Hair loss and scalp disorders affect so many people and it is so disheartening to those experiencing it. As a holistic hair stylist, never did I imagine that my main flow of business would be guests with hair loss and scalp issues. It is rewarding and fulfilling to not only help them regain hair but also improve their lives and show them a healthier lifestyle that will support their journey to healthy hair growth and scalp.
But like any other treatment, committing to a treatment plan is essential to see actual results. And it all begins with a consultation.
The key to treating hair loss and scalp issues is to perform a thorough consultation with guests. Not only does it help determine a treatment plan, it also helps to understand the cause of the hair loss, such as medicine, lifestyle, heredity, styling habits, diet, among others.
The Oway Tricho-analyzer is the perfect tool to use during the consultation as it provides a good picture (literally) of what is going on with the scalp. It helps gauge the number of treatments necessary to help remedy whatever issue is at hand. It magnifies the scalp up to 200 times and projects a clear image that both you and your guest can see and discuss. This also allows clients to follow their progress throughout the treatment journey.
As a hair loss and scalp expert, I provide my clients personalized treatments. Each scalp condition is unique, thus treatments should be customized according to each condition. I am glad I found Oway because its complete line of Hair Loss and Scalp Treatments allows me to address various types of issues.
Once a treatment plan is in place, I determine the amount of product to be used on the location of concern. If the issue is localized in one area, treat that area and around the outside of it.
PRO TIP: Don’t waste product and time by treating a guest’s entire head when the problem area is located in one spot. It is important to make a profile for each guest to keep track of their treatments. A great way to keep you and your guests on the same page with the treatment plan is to jot down a quote of what and how many treatments you are estimating they will need, and what take home products will support their treatments.
A good idea is to write numbers on their take home product labels to show the order in which their regimen should follow, or like me, use recycled paper stickers on products to avoid confusion.
Keeping your hair loss and scalp treatment appointments in a private setting is something your guests will really appreciate. If you don’t have a closed space, invest in a dressing screen that can be pulled out for treatment appointments, and then folded and tucked away afterwards. Remember to take headshots to show the treatment progress to show future guests.
Here are 3 examples of results I have achieved with the Oway treatments on my guests:
I use Oway Rebalancing Treatment for clients with oily scalp. The botanical blend of Biodynamic Sage, Euphrasia Extract, and Bugbane Extract in Amazonian Control Clay, Pure Biodynamic Sage, and Sebum Balance Hair Bath help combat sebaceous hyperactivity, which causes yellow spots and clumps of dandruff to appear on the scalp.
Purifying Treatment for Oily Scalp + Hair Loss Treatment
Many of my clients who complain about hair loss often suffer from dry or oily dandruff as well. For this type of condition, I combine Oway’s Purifying Treatment with the Hair Loss Scalp Care Treatment.
The Purifying Treatment is highly effective in eradicating Malassezia globosa, the dandruff-causing fungus that attacks the scalp. Then we move on to the Hair Loss Treatment, which uses Denisplant, Hair Spa Complex, and Vegetable Stem Cells to revive the hair follicle cells and stimulate hair growth.
For my clients who suffer from red, sensitive scalps, I always turn to Oway’s Soothing Treatment to heal and relieve irritation. This complete treatment contains the Soothing Hair Bath, Zanthoxylum Soothing Gel, Pure Biodynamic Helichrysum, and Soothing Remedy Spot Treatment to calm and comfort sensitive skin, particularly those who suffer from eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, lesions, and abrasions.
Following an after-care program is as important as the in-salon treatments.
This allows you to effectively monitor your clients’ progress and ensure that they are not using products at home that may compromise the treatment. This includes hair care and styling product.
The Oway products I often recommend to guests with hair loss and scalp issues are:
- Moisturizing No-Rinse Conditioner – conditioner that doesn’t weigh hair down
- Phytoprotein Mist – lightweight protein spray for daily use
- Flux Potion – to give body to fine hair
- Glossy Nectar – lightweight serum to lay down baby hairs
- Volumizing Root Spray – to add height and body
- Boho Pomade – lightweight strong-hold styling wax for adding texture
