Williams hosts formal and informal seminars where she shares a wealth of information to the general public with the goal of empowering women when it comes to caring for their hair properly.

Melva Williams has researched what it takes to have a healthy head of hair, what it takes to get a persons hair to grow and how to track down issues with problem hair.

She teaches these things to the stylist that are under her to ensure that everyone has all the information needed to help every woman that we style.

The focus of her seminar sessions usually includes providing information on general hair care and physical health to include diet, exercise, stress, hydration, medication, hormones which are often overlooked but have a great impact on the health of one hair.

Williams shares a few key notes when considering women’s hair and health:

1. How over exercising builds up testosterone and thins out womens hair.

2. When some women are going through hormonal issues they don’t feel a need to take medication but that change effects their hair.

3. Stress is one of the #1 cause of hair loss, there are 3 main stress factors.

4. Women who have Iron deficiency but are not properly taking their iron or not enough will have problems with thinning hair.

5. Even after you have gone to the Salon and your hair is clean and your scalp continues to itch and you are drinking plenty of water. You could be low on vitamin D, when you have your yearly done always ask for vitamin levels.

6. It is impossible to have healthy hair if you do not drink water, you must hydrate yourself.

7. There are medications and environmental influences that cause hair loss.

8. Dietary factors that cause hair loss anorexia and weight loss surgery. How you really are what you eat, and it is affecting your hair.

9. There are foods that can aide in hair growth. Foods with B vitamins.

“The healthy hair seminars empower women to care for their hair properly and make women aware with medical issues and hair issues that are related to help them connect the dots,” she said.

      Thank you Jane. I think what is the most unique thing is that we have a sisterhood here. I don’t allow gossiping or negativity of any kind. When people come here they know that they will be uplifted, encouraged and motivated they look forwarded to their salon visit with me.

    I would like to thank you for taking the time write this article on my salon and research I really appreciate it very much. It is only through avenues like this that I can truly reach more women and help them connect the dots that their medical issues and hair issues are related. Also through the research I was able to formulate my own hair care treatment Jeannie In A Bottle that has many women to restore their hair. You can order through the website http://www.somethingspecialstylingsalon.net

    Thank you,

    Hi Melva, so glad to see this article ,what a blessing!!! I must say you’re a great stylist,when i first came to you my hair needed some work and you reassured me that you would take care of my hair. It’s been 3months now and my hair is so healthy and beautiful. You also educated me on hydrating my body to help hydrate my hair even though im still working on that lol. Thanks for my healthy hair.
