Founded in 1993, and headquartered in the Cedars Sinai Medical Office Towers in Beverly Hills, the Regenix Hair Research Clinic has treated more than 500,000 individuals with hair loss. William “Bill” Edwards is the Founder and CEO of Regenix and a renowned Scalp and Hair Care Specialist who has been treating scalp disorders since 1976.
Edward’s goal is to create a healthier environment for hair growth while preventing further hair loss by stopping the deteriorative process. Here, he debunks five myths about hair loss to help you amp up your hair-thinning and hair-loss business.
HAIR MYTH #1
I’M LOSING MY HAIR AND THERE’S NOTHING I CAN DO
Being doomed to baldness is a myth. The reasons for hair loss are varied, complex and beyond the scope of a single “miracle cure” formula. But there is a solution. Natural hair loss treatments offer analysis of the problem and steps to enhance hair, prevent further loss and help with life-long maintenance.
HAIR MYTH #2
HAIR LOSS IS A MALE PROBLEM
You know your hair was thicker last year, but you can’t convince anyone else. But this isn’t an exclusively male problem. Hair loss does affect women. As a matter of fact, over 30% of Edwards' clients are female. The reasons for hair loss in women are varied and complex.
HAIR MYTH #3
YOU’RE NOT REALLY BALD...THE HAIR IS JUST TRAPPED UNDER YOUR SCALP!
Follicle debris is only one of the varied and complex reasons for hair loss, and no amount of oil of chemical residue is going to “imprison” hair shafts below the scalp and keep them from growing. If you have already lost your hair, nothing is going to bring it back. However, if you want to keep your hair you must take care of it.
HAIR MYTH #4
BECAUSE MY FATHER LOST HIS HAIR I’M GOING TO LOSE MINE!!
Scientists understand hair and its follicle by identifying the key cells, proteins, hormones and genes that control the growth, loss and regeneration of hair. Bio-pharmaceuticals are a solution to neutralize the hereditary predisposition, before hair is lost. Prevention is now an integral part of health care and a sensible approach to hair care.
HAIR MYTH #5
FREQUENT SHAMPOOING CAUSES HAIR LOSS!
If you notice a lot of hair fall when you shampoo, it could be due to a normal shedding. However, it could also be an early warning of a problem below the scalp that only worsens when you wash your hair less often. Commercial or medicated shampoos can leave chemical residues that also contribute to the disorder. Replacement hairs grow in thinner and weaker, until eventually they do not grow back at all. The key in natural treatment is to identify whether or not the problem exists, and if it does, treat it before irreparable damage is done. Life long maintenance can then be achieved using our quality, natural hair care products as often as you wish.
