Does Scalp Micropigmentation work with gray hair?
Yes, if you have gray hair you can still benefit from this procedure. It is highly recommended that you cut your hair short beforehand though. This is recommended as the root of the gray hair is darker than the hair itself. Hair will only appear as gray as it gets longer.
