So hair isn't that important?  Well, to Pittsburgh Steelers Troy Polamalu it certainty is.  The NFL star just insured his treasured locks for 1 million with Lloyds of London.  

The famed All-Pro safety has made quite a name for himself claiming the three-foot-locks are a tribute to his Samoan heritage.  In any case we are quite impressed Troy!

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.

Hair Health: Scalp Cleanse

Posted by Rob Beale on Thu, Dec 11, 2008 @ 02:57 PM

In a recent article for Mens Health magazine, one of the best grooming tips for your hair is utilizing your Shampoo to cleanse your scalp.

"Scrubbing the head's epidermis prevents flakes, dryness, redness, and itching by keeping pores clean and buildup from accumulating. Your job: to finesse the shampoo as close as possible to the scale like base of the hair shaft, using your fingertips to gently massage the scalp in a circular motion."

I will be writing more on this subject in the coming weeks as well as recommending shampoos and therapys so stay tuned...
