The Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) process is a game-changer for many people, offering a natural, confidence-boosting answer to hair loss. However, maintaining the appealing aesthetics that SMP provides doesn’t come without all the necessary tools. To ensure you continue to enjoy the benefits of this effective treatment, Elegant SMP has put together a budget-friendly toolkit with products that our own owner, Tommy T., personally endorses. He sports the SMP look consistently and is committed to sharing the best products to enhance both the durability and appearance of your treatment.

Andis 74000 Professional Corded/Cordless Hair & Beard Trimmer

This precision tool ensures your hair remains in the best condition, specifically focusing on keeping your hair close-cut and neat. A vital aspect to remember about SMP is that while your hair is 3D, the pigments are 2D. If your hair grows out too long, the contrast becomes visible, and this trimmer is designed to prevent just that. It features a Zero Gapped, Close Cutting Carbon Steel T-Blade, making it easy for you to keep your hair at the optimal length to complement your treatments.

Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion & Wash Regimen Pack

An often overlooked part of your SMP maintenance routine should be moisturization. This is why we recommend the Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion & Wash Regimen Pack. It includes a nourishing daily moisturizing body lotion and a hydrating body wash, both enriched with soothing prebiotic oat. Moisturizing your scalp twice daily promotes hydration and helps to maintain the vibrancy of your SMP pigments. These products offer a daily source of essential moisturization for your scalp, leaving it nourished and supporting the longevity of your treatment.

Paula's Choice Extra Care Non Greasy, Oil Free Face & Body Sunscreen SPF 50

UVA and UVB rays from the summer sun are notorious for damaging and causing skin ageing. To protect your investment done through SMP treatments, we suggest the Paula’s Choice Extra Care Non Greasy, Oil Free Face & Body Sunscreen SPF 50. Its non-greasy, oil-free formula offers protection against both types of harmful UV rays and is considerably water and sweat-resistant. Besides, using sunscreen reduces the number of touch-up appointments you need, therefore preserving the aesthetics of the treatment longer.

Burt's Bees Baby Shampoo

When it comes to the choice of shampoo, we endorse the Burt’s Bees Baby Shampoo & Wash Set. Free of harsh chemicals and irritants, this mild shampoo and body wash set is safe even for babies’ delicate skin. It is also gentle enough not to interfere with your SMP treatment or cause any unnecessary irritation. It’s a worthwhile investment to ensure you maintain an ideal hygiene routine without compromising your SMP treatment’s integrity.

DermiMatch LLC Zero Shine 2.0

For a product that serves a double purpose of managing shine and maintaining secrecy of your treatments, we suggest DermiMatch LLC’s Zero Shine 2.0. Its matte effect caters to various environments and lighting conditions, ensuring you’re always camera-ready. This product is key in keeping your scalp’s sheen in check, making your SMP treatment discreet yet well-defined.

Skull Shaver Pitbull Silver PRO Electric Head & Face Shaver for Men

Finally, the Skull Shaver Pitbull Silver PRO is a must-have in your toolkit. We recommend that you leave one of these in your bag or in your car. You never know when you need to get your look refreshed for an impromptu social event. This rechargeable, water-resistant 4D rotary shaver is equipped with a lithium-ion battery and offers a cordless USB charging option. While it cuts even closer than the Andi’s clippers, it does not cut as closely as a razor, ensuring an ideal trim.

Bonus: Hat

Don’t toss away those hats just yet! There will be days where you might forget to bring your sunscreen with you and those hats can come in real handy to deal with the sun. Keep one in your car just in case, remember to protect your investment!


While there are toolkits in the market specifically designed for SMP, we prioritize budget-friendly yet effective options. Remember, our list will be constantly updated as the SMP industry evolves.

Elegant SMP is the place to get your scalp micropigmentation if you are interested in quality technique. Not all SMP is the same and your practitioner's training really does matter. For me, understanding how my artist could achieve an authentic looking hairline was very important, and very few SMP artists have the training to achieve that. Tommy at Elegant SMP is a true professional who understands how to get a natural looking result that is difficult to replicate - which is a true testament to his training. My SMP results exceeded my expectations and I would recommend Elegant SMP to anyone who is interested in getting the highest quality work the first time, or repairing SMP work that missed the mark.
