Is Summer-Swimming Hurting your Hair?

Quite possibly.

Salt water in the ocean, as well as chlorine in pool water, can both easily damage our hair. Especially considering that blazing hot sun and high heat and humidity are often problems too. If you’re enjoying time outdoors hiking or golfing or puttering around in your garden, try to cover your hair and scalp with a loose scarf or wrap, or a big loose beach hat as often as you can.

After spending time swimming under the sun, taking a shower as soon as possible is almost a necessity to get rid of any damaging salt or chlorine residue. New England Associates® has a special shampoo called “Phase 4” which has been specifically formulated to remove mineral and chemical deposits caused by pools and ocean water (and even chemical processing such as perms or dyes).

NEA Phase 4 is available as a single item and it is also part of the “Swimmers & Mineral-Busting Bundle” which includes NEA Replenish Deep Conditioning Treatment and NEA Protein Treatment Formula which are both excellent for damaged hair. There is also a version of the “Swimmers & Mineral-Busting Bundle” that adds NEA Conditioning Mist which helps with detangling and protection from heat, among other things.

 

Speaking of detangling your hair, whether after swimming or after the shower or after riding on a boat or in your car with the windows open and top down, you should never be harsh while trying to get the knots out. Here is what you can do about it: http://newenglandassociates.com/wordpress/untangling-longthin-hair/

The professionals at New England Associates® will check out your hair and scalp under a very powerful microscope and point out to you anything that may not look quite right. Then if needed, we will help you review all of the options and solutions and possibilities that would be best-suited for you.

People can be Picky about Their Hair

This is a conversation that can happen between any two people at any salon. Even between two big actors in New York City:

If you are as particular about your hair as they are about theirs, but perhaps you’re not quite satisfied with the way your stylist covers any thinning areas you may have, visit a New England Associates® location and see a professional who can help with ways to make your hair look and feel thicker and fuller and fluffier and bouncier. If the method you choose includes visits with one of our stylists, she or he will be sure that your hair looks the way you want every time you visit with us. We think the guys in the video would be pleased with the results.

What Happens if you Stop Washing Your Hair?

An article came out last week on USA Today’s website exploring that question (https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation-now/2017/05/20/what-happens-if-you-stop-washing-your-hair/100120826/). One New York City dermatologist concludes that it may not be a bad thing for some people to wash their hair much less often than others, while other people may need to do it a little more often.

We have also been touching upon this topic off and on for several years here in this blog. No matter what, we recommend always using top-quality products and avoiding heavy scrubbing when you do wash your hair so you won’t strip away any essential elements or cause any damage to your hair or scalp. You can read more of our suggestions at http://newenglandassociates.com/blog/take-care-of-your-hair/.

If you are noticing any shedding or thinning of your hair, or feel that your scalp may be too oily or flaky and wonder about possible damage to your hair, it is best to see a professional right away before anything gets worse. At New England Associates® we can show you what everything looks like under a powerful microscope and help you with suggestions about what to do to solve potential problems. This free and easy evaluation and consultation is available in-person at our locations, but if you cannot get to us, you can contact us to find out which of our HairStart® products online may be good for you to order by mail and try at home.

Hair Cloning

A news article came out last week about advances in hair cloning and a company in England that is hoping to start doing it later this year: http://www.wearegreenbay.com/health-watch/healthwatch-hair-cloning-is-happening/692166868

As the article states, 85% of American men will have hair loss by the time they’re 50 years old. Even though there are plans for clinical trials of this cloning procedure in the U.S. in the future, the FDA must take a necessary amount of time to approve the process for safety and effectiveness, and that will likely take years before it possibly gets approved here.

While this is amazing news in the advancements of surgical hair restoration, if you are seeing signs of thinning hair and balding, you should not wait that long to do something about it. There are many options already available to help you stop further hair loss and get hair back. New England Associates® has been offering all of the proven methods for decades and will continue to be on the cutting-edge of all new possible solutions. Find out about everything that can be done now and what can be the best for you and your lifestyle by starting with a free and easy consultation and microscopic evaluation at one of our locations.

