Hair loss is far more common than many men and women would like to admit. While some medical hair loss treatments can help, there is no magical cure for hair loss. The one thing you can do is take care of your hair and doing so naturally is a good idea to improve your hair’s appearance.

Taking a natural approach

For many people, taking a natural approach to hair health as well as overall health just seems like a good idea. A balanced diet and regular exercise can help you to feel and look good. We all know that when it comes to food, eating fresh is much better for you than processed foods. A healthy diet that is rich in nutrients and vitamins and drinking plenty of water all can have a positive benefit for your skin and hair.

It has been noted by the US Office on Women’s Health that the best way to keep your hair in tip-top shape involves a healthy lifestyle and good hair care. It’s a good idea to wash your hair regularly but that doesn’t mean every day. Hair can get too dry and that will lead to breakage of the hair strands. Also, when you wash your hair, make sure the water is not to hot as that can work against your hair and can dry out your locks. Just like you would ingest chemicals, it is best to minimize the amount of chemicals you put on your scalp. Always look at the labels for hair dyes, shampoos, and other hair care products so you know what contents they have in them. Opt for natural, and high-quality products like those used by many professionals.

Lifestyle factors to consider

There are a number of factors that can contribute to hair loss and one of the most common is genetics. There are medical conditions that can play a part in someone developing thinning hair or baldness as well. According to the Mayo Clinic, chronic stress is a contributor to hair loss. Depending on how severe the stress in your life is, you might want to consider making changes in your lifestyle where possible in order to help minimize the stress levels you’re facing. This could involve talking to family and friends, a medical professional, getting regular exercise and other activities like yoga, acupuncture, and medication.

Other options

Making healthy choices from the foods we eat to the products you use on our hair and scalp can improve the appearance of your hair and keep it in healthy condition. If you have hair loss you should talk to your doctor or a hair loss specialist. There are a number of different treatments that over the years has advanced dramatically. There are men’s hair replacements and human hair extensions that can hide your hair loss and ensure your hair looks healthy and full.

With the explosion of hair extensions in popular culture, these hair add-ons have become commonplace for not only celebrities but also regular folks. And while extensions are an amazing way to lengthen and thicken your hair, they carry risks as well.

Why Choose Professional Hair Extensions?

Remember the old adage:  You get what you pay for? That’s completely true of hair extension. Many salons now offer cut-rate extension performed by a hairdresser with little experience applying them properly. Many hairdressers don’t go through thorough and proper training, least of all to make sure they’re not damaging already thinning hair.

Professional hair extensions, such as those from Van Scoy Hair Clinic, are applied by trained professionals who understand how extensions should be added to fine, thinning hair. Many of our clients have found that extensions allow them to add fullness to their thinning hair.

Can Extensions Really Damage Your Hair?

Yes! Extension can really damage your hair. Just ask some of our celebrity friends, such as Jennifer Aniston, Naomi Campbell, Britney Spears, and Kim Kardashian. The damage they suffer from hair extensions is often very public and very obvious.

Extensions can be applied in two ways: they are either glues or weaved onto your natural hair at your scalp. If they are applied and maintained properly, extensions are a safe and effective way to lengthen your hair. If they’re applied incorrectly, they can pull at your hair, causing permanent damage to hair follicles. Over time, extension damage can cause permanent hair loss.

Choosing a professional to apply extensions is essential, because not only will they apply extensions correctly, but they will also ensure proper maintenance. This means regular maintenance is required to keep extensions healthy, but pros can make sure extensions are not pulling at your hair and can rotate how extensions are attached to ensure their safety of your hair.

The takeaway on extensions is not to fear them, but simply to find trained professionals, like the staff at Van Scoy Hair Clinic, who can ensure your extension for thinning hair are applied and maintained correctly.

Braided ExtensionsWhile natural hairstyles are enjoying a comeback this spring, don’t give up on your extensions just yet. There are plenty of updos, braided looks and longer locks that might have you reaching for that extra length. This spring, be on the lookout for unique buns, interesting braided patterns, plenty of long locks and magnificent curls.



High Twisted Bun

A classic ballerina bun takes on an interesting twist with some knotting close to the scalp. If your hair isn’t long enough to fill out the entire bun, pop in a few extensions to add some length. Once you have enough hair anchored, start at the scalp, working in small, triangular sections. Break each section into two parts and tie hair into a knot close to the scalp. Work back to the place where the bun will sit. Continue all around the scalp until there are neat knots laid at regular intervals. Then use a bun filler and wrap the hair around, creating a sleek, beautiful bun on the crown of your head.

Braids Are Always In

Braided looks remain popular since they are versatile and low maintenance. Any hairstyle you can do without braids, you can do with. Plus, you can choose the length and pattern. Three-strand, five-strand and even some interesting two-strand techniques make every braided do an original.

Twisting Up the Long Locks

Locks work a lot like braids, with sleek twists tying up hair to the end. Locks can be as long as you like with added extensions, giving you a short hairstyle when you want or long, flowing locks for a night out. Like braids, locks go in fairly easily and can stay in for months, so you might get away with only one or two salon visits this summer.

Go Crazy Curly

Whether you have a natural fro to tease out for volume or soft, relaxed curls, no worries. Both can be eye-catching. With longer hair, you can usually shape up the loose curls, hit your hair with a spritz of hairspray and set with a curling iron. For shorter hair, add extensions to give you the needed inches, and you can go from a Mohawk to a wild, wavy spring look in one day.

What to Watch for With Extensions

While extensions give you unparalleled versatility and an endless number of styles to play with, keep an eye on your scalp. Over time, the adhesives and tie-in methods can damage your scalp. You might wind up with permanent parts, blinding headaches, flaking skin or even baldness as a result. Always have extensions removed regularly and give your scalp a break between inserts.

If you’re considering using hair extensions or are suffering from hair loss Van Scoy Hair Clinics offer several forms of hair replacement procedures, and we use Micro Point Accents for hair extensions.
