This is one of the most exciting posts that I've written in a while. A dream of mine finally came true. For the longest, I've wanted to have my hair analyzed and now I can scratch it off my bucket list. You may remember from part 1 of this series that I sent over some hair samples to the good folks at Komaza hair care. Once they received the hair and analyzed it, I was contacted to discuss the results via phone consultation.
To be honest with you. I was deathly afraid of what would come back. Why? Because for the past 4-6 months, I've been pretty negligent with my hair. I haven't been giving it the attention it deserves and was experiencing, first hand, the result of my actions. I was so nervous, in fact, that I trimmed (cut) around 2 inches so I can get a head start on getting everything back on track.
The person on the other line was super friendly. She took her time to discuss my results and answer any questions. There were lots of pics but I wanted to show you the most interesting ones. So without further adieu, let's get started....
There were several slides of my hair roots included in the summary. She stressed that they look closely at the root to see if there are any signs of thinning. All of my shed hair had a full, healthy bulb. In her words, "healthy root means healthy growth." I'm glad to hear that.
This was probably one of the coolest images. Check out this knot. Years ago, I was plagued with single strand knots but lately, not so much. In fact, if I hadn't seen this pic, I wouldn't even thought about single stand knots as a concern. But now that I'm confronted with this image, I will be on the lookout to determine if this is a random occurrence or something I should be worried about.
There were several pics depicting various types of breakage. Some at the end of the strand, some in the middle. Just looking at these pictures make me cringe. The stress point damage (below), she said, could be caused by me wearing a bun in the same place day in and day out. The mid shaft breakage could be contributed to over manipulation coupled with lack of protein.
Another thing she mentioned was that I seemed to have obvious product buidup. She invited me to introduce a baby shampoo into my regimen. The recommendation of a baby shampoo is so my scalp does not get irratated due to my seborrheic dermatitis.
Oh, she also acknowledged me several times during our conversation for the amount of water I drink daily (takes a long swig from water bottle).
We talked specifically about what actions I should take based on my hair's strengths and opportunity areas. I took copious notes and will discuss my next steps in full detail in a follow up post. Even though I'm a veteran at this hair game, there were still some new insights that I got from the consultation. Can't wait to share with you!!!!
What do you think of these pics, pretty crazy huh?
