6 Ways To Avoid Dry, Brittle Hair This Winter!

Huffington Post
Orignial Article Posted By:  The Huffington Post

12/06/2016 10:50 am ET

Winter is here! This means the holiday season, parties, and for some even outdoor snow activities. Unfortunately, the colder weather can also mean dry hair and scalps. Clients often come to me at Transitions Hair Solutions with changing hair conditions during the winter months. We always seem to remember to focus on our dry skin, but so many of us forget about our hair and scalps. Both are affected by weather changes. The cold weather can result in our hair and scalps becoming dry, brittle, and damaged due to lack of moisture in the hair and some poor hair care practices. Here are some tips to maintain the best possible hair and scalp health during this winter season:

Go Sulfate-Free: Sulfate-free moisturizing or conditioning shampoos are a good choice. While cleansing the hair they still add moisture at the same time. Sulfates in shampoo can cause excess drying, color loss, and make the hair appear dull. Follow with a good daily conditioner to maintain moisture balance in the hair. I’m currently recommending the CRLab® Daily Care Line to my clients. The CRLab Conditioning Shampoo combines mild surfactants with conditioning properties. It works to form a protective barrier around the hair follicle and at the same time restructuring the hair from deep within. For daily conditioning, I love CRLab’s Nourishing Conditioning Creme. It’s a gentle and rich cream suitable for all skin types. Cashmere proteins, strengthen, brighten, and add volume to hair, while eliminating a static hair effect. It detangles, allowing easy combing through the hair resulting in the reduction of split ends.

Conditioning Treatments: In addition to a daily conditioner, a weekly conditioning treatment or mask (done at home or in salon) can be introduced into your cold weather hair care regimen for additional moisture and hair health.

Protective Products: Choose styling products that offer restructuring, smoothing, and protective properties. Such as styling creams, serums, and even some gels.

Reduce Heat: It is always a good idea to reduce the use of heat styling tools. Overuse can result in dry and damaged hair. When heat styling, always use a heat or thermal protectant spray on the hair prior. Letting hair air dry naturally indoors is also an option too. The CRLab Hair Milk Spray is specifically designed to nourish and protect the hair from UV rays and harsh weather conditions utilizing moringa and argan oil extracts. The formula contains antioxidants and Vitamin E that revitalizes the hair and inhibits the formation of free radicals.

Trims & Cuts: Regular hair trims and cuts help to get rid of split or dead ends. They also keep the hair looking and feeling healthy. A approximate guide is about every 4 weeks for short or even damaged hair. 4-6 weeks for fine hair. 6-8 weeks to refresh long layers or if you’re growing your hair into a longer style.

Scalp Care: Our scalp is part of our skin, but is often neglected. Just as we moisturize our face and body, our scalps need it too, especially in the winter months. A PH balancing scalp treatment is a good option to maintain good moisture content and help to avoid an itchy, dry scalp.

I truly believe if you follow these six tips you can maintain healthily hair all winter long. It’s all about maintaining the right environment on your scalp for optimum hair growth. You don’t need to shed all winter and start again in the spring. You can keep your hair going strong all year long. If you’re ever in doubt, seek the advice of a trusted hair loss professional like me.

Modern Non-Surgical Hair Loss Options for Men

Huffington Post
Orignial Article Posted By:  The Huffington Post

11/16/2016 11:31 am ET

Hair loss can take its toll on both men and women. Throughout my 20-plus years working in the hair loss industry, I’ve seen it affect people’s self -esteem and change their level of social activity. In my experience, the emotional impact and lifestyle changes happen to men and women equally, despite what many may think.

I often hear people say it’s more acceptable in society for men to be bald or that a man can simply shave his head. While both of those statements can be true, it may not be the option or answer the man dealing with the hair loss wants for himself. It’s all about choice.

At my center Transitions Hair Solutions, we help a lot of men regain their self -esteem, physical activities, and social life. They want to feel like themselves again and live life without compromise. Many also don’t want to undergo hair loss surgery. 
Luckily, the hair loss industry has made some great gains.

Take 36-year-old body builder Erick Laurino for example. Erick came to me looking for options for his thinning hair. He’s someone who works out daily and is incredibly physically active. He wanted something to boost his confidence that would withstand all his tough workouts. You can watch Erick’s full story here:

 

Erick opted for the CNC hair and scalp prosthesis from Cesare Ragazzi Laboratories. It’s a custom hair and scalp prosthetic produced by utilizing 3D printing technology and scalp mapping. Precise measurements and moldings are taken of the client’s area of hair loss or thinning. The exact scalp color, hair color, and texture are matched. Hair growth pattern and hair line are also designed. All specifications are sent to Cesare Ragazzi Laboratories in Italy, where the 39 stage process begins. Only non-processed, natural human hair is hand-injected into a medical grade, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and heat-passable base. It can be worn as permanent attachment with a dermatology-tested medical adhesive. After receiving a CNC, clients visit a licensed center like mine about once a month for maintenance, just as you would for a regular haircut. The CNC allows the client to swim, shower, exercise daily, and live just as they would with their own natural hair. The CNC is great for those with varying degrees of hair loss, whether you’re thinning like Erick, or are completely bald.

