“For women with cancer or alopecia, you’ll want to offer or suggest full cranial hairpieces that allow them to look like themselves and live their lives until their own hair returns.
“There is also a range of supplements available that can help strengthen the hair through nutrition. Two I recommend to all of my clients are Phytologie Phytophanere for hair and nails and Hair Support by International Hairgoods.
“New on the scene for all clients is laser light therapy that has been FDA approved. This includes a hooded appliance for in-salon treatments and a and-held brush that can be used at home. These have been used in Europe for years, not only for treating hair loss but for maximizing the hair’s condition and color, as well.
“Hair loss is like just like aging—you can either take steps to minimize its impact or let it run its course. When you show your clients that you’re a specialist in this area, they’ll be loyal to you for life.”
Paul also presents his solutions to hair loss to the dermatology interns at the Cleveland Clinic on a yearly basis to help them understand the options and the impact of hair loss on women.
