Healthy Hair Growth

I sit at the edge of my bathtub and wait patiently for the water to rise to a suitable height. The bubbles collide into each other, combusting and releasing the scent of rosemary into the air.

Pampering your scalp is one of the best things you can do for your hair, specifically in regards to hair growth. The best thing you can do to encourage hair growth is to give your scalp a healthy growing environment. To achieve this, I recommend investing in a hair growth system, and I say system with intention because these products really do work best together. Most systems consist of shampoo, conditioner, and scalp treatment and can be purchased through your salon or professional hair care retailer. These items can also be purchased at York Street Spa!

Shampoos for thinning hair exfoliate the scalp. The corresponding conditioners are thickening, which means they expand your hair cuticles for a more “plush” look. The scalp treatments stimulate the scalp and prevent the follicles from getting clogged again. Scalp treatments are applied after you get out of the shower and are not rinsed out after application.

The number one question I get is: DO THEY REALLY WORK? My answer is YES! But we need to be realistic. A hair growth system is going to give you the healthiest growing environment, does that mean all of you hair is going to grow back the way it looked 20 years ago? No. Results normally take about 4 weeks to take effect with best results after 12 weeks. You need to be patient.

Here is what you need to know:

Often clients will tell me “oh that’s too much work for me”, it’s time to get realistic! It’s only one additional step and if you want to see results you need to make the sacrifice. Massage the scalp treatment into the scalp when you apply is to stimulate circulation.

Many clients with fine hair are reluctant to use a conditioner because they fear it will make their hair oily or weigh it down. Hair growth conditioners are formulated to avoid these issues. Hair growth shampoos can be drying for the hair due to the clarifying ingredients so be sure you condition each time you cleanse.

You may see more hair fall the first few times you wash with a hair growth system, that’s normal. The excess hair that falls is the hair that was stuck in what was clogging you follicles being cleansed away. It’s a good thing. You may also experience a bit of redness around the scalp after use. This is rare but harmless. It is blood rushing the surface from the stimulation of the products; also a good thing.

So which hair growth system do I recommend? I like the Invati by Aveda. Invati can reduce hair loss by 33% and uses 97% natural ingredients. I enjoy the natural smell and I find the texture very lightweight. I have been using hair growth systems for many years now and Invati is by far my favorite. Try styling with the Aveda Thickening Tonic to add a fuller look.
