Has Chris Eubank Jr. Had Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP)?

Chris Eubank Jr SMP hair loss

What hair loss treatment(s) does Chris Eubank Jr use?

British boxer, Chris Eubank Jr, looks to be following in his father's footsteps, and we're not only talking about the boxing. We're also talking about the state of his hair. 

Eubank Jr's hairline looked to be receding during his late twenties, but now, well into his thirties, he appears to be sporting a suspiciously perfect hairline. 

This triggered rumours that Chris Eubank Jr had undergone some sort of treatment for his hair loss, but he himself has not come out and admitted to having anything done. 

Despite his denials, it is absolutely clear to see that Chris Jr has indeed had some sort of restoration work done on his hairline. The first guess would be that he underwent a hair transplantation procedure, but then upon further inspection, this doesn't seem to be the case. 

It is more likely that Chris Eubank Jr has had a scalp micropigmentation procedure (SMP) done, which isn't actually surgical, but instead, it's more like a tattoo that is drawn onto the scalp in order to cover thinning areas, and in Chris Jr's case, his hairline.  

What is Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP)? 


Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) is a procedure that is used to create the illusion of shaved hair, stubble, or greater density in hair-bearing areas that have lost hair or require augmentation.

Men with hair loss usually turn to SMP because it is non-surgical, safe, and convenient. There is also no need to take medication or harmful treatments. 

Every case is different, but generally a hair tattoo will begin to fade more significantly between 4-6 years after the initial treatment has been completed. This is only natural, as you see with a regular tattoo. SMP patients can simply go back for top-up and refill treatment. 

SMP doesn't grow hair or change your natural hair growth. It's not a hair loss treatment. It also won't cause hair loss or damage your existing hair follicles. Scalp micropigmentation is a way to make it look like you have fuller, thicker hair.

Unthin Hair Loss Treatment Spray for Men

Unthin hair loss treatment for men review

Unthin Topical Finasteride for Treating Male Baldness 


Unthin is a Pharmacist-approved treatment spray that combines the most common treatments for reversing hair loss on the market (Finasteride and Minoxidil); reducing DHT (the main cause of male hair loss) while at the same time re-energising blood flow to hair follicles to encourage regrowth.

This potent treatment spray is suitable for common male hair loss types such as excessive thinning, receding hairlines and balding at the crown region.

This is a daily topical spray that combines the two medically approved hair loss treatments: Minoxidil and Finasteride into one hard working formula. As effective as this spray can be, it also comes with the risk of negative side-effects. 

Severe side-effects from finasteride include: 
  • erectile dysfunction
  • low libido 
  • skin rash
  • feminisation
  • depression
  • fatigue 
  • breast enlargement in men
  • discharge from nipples
Severe side-effects from minoxidil include: 
  • weight gain
  • skin rash
  • itchy scalp 
  • headaches 
  • dizziness 
  • fatigue
  • excessive hair shedding 

Unthin spray is a prescribed treatment, therefore you won’t find it on the shelves in any shops; it is available exclusively through the Unthin website, where a registered clinician will check over your order and approve your treatment plan.


Does Unthin treat hair loss in men effectively? 


As effective as Unthin hair loss treatment spray can be, it should be noted that it is a medical drug, and like with any medical drugs, this treatment can give some negative side-effects, some of which can be long term, and even permanent. 

Before using this product, it would be wise to seek advice from your doctor, or from a qualified trichologist, as a precautionary measure. Either that, or seek safer alternatives.

Stop Hair Loss With This Treatment Plan That Really Works!

stop hair loss with this treatment plan that really works

Best treatments to stop hair loss effectively


Tackling hair loss is no easy task, but that doesn't mean it's impossible.  Although there is no cure for male/female pattern baldness, there are still treatments and techniques that can help slow down and even stop the effects of excessive hair shedding. 

For most people, the hardest part is knowing where to start. There are many treatments for hair loss that are available on the market, but in reality, most of them do not work. 

So, in this post, we go through some key treatments and techniques that can enable you to reduce hair loss, and even promote some stronger, healthy hair growth... 

hair loss treatments that work




Scalp Massage Shower Brush


Believe it or not, regular scalp massaging can indeed help with hair loss issues. According to research, scalp massaging increases hair thickness by stretching the cells of hair follicles. This, in turn, stimulates the follicles to produce thicker hair.

Get yourself a scalp massage shower brush (you can easily find one for under £10 on Amazon), and use it when you wash your hair. Gently rub the brush all over your scalp for a couple of minutes during your shower session. It won't work miracles, but it can help with the stimulation of hair growth, particularly when used with a good shampoo. 

