How to Minimize the Look of a Shiny Scalp

Posted by Mary Shoufield on

If you have a shiny scalp after SMP, it is not a bad thing. But a gleaming scalp might not be your ideal look, though some men look great with a glossy head. After getting SMP done, your scalp might look shinier. You might associate it with a look that does not appear so realistic. So you want to have a matte look and reduce the shiny appearance. There are a few tips to follow.

Shaving tips

Now you must bear in mind that a totally shaved head gets a shiny look as light flawlessly reflects on the scalp. Here you may choose a zero-buzz cut to reduce scalp shine. Even a close shave will help. SMP offers a solution to those who are completely bald as the treatment adds some texture to the scalp, thus reducing the shine.

SMP helps create the illusion of hair stubble for patients whose remaining hair has been shaved. It may take a client a wet shave to achieve the look of a buzz cut.

Sebum control is crucial

That scalp looks shiny because of the sebum produced by the skin. It helps lubricates the skin and prevents dryness. But some people produce more sebum, which gives them a shinier scalp. So it is a good idea to exfoliate the scalp to manage the scalp oil production. Exfoliation removes dead skin cells clogged in the pores. As a result, your scalp will look oily and shiny. Keep it clean to keep that shine under control.

Hydrating or moisturizing your scalp will prevent dryness, thus reducing sebum production. You may want to reach out to a light moisturizer to keep dryness away and reduce the production of scalp oil.
