  • Don’t Let Pool Days Wreck Your Hair and Skin

    Summer weather is still going strong, which means that many of us have a few more pool days on the agenda. A dip in cool water can feel wonderfully refreshing on a hot day, yet swimming isn’t without its downsides. Some of the biggest risks of spending time in the pool are potential damage to hair and to skin. Indeed, repeated exposure to chlorine—to say nothing of sunlight or even just water itself—can lead to some problems.

    At LH Hair, Trichology Matters

    What’s the secret to having full, healthy, voluminous hair that lasts a lifetime? The answer is closely tied up with trichology—a sub-field of dermatology that deals with the overall health and wellness of the scalp. Without a healthy scalp, it’s tough to have healthy hair; in fact, scalp diseases and disorders are among the leading causes of hair loss, even though most individuals who have these conditions aren’t even aware of it! Being more proactive about scalp health, can lead to a fuller, more robust head of hair. That’s what trichology is all about—and in turn, it’s what we’re all about here at LH Hair.

  •  Does Emotional Trauma Trigger Hair Loss?

    Stress may be, first and foremost, a mental condition—but we all know that its effects can encompass the physical body, too. If you’ve ever been through a season of intense stress (and surely you have), you know that stress can impact your appetite and your ability to sleep. It can leave you feeling weary and exhausted. It can provoke a headache or an upset stomach. It can even make you more susceptible to sickness and disease.

  • Do You Show Signs of Male Pattern Baldness?

    Men can lose their hair for any number of reasons. Sometimes, the specific cause is pretty easy to determine; if you’re undergoing chemotherapy, or if you’re taking a medication that’s known to cause hair loss, that eliminates the guesswork. In other cases, though, the cause is tougher to determine—yet doing so is an essential step in deciding on the best course of treatment.

    That’s what makes it important to come down for an evaluation from one of our hair care professionals who can help you figure out why you’re losing your hair and what you can do to reverse the process. One thing you’ll definitely talk about with your technician is male pattern baldness—by far the leading cause of male hair loss.

    Indeed, if you know you’re not losing your hair due to chemotherapy or some other medical condition, you might just assume male pattern baldness is the culprit—but how can you be sure?

  • Vitamin D and Your Hair: Everything You Need to Know

    Growing up, you probably heard your mom or dad tell you about the importance of getting enough vitamins—about how vitamins help you grow up to be big, strong, and healthy. Well, that’s as true in adulthood as it is in childhood. Taking the right vitamins is necessary to keep all the parts of your body functioning as intended. And that includes your hair!

    Sadly, many of us don’t quite get the vitamins we need, and the results can be dire. Vitamin D deficiency is especially common. When we don’t get the Vitamin D that we need, it can have a negative impact on our hair follicles, among other things—and that can lead to suboptimal hair health and growth.

    What is Trichotillomania?

    At some point in your life, you may have had an experience where you felt so frustrated or angry that you almost could have pulled your hair out. What you may not realize is that this is an actual disorder. It’s called trichotillomania, and it’s essentially an impulse control disorder. The people who have this condition know that they’re damaging themselves when they twist or even rip their hair out, and yet they cannot stop themselves from doing it anyway.

  • Eating Right for Healthy Hair and Skin

    We all know the old saying: You are what you eat. Well, silly though it may sound, there’s actually some truth to it. The nutrients we consume help form the building blocks of our body—and that includes our hair and skin. In a real and direct way, what we eat determines the quality of our skin, our hair, and beyond.

    Understanding Male Pattern Baldness

    There are 55 million men in this country who struggle with hair loss—and if you’re not one of them, you may be worried that you could be. Hair loss is something that causes no small amount of anxiety in men, especially those who know that it’s a family trait. If your father lost his hair, there is a good chance that you’ll follow suit—or so the thinking goes.

    How Does Stress Affect Your Hair?

    You’ve probably heard jokes about stress and hair before: How a particularly trying situation can make a person go gray, or how too much anxiety leads to hair loss. But is there actually any truth to these jokes—or is it all a common misconception?

    When it comes to going gray, the science is still unsettled. While a stressful situation may make you want to rip your hair out, there is little evidence to suggest that stress actually accelerates the aging process or causes premature graying.

  • If there was such a thing as the "Da Vinci of Hair" it would be Lisa Hyde. She is not only a true artist but a magician as well. If Lisa and LH Hair can't make you look and feel your best I doubt it can be done.

  • I absolutely love my extensions, and have to say that no one ever knows I am wearing them, and shocked to learn how natural and easy they are to maintain! An added bonus for my monthly visit, is simply spending time with Lisa!! To say she is a "one of a kind" is putting it mildly! She is a true delight, dedicated to her craft and her clients! I would highly recommend LH Hair, one would not be disappointed!!

  • I have worn my hair at shoulder length for several years and in the past three or four years noticed that as I am aging, so is my hair! I wanted to add a little fullness to my hair, and one of my girlfriends, who is also a client of Lisa's, suggested I go in and see her. Lisa was great when we met and went over several ideas and options with me to give me the look I was wanting to achieve!
