Hair loss is often rooted in a medical issue—specifically, an issue with the scalp. Think about it this way: Your hair needs a safe, healthy environment in which to grow; if your scalp is in any way compromised, it only makes sense that your hair growth may also be compromised. Our stylists at Advanced Hair Solutions are formally trained and certified experts of trichology, the branch of dermatology that pertains to the scalp and the follicles. We are pleased to offer our expertise in trichology and scalp treatments to clients throughout the Metro Detroit Area.
During your initial visit to our salon, with your approval, we can perform a quick trichological examination. This is a simple, fast, non-invasive procedure in which we use a microscopic camera to evaluate your scalp and hair follicles. Often, this procedure may reveal what is causing your hair to thin—and from there, we will recommend scalp care treatments that are tailored to your specific needs.
Some of the issues Trichology addresses are:
- Dry scalp, dandruff and dull hair
- Oily hair and scalp
- Excessive hair loss, thinning hair or balding areas
- Eczema, psoriasis and itching
- Hair breakage or failure to grow length
- Over-processing from perms, hair straighteners, hair coloring, etc.
- Loss of hair from tension caused by braiding, ponytails, hair twirling or pulling
- Hair loss after pregnancy
- Hair loss during and after menopause
- Cranial radiation therapy or chemotherapy
- Hair loss after severe weight loss
In terms of trichology treatment, we are proud boosters of the Head First line, from Capilia. This is an assortment of clinically-formulated trichology solutions that include shampoos, lotions, conditioners, and more. Made with natural ingredients, these products are proven safe and effective in treating scalp issues and encouraging healthy new hair growth.
Our stylists will be able to recommend a specific line of Head First products to help restore your scalp to full health. We may also recommend that you use these trichology products in conjunction with laser hair therapy—a good way to give your follicles the TLC they need in order to produce new hair growth.
Trichology doesn’t offer overnight results, but it does allow for a clinical remedy to an unhealthy scalp—and potentially a way to regain a full and healthy head of hair!
