    When I clicked on the video I was watching and thinking I was going to enjoy how bad his SMP is because he looks like a douche. However, after hearing about his story - told with a candid openness - I began to feel really bad for the guy. He literally did it all: transplants, wigs, and SMP.

    Very interesting video on what balding can do to us and what extents most of us will go to feel happy with the way we look.

    It was not SMP, but actual tattoo. He is an idiot.

    The most encouraging is the last one but those really don't change their apperence very much.

    Buzz cut is a good cope for balding guys but it will never compare to thick styled hair.

    Because there's no hair in the before and afters, there's little change in looks. Ugly remains ugly, good looks remain just that, Old remains old. Begins to look highly abnormal as someone ages too imo, unless they are black.

    Yet we can see many bald to full head transformations and vice versa, that really change a person. They can go from ugly to handsome, from looking creepy to sophisticated e.t.c.

    A very few number of people look great with a buzz cut. I can pull it off with dark features and masculine face, but I definitely lost points. So yeah it's a cope when I hear comments like it brings out my features or look alpha as the recent article posted mentioned almost as humour. If you don't have a masculine alpha face, do you really want your features brought out more by baldness is my first thought! Plain betas = screwed further by baldness. If the last guy I posted said it, it works well clearly.

    I was actually going to post that video when I saw it a couple days ago. It definitely made me change my mind about ever getting SMP; I cringed when the light hit his tattooed head.

    Basically need a masculine face and ideally type 3 skin tone at least to avoid looking bad with a shaved head.

    SMP is good to disguise scars and very minimally blend in bad transplants, which is what I am doing myself in January and will be documenting on here. Other than that, it is 100% bullshit. The people that get all over their head are so far gone, so desperate that they are delusional. Same for the people with 10% density that cover their head in toppix and think to themselves, "it looks ok!!".

    I have started to become delusional as well with my very thin hair. "Oh when I put in enough toppix and cover it in hair spray, it looks ok". Aside from how it looks.. this is a COMPLETELY unnacceptable way to live. It's a fucking cope and a prison.

    I wrote about this a few weeks back, my summary:

    Basically he got a convincing SMP that was subtle from a top notch specialist in LA, then randomly got a facial from some women in Jersey I think and she mentioned she also does SMP. Within a few minutes she convinced him that his SMP was all wrong, the hair line is crappy and it's not dark or whatever, and if any parts are too dark she can go over it again tattooing with his own skin tone (lol this guy has to be fucking retarded, surely that would ring alarm bells?!). He didn't research her or anything and comes back in for this horribly painful 5 hour long procedure that just felt like constant pain, nothing at all like the original SNAP because she's not using an SMP needles she's literally just tattooing with a blunter needle. And the result is atrocious as you'd expect.

    It ends up a bit confusing because he goes back to the LA guy who's disgusted that he ruined a great job, and is told he can work on it if he gets the SMP completely removed which is a very painful process and takes several months.

    From there I thought he agreed to this and then go back to finish the SMP, but it sounds like he's getting it removed and then staying bald, no more SMP.

    Let's see what he says a few months after it's removed... I know what I'm putting money on.

    I actually hope he has a positive end result.

    He really bares his soul in that video and for that he has my respect.

    Also, to think of all the things he went through because of his hair loss. Just a failed hair transplant alone is enough to make most men suicidal. Here's me saving for two years for a hair transplant - imagine if it didn't even work!

    The only saving grace is that he is wealthy and I'm sure he can afford all that laser removal and subsequent SMP session.

    I don't know exactly what makes you think the guy isn't a douche, he is a douche not just because he looks like one. He's one of those cyclical copers who will desperately push for treatments/a solution one day and when that turns to shit (like SMP did) he'll pretend he embraces his baldness and he's owning it.

    Yeah it's pretty easy to say you're "owning it" when all else fails.

    As for putting it out there on youtube well this is what he's about, it's not like me or you randomly uploading a youtube video, that would take real balls, this guy (like all youtubers) documents every corner of his life to millions of people. If you want to generally have respect for that then fine, but this is normal to him.

    On top of that by just putting it out there straight it avoids all the constant comment section speculation, tweets, and youtube reaction videos and dissection as to what the fuck has been going on with his hair. It's like when Rooney did his hair transplant tweet, that was surprisingly very smart, it means "it's out there now, no need for lingering and persistent scrutiny and questioning, as well as the assumptions I'm embarrassed about it which can be used negatively to slant me".

    But to summise, someone in the comment section puts my main point perfectly:

    Embrace it!". Wears hat 99% of the video.

    Unforgivably negligent of himself to not even do the most rudimentary of research on the person who is going to tattoo fake hair on his naked dome.

    I did notice the comment and I think its pretty funny.

    As for him being a douche - its just a matter of opinion. When I clicked on the video and saw how he was dressed I have to say I judged him and thought he looked an idiot. But when he opened up and explained to his viewers the extent that he went to just to prevent baldness made me really pity the guy.

    I always empathize with anyone who is beyond a norwood 3 - we are all brothers in this (cringe).

    He opens up to the world for no other reason than to empower other balding men facing the same struggles as himself. What a great guy!

    The penny just sort of dropped as to who I'm talking to here. You did used to casually write how baldness won't hit you because you look fine slybald, and now reality hits you're desperately planning for a hair transplant. You clearly can't see the issue with him here.

    Makes sense.

    This guy gets it.

    And the figures, that's just on his new channel, his older one's had millions (and this one will too soon). I wouldn't be surprised if he's over $10 million right now, in the past few years these youtubers have been getting insanely rich for what they do.
