October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month! Pancreatic Cancer is during November.....please, if you know of anyone that is suffering hair loss due to chemotherapy or cancer, Please suggest they stop in for a comfortable, hand-tied wig unit in any color*.

Often as hair stylists, we realize a client is losing hair before they realize it.
Most hairstylists have no clue how to handle this and simply give clients the "it's not gonna grow back" speech, cover it up with a weave, or the dreaded........"I don't know, see a doctor..".

We are the next stop once someone realizes they're losing their hair.
As physicians, dermatologists are licensed in skin issues. We are licensed in how to manage "hair."
After they've seen a dermatologist and may be unsatisfied with intra-lesional shots or simply a bottle of ketoconazole shampoo or clobetasol drops and they're sent on their way, they may be interested in the services of a trichologist.

We specialize in hair loss and scalp issues and how to assist client...

Having optimal ‪#‎redblood‬ cell counts are essential for good HAIR HEALTH.
When a client stops in for an analysis, this is one of my questions during the consultation.
A low red blood cell count shows various things, one being anemia. This may impair the health of hair in the long run.
Have your blood cell count checked and stop in for an analysis if your hair is thinning today!

L.Quarles: Posted on Tuesday, June 07, 2016 8:55 AMshampoo your scalp often!! Most scalp issues may be alleviated when you shampoo more frequently. If you have dry, scaly, red & inflamed skin issues... You need to shampoo more often. Try this trick: massage coconut oil into your skin and scalp, and wrap a moist towel around your head and cover with a plastic cap for 20 mins before you shampoo. Rich in caprylic acid and lauricacid, they break down the Skin Barrier making it easier for the scalp scales to be removed. Also, it is an antibacterial and antimicrobial aiding to the rescue for red and inflamed skin reducing the inflammation. So everyone, if you have issues with your scalp, shampoo your hair often.SBLHairloss in Expressions Salon...

LaRonne : Posted on Sunday, February 28, 2016 2:40 PMA client came in recently written hair loss related to medications and problems resulting from TTP.Over time she suffered anemia, low energy and blood clotting issues. She eventually had to have her uterus removed because of menstrual cycles that never ceased. This in turn led her to a life of medications and endless issues with blood clotting and anemia which results in low hemoglobin and hematocrit levels. This leads to low oxygen being carried to the cells into the capillaries which feed the hair follicle. If there is a systemic issue, usually your hair will let you know. Until an issue can be completely healed and in this case it will not, One will always have problems with hair be...

LaRonne : Posted on Wednesday, April 08, 2015 7:31 PMWomen have issues with thinning in the same manner that men thin as well. The Androgen sites located above the eyebrows and temporal regions are most affected. A woman comes in today complaining of gradual thinning over the past five, ten, 20 years. She has had her uterus removed but ovaries are still intact or vice-versa. She also complains of sensitivity and burning in the crown in the apex area of her scalp. Upon analysis and review of her scalp with an derma scope, I have found that she is sensitive to testosterone and DHT and she is suffering from follicle swelling.We were able to help her discover her issue, whichwas not major, but major to her since her hair lacks the fullness a...

Posted on Sunday, October 26, 2014 10:50 PMA client asked me why does hair fall out during chemo-therapy? I told her and I wanted to share with you as well.Chemotherapy and hair loss- Hair loss occurs because chemotherapy targets all rapidly dividing cells—healthy cells as well as cancer cells. Hair follicles, the structures in the skin filled with tiny blood vessels that make hair, are some of the fastest-growing cells in the body. If you're not in cancer treatment, your hair follicles divide every 23 to 72 hours.But as the chemo does its work against cancer cells, it also destroys hair cells. Within a few weeks of starting chemo, you may lose some or all of your hair.If you are having chemotherapy, your hair loss may be gradual o...

If you consistently wear hair weaves and you have flaky, itchy, scaly conditions, it may be wise to discontinue the weave until the problems can be brought under control. For instance, if you suffer seborrhea and/or dermatitis, you may possibly begin to itch as soon as you have been shampooed and styled. You may have a reaction to the sebum which lays on the scalp. There are solutions to this issue. If flaking is a concern, it's wise to give the scalp a good detox, steam treatment or an exfoliant to loosen & remove them. Have a happy scalp!
