How to Protect Scalp Micropigmentation from fading in the Sun

The first step to protecting your SMP from sun exposure is to avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight. If you must be outside during peak sun hours, which are typically between 10 am and 4 pm, try to stay in the shade or wear a hat that provides full coverage of the scalp.

Another way to protect your SMP from sun exposure is to avoid certain skincare products that can cause irritation of the pigment. This can include products that contain alcohol, fragrances, and exfoliating ingredients.


Additionally, it is important to avoid using hair products that contain harsh chemicals, as these can cause irritation and of the pigment.


Finally, it is important to keep your scalp hydrated and moisturized to protect your SMP from sun exposure. This can include using a light and non-greasy moisturizer that is specifically designed for the scalp, as well as drinking plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated from the inside out.


In conclusion, sun exposure can have a negative impact on the appearance of your SMP, but there are several steps you can take to protect your scalp from sun exposure and maintain the color of the pigment.
