Premature Hair Loss
Some people experience hair loss at an extremely young age. It could be due to a hormonal imbalance, medical condition, or genetics, but it’s not uncommon to see someone in their early years suffering from a receding hairline. More often than not, these people don’t always know how to make sense of their hair loss. It can take a toll on someone’s self-confidence and leave them extremely self-conscious.
Hair loss can be scary, especially at a young age. A lot of people aren’t aware of the different ways to cope with hair loss, and are even less aware of the solutions near them. For instance, Manchester is chock-full of hidden gems that can help you fight back against premature hair loss. Here are the top ways to battle hair loss if you’re in Manchester!
- Wigs. No matter where you are, you can always look around for a good wig. Many specialty wigmakers take custom orders, so that the wig you purchase is indistinguishable from your natural hair. Many modern wigs allow for heat styling, so there’s no need to worry about melting the wig while getting ready for a night out! You might even be able to order a wig through your insurance, depending on whether or not your hair loss occurred due to a medical condition.
- Scalp Micropigmentation. There’s no shortage of clinics in Manchester that specialize in scalp micropigmentation, or SMP for short. SMP uses ink to fill in sparse areas of hair on the scalp, allowing you to go out looking and feeling your best. The ink blends in with your natural hair to create a lush head of hair. This is also an incredibly customizable look; you can take control of how your hair looks with this type of styling. (For those of you outside of Manchester, another great option is Scalp & Art in Nottingham.)
- Embracing the bald look. If you want what is probably the fastest solution for combatting hair loss, consider going for a fully-shaved head. The “Mr. Clean” look is coming back into style, with many people without hair loss voluntarily shaving their heads. Frequent shaving is required to maintain the smooth, soft appearance. While this might be a bit of a time commitment, it’s still a simple and inexpensive alternative to hiding hair loss.
- Hair restoration surgery. You’ve heard of hair transplants, or “plugs,” as they are often called. This procedure has been around for decades, and has only gotten better with time. That being said, this procedure is highly dependent on the amount of healthy hair follicles throughout the head. If you’re experiencing thinning hair all over, this may not work for you. Look up the one nearest you and schedule a consultation if this sounds like something that could work for you.
Hopefully this list inspires you to venture out of your comfort zone and take back control of your style. What works for others might not work for you, but there’s no harm in trying. Don’t be afraid to try one (or all) of these options until you find a style that works for you!
