I am not sure if this is the correct forum to post this but since Baccy was such an intricate force in the DIY follica experiments, I thought it note worthy to post what he finally did. I think he solved his problem with a tattoo and lately I have to admit that I’ve been considering the same since it doesnt look like a cure is coming within “5 to 20 years”. I found this quote by him on another site.
“It looks totally natural. I think it continues to fade for up to 2 weeks before reaching it’s final shade. It’s light and as vague as a person’s natural shadow when shaved. My plan is to get it darkened all over (including my natural shadow) next year when I’ve become totally acclimatised to it.
You can’t tell it’s a tattoo because basically it doesn’t look like one. You can see the individual black dots which look like real follicles. Especially in daylight.
In direct sunlight, you may not be able to see it but that is the same for a natural hair shadow. But in regular lighting conditions it looks like you have a full head of shaved to the bone hair.
I’ll try to post some pics when I see my m8. I would recommend this treatment to anybody, regardless of their stage of baldness. If you actually have quite a bit of hair on top, you could go even darker as you will have the stubble as well.
If you’re as paranoid as me about it being too ‘in your face’, I can assure you that (name withheld) takes a softly softly approach and errs on the side of lightness. You may find that it is far too light after the first treatment has settled.”
He appears to be happy now- my concern is that since touch-ups are required- what happens if this place isnt around anymore?