Derma roller 


Micro needling has become very popular with men and women treating hair loss. While used as an anti-aging skin treatment, micro needling has also shown to be a good method for treating hair loss. There's even evidence that it can help a special type of hair loss known as alopecia areata. The same process of creating wounds in the skin is also thought to regenerate the health of the hair follicles.

Get yourself a derma roller for under £10 on Amazon, and start micro needling your scalp, with particular focus on the hairline and crown regions. Do this about twice a week. Derma rolling has also been shown to work well in conjunction with minoxidil. 

HR23+ hair supplement 


HR23+ hair supplement is the leading non-medical hair loss treatment for men and women. If you aren't keen on using medical treatments that can give negative side-effects, then HR23+ is a great alternative that's safe and effective. HR23+ has shown to work in 9 out of 10 users, with many users noticing visible improvements in their hair within just weeks. 

Users of this winning supplement have reported a mark reduction in hair loss, and a thicker, faster rate of hair growth. Take 2-4 capsules a day, depending on what works best for you, individually. 


Onion Juice 


Ok, so here's a slightly left field hair loss treatment, but before you laugh, hear us out. When added to the hair and scalp, onion juice, yes that's right, onion juice, can provide extra sulfur to support strong and thick hair, thus preventing hair loss and promoting hair growth.

The sulfur from onions may also help promote collagen production. Collagen in turn helps the production of healthy skin cells and hair growth. Many men and women have experienced excellent results in their hair from applying onion juice to their scalp a few times a week.

Biotin (Vitamin B7)


Biotin does not prevent hair loss, but it does help promote hair growth, which makes it a great supplement to take with a good hair loss prevention plan. 

Biotin, also known as vitamin B7, stimulates keratin production in hair and can increase the rate of follicle growth. It is not stored for long in the body - most of yours is from the foods you eat. In order to be effective, it needs to be consumed.

Green Tea Shampoo


Green tea may support healthy hair growth and regrowth. In one small study, researchers added topical green tea-derived EGCG extract to the scalps of three participants with alopecia. After 4 days, the participants experienced significant increases in hair growth activity. 

Green tea will not perform miracles, but it can be a great additional hair growth promoter to use with your hair loss prevention treatment plan. Grab any brand of shampoo (as long as it's green tea) for under £10 on Amazon, or any supermarket/pharmacy.

Is Roger Federer Going Bald?

Roger Federer hair loss

Which tennis players are losing their hair?


Roger Federer is one of the greatest athletes that has ever been, but for all his greatness, his hair has proven to be his one weakness. 

Playing professional tennis into his 40s, it seems that Roger's locks are the only part of his body that have failed to regenerate. But hey, no one's perfect, right? 

As Roger Federer steps away from playing tennis, we look at his hairline, along with his tennis rivals, and evaluate what stage of hair loss (if any) they are at. 

Roger Federer 


Arguably the greatest ever person to play tennis, Roger Federer has been showing clear signs of hair loss over the past decade, or so. Roger seems to suffer from a receding hairline at the front temples, measuring around Norwood Hamilton 2-3. 

Now in his 40s, Roger's hair doesn't actually look too bad. If he can maintain the hair he has already got, then he should age well as he enters his 50s and beyond. Minoxidil and HR23+ are good hair loss preventers that should help him slow down the shedding. 

Rafael Nadal 


Clay court king, Rafael Nadal, has also suffered from thinning hair over the past decade. Rafa's hair has got progressively thinner, with overall thinning, rather than just one area of the scalp. 

rafa nadal hair loss

There is no doubt that Rafa's baldness has now exceeded Norwood Hamilton 4, which makes it very difficult to restore the hair. Although Rafa has had a transplant, it seems that his thinning is too aggressive to stop. It is inevitable that the Spanish superstar will lose all his hair at some point soon.

Novak Djokovic 


Serbian legend, Novak Djokovic, doesn't appear to have any problems with his hair, and it looks as though he will have just as much of it in his 60s, as he does today.

Novak's hairline is so thick and strong that he wouldn't even register a measurement on the Norwood Hamilton scale. He's just blessed with great genes!

Andy Murray 


British player, Andy Murray, is another one of the 'Big 4' to suffer from male pattern baldness. Murray's hair has been getting progressively thinning since his late 20s, with recession at the frontal hairline, and thinning at the crown region of his scalp. 

Andy Murray hair loss

Murray is not at Norwood Hamilton 3-4, which means treating the issue will prove difficult, but not impossible. Hair loss prevention is Andy's best bet going forward.

Stan Wawrinka


Roger's fellow Swiss player, Stan Wawrinka, doesn't appear to be experiencing any real hair loss. Now in his late 30s, 'Stan the man' still has thick looking locks, and a strong hairline. It would be a big surprise if he still didn't have hair when he enters his middle age years.

