- FINE & THINNING HAIR -
We’ve been waiting for this to hit the shelves for longer than we care to admit. Cerafill is here!
What is it, though? Cerafill is a breakthrough solution for hair-thinning problems. It’s not a “volume-building” product, such as Body Full by Redken. It’s a science-based product that will feel like you’ve added 9,000 hairs after one use, and if used over time, it will actually regrow your hair. It adds not only volume, but density and more hair!
How can it cause regrowth in hair? Because of it’s primary growth ingredient Minoxidil (and yes, it’s FDA approved!) that has had rave reviews all across the country due it its ability to regrow hair.
Cerafill is offered to you in two different lines: The Defy line and the Retaliate line. The Defy line should be used by those with normal to thin hair in the early hair loss stage. The Retaliate line is specially formulated for those in the advanced stages of thinning hair, showing obvious hair loss on their scalp.
Also, be sure to note that there is a men’s formula and a women’s formula that differ in potency, so be sure to ask your stylist for the Cerafill that’s right for you!
And great news! Since Kinki Boutique is a Redken Elite Salon, we get products like this faster than all other salons using Redken. It’s already on our shelves as of today, so swing by and snag some while you can, or set up a consultation with your stylist to go over a hair-growth plan that’s best for your particular needs.
- MALE PATTERN BALDNESS -
Male pattern baldness is the most common type of hair loss in men.
Alopecia in men; Baldness - male; Hair loss in men; Androgenetic alopecia
Male pattern baldness is related to your genes and male sex hormones. It usually follows a pattern of receding hairline and hair thinning on the crown, and is caused by hormones and genetic predisposition.
Each strand of hair you have sits in a tiny hole (cavity) in the skin called a follicle. Baldness in general occurs when the hair follicle shrinks over time, resulting in shorter and finer hair. Eventually, the follicle does not grow new hair. The follicles remain alive, which suggests that it is still possible to grow new hair.
The typical pattern of male baldness begins at the hairline. The hairline gradually moves backward (recedes) and forms an "M" shape. Eventually the hair becomes finer, shorter, and thinner, and creates a U-shaped (or horseshoe) pattern of hair around the sides of the head.
Classic male pattern baldness is usually diagnosed based on the appearance and pattern of the hair loss.
Hair loss may be due to other conditions. This may be true if hair loss occurs in patches, you shed a lot of hair, your hair breaks, or you have hair loss along with redness, scaling, or pain.
A skin biopsy, blood tests, or other procedures may be needed to diagnose other disorders that cause hair loss.
Hair analysis is not accurate for diagnosing hair loss due to nutritional or similar disorders. But it may reveal substances such as arsenic or lead.
Treatment is not necessary if you are comfortable with your appearance. Hair weaving, hairpieces, or change of hairstyle may disguise the hair loss. This is usually the least expensive and safest approach for male baldness.
Medications that treat male pattern baldness include:
A solution that is applied directly to the scalp to stimulate the hair follicles. It slows hair loss for many men, and some men grow new hair. Hair loss returns when you stop using this medicine.
Finasteride (Propecia, Proscar).
A pill that interferes with the production of a highly active form of testosterone that is linked to baldness. It slows hair loss. It works slightly better than minoxidil. Hair loss returns when you stop using this medicine.
A treatment range that stops your hair from shedding by stopping the Calcium build up on your hairs follicle amongst other things, therefore making your hair look and feel thicker in time. You must continue to uses to keep the benefits.
Consists of removing tiny plugs of hair from areas where the hair is continuing to grow and placing them in areas that are balding. This can cause minor scarring and possibly, infection. The procedure usually requires multiple sessions and may be expensive.
Suturing hair pieces to the scalp is not recommended. It can result in scars, infections, and abscess of the scalp.
The use of hair implants made of artificial fibers was banned by the FDA because of the high rate of infection.
Male pattern baldness does not indicate a medical disorder, but it may affect self-esteem or cause anxiety.
This hair loss is usually permanent.
