Is Roots for You?

While men are typically associated with hair thinning, in the salon 85% of the people experiencing hair loss issues are women. Damage from hair extensions can lead to traction alopecia. Stress can also lead to hair loss. Roots Professional products are designed considering every demographic. If you are concerned about hair loss, Roots has a solution for you. Roots has determined that rather than simply being reactive to hair loss, they want to educate their clients being proactive. Rather than wait until hair loss and damage occurs, you can now prevent it from happening in the first place.

Being Proactive About Hair Loss

The new and improved approach taken by roots takes advantage of the fact that healthy hair responds faster to stimulating treatments than those already suffering hair loss issues. Technology that was once only for those with thinning hair can now be used to increase length, create body, and improve overall hair health for all hair types and all ages. By incorporating at least one or two Roots product into your hair regimen today, you can avoid hair problems in the future.

Hair Loss Myths:


Women Do Not Encounter Hair Loss

While "male pattern baldness" may be the type of hair loss we think of most often, women suffer from hair loss also. Some women even have a type of "male pattern baldness", as they age. For most people, the number of hair on your hair, hair elasticity, and hair thickness will all decrease with age. For women, we encourage early treatment and long term supplementation to prevent issues. As sensitive as men can be to hair loss, hair loss for women can be more traumatic.

Starting Hair Loss Treatment Too Early Makes Your Hair "Addicted" and Leads to Faster Hair Loss

This is, in fact, the opposite of the truth. The earlier hair loss treatment is started, the more effective it can be. This myth may have roots in the fact that male pattern baldness tends to start out in certain areas and then spreads. If you start a hair loss treatment and stop it, the hair returns to the way it would have been without the treatment. As of now, there is no cure for certain types of hair loss. Treatment must be maintained or the hair returns to the cycles it would have had left untreated.

Hair Loss Is Caused by "Clogged Pores"

The hair follicle is located deep in the dermis (skin) of the scalp. It does not become clogged and no product that "cleans it out" will imprve hair growth. Likewise, a "dirty scalp" does not slow hair growth. People are shampooing more often today than they did historically and hair loss rates remain the same. Having a healthy scalp is beneficial. But, scrubbing the scalp willl not stimulate hair growth.

Wearing Hats Causes Hair Loss

This myth probably has roots in the fact that men wearing baseball caps started to show hair loss. The fact is they would have had the hair loss anyway. Traction alopecia, hair loss caused by repeated pulling of the hair is real. But, wearing hats does not cause damage to the follicle leading to hair loss.

Poor Blood Flow Is the Primary Cause of Hair Loss

If this were the case, we would see spotty hair loss in most people, not the very symmetrical patterns we tend to see. Howeever, improving healthy blood flow to areas where the hair has atrophied is beneficial to the supplemental ingredients being sent there by treatment.
