After seeing a story on Naomi Campbell's hair loss today, (www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article 6/29/10) I decided to start a blog to discuss hair loss and other pertinent information about hair, skin, nails, and other "industry" topics. There was a picture of Naomi's hair extensions pulled away from her face exposing her balding side areas. In the article it stated, "the hair loss was due to wearing extensions". This is true, when the commercial hair is pulling too tight onto the natural hair, (traction alopecia) or if bonded, improper removal.
In my book, I discuss "proper" application and removal techniques. Also, I discuss men hair loss and the different types of alopecia. Hair loss is very serious for those who suffer from it. It takes a VERY educated hair stylist to deal with it and offer enough solutions to their clients. As well as deal with the emotional effects of it.
Hair Loss is caused by many things such as: malnutrition, dryness, tension and tightness of braids/extensions/buns, over-processing from chemicals (color, perms, relaxers, etc.), over-conditioning, mechanical damage (flat ironing/curling too much), split ends traveling up the hair shaft-keep those ends clipped!!!!, alopeica, etc.
The solutions can vary from simply clipping the ends to as extensive as adding a customized non-surgical hair replacement system/unit.
Mark your calendars, October 10th-11th, 2010, I am hosting a Hair Loss and Business Conference for you to come and get educated on hair loss from dermatologists and get styling solutions from educated hair stylists/professionals. The price for the conference is $95.00 BEFORE September 1st, 2010.
If you are reading this, and you wear commercial hair, be sure to take care of your natural hair.
