Frequently Asked Questions



Why Am I Losing My Hair?

This is probably the most often asked question we receive. The answer varies depending on factors such as genetics, medications, hormones and environmental factors.

Hair Loss in Men and Women are different in their appearance but some of the contributing factors may be the same.

Men typically will lose their hair progressively. Women's hair loss will generally be diffused on the top of the head. Both men and women can suffer from hair loss due to Alopecia Areata, Chemotherapy, or other conditions that result in total hair loss or hair falling out in "clumps".

The "root cause" of hair loss in most men and women is dihydrotestosterone, also known as DHT. As DHT levels rise, this can cause more of a problem and affecting the hair follicle. DHT can shrink the actual follicle making it almost impossible for any healthy hair to survive.

My mother has always had thinning hair.
My father was bald at the age of 45.
Does that mean it will happen to me?

Genetics plays a key role in thinning hair and hair loss in both men and women. The degree of hair loss and the progression over time may or may not be similar to someone in your family history. A consultation will allow us to determine the overall health of your hair and the best means for keeping your hair healthy and restoring the hair you’ve lost.

Stress and Diet are a factor in thinning hair and hair loss that many people may underestimate. Your hair requires certain nutrients and vitamins for healthy hair growth.

Women who experience a change in hormonal balances, either from pregnancy, child birth, birth control or menopause may experience temporary or progressive thinning or hair loss.

Is it true that hair loss can cause depression?

Several authors and researchers have reported an association between hair loss and psychological problems including low self-esteem and clinical depression. Premature hair loss has also been shown to have a major impact on close relationships, social life, self-confidence, and self-perceptions of attractiveness and career.

Even though these same individuals would never think twice about seeking help for pain suffered from a bad back or illness, getting the same responsive treatment for hair loss is for some a low priority. Treating hair loss can improve the quality of your life as it provides symptomatic relief for what is bothering you... your hair loss.

Why do I need to come in for a consultation? Can’t I just talk to someone to get prices and look at some information?

The only way we can tell you what you need and what it will cost is to see you in person. You may not actually need a hair system. Our hair care products may help you. We don’t know. And we won’t know what you need until we can see you in person and know exactly what the cause of your hair loss is and what the best possible solution is for you.
