+1 for got2b, I used that for volume then a bit of matte paste for style though if you use enough powder sometimes you don't need it.

+1 for this, have had so many products and this is the only one I truly like.

I use Shu Uemura clay definer. Again fairly pricy, but you don’t need a lot. Good hold, matte finish, easy to work in. By far the best I’ve tried, although intrigued to try this Kevin Murphy stuff

Think it also works for longer hair?

I use this on my hair. Keeps it back without the need for hairspray, and stays like that for a good few days.

I’ve got thick black hair and it works for me.

It does give a chalky/dry feel to the hair, but is completely matt in finish.
Holds very well and you can still run your hand through it.

Hanz de fuko - Quicksand is the best I have come across. Strong hold, totally matt finish, non greasy and feels quite natural

Good results, do you have to use any hair loss treatments post-op to keep gains?

I’ve been on finasteride and biotin ever since. Has stopped further hair loss mostly. But, the finasteride is a bit of a boner killer, but, since I’m married with a kid now, it doesn’t really matter Laughing out loud

Some of the results i've seen on the KSL clinic instagram are jaw dropping. Luckily enough i don't think i'll ever have to get it done but if i did need too i think i'd take the plunge. If only guido still posted on here Sad

Edit: Looks good NB. Any differing affect of different types of hair?

Thanks Mob, get your parents an extra special gift this year for blessing you with your Barnet

My hair is curly and coarse so it requires a slightly different technique to transplant when compared to straight hair. Most decent doctors can do both hair types. Floyd mayweather has done his, apparently at a Turkish clinic who get some great results and much more cost effective.

The new implanted hair comes from the back and sides and is a slightly different texture to the top, since they are terminal. When hair is buzzed short, a trained eye maybe able to tell the difference, so a lot of people keep hair a bit longer after the top.

Nice one Nige. I'm curious about doing it as I have decent, thick hair but it's slowly receding at the temples.

Looks good but I reckon you'd look great with it all off too tbh, Nige. You've got the jaw line and general aesthetic to easily pull off the baldy look.

What prompted your decision to go for the transplant? Was it a confidence 'thing' or motivated by other factors?

Funnily enough, I shaved it all down to a zero before I got the procedure. Didn’t mind it personally, mrs liked it, but I wasn’t ready to go full baldy in my twenties. Hair loss probably started mid twenties which felt too young. A few years of having a hairlines until I hit 36+ and I’ll be ready to shave it again. Think it looks better with a full beard and a bit of gymming.
