What is Holistic Hair Treatment?

Holistic therapy attempts to treat the whole person, including mind and body, not just the symptoms of the problem. For hair and scalp problems, we would ask you to visit us for a consultation so that we can learn more about you and your lifestyle to help us to treat you effectively

Holistic Hair Treatment  Your Karen Wright Consultation

When you visit our Croydon hair salon for your holistic hair treatment consultation, we will first discuss your hair goals. What is it that you want to achieve with your hair? Then we move onto the problem, what is it that you're unhappy with? We will perform an overall observation of your hair and scalp which will take into account the following :

  • Hair - we will look at your hair type, the density of your hair and the condition of your ends.
  • Scalp - we will assess the health of your scalp including signs of dehydration and skin cell or product build up. 

This observation will be done under a microscope, which will give your Karen Wright expert a closer and more in-depth view of your hair cuticles and the condition of your scalp.

What Are The Benefits of an Holistic Hair Treatment at Karen Wright Salon?

Once we have observed you hair and scalp problem we will work out a treatment plan for you. This may include :

  • A healthy nutrition plan to nourish your hair and scalp from within
  • A guide to supplements to help improve the condition of your hair and scalp
  • Suggested hairstyles to help protect and preserve the condition of your hair and scalp
  • Your microscope pictures from your consultation as a "before" example. 

Holistic Hair Treatments - Frequently Asked Questions

No. It's actually better for us to see you when your hair is unwashed. If you feel that you need to wash your hair, for example you have an itchy scalp, you can lightly shampoo your hair 48 hours before your appointment.  
This is not completely necessary. If your hair is already out, please comb your hair all the way through on the day of your appointment. If you have taken your hair out of a weave or plaits, it is important that you comb your hair through properly to remove any loose hairs that will have accumulated while your hairstyle was in.
Yes, check ups usually take place three months after your initial consultation. The aim of the check-up is to see how you're getting on, adjust your treatment if necessary and answer any questions you have.
It may not be what you want to hear, but holistic hair treatment will not work overnight and will require time and patience. We are all unique and respond to treatment in equally unique ways. Some patients may see an improvement more quickly than others. There are other factors to take into consideration such as health, stress and lifestyle changes which can determine how quickly your hair responds to treatment.
Photos will be taken of your condition at your initial appointment, you will also receive your microscope pictures from your consultation, and your condition will be monitored at each check-up.
