For a woman, her hair is a sign of her femininity. It may also show her style and personality. When hair loss begins, at any age, it can affect how she feels about herself. Although a hair transplant may be an option for some, for others the type of loss doesn’t warrant the expense or possible failure of a transplant. If you have hair that is thinning along your part, temples, or all over, scalp micropigmentation (SMP) may be the perfect solution for you.
SMP for Women is Different
When a man wants SMP it’s usually to make their nearly shaved head appear to have a consistent hair pattern. For women the goal is to lessen the appearance of their scalp. That’s because men usually bald from front to back or in a circle at the back of their head. As women’s hormones change, their hair often begins to thin. Their hair loss is consistent throughout their scalp but the appearance is most apparent at their hairline and part.
Does it Work for All Women?
The darker your hair, the better the results. Because the pigmentation added to your scalp is meant to blend with your hair to make it appear that there is hair there, it doesn’t work very well on blonde or light hair. If your hair loss is from alopecia areata, you’re probably not going to have great results from SMP but rather should work with your doctor.
The SMP Technician Should Be Too
If you’re considering scalp micropigmentation, you should only choose a tech who understands the differences in technique for women and men. The process is different for women. They don’t need to shave their head at all. The technician will work in sections across your scalp starting with your natural part and apply the pigment. They’ll then part an adjacent area until the contrast between the scalp and the hair is lessened. It still may require a few sessions to obtain the results you want, but in the end it works.
