African Amercian Hairline Restoration through Scalp MicroPigmentation (SMP)

Posted in: General

It doesn’t feel good for any guy to watch his hairline disappear. This is particularly true in the case of African American men, where the tight-edged hairline is revered and sought-after culturally.

Because of the importance placed on the hairline, many African American men who have suffered from a receding hairline are turning to hairline restoration through Scalp MicroPigmentation (SMP).  BRAVI has delivered the finest results in the industry in this regard.

African American Hairline Restoration through Scalp MicroPigmentation is a gallery that boasts some of the best, and some of the worst SMP results in the industry.  Choosing your provider carefully will determine which album you’ll fit into.

When properly executed, with correct hairline placement and implementation, African American men look especially sharp with Scalp MicroPigmentation (SMP). The facial frame is re-established, and the look is natural and undectable:

However, a disproportionately large number of the laser SMP correction cases that I see are African American men. The darker skin tones of African American men pose a challenge to inexperienced or ill-equipped SMP providers. In order to make the results “dark enough”, many of them simply reach for the black tattoo ink.


The results? I have seen and treated many of them in my laser room.

African American SMP Laser Repair by BRAVI

Black pigments used by tattoo artists and permanent cosmetics providers turn blue very rapidly on the scalp. Even on the darkest of complexions, the blue hue is visible. Because safe pigments for SMP on African Americans are not currently sold in the open market, the chances of a black man falling prey to bad SMP results is very high, even when seeking treatment from a large multi-location company.

Here’s the issue:  There is a limit to the “darkness” that can be safely achieved with Scalp MicroPigmentation (SMP) in a single session. BRAVI SMP Pigments are specially-formulated for colorfastness, and have been proven to stay warm-toned on our African American clients. At BRAVI, there is a cumulative effect of our pigmentation—each enhancement creates an incrementally darker effect.

The importance of the hairline in African American culture, combined with low industry standards in providing safe pigmentation for dark skin tones creates the perfect storm, and many are falling victim. Black men, please be cautioned:  Choose your SMP Provider with extreme care. Here are some things to look for.

Between our safe pigments and our experienced and expert hairline placement, BRAVI is the proven choice for Scalp MicroPigmentation for African American men.
