If You Have Hair Loss Due to a Thyroid Disorder, You are Not Alone!
She got more than her hair back…she got her life back as well.
After being diagnosed with Grave’s Disease and suffering the side effects of this thyroid disorder and the medications associated with it, Linsey decided to seek help for her thinning hair. Too much of her life had been spent hiding and covering up, and she was ready to live her life again. After spending time with Hair & Scalp Specialists, a plan was put into place to help repair her beauty – both on the inside and out.
From the Consultation to determine the best solution for Linsey to the Design & Mold session, a personal blueprint was created specifically to meet her needs. To determine the best custom design solution, we had to consider her lifestyle, coverage needs, and maintenance requirements. These necessary conversations helped determine the best attachment method for Linsey, allowing her hair system to allow her to live her life without compromise! Watch Linsey’s story…

Ever wonder what those little icons on your shampoo, skin care or makeup bottles mean? If you’ve never taken the time to understand the common beauty product label, you may just be surprised at what’s hiding inside.
While today’s shoppers are smarter and better informed about food packaging labels, many are still unaware of some of the basic symbols used in labeling cosmetics and beauty products. Knowing what these symbols mean is just as important for consumers as understanding similar packaging information on food in the grocery aisle.
All cosmetics and personal care products sold in the United States are required by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to be labeled with ingredients, including botanicals and chemicals used in manufacturing. There are also universally recognizable symbols used for package labeling that provide more specific product contents and safety information. Symbols indicating a product’s expiration date, organic makeup or even whether a company adheres to strict animal cruelty-free standards appear on every health and beauty product you use.
Making sure you know what’s inside of the product you’re considering, as well as having a basic understanding of label symbols and their meanings will help you make a more informed purchase. Here’s a short list of a few of the most common symbols on the market today; recognize any?
To many, the term “hair loss solution” conjures up images of painful hair restoration techniques or the unnatural looking, one-size-fits-all wigs many of our grandmothers wore back in the day. You know the kind of wig we are talking about here, the kind made primarily of low-grade synthetic materials, that unless you weren’t paying any attention at all, you could tell when a lady was wearing one.
Today’s Hair Solutions
There are many advantages to our hair solutions today, including a more natural look in terms of texture, shine and movement, color dimension, and authentic look and feel. Wigs of your Grandma’s days were often hot, itchy and generally uncomfortable. Today’s hair solutions, on the other hand, lack any of those discomforts. Human hair solutions also offer many more styling options. In contrast to synthetics, human hair solutions are heat resistant, so they won’t melt or curl when applying heat.
As we mentioned in our February newsletter, we’re celebrating the pregnancy of one of our stylists, Clair. She and her fiancé are expecting a baby boy in the coming months. This got us talking about pregnancy and its effects on hair and the scalp.
Many women look forward to the “glow” of pregnancy. During this exciting time, higher levels of hormones can cause many physiological changes – bright, shiny skin and fast growing, fuller hair. Increased estrogen in the body extends the growth phase of hair, resulting in reduced shedding and changes in texture which can make for seemingly fuller locks.
Thinning tresses and hair loss can be difficult for men and women of any age. Hair loss can be caused by a variety of factors, including stress, hereditary, the result of illness or disease, or a side effect of medical treatments such as chemotherapy. Any hair loss can be traumatic and impart serious damage to one’s self-esteem.
We’ve heard it from many of our guests – their stress levels may have initially caused their hair loss, which resulted in additional strain. It’s a vicious cycle that’s extremely difficult to break. In dealing with all this added pressure, people turn to different coping mechanisms, such as overeating, staying within the confines of their home or overspending. These methods bring about their own problems and can result in even more concern for the person and their loved ones.
We all have a favorite shampoo. You know, the one that makes your hair smell like vanilla and promises shinier, thicker and healthier tresses. Maybe you chose that shampoo based on the recommendation of a hairstylist. Or, maybe you began using it because your best friend swears by it or you read that it’s your favorite celebrity’s secret to her gorgeous locks. But have you ever really read the ingredients of your shampoo and considered how they interact with your hair and your scalp?
The recent buzz around claims that certain conditioning cleansers and dry shampoos cause hair loss has many wondering if their favorite shampoo could be causing damage that can lead to hair loss, too. While those products may not be causing direct hair loss, the wrong product on the wrong hair type can certainly cause hair and scalp issues, including dreaded hair loss.
Whether you’re looking for a special holiday gift for someone special or just looking to pamper yourself with a present, we have some ideas to make that holiday search a little easier.
Below are five suggestions that our team has compiled to help you look better, style easier or add health to your scalp and hair.
GHD Styler Flat Iron – If you have been using the same flat iron for longer than three years, it may be time get a new one. Over time the temperature control can go bad and create “hot spots,” which can damage your hair. The GHD Styler has a one-of-a-kind thermostat inside constantly keeps the gold plates at the proper temperature to allow straightening on all hair types and lengths. The best part is you can use it to style your hair in a flat sleek look or with the perfect curl. We love that in just 20 seconds the iron is at full heat and ready for styling. A protective plate guard allows you to pack up after use. The GHD Styler also comes with a two-year warranty.
“I am grateful for what I am and have. My thanksgiving is perpetual.” –Henry David Thoreau
Many around the Thanksgiving table will barely take the time to enjoy the traditions of the holiday before rushing out to score the best shopping deals. Recently, we even came across a website that defines Thanksgiving as “a holiday on the fourth Thursday of November that precedes Black Friday.” Thanksgiving is about so much more than turkey and sales. It’s about thankfulness and the recognition that we are all blessed with positive things that come our way in life.
Every Thanksgiving as our family gathers to eat more than any human should in one day, we always take the time to reflect on the past year and say thanks for all the blessings in our lives. With that in mind, we give you the five things we’re most grateful for this Thanksgiving.
At Jeffrey Paul Hair Restoration Center, we know it’s been an incredibly stressful time. The time leading up to the election, and the event itself, has left a lot of people distressed and uncertain. Couple those feelings with the hustle and bustle that arrives during the upcoming holidays, and you have the potential for a lot of stressed out Americans. How is all this stress affecting your hair, and are there things that can be done to prevent hair loss?
Stress, anxiety and depression are never good for your body especially when combined with the medications that can be associated with them. When dealing with factors that contribute to hair loss, one of the biggest internal components is the medications used to treat those conditions. Drugs dealing with high blood pressure, cholesterol, mood enhancing (anti-depressants) and hormones (hormone enhancement, menopause, birth control and testosterone) can all lead or contribute to hair thinning problems.
