The Importance of Image and the Role Your Hair Plays

Image is the first thing we see in other people.  How tall they are. How they dress. We check if they are wearing too much make-up. We notice if they are overweight. We look at their stance, how they walk, their speech patterns, if they have a tick or even if they what their tattoos depict. The same thing goes for your hair.

Hair

We are judgmental people. One of the first things we notice is their hair. Is it blonde? Is it well groomed? Are they bald? How bald? It is a primary way we describe someone to other people.  Hair is obvious. It is a key characteristic in describing someone. Studies have shown (in the past) that men with hair are viewed sexier than men without. That doesn’t mean that bald men aren’t sexy. But if you ask any bald man if he would like to have his hair back, at no charge, chances are good he will say yes.

Women love their hairstyle and colors. They color it to cover the grey. They put extensions in it so it looks loner and thicker. They may get perms, relaxers or highlights just to change the physical appearance of it. They grow it long, cut it short, or may make a change because they just feel like it.  Hair is often (not always) one of a woman’s key identifying elements.

We often choose our mate by physical attraction. We are all attracted to someone who is well dressed, nice features, smells good, nice physique, or some other physical asset. This is before they even speak!  But the hair is, simply put, the icing on the cake.

If you don’t like your hairstyle, do something about it.  How we see ourselves is often a reflection of our self-confidence and a projection of how we feel inside. So in an image conscious society, think about all the physical details that define you.  Are your shoes shined?  Are your teeth white?  Do you wear clean clothes?  Does your outfit clash?  As your mother used to say, “Is your hair combed?”  Image matters!

Laser for Hair Stimulation

What does laser hair stimulation do? It is non-diffused light that penetrates the scalp about 4 millimeters. This increases blood and oxygen flow to the hair bulb. The idea is to deliver nutrients in the blood stream faster to the hair follicle so that it becomes a fatter, mature hair more quickly. This form of bio stimulation helps increase cell growth and has been used to help heal skin disorders as well.

As cells absorb light, a steady regimen of this should increase hair density by over thirty percent over a nine to twelve month period. We have seen these results in our studio. The downside, however, is if the individual does not use laser on the necessary recommended basis the results will not be as visually apparent. This does work in the majority of cases!

Laser Hair Stimulation

Other benefits include:

  • Will stop DHT hair shedding
  • Pigment reinstatement
  • Better curl retention
  • No heat
  • Repairs and improves hair shaft quality
  • Pain free
  • Stimulates hair follicle and regrowth
  • No side effects

This is a non-invasive therapy that is a type of homeopathy like acupuncture or chiropractic.

Laser has been used for men and women with hereditary hair loss, prescription/medical induced hair thinning, surgical hair restoration healing, and women with post-partum hair loss. We also recommend a topical lotion and an herbal supplement so that with a “three prong” approach, you are affecting your hair systemically (through your bloodstream) with the herb, topically with the lotion and sub-epidermisly with the laser.

Hair Systems Design Evolution

Why have wigs, hair systems, and hair pieces changed in design? The answer is evolution. What does that mean? Hair additions (wigs, hair systems, hairpieces and hair extensions) have evolved in how the hair is processed as well as how natural the hair addition is perceived.

Hair processing has changed in the last 40 years. Different hair types are available. Indian, Indonesian, Burmese, European, Chinese, Korean, Russian, and Remy are all descriptions of hair type and processing.  Remy simply refers to leaving cuticle on the hair so it is more natural and less processed. The other names or “places” are where the hair originated from. We did not have several choices of where the hair originated and the factory did not disclose this information. Hair was simply hair.

Most hair was original sewn into weft, a line of hair commonly used in less expensive wigs or extensions. Now hair is hand sewn into net, silk, urethane, or another type of base material so it looks more natural and is more versatile in application. Hair systems, hair pieces, mono top wigs and handmade wigs use a more natural base material so the appearance of the hair “addition” looks more realistic.

Lace fronts, skin units and other types of handmade materials were not readily available years ago so the systems were heavy and thick in appearance and not as natural looking. In the 1980s the hair market actually had a shortage of human hair, thus giving rise to mass production of synthetic fiber for use in hand made hair goods.

Synthetic fiber was a suitable replacement for human hair until……..clients realized it could not tolerate heat, friction and could not be colored.  Furthermore long synthetic fiber when worn over clothing will get frizzy over time. So we went back to human hair and found alternate sources of supply.

Today human hair is still used extensively BUT many wigs and hair systems are so lightweight and realistic looking that their life span has become reduced, thus giving the birth to program hair or disposable hair. That is topic for another time!
