In addition to extensions, wigs and related hair loss solutions, we also carry a wide range of hair care products that are designed to reverse thinning and revitalize the scalp and hair. Products include scientifically formulated shampoos and conditioners, overnight scalp treatments, leave-in thickeners, styling products and more. Most products are available for both natural and color-treated hair.

These products work by deep cleaning and improving the health of the scalp – clearing product buildup and excess oil from hair follicles and increasing blood flow to the scalp. This allows for more natural hair growth and protects from future hair loss. While that new growth is occurring, styling products can help to volumize and style your hair to make it appear thicker and healthier.

Vitamins can also be highly beneficial for those experiencing thinning hair. These daily supplements contain ingredients proven to promote healthy hair growth and overall health of hair, skin and nails.

At d.k. International, we carry unique specialty hair care products for thinning hair. Our experienced professionals can help you determine the right products for you, and recommend a specific treatment plan for thicker, healthier hair.

In our Bloomington hair loss salon, we offer a wide range of products for hair loss, with customizable solutions for every situation. Whether your hair loss is due to male or female pattern baldness, trichotillomania, chemotherapy, alopecia or another reason, d.k. International is here to help.

What are the Causes of and Treatments for Trichotillomania?

Understanding Obsessive Hair Pulling Disorder (Trichotillomania)

Hair-pulling, or trichotillomania, is a repetitive behavior of pulling out one’s hair, most commonly on the scalp, eyebrows or eyelashes. Here are some symptoms of trichotillomania, as well as causes and treatments from

Trichotillomania is categorized as a medical illness as well as an obsessive compulsive order. It usually starts in adolescents, ages 9-13, peaking around 12 and 13 years old. It may be caused simply from stress or boredom, but also as a result of a stressful event such as abuse, a family conflict or death in the family.

Symptoms include:

  • trichotillomania_eyelash_pullingPulling hair resulting in noticeable hairloss
  • Tension right before pulling hair
  • Relief or gratification when pulling out hair
  • Inability to stop, even after repeated attenpts to reduce hair pulling
  • Distress in social or occupational situations
  • Loss of control, embarrassment, shame

This reoccurring disorder does not lead to any dramatic medical problems, but directly affects one’s self-esteem and body image. One might feel ridicule from family and friends, which leads to avoiding relationships or social gatherings. The development can be life-long if not treated. Treatment includes therapy, producing awareness and providing substitute behaviors. Medications are also available which help release the sense of anxiety or stress, which is one of the main causes. Both are recommended for treatment to be most effective.

Thinning Hair: 2 Products To Add Volume And Style To Thinning Hair

Deb BeforeDeb After


Men and women with thin or thinning hair often times run into the problem of finding a style product that won’t weigh down their fine hair.  Hair Support has two products on the market that many people have found to give more body to their thin hair.  In this blog I’m going to talk about Hair Support’s foaming styling mousse and shaping spray, so you can maintain your desired style even though your hair is thinning.

Thin hair can be difficult to manage.  In most cases, it may be acceptable to throw your hair up into a ponytail, or put a hat on for errand running.  However, when more body is desired, it can seem like most hair products have the opposite effect on fine hair.  Typical hair styling products can weigh down fine hair, make your hair feel sticky or greasy, and can build up on the scalp, which could cause even more hair loss.  Hair Support has two products that will add body, make your hair manageable, and keep it in place:

Hair Support Foaming Styling Mousse – This mousse is unlike any other mousse you have experienced.  It’s specially formulated for thin hair as it contains no oils, while at the same time is moisture rich.  The mousse will give your hair volume, body, and manageability without the stickiness or weight left behind by traditional mousses.  Silk protein amino acids and panthenol condition and strengthen hair.  Hair Support Styling Mousse is an environmentally conscious product that is both alcohol free and PH balanced.

Hair Support Shaping Spray – This shaping spray gives style maintenance for thin, fine hair.  Shaping spray gives hair shine, flexibility, and support.  It has a special fine-mist spray head so thin, fine hair doesn’t get weighed down.

Now that you know of these products that will maintain your hairstyle and body, even though it’s fine or thinning, stop in to DK International to pick up your supply of Hair Support products.  Schedule your free one-hour consultation today with one of our trained technicians to see if Hair Support products are right for you.  Connect with us on Facebook so you can share our blog with the person you know who is wondering what products are available for thin or thinning hair.

