Hi guys. I’m going to post my story as truthfully as possible. Hairloss for me is a massive thing. I’m no Brad pitt but I thought I was a relatively decent looking guy until I started losing my hair. Like most people reading this, i started losing my hair in my early 20’s. Now at the age of 34 I hated looking like a baldy. I had no self confidence which in turn, stopped me from being as sociable as i’d like to be. Quite honestly not a day would pass where I wouldnt look in the mirror and hate what I saw.
My Mrs has always said she likes the shaved hair look and to be fair I had no option but to me, seeing a baldy guy with a shaved head because he has to shave it is different to seeing a guy with a shaved head because he wants that look……..
It’s taken me 2 years to pluck up the courage but I finally I emailed Nina at SKALP. I contacted several different places but after reading all the different stuff over the internet, they seemed to stand out from the rest. I made the right choice…………….
I had no interest in having a consultation. I had faith in their services simply from what I had read and after personally contacting people who had had the treatment (Paul Connely). So this was it, I had to do this, for myself, for my own self confidence.
I called Nina as I had a few questions. I’m a fitness trainer and as I sweat a lot with my job I thought this would be an issue through the treatment stages.
I was put at ease straight away and thought I have to do this. I booked my first appt.
Building up to the big day I wont lie, I was shitting it. Will it look false? What will will people say? What if i look a dick? All these things were going through my head and more. The big day came and I hadnt slept a wink. I set off in good time from York to manchester, found a really dodgy car park and found the place pretty easily. Nervous as hell I rocked up and met the practitioner. Instantly I felt at ease. I’d read all about the skalp practitioners and their experience, I knew i was in the best hands so although I was nervous, I had faith at the same time.
What I loved was that we sat down, chatted about the whole thing over a brew. I didnt feel rushed through the whole process as though i was next to get done then kick out of the door. Remembering i’ve never actually sat down and spoke with someone before about how I felt. It’s been bottled up inside, after all i’m a man and we’re not suppose to show emotions right?
Expressing how I felt was hard, but explaining it to someone who has also been there seemed much easier………
It was time and we went through to the room. I was not concerned about any pain. I even remember saying after that he could have made it 4 times as bad and I would still have done it. That’s how much I wanted to get me confidence back. So was it painful? Not at all. On a scale of 1- 10, i’d rate it a 3. A piece of piss to be completely honest and thats not me trying to be a tough guy.
The practitioner passed me a white pencil and said, “OK, Draw on your head a hairline that you are thinking of. I knew exactly the sort of thing I wanted. A natural looking hairline, not something that look to perfect as i think that looks shite. he agreed that for my shape head etc, that he would agree with what i was envisaging.
It took about 3 hrs for my first session. I remember looking in the mirror and already saw a massive leap forward. ” Holy shit, I have a hair line again” was my first words and man did it feel good. OK so it didnt look perfect as they explained, a first treatment shouldnt and doesnt but It gave me a picture of how it was going to look.
It was a great feeling and I knew things would only get better. We chatted after the treatment too and i was feeling so good. I stuck to the guidelines after the treatment that was clearly explained to me and given to me on a handout.
I’ve now just had my 2nd treatment done and the difference is AMAZING with a capital A. You feel good after treatment 1 but after treatment 2, you’ll be blown away!
I have my 3rd and final treatment in Manchester early July and thats me fully SKALPED. Would I recommend this treatment to guys that are losing their hair or have lost their hair. WITHOUT A DOUBT and there’s only person I’d be visiting to to do it too. Thanks SKALP. Life changing is an understatement. You’re a top geezer and I can’t thank you enough. Ben
PICS SHOW BEFORE TREATMENT AND DIRECTLY AFTER TREATMENT 2. The redness has now died down and I cant even make out the difference between my own natural hair and my SKALPED area. HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY!30/07/2014 at 11:21 pm #29935

A hairline really does make a difference to somebody’s look. Look forward to hearing what it’s been like for you since having this done.04/08/2014 at 11:28 am #29963Benjamin KramerParticipant
I agree the difference between having a hairline and not is noticeable. For me it just make u look younger.05/08/2014 at 6:53 pm #29969JR25Participant
Benjamin having a hairline is such a fantastic thing and for me made such a big difference. Get yourself down to your nearest clinic and have a consultation. They are friendly and offer great advice and I’m certain you will then go for it.
