With nearly 5,000 subscribers on my YouTube channel devoted to men’s hair loss, it was like receiving a compliment when Brb Hair Loss Shampoo reached out to me and asked if I would like to try a bottle of their product, to mention in one of my videos.
I instantly replied with a more grandiose proposal:
“How about you keep me supplied with your shampoo, and I’ll make at least one video per month to document whether it is helping reverse my male pattern baldness?”
It was a match made in hair loss heaven.
So today, coinciding with the official American launch of the Thai brand hair loss shampoo, Brb, I now present to you the “before” photos.
My plan is to document the next 9 months of my journey on my YouTube channel, as 9 months is the span of time in which most users find positive results.
Something that I particularly appreciate about Brb is the ingredients consistent of natural extracts native to one of my most favorite countries in the world: Thailand.
While I don’t judge any man for choosing to use the products of Big Pharma like Propecia or Rogaine, I personally prefer natural products instead of chemicals. I feel the BRB is an obvious extension of my own brand as one of YouTube’s most popular hair loss channels.
If you are interested in joining me on my journey, you can actually purchase BRB at a discounted rate, thanks to an exclusive promo code; which is simply my last name:
Just click this link to place Brb Hair Loss Shampoo in your cart, then type in Shell where it says “Enter a promo code” in order to receive an exclusive 10% discount.
I think this will be a pretty cool public experiment. Each month, I promise to make at least one video showing what my hair looks like, after each new month of faithfully using BRB shampoo.
Yes. I am the human guinea pig and I am inviting the entire world to watch.
I love not having to think about going to get a haircut every 4 weeks, or having to pay for a haircut, or having to spend the time to get a haircut, or having to wonder if my hair is messed up after walking outside in the wind.
The zero guard buzz cut served as a perfect outward representation of how I feel on the inside.
Even though I can still grow hair, I personally prefer the look and feel of no hair.
In my opinion, the buzz version of me with the zero guard buzz cut is when I also have a 2 week-old beard:
I even wrote a cool original song about how great it is to buzz off your hair:
So if you’re considering trying out the buzz cut look, let me tell you about a must-have that I finally discovered here at the end of my 90 days of baldness:
HairMax sponsored this article; I received the product as compensation for my time and platform. HairMax believes that consumers and bloggers are free to form their own opinions and share them in their own words. HairMax’s policies align with WOMMA Ethics Code, FTC guidelines and social media engagement recommendations.
As a YouTuber of a channel focused on men’s hair loss, which currently has over 4,000 subscribers, I am becoming more of an official spokesman on the subject. I have even noticed that here on my blog, much of the traffic I am now receiving is thanks to the times I’ve published articles about men’s hair loss.
I have stumbled into this position, for sure, as I myself am not necessarily balding, but now thousands of men watch my videos every day on the subject. I believe much of my success is due to the fact that, in the real world, it is not acceptable for a man to voice his insecurities about his hair loss.
Instead, he is often met with, “Oh, just get over it! Balding happens to a lot of guys. Just shave it all off. Who cares?”
But for a younger, single man, it is a much bigger deal. So many of my YouTube subscribers feel that without hair, they can’t be confident in themselves.
As long as that’s what they believe, it will be true for them.
I encourage my subscribers to find the path to hair loss confidence in the path that suites them individuals.
Therefore, it is no surprise to me that the folks at HairMax reached out to me recently regarding their newest product designed to help men, and women, who are suffering from hair loss.

I was so tired of having to deal with hair, that in the likeness of Pedro on the movie Napoleon Dynamite, I just grabbed a pair of clippers and buzzed it all off. (And I have yet to regret my decision!)
So as a consolation, Boardroom Salon for Men offered to give me a haircut after I returned from my Florida trip. The funny thing was, with me having already buzzed off my hair, there wasn’t much left to cut.
However, on my most popular YouTube channel which happens to focus on men’s hair, many of my nearly 4,000 subscribers had been asking me to shave off all my hair with a razor. I didn’t want to do it myself because I saw it as too much trouble.
So as you can imagine, Boardroom Salon for Men was happy to engage my YouTube audience, as I made a video chronicling the epic event.
Here is the video I made featuring my visit. I admit, I am especially proud of the jingle I wrote for Boardroom Salon for Men, in Nashville on West End.
It is one of the most liberating experiences for a man to shave off all his hair; though I imagine many men, especially for those who can still grow hair, fear such an extreme change.
Not me. I love it.
And I think this speaks to the concept of a classy barbershop like Boardroom Salon For Men: That when it comes to men’s hair, choosing to go completely bald these days is just relevant as maintaining a traditional hairstyle.
Nationwide, there are 30 locations for Boardroom Salon for Men; across Texas, Tennessee, Oklahoma and Georgia. If you’re interested in visiting the new location I visited, which is right across the street from Nashville’s famous Parthenon, here’s the address:
2505 West End Avenue, Nashville, TN 37203
I am very pleased with my visit. I also feel honored to be have been sought out as one of YouTube’s most popular “men’s hair” hosts in America.
And yes, I totally get the layers of irony: I run a popular YouTube channel about men’s hair, though I choose not to have any hair, and then I get approached by Boardroom Salon for Men.
Either way, I am proud to serve as a spokesman.
