When faced with thinning or lost hair, many people consider covering it up with a wig. But is that the best solution? What are the upsides of wigs — and what are the negative effects?
What kind of wig?
There are synthetic hair wigs and natural hair wigs. Natural hair wigs behave like human hair, allowing you to style them, using regular styling products, according to the occasion. You can wash it and brush it like your regular hair and they feel natural to the touch.
They are also very expensive. They do not hold color well and they have to be styled every time you wear them, like real hair. And they have a life span – they do not last forever.
Synthetic hair wigs need to be maintained very carefully and do not respond well to heat. While they are relatively cheap, they can also not fit well if you do not pay for a custom fit.
Plus, in general, wigs are hot to wear, can itch and you can’t really scratch them if other people are watching (ruins the whole illusion) and can easily come off your head at the wrong moment. They need to be thoroughly cleaned regularly or they start to smell like sweat and skin oil.
The solution that always works
An alternative to a wig that really works for many people is scalp micropigmentation. Hairline Ink’s skillful practitioners can give your scalp a three-dimensional look using a thorough knowledge of pigmentation.
The treatment is non-invasive and relatively painless because the needles are much smaller than tattoo needles. We also offer scar camouflage, which is very effective at covering up unsightly scars.
Prices vary according to how much scalp area you want us to cover. We offer Scalp Micropigmentation in over 50 US cities. Call or text us today at 833-HAIR-INK (833-424-7465) to schedule an appointment, learn about our pricing, or get a free quote!
