I tweezed my scalp for the first time around new years and I can offer some advice to anyone who might be considering tweezing. I used an Emjoi Soft Caress Epilator - 36 Gold Plated Hypoallergenic Tweezers (Rechargeable). There are a few things other people have already said here that I'll repeat. Tweezing is painful. Tweezing one hair with tweezers is a small fleeting pain and I initially found epilating to be less painful than I thought, but I found that built over time. It felt like an impact pain, like something striking my head. It wasn't unmanageable, but I had to take breaks. This brings up another point. It takes a long time. If you have a full head of hair then it will take a long time to tweeze it all. It took me four days to tweeze my entire scalp. Granted that was with taking breaks and giving my scalp time to rest, but that was a necessary part. While tweezing I found it super helpful to be able to see what I was doing; I set up a camera with a live feed on my computer so I could see the back of my head. It made that part way easier. One of my main reasons for this is it's really important that the epilator is removing your hair in the direction of its growth. This will help prevent your hair from breaking and causing ingrown hairs. That being said I still had some ingrown hairs. Otherwise the result was amazing! There was no sign of shadow for a few weeks at least. It wasn't as smooth as I thought it would be. I did still have some hairs on my scalp, which I ended up shaving (I didn't want to retweeze while I was dealing with ingrown hairs), but it made shaving way faster. I was surprised when my hair did begin growing back how little it had been damaged. I figure this may have been because I hadn't tweezed my scalp repeatedly. but it further reinforces that if you want to go bald using this method, then you'll need to be dedicated.

@dalboz thank you for your post!

Very interesting. Do you feel the quality of the skin on your head was changed in any way? Any changes in texture of appearance of the skin other than no hair?  I could really dig no fringe hair for weeks!

There were a couple spots where I had discoloration, but it faded over time. I didn't really notice any difference to my skin apart from the few ingrown hairs I had. When my hair started growing back some of it was blonde(I have brown hair now, but I was blonde until I was about 8 so I figure that might explain that).

To anyone considering this as a one-time or every-now-and-then alternative to shaving I would say don't. While my head looks smooth in the pictures I still had some fine hairs I had to shave. So it's not the totally smooth experience you might think it's going to be. I did look effectively bald so if it's the hair free look you want that's worth considering. However, tweezing your head is really only advisable if you want to be bald and from a lot of the research I did I realized it doesn't work for everyone.

I experienced some hair loss. As I stated previously, less than I thought I would. Some hairs grew back lighter, and finer, but ultimately I didn't have the perseverance to maintain tweezing. It's definitely something I want to try again although I'm doubtful whether I'll be able to affect any baldness.

@dalboz thanks for sharing. Will the hair softer if I keep repeating tweeze them?

@Hieu Tran I don't know if your hair will grow back softer if you repeating tweeze your head. Repeating tweezing your head should cause damage to your roots which will cause less of your hair to regrow so your hair will almost certainly be thinner.

When my brother was in law school he ended up pulling his hair because of the stress and his wife said that when his hair grew back it was much softer initially.

It's hard for me to tell whether tweezing has made my hair softer. I've lost some hair so it's a little thinner, but not a ton.

What I concluded from my experience was that in order to effectively go bald I would have to maintain a tweezed scalp, Fortunately once you've eliminate the bulk of your hair tweezing is less painful. Definitely not pain free but I can understand why some guys who've tweezed for a long time don't mind it.

Before I tweezed my head I read pretty much every first hand experience I could get my hands on. There's a yahoogroup that's pretty much defunct now that had a lot of activity around tweezing. Guys stories varied from dazzling successes to abject failure. One of the things I was worried about was am I going to mess up my hair and not be able to keep tweezing. Ultimately I decided the experience of being bald was worth the risk and it worked out alright.
