Holistic Hair Loss Solutions with Taneasha Hines
What's a Tricologist:
Trichology is a paramedical field and the scientific study of the hair, hair loss and associated scalp problems. This field is commonly referred to as the “bridge between cosmetology and dermatology.” It encompasses the study of diseases of the human hair and scalp, as well as the assessment of the cause(s) and treatment of these disorders.
Trichology Services consist of: Scalp Treatments, Scalp Analysis, damaged hair repair, hair loss analysis and Scalp Spa (cleansing). I focus on developing a highly Individualized, short/long term plans for guest of varying ages, with all hair types, including Afro- textured hair, Latin, Asian and Caucasian, with all skin types.
Laser Hair Growth Therapy
Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) is one of just three non-surgical methods clinically proven, and FDA approved to fight pattern hair loss for men and women. Taneasha Hines is an authorized physician provider of the latest Capillus Laser technology, which uses a special type of low-level laser light that operates at 650nm. At this level, the laser's energy does not damage skin cells, but the skin absorbs light without causing any pain or discomfort.
origins of laser therapy (consultation required)
In 1966, Hungarian physician Endre Mester first published an experiment in which he noticed accelerated hair growth in rats treated with laser therapy, which involves exposing cells or tissue to low levels of red and near-infrared (NIR) light. Since the 1960s, low-power lasers have been used in many medical fields for conditions like chronic ulcers, headaches, musculoskeletal, and neuropathic states of chronic pain.
Although the skin is the organ naturally exposed to light more than any other organ, it still strongly reacts to red and near-infrared wavelengths. It is referred to as "low level" therapy as well as "cold laser" therapy because the energy frequency of light used is much lower than other forms of laser therapy required to generate heat for ablation, cutting, and thermally clotting tissue. For almost forty years since the invention of lasers, low levels of visible or near-infrared (NIR) light have been used for reducing pain, inflammation, and edema, promoting healing of wounds, deeper tissues, and nerves, and preventing tissue damage.
laser therapy for hair growth
Recently, hair restoration has been a leading field in the application of LLLT technologies and has enabled physicians to improve patient outcomes. In January of 2007, the FDA granted the first clearance for a device shown for use in treating males with Androgenetic Alopecia. In 2010, the FDA expanded the category to treat females diagnosed with androgenetic alopecia or genetic hair loss.
The theory widely trusted is that LLLT, particularly at wavelengths in the red wavelength range, influences the function of stem cells that cause hair growth. Photobiomodulation (another name for light therapy using lasers or LEDs to improve tissue repair, reduce pain and inflammation wherever the beam is applied) increases energy for cell activity (ATP). In turn, this causes a reverse of hair follicles in the dormant telogen growth stage to shift into the active growth or anagen phase.
LLLT using red light lasers for hair loss has been reported to:
Increase cell metabolism and the health of blood vessels in the scalp for thicker, supple and more durable hair shafts
Stimulate the sebaceous glands for silkier-looking hair
Increase melanin production in the hair follicles, darkening gray hairs
low level laser therapy at PHD Hair Solutions
Low-Level Laser Therapy gets huge results for men with the right hair conditions. At PHD Hair Solutions Taneasha Hines uses this treatment to overcome the effects of DHT, and stimulate hair growth. When applied to follicles that are still growing laser therapy restarts the growth cycle, accelerates cell division, and increases the thickness of the hair shaft.
The key to understanding laser therapy is to take into account that you can’t naturally grow hair where there are no active follicles. Laser therapy uses the energy of diodes exposed to cellular mitochondria, stimulating the hair cellular growth and helps reverse the effects of miniaturization. It’s a 100% safe and painless treatment that extends the hair’s growth cycle, preventing follicles from going into the resting phase in which they stop growing. The cool laser light heals cell damage, resolves scalp problems, and stimulates new hair growth. By improving the size, thickness, and health of hair follicles, laser therapy enhances the quality of your growing hair. In technical terms, LLLT uses infrared light from laser diodes to stimulate wound healing, mitochondrial DNA, and cytokine secretion.
