Inventor from Southport hits funding goal for his new bald styling range
A Southport inventor says he is delighted after hitting his initial fundraising target to help launch his brand new range of ‘bald styling’ products.
David Lam has been backed by Sefton Council and over 50 others in his bid to launch a new range of products he calls ‘iHead’ to help bald men and women manage their scalp – using 100 year old tricks and secrets from China!
Based in Southport, UK, the startup business iHead was founded by David Lam with the mission to help redefine the culture and, in time, trend of bald styling, bringing the phrases “bald styling” and “bald stylist” into the mainstream.
David launched a kickstarter campaign in late 2016 abnd has already received backing of over £9,000 – way above his £8k goal he needs to start putting his product into development.
David said: “If you razor shave your head, it is likely you would have adopted a face shaving product to do it. I have done it and nothing is designed specifically for wet shaving your head.
“I took a lessons from my 98 year old mother whose complexion is often mistaken for 20 years her junior. Her skin care secrets originated from Northern China enduring harsh winters and scorching summers.
“When I balanced the secrets with wild west traditional art of wet shaves, Sphynx baldstyling was crafted. We discovered a tamed wilderness in a perfectly balanced formula for your scalp care during a wet shave.
“Sphynx baldstyling shaving oil and baldstyling shave serum contains only natural ingredients.
“You can achieve super finishes that’s never been experienced before. For completeness, a baldstyling Spa Tonic and baldstyling Cream Cologne were designed for you to properly treat yourself.
“So far fifty backers have made pledges amounting to almost 104% of the target amount for funding, with 12 days of fundraising still to go.
“The pledges are for seed funding to launch the commercial development of the Sphynx System, a series of products (including patented hardware and wetware) dedicated solely to bald styling.
“This result is a great late Christmas gift for us.”
A spokesperson for Sefton Council said: “InvestSefton – Sefton Council’s business support and investment team – have begun discussions with IHead to see how they can help grow the business.
“Colin Hickey and Mike Mullin of InvestSefton were recently given an introduction to the company’s plans and were impressed by the quality of the products available and the potential for new investment and jobs in Southport.”