Hair Products to AVOID During Autumn Season

hair loss products to avoid during autumn

Prevent Autumn Hair Loss by avoiding these products...

For those of you who didn't know, autumn season can actually be a nightmare for our locks.  Seasonal hair loss occurs most during the autumn months, which can leave the hair looking tired, thin, and unconditioned. 

In most cases, seasonal hair loss is a temporary phase, and normal hair growth usually resumes as the winter months approach, however, many men and women who suffer from seasonal hair loss are keen to minimise the issue as safely and as effectively as possible. 

We have already covered a range of effective treatments for hair loss during autumn season, so in this article, we go through some products and treatments to avoid during fall. 


Minoxidil

Minoxidil is an FDA approved treatment for men and women suffering with androgenic alopecia (male/female pattern hair loss). It can be effective for minimising hair loss and promoting hair growth, but it should only be used for permanent hair loss types.

The problem with minoxidil is that it can cause extreme shedding during its early phases, which is something you will want to avoid if you are only experiencing temporary hair shedding during a certain season. Minoxidil is a treatment that should be used over a long period of time, so using it to treat seasonal hair loss may cause more harm than good. 


Shampoo & Conditioner

Ok, so we're not saying that you should completely avid washing your hair with shampoo and conditioner, because shampooing and conditioning is actually good for your locks (if you're using the right products). 

What we are saying is that over-shampooing/conditioning can aggravate the hair, particularly if it is already prone to thinning and falling out. Lessen your shampoo usage to 1-2 times a week, maximum, and make dry shampoo your new best friend. 


Heat Styling Products

This one should go without saying, but we'll remind you, anyway. Try to avoid using heat styling products like hair dryers and hair straighteners, because the heat can cause serious damage to the hair, which is the last think you want if you are already thinning. 

If you have to use these types of devices, then at the very least, turn the heat setting down to a cooler mode. Damage limitation is better than nothing. 


Hair Brush

Again, we're not suggesting that brushing your hair can cause hair loss, but what it does do is aggravate the strands, which can lead to hair fall and damage if one is already prone to excessive hair shedding. 

If you are an avid hair brush user, then consider substituting the brush for a comb with wide teeth. Be gentle when running it through your hair, and try to avoid pulling. 


Medication

Medical products are often a major reason as to why people lose so much hair. We understand that some medications are essential, and therefore cannot be avoided, but try to seek alternatives that are less harmful to your hair, where possible. 

Most medications are generally considered to be bad for the hair, but there are some out there that will cause less damage, so speak to your doctor about this.  


Stress

Ok, so it's not technically a product, but try to avoid stressing too much, if you can. The combination of stress and seasonal shedding is not great for the hair. It can cause excessive shedding, which is certainly not something that you want. 

Stress can be countered with a healthy diet, plenty of exercise, and meditation.

Reverse Hair Loss with These 5 Simple Tips

5 ways to stop hair loss

By Melanie Diggs

I started suffering from androgenic alopecia (female pattern baldness) at an early age. I think I was in my early twenties when I first started noticing my hair getting thinner, with large clumps of strands on my hair brush, and in my shower plug hole every day.

It is unusual for a woman to suffer female pattern baldness as early as I did, as it is more common in men, however, I happened to be one of the very unlucky few women that experienced hair loss at such a young age. 

At fist, I thought it could just be a case of seasonal hair loss, or even stress-related shedding, but my wishful thinking was soon debunked when I went to see a specialist about the issue, and she confirmed that I was indeed experiencing a case of androgenic alopecia. 

I am now 31, and it's been around ten years since I started my battle with hair loss. I'm pleased to say that I am winning the battle, and much of that success is down to 5 key things... 

How did I reverse my hair loss? 


Treating hair loss isn't an easy task, because with these types of treatments, results tend to vary from person to person. I knew it wouldn't be easy, but I wasn't willing to go down without a fight, so I started researching treatments and ways that I could halt the excessive shedding, at the very least. 

From my research, findings, and practices, here is how I managed to halt the hair loss, and regrow much of the lost hair. I am not a specialist in hair loss, this is just my story and what worked for me...

Headstands can stimulate hair growth


I know it sounds crazy, but apparently, increasing blood flow to your head can help prevent hair loss and even stimulate hair growth. Now, this hasn't been scientifically proven, but I decided to give it a try, anyway, just to see if it would make any difference to my hair.

I currently do headstands for 15 minutes, three times a week. That's it. I have been doing this routine for around 12 months, and I have definitely noticed vast improvements in my hair. The texture and thickness of my strands appears fuller, and I experience much less hair fall. 

I also find this practice very relaxing - some form of meditation. 

