Can Marijuana Cause Hair Loss?

Posted by Rob Beale on Wed, Nov 04, 2009 @ 03:59 PM

I've been answering a lot of questions lately about smoking marijuana and the effects it can have on adrogenetic alopecia.  Simply put, can marijuana cause hair loss?  

Fortunetly not, but it can aggravate such medical conditions such as alopecia areata (bald spots on the scalp). 

Smoking marijuana habitually can cause a general loss of hair through its effects on the liver, but since 2002, Evolution Hair Centers have never treated a client with hair loss directly related or steming from smoking marijuana.

Agassi Admits Mane Was A Wig

Posted by Rob Beale on Mon, Nov 02, 2009 @ 03:59 PM

LONDON (AFP) – Former tennis star Andre Agassi has admitted the lion mane-style hairstyle he sported during the 1990s was actually a wig, in extracts from his autobiography published in British newspapers Saturday.

Agassi said he wore a hairpiece held together with pins in his first Grand Slam final, the 1990 French Open final, and blamed his concerns that it would fall apart for losing the match to Andres Gomez.

Before the match he prayed “not for victory, but that my hairpiece would not fall off”, he writes in “Open”.

In previous excerpts, Agassi admitted he had used the drug crystal methamphetamine in 1997.

He said he started to wear a wig to disguise hair loss.

“Every morning I would get up and find another piece of my identity on the pillow, in the wash basin, down the plughole,” he wrote.

“I asked myself: you want to wear a toupee? On the tennis court? I answered myself; what else could I do?”

But the wig began to disintegrate as he took a shower the night before the Paris final—“probably I used the wrong hair rinse,” Agassi writes.

He panicked and called his brother Philly into the room. Together, they managed to clamp the wig together using clips and pins.

Agassi, 39, writes: “Of course I could have played without my hairpiece, but what would all the journalists have written if they knew that all the time I was really wearing a wig?

“During the warming-up training before play I prayed. Not for victory, but that my hairpiece would not fall off.

“With each leap, I imagine it falling into the sand. I imagine millions of spectators move closer to their TV sets, their eyes widening and, in dozens of dialects and languages, ask how Andre Agassi’s hair has fallen from his head.”

It was actress Brooke Shields, who he married, who persuaded him to cut off all his remaining hair.

“She said I should shave my head,” he said. “It was like suggesting I should have all my teeth out.

“Nevertheless, I thought for a few days about it, about the agonies it caused me, the hypocrisy and lies.”

But after taking the plunge, “a stranger stood before me in the mirror and smiled,” Agassi said.

“My wig was like a chain and the ridiculously long strands in three colours like an iron ball which hung on it.”

Agassi won eight Grand Slams during his career and is one of only six men to win all four major titles.

Health: Detox with Sonne's #7

Posted by Rob Beale on Mon, Jan 26, 2009 @ 12:13 PM
Here at Evolution Hair Centers, we have been using Sonne's #7 for years and through in-clinic analysis we've discovered that approximately 88% of cllients that went through the detox at the start of our hair growth program had better results at the end of the program than did the clients that did not start out with any kind of detox protocal.  
 

 
 
Sonne’s #7 Detoxificant, by Sonne’s Organic Foods, Inc., is an all-natural detoxification supplement derived from a rich volcanic clay known as Bentonite. Through a special process designed to isolate the detoxifying ingredient in Bentonite, Sonne’s #7 is able to absorb, or physically bind, positively charged substances in the body. According to the product website, the majority of metabolic, environmental, and chemical wastes that need eliminated from the body are indeed positively charged. The active ingredient in Sonne’s #7 is not digested, and so it is excreted from the body, along with the bound toxins. #7 Detoxificant is a part of Sonne’s 7 Day Cleansing Program Kit.
Ingredients At A Glance
Sonne’s #7 Detoxificant contains Bentonite, the mineral-rich volcanic clay mentioned above. However, through a refining process that removes mica, dirt, and impurities, Bentonite is reduced to its active detoxifying ingredient, Montmorillonite. This refining process is “exclusive and secret,” according to the product website. The description simply indicates that, when it’s all said and done, the purified Montmorillonite is put in a liquid colloidal-gel state, sterilized, and subjected to lab tests that ensure it is suitable for consumption. As an indication of the absorptive powers of Bentonite/Montmorillonite, Sonne’s only packages their #7 Detoxificant in glass bottles, as the Montmorillonite can leach petrochemicals from plastic bottles. Consumers ought to be wary of any other Bentonite detoxification products that are packaged in plastic.