The great thing about the CNC is men can still achieve a variety of great hairstyles with it. One of the key differences between addressing men’s and women’s hair loss needs is the hairline. Men tend to have very distinct hairlines. Signs of male pattern thinning or baldness are a receding hair line and thinning in the crown. Whereas, with female pattern thinning or baldness, women tend to keep the hairline outline but diffuse loss occurs throughout. The result is two very different shaped hairlines to consider when designing a CNC or any other hair replacement system for that matter.

However, men experience different stages and types of hair loss. There is not a one size fits all solution. Men who still have hair on their crown may want to consider trichological treatments. Trichology is the study of the scalp and hair. The treatments are great for someone experiencing minimal to moderate hair loss. A Tricotest is performed first by measuring hydration, oil, and PH levels in the scalp. We also use a micro camera to get an in- depth look at the scalp condition. With these results, we can recommend a treatment protocol for each client’s individual hair loss and scalp issue. The treatment will result in the best possible environment for healthy hair to grow by getting to the root of the problem.

Low level light therapy is another option to help retain the hair the client already has by thickening existing hair and expediting its growth. Treatments can be performed in a center like mine or they can also be done at home. These treatments can also be used in conjunction with the trichological treatments for optimal results.

There’s also topical Minoxidil, which is a topical drug to help slow or stop hair loss. In some cases, it could stimulate growth. It is best to begin this type of treatment in the beginning stages of hair loss or when a client first notices hair loss. It is a drug and comes in different strengths for different hair loss situations. In my opinion, it is best to speak to your doctor first before beginning this type of treatment.

Custom human hair or high heat synthetic hair replacement systems are also an option. A mold or measurements are taken of the clients thinning or bald area. Design, hair type and base materials are chosen dependent on the client’s lifestyle, attachment choice and overall hairstyle.

All and all there are lots of options, if surgery isn’t your thing. Just make sure you’re consulting a reputable hair loss professional who can find the right solution for you. There’s no reason to be embarrassed. By age 50, approximately 85% of men have significantly thinning hair according to the  American Hair Loss Association. Technology has also significantly changed the game. The days of toupees your father or grandfather may have worn are over.

Proper Nutrition Essential for Healthy Hair

Huffington Post
Orignial Article Posted By:  The Huffington Post

10/13/2016 11:08 am ET

We all know how difficult it can get to eat right as the holiday season approaches, so it’s a good time to talk about this now. Proper nutrition doesn’t just affect how you feel on the inside, it also affects how you look on the outside. And who doesn’t want to look their best at holiday functions? Well, your hair is a big part of your overall look. Many people say it’s one of the first things they notice after your eyes.

One of the best ways to maintain hair health is by eating a healthy, balanced diet. Your hair needs a well-rounded diet that provides the necessary vitamins and nutrients to be healthy, just as the rest of your body needs to remain healthy. From my 20-plus years as a hair loss professional, I’ve seen how hair loss can be a sign of nutritional insufficiency for many clients.

Heredity is the most common cause of hair loss. Other causes include: hormonal changes, cancer treatments, illnesses, diseases, medications, poor hair care, eating disorders, and yes, a poor diet.

We all know how popular crash diets and fad diets are. Americans are also obsessed with fast and processed foods. All of this can impact your hair health too, which is not something most people think about.

You need enough calories, vitamins, and nutrients in your body to support hair growth. If you’re not getting them, your body might not be able to support the hair growth you want. Hair can grow back once deficiencies are corrected, but it takes some time.

Trichological treatments can be a big help in returning the scalp and hair back to to its healthiest form after deficiencies have been corrected. They can help return the scalp to its proper PH, hydration, and sebum levels. By treating the scalp, it is getting to the root of the problem and providing the healthiest possible environment to encourage hair growth. The lengths of the hair can also be treated to infuse more moisture and protein into hair that has been left dry and lifeless from previous deficiencies.

Below is the trichology line I’m currently recommending to my clients.

Another option to help restore deficiencies is the Havogen 5 patch from the CR Lab line. It’s a transdermal patch that is worn for 12 hours a day. It has a time-released formula of active ingredients. It’s inconspicuous, so not noticeable when worn. It can be placed behind the ear, or back of your neck, close to the hairline. It’s a patented hair loss prevention patch. It fights hair loss with saw palmetto, avocado extract, B complex vitamins, and antioxidants. It nourishes and strengthens the hair as well as balances moisture in both. It also works well to control oily scalp conditions.

When it comes to taking vitamins, nutrients, and supplements for hair health, it’s important to talk to your doctor about your own personal levels and needs. Your doctor can determine if there are deficiencies and if additional vitamin supplementation is needed.

A few options you and your doctor may consider are:

Protein

The hair is composed mostly of protein(keratin). A lack of protein in a diet can slow hair growth.

Biotin

Helps to strengthen the hair shaft, increases hair elasticity, and enhances hair growth.

Omega 3 fatty acids

Provides nutrients and protein for the hair follicles, supports healthy hair growth while adding shine and luster to hair.

