Great to hear you’ve done so much research. Perhaps more research into Skalp themselves will help clear things up. They’re so far ahead of the game. Look at their instagram account for a ton of pictures (@skalp.clinic). The soft hairlines they can achieve are incredible. They don’t do big dots, it all looks extremely natural imo.
Bottom line is: does SMP look better than what you’re currently rocking with? If it does, and you can afford it and you want to commit, than its an incredible confidence booster. I’ve had it for well over a year now and my experience is totally positive. Exciting, scary and confusing sometimes, but it leads to the best possible place 🙂
