Will Your Hair Loss Treatments Go Away on Their Own?
When you think of someone sporting a ” shaved head” you would probably picture them to be in their twenties, with a buzz haircut and wearing a pair of sweat pants. But more men are discovering that there is more to baldness than going completely bald. It is now being considered a more fashionable look for men. More men are now looking at balding patterns, and developing unique hairstyles, as well as altering their haircuts to grow a full head of hair.
If you are thinking about getting a hair tattoo, you should think long and hard about what you want out of your new tat. A receding hairline, or male bald spots, is an extreme form of baldness that has definite disadvantages associated with it. They can be very unsightly and make you appear far older than you really are. For that reason they are not the best permanent solution for everyone.
A typical hair tattoo, which can be either a vertical or horizontal style, starts as a small outline of the scalp. As it grows, the ink gradually covers your entire scalp leaving behind a thinned out and darker area of your scalp. You can choose any color of ink that you like but do not let that dictate the pattern or color that you end up with. Many people with male baldness opt for classic black or white patterns. The trick is to find something that will not make your scalp or other features appear odd.
There are various types of pigments that you can get over the counter in salons and even from a doctor, but most of these pigments cause the scalp to experience an allergic reaction that makes the skin become irritated and red. In addition, using any kind of over the counter or doctor prescribed products may cause your skin to break out. While you are waiting for your appointment to finish and getting your hair tattooed, it is advisable to refrain from washing your hands with any kind of soap or cleanser. Use a patting motion rather than scrubbing your skin, because this will help to keep the pigment evenly spread across your skin and prevent it from irritating your skin.
Dots are the latest buzz in hair tattoo popularity. Rather than having large, permanent circles in your head, you can have mini dots that will disappear over time and only be noticeable during an intense photo shoot. Since the new tattoos are still just as visible while you are in the air, you won’t see a difference in the appearance of your head while you are in the studio or during a photo shoot.
There are many treatments that can be used to achieve a more gradual change in appearance. For instance, a popular option is called scalp micropigmentation. With scalp micropigmentation the area of your head is painted with an image that will blend with your hair. While some people are not comfortable with this option, there are many who love the results. Scalp micropigmentation will require many treatments over time until the desired effect is achieved. While this method may not be right for everyone who wants to reduce their hair loss treatments, it is certainly worth investigating.