LLLT can compound the hair-growth effects of Minoxidil, or can stimulate new growth while Propecia blocks the production of DHT.
Benefits of laser therapy
Laser Hair Therapy has achieved hair growth and delayed progression of hair loss for thousands of women since its introduction and has proved to promote healing and improve scalp health. Treatment with low-level lasers works even better in conjunction with topical solutions, and it accelerates healing after surgical hair restoration. If your hair has begun to thin, laser therapy might help prevent further loss and promote new growth.
laser therapy: part of triple therapy Taneasha Hines recommends Low-Level Laser Therapy as part of “Triple Therapy.” One in three women will notice that her hair is thinning, and multiple medical therapies, which are used together, create a synergism that no one treatment can achieve. Triple Therapy uses three scientifically proven treatments simultaneously to fight female pattern hair loss. The result is a solution three times more powerful than any one treatment alone. By combining Minoxidil, Help Hair Nutrients, and Low-Level Laser treatments, Triple Therapy helps women minimize thinning and regrow their natural hair quickly and painlessly.
How to get started with Laser Therapy?

Understanding Hair Loss
Studies show that over 30 million women in the country are experiencing hair loss, with 70% of that 30 million being African American Women. You may wonder what is going on, why is this happening. This quick reference guide will give you an insight into what is really happening but to understand this epidemic you must understand the theory behind hair!
It is normal to lose between 50-100 hairs a day, this is part of the hair renewal process. However, most people suffer from excessive hair loss at one time in their life. There are many reasons for this including medication, radiation, chemotherapy, exposure to chemicals, hormonal and nutritional factors, thyroid disease, generalized or local skin disease, and stress. Many of these causes are temporary and a few are permanent. Many dermatologists are recommending that their patients take hair vitamins but not just any hair vitamin. Once DHT levels decrease and the hair growth cycle is altered, the follicles can begin to return to normal levels of hair growth again.
Let explore some of the more common reason for hair loss. Hair Loss can occur for several reasons. The most common are:
Since hormones both stimulate hair growth and cause hair loss, hormonal changes by far have the biggest impact on hair loss. These can affect both men and women in the following ways:
This is the most common cause of thinning and affects both men and women. Men generally have hair loss concentrated in a specific pattern from the front through to the crown. Women tend to have thinning throughout their head without being in any specific pattern. This type of hair loss is caused by the androgen DHT, or Dihydrotestosterone.
After pregnancy many women experience a loss of hair, this is caused many hair simultaneously entering the resting (telogen) phase. Within two to three months after giving birth, some women will notice large amounts of hair coming out in their brushes and combs. This can last one to six months, but resolves completely in most cases. This condition is caused by the hormonal changes that take place after a woman’s body recovers from her pregnancy.
*Birth control pills
Women who have a genetic predisposition to suffer from Androgenic Alopecia can have it occur at a much younger age by taking birth control pills. The hormonal changes that occur trigger the onset of the Androgenic Alopecia. If a woman has a history of female pattern loss in her family she should advise her doctor before going on the pill. After the discontinuation of the pill the woman may notice that her hair begins shedding two or three months later. This may continue for six months when it usually stops. In some cases the process cannot be reversed and the woman may not regrow some of the hair that was lost.
*Disease Or Illness
Since the follicle is a very sensitive it does respond to imbalances in the body. Most hair loss causes by disease or illness is temporary and resolves itself after the body has returned to a healthy condition.
. High fever, severe infection, severe flu
Sometimes one to three months after a high fever, severe infection or flu, a person may experience hair loss, this is usually temporary and corrects itself.
. Thyroid disease.
Both an overactive thyroid and an underactive thyroid can cause hair loss. Thyroid disease can be diagnosed by your physician with laboratory tests. Hair loss associated with thyroid disease can be reversed with proper treatment.
