Top Hair Loss Questions

“Does excessive shedding mean I have hair loss?”

“Is my diet is causing hair loss, is what I’m eating causing my thin hair?”

“I looked on the internet and found OTC products guaranteed to stop hair loss, will they work?”

“I went through chemotherapy and my hair isn’t the same, why did this happen?”


Am I shedding more than normal?


Shedding is one of our frequented asked hair loss questions. Shedding is a normal part in the growth cycle and is never permanent. The average person can shed anywhere between 50-100 hairs per day. The anagen phase, often referred to as the growth cycle, will begin to grow back in three to four months. This phase will last for 2-7 years. Hair loss and shedding are not the same and should not create anxiety as it is a normal function.

*If you are shedding more than 150 hairs a day or experiencing excessive shedding schedule a no-cost consultation.

Proven to be effective without any known side effects, laser therapy stimulates blood flow using red light therapy. Hair growth is increased using cellular energy.

I lost my hair during chemo – What changes can occur?


Chemo Curls, Slow Growth & Scalp Visibility in Crown – A newly diagnosis can be overwhelming, and unfortunately with most chemo treatments hair loss is a common side effect. However with the advancements in this day there are many options to help accelerate growth and stimulate follicles. One reason why many cancer patients experience slow and sparse regrowth is a lack of blood flow to the follicles. This typically is a result of a predestined genetic hair loss. Chemo can accelerate into early stages of Androgenetic Alopecia (AGA). There are many options to accelerate and recover healthy hair following cancer treatment.
