Scalp Tattooing is a fantastic treatment for female hair loss, including alopecia.
Thinning hair and hair loss affects many more women than you might think. I was astounded to learn that over 50% of women in their 50’s experience hair loss!
Women lose their hair for many reasons, with alopecia being one of the most common. There are many types of alopecia, including stress related hair loss, alopecia totalis (loss of hair on the scalp) alopecia universalis (loss of hair on scalp and body) and alopecia areata, such as my client has.
Alopecia areata is where patches of hair thin or fall out, leaving bald patches on the head. My gorgeous client had suffered with this from the age of 13 (she’s now 30). She had never worn her hair up and had spent years covering up her scalp with camouflage makeup. Luckily, she also had a mum that was a fabulous hairdresser, so had a little help with clever styling.
Alopecia had really affected my clients confidence and she was always worrying about whether anyone could see her scalp. I actually didn’t realise she had alopecia when we met – she approached me and asked for some information on scalp tattooing and I had assumed it was for someone else! When she showed me the patches, I could see how much time and care she had taken to conceal it. We also went on to discuss the many methods she had tried over the years, from makeup to weaves.
We did three density sessions of scalp tattooing, each around 3-3.5 hours long. I think you’ll agree that the results are amazing. It was so lovely to see my clients confidence grow. The highlight for me was receiving pictures of her at a BBQ with HER HAIR UP! I definitely had a few tears in my eyes when I say those pictures. The pictures were accompanies with the following text message;
“So today I actually had the confidence to wear my hair up – because it looks so amazing thanks to the SMP! I can’t tell you how much of a difference it’s made having this treatment. I am so happy right now! xx”
