A testimonial from one of our loyal clientele:
“In November 2005 I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. In order to help survive breast cancer you are required to undertake extensive chemotherapy which unfortunately meant losing my hair. Chemotherapy damaged a lot of my hair follicles, thus I knew that I would never be able to grow my hair to the length and thickness which I desired. The only answer was going to be hair extensions. I did a lot of research on hair extensions on International and Australian Web pages. I read numerous articles on the length my hair needed to be. I looked at photos of before and after photos of women with very short hair going to luscious long hair. Thus when my hair was around 4cm long I went and saw a number of places in Melbourne to discuss hair extensions. Some places advised me that they could perform the extensions immediately. Then I came to Salon Shique.
They advised me that it was not just the length but the condition of my hair. I was advised of the products to use, how to look after my hair, and how to get it in the best condition for the preparation of the hair extensions. I was so grateful that they didn’t look at me as just a customer giving money; I was viewed as a person with a dream. I wouldn’t be given extensions until my hair was ready to take them, and that it would defeat the purpose in getting hair extensions when we are not getting the best outcome. (Or even worse my hair to fall out with the stress of the extensions.)
They ensured that my new hair, (which came back like baby fine hair), was in the best condition that it could be, before they would consider putting the hair extensions in. They also managed the growth and condition of my hair.
Three weeks later I have the hair that I have always dreamed about. Thank you Salon Shique for your patience and understanding. I now look in the mirror and say WOW!!” Karen
A healthy lifestyle leads to healthy hair. Eating a balanced, nutritional diet is vital.
Include in your diet for assisting in reducing hair loss and improving hair gain:
- To keep your hair well hydrated, drink six to eight glasses of water ever day!
- Protein (meats, eggs, cheese, seeds and nuts) will give the shaft of your hair more strength, and will reduce the probability of damage.
- A lack of Vitamin B (green vegetables, beans, sunflower seeds, nuts and peas) can lead to oily hair conditions.
- A lack of Vitamin C (oranges, lemons, limes, melons, berries, red peppers, kale, cauliflower, tomatoes and cucumbers) can cause dry hair.
- Vitamin A (carrots, sweet potatoes, squash, broccoli, cantaloupe or apricot) is important for the health of your scalp. A lack of it can lead to dry hair.
- Vitamin E (avocado, rice bran, nuts, dark green vegetables, legume and whole grains) provides lots of benefits for growing vibrant hair.
- Vitamin K (seafood, dairy food, fig, brewer yeast, asparagus, broccoli, lettuce, cabbage, dark green leafy vegetables, egg yolk, oatmeal, rye, soybean, liver, wheat and yogurt) helps to maintain healthy hair
- Healthy hair needs iron (eggs, fish, liver, oysters, meat, poultry, whole grains and green leafy vegetables).in the body. Iron is needed to help carry oxygen to the hair. Without enough iron, hair gets starved for oxygen.
- Magnesium (meat, fish, fruit, nuts, brewer’s yeast, whole grains and green-leafy vegetables) deficiencies lead to hair problems.
- Copper (milk, bread and green vegetables) is needed for hair structure and is involved in the pigmentation of hair.
- A lack of Zinc (oysters, peas, pulses, haricot beans, butter and kidney) can lead to hair loss. Zinc is necessary for building hair protein.
- Healthy hair also needs two essential fatty acids, omega-3 (Salmon, flax oil, algae, cold-water fish, dark-green vegetables, hemp oil and pumpkin seed oil) and omega-6 (borage, evening primrose oil, safflower oil, sunflower seeds, hemp seeds, corn and pumpkin seeds) that are not produced naturally by the human body.
- Sugars, chocolate, cakes, cookies, starches, soft drinks, and snacks. (yes we know how hard it is to avoid these)
- Caffeine, alcohol, nicotine and recreational drugs destroy important hair growing nutrients.
The most widely believed and accepted herb that greatly enhances the blood circulation to head and skin is ginkgo biloba. Increased blood circulation is helpful in aiding the best hair loss treatment, as there will be an increased nutrient supply to the hair follicles and prevent hair loss.
A 2005 study conducted by the Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science, Los Angeles used rats as models.
60 female rats experiencing the rat equivalent of baldness were divided into 2 groups. One group was given pure water to drink. The other group was given drinking water that contained a polyphenol extract derived from green tea.
33% of the mice who drank the polyphenol-laced water experienced some hair regrowth. Out of the mice assigned to drink water only, none experienced any hair regrowth.
Increase blood circulation to your scalp by massaging it for 15 minutes a day. Begin at the temples and press firmly with your fingers. Move your fingers in a circular manner and work your way to the back of your scalp. Apply a massage oil such as coconut oil, to maximize results and give nutrition to your scalp.
