Protecting Your Tresses

I’ve always relished an opportunity to get a new hairstyle. In fact, my hairstylist never knows what I’m going to ask for next. I always keep her in suspense. For the past few years, I’ve switched back and forth between two distinctly different styles. While I enjoy experimenting with my hair, the continuous processing I put it through is detrimental to my tresses. Therefore, I have to be careful to protect my hair. Every day, I apply a deep conditioner to my hair. I also dry my hair on a warm setting instead of a hot one. On this blog, you will learn how to maintain your hairstyle while protecting your tresses from damage.

Tattoos As A Hair Loss Remedy? What You Need To Know About Micropigmentation

People try the strangest things to hide the fact that they are getting older and losing hair on their heads. While actual tattoos, might be a solution, the ink from tattoos often fades, giving away the fact that you have tried to tattoo fake hair onto your head. Instead, you should try micropigmentation for scalp treatments. While similar in some aspects to tattooing your scalp, the results are very different.

What Micropigmentation Is

Micropigmentation takes into account several variables, such as your age, gender, skin tone, patches of hair loss, etc. Then the aesthetician mixes the perfect "ink" to match your natural hair color (at its roots!) and uses a special wand with three needles in it to create the perfect "five-o'clock" shadow on your bare scalp. The needle applications of this non-fading ink are done in such a way that they will blend with your own natural hair roots, thus providing a very natural hairline and appearance of more hair.

Different-sized needles are also used so that there is a more realistic pattern to the root-pores of the false "hair." Where the pores are smaller and/or lighter on your head, a finer needle is used to create coverage on neighboring bald areas. Where your hair is typically thicker and/or darker, the needles are thicker and heavier to produce the appearance of thick undergrowth on your scalp.

Why It Is Different from Tattooing

Tattoo inks eventually fade, which would result in a very awkward pattern on your head of real hair with faded and fake tattoo "hair." You would need to do an ink touch-up on your scalp every couple of years or keep your hair exceptionally short and slather a lot of sunscreen on your head. Since neither of those options are very favorable, the micropigmentation is a better option. The special inks used to apply the needle marks do not fade, do not need reapplication, and are not affected by a lot of direct sunlight. You will not need to slather on any sunscreen, nor do you have to worry about really deep tissue scarring. 

The needles used in micropigmentation do not go as deep as a tattoo needle. That means you will not bleed as much, and there will be almost no scar tissue. Only fresh needles are used in this procedure, so there is little to no risk of contracting other infections that are commonly associated with tattooing.
