March 27, 2018:  Another Reason for Hair Loss:  Just as pregnancy hormone changes can cause hair loss, so can switching or going off birth-control pills. This can also cause telogen effluvium, and it may be more likely if you have a family history of hair loss. The change in the hormonal balance that occurs at menopause may also have the same result. The androgen (male hormone) receptors on the scalp becoming activated. The hair follicles will miniaturize and then you start to lose more hair.

What to do: If a new Rx is a problem, switch back or talk to your doctor about other birth control types. Stopping oral contraceptives can also sometimes cause hair loss, but this is temporary. Don't make your problem worse with hair-damaging beauty regimens.

March 8, 2018:  Pull Out a Grey and Three Will Grow: Myth

Over time, repeatedly pulling out hairs from the same follicle can cause traction alopecia, where the trauma of plucking can damage and scar the follicle to the point that it no longer produces hair. This is the basic reasoning behind plucking eyebrows but it also applies to the hairs on your head, so pulling them out on a regular basis can make them go away for good. However, occasionally pulling out a grey before date night shouldn’t cause any significant problems. However, if you have hair loss problems or thinning, then call Acropolis Hair Studio at 865 544 4440 and see how we can help!

March 5, 2018:Hair loss affects more than 50 million men and women in the United States. Fortunately, there are numerous non-surgical hair replacement solutions available for hair loss sufferers who want fast, comfortable, and affordable relief from thinning hair or balding. If you want to achieve a thicker, fuller-looking head of hair, consult with your non-surgical hair replacement provider in Knoxville, Tennessee. There are a few reasons why non surgical hair replacement is a great solution:
No Surgery Means No Pain 
One of the main advantages of non-surgical hair replacement is that it’s non-surgical. In addition to avoiding the pain and discomfort associated with hair transplant surgery, non-surgical solutions can help you avoid other complications of surgery such as the risk of infection and the possibility of scarring. Some patients who undergo hair transplant surgery experience sudden loss of the newly transplanted hair, requiring additional procedures.

Guaranteed Results in a Fraction of the Time 
If you undergo hair transplant surgery, it may take six months or longer to see any noticeable results. With non-surgical hair replacement systems, however, you can have a full head of hair in as little as four weeks (or however long it takes to complete your custom hairpiece). Non-surgical hair replacement solutions also offer guaranteed results for anyone suffering from hair loss. Human hair wigs, clip-in hair extensions, and other non-surgical systems is an option for men, women, and children suffering from any cause of hair loss.

More Affordable Than Surgery 
Another big advantage of non-surgical hair replacement is that the solutions themselves are much more affordable than hair transplant surgery. Hair transplantation can cost upwards of $15,000, and the procedure is rarely covered by insurance. Hair extensions, wigs, and other non-surgical hair loss solutions cost a fraction of hair transplant surgery. Contact Polly at Acropolis at 865 544 4440 or at to see what your options are.

From June 20, 2018

Mistakenly thought to be a strictly male disease, women actually make up forty percent of American hair loss sufferers. Hair loss in women can be absolutely devastating for the sufferer's self image and emotional well being.

Unfortunately, society has forced women to suffer in silence. It is considered far more acceptable for men to go through the same hair loss process. Even more unfortunately, the medical community also treats the issue of women's hair loss as if it were nonexistent. Since hair loss doesn't appear to be life threatening, most physicians pay little attention to women's complaints about hair loss and essentially tell their patients that "it's no big deal", and that "you'll just have to live with it."

Of course what these physicians don't seem to realize is that the psychological damage caused by hair loss and feeling unattractive can be just as devastating as any serious disease, and in fact, can take an emotional toll that directly affects physical health.

The American Hair Loss Association recognizes that hair loss is women is a serious life altering condition that can no longer be ignored by the medical community and society as a whole.