Some people who go on low protein diets, or have severely abnormal eating habits, may develop protein malnutrition. To help save protein the body shifts growing hair into the resting phase. If this happens massive amounts of hair shedding can occur two to three months later. A sign of this is if the hair can be pulled out by the roots fairly easily. This condition can be reversed and prevented by eating the proper amount of protein. Its very important when dieting to maintain an adequate protein intake.
Some prescription drugs may cause temporary hair shedding in a small percentage of people. Examples of such drugs include some of the medicines used for the following: gout, arthritis, depression, heart problems, high blood pressure, or blood thinner. High doses of vitamin A may also cause hair shedding.
Chemotherapy and radiation treatment will cause hair loss because it stops hair cells from dividing. Hairs become thin and break off as they exit the scalp. This occurs one to three weeks after the treatment. Patients can lose up to 90 percent of their scalp hair. The hair will regrow after treatment ends and patients may want to get wigs before treatment. There are some drugs in development to help prevent this hair loss from occurring.
* Low serum iron
Iron deficiency occasionally produces hair loss. Some people don’t have enough iron in their diets or may not fully absorb iron in their diets. Women who have heavy menstrual periods may develop iron deficiency. Low iron can be detected by aboratory tests and can be corrected by taking iron pills.
Other Factors are: Major surgery/chronic illness, Alopecia Areata Fungus Infection (Ringworm) of the scalp, Stress
Solving Hair Lossr
5 Alpha Reductase inhibitors
Drugs in this class work by inhibiting the enzyme 5 alpha reductase, which limits the conversion of testosterone to DHT (Chen et al., 1996) Finasteride (propecia) is the first drug in this class to undergo extensive clinical trials in men. Finasteride has selective activity against 5 alpha reductase. As a result, serum and follicular DHT levels are significantly reduced (Dallob et al., 1994).
*Saw Palmetto extract
Studies have shown that saw palmetto is an effective anti-androgen. It acts in a similar way that propecia does. Firstly it lowers levels of DHT in the body by blocking 5 alpa-reductase. Secondly Saw Palmetto blocks receptors sites on cell membranes required for cells to absorb DHT. Although no studies have been carried out on saw palmetto and its relation to hair growth, studies have been performed on the use of Saw Palmetto in the treatment of benign prostatic disease, which is similar to androgenetic alopecia in that it also depends on the production of dihydrotestosterone. All of the studies that have been performed to date show that Saw Palmetto is an effective anti-androgen and has shown conclusively to be effective in the treatment of benign prostatic disease.
One may assume from this that since Saw Palmetto is an effective anti-androgen and is used in the treatment of prostatic disease then it may also be effective in the treatment of androgenetic alopecia.
Normal healthy hair grows about 1/2 inch per month. It may take several months before any effects are noticed. Where the area is completely bald, hair may not grow, if the follicles are dead. It takes years for the hair to thin, so one must assume that it will take time to also reverse the process. Keeping the hair from further thinning is success in itself.
Good health and good looks often go hand in hand. Cells responsible for hair growth, tend to be very active and require a steady supply of nutrients. Many necessary nutrients cannot be delivered to the scalp externally. Follicle growth Rx works beneath your skin’s surface, at the cellular level, to help correct the effects of toxicity and stress and to promote natural beauty through radiant healthy renew scalp, thick hair, healthier hair and stronger hair. Follicle growth Rx works only on premature graying. Hair color is produced by tiny cells called melanocytes that live within the hair follicles. In the course of a lifetime,the activity of the melanocytes in each follicle begins to wane, resulting ingray hairs. Each individual’s melanocyte-clock is different; However in Caucasians this reduction of melanocyte activity usually occurs earlier than in other ethnic groups. When gray hairs appear, this is called Canities (pronounced kah-nish’-eez).
Follicle growth Rx is recommended for Men and Women, Follicle growth Rx concentrates on correcting the balance of DHT in the individuals system. Follicle growth Rx will not improve or deter hair loss if these conditions exist:
Chemotherapy/medications or use of certain hair care Products, Scalp is inflamed, infected, irritated, sunburned and or painful to the touch, application of topical products on the scalp, and usage of hair products made from chemicals.
