Muli Musyoka is out on a mission to restore confidence through trichology - the scientific study of the health of hair and scalp.

What's the one hair myth that comes at the top of your head? Is it true?

Braiding makes hair grow faster. It is a fallacy.

 As a hair expert tell us one intriguing/fun fact about hair?

 The only thing about you that can’t be identified by your hair is your gender—men’s hair and women’s hair are identical in structure.

When was the last time you completely cut your hair?

I cut my hair every 2 months.

How bad/good is Kenya manufacturing hair products, are they conscious of our needs or should we be worried?

We have good quality products produced by some Kenyan manufacturers, however we still have a very long way to go in terms of achieving very efficacious products. Majority of the manufacturers are business oriented and will more likely just not deliver bare minimums in product.  They over promise but the formulas under deliver.

What do you think about women who wear wigs and weaves? 

Different people wear hair extensions and wigs for different reasons; we have women who have lost so much hair that the only option is to cover the hair loss with a wig or a weave. However there are people who are doing these styles to feel good and end up causing damage to the hair root that might cost them dearly to reverse. Though we get business from people who have lost hair, we do not celebrate when someone is losing hair and that’s why we have done a lot of education on our digital platform and on other mediums like conferences that we do.

 

 

What hair solutions do you offer a part from transplanting?

  • PRP: This is Platelet Rich Plasma in full. It refers to the use of growth factors from your own blood to accelerate cell multiplication on the scalp for faster thicker hair.
  • Stem Cells Therapy- We harvest adult stem cells from your adipose tissue around the tummy, which are then deposited onto the scalp to restore lost density and girth of thinning hair.  Adult stem cells are intelligent and can differentiate into any tissue in the local area they have been deposited.
  • Dietary supplementation where needed.
  • Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP)- this is creation of hair strands’ replica in a medical tattooing procedure that is offered to clients who keep short hair and do not have enough hair to donate to the balding area.
