Images International has a new program designed to stop hair loss, nourish the scalp and help you grow thick healthy hair. The proportion of women losing their hair is increasing. This may be due to the increased stress women are experiencing whether from employment, raising a family or both. Environmental toxins are also a culprit, many of the newer chemicals we are surrounded with in our foods, businesses, houses and outside air can disrupt hormonal balance.


In the late 1990s researcher discovered a link between hormones and hair loss in men. Men’s hair loss; androgenic alopecia or male pattern baldness is caused by the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) researchers have discovered. In youth the body has a natural defense mechanism that keeps DHT in check, but as men age this defense mechanism diminishes and by the age of 50 nearly half of all males will experience signs of hair loss. The formation of the excess DHT shrinks the hair follicles and causes permanent hair loss.


Images International offers solutions for men and women who are experiencing thinning hair or hair loss. It is common for us to meet individuals who are discouraged about the look of their thin hair but they aren’t quite ready to take the leap into wearing hair. Here, our stylists offer tips and guidance on how to treat thin hair to maximize its appearance.


2016 was a great year for Images International. We welcomed back one of our long-time stylists, we hosted our first Women’s Hair Loss Seminar, we completed another hair replacement training and we expanded our treatment and laser programs. We plan on continuing our growth and excitement in the year ahead.


If you are a woman that is losing her hair you are going through an emotional time. You may not know why it's happening, you worry how far your hair loss will go. Will your scalp show? Will your part widen? Will your forehead be exposed? You notice hair in the shower drain, hair falling as you blow dry and hair filling up your brush. The diameter of your ponytail gets smaller, now you have to loop your rubber band four times rather than three.


This past weekend Images International hosted a training for our stylists to learn new cutting techniques. Our mission at Images is to allow our clients the ability to love their hair. This means giving the most natural look so they are no longer self-conscious about their appearance. When it comes to adding hair to a client’s existing hair it takes a great deal of skill and talent to accomplish a seamless hair style. Our team recognizes the importance of pushing themselves to achieve the looks that our valued clients are asking for.


On your search for an explanation behind your thinning hair and hair loss you may have visited a doctor. Having a scalp biopsy performed by a dermatologist can help diagnose conditions that can be causing your hair loss. Occasionally a dermatologist may find a reason behind your hair loss which can help you treat it.
One of the conditions dermatologists uncover after a scalp biopsy is scarring alopecia. Scarring alopecia has three different subtypes and we will discuss them here.


If you’ve ever brushed your hair and felt a snap as your hair broke off, you may need to address the strength of your hair. Generally, a strand of hair is a strong fiber capable of holding up to 100 grams. Hair is elastic and can even stretch up to thirty percent of its length before it breaks. If your hair is not in good condition, however, it will break during routine habits such as brushing or putting it in a ponytail.


Trichology falls somewhere between cosmetology and dermatology. It is the study of the hair and scalp. A trichologist is educated in scalp conditions that may lead to hair loss.


Images International works with men and women with scarring alopecia regularly. This condition affects men and women of all ages that are otherwise healthy. The condition is not contagious and it is not hereditary. Scarring alopecia is a condition that is not understood well but it is thought to be linked to the immune system like alopecia Areata. An auto-immune condition affecting the scalp can destroy hair follicles causing hair loss.
