    from what I have seen concealer does a far better job on thinning hair and SMP does a far better job at giving bald guys a full head of ...........hairline anyways.

    SMP will not blend in or add bulk to your hair. Concealer will do a much better job if you use it correctly.

    Default Large SMP Dots

    The problem I have seen with SMP is dotting that is of a much larger diameter than the hairs exiting the scalp SMP is supposed to simulate.

    Concealer is better for guys that have longer hair (longer than shaved that is). In fact, concealer can give a stronger appearance than any surgical result simply because it masks the entire area of visible scalp where applied. SMP works far better on shaved guys of course because concealers don't have anything to really grab onto and it looks silly having such short hair and no visible scalp.

    I used concealer for ten years...it was the creme and the powder...

    I have some left over for dark brown hair if anybody wants it...(in the tri state area)

    The concealer a cool if you have a lot of hair in other parts. I got to a point where the concealer was showing so badly...I went to smp and a clean crisp hair look and I couldn't be happier. If your in the tri state ny area and want some course or topic for dark brown hair...buy me a cup of coffee or preferably a nice scotch or martini and it's yours...

    You'll also be able to see Matts work creating smp on my head three years ago..

    Still looks awesome...( I was a Norwood five)

    Kind of an interesting story. I have mentioned my 5'6" friend who shaves his slick bald Norwood 6 head. Women love the guy. He's about 46. He showed me a photo of him and his new 20+ year old girlfriend. Really good looking young lady. Something bothered him about the photo of he and his girl... His smile revealed a space between two of his side teeth. Being bald doesn't bother him at all.

    dude you have like 90% real hair still on your head. If I had your coverage before you got SMP done I would not have cared about doing anything to it.

    This has been my experience. Using a good hair loss concealer or hair thickening product such as Toppik or Xfusion gives a natural looking result.

    It's also been recommended to me to try DermMatch which is a waterproof hair loss concealer to minimize the amount of Toppik I use or even a hair thickening spray such as Mane before applying Toppik.
