Even though scalp micropigmentation is becoming increasingly popular, just like all good inventions, there are controversies and myths one should stay away from. Some people will tell you it’s a waste of money and others will give you accounts of several “friends” and their horror stories. It’s interesting because all of the clients we’ve had so far, everyone has had nothing but praise for the procedure. So, if you’re on edge about whether or not you should get scalp micropigmentation done, here are a few myths you should ignore: 

It Doesn’t Look Natural 

This is not true because the main focus and goal of scalp micropigmentation is that the results should look as natural as possible. The artist will make sure they blend the shade used with your skin’s tone. A professional has the right tools and expertise to make sure nothing looks artificial. 

Since Hair is 3D, The Pigmentation Will Not Look Like Hair 

For this, you will need to keep your hair shaved. So, if your hair grows within 2 to 3 days, it will look slightly odd but nothing will look out of place. Scalp Micropigmentation looks best on people with a shaved head. 

It Will Quickly Fade Away

This is not true. The goal of scalp micropigmentation is to give it a natural look that doesn’t fade away within a couple of weeks. Scalp micropigmentation is similar to tattooing so you don’t have to worry about washing the pigmentation off. It will last for at least 2 to 3 years and you will need a touch-up once during that time. 

Scalp Micropigmentation is Expensive

The reason why most people believe SMP is expensive is because it’s new technology. But it all depends on the facility you’re availing the services from. Of course, some facilities charge more but others offer a good price. At Simply Scalp, we offer market competitive prices and various discounts to clients. This is because we prioritize your needs more than anything else. Our scalp micropigmentation treatments are designed with your requirements in mind. Our experts will guide you through the process and help you figure things out step-by-step. To book an appointment or to speak with one of our customer representatives, feel free to contact us.

In the 21st century, parenting has changed drastically. Technology has saved a lot of time for parents to spend some time with their children. But technology is not limited to parents and their work; it is also in their children's hands. The time saved by technology is substituted by the time children spend on their gadgets now. Parents are, in fact, more disconnected from their children than ever before. All is not lost; there are many ways to rebuild that connection with your children. All you need to do is understand how to use technology and age-old parenting wisdom together to become super parents. Here are some ways to connect with your children at a deep level: 

1. Playing Together

 Children play all the time; it's in their genes. From outdoor sports to indoor games and now smartphone games, children always look for entertainment through playing. The only way to have a great time with them while they are playing is to join them. A good way to start is to let them know that you don't know how to play the game they are playing. Even if you do, you can pretend. You have to let your ego down for this. When you ask them to teach you how to play, they have already had a partner to play with, and so they would welcome you to their 'tribe'. Once you hit it off, you can recommend other games to play, and since now you're a playmate, they can play any game with you. You can gradually add games that help them gain information and learn life skills, so you always work as a parent. 

2. Learn Valuable Skills

 Children might seem resistant when asked to learn something new, but the truth is quite the opposite. Children are always looking for something new, but only as long as it is something enjoyable. The trick is to design learning materials so entertaining that children take it as their playtime to indulge in such activities. Will Braingames has recently published a book, Tips and Tricks for Teaching Your Kids Valuable Skills. She has shared many interesting activities to learn counting, reading, spelling, metaphors, observation, and organisation. Her book extracts her learning of children's psyche and what has worked for her while upbringing her children and grandchildren. The book is her way of sharing her precious experience with the world. The kids-related activities are not just fun for the children, but they provide parents with the learning of how to design their own lessons for their children. They can understand how visuals and their details can indulge a child in the learning process and then make their own visuals to teach something valuable. 

3. Talking And Listening

 Children like to share everything. Since they haven’t spent as much time in the world as you have, there are many things that they see and experience for the first time. They are immediately excited to share those events with you, even if it is seeing a sleeping kitten. They will always ask you to leave everything and look at what they are showing you. It's a challenge, but you have to take your mind off whatever you are doing, look at their discovery, and appreciate or enjoy what they are showing. Consider this time as your investment in developing their personalities without feelings of neglect. The best way is to start your conversation with them with a question about their favourite cartoon, favourite sport, or time with their best friend. Once there is a flow of conversation, they will share all their secrets, preferences, and, most importantly, what they want to be when they grow up. Talking is the first step for you to become your child's best friend. 

4. Learn To Play Music

 Playing a musical instrument is one of the life skills that show you truly enjoy life. While many parents hire tutors and buy expensive musical instruments to make their kids great players of an instrument. But, they rarely ever join the learning process with them. If you want your child to learn how to play the guitar, you should learn to play it first. You can also take the lessons with them to feel that they are already ahead by learning to play the instrument at an early age compared to you. Confidence works wonders in the learning process and also allows you to spend more time with your child. 

