When Can I Wash My Hair After Smp

Posted by Mary Shoufield on

So you are all set for scalp micropigmentation. The scalp artist gives you a list of SMP aftercare tips to follow for best results. Now you might be wondering whether you can wash your hair after the procedure. Well, there’s usually a 4-day gap after the session before you can think of rinsing your hair. After the 4-day period, you can wash your hair with a gentle shampoo and water. Avoid using harsh chemicals though.

After the first SMP session, your scalp should have tiny scabs until 4 days. The scabs are attached to the pigment in the upper layer of the epidermis. Since the scalp has not yet healed in the initial days, there is a high risk of infection due to exposure to the elements. You want the scabs to heal and fall off naturally. Unfortunately, if scabs fall off prematurely, there is a risk of them pulling the pigment along. You don’t want that, right?

That’s the reason healing process is so important. You should allow your scalp to heal properly and not spoil the fun that waits you after the skin has healed. Avoid sweating too much in the initial period. Make sure you don’t expose your scalp to the sun.

During the 21-day treatment cycle, you ought to take care of your scalp for a total of 12 days and be extra careful. Avoid the use of alcohol or irritants that can cause the scabs to fall of unnaturally.

When should you moisturize your scalp?

How long do you need to wait for moisturizing the scalp?

Well, you may want to avoid grooming or moisturizing the scalp for at least 4 days after each SMP session. When you wait for the right time to moisturize the scalp, your recovery will be quick and hassle free.

You must avoid any type of shaving, scrubbing, shampooing for four days after the procedure.

What to do for itchiness?

This period after the procedure will make your skin a little more sensitive. That means you may experience itching. Now you don’t have to be hard on your scalp. Rather, be very kind and gentle. Use the best aftercare products to soothe an irritated scalp.
