  • Have you had SMP?
  1. 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
  2. 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 😫
  3. 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 🤔
  4. Smp cut lengh

    Rotary / foil or wet shave
  5. 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)
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. Light brown hair and unevenly greying

    WTF that’s proper made me 🤣🤣 hair looks good (although poor pic) 👍🏻
  11. 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
  12. Depends on how much hair you have left on your head most people wet / rotary or foil shave
  13. 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
  14. Light brown hair and unevenly greying

    Have you got a shaving routine sorted now? & how did you find the PTR
