FAQ'S ABOUT HAIR LOSS LASER PROGRAMS
Who is a good candidate for the program?
This hair loss program is for all men and women who want to improve weak thinning hair. It is however important to note, with any therapy early intervention is very important.
What should I expect?
Hair re-growth generally can be expected to begin somewhere between the 4th and 6th month. Many may experience thicker and healthier hair as first signs of improvement.
Is it safe?
This is one of the first questions many people have. The answer is absolutely. Laser therapy has been used successfully for more than 30 years to treat a broad spectrum of medical conditions. This therapy has no side effects and is both painless and non-toxic. The type of laser light used in low level laser therapy (LLLT) meets all international safety standards and legislative specifications of a “non-significant risk” product, and is classified as a Class IIIA cosmetic laser.
Are there any side effects?
Laser therapy does not cut, burn, or harm the skin in any way. Unlike pharmaceutical preparations, laser therapy has no known side effects. Photo-medicine or laser therapy provides proper therapeutic treatment without unwanted and dangerous side effects.
Is the treatment painful?
There is absolutely no pain.
Why should I begin now?
Medical professionals agree that it is beneficial to begin a hair treatment program as soon as you notice hair loss. The sooner you start your treatments the sooner you will stop hair loss. If the hair follicles die there is nothing that can bring them back. The earlier you start, the better your results.

Breakage, Thinning Hair and Hair Loss
Its official, no one likes spilt ends, and the heartbreaking effects of thinning hair. Unfortunately it is a very common problem. Many of you may have heard the old wives tale that cutting your hair more frequently will aid in its ability to grow faster. Here is where the myth can be separated from reality. The two most common results of unhealthy thinning hair are breakage and split ends. Fortunately there are ways to avoid damage to the hair cuticle, and prevention for further hair woes.
The sun is essential for everyday life, but it can also cause severe damage to hair. The ultra-violet rays in sunlight break down the keratin protein in the hair. This can affect the cuticle in the same way a hair lightening service does. It is important to consider that previously colored hair is especially sensitive to the sun’s rays. Streaks and dryness are typically a result.
Understanding that not all hair is the same, gaining knowledge of your hair and the products needed are essential to the health of the hair. Conditioning improves the cuticle and the moisture content of damaged, thinning hair. It is important to talk to a hair professional about what products they recommend that you use, and need to discontinue using.
If you are experiencing thinning hair, excessive breakage and splitting, call Munashe for a consultation analysis. Not only do we carry products that will improve the condition of your hair, we offer many holistic solutions for good healthy hair.
Almost all foods that we eat are either acidic or an alkaline in the blood once they are digested and metabolized. Since our blood is normally slightly alkaline, with a pH level of between 7.35 and 7.45, many nutritionists and health practitioners advocate eating a diet as close to the body’s ph level for optimum health. A diet too high in acid may deplete the body of alkaline minerals such as potassium, magnesium, and calcium. This imbalance is thought to make people prone to illness.
Meat, poultry, fish, grains, dairy, and salt are acid producing when digested, while most fruits and vegetables, sea vegetables, and green tea are alkalizing. The typical Western diet has become dramatically acidic as our culture has moved from eating a diet high in fresh fruits and vegetables to a diet high in meat, dairy, grains, salt and sugar.
A good balance is to eat 75-80% alkaline foods like most vegetables, fruits, sea vegetables, and green tea, and keep the acidic group of foods like meat, dairy, fish, oils, grains, and nuts to 20-25% of your diet. Here’s a helpful breakdown of where various foods stand on the acid/alkaline scale.
