The Top Six Reasons to Wear Human Hair Wigs

Losing hair can be psychologically devastating, as well as unsightly. Some people want a wig to look different for an occasion. Whether a person wants a new look or because they have hair loss is due to alopecia areata or cancer, looking good is a vital part of maintaining self-esteem and confidence. Here's why human hair wigs can make all the difference to hair loss and make someone feel a million dollars. They Don't Look Like a Wig Some synthetic wigs just shout "wig," as they have a firm appearance and feel like plastic. A human hair wig, on the other hand, is more natural in touch and texture. Human hair is softer and finer than a synthetic wig. The [...]

3 Reasons Why You Should Grab That Shampoo and Beware of Dirty Hair

One current "in" thing for personal beauty is not washing your hair. Dirty hair can be a mistake because your scalp health deteriorates. Your hair also can become dull and lose volume. Here are a few reasons why it’s still worth your while to grab that shampoo (and conditioner). It’s Better for Morale Guess what happens when you wait a long stretch to wash your hair? You lose more at once, and while that signals nothing abnormal, it’s bound to get you down. You try hard to take care of your hair, and here it is, falling out…and out…and out.

Why Menopause Doesn’t Have to Mean Hair Loss

By the age of 50, half of all women experience some sort of hair thinning, according to the North American Menopause Society. While hair thinning may be predetermined by genetics, there are also plenty of other causes of hair loss in a woman's 50s and 60s. To avoid significantly thinning hair, women should identify the underlying cause of their hair loss and aggressively seek treatment. With help from a doctor, a hair loss specialist and a combination of medications, topical treatments and other hair-health boosters, many menopausal women report they can stop their hair loss. How Menopause Causes Hair Loss When a woman begins menopause, her body stops producing the same levels of estrogen and progesterone. These two hormones encourage [...]

Laser Hair Therapy: The Future of Hair Restoration

Laser Hair Therapy: The Future of Hair Restoration Many people have tried to disguise hair loss with special hair styles, wigs, hats or scarves, even though these solutions really only masked the underlying problem. Eventually, men and women suffering from hair loss could turn to hair replacement surgery for a more permanent solution. Others were frightened by the thought of a surgical procedure and continued with temporary solutions. Today, there is a better, permanent, non-surgical solution to hair loss: laser hair therapy. Technology Meets Hair Loss Laser hair therapy or low-level laser therapy (LLLT) is a new, scientific and technologically savvy approach to the treatment of thinning hair and baldness, as well as other conditions of the scalp. During the [...]

John Travolta Has Great Looking Hair, So Can You

In the hit film "Grease," the tall, oily pompadour hairstyle sported by the Thunderbirds symbolized the youthful energy of America's favorite high school greaser gang. And who could have led the group better than John Travolta? Trademarked by plentiful black hair, piercing blue eyes and a devilish smile, Travolta transformed fictional characters like Vinny Barbarino, Tony Manero and urban cowboy Bud Davis into enduring pop-culture icons. But, as we know, thick hair doesn't always stick around (no matter how much grease it gets). Like millions of men, John Travolta eventually discovered he had male pattern baldness. But instead of giving in, the actor reworked his look in a variety of ways, using hair-replacement technology and thickening artistry to recover the [...]

Raise Your Self-Esteem And Be Your Best You in 2017

Unfortunately, hair loss is something that many women face during their lifetime. In fact, female pattern hair loss affects almost 40 percent of American women. This can lead to loss of self-esteem and confidence, an unfortunate side effect of the condition. However, hair loss doesn’t mean you should also lose your self-esteem. This New Year could be your best one yet! My Story of Hair Loss For me, hair loss was a result of stress. A move, a break up and family issues were causing me to lose sleep and, even worse, my hair. I noticed it in the shower at first. The average woman can lose between 50 to 100 hairs per day, but it was clear my problem [...]

Are the Holidays Dulling Your Hair?

During the holidays, everyone wants his or her hair to be on point. Hair stylists are likely to see an uptick in last-minute appointments as people prepare for holiday parties and galas. However, the holidays also bring many surprise stress triggers, some of which can affect the luster of your hair. Let's explore the science behind dull hair during the holidays and how you can keep your lock healthy and strong all season long. How Does Stress Dull Hair?
