Do You Have 5 Minutes to Treat Your Hair Loss?

 

Hair loss is one of the biggest contributors to stress in our culture, with the most common cause of hair loss being hereditary hair loss. Individuals with hereditary hair loss experience what is called miniaturization of hair. Miniaturization occurs when the hair follicle shrinks in size causing the individual hairs to become smaller and finer. Causes of miniaturization include but are not limited to

stress, DHT, and medications. If nothing is done to treat these miniaturized hairs, the follicle will go away and the hair will be lost for good.

You don’t have to stand for miniaturized hair any longer thanks to TricoGlam Home! TricoGlam Home is our revolutionary new light therapy device designed to prevent and treat hair loss at home.

5 – Things You Should Know About Your Shampoo

There are hundreds if not thousands of options of shampoos available to consumers today. The fancy packaging, crafty marketing lingo and claims may give you the feeling that what you are using is right for your hair and scalp. But is it? Do you really know if your shampoo is helping, hurting or contributing to a hair or scalp issue? Here are 5 – things you should know about your shampoo:

1. Looks can be deceiving… 

The back of the bottle is more important

The fancy packaging, crafty marketing words and claim on the front of the bottles may give you the feeling that what you are using is right for your hair and scalp. The  key to the right shampoo is not how pretty the front of the bottle, It’s what inside, the ingredients, that makes all the difference to your hair and scalp!

2. How often matters…

You Should Be Shampooing Every Day

That’s right… every day! The key is every day with the RIGHT type of shampoo which should contain a mild detergent in it designed to help keep oil and hydration of the scalp and hair in a balanced state. If you feel your shampoo would dry your hair out if you used it each day, you have the wrong shampoo.

3. It’s $3 for a reason…

There Is A Reason It Is So Cheap

Ingredients, ingredients, ingredients! Shampoos that cost $3 contain ingredients that are either a majority of water (so you have to use more to get a result) or are inexpensive and ineffective. High quality ingredients make a world of difference for your hair and scalp.

4. How much is important…

Too Much Or Too Little Can Lead To Problems

More product is not always better. The more product you use the more it takes to rinse it out, and the greater likelihood of product buildup. Similarly, using too little of the product will not achieve the desired results. Oh, and don’t forget to emulsify the product in your hand before working into your hair.

5. Shampoo is not the cure-all…

It’s Only On Your Head for About 1-Minute

Shampoo is not designed to fix the root issues of dandruff, excessive scalp itch, oily hair, or hair loss and hair thinning. It can help with symptoms, but to really help lessen or eliminate these issues you need to discover the health of your hair and scalp.

 

Now, the real question is…how healthy is your scalp?

 

 

 

Not For Your Head & Shoulders

Is your shampoo truly right for you?

You are not alone if you suffer from dandruff, excessive scalp itch, oily hair, hair loss or hair thinning. Most people experience some degree of these hair and scalp problems. If you’ve attempted to self-diagnose and treat your own hair and scalp problems with a shampoo, you may have found no improvements, a worsening problem, or sometimes an entirely new problem results.

There are hundreds if not thousands of shampoo options available to consumers today. The fancy packaging, crafty marketing lingo and claims may give you the feeling that what you are using is right for your hair and scalp. But is it? Do you really know if your shampoo is helping, hurting or contributing to a hair or scalp issue?

“Magical Shampoo” Does Not Exist
Shampoos are not designed to treat the root cause of hair and scalp issues. Their singular purpose is ultimately to cleanse your hair and scalp. Something that is too good to be true, usually is. Shampoos that promise to eliminate dandruff, decrease hair loss, or condition and cleanse can be misleading. These lofty promises can be made if the shampoo contains at least one ingredient that can somewhat help with

What About The Cleanser?
Remember the main purpose of shampoo is to cleanse the scalp. You need to have a cleanser in your shampoo otherwise your hair and scalp are not getting clean. If the cleanser is not listed as one of the first three ingredients, the shampoo is not serving its purpose and ultimately could be wasting your money—or worse, adding to a scalp problem you weren’t aware of.

The type of cleanser is also important to the health of your hair and scalp. We recommend shampooing every day, but with the right type of shampoo. That right type of shampoo has a mild cleanser designed to balance oil and hydration of the scalp, promoting a healthier environment for hair to grow in. Do you avoid shampooing every day because it makes your hair too dry? This is a sign that the shampoo you are using contains a cleanser that is too strong, creating a drying effect that can lead to other hair and scalp problems.

Know Your Scalp Before Your Shampoo
How can you find out if your shampoo and other hair care products are right for you? Don’t ignore problems like dandruff, scalp itch, oily hair, or excess shedding. Left untreated these issues can lead to hair loss and hair thinning. Stop self-diagnosing your own hair and scalp problems.

Don’t go it alone, our of trichologists can help you discover the health of your hair and scalp with their exclusive ScalpCheck. This in-depth analysis begins by looking at your current hair care and styling routine, as well as key contributing factors like diet, lifestyle, certain medications and heredity. Next, using proprietary TricoTest software, along with non-invasive, non-surgical medical appliances and three different camera magnifications, they identify the scalp’s levels of oil, hydration and pH, which all play an important role in the health of the hair and scalp. Once your ScalpCheck is complete, a customized treatment plan is created based on what’s best for your specific hair and scalp condition.

Now is a perfect time to schedule a ScalpCheck to discover the health of your hair and scalp and be sure your shampoo or scalp problem isn’t masking a bigger hair and scalp problem.

 

TricoGlam Light Therapy

TricoGlam Home is a new,  first of its kind red LED light wavelengths designed to more effectively treat hair loss and other hair and scalp problems. The TricoGlam Home is the perfect compliment to a hair and scalp treatment routine. 

Laser versus LED

Until now LLLT devices have only used laser diodes that are pinpointed to one area of the scalp and hair. Although the laser diodes are effective, the introduction of the red LED diodes allows for a more dispersed and fuller coverage of the hair and scalp without sacrificing the effectiveness of the light. Ultimately providing a better LLLT solution for your hair and scalp.

Can Holiday Stress Cause Hair Loss?

The holidays are a special time of year, but the stress they can add can lead to an increase in hair shedding. Is this normal, or a sign that points to bigger problems?

The holidays are fast approaching and along with them come the joys of the season like glad tidings, great food, and time spent with family & friends. One unforeseen effect of the holiday season is the added stress that they can cause and for some individuals this can lead to stress related hair loss.
