On this episode, Dr. Ekpo, a hair transplant specialist and dermatologist talks about how to maintain healthy hair particularly in communities of color. We dispel some of the myth as it pertains to hair growth and how hair loss is irrevocably connected to your psychological and physical state. We discuss some of the more common dermatologic diseases which affect black people such as CCA ( central centrifugal cicatrical alopecia) and how hair loss can occur from two general processes, scarring vs non-scarring. We answer the question of are relaxers and perming safe? How often do you need to shampoo? Are natural shampoo and hair products better than non-natural hair products? How has hair transplantation become a commonality and the future it holds for hair restoration in the field of dermatology. Tune in for that and more!
