Hey Guys, everywhere I look , I see guys are really concerned about shine. I've had SMP myself, and no, Im not an expert, just wanted to share my 2 cents here I've tried several recommendations , like milk of magnesia, OTC matting creams, etc, looking for matting and antishine agents for SCALP or for guys. Nothing really there. then i looked at products for girls. Turns out that ladies have been dealing with shiny-oily skin for generations, and they have a multitude of tried and tested products especially made for them. Remember the little powder case that they would carry around in their bags, and dab on at every occasion? thats what its for: to reduce shine!! So i recently got myself a transparent compressed powder , and guys, it works! kills shine all over the scalp, evens out scalp tone, lasts for hours, probably all day if you dont sweat, and is easy to apply. I have several long and shiny scars in the back of my head, courtesy of the nice "Doctors" who did my plugs years ago, and the |SMP does camouflage them to some degree, but the scar skin is particularly shinier than normal skin. The powder matting agent kills the shine and makes the scar way less noticeable in direct light. Just be discreet when pulling out your little powder case and dabbing your noggin in public! When it comes to make-up, no point in reinventing the wheel , the girls have been doing it since the stone age, so we should look at what they do, they know every trick in the book. for example, just try a search for "best anti shine face powder transparent" on google, amazon, ebay... btw, mine cost me 4 or 5 quid on ebay, free ship.
OK, SO, i had treatment done about 3 years ago, I must point out that I do not regret having it done, and I would rather have it done than not, but I would be interested if anyone else like me feels that, especially at night with the shine from artificial light that to most people you are just still BALD, am I the only one who feels like this? I read so many posts of people saying how people think they now have hair, yes Ive had a few comments over the years to this affect, but just as many comment from people who still think Im bald I'm constantly trying new ways to stop the shine at night, if you ever sweat by the way, its all over anybody else in the same camp???
Hi lads, 25 year old guy here who is receding ALOT and getting light on top (see pics). I'm pretty much ready to take the plunge and get SMP (i'll shave the remaining hair right before it) but have 3 concerns to address first; - Shaving; Im hoping to use an electric shaver. Most of the forums recommend Braun Series 7 (which is pretty expensive). What do you guys use/recommend? I'm guessing i'll have to shave everyday. -Shine; Right now my forehead is pretty shiny so I can only assume my head will also be that shiny when i shave it. What do you guys use to reduce shine on the head? - People noticing you got SMP; I guess it's a two way street - I want people to notice that i'm no longer bald BUT i also don't want them to notice i ''tattoo'd'' my head. Friends that I have told about it have warned me against getting it done and saying it's ''too early'' to shave my head. Obviously I don't agree. Any advice would be appreciated. Cheers
OK my friends, let me preface this by saying I have not seen SMP in person. I have however shaved my head for 10 years, and I remember when I still had hair (thinning albeit). I was also in the Navy for 6 years and have seen many people shaving their head that had plenty of hair. Point is when you shave your head hair or no, it shines. Thats just the way it is. I am not about to post pics of my Navy friends, assuming I could find one which I don't even know if I can, to prove the point. I did however find a few pics that kinda show what I mean. Again this is NOT a full endorsement of SMP cause I haven't put my eyes on it in person, but I do know the shine issue to be true hair or not, so figured I might try to narrow down the discussion of drawbacks to the ones that in my mind are valid. first one show the same length hair without the direct light and as you can see looks amazing and full. Then light dead on and she looks to be thinning
