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.


If you feel like you notice more shedding in the Autumn months you are not imagining it. Seasonal hair loss is a common thing. To understand this phenomenon, you must first understand that hair growth happens in cycles.


Trichodynia or burning scalp syndrome is a condition that puzzles the medical community and can be quite frustrating for those experiencing this uncomfortable situation. The feeling of burning or itching of the scalp can occur on its own or in connection to major hair shedding. This too is not well understood as researchers are unsure if the condition causes hair loss or the hair loss causes the condition.


On August 3, 2016, Images International hosted the first annual Metro Detroit Women's Hair Loss Seminar. The seminar was intended to educate women on the causes of hair loss and the solutions that are available to women experiencing all stages of thinning hair or hair loss.


With hair loss being such a prevalent issue for men and women all over the world it is something scientists have studied and tried to crack for many years. Recently, two studies have linked hair loss to mutations in our stem cells as a cause for thinning hair.


Images International is offering a new product line to our collection of safe, gentle hair shampoos, conditioners and styling agents.

Vegan and vegetarian diets can be extremely healthy. Getting your calories from nutrient dense sources like fruits, vegetables and grains set your body up to feel healthy and full of energy. However, as with any restrictive diet, there are chances of deficiencies if you are omitting certain foods.


As our valued clients know, Images International moved into a new salon in the Fall of 2015. We have invested in our new location, invested in training for our stylists and we have brought in high quality products for our guests. Because of these exciting advancements we had a professional photographer visit our salon to capture some of our work, our new digs and our wonderful clients experiencing our process.
