  1. Light brown hair and unevenly greying

    That’s the question I’ve been asked the most “why do you shave your hair off, when you’ve got a full head” I respond with, grey curly hair isn’t for me 😆 that also brings me on to shine... In my head, I’m like, why would you want a bald shiny head when you appear to have a good head of hair ! wet shave, rotary or foil my head still shines like a mirror, so I have to use PTR everyday!!
  2. Light brown hair and unevenly greying

    My opinion on smp is (and I’ve had it for around 2 years now) it’s less hassle for me just shaving everyday than styling my hair to cover my receding parts (Nw 3 high hairline, no hair loss on crown area). But the killer for me is shine! Something that never entered my head. Yes there are products to reduce it, but these don’t last all day. I’ve never been able to accept it and just get on with it. (Wish I could, then smp for me would be 💯) I think the problem for me, stems from looking in the mirror before smp, at a “full head of hair” to full shaved off shiny head.. it’s hard to get used to, where as if someone is already bald or wet shaving their head... they are already used to the look...
  3. Light brown hair and unevenly greying

    Shine on my head is no different whether I wet or rotary shave. PTR is great when first applied but does where off within a few hours... 2 years on, I’m still using it daily as I’ve yet to fine a better solution
  4. 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

    Looking good mate. Blend looks spot on 👍🏻
  6. Light brown hair and unevenly greying

    Interested to see some pics mate
  7. Few questions from a newbie

    Hello I’ve had smp for about 18 months now & I’m a bit of a bugger for going in the sun, I do wear sun cream most of the time & I haven’t experienced any sort of fading I’ve even burnt my head and it peeled, still no change some people just hold the ink better than others
  8. Light brown hair and unevenly greying

    Looks really good mate. Not sure you need a 3rd session. Nice subtle hairline shaving off to the wood now 😉 wish my head looked matte like yours 😫
  9. Tips on how to look good with shaved head

    I’m quite pale in the winter and nobody as EVER mention “cancer look” to me. You must have a nice circle of friends!!!! Plus everybody looks better with a tan, hair or no hair regarding the the cap thing, total opposite for me. I like wearing caps/hats but never did with hair because it used to make it a mess and reveal my receding hairline. Now I can take it on & off as and when I like not sure any of your points are valid to be honest, you’re basically saying smp will only look good on buff tanned people 🤔
  10. Smp cut lengh

    Rotary / foil or wet shave
  11. Buzz cut number 1 clippers

    Hi you have a similar hair line to me & I've have smp and lowered my hair line and my honest opinion is that, you wouldn’t get away with a no1 buzz cut with a lowered hair line. You’d see a difference between hair and dots. I wet shave and it blend perfect the only way imo to keep the number 1 is to just fill in the receding areas and keep your hair line where it is. See pic (fill in above the red lines)
  12. Light brown hair and unevenly greying

    I didn’t think it would be long before going to the wood.. it got the better of me in the end lol
  13. Sunblock / sunscreen

    I wouldn’t obsess with the alcohol thing... small amounts in moisturiser etc won’t affect SMP I use Piz Buin dry touch factor 30 when knocking about, but on holiday I just use whatever my missus packs lol. Last year it was some clear Nivea spray, which was a bit greasy i exposed my scalp to quite a bit of sun last year, 2 holidays aboard & long walks every other day and suffered zero fading
  14. Rotary or foil electric shaver

    rotary all day long for me. I use Remington 360, with no issues at all but I can also wet shave against the grain with no issues either
  15. Light brown hair and unevenly greying

    What do you class as a buzz cut? A clipper cut grade 1-3? That’s what I do & IMO SMP doesn’t replicate this, especially after a few months when the dots shrink & fade etc, it’s looks more like a wet shave or rotary shave and I think people need to be aware of this I also thought it would be at most, a zero clipper cut, but now a year on I’m wet shaving and this matches spot on most google images show treatments directly after sessions & yes it can look like a buzz cut, but you don’t see a great deal of treatments months later when healed & faded