Massaging the scalp can stimulate hair growth 


I had read many times that regular scalp massaging could help stimulate hair growth, and even hair regrowth. According to research, scalp massage increases hair thickness by stretching the cells of hair follicles. This, in turn, stimulates the follicles to produce thicker hair.

It's also thought that a scalp massage may help dilate blood vessels beneath the skin, thereby encouraging hair growth. So, with this in mind, I thought I would at least give this method a try, after all, it costs nothing, and it's very easy to do. 

I massage my scalp while I am in the shower, three times a week, for about five minutes each time. I find this practice to be very relaxing, and it feels like it re-energises the hairs along the scalp. My hair has definitely benefited from this. 

Green Tea can promote hair growth 


Drinking green tea, or consuming it through a supplement, can give excellent benefits to the hair, including hair regrowth, however, results tend to vary from person to person. 

Rather than drink green tea (which I don't particularly like), I decided to purchase an anti-hair loss shampoo that contains green tea, along with nettle leaf extract, which is also good for hair loss prevention, and hair loss promotion. 

When I apply this shampoo (three times a week), I massage my scalp, as mentioned, for around five minutes, before washing out. The scalp massage, along with this shampoo, has revolutionised my hair.


Eating protein can stimulate stronger hair growth 


We all know that protein is an essential component to the stimulation of healthy hair growth. A high protein diet has shown to be great for the locks, which is why I always aim to get plenty of high-protein foods into my daily eating plan.

Protein-rich foods like eggs, fish, chicken, lentils, beans, and meat, all play their roles in promoting the function of healthier, stronger, and faster growing hair. 

Biotin (Vitamin B7) is essential for the production of a hair protein called keratin. Research has also shown that consuming more biotin can help improve hair growth in people with a biotin deficiency. This is why I take an additional biotin supplement, daily. 

Good supplementation can do wonders for the hair


Multivitamin extract supplements can help prevent the effects of thinning hair, and support the function of healthy hair growth in men and women. I have always used multivitamin extract supplements, and to be fair, they've always worked well for my hair. 

Viviscal and Nutrafol offer excellent benefits to the hair, but HR23+ is widely regarded as the most effective multivitamin extract hair supplement on the market. I started using HR23+ a few years ago, and trust me when I say, it's an absolute gamechanger. 

I have seem visible improvements in my hair from using HR23+, and now I am on it, I wouldn't use any other multivitamin extract supplement for my hair.

Most Frequent Questions About Hair Loss

questions about hair loss answered

The most frequently asked questions about hair loss


Here, at the Hair Loss Review Centre, we get dozens of questions about hair loss from men and women, every single week. We often give detailed answers to any questions about hair loss on our website, but every once in a while, we answer multiple questions on one post.

So, to save us from repeating ourselves, here are some brief answers to the most fequently asked questions about hair loss. 

What is the most common cause of hair loss?


There are many hair loss causes and types, but the most common one, particularly in men, it androgenic alopecia, better known as 'pattern baldness'. 

What are some other common causes of hair loss?


Other common hair loss causes include; seasonal hair loss, menopausal thinning, postpartum baldness, stress-related shedding, and alopecia areata. 

Is there a cure for hair loss?


At present, there is no cure for hair loss. 

Can hair loss be treated?


Although there is no cure for hair loss, there are certain treatments that can help slow down and even stop the effects of excessive hair fall. Hair loss cannot be fully reversed, but some treatments and treatment plans can support the function of healthy hair growth, and promote some hair regrowth. 

What are the most effective hair loss treatments?


Depending on what hair loss type you are treating, there are some viable hair loss treatments on the  market. Medical treatments like finasteride (for male baldness) and minoxidil can treat hair loss to a certain extent, but they do come with the risk of negative side-effects. 

Non-medical treatments like keratinocyte growth factor (KGF) serum, ketoconazole shampoo, and HR23+ hair restoration supplement, can all help prevent hair loss and support hair growth, however, like with all hair loss treatments, results tend to vary from person to person. 

Is my hair loss permanent or will it grow back? 


Some types of hair loss are permanent, and other types are temporary. Androgenic alopecia, for example, is a permanent hair loss type, therefore a long term treatment plan is required to slow down and halt its effects. 

Temporary hair loss types include; seasonal hair loss, postpartum hair loss (in most cases, however, some women experience longer term hair loss after giving birth), and stress-related hair loss. Both permanent and temporary hair loss types can be treated effectively. 


What is the best course of action to stop hair loss?


To reduce hair loss and promote hair growth, a good hair loss treatment plan is needed. Results tend to vary from person to person, but there are some treatments that have been shown to universally treat hair loss, both effectively and safely.
