We’re Not Afraid To Go There With Your Hair

Our main focus at Fusion Salon is to give our clients a great experience; not
  just by transforming their hair into works of art, but also by prioritizing
 the health of their hair. In our recent staff meeting we discussed an
important, but sensitive topic: thinning hair. It’s something we have seen
with our clients, and we hope by sharing what we know, we can help
shed the stigma surrounding hair loss and turn something taboo
into something talked about.

The most common types of hair loss are typically temporary
and there are several factors for thinning hair: vitamin deficiency,
high levels of DHT in both men and women (a hormone linked to
hair loss caused by an increase in testosterone), sensitivity
to hair products, and the most frequent and often overlooked
contributor: stress. One of the most common forms of
temporary hair loss is Telogen Effluvium (TE), which occurs when
there has been a shock to the system (e.g., illness, surgery,
childbirth) triggering the hair to go into a resting phase, followed
by excessive shedding. During TE new hair continues to grow
and it usually resolves on its own over several months. 

The good news is that there are a few things you can do to
treat TE. The first is to examine your diet for deficiencies
in essential vitamins and nutrients vital to hair health, and
then change what you eat or add supplements to help.
The next is to be gentle with your hair and go easy on the
styling. Also, avoid hair products with sulfates or parabens
as they can cause skin irritations, which can contribute to
hair loss. Invest in a shampoo, conditioner, or follicle
stimulator to increase the flow of blood to your follicles.
Finally, and most importantly, get back to the basics:
drink more water, eat right, exercise, and take time to relax.

Six months ago (without any foresight that thinning hair
would become an issue for our clients) I brought in a new
product line, Ethica, because I personally wanted my hair
to grow faster and thicker. I chose Ethica because it works
by reducing inflammation, decreasing DHT, and has a
combination of amino acids to stimulate growth. This line
has proven itself to me, and our clients have had more
success than any previous brand we’ve carried. I recommend
my clients to use Ethica for six months to see maximum benefits.

We know it’s a delicate matter for most, but we hope
our clients feel comfortable to ask us questions
and talk to us about thinning hair. The staff at
Fusion Salon is here to make your hair beautiful
and healthy from root to tip.
