I’d become aware of SMP by doing what everyone else does, searching the internet for an answer – a cure to baldness. I hope that my experience will help others to avoid the mistakes I made.

I started losing my hair when I was 20, it felt very uncomfortable to be in that situation at that age.
I’ve always been an outgoing person, and have never let alopecia hold me back, but I was starting to worry about my thinning patches.
While most lads my age would be out enjoying themselves at the weekend I would just stay at home playing computer games wearing a cap.......indoors! Hair loss for me amplified and contributed to all this, at one time I thought when I made an effort I could look well turned out and decent, but now balding I could barely look at myself.
I was born with a rare mast skin cell activation disorder called Mastocytosis, as a result the skin on my scalp is heavily scarred.
It’s the best thing I've ever done, it’s not all about the hair it’s about the confidence it gives you. When I look in the changing room mirror I don't see a bald patch anymore and it feels great.
As a professional musician hair loss really had a huge effect on my self-esteem. Image plays a big part in the industry, and to be honest I could not look in the mirror without disliking what I was looking at.
My name is Steve; I am 38 years old and started to suffer from hair loss around the age of 30. For years now, I have been considering some form of hair transplant procedure and have been using Regaine for 3 years.
I began losing my hair at 22, I used fake tans and black felt tip pens to colour my scalp in. I had a hair transplant which failed leaving a 6-inch scar at the back of my head. When I reached 26 I began wearing a hair system, each system would last a year at a cost of £1200.
As a young man, I served in the army and was based in Germany. I began to lose my hair when I was 26. I had a hair transplant when I was 30. They used plug grafts from the back of my head to implant at the front. It left an 8” by 2” scar.
