better than my results from multiple sessions that I got in Toronto, Ontario Canada. Congrats on getting quality work from a good practitioner.
  7. The clients that were able to get their work done by the UK practitioner in Toronto before he left a couple years ago were very fortunate. I am still surprised that the last Canadian practitioner in Toronto was working on his own considering that I do not feel that he was experienced enough to achieve quality work or represent their company. The most disappointing thing about this is that many members in other countries got quality smp procedures completed in just 2 or 3 sessions when clients in Canada are over 3 sessions and still not done and have no clue if or when it will ever be completed. For the $4000 it cost me for this procedure I do not feel what I got is completed or worth what I paid.
  8. It is better to call His Hair than to wait for a reply to an email. It definitely seems that they are having trouble getting another practitioner to relocate to Toronto. I hope that they can have another practitioner in Toronto within the next 3 months to sort out the smp procedures done by the prior practitioner that has since left. If however the Toronto clinic remains on permanent hiatus the only other alternative is travel to the United States and have another His Hair practitioner complete the procedure.
  9. His went out of their way for me but the Toronto practitioner was just not able to get my smp finished to a high standard that their company is known for. It has been a very stressful experience and very expensive to travel to Toronto for the multiple treatments that I needed. The treatments were always too light and the horseshoe pattern could easily be seen in all lighting which was very concerning. I only wish that I could have traveled to the UK to get my smp completed by one of their amazing practitioners but it is just way too far for me to travel. I am happy to get my smp done at His but I want to have the confidence knowing that I am getting a skilled and experienced practitioner to perform and finish my treatment.
  10. Toronto location?

    I pray that His can bring in a quality practitioner from the UK to the Toronto location. I still need my smp corrected and finished to the His quality level of standard.
  11. I have had to get multiple sessions performed in Toronto due to a ton of fading and the pigment shade never blending to get a decent match. I assumed that it was mostly a combination of my strong immune system and an inexperienced practitioner. I am in your boat and do not feel that my SMP is finished to the quality standard of what His guarantees. His however has always s been first class with me when it comes to communication but they should of had more than one practitioner in Toronto..
  12. Ink for a Norwood 6

    I am right around a Norwood 6. I believe that the first session that I originally had was a pigmentation shade of 26 to 28 which was very light once healed. In my personal opinion practitioners tend to play it really safe within the first session to see how your body will absorb the pigmentation.
  13. Ink for a Norwood 6

    Being a Norwood 6 you will get good coverage on treatment 1 with a lighter shade of pigmentation. The 2nd session was major density for me and very noticeable that I had work done 2 days after the treatment.
  14. Opinions about the SMP hue

    With a few more sessions the smp should be more consistent and camouflage a bit better. Based on your one picture there are multiple areas on top of your head (lighter areas) that need to be gradually filled in with a slightly darker pigment which will then match your existing hair on the sides. It is definitely fixable with a good practitioner that works with you to get the finished look that you desire.
  15. SMP progress

    7 days after your smp procedure is pretty much when you will see what the shade of pigmentation the practitioner applied will actually look like in comparison to your real hair. If your practitioner can not figure out the correct shade of pigmentation the smp will never match your natural existing hair and you will need multiple sessions to complete the finished look.
