Dober,  I have not be on for a while and I just saw your "system" and I have to say it really looks good, not fake looking at all.  And I did not expect you to get this much hair.

So how is the maintenance to deal with it?

Hi Sly, and thanks!

So, after the initial hurdle of being new to hair, and LONG hair, I finally got the hang of it. I was using full head adhesive, then switched to tape and glued hairline to finally just tape, all around.

It takes just about an hour, total to remove, clean, condition, and dry. Another 15 minutes to reattach. I do that once a week will probably switch to every other week, in the late fall.

Daily maintenance, is minimal. I have an easy style... man bun/samurai ponytail. I spray with leave-in conditioner, and brush, then put it up and go; 5 mins.

It's been REALLY fun.

I never would have thought you could get a system with a modern style like that.  I assume the fringe is your natural hair that blends in with it.

Actually, my avatar pic is from after my first "haircut", day after the system was "cut in", I wanted the sides, shorter, and that is my "natural fringe".

My current look, see attached, has my head completely shaved.

They did a great job with it, I am impressed.  Since  you are completely shaved underneath, do you always wear it, or do you sometimes go out bald?

And does it make you head hot since you are accustomed to having it exposed?

So, the question has two answers.

I had to return the system, do to shedding problems, and have been without for about three weeks, and my replacement will be here on Monday. So, yes, I have been going out "bald".

Before, I would only go to the supermarket without it (Friday or Sat AM).

I would say that I don't feel hotter... it's lace, so it breaths. I also avoid the strong sun (wear a hat, when I must), since I am really sensitive to it.

I don't think I would wear it if I had to work outside.

Steve,

I wouldnít have imagined you with hair!  While I am perfectly happy to be shaved or grow out my MPB, people need to be happy with their look!  While I had always admired your shaved headed and bearded look, you actually wear the system well!  As for myself, I am growing back my fringe.  Iíve done that before but shaved it off after a month or two.  I actually would like to get the fringe long and maybe even grow out the ponytail.  Some people think I might be nuts but I like contrasts?   I still love my bald head but had not had long hair since the early 90ís when I started to lose hair.  But I will probably come back to a totally shaved head!

Hi Marsh,

Thanks for the compliments. The hair has been a load of fun. Although the BF prefers me shaved bald! As for you... go ahead and grow out the fringe. Let your freak flag fly, no matter how much you have left.

I tried it for nine months and gave up.

Best,

Steve
