What’s the importance of the Dermaroller? 

The Dermaroller can massage your scalp and increase blood flow to the scalp. 

Studies have shown that increased blood flow to the scalp increases hair growth and thickness.This means that once you start the derma rolling treatment, your hair will not only grow, but it will also become thicker and stronger. 

Derma Rollers work in 3 ways:

  • Promotes production of collagen in your scalp.

  • Supports the growth phase within the hair follicle.

  • Improves blood flow.

The epidermis reacts to the wound by sending more blood to the wound to heal it. Therefore, it is highly recommended to apply a solution after the derma rolling routine. 

How to Derma Roll your scalp:

  • On dry hair, place the derma roller at the edge of where you’d like to target hair thinning or instil hair growth (e.g. the hairline, or the side of the temples,or bald spots).

  • Roll the device slowly over the area, first horizontally then vertically and then diagonally. You should apply enough pressure to penetrate the scalp and feel a slight prickling or tingling, but not enough to cause pain.

  • If there is hair in the area, be sure to move in the direction of the hair strands whenever possible to avoid pulling hairs out

  • After usage make sure to rinse the roller in warm soapy water and dip it in a disinfecting alcohol solution, and allow the tool to dry

  • After dermarolling  apply our hair oil to aid hair growth. You can leave the hair oil in for 1 hour until you wash it. 

Needle size for hair growth

It is usually recommended to start with smaller micro needles to help hair growth – 0.5mm and then moving upwards only if necessary – in most cases, if you notice that there isn’t enough micro-wounding that occurs. Having said that, moving above 1.5mm it is recommended to reach out to a professional to deliver the procedure as risk of scarring becomes too high.

Speak with your doctor before you consider this treatment, especially if you:

  • Have a history of acne, eczema, or open wounds.

  • Take anticoagulants (blood thinning) and other medication.

  • Have a condition that slows down healing, e.g. diabetes.


  • Make sure after using the derma roller, you wash it with soap under warm water, then sanitize it with alcohol and leave it to dry and make sure you put it back in its case and seal it! (Also make sure you invest in a derma roller,don’t just buy anything!) 

  • After putting the oil on your scalp, massage it very well and cover it for 1 hour!

  • Make sure you wash your hair thoroughly with our shampoo, and the last 50 seconds open cold water on your scalp. That will cool down the irritation caused by the derma roller and close the scalp's pores.
