Aloe Vera and Hair: How Can it Help?

When it comes to hair growth, that’s my specialty. It sometimes takes not months, but years for your hair to get to the length you want. Who can’t wait for years? But, you don’t have to, while wearing my extensions and utilizing my hair regrowth programs, which recommends hair healing products. You can achieve hair health within a few short months to a year with customized hair restoration packages. Read on to find out how the combination of aloe vera and hair can aid in this hair growth.

Aloe vera is MY number one go-to for over the last 3 decades for myself, my consumers, clients, salon stylists, and my pets. Aloe vera is a natural plant source aiding in “Collagen Synthesis” in hair, skin, and nails. The ingredient is a vast repository of amino acids and proteolytic enzymes that help improve scalp health and boost hair growth internally and externally when used in a compounding source that’s Bio ready available from an organic protected source. 

Benefits Of Aloe Vera and Hair Combination

A lot of people ask me “is aloe vera good for your hair?” and “what does aloe vera have to do with hair extensions,” and “why is your jeep wrapped with a PLANT ?” Internally and externally I have been preaching to my choir, hence for my car wrap, logo, emblem, and products. My brand is all about an “aloe plant” and now you know why!!

Toxins and Stress: How to Eliminate Them for Hair Loss Sufferers

Toxins and Stress: How to Eliminate Them for Hair Loss Sufferers

Our bodies lose 300 billion cells every day, and it is vitally important to replenish our bodies with the proper nutrients needed to stabilize the body’s pH and lower stress and cortisol levels. Hair loss is always a symptom of something else that has gone wrong in your body.
Keep in mind that sudden and severe hair loss is usually due to acute sudden toxins or stress or poisoning to the body. Chronic hair loss is commonly due to hormonal and nutritional factors or slow chronic toxicity. Toxicity causes hair loss because the toxins interfere with the nutrients and hormonal substances that help hair growth. Some toxins interfere with the glands or organs that govern these nutrients.


Stress has been in association with hair loss for many years. During times of extreme stress, the body loses large amounts of vitamins, minerals and protein (in the form of nitrogen) in the urine. This sudden loss of nutrients can be a factor in hair loss. The stress may come from illnesses such as high fever, severe infection, major surgery or the flu.

During times of stress, cortisol levels also increase. Cortisol is a hormone produced by the adrenal glands. It has many important functions. But, in excess, it can trigger hair loss as well as bone loss.


Lead, cadmium, mercury, iron, aluminum, and copper are the most common causes of hair loss. These toxic metals are also referred to as heavy metals. They do not easily move out of the body and will accumulate in the joints, bone, liver, and other organs and glands. Their removal is possible by taking specific vitamins that drive them out. The EPA recognizes hair testing as an effective means of testing for toxic metals. Testing is the key factor in understanding how the body is being affected by toxins and stress and how to correct the problem.

Both poor hair, nail growth, and hair loss can come from toxic metals. Many hobbies and occupations involve exposure to toxic metals. Examples are painting, arts, and crafts, electrical work, soldering, jewelry repair, etc. Any activity that involves working with metal filings or dust can result in toxic metal overload.


Many people change the appearance of their hair by using chemical treatments like dyes, tints, bleaches, straighteners, and relaxers. Hair can become weak and break if any of these chemicals are repeatedly used too often. Hair can also break if the solution is on for too long, or if two procedures happen on the same day, or with the application of bleach to previously bleached hair. Some chemical relaxers do contain powerful chemicals and there have been instances of people get chemical burns from these products resulting in permanent hair loss. Only go to a qualified hairstylist that utilizes pH balanced and sulfate-free hair color and skincare lines.

Trichotillomania: What Is It?

Trichotillomania: What Is It?

Trichotillomania (trick- o-till-o-may-nee-uh) (TTM or “trich”), also known as Hair Pulling Disorder, is the repetitive pulling out of one’s hair. Trichotillomania is one of a group of behaviors known as Body-Focused Repetitive Behaviors (BFRBs). These self-grooming behaviors in which individuals pull, pick, scrape, or bite their hair, skin, or nails, resulting in damage to the body.

Research indicates that about 1 or 2 in 50 people experience
trichotillomania in their lifetime. It usually begins in late childhood/early puberty. In childhood, it occurs equally in boys and girls. By adulthood, 80-90% of reported cases are women. Hair pulling varies in its severity, location on the body, and response to treatment. Without treatment, trichotillomania tends to be a chronic condition that may come and go throughout a lifetime.

Signs & Symptoms

Trichotillomania is currently classified as an “Obsessive-Compulsive and Related Disorder” in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition. The DSM-5 diagnostic criteria include:

-Recurrent hair pulling, resulting in hair loss
-Repeated attempts to decrease or stop the behavior


●significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or another area of functioning
●Not due to substance abuse or a medical condition (e.g., dermatological condition)
● Not better accounted for by another psychiatric disorder

Hair pulling may occur across a variety of settings and with both sedentary and active lifestyles.

There are times when pulling occurs in a goal-directed manner and also in an automatic manner in which the individual is less aware. Many individuals report noticeable sensations before, during, and after pulling. A wide range of emotions, spanning from boredom to anxiety, frustration, and depression can affect hair pulling, as can thoughts, beliefs, and values.

Although the severity of hair pulling varies, many people with trichotillomania have noticeable hair loss, which they attempt to camouflage. Thinning or bald spots on the head may get covered up with hairstyles, scarves, wigs, extensions, or makeup. Those with missing eyelashes, eyebrows, or body hair, may attempt to camouflage with makeup, clothing, or other means of concealing affected areas.

Due to shame and embarrassment, those with trichotillomania may avoid activities and social situations that may lead to them feeling vulnerable to being “discovered.” This may include windy weather, going to the beach, swimming, doctorʼs visits, hair salon appointments, childhood sleepovers, readying for bed in a lighted area, and intimacy.

Impact and Effects

For some people, trichotillomania is a mild problem or frustration. But for many, shame and embarrassment about hair pulling causes painful isolation. This isolation may result in a great deal of emotional distress, placing them at risk for a co-occurring psychiatric disorder,
such as a mood or anxiety disorder. Hair pulling can lead to great tension and strained relationships with family members and friends. Family members may need professional help in coping with this problem.

Physical effects such as pruritus, tissue damage, infection, and repetitive motion injuries to the muscles or joints are not uncommon. Those who ingest the pulled hair or parts thereof may experience gastrointestinal distress or develop a trichobezoar (hairball in the intestines or stomach). The trichobezoar could lead to gastrointestinal blockage and need surgical removal. Although trichobezoars are rare, they are a serious risk for those who ingest hair.
