1. What Does Female Hair Loss Look Like?

    If we were to poll 10 random people and ask them what male hair loss looks like, they would probably all give similar answers about starting as receding in temples, with thinning in the crown, and eventually balding on top with a ring of hair around the head.  If we then asked those same 10 people what female hair loss looks like, I am pretty confident we would get 10 different answers.  This is…Read More

  2. Gender Inequalities in the Treatment of Hair Loss

    Before Women’s History Month comes to a close, I wanted to touch on a subject that hits really close to home, both professionally and personally; the gender inequalities in healthcare and how these have impacted the treatment of hair loss in women.  As a primary care physician for thirty years, I saw firsthand how these inequalities impacted my patients, especially as women are more likely to f…Read More

  3. Our Diets and Our Hair

    If you attended our webinar last week, “How Our Nutrition Impacts Our Hair”, you know how strongly I believe that a healthy diet can play an important role in the health of our hair.  In this blog, I want to look at not just the vitamins and nutrients needed for healthy hair, but the overall types of diets. The hair follicle is an extremely complex structure and made up of some of the most me…Read More

  4. How Blood Tests Can Play a Role in Diagnosing the Cause of Your Hair Loss

    The ultimate goal of our medical consultation is to determine the cause of your hair loss.  Starting treatment without knowing the cause is really not helpful, and often is costly both in time and money. There are many types of hair loss that women can experience, and each of these types can have several different causes.  During the physical exam of your scalp and hair, we will closely examine …Read More

  5. Ingredient Highlight – Ashwagandha Root

    If you watched our webinar “What is the Right Supplement for Me?” on January 27th, it can be found on our website here for those who missed it, you would have heard us talk about a number of important ingredients that you should look for in a hair loss supplement.  One ingredient that we discussed that many patients may not be as familiar with is Ashwagandha Root.  When thinking of important…Read More

  6. Overcoming Our Own Perceptions of Female Hair Loss

    When Medi Tresse opened 2015, our mission was two-fold.  First, we wanted to help all women experiencing hair loss feel empowered by their options and reclaim their confidence. Secondly, as the leading medical professionals in our industry, we wanted to normalize women's hair loss through education while creating a caring and supportive community for women.  That second part is the hardest, but …Read More

  7. Argan Oil for Hair Health

    Unfortunately, many of the popular hair styling techniques are actually detrimental to our hair.  The problem is that many people want something they don’t have and utilize styling techniques that damage the hair.  Over styling, and especially techniques that use excessive heat, can actually dry out and damage the outer hair cuticle, so it is important to add that moisture back.  Leave in con…Read More

  8. 2021 Webinar Series Kick Off

    After the positive feedback we received in 2020, we are excited to announce the return of our webinar series, with the first webinar of 2021 being hosted on Wednesday January 20th at 12:30PM.  We found that webinars not only provided a great way to deliver information to our patients and perspective patients, but with the Q&A portion, they are quite interactive.  Each webinar will cover a di…Read More

  9. Hair Rejuvenation New Year’s Resolutions For 2021

    Happy New Year’s and on to 2021! With the challenges that were presented to us this past year, I think we all get a pass for not keeping our 2020 New Year’s resolutions.  While the difficulties of this pandemic are not over, as the calendar flips to 2021, it does so with a great sense of hope for all of us.  With that, we wanted to offer everyone, regardless of where you are on your hair rej…Read More

  10. The Importance of A Virtual Consultation

    We have heard from some patients about whether doing a virtual telehealth consultation is worth doing.  While our offices’ safety protocols meet, and in many instances exceed, all local and federal safety regulations, we understand that everyone’s comfort level is a little different at this point in time.  We also know that due to travel restrictions in different states, coming into the offi…Read More
