Revolutionary. We are very excited to report that we will be offering a brand-new and highly exclusive hair product and treatment line out of Compassionate Beauty. During 2011, Colleen McDonald-Sanheim, our wig and Trichology specialist, travelled to Toronto, Ontario to gain qualifications and valuable knowledge from Novera International, a Canadian powerhouse in the world of hair-replacement products and education. To usher in the New Year of 2012, Compassionate Beauty is proud to offer the new line, Terapo Medik, dedicated to combating scalp and hair-loss issues, which include Alopecia, other medical hair-loss, and hair-loss due to medication or cancer treatment.
Ever heard from the dentist: everyone has gingivitis, just varying degrees? Well, the same idea applies to problems of the scalp. From product build-up to over-processing, the roots of our hair are being suffocated from plaque and other inhibitors. This means that any treatments or products intended for the root of the hair isn’t getting to where it need to be. This is especially applicable for clients looking for solutions to stimulate hair growth and alter the hair-cycle. At Compassionate Beauty, we offer a series of Cabin Treatments. These are intensive and purifying treatments that are performed by our Trichologist to help breakdown build-up and and plaque to allow other products to work more effectively at the root of the hair.
Terapo Medik (TM) was developed by the Canadian company, Laboratoire Nature, and is a professional line of shampoos and treatments that use only carefully chosen natural ingredients, which makes it a premium scalp health care solution. Whether the hair loss is caused from alopecia, chemotherapy, or radiation, TM can help your scalp give relief to irritation, itchiness and dryness, and eventually help your hair come into its full potential. Read on to learn about the different products and which may be best suited to you and your needs!
Chemotherapy and Radiation: People undergoing chemotherapy or radiotherapy have much less active sebaceous glandsand papillae, causing the skin and scalp to become very dry. To prevent thinning due to hair follicle shrinkage, their sebaceous glands must be stimulated.
With the Térapo Médik line, you can moisturize your scalp throughout the therapy period, using gentle, natural products that were specially designed for your condition.
At home, you can use Feminine Complex Shampoo to clean and purify the scalp, normalize the hair cycle and stimulate regrowth. To moisturize a sensitive scalp due to treatment effects, you can alternate between Feminine Complex Shampoo and Dry Scalp Shampoo. No lotions should be used during the treatment period.
For body care, we recommend Bioplant Protective Body Wash. Its 100% natural ingredients are mineral oil-free,silicone-free, sulfate-free and residue-free. This pH-balanced body wash contains sweet almond oil and B5 provitamins to provide the skin with a complete and natural protective barrier against environmental aggressors.
30 Days After Chemotherapy/Radiation Treatment:Continue home care by applying a few drops of Stimulating Complex Lotion to the scalp after each shampoo (at least 3 times a week).
