EXT® stands for Extreme Hair Therapy, this treatment helps maintain and strengthen the hair you have preventing further thinning. I specialize in this treatment; I also teach others the knowledge on the treatments as well as the products that are used. Clients come in once a month for an enjoyable treatment and are given products every month to help them reduce hair loss! Haircuts and Color are also included. We document your progress so you can see how your hair is doing. The products consist of five items that include: cleansers, conditioners, vitamin supplements, and minoxidil. All of these products work together to rebuild, cleanse your hair, and block the formation of a chemical called dihydrotestosterone (DHT) with a natural ingredient called “Saw palmetto”.
Saw palmetto extract is an extract of the fruit of Serenoa repens. It is rich in fatty acids and phytosterols. It has been used in traditional, eclectic, and alternative medicine to treat a variety of conditions, most notably benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Review of clinical trials, including those conducted by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, found the extract to be no more effective than placebo for BPH.

Below are some questions that are often asked that I have decided to share:

QUESTION: Will these products work for me?
ANSWER: No matter what…you will see a difference in your hair. Everyone is different and results may vary for each person.
QUESTION: I lose so much hair!
ANSWER: A person loses about 50-100 strands of hair a day.
QUESTION: Does washing my hair everyday cause hair loss?
ANSWER: Absolutely not, cleansing your hair often prevents hair-loss from happening. You need to keep your scalp clean. If oil, dirt, and debris sit on the scalp for too long a period it can eventually cause cement like barrier causing your hair to not get the nutrients it needs. By cleansing it, this gives your hair what it needs to be able to grow healthy hair. If your hair and scalp is dry I suggest that you wash it every other day.
TIPS OF THE WEEK:
- Make sure to take vitamins for your hair and condition well during the summer months. If your hair is not conditioned it can cause breakage.
- Vitamins also help from the inside out making your hair look healthier.
- Get a haircut even if it’s just the ends.
- Make sure to cleanse your scalp good by scrubbing with the balls of your fingertips.
These treatments work great for Men and Women.
Have a great week everyone!
