Movember - Mens Health Awareness month.

November Can Only Mean One Thing…

It’s that time of year again!

The time of year when razors go to rust and loved up ladies begin sporting a lovely red lip rash. You know what I’m talking about…

MOVEMBER! Men’s Health Awareness Month!

The much-loved manly annual event involving the growing of comedy moustaches during the month of November, to raise awareness of men’s health issues, such as prostate and testicular cancer and other male associated charities.

Men across the globe take pride in the fundraising, cultivating their facial fuzz into sculpted styles such as ‘The Trucker’, ‘The Connoisseur’ and the, err…’Ron Jeremy’. Over £346 million has been raised globally since Movember started back in 2003, and there is even an award contest – the Moscars – dedicated to the appreciation of the most inspired designs.

Hair loss – Types of alopecia and Male-pattern baldness

But what if you are a gentleman that is struggling to grow any hair at all, let alone anything extra?

There are many reasons why men may struggle with hair loss. Male-pattern baldness is the most common type of hair loss, and can be particularly difficult to cope with. The loss follows a pattern of a receding hairline, followed by thinning of the hair on the crown and temples, and is a condition that runs in families.

Others may suffer from Alopecia Areata, which is defined by patches of baldness that may come and go. It can occur at any age, and is thought to be caused by a problem with the immune system.

There is also widespread hair loss that can affect your scalp, face and body, and is one of the most common side-effects from cancer treatment chemotherapy.

Hair loss can be difficult to come to terms with, whatever form it takes or reason behind it. The hair on your head and facial features, such as eyebrows and eyelashes, can be a defining part of your individuality. It reflects the image you have of yourself and how you want others to see you. If you start to lose this hair, it can feel as if you are losing part of your identity. This can affect your self-confidence.

How Micro- Pigmentation can help

At Natural Enhancement, we have many male clients that come to us for help in giving them back the appearance of hair, through the means of micro-pigmentation. Whether that be cosmetic tattooing of the eyebrows, permanent makeup eyeliner or ‘hair replacement treatment’ (the application of pigment in the skin to look like hair growing from the scalp) these treatments all make a difference in improving confidence. It can be used as a temporary measure for when hair is due to grow back, or for a more long-term solution to fill out sparse areas and create more definition. Our technicians are proud to have built a reputation on their professional and empathetic approach, as well as their skill at delivering amazing, natural results.
