How you wear your hair can say a lot about your personal style and preferences. Many people use their hair as a form of expression, showing the world a glimpse into their lives without ever saying a word. Some people love the routine and familiarity of maintaining the same hairstyle for years. Others like to change their look weekly. But the main idea behind it all is that they have that freedom of choice to decide just what they want to do.
Not everyone has that choice however. Due to a wide range of issues, experiences, or conditions, there are many people who get to a point in their lives when they can no longer use the top of their head as a canvas for expression. But science, medicine, and technology have come quite far, and quite rapidly. These days, there have been methods developed which do provide these individuals with the pleasure of choice, something that they thought they would have to be without.
The magic of micropigmentation
Scalp micropigmentation is a procedure that can be used for any number of reasons, but is generally a solution for hair loss and scar revision. The process involves tattooing the skin in order to achieve the appearance of natural hair. For some, micropigmentation is the solution to scarring on the scalp that has resulted from old hair transplants, skin disorders, burns, or neurosurgical procedures. But it can also be a good go to for those who are experiencing hair loss or thinning of the hair and want to continue to choose their personal style instead of letting nature do it for them. In this case, the result of micropigmentation reduces the contrast between your hair and your scalp.
Saying goodbye to your hair
Everyone goes through a different process when it comes to their hair, but in general, most human beings do not pass away from old age with a full head of hair. For the vast majority of us, it starts thinning later in life, and for many, bald becomes the new look before they are quite ready for it. Numerous hair clinics offer different solutions for thinning hair or baldness, and if you are experiencing this, it could be worth it to speak with a hair loss specialist. There are specialists who can help women with thinning hair, but the market is largely geared toward men, as they are more often the ones who end up going bald. In fact, about 85% of men have noticeably thinning hair by the time that they reach the age of 50. And the truth is that half of a man’s head of hair is already gone by the time it is even noticeable. Exploring options to be able to continue to have control over your look when you start to lose your hair is a great opportunity to have.
Personal appearance should be a personal choice, not one that society or the media and beauty industry decides for anyone. Knowing that you have options, and exploring what works best for you will allow you to continue to lead the life you know you want to.
