Hair Loss? We get it and we've got you!
As people get older, their hair often starts losing volume and thickness. However, hair loss can also result from health conditions, nutrient deficiencies, stress, and other environmental factors.
In my 30+ years of experience as a stylists I have seen more hair loss than ever in the last two years. I personally believe the stress of the pandemic has been the main culprit. COVID hair loss IS real! Many people don't realize there are many options that really work to manage hair loss immediately and prevent it in the future.
In addition to professional hair products, adding calcium to your diet is huge! Also, brushing your scalp nightly to increase blood flow & using proper products to keep your scalp clean. Treatments can often help manage hair loss that occurs with aging by boosting hair health, thickness, and strength. Hair that falls out due to a health condition often regrows in time. In this article, we look at why hair thins, what we can do about it and how we can integrate home remedies to amplify your results.

Want to get started at home?
There are some vital home remedies and practices you should implement everyday to promote hair growth and overall hair health. Here are a few of our favorites:
- Massaging your scalp at least once day. This gets your blood flowing which is the essence of hair growth. You can do this with your favorite hair growth essential oils like Thyme and blending it with other plant oils like castor oil.
- Eating Healthy! It is said protein and iron are both essential to hair growth. An easy way to do this is by adding a yummy salmon filet or tofu to a spinach salad- Mayne get a few nuts and seeds in there too for an added boost!
- Create your own Hair Mask. This one can also be a lot of fun. There are so many good ideas out there but this recipe is our fave.
Mask Recipe: Mix together 1tsp of Organic Coconut Oil, 1tsp of Organic Local Honey and 1tbsp of Organic Avocado oil until well combined. Use your finger tips to apply, first my massaging into the scalp and working it through your ends. Let sit for 10 minutes and rinse well. Follow by washing with your professional hair treatment. You can do this once or twice a month.
