Your Salon: A Safe Haven for Having the Hair Loss Conversation
From the time she became your client, you’ve talked about absolutely everything. Should she go blonder for her daughter’s wedding? Why does her sister get so crazy during the holidays? Her mom’s battle with cancer—that was a tough one! And then one day, this happens: as she settles into your chair, she says, in a very quiet voice, “I’m not sure what’s going on, but all of a sudden I seem to be losing my hair. It’s feeling so thin and I’m noticing more and more in the shower every time I shampoo. What should I do?”
Like you, Celebrity Stylist, Jill Crosby—whose resume includes work with Julie Bowen, Melissa McCarthy, Diane Keaton, Allison Janney, Alanis Morissette and Sarah Bareilles—has been there. “I have thinning hair myself, so I have a lot of empathy for this issue,” says Jill. “It’s an emotional situation for our clients. Statistically, 1 in 3 women will notice hair loss in their lifetime. There’s a lot of confusion around this subject and a lot of products out there. As stylists, we’re in the best position to provide the tools our clients need to tackle this problem, and to help women feel more beautiful and confident.”
Your Tool for Change
When the hair loss conversation starts with a client, Jill typically begins with some gentle fact-finding to determine the possible cause. She asks about changes in health, diet, exercise or medications to assess whether or not the hair loss is hereditary (which it is in 95% of cases).
She tries to gauge how much hair the client is losing—50 to 100 hairs a day is considered normal; more may be a sign of significant hair loss. She shares ideas about the best cuts, color and styling products to camouflage the situation, and ways to volumize and make the most of the hair the client has. And now, there’s a new tool at her disposal—Women’s Rogaine® Foam with 5% Minoxidil.
“Women’s Rogaine® Foam is a game changer for stylists!” Jill declares. “It actually helps regrow hair, which puts us in a new category of what we can do for our clients. It’s backed by clinical studies and is FDA-approved, which proves that it regrows hair in 81 percent of women—and the hair that comes in is up to 48 percent thicker. It’s the only, once-daily, FDA-approved product with 5% Minoxidil for growing hair, which means that the science is solid, safe and proven.”
Jill also appreciates the support provided by the Rogaine® Brand for stylists and clients—a full complement of information and education designed to position stylists as experts and make the hair loss conversation as comfortable as possible for clients. “I don’t want there to be a taboo around this condition anymore,” Jill comments, “and I think Women’s Rogaine® Foam is really helping women to address that. They’re being so conscientious about the holistic well-being of women—aesthetically and emotionally. Personally, I’m excited to be working with a company that is so committed to helping people and removing the stigma around this condition!”
