Expert Advice for Men Suffering from Hair Loss

By |2019-10-09T01:31:53-05:00October 8th, 2019|Mens Hair Replacement|Comments Off on Expert Advice for Men Suffering from Hair Loss

Expert Advice for Men Suffering from Hair Loss Androgenetic alopecia or male pattern baldness can be unpredictable. While baldness is associated with age, men can start experiencing thinning hair as early as their twenties. The American Hair Loss Association reports that by age thirty-five, two in every three American men will have started experiencing hair loss; and by the time they reach fifty, 85% of men would have significantly thinning hair. While public perception about bald men has started to shift (recent studies reveal that people perceive bald men as more dominant, capable, and intelligent than men with thinning hair), the fact remains that not all could pull off a shaved head as well as Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson or Sir Patrick Stewart. Additionally, men just prefer to have a full head of hair than sport a bald head. A survey in the United Kingdom revealed that 41% of men would rather be partially bald than entirely bald. Early studies also show that alopecia may result in psychological disorders, particularly anxiety and depression. It’s particularly true for men who suffer alopecia due to chemotherapy. Patients regard hair loss, whether partial or total, as one of the most traumatic effects of chemotherapy treatments. For these reasons, men of all ages and backgrounds search for hair restoration solutions that could give them thick, healthy locks. It’s more than an aesthetic matter for men; it’s also for them to regain the confidence to face people and make themselves be seen and heard by others. The Truth about Topical [...]

Women’s Hair Loss: 6 Causes That Might Be To Blame

By |2019-10-24T11:07:49-05:00June 2nd, 2019|Female Hair Loss|Comments Off on Women’s Hair Loss: 6 Causes That Might Be To Blame

Women's Hair Loss: 6 Causes That Might Be To Blame Female pattern baldness and thinning hair can be painful, devastating, and hard to handle for most women. One in four women have it. Millions more women suffer female hair loss as a result of alopecia, chemotherapy and other medical treatments. However, women can also experience hair loss from unexpected causes such as excessive styling, birth control, stress and more. Continue reading this blog to learn more about these 6 causes of women's hair loss that may be to blame. Excessive Hairstyling Excessive hair styling and coloring can lead to women's hair loss. Firstly, applying heat on a regular basis such as blow dryers, straighteners and curling irons can severely damage the hair. Therefore, intense heat used on a daily basis can lead to significant hair damage that can ultimately cause hair loss. Additionally, when the hair is over chemically saturated from constant coloring or bleaching, the hair is weakened and easily breaks off at the shaft or root leading to temporary hair loss. The good news is that once the chemical reaction stops, the roots can begin growing again. However, if you were to continue coloring your hair or not seek hair restoration treatment, the damage will continue to worsen. Lastly, hair styling such as tight braids or having your hair tightly pulled back can lead to hair loss. If this happens, you’ll notice gradual hair loss, mostly at the hairline, from chronic pulling of the hair. This is also medically known as traction alopecia. Birth Control According to Healthline, Birth control pills can cause hair loss in women [...]

Human Hair Wigs vs. Synthetic Hair Wigs

By |2019-04-27T16:47:05-05:00April 26th, 2019|Hair Replacement, Womens Wigs|Comments Off on Human Hair Wigs vs. Synthetic Hair Wigs

What are the Differences between Human Hair and Synthetic Hair? When you enter a store or hair salon that sells wigs, you may not be able to tell the difference between the human hair wigs and hairpieces and the synthetic ones on display. The reason is at first they look very similar. It isn’t until you take a closer inspection and get information from a hair loss expert that the differences become more evident. Human hair and synthetic both have their advantages. Of course the particular needs of the client are also an important factor when selecting a wig. Human Hair There are 4 types of Human Hair: • Chinese • Indonesian • Indian • European/Caucasian Human hair is usually more expensive because it gives you the natural look of softness, shine, and natural movement that you would expect from real hair. It also has the ability to be cut, styled, and colored. Human hair wigs and hair pieces don’t have the natural oils that the hair growing from our scalp does, so it is important to use the proper products to keep the hair hydrated and conditioned. This should be done daily to extend the life of your human hair wigs or hair piece. Synthetic Hair The fibers built into the synthetic hair can preserve the curls, waves, and hair volume of a wig or hair piece. You cannot color the hair and it can’t be restyled easily. With synthetic hair, it is imperative that you follow the instructions to care for it [...]

Can Diabetes Be a Cause of Hair Loss?

By |2019-10-09T01:23:56-05:00March 12th, 2019|Public|Comments Off on Can Diabetes Be a Cause of Hair Loss?

There is a wide range of emotions that can take place when a person realizes they are beginning to lose their hair. Often their first reaction is to search for a reason why this is happening to them. More and more individuals are looking at their diabetes as the blame for their hair loss. While there is no direct connection when it comes to being overweight and losing hair, it is believed that hair loss can be tied to the same reasons that we struggle to lose weight. If you are unable to keep your weight under control, pre-diabetes can start to take place which in some cases has been associated with the loss of hair. When our bodies can not regulate our body’s blood sugar properly, this can cause an individual to begin to lose their hair. Many often look at their obesity as the cause of their hair loss and this stops them from taking a closer looking into the underlying factors. Outside of genetics, poor nutrition can be a contributing factor for diabetes and it is something that we need to monitor closely if we want to stay clear of suffering from hair loss in the future. If you are someone that eats regularly at fast food restaurants, then you may be more likely to be diagnosed with diabetes later in life. Each of us needs certain vitamins if we want to keep hair loss from ever having a chance to happen. You may not know but there are vitamin deficiencies that [...]

The Impact On Your Self-Image & Self-Confidence One of the main reasons that a man or woman wants to do something about their thinning hair is the fact that it has severely impacted their self-confidence  and they are very much embarrassed by it.

Time and again, clients have told us that having a full head of hair not only improved their physical appearance but it also reduced their anxiety.