Iodine and Selenium

Can aid in proper functioning of hormones and healthy hair growth

Vitamin A 

Can help to produce healthy sebum, which can keep the hair from becoming dry and brittle, reducing breakage.

Vitamin E 

Boosts blood circulation in the body, especially important for the scalp. It can enable cells to get more oxygen, which produces more energy to allow improvement in hair growth.

Vitamin C

Important for the immune system, also hair and skin. Produces collagen in the skin and regenerates cells.

There are also several foods containing vitamins and nutrients that can stimulate healthy hair growth. Here are a some examples:

Fruits

This is nature’s source for vitamins A,C, and E.

Eggs

A great source of protein, iron, and selenium.

Nuts/Seeds

Several nutrients can come from nuts and seeds depending on the type. For example, Brazil nuts are a good source of selenium.

Lean meats

Red meat, chicken, and turkey are great source of protein and iron.

Beans

Contain protein and biotin. Some beans such as kidney, pinto, and garbanzo are also good sources of vitamin E.

Dark green, leafy vegetables

A great source of vitamins A and C.

Fish

Salmon, tuna, halibut, and herring are a good source of protein, Omega3 fatty acids, vitamin B and iron.

Milk/Dairy

An excellent source of vitamin D and biotin.

Olive oil

A good source of vitamin E.

It’s important to emphasize that you cannot replace a poor diet with supplements alone. Eating a healthy, well balanced diet is your best choice to encourage healthy hair growth. If you think of your health holistically, your hair will benefit too. Here’s to a happy and health upcoming holiday season! I’m sure you’ll look great!

Alopecia Awareness Month: What Is Alopecia?

Orignial Article Posted By:  The Huffington Post

Example of androgentic alopecia

September is Alopecia Awareness Month. Many people ask me what is alopecia exactly? The word alopecia itself is the medical term for hair loss. It does not refer to one specific form of hair loss. Any form of hair loss is alopecia. I’ve been helping people young and old with various types of alopecia for decades. I’ve seen it all. There are a few distinct categories of alopecia. Let me break down a few of them.

Androgenetic alopecia

This is the most common form of progressive hair loss. With this form of alopecia there is usually a gradual onset, increased shedding, and miniaturization of the hair follicle. It’s also commonly known as male or female pattern hair loss, since it’s a genetic hair loss condition. It can be passed down through genes on either the maternal or paternal side.

Alopecia areata

This is an autoimmune condition in which the body’s immune system attacks healthy hair follicles. It can result in one, multiple patches, or spots of hair loss. It usually affects the scalp, but can also occur in other areas of the body.

Alopecia totalis

This is an advanced form of alopecia areata. It’s a total loss of hair on the scalp.

Alopecia universalis

This is the most advanced form of alopecia areata. It’s a total loss of all hair on the body, including eyebrows, and eyelashes.

Cicatricial alopecia

This is known as scarring alopecia. It’s hair loss which occurs when the follicles are destroyed and replaced by scar tissue. Once the follicle has been destroyed, the hair will not grow back.

The good news is there are lots of non-surgical hair solutions for people diagnosed with each kind of alopecia.

An excellent option for all types of alopecia is a CNC hair and scalp prosthetic from Cesare Ragazzi Laboratories of Italy. It’s a custom made hair and scalp prosthetic produced by utilizing scalp mapping and 3D printing technology to duplicate an extremely natural looking hair and scalp. Many of my clients choose this option because of the flexibility it offers. It often becomes part of them, because of the ability to wear it permanently for 4 weeks, or sometimes longer. They forget it’s even there. The CNC does not limit them in any activities. No compromises.

In my opinion, those in the early stages of androgenetic alopecia can also consider trichological treatments. Trichology is the study of the hair and scalp. Trichological treatments are great for somebody who has minimal to moderate hair loss. Because trichology treatments provide the best possible environment for healthy hair growth, it will help retain existing hair and keep the scalp healthy. A lot of my clients are using a trichology system to maintain the right pH balance for their hair and scalp. It’s a good way to get to the root of the problem.

People with all forms of alopecia can also consider various wigs and hair pieces. There are a lot on the market and they come in human hair or synthetic hair. They can be pre-made or custom fit. Clients may choose this option when they are not quite ready for permanent piece or if their alopecia situation may be changing. Also, if a client needs something immediately, a pre made wig or hair piece may be an option.

Those with androgenetic alopecia and alopecia areata can look at camouflaging and cosmetic products. These are things such as hair fibers added to existing hair or alopecia masking lotions. This is a good choice for clients who have smaller areas of thinning, patches, or spots of hair loss in more inconspicuous areas. It’s also ideal for those who may not be ready to wear a prosthetic, wig, or hair piece. The colored fibers can be added to existing hair to make that area appear fuller and camouflage the scalp showing. The lotions or powders are good for coloring in bald patches or spots from alopecia areata to match the rest of the existing hair.

As you can see there are a lot of options available to people with alopecia. The best thing to do after getting a diagnosis from a medical professional is to find an expert to consult with who can help tailor a solution to you. You can find me at transitionshairsolutions.com .