A woman was at her hairdresser’s getting her hair styled for a trip to Rome…

A woman was at her hairdresser’s getting her hair styled for a trip to Rome with her husband.  She mentioned the trip to the hairdresser, who  responded: “Rome? Why would anyone want to go there? It’s crowded and dirty.  You’re crazy to go to Rome.  So, how are you getting there?”

“We’re taking Continental,” was the reply. “We got a great rate!”

“Continental?” exclaimed the hairdresser. “That’s a terrible airline. Their planes are old, their flight attendants are ugly, and they’re always late. So, where are you staying in Rome?”

“We’ll be at this exclusive little place over on Rome’s Tiber River called Teste.”

“Don’t go any further. I know that place. Everybody thinks it’s going to be something special and exclusive, but it’s really a dump.”

“We’re going to go to see the Vatican and maybe get to see the Pope.”

“That’s rich,” laughed the hairdresser. “You and a million other people trying to see him.  He’ll look the size of an ant. Boy, good luck on this lousy trip of yours. You’re going to need it.”

A month later, the woman again came in for a hairdo. The hairdresser asked her about her trip to Rome.

“It was wonderful,” explained the woman, “not only were we on time in one of Continental’s brand new planes, but it was overbooked, and they bumped us up to first class. The food and wine were wonderful, and I had a handsome 28-year-old steward who waited on me hand and foot. And the hotel was great! They’d just finished a $5 million remodeling job, and now it’s a jewel, the finest hotel in the city.  They, too, were overbooked, so they apologized and gave us their owner’s suite at no extra charge!”

“Well,” muttered the hairdresser, “that’s all well and good, but I know you didn’t get to see the Pope.”

“Actually, we were quite lucky, because as we toured the Vatican, a Swiss Guard tapped me on the shoulder, and explained that the Pope likes to meet some of the visitors, and if I’d be so kind as to step into his private room and wait, the Pope would personally greet me. Sure enough, five minutes later, the Pope walked through the door and shook my hand! I knelt down and he spoke a few words to me.”

“Oh, really! What’d he say?”

He said: “Who messed up your hair?”


If you have a big trip (or any other big event) coming up in your future and you want your hair to look its best, the hair replacement procedures at New England Associates® can help you get fuller, thicker-looking hair.

Is President Trump Taking Medication to Grow Hair?

According to a recent report on CNN, President Trump is taking the medication Propecia (finasteride), which started as a prostate drug under a different name and dosage, but was discovered to regrow hair in many men.

This goes against an article published last year on the website gawker.com which said that Mr. Trump has an expensive weave.

Either of these approaches can indeed result in fuller and thicker-looking hair for many people. The hair-loss experts at New England Associates® can help you with similar medical and non-medical options, as well as surgical procedures, if you are suffering from hair loss and/or thinning hair.

Why Millennials seem to be Experiencing More Hair Loss

An ABC television affiliate recently aired a news report about Millennials and hair loss. Among the reasons cited for their hair loss is a lack of animal protein in some Millennials’ diets, anxiety and depression, and popular styling practices such as tight braids which damage hair:

The report says that treatments range from supplements to surgery. Such treatments are exactly what you will find at New England Associates®. Among other things, New England Associates® has a patented supplement called HairStart® Essentials™ which provides all of the essential vitamins and minerals for healthy hair, including those that are often overlooked in today’s diets and lifestyles, and Essentials™ inhibits DHT from attacking hair and causing hair loss.

When it comes to surgery, today’s hair transplantation techniques make it as painless as possible and extremely unlikely for anyone to know when someone has had it done because each graft of hair is individually placed, resulting in a natural-looking hairline. The transplanted hair grows as normal and can later be cut and styled in any way desired. Laser Hair Therapy may be added to help speed the overall healing and growth process.

HairStart® Laser Hair Therapy is also available as a standalone option. It is a safe, non-surgical, scientific approach that has been used around the world for over 30 years and can work on people of almost all ages – even Millenials such as this one:
