Top Hair Loss Solution

If you are dealing with too much hair loss, there could be several reasons behind that. Unless you unlock the cause, you cannot get rid of it, right? You must have heard claims of coconut oil being the best hair loss solution available. Is it really effective as a treatment for hair loss, alopecia, receding hairline, and thinning hair? Well, coconut oil does help supply some nutrients to the scalp, since it is rich in good fatty acids. But it takes a lot of time to show results. Moreover, the results do not show up in every case, depending on the type of hair loss you are experiencing. Health scientists have too many reasons to dispute the effectiveness of coconut oil for hair. So what is the solution then? Well, if you seek a permanent cure for hair loss, then forget everything else and choose scalp micropigmentation in Phoenix Arizona.

What Does Research Say on Coconut Oil as Hair Loss Solution

While research does find proof that coconut oil can reduce the effects of protein loss in hair, there’s still doubt on the effectiveness of coconut oil on preventing male pattern baldness resulting from DHT.

One 2003 study found that coconut oil helps maintain protein levels in hair. You might be surprised to learn that frequent application of styling chemicals, over-brushing, and too much exposure to sunlight and wind might result in the loss of hair protein. No doubt, coconut oil is better than sunflower oil and safflower oil for hair loss. Coconut oil performs better than these two oils in terms of hair loss prevention.

While coconut oil can replenish your hair follicles, it is not a one-cure for hair loss. Its effectiveness might vary from person to person, depending on the extent and type of hair loss. If you are impressed with the claims of coconut oil for hair loss, you may want to use shampoos and hair care products that are formulated with coconut milk and oil. It not only smells good but also makes your hair feel soft and shiny. The best part is coconut oil as a hair loss solution is safe to use and does not cause any side effects.

But it takes time to show up results. If you are fighting serious hair loss in the form of thinning hair, alopecia areta, receding hairline, you may not want to wait for months or years for coconut oil to cover those visible signs of hair loss, which are ruining your looks and personality.

Bottom line

If you observe too much thinning of hair or fast receding hairline, you want to choose a quick-fix solution and not wait endlessly for results. Coconut oil may or may not help your hair loss problem. So instead of waiting for results that might not even show up, it is better to choose a permanent hair restoration solution.

Scalp micropigmentation in Phoenix Arizona gives you a permanent solution to hair loss. SMP helps recreate the look of hair follicles with the help of microneedles to implant matching pigment into the scalp. The best thing about SMP for hair loss is that it gives you a near-natural look so nobody can say you have undergone a hair loss procedure.

Scalp Micropigmentation – Adding the Hairline

So you’ve made the decision to schedule a consultation for scalp micropigmentation: what next? A common concern clients express when considering the procedure is whether the final result will look natural. The good news is, you have a considerable amount of control in that regard. There are a few things for you to assess prior to your appointment, to help your artist appropriately evaluate your goals.

First, we must understand the cause of hair loss: receding hairline or alopecia. Receding hairline, commonly referred to as “male pattern baldness”, is the thinning of hair around both the temples and the crown of the head- creating the appearance of a horseshoe hair pattern.The amount of thinness varies on the individual, and can be caused by aging, stress, diet, hormones, and various health issues. Similarly, alopecia- or “spot baldness”, is random balding throughout the body. The sizing of the baldness is about the size of a coin, and typically not permament. Knowing which catergory you fall into will help determine the density and placement of SMP follicle points needed. Next, there are two factors that dictate which look is most optimal: the depth and the shaping.

Depth is the spacing between the hairline and the glabella- the distinguising facial feature above the nose and between the eyebrows. A low hairline (from browline to hairline) spans between 2-3.2 inches (depending on gender). A medium hairline (most common) ranges anywhere from 3.5-4.5 inches. A high hairline is anything exceeding 4.5 inches.

The shaping is the placement of the front hairline, or centerpoint. Whereas some people prefer to have the centerpoint dip down slightly-creating two arches between the temples, others want the more popular “straight-edge”. A straight-edge approach attempts to mimic the look of a recent trip to the barber.

Overall, an important point to remember is that natural is best. If you had a widow’s peak prior to the hairloss, a similar hairline most likely compliments your particular face shape. However, your SMP artist should also provide valuable insight as to what will look right for you, based off look at your facial profile.

Arizona Scalp Micropigmentation Aftercare

This is a topic that feels necessary to cover, as what one does following each scalp micropigmentation session in Arizona is crucial to the overall success of the procedure. Although fading over time is both natural and inevitable, there are certain steps you- the client- can take to slow down the process and have a healthy scalp/skin in Arizona:

Day 1-7

Apply a post-care ointment- especially prior to showering- at least twice a day for the full seven days. There are several viable over-the-counter options, such as Neosporin, Aquaphor, or A & D. However, we have an aftercare ointment available for purchase on Amazon, eBay, and through our website. The brand is not as important, as it is to accelerate healing and reduce risk of infection.

Day 1-5

No sweating. This includes (but is not limited to) practicing sports, visits to the gym, swimming, hot saunas/bath/jacuzzis, prolonged outdoor sun exposure (those golfing sessions can wait!), and indoor tanning salons. Cutting out these rituals may temporarily pose an inconvenience on your social life, but we assure you it is well worth it. On the other hand, if you have a career that requires any of the aforementioned activities, we recommend you plan ahead to take time off work- at least for the initial healing period.

No soap. Rinse the scalp with only water, keeping the scalp away from being directly beneath the showerhead after getting scalp micropigmentation

Avoid picking, peeling, or scratching the micro pigmented areas. Although this may seem like common sense, touching the scalp is impulsive in human nature. We touch our heads constantly throughout the day, without even noticing. Try your hardest to be mindful of this behavior- which can both produce scarring and remove pigment.

Keep the skin clean. By this, we don’t mean using soap- rather avoiding cross-contamination of your skin from things/places known to harbor germs and bacteria (such as gyms, public restrooms, phones, swimming pools, etc). Treat the area as you would any other open wound or injury- as it is exactly that.

Smoking or drinking alcohol in excess. Both affect the immune system, therefore slowing the healing of wounds.

Day 5-7

Wash scalp lightly with soap and water. No exfoliation.

Remember: Your skin has been through considerable trauma. In order to deposit the pigment into the skin most effectively (into the dermis layer), the needles must first penetrate the outer epidermis (approximately 1mm thick). Doing so disturbs that protective barrier between the two layers, deeming it an open “wound”. By following the above instructions, you give yourself-and your skin- the best opportunity to heal and retain the new pigmentation.