5. Making House Chores Exciting

 House chores cannot be ignored or avoided, but you can enjoy them while doing your house chores. When you include your children in the house chores and tell them that they form a critical part of the team on a challenge to complete the difficult task. If it weren't for them, the task could not be completed. To add a cherry on top of the challenge, you can set a reward for the best contributor. Even if you do most of the work, they will feel like an important part of the team. Next time around, they will ask to do a bigger part in the house chore, and this will continue until they are fully capable of completing the house chore independently. 

6. Picture Perfect Memories

All parents take pictures of their children when they are young, especially in the first few years of their lives. But most parents don’t get time to view those pictures again. A good idea is to have a picture session with your children when you sit together and look at old photos of them from their crib to the present. It helps them realise how you have taken care of them when they are too small to do anything. You can also recreate the photos from the past with the same gestures and positions to keep the traditions going. It will reignite your relation with them. If you have some great pictures, you can also get customised products like mugs, T-shirts, calendars, or keychains that have your picture with your children. It will remind them each day what they mean to you so that your relationship is never weakened. Children are more connected with the W-Fi than their parents today. But with these tips, you can enter their life and share the most precious moments with them. Remember to prepare well and invest not just with your money but with your time and your intention to raise them as wonderful people.

The UK’s government has decided to instruct all the relevant authorities of buildings taller than 11 Metres to get a suppression system installed. However, there is not a single guarantee that exempts buildings lower than 11 Metres from catching fires

It’s not only hearts that catch fire when experiencing a steamy romance, most of the time, it is buildings and peoples homes. As for buildings that are taller than 11 Metres, the United Kingdom’s Government has already decided to make mandatory the installation of fire suppression systems. But what fire suppression should you opt for, which is the most suitable for your building? Let’s start by looking at the law first, and then we will discuss why you need a water mist system, to be specific.

Law? What Law?

According to Fire and Rescue Incident Statistics, 528,601 cases were registered this past year. Even though it’s a 3% decrease compared to 2019, it is still a considerable number. To catch up with the problem of fire breakouts, the United Kingdom’s government decided to introduce a new law this past year, stating that each building that is higher than 11 Metres should have a fire suppression system. So now, if we are clear with that, we can move on to discussing the reasons why you should get a Water Mist System. 

Reasons To Get A Water Mist System.

Water Mist System Detects Heat.

 That’s one of the best things that it does. Instead of reacting to smoke, it detects fire through the heat. And so the advantage of that is that the fire is caught before it’s too late. This is how the water mist system takes care of the fire before it’s too late. The fire gets cut off at the early stage of its development, which is safe and unique at the same time. 

The Water Mist System Doesn’t Only Suppress Fire. It Also Suppresses The Smoke.

 Fire is not the only problem when the building is on fire. The smoke that it creates is also deadly on its own. So deadly that 30% of deaths in fire-related incidents are reported due to smoke inhallation. Smoke from a fire makes it hard to breathe. That’s why laying your head down to the floor in a burning room is a life-saving hack. This safety action keeps you breathing better than if you were standing. 

Fire Is Extinguished Without Drenching Your Stuff

 When a building is on fire, the fire itself is not the only pain that eats you as you watch the building. What also bugs you out, is that all of your stuff will be completely drenched from top to bottom, when the fire is settled. But with the water mist system, that is not the case. Water mists extinguish the fire without showering your stuff. So one of the strategies of water mist systems is to protect your possessions from getting burnt and wet at the same time. That may sound doubtfull, but that’s what the water mist system does. 

Water Mist System Is The Hottest Product To Cool Down The Temperature

 Water mist systems cool off the unbearable temperature that results from the fire breakout. Thus, the Water Mist System makes it easy for people to breathe appropriately and evacuate safely while the fire, smoke, and room temperature are being taken care of. 

Water Mist System Uses Water Efficiently

 The Water Mist System is all about using water efficiently to fight off the fire breakout situation. Just as the name suggests, it doesn’t utilize large amounts of water to handle the situation. And the best part about it is that the efficient use of water is not for the sake of efficiently using it. Instead, the primary goal is to save your stuff while fighting the smoke and the room temperature alongside. Water mist systems are a highly efficient product when it comes to managing the whole fire breakout situation. That’s because the system moves beyond just eliminating fire. Instead, it focuses on the further consequences it has created and aims to solve them. 

Let’s Wrap It Up

The government in the United Kingdom has decided to instruct all the concerned authorities of the buildings taller than 11 Metres to install a fire suppression system. However, there is not a single guarantee that exempt buildings lower than 11 Metres are not subject to fire breakouts. So it is highly recommended to get a suppression system installed regardless of the size of your building. So now, the question is, “What suppression system do you need or is best to install?” The answer to that is the Water Mist System. That is a cutting-edge technology when it comes to suppressing fires.
