The solution to fine and thinning hair


So many of us are told we have to suffer in silence about the issue of hairloss and hair thinning, nothing could be further from the truth. There are many solutions to female pattern baldness, thinning hair and fine hair, the most important thing is to take the first step and seek the advice of a professional. At Christos one of our most popular  service for fine thinning hair involves using a system from Banbury Postiche, the oldest wig making company in the UK. 

The Postiche Lite Volumiser has been extensively tested on clients with fine thinning hair and hair loss problems. The finest quality eurotex hair is used in the construction of these hair pieces, they are ultra light to wear and easily integrated with natural hair. Our clients have been thrilled with the results, they have had lots of compliments about their hair and their confidence has been restored. 

The Postiche Lite Hair Volumiser is made using the finest silk bases which ensure the most natural look and allows the scalp to breathe and keep the head cool. The hair has a natural wave and can be blow dried and straightened. Heated rollers can be used and the hair is easy for a professional stylist to cut and style. 

The first step is an in depth consultation with our fully qualified stylists who are experts in the area of hair replacement. We carry out some non invasive tests on the hair and look at all possible solutions. Sometimes the client just might need a creative hair cut or a different colour to disguise the hair thinning. All our consultations are carried out upstairs in our private salon and they are free of charge. When we choose the Postiche Lite Hair Volumiser for the client we get a colour match and rebook the client in. 

We get just as excited and apprehensive as the client on their fitting day. We prepare the clients hair and fit the Volumiser into place. It is not harmful to the hair, the client cannot feel anything, it is light and easy to maintain.The results are continuously amazing and the excitement ripples through the salon with everyone wanted to come and have a look. The system is worn 24/7 by the client, it is comfortable to sleep in and easy to wash. The client returns to the salon on a regular basis for us to remove the Volumiser, clean it, re-style the clients hair and re-fit the system. 

Please do not carry on worrying or just living with your hair loss or hair thinning problems. Call us and book a free consultation. This system is affordable and easy to maintain, it will dramatically improve the density and volume of your hair and give you more confidence.

An Advanced Skincare Approach To Hair

Nioxin has found inspiration in skincare to supply advanced treatment for thinning hair. As an extension of facial skin, the scalp requires the same attention and care, the Nioxin range is designed to strengthen, nourish and treat hair from its foundation. Good scalp health delivers hair with a thicker, fuller appearance. We know how many of us buy products only to find they do not work and they end up in the bathroom cupboard until we have our annual clean out! Nioxin is an in salon product range, you may find random products elsewhere however the range is designed to be customised for individual needs, to get the best result from a system such as Nioxin we recommend only purchasing the product from a professional salon who will provide a detailed consultation.

Thinning hair is caused by fewer hair strands, finer hair strands and an unhealthy scalp environment for hair to grow from. With a lot of our clients suffering from hair loss due to breakage and environmental factors we start with Scalp Renew, a Dermabrasion Professional In-Salon Service, we would describe it as an amazing facial for the scalp. This cosmetic treatment accelerates the removal of stubborn scalp debris and build-up around follicle sites, such as dead skin cells and excessive sebum (oil). Scalp Renew removes build-up on the scalp to help restore it to a good condition, by accelerating scalp skin surface regeneration through exfoliation up to 34% faster than untreated skin. This invigorating service is available with one of our fully trained Nioxin technicians and is available for men and women.

The treatment is then continued by the client at home using the Nioxin Scalp Renew Density Protection Treatment. this is a clinically tested, anti breakage cosmetic hair treatment with Crystalline infusion. The use of Scalp Renew Dermabrasion Treatment with the Density Protection Treatment helps restore a dense, vibrant and healthy appearance to the hair and reduce hair loss by an average of 54%.

We care about our clients and take immense pride in our work. If you are suffering from any issues regarding your hair, including hair loss and hair thinning then please call us on 01908 611277  to book your free consultation.

Carla’s Story

In the salon we see many different variations of Alopecia, ranging from areata to trichotillomania. Dealing with the psychological needs of the client dealing with alopecia is as important as finding them a solution that gives them back choices. We are passionate about allowing our clients to feel good about their appearance and give them back control over something they thought they could not change.

The link shows one of our clients, Carla and as it says, it is her story. Thank you Carla for being a brave and inspirational lady. We know your film will help others. Sincere thanks from all of us.

The ‘WOW’ Factor

ImageWe’ve all been amazed this week by this fabulous new product that’s left us and our customers extremely excited and pre-ordering the new innovative way of covering roots and blending in grey roots without using hair dye.

The Wow Root Cover Up is the perfect product to camouflage our roots for that last minute night out we all plan but forget that our roots are starting to show. Presented in the form of a powder, Wow cover up looks like an eyeshadow compact complete with an applicator brush; it is quick and simple to use:

  • Apply to dry hair
  • Fast & Easy, no mess
  • Water resistant, lasts from shampoo to shampoo
  • Perfect results in under a minute
  • 60 Application Kit
  • Colour your hair less often

The best thing about Cover Wow is that it retains the hairs natural shine and takes away any oil at the root of the hair so it doesn’t look greasy. Most people that colour their hair blonde or red find that as their roots start to come through their scalp becomes more greasy quickly. Another thing we love about the Wow cover up is that it is waterproof meaning once applied it can only be removed when the hair is next shampooed.

The best way to use this product:

Start with dry/styled hair, apply to roots starting at the scalp and working out, repeat until roots disappear, then apply to temples and other grey hair as needed. The customers that have already purchased the Wow cover up are declaring it as a must have in our beauty regime.
