I have luckily been blessed with good hair, thick, full, and sometimes unmanageably ‘a lot’. People would say my children will be so grateful one day, this is not the case. My daughter, as pretty as she is, has not had the hair gene passed on and moans constantly about having thin hair, queue the rolling eyes.
My son, on the other hand, has had a mop of hair since I gave birth, and naturally, all he wants to do is keep it short and trim like ‘Ronaldo,’ because it is cool. I did have my way for a little while when I left him with long curly hair almost to his shoulders but not until the start of school when we have to trim it short again.
I know there are similar parents out there in the same situation so I am okay with this kind of struggle of life. My husband, however, has his own agenda on the horizon. He is hitting the ripe old age of 50 and the signs are creeping in slowly. Click here to find out more about something I believe we should all embrace as each day is a blessing.
He is spending more time in the bathroom getting his now-thinning hair ‘just right’, brushing it in a way that makes it look fuller, or to hide the visible scalp which I don’t understand. I love him as is, hair or no hair, but until recently I never thought it to be an issue for men.
They seem to go through life with not a care in the world and just take life as it comes. Well, my husband, at least does, so to see him start to ‘make an effort’ in hair care came as a surprise to me. But I know he, too, is not alone in what he is going through.
Many men and women struggle with early-on receding hairlines. They try sprays, dyes, or crazy hairstyles to cover it up. Some were successful, others not so much. But now, after having done some research in a bid to help my other half overcome this self-consciousness phase, I came across a new procedure on the market that seems to be taking off. Micropigmentation.
You can find out more about how it all works, the in-depth processes and what’s involved here https://www.scalpmicropigmentationclinics.com/los-angeles/. Essentially it is a method of ‘tattooing’ your scalp to fill in the gaps, cover scars, and give the effect of a close shave, pretty much what most men opt for anyways these days.
Advantages of Micropigmentation.
- Coverage. You may have had a nasty accident and boldly come out the other side, but have been left with a reminder you’d rather not see or have to explain about when meeting people. Having the scar covered with a non-surgical procedure of a tattoo can increase the quality of life you live, give you confidence, and change your life.
- Patches. The worst fear I’ve heard from men is going bald in patches, a little bit here a few strands there, and it’s not a good look. Filling in those spaces can create an overall symmetry of hair on the head and even close up most people wouldn’t be able to tell the difference, it simply looks like a fresh haircut, but every day. Win-win.
- Thinning. You may still have a full head of hair but you can see through the locks to your scalp, I have seen this on my mother-in–law and she struggles daily with blow-drying and trying to ‘poof’ it up. Having this procedure creates a fuller look at the roots of the hair, thus resulting in a healthier, thicker-looking hairstyle.