How To Create The Perfect Environment For Thicker, Fuller Hair

hairmaxIf you’ve found that the residue of hair care products is causing your hair loss, you may be wondering what you can do to safely cleanse your hair and scalp.  Using shampoo may be necessary for clean and shiny hair, but is it worth it if it causes you to lose your hair?  Many people with this concern have turned to Hair Support products.  In this blog I want to talk about how incorporating Hair Support into your daily routine can create the perfect environment for longer, thicker, and healthier hair.


The use of hair product is necessary, however if they’re causing your hair loss it can leave you wondering what your options are.  Hair Support is the best product on the market for daily use for people with thinning hair.  Hair Support offers a regular shampoo and one for color treated hair.  Both cleanse and revitalize the scalp.  Satisfied customers have reported that their hair never tires of the shampoo, which can happen over time with other products as they build up on the hair and scalp.  Hair Support shampoo is different from regular shampoos in that it loosens buildup and debris that clog the oil glands that are harming the follicles.  Once those oil glands are unclogged, the follicle is healthy again and can return to its natural lifecycle.  Hair Support shampoos are safe, contain no medications or any animal derived products. 


Hair Support products aren’t available everywhere.  Luckily, DK International is a retailer of this amazing product.  Now that you know the benefits of this shampoo, call us to schedule your free one-hour consultation to see if Hair Support is right for you.  If you know someone who is concerned about their hair care products damaging their scalp, share us with them by “liking” our Facebook page. 

7 Causes Of Hair Loss

small__5586821778Lifestyle is a huge proponent of health.  The life one chooses to lead definitely makes itself physically known in the form of skin condition, weight gain, loss of weight and even loss of hair.  In this blog I’m going to talk about different avoidable and adjustable variables that could cause hair loss.

If you’re at all wondering if your lifestyle is causing unexplained hair loss, chances are there is something you’re doing on a regular basis that is causing you to have that thought.  There are certain circumstances that cause unavoidable hair loss, such as genetics or illness.  However, in some situations you may be able to change your environment or lifestyle to prevent, stop, or reverse the loss of hair.  Here are some common causes of hair loss that you may be able to control:

  • Consuming excessive amounts of caffeinated beverages
  • Poor eating habits
  • Smoking more than 20 cigarettes a day
  • Stressful life
  • Shampoo your hair only twice per week
  • Applying hair lotion on a scalp that isn’t clean
  • A build-up of hair care products and topical lotions

Changing the factors above that apply to you may stop or reverse thinning hair.  Using a product called Hair Support can help speed up the process of hair restoration as well as clean out clogged oil glands, which are damaging to hair follicles.  Changing certain unhealthy habits in your life will not only make you look better, you’ll find you have more energy and will feel better. 

DK International is a proud supplier of Hair Support products.  Schedule your free one-hour consultation today with one of our trained and knowledgeable technicians.  They know and understand what you’re going through with thinning hair and can work with you to pin point the cause of your specific hair loss.  Once your technician has determined the best course of treatment, you can conveniently purchase the Hair Support products you need through DK International.  Share this blog with the person you know whose lifestyle may be affecting their hair loss by following us on Facebook!

How To Stop A Preventable Cause Of Hair Loss

Sherry BeforeIf you’ve noticed your hair becoming thinner, you may be wondering what could be causing this sudden hair loss.  There may be a variety of medical reasons for your hair loss, however if the reason remains unidentified, it may be that you have damaged hair follicles.  In this blog, I want to talk about a non-medical cause of hair loss and how to treat it.

One common cause of hair loss is the build-up of hair care products.  We all have oil glands in our scalp, but the build-up of hair care products can clog the glands, thus damaging the follicle.  A damaged hair follicle can cause hair to fall out before its cycle is complete.  Losing a little bit of hair every day is normal, as every hair has a life cycle.  However, when too many cycles end at the same time, and a clogged gland blocks the follicle, it can prevent new hair from reaching the surface of the scalp.  This causes thinning hair or total hair loss. 

It is possible to treat this type of hair loss and regenerate follicles to a normal life cycle.  Hair Support is a topical solution that cleanses your scalp down to the follicle, unclogging the oil glands.  This restores the follicle back to a healthy state allowing it to begin its natural life cycle and regenerate hair growth.

Now that you know what could be causing your unexplained hair loss and how to fix it, you’re probably wondering where to get Hair Support.  DK International is a proud retailer of Hair Support.  You can preform treatments at home, however, it’s beneficial for you to schedule a free one-hour consultation with one of our knowledgeable technicians.  During your consultation, your technician will inspect your scalp and determine what is causing your hair loss.  You’ll then know what treatment will be most effective, thus saving you valuable time and money.  Contact DK International today to stop your hair loss in its tracks!  Follow us on Facebook and share us with the person you know who is worried they may be losing too much hair each day.
