Scalp Micropigmentation with Grey Hair

If you have greying hair or if your hair is completely grey, there is a strong chance right now that you’re wondering if you can have scalp micropigmentation (SMP) treatment. Hair style, hair colour and how much hair we have – they all adding density to hairplay an important part as we age: in our self expression, in the way we look and how people in society see us.

Having grey hair can become demoralising and a real concern for both men and women who have thinning hair or severe hair loss. This can affect self esteem and self confidence.  The majority of men and women have grey hair by the time they turn 50. For some, grey hair can start in the late teens and early 20’s.

Premature greying of the hair can depend on multiple factors such as:

  • genetic make-up
  • some loose pigments in hair follicles
  • constant immune and flu problems

The majority of men between the ages of 45 to 54 worry more about their hair turning grey rather than actually losing it. But this doesn’t apply to everybody of course.

What Can You Do if You’re Greying and Losing Your Hair?

Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) isn’t totally new and it’s become a virtually pain free, real hair loss / hair replacement solution across the UK and overseas for people with hair and for those with no hair. SMP isn’t just for receding or thinning hair. Professional SMP has been practiced for over 50 years but it started to become more prominent as a hair restoring alternative around 20 years ago.

Is Your Hair Grey and Balding?

There are many hair replacement methods these days – with technological advances comes what can be hyped up as the next best thing. Invasive non-reliable hair transplant surgical treatments are available, as is medication which is scalp micropigmentation with grey hairmeant to limit hair loss or encourage hair growth such as Minoxidil, Finasteride, DHT shampoo, and biotin vitamins to name but a few. These are widely used and still none of these provide long lasting results.

Many side effects can occur – many are long tern – and there are a lot of side effects associated with them. Used over the long term there is also, a growing financial cost attached to the regular use of such potions and pills, so month after month the same drain is on the finances.

Scalp micropigmentation though, is a fantastic hair replacement method which replaces the need for inconvenient expensive shampoos, lotions and creams and surgery.

When you keep the hair short, the hair follicles in the preferred shade of grey can be chosen, and the treatment can be matched to the same shade or tone. It is the job of scalp technician to apply and match the required colour.
