Losing some Strands

Every week I have at least one client men and women that are concern that they are losing their hair. They notice some kind of thinning or clumps of hair coming out in the shower.  Naturally, we lose about 80 to 100 hair strands per day.  Women if you don't wash and brush your hair everyday you will see more hair fall out.  It builds up until you wash.  Some reasons for hair loss:  genetic (runs in the family), pregnancy, stress, fatigue, change of eating habits, medication, any of these can contribute to hair loss.  For men, it is mostly genetic and as men age their hairline starts to recede.  Now there are some men who are lucky and will never come across this issue.

There are many options to help keep your hair.  One of the things to consider is to keep your scalp clean.  A lot of times a weak scalp will weaken the hair follicles and in turn hair becomes thin and falls out.  A product I highly recommend is Rene Furterer's Complexe 5.  Complexe 5 will stimulate, deep clean, and tone the scalp.  It's used as a part of a treatment for thinning or hair loss.  I love the essential oils in this product. 

If you find that you need a treatment you can use either:

RF-80: Intended for reactional hair loss, mainly found in women, related to stress, fatigue or postpartum.
RF 80 treats hair loss and stimulates hair regrowth.
Triphasic: Intended to treat hormonal and hereditary hair loss, mainly found in men.
Triphasic treats hair loss and stimulates hair regrowth.

Now if you are born with fine hair that's limp and doesn't carry any volume you can use:

Rene Furterer's Volumea:
Gives body and texture for fine hair, that lacks volume.
Natural Carob extract is derived from the Carob tree, native to the Mediterranean Bassin. This active ingredient adheres to the hair from roots to ends to create volume. Visibly thickened and filled out, hair reveals air-light volume.  Comes in shampoo and styling products.

There are a lot of systems out there but the reason I talking about Rene Furterer products is because they have been around for over 20 years that uses pharmaceutical plant extracts and essential oils, and because I've seen results in not only myself but my clients that use it.

Yes, I use the Triphasic treatment and have been using it for over 12 weeks now and I've notice my hair getting thicker and my scalp feeling clean.  I have a few clients that are using the treatments and they are loving their results. 

If you feel skeptical, go ahead and check out their website rene furterer or visit me (drewtylerhair) for a consultation and I'll give your first in salon treatment free.

I truly believe in this product and I know it can and is helping a lot of people with hair loss.

LA Fashion Week and Maly's

All I can say is the past week has been BUSY!  For LA Fashion week (Los Angeles Fashion Week takes place each March (for fall collections) and October (for spring collections) in locations throughout the Los Angeles Area.) , I was able to do hair for Ximena Valero.  She wanted her models to have their hair slicked back with braids on one side.  The end result is the pic on the right.  The first pic is all the hair that we braided and attached into the models existing hair.  It was pretty cool.  Then on Friday I was able to do the FBI Launchpad Fashion show which featured these designers: Scooter Girls, So-Me Designs, Alana Hale, MARISKA, and Dzhavael.  The hair for these designers were more upstyle and messy on the side.  Almost like the Eva Longoria updo bob look.  That was pretty fun!

This morning I went to the Maly's Undressed Education seminar.  This is for hairdressers to take classes from Redken, L'Oreal, Sexy Hair, Pureology, Farouk, Matrix, etc...  I was able to take the Redken class with David Stanko, he is amazing.  David has been with Redken  for over 10 years and develops their color line and is a color expert.  I learned some really cool color techniques from him. Second session was with Sexy Hair with Michael O'Roark.  He is a very humble hairdresser and had really good business ethics to share.  The Sexy hair team was very energetic and rocked with their performance on stage.  Two artist were sharing the stage giving one girl a haircut while grooving with the dance beat of the music.  It was cool.  The last class I took was the L'Oreal.  It wasn't as good as the other two shows.  It was kind of boring but I did learn a great Upstyle technique, so that was well worth it.
And that my friends was what ended my week and weekend. 
Thanks for reading!

What a day!

The wedding this morning was really neat.  It was in San Clemente right next to Nixon's old house looking over the ocean.  Then come to find out the house I was working in is where Nixon's secret service stayed.  The bride today was really occupied in organizing the rest of her day before her ceremony.  She didn't have much help from her bridal party.  It was nice to do some hair and makeup overlooking the ocean.  The bride and a couple of people ended up watching football on the 62' flatscreen in the room.  I was thinking I could get used to this.  I have so many weddings this month.  Not complaining just saying.
Oh so afterwards my car wouldn't start.  I guess the battery was going out.  Luckily, I was able to get it jumped. Went to Pep Boys and got a new battery.  Hoping it solves the problem.  We'll see tomorrow.
