How to Maintain a Shaved Head
Whether you do it just for the aesthetic or to disguise hair loss, shaving your head is a great choice. Shaved heads still require upkeep, though. Here are some tips to maintain a healthy scalp and a nice, smooth shave:
- Although one of the advantages of a shaved head is reduced shower time, shaved heads still need love. Keeping a good shampoo and conditioner on hand will reduce that prickly feeling that occurs when the hair starts to grow back.
- As summer approaches and the days grow longer, it becomes easier and easier to get a sunburn. Your scalp is just as prone to burning as the rest of your body! A decent sunscreen should reduce the risk of a burned scalped. Pro tip: a lot of moisturizers also come with built-in SPF. Investing in a moisturizer that contains SPF can help protect from burns while also keeping your scalp soft and smooth.
- Consider other methods of protection against the sun, such as a baseball cap or other hat, especially if you’re going to be outside for long periods of time.
- When shaving your head, make sure your razor is sharp! A dull razor can lead to a poor shave, irritated skin, and ingrown hairs.
Sometimes, we need a little outside help keeping up with a shaved head. Scalp micropigmentation is one of many ways to maintain a natural looking shaved head, especially if you are experiencing hair loss. If you have a receding or uneven hairline, bald patches, or are completely bald, scalp micropigmentation can give you the appearance of a full, smooth head of shaved hair.
Scalp micropigmentation is a state-of-the-art procedure that permanently reverses the appearance of hair loss. Our expert technicians will inject custom-blended pigments into your scalp, creating many tiny dots that resemble real, 3D hair follicles. These dots will blend in seamlessly with your existing hair, giving you the exact look you want in a completely natural way. You won’t be able to tell where your real hair ends and your scalp micropigmentation begins!
