Did you know that not all hair is equal? As professionals, it is our job to educate you on what options are available for the best fit for you and your lifestyle. Today I want to discuss the three different types of hair my Team uses: Premium vs. Premium Plus vs. Virgin.
Our goal is to help our Guests have healthy, beautiful hair once again. But as you read above, not all hair is equal. Education is key to the success and longevity of any hair system! Having an understanding of the types of hair can help you when discussing your options with your hair professional.
Isaac Bracha, owner and president of the Hair and Compounds in Los Angeles, California, and a featured hair broker and expert in my book operates a research and development laboratory for replacement hair. He states, “…Replacement hair will best mimic its wearer’s hair if it is extremely close in diameter. Diameter affects the weight of the hair, the way it falls, and other important factors that will become obvious if there is a large discrepancy.” A hair restoration specialist can help determine the best solution for you.
Ah, menopause! That natural biological process and inevitable rite of passage that all women experience at some point in their lives. And while every woman’s menopause experience is different, there are some common menopausal symptoms that cause the greatest disruption to everyday life. While hot flashes, mood swings and weight gain are expected during “the change,” many women are unaware and unprepared for the hair thinning and hair loss that can take place during this time. In fact, nearly 40 percent of women experience hair thinning during and after menopause.
For women going through menopause, the cause of hair loss is almost always related to hormonal changes. The body produces less of the female hormones estrogen and progesterone, which are the main triggers for hair growth. When the levels of progesterone and estrogen drop, hair growth slows and hair tends to become thinner. Lifestyle changes, including diet and sleeping habits, can also take a toll. For women experiencing menopause, the added anxiety of hair loss can have devastating effects on one’s self-confidence and daily outlook.

“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.
We are very excited to introduce Aquage Volumizing Mist. This versatile styling spray can weightlessly create smooth waves and curls, random texture and strand definition. Unlike other styling sprays, Volumizing Mist always leaves hair feeling soft and pliable never sticky or stiff. It contains sea botanicals that nourishes your hair and results in prolonged color vibrancy and brilliant shine
This product features Thermal-V Technology, which means it is designed to withstand the heat of a blow dryer. Styling products that do not contain this technology will still act as a light barrier to heat but cannot fully protect your hair against harmful heat rays.
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.
