  • Have you had SMP?
  1. 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)
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. Light brown hair and unevenly greying

    WTF that’s proper made me 🤣🤣 hair looks good (although poor pic) 👍🏻
  7. Light brown hair and unevenly greying

    My opinion is: if you’re zero gapping clippers, you may as well use a rotary or foil shaver, a lot less aggro
  8. Depends on how much hair you have left on your head most people wet / rotary or foil shave
  9. Light brown hair and unevenly greying

    This is my opinion on clippers... I’ve got some Wahl balding clippers, for them to work the best I needed a weeks worth of growth, otherwise using them daily was awkward and made my head sore. I need to shave daily, so rotary or wet shave for me PTR is a great product, which I use daily (very shiny head!!) I just wish it was cheaper or someone did a similar product that was less expensive
  10. Light brown hair and unevenly greying

    Have you got a shaving routine sorted now? & how did you find the PTR
  11. Just about to get SMP (few questions)

    Best way to apply this?
  12. Smp moisturizing tanning and anti-shine

    I get PTR for around £20, but I have seen it for as much as £50 !!
  13. Just about to get SMP (few questions)

    Hi there They can match smp to wet or rotary shave. I personally wet shave the top of my head (nw3) and rotary shave the sides & back. My hair was dark brown on the top & grey on the sides & this works best for me best anti-shine product is Peter Thomas Roth no health risk ink will not turn blue if you want to go low key, I’d ask for a receding look with a feathered hairline hope this helps
  14. Light brown hair and unevenly greying

    Looks good mate, although because I know of the treatment I can still see a difference between hair length & smp in the bottom photo, but ordinary folk wouldn’t cos they are not looking for it are you happy with that hairline shape now? 1 year on & I still get the occasional person ask why I shave my head when I’ve got a full head of hair. I just say “cos I like the style”
