    Hi Mathew85
    Had my first treatment feb2014
    Mine was max price of 3k
    I had the cash for it but decided to leave it in the bank and take the interest free credit
    Worked out about £229 a month over 12 months
    With regards to pre treatment, best to shave head in advance
    This helps you get used to a shaved head
    And apply plenty moisuriser
    Need to get scalp in top condition
    Mine wasn’t due to psoriasis, and I had more treatments than normal
    And it took me longer to get there
    But Skalp stuck with me and we got there
    With regards to after treatment , you will find out what works best for you
    I’ve done em all, wet shave , electric razor
    And I used to do a combination of both , but about 2 months ago I decided to buy the excellent braun series 7 shaver ,
    Not cheap at around £180 but does an excellent job,
    My Remington did not even come close

    I went for finance too. Very easy to deal with.
    Shave a few weeks before and Lots of moisturiser. Re aftercare. I was recommended by Marcin to buy the bald eagle shaved as I wanted a bit of stubble left. It’s fantastic for the money. After shaving I put on factor 50 la Roche posay anti shine sun cream. I then finish this with a tiny amount of Peter Thomas Roth primer. Can only get this online. It’s a bit expensive but having tried other things works best for me.

    Thanks for the help 🙂
    The finance option sounds good and an affordable option by the sounds of it, it was the only thing holding me back so I’ll get that sorted ASAP.
    I think I’ll shave my hair to a zero before the first session, that should be short enough I think.

    Ok so any specific moisturiser or can I use any, what would works best?
    The Braun 7 sound good ,I’ve heard about it before. I do get slight irritation from wet shave sometimes :/

    Cannot wait!!!

    Most people Nivea after sun
    I’m not keen on the scent plus
    I have to be careful due to my skin
    I like the Vaseline lotion
    The one in the yellow bottle
    I also love pure coconut oil, a bit greasy but helped me a lot
    Depending on how much hair you have left you will pro ally need to go closer than a zero following treatment, you get used to it
    I didn’t like wet shaving , but it enable even shave , but I started getting shave spots
    Having already spent money on 2 shavers that were not that good I was reluctant to spend any more, but series 7 was a big step up
    And an excellent shaver

    Thanks MarkyB

    Yeah I think I would prefer it without the scent, Coconut oil sounds perfect.
    Guna pick up Braun series 7 as the reviews online also seem good. I heard about one called the Bald Eagle also but
    I think that’s more expensive. I just want something that will take my Hair to the shortest it can be without using a Mach 3 blade that will make my skin sensitive and red.

    Both are good shavers mate. The bald eagle is under £100 on amazon but doesn’t cut as close but the stubble it gives is perfect for me.
    I also bought the wahl balding clipper but you need to use them everyday/ sometimes twice per day.
