Hair loss is a problem that affects both men and women of all ages. Whether you’ve found yourself suffering from hair loss at an early age, or maybe a form of treatment has caused your hair to fall out, Profiles by Kristin can help.
Profiles by Kristin is a hair replacement company located in Central New York. Their team works hard to combat hair loss of all kinds.
Nearly 80 million people in the U.S. experience some form of hair loss. Profiles by Kristin Technical Manager Nichole Capria said hair loss is directly related to the health of your scalp. “If the scalp’s not healthy the hair’s not going to be healthy,” she added. “We need to open up the pores again in order for that hair to grow.”
The scalp can retain a lot of things, like dandruff and sebum, that hinder hair health. Having an oily or dry scalp can be the root of hair loss issues as well.
Hair loss client Terri Rastellioni has suffered from hair issues since she was a little girl. But it was only after undergoing her first chemotherapy treatment that she made the call to do something about her hari. After undergoing chemotherapy, she retained about 30 percent of her hair. Rastellioni called Profiles by Kristin to help her rebuild her hair health.
“I went in, she [Nichole] fitted me with a wig and she told me about the hair support system which was monthly treatments, specific shampoos, conditioner,” she said. “I would have done anything at that point to gain my hair back faster.”
Rastellioni fully expected to be in a wig for the rest of her life. She said she was warmly welcomed by Profiles by Kristin and went on the hair support system program. Today, Rastellioni has a full head of hair.
A visit to Profiles by Kristin may include something called a Trichotest. During the test, clients will receive a scalp analysis that will test their skin health. Rastellioni said a lot of clients may come in due to visible thinning in their hair and after the consultation find it’s a problem due to abnormalities in the hair follicles at the base of the scalp.
Keeping your scalp healthy can be as easy as getting plenty of sleep at night, trying to limit the amount of stress in your life, and having a balanced, healthy diet. Capria said most people are uneducated on scalp care.
Profiles by Kristin aims to help people through education and treatment. They provide a variety of treatment options including take-home treatments and laser therapy.
