The Do-Not-Do List For Hair Loss
If you are suffering from an advanced stage of hair loss, you may start to look at extreme ways of hiding your baldness. With so many great options available these days to restore your hair or at least camouflage it in a dignified way, please do not resort to these drastic measures:
If you are looking for a good camouflage agent to disguise a bald spot, we recommend using a product like Toppik. Some low-cost solutions will only make your head look worse. Some spray-on camouflage products will leak when they get wet, so you will have that “mascara running after crying” look every time it rains or you sweat. Not really the look that you were going for when you applied this in the first place.
Trying to cover up your bald area with a cheap hairpiece may be all right as part of a Halloween costume, but it definitely won’t fly in your everyday life. A cheap wig can be seen from a mile away. If this is the choice that you have decided on to restore your hair, then it is very important to get a high-quality hair piece. Some high-end hairpieces actually look very natural and can even be styled like normal hair.
Poorly Done Hair Extensions
If not done properly by an expert, hair extensions can not only look ridiculous, but can actually be doing even more damage to your hair and contributing to even further hair loss. Seek the advice of an experienced hair stylist with a good reputation if you are choosing to use hair extensions.
This classic hairstyle for bald men is most times not fooling anyone. Some people such as Donald Trump can make a brand with this hairdo, but most of the time it looks ridiculous. (It still looks ridiculous on Trump; he is just recognized for how silly it is!) Getting a hair style that compliments your bald areas is a much better option. A shorter haircut with layers will oftentimes help or even colouring your hair to not draw as much attention to the contrast between your hair and scalp can create the illusion of less hair loss.
Old-School Hair Plugs
With the technology of hair transplant techniques being so advanced today, there is absolutely no need to ever have to use the hair plug technique any more. FUE (follicular unit extraction) is the latest technique used and can create a natural hairline with very minimal scarring. The process itself is a non-invasive procedure with very little downtime. It can be repeated numerous times based on the available amount of donor hair.
Growing It Long In The Back
Even celebrities like Kim Mitchell and Dwight Yoakam have sported this awesome look of the long hair in the back with no hair on top that we used to see in the past. This is NOT an awesome look! If you are currently doing this, STOP! This is the best way to draw the most attention to your hair loss. The best style of haircut also happens to be the latest and trendiest fashion. Get a professional fade-style haircut that tends to keep most of the attention away from your bald areas while keeping you looking up-to-date. We include a professional haircut and style from the experts at Miami Fades in all of our hair transplant packages.
