What does laser hair therapy do?

  • Arrests the progression of hair loss – stops the situation from getting worse.
  • Thickens and plumps each individual strand of hair by 35% – creating coverage to thinning, balding or receding areas.
  • Stimulates the follicle to promote re-growth to the areas that have lost hair.
  • Treats damaged hair – restores the original health and luster that strands had prior to any damage.
  • Promotes healthier hair in general and prevents future damage –  treatments create shine, more style manageability and even helps retain color longer





The key to laser therapy is to begin treatment as soon as possible.  If you are male or female and beginning to notice thinning, receding and bald patches, don’t waste any more time.  Begin laser treatment as soon as possible.  Besides the iGrow – there are several options for this very effective therapy option.  Here are a few links for more information or to take the next step:

Optimal Hair Care

Most of us wish “bad hair days” didn’t exist. Having a full head of healthy hair is often associated with beauty and youth – who doesn’t want that? Maybe you aren’t dealing with a specific kind of hair loss, but you want thicker, shinier hair with more luster and life. Or perhaps you are dealing with thinning or brittle hair that’s been damaged from years of chemical treatments and heat styling. Or maybe, you feel your hair is changing or not as healthy as it once was and you want to do something about it. Here are some tips that will help.

Use the Right Products
: Most shampoos contain sulfate (sodium lauryl sulfate) for the primary purpose of creating suds, which creates a false sense of cleaner hair. That’s actually not the case; sulfate denaturizes the natural proteins and oils in your scalp and hair, thus stripping any natural oil that may be found. This is why products containing sulfate are so drying. They strip your hair and skin of natural and essential oils. Sulfate-free products are especially beneficial for people who have a dry scalp or dry hair as well as for people who color their hair. Other ingredients like paraben and alcohol should also be avoided when choosing the right hair products for you.

I endorse and recommend the Welker Rephreshed line of hair care products.  All of their products are sulfate free sodium chloride free and act as a moisturizer, aid in repair, as well as conditions and adds volume with a weightless thickening agent.
