As I mentioned in another series of posts, I decided, after shaving my head for over 24 years, to go with a hair system. At first, it was just for a laugh, then, as I got used to it, and switched to a less "out there" style, I have really come to like it.
It feels like I have hair on my head, I look, like it's my own, naturally growing hair. The maintenance is pretty easy, and just part of a weekly grooming routine.
The cost, in the beginning, were high, since I had long hair, now with the short hair, pretty reasonable. I don't smoke, drink or have any expensive hobbies, so it's not a financial burden. I am guessing, maybe, with hair, supplies, and haircuts (just when I get a new system), maybe... $150-$200 a month. I know some guys who drink that amount in a weekend.
I would never in a million years even consider a HT, the results are usually terrible.
If I want to... I can always just take it off, and that's it. For now, I am really really enjoying it.
