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. Contact us now to learn more, or to find out which of our HairStart® products online may be good for you to try if you can’t make it to 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:

Steve Left ‘Blue’s Clues’ Because He Was Going Bald

Remember Steve from the old Nickelodeon TV show “Blue’s Clues”?

Steve Burns starred on the show for five seasons and then left abruptly in 2002 without really saying why. There were many theories about what happened to him. The Internet said he died, possibly of a drug overdose or maybe a car crash.

But Steve is still alive. In a Huffington Post interview last month he said “I Googled the conditions of life, and I meet every single one of them”. He uses the Twitter handle @SteveBurnsAlive to reinforce it.

In a 10-year anniversary “Blue’s Clues” special, Steve said he didn’t want to go bald on a kids show. Then in the Huffington Post interview he confirmed that getting older and losing his hair had a lot to do with his decision.

“I left the show because it was just simply time to go. I was pretty much playing a boyish, older-brotherish kind of character on the show. I was getting older; I was losing my hair…it just felt like time. I just had a gut feeling like it was time to go,” he said.

What has Steve been up to since then? Steve says that he is bald now and 43 years old. He says “I’ve been earnestly balding, which takes up a lot more time than people think, and also I’m a voice-over guy…If you hear a guy on TV that tries to sell you insurance and sounds like the guy from ‘Blue’s Clues,’ that’s me.”

When asked if people recognize him he says “Oh, my God, no. I have to convince people. No, I look much more like Moby…than I do like Steve from ‘Blue’s Clues’”.

You can read more about Steve Burns in the Huffington Post interview if you want.

If Steve had come to New England Associates® when he first started noticing problems with his hair, the hair loss professionals at New England Associates® could have helped. At New England Associates® we have every proven method to restore lost hair, thicken thinning hair, and we have procedures that can give a fuller-looking head of hair over the next nine months.

It starts with a free and easy consultation at one of our locations (our Wakefield, MA location is brand new!). Contact us now to learn more or to find out which of our HairStart® products online may be good for you to try if you can’t make it to one of our locations.

Beehive Hairstyle Inventor Dies

Much has been made of the many celebrities who passed away in 2016, but there was one person we lost who may not have made many of the lists but was very influential: Margaret Vinci Heldt.

You may not have heard of Margaret Vinci Heldt, but her famous beehive hairstyle has been worn by stars from Audrey Hepburn to Amy Winehouse, and even on cartoon figures such as Marge Simpson.

Margaret Vinci Heldt first fashioned a cone-shaped hairstyle for a magazine cover in February, 1960. Because of its shape, it was dubbed “beehive.” The style went on to become associated with 1960s fashion and was worn by First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy and countless Hollywood stars. Heldt said her inspiration for the beehive came from a small black velvet fez hat.

Heldt passed away at the age of 98 last year.

If you have been thinking about getting a Beehive hairstyle but feel that your hair may be getting too thin for it, the hair loss professionals at New England Associates® can help. At New England Associates® we have every proven method to thicken thinning hair and we have procedures that can give you a fuller-looking head of hair over the next nine months.

It starts with a free and easy consultation at one of our locations. Our Wakefield, MA location is brand new and state-of-the-art. We’re sure you’ll like it!

Help Keep Your Hair Happy Going into the New Year

Many people go out on New Year’s Eve and enjoy some adult beverages or partake in a champagne toast at midnight. For most people, done safely and in moderation (and never driving after drinking), this should be ok. However, excessive alcohol consumption can be bad for our hair (not to mention other potential health and safety issues when judgment and common sense are compromised and potentially lead to decreased care and caution).

Alcohol is a diuretic so it causes accelerated dehydration in our bodies. A lack of body fluid causes hair to become dry. The problem with this is that dry hair is weak and brittle and more prone to split ends and other damage.

Excessive alcohol consumption can deplete levels of iron in the body which lead to hair loss. It can also trigger a zinc deficiency in the body which has also been shown to cause hair loss. Excessive consumption can also affect levels of estrogen which can result in hair loss in women. In addition, constant consumption of alcohol can also lead to lower levels of vitamins B and C as well as folic acid, which are all vital in maintaining healthy and strong hair.

Most of the time there isn’t a need to worry about long-term effects on your hair after having just a few drinks here and there. However if you are concerned that you may be drinking a little too much, you can contact your doctor to find out more about the effects of alcohol on your body and search the Internet for some of the resources available to help you cut down or stop.

Treatment of minor hair dryness after an occasional night out on the town can be as easy as cutting down on alcohol consumption or giving it up altogether. Typically it is not a lasting problem and can be helped with something like New England Associates® Moisturizing Formula Conditioner or HairStart® Vitamin Plus Conditioning Treatment. And losing small amounts of hair is quite normal. But it is possible that other factors such as aging and nutrition, along with the consumption of alcohol, can shorten the lifespan of hair and result in hair loss. The time to start worrying is when your normal pattern of hair loss changes.

If you are worried about losing too much hair or if your hair remains too dry and brittle after cutting down on alcohol, you may want to consider seeing a specialist for a hair and scalp examination. The professionals at New England Associates® will perform such an exam and identify the cause of your symptoms and help you review your options and solutions.

If you are interested in discussing more of this with an expert, contact New England Associates® today. At New England Associates®, how you feel about your hair, and making the right choice to solve potential problems, matters. We encourage you to take the time and review the possibilities and come in for a no cost, no obligation private hair loss consultation.

Winter Hats

With the first snowfalls of the season and sub-freezing temperatures in New England recently, it’s time to break out the winter hats. Keep in mind that not all hats are good for your hair’s health and appearance because hats can lead to static and squished curls among other things.

If you have curly or wavy hair, don’t wear hats that stick close to your head such as a ski hat because they will squash curls and any volume that you may have. Instead, think about using a tam, beret, fedora, trilby, or any other loosely-knit hat that doesn’t press down or cling to your head so you have enough space to maintain the shape of your hair.

Also think about the fabric of the hat. No matter what kind of hair you have, you don’t want something like wool that is rough and can snag your hair because that can lead to split ends and damage to your hair. Softer fabrics like cashmere, silk, and angora are better. If you must wear a wool hat, however, try lining the inside of the hat with a softer fabric such as silk.

If you have longer hair, you can loosely twist it into a rolled bun or tuck it up under the hat to try to limit flattening.

To reduce static, you can try using dryer sheets inside the hat or applying a styling product such as Moisturizing Formula Conditioner or  Conditioning Mist from New England Associates® along the inside of the hat and around the hat band.

If you feel that your hair is becoming excessively dry or damaged, or if your scalp becomes dry or irritated from wearing a winter hat, you should consider having your hair and scalp examined by a trained expert to see if there are any potential long-term problems to be aware of. Early diagnosis and early treatment are always a good idea, regardless of the situation.

If you are interested in a no cost, no obligation private examination, contact New England Associates® today. At New England Associates®, how you feel about your hair and making the right choice to solve any problems, matters.
