Thinning Hair? We can help!!

It’s a good thing Rapunzel was only 12 when she got stuck in the tower—had she been much older, her hair wouldn’t have been thick enough to climb. Nothing can turn sparse hair into an abundant mane, but using a follicle booster (which intuition can help you find the right one for you)  which actually stimulates the follicle, can slow down hair loss and promote growth.   And studies have shown that LED light activates the cells in the follicle that grow hair.  You should also get a good filter on your shower head so your hair isn’t being bombarded with hard water and additives.

Supplements can also beef up thin strands. “There’s a lot of science that vitamins that are good for skin—antioxidants, vitamin B, calcium, zinc, and iron—also promote healthy hair,” says Dawn Shannon, Master Stylist and owner of Intuition Salon and Spa.   “Biotin and niacin can do wonders for hair in a weakened state, but you don’t get enough from regular multivitamins.”  Doctors recommend at least 1,000 micrograms of biotin and 500 milligrams of niacin a day.

At the very least, shampoos and conditioners created for fine or thinning hair can give the appearance of thickness.  They coat the hair with a positive electric chargethat adheres to the hair’s negative charge, creating more space between each strand, which makes hair look fuller. Mousse, styling spray, and aerosol hair spray can also create fullness by lifting hair at the root. Heat-activated products, for their part, prevent damage and “seal conditioners into the hair fiber, which makes the hair thicker and firmer,” says Shannon.

A quick style modification can work, too.  As opposed to a wispy cut, thick bangs with slightly uneven ends create the illusion of more hair. If they start to look stringy as they grow out, a dry shampoo will help plump them up.

Dawn Shannon’s Intuition Salon & Spa Helping to Break the Chain of Poverty in Pinellas County

Celebrity Hair Stylist Dawn ShannonWith the loss of 5,000 jobs in Florida earlier this year and the unemployment rate unchanging, local business owner and founder of Intuition Salon & Spa, Dawn Shannon decided to take action and join the Boley Centers Youth Employment Program. [i]

According to the 2013 Update on The Economic Impact of Poverty Report for the Pinellas County Board of County Commissioners, there are five At-Risk Zones within Pinellas County that have higher concentrations of poverty than the County as a whole. These At-Risk Zones are East Tarpon Springs, North Greenwood, Highpoint, Lealman Corridor, and South St. Petersburg and they account for a larger portion of the unemployment rate. [ii]

An estimated 45% of Pinellas County’s total low-income population lives within the identified At-Risk Zones and 30% of the youth do not graduate from high school. This situation is what led the Boley Centers to launch their Youth Empowerment Program (YEP) in 2013. [iii]

The purpose of YEP is to help provide young people in high school and college the opportunity to earn much needed funds while teaching them valuable work skills and work ethics by matching them with participating local employers.

“As a business owner, mother and active member of the community I wanted to be able to help local youth in their search for a career,” said Dawn Shannon, owner of Intuition Salon & Spa. “By participating in YEP I am able to help the kids in our area in a meaningful way that will help them succeed in life.”

Employers participating in YEP pay 50% of the employed youths wage while helping them build self-esteem and hopefully better preparing them not only to join the work force but to also graduate high school and seek higher education. The program operates year round providing students in Pinellas county ages 15 through graduation internships where they work up to 15 hours per week when school is in session and up to 30 hours per week during summer breaks.
