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.
