In my younger days, I had long curly hair that was sort of my trademark look. My mom used to say that I looked like the model Fabio when I had my hair tied back in a pony-tail. Once my hair loss progressed to a noticeable stage I was forced to cut my hair lower to avoid people finding out that I was going bald. At first I could get away with just a lower cut and comb the longer hair over the balding areas, then I had to shave my head lower to avoid detection, finally it came to a point where my hair had to be pretty much bone bald for me to feel confident that people weren’t noticing my problem. After I had the scalp micropigmentation done on myself I can grow my hair longer with the SMP camouflaging the thinning areas of my scalp. No more straight razors, and much more confidence.
