I despratly need advice

Recommended Posts

I'm an African American male with thinning hair , its very bad in the corners of my head above my fore head. I'm considering SMP .. But what's holding me back is that I am dark skinned , not pitch black lol but I am only a couple shades lighter. And I'm not sure if the SMP will really stand out or look as good as it does on the lighter skin tones.I must add I have no insecurities about my skin color I actually love it and so o the ladies. But the hair thing is what kills me

Westside, what I would do if I were you is to try the patch test from HIS for about $75 (unless they changed the price). What HIS will do is put down anywhere from 10 to 50 dots in an area smaller than a dime wherever you want on your scalp. Then you can monitor the results as the weeks pass by and see if their darkest shade (shade 0) is dark enough in your opinion.

     Normally, the patch test is used for people who believe they might have an allergic reaction but it is also great for people who just want to try a small sample or for men of African descent who have darkly pigmented skin.
