Trichologist Maureen Toohey Gets to the Root of the Problem

Maureen Toohey—a trichologist and owner of Fresh Organic Salon, in Bedford Hills—has been assisting individuals with alopecia (hair loss), scalp disorders and hair conditions for more than 30 years. This experience, along with comprehensive research, enables her to get to the root of the problem.

Toohey says that she has been concerned over the last few years regarding the significant increase in the amount of hair shedding, as well as severe skin and scalp issues. “Individuals have reported up to 50 percent loss in some cases.”

When clients come in seeking her advice, Toohey says she reads the scalp and the hair, which she says are like a thermostat. “When your body systems are not in harmony or overloaded, it slows down other systems and cuts off nutrients and blood supply. Skin and scalp disorders show up, which can lead to more permanent hair loss.”

Toohey shares that she has been successful in assisting individuals in restoring and maintaining healthy hair growth, a healthy scalp and overall health and wellness. She starts with an in-depth evaluation to get to the root cause and uses a holistic approach that includes proven therapies for restoring youthfulness to one’s hair, scalp balance and overall wellness.

According to Toohey, all of the products she uses are safe, have no side effects, are nonabrasive and effective. She also uses laser therapy, which she says is the only U.S. Food & Drug Administration-approved treatment that produces 99.9 percent results in regrowth. In addition, she collaborates with her clients’ doctors, dermatologists and integrative medicine practitioners. She also strongly recommends living a nontoxic lifestyle, eating healthily and reducing stress through mind-body practices such as meditation.
