It’s been a few days since your microblading appointment and you’re ready to wash your hair. But, is it too soon?
It depends on the type of microblading treatment you had. If you had a semi-permanent procedure done with an ink that washes out, then yes, you can wash your hair after microblading. The trick is to not use soap or shampoo that contains detergents or sulfates. Detergents strip your scalp of natural oils and can cause irritation. Sulfates strip away natural moisture from the skin and hair shaft, making it brittle and prone to breakage.
If you have permanent or semi-permanent ink applied to your face or body then it’s best to wait for two weeks before washing your hair in order to give the ink time to set properly.
You can wash your hair after microblading.
As long as you follow the aftercare instructions given by your technician, you can wash your hair after microblading. There are some things that you should do to ensure that there is no damage caused by washing your hair after microblading.
Here are some tips:
- Make sure that you use a gentle shampoo and conditioner. Your skin will be sensitive after the procedure, so it’s best to choose products that are made for people with sensitive skin.
- Try to avoid using any hot water during washing because it might cause irritation on your skin.
- Do not scrub or rub your scalp too hard because this may cause bleeding from the incisions and make them burst open again.
- Do not use any kind of oil-based products such as creams or lotions on your scalp as they may clog up the incisions and prevent them from healing properly.
Your eyebrows will look darker than you expect.
Microblading is a semi-permanent procedure that gives you the option to have fuller, thicker eyebrows. The results are permanent, but it takes time for them to fully heal. You cannot wash your hair or get your eyebrows wet for at least two days after the procedure. This will ensure that your new brows heal properly and don’t get infected.
You should wait until your brows are fully healed before washing them. This usually takes two weeks after the microblading procedure, but it may take longer depending on how sensitive your skin is and how well you care for your brows during their healing process. Your microbladed brows will be darker than they appear now because they contain pigment from the ink used during the procedure. This ink is intended to make your brows appear more natural and blend in with your existing hair color as they grow out over time.
You should avoid wearing makeup for a week or so.
- You should avoid wearing makeup for a week or so. You can wash your hair normally, but avoid getting the microbladed area wet.
- During the healing process, you may notice some redness and swelling for up to two weeks. If you see any sign of infection, such as pain or swelling that does not go away, contact your doctor immediately.
- It is normal for your eyebrows to look dry and crusty after the procedure. To help reduce crusting, apply petroleum jelly or Aquaphor ointment to the brows twice a day until they heal completely (about one week).
- Microblading is a semi-permanent cosmetic procedure that creates the look of fuller, more defined eyebrows, by depositing pigment into the skin.
- The microblading process involves creating fine strokes with a blade on the surface of your skin. This creates tiny incisions in your skin that become microchannels for the pigment to be deposited into. The result is semi-permanent eyebrows that look natural and beautiful.
After your microblade treatment, you should avoid wearing makeup for a week or so. You may wear sunscreen every day if you like but do not apply moisturizer or lotion to your brows until they have healed completely. Your skin will be sensitive while it heals so keep it protected from the sun and try not to touch it too much during this time as well.
When can I wash my hair after microblading?
The best answer is: as soon as you want!
The reason why this question comes up so often is because microblading is a semi-permanent tattoo done in the skin with needles. So, when it’s time for your next wash, there’s always a little bit of apprehension about whether or not it’ll come off or fade quickly.
Of course, we know that once the ink is on your scalp, it’s there to stay. But what most people don’t realize is that there are other factors that can impact how well the color holds up over time. For example:
- The color of your hair – The darker the shade of your natural hair color (whether it’s blonde or black), the more pigment is needed to achieve a bold look. If you have dark hair and want something more subtle, like soft feather strokes, then you may need a touch-up session sooner than someone with lighter locks.
- How often you shampoo – Some people wash their hair every day while others only do it every other day or even less frequently than that!
