Please share to MHP Community

What if You Discover a Growth on a Client’s Head?

It can be very alarming to discover a growth on a client’s scalp as you work, especially if you are familiar with the client and know it is new.  Most bumps and lumps on the scalp are not that serious.  Indeed, it might simply be a benign mole or cyst.  Other possible causes range from hereditary lesions to cancer.

If you notice a lump or bump on a client’s scalp it is always worth mentioning.  The client may be aware of it, or you might be the first to discover it. Continue reading “Tumors and Growths that Occur on the Scalp” »

Helping Clients Decipher an Embarrassing Problem

The stereotypical image is of clients chatting with their hairstylist and revealing details of their personal life, sharing private problems.  But the truth is that sometimes, simply seeing their hair and scalp from your vantage point reveals embarrassing and even painful problems clients are reluctant to mention.

Hair that looks fine from the front when clients glance in the mirror can look very, very different when viewed from above and behind.  And hair stylists see a lot of itchy, flaky scalps.  It is rarely a serious health threat, but it can be seriously embarrassing and bothersome for your client.  But what causes it?

Doctors often lament the fact that patients who are experiencing hair loss come to them when it is too late to prevent permanent baldness. With his new book ‘Dr. Weaver’s Black Hair Loss Guide”, Seymour Weaver III, MD bridges the gap between doctors and the first person to notice hair loss: hair stylists.

Many medical professionals wish that there were a way to spark a conversation with the hair styling community. Hair stylists see clients more regularly than their doctor sees them, meaning that they are the first line of defense when it comes to spotting thinning hair before it is too late. By the time that women decide to go to the doctor, it is often too late. In his new book, Dr. Weaver’s Black Hair Loss Guide: How to Stop Thinning Hair and Avoid Permanent Baldness, Dr. Seymour Weaver bridges the gap, empowering hair stylists to be better advisers to their clients.

Eating Tips to Prevent Hair Loss

The fact that nutrition has a role to play with hair loss is something that you are well aware of, but it sometimes gets overlooked.  The composition of amino acids and B-vitamins results in the keratin protein structure of hair. When a person does not get enough or does not get the right source of these ingredients hair will tend to not grow as well. Many individuals go through a variety of life experiences that can cause their nutritional needs to increase with or without their awareness.  Let’s look at some of the ways that this can happen.
