Healthy hair starts with a healthy scalp. Bad scalp conditions may be obvious, such as dandruff, oily hair, unwanted odors, redness, itching, hair thinning and hair loss. However, some serious conditions may exist yet not be so obvious.

Head First Can Treat Conditions That Negatively Affect Your Hair Growth
Oily Hair and Scalp
Sebaceous glands release sebum, an oily substance that moisturizes hair and keeps it from becoming brittle and dry. Sebum maintains the ph balance of skin. When too much sebum is released, it can cause build up which harms the development of hair strands and clogs the hair shaft, eventually causing hair loss.
Some forms of parasites or yeast-like fungus can interfere with the normal scalp cellular renewal, causing a dry scalp and dry dandruff to form, flaking off onto hair and clothes. The release of more sebum causes layers of sticky and yellow scales, creating oily dandruff and itchiness. For treatment, it is important to determine between dry or oily dandruff.
Dry Hair and Scalp
Lack of hydration, aggressive beauty treatments and environmental conditions may cause dry hair and scalp. Hair coloring, straightening, perms, blow-drying can damage your hair over time, as can chlorine, salt water and pollution. When the sebaceous glands can no longer adequately lubricate the hair, you start to lose the natural softness and bounce. Not all conditions require the same care.
Itching and Skin Inflammation
Washing your hair too often or too seldom, using harsh chemicals or wrong combination of hair products, poor diet, dehydration, excess sebum . . .all contribute to conditions that cause dry, oily, or sensitive scalps, resulting in itching and/or burning sensation. There is no one cause of itchiness or skin inflammation . . .but there is one solution. . . .Head First.
Pregnancy and Hormonal Changes
For pregnant women, hair often tends to be thicker and less oily. However, three to six months after giving birth, due to hormonal changes, a new mother may experience considerable hair loss. Aging women also experience thinning or hair loss as a result of hormonal changes. Head First can provide nutrients to the hair follicles to stimulate blood flow and trigger hair regrowth.
With psoriasis, the normal cellular scalp renewal process is 10 times faster causing thick accumulation of white and dry scales. This becomes thick around existing hair, causing itching and red patches. While there is no cure for psoriasis, Head First products can provide significant relief.
Ever notice that not only hair gets thinner as one ages, but also the hair gets duller and lacks luster. Hormonal changes and slow down of blood flow and nutrients to the hair follicles is the culprit. Head First products, along with laser hair therapy, can provide the nutrients and stimulate the blood flow to gain younger looking hair!
Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy
Chemotherapy and cranial radiotherapy affect the sebaceous glands and follicular cellular activity causing hair to fall out within days of treatment. The scalp becomes sensitive, dry and irritated. The amount of hair loss and rate of regrowth depends on the various treatments and is different for each person. Head First has a special product line called Térapo Médik™ Scalp Care and made of 100% natural ingredients. Calendula oil, hydrolyzed cornstarch and an amino acid complex create a soothing treatment that regulates the hair growth cycle and stimulates regrowth.
How to Get Started with Head First
The first step is to make an appointment with Images of Princeton's Head First certified hair renewal specialist for a free microscopic hair and scalp analysis. You will be able to see magnified pictures of your scalp and hair follicles.
Next, your Head First specialist will prescribe a treatment plan consisting of products and timeline. Some services will be provided at Images of Princeton's studio along with a home care schedule. Laser therapy is also recommended to help stimulate blood flow and nutrients to the hair follicles.
And, most importantly, you are never alone. Your Head First specialist will monitor your progress, adjust treatment as needed, and always be available to address questions or concerns.
When it comes to hair loss, as long as the hair follicle is alive, new growth is possible. If the hair follicle dies, no regrowth can be triggered. So, time is important. The earlier you seek treatment, the better the results! Set up your Head First hair and scalp analysis today!
