What medical conditions is the Kinsey System suitable for?
Pretty much any temporary or permanent hair loss or thinness including:
ANDROGENETIC ALOPECIA OR GENETIC THINNING
Hair loss attributed to genetic factors; can often be "patchy" with particular severity in one or two areas of the head. Often referred to as androgenetic alopecia or male or female pattern baldness. Extremely common.
Damage or loss caused by compulsive hair-pulling and twisting, with increased severity during times of emotional stress. Our system is particularly effective here because pulling at our hair won't give you the same "sensation" as pulling out your own hair. We also find that because clients have invested hard-earned money in the system, they're less likely to pull! And using the system temporarily gives your natural hair "a rest", allowing unhindered regrowth and renewal.
Caused by undue stress on the hair including ill-fitting wigs and badly fitted hair weaves or human hair extensions. If the damage isn't permanent, in some instances we may recommend baby-fine Mark Glenn Hair Extensions to help your hair recover.
OTHER FORMS OF ALOPECIA
Including hair loss caused by scarring or cicatricial alopecia, unknown conditions, emotional stress, hormones, nutritional issues, the menopause and pregnancy. We can also work with alopecia areata, as long as the hair has now stabilised and no longer falling out.
Often caused by home colouring, perms, over-bleaching or salon negligence. Can also be caused by the use of relaxers in Afro-Caribbean hair.
Including burns, malicious assault, trauma etc.
DRUGS AND SURGERY
Through drug side-effects, brain surgery, cosmetic surgery and cancer treatments including chemotherapy etc.
EXTREMELY FINE HAIR
Some people just naturally have extremely fine hair, which often results in sections of the scalp being clearly visible. Depending on the client, we may use our Kinsey System or baby-fine Mark Glenn Hair Extensions.
