Plano, TX hair transplant surgeon, Dr. Joseph Yaker, offers nonsurgical therapeutic hair care solutions that help men and women restore the health and pH balance of their hair. His special TCHR Hair Rejuvenation System consists of a low pH shampoo (pH 3.4) and conditioner (pH 4.0) that restore vitality to the hair by deep cleaning the scalp and reestablishing the moisture content and physiological pH that is needed for healthy hair growth.
The pH level of your skin, including your scalp, is between 4.5 and 5.5, which means it is more acidic. Actually, your skin has a “film” on its exterior called the “acid mantle.” The purpose of the acid mantle is to protect your skin from contaminants, bacteria, and viruses and other environmental toxins. These attackers tend to be alkaline in nature, so the role of this acidic mantle on your skin is protection, which it accomplishes by dissolving the harmful particles trying to penetrate it. This is why maintaining your skin’s naturally acidic pH is important. Using shampoos and conditioners that are too alkaline can destroy the protective acid mantle. Unfortunately, the average pH of the typical name brand shampoo and conditioner is over 6. Because of the damage it does to the acid mantle, cleansing with shampoos and conditioners that have a pH over 5.5 is harmful to your scalp and inhibits proper hair health and thus hair growth and texture.
In addition, each day we build up dead skin cells, oil, sweat and hair products that form a plaque that sits on top of our scalp. This plaque causes our scalp pH levels to rise, leading to certain scalp conditions such as clogged follicles, bacterial infections, dry scalp, oily scalp, dandruff and even hair loss. Also, if you already suffer form certain scalp conditions, you can develop chronic flare-ups. Moisture retention is pH dependent. Maintaining an acidic pH less than 5.5 causes the hair cuticle, the outside layer of your hair shaft, to flatten and seals the moisture into the hair shaft leading to richer, fuller hair. Most shampoos and conditioners have higher pH levels leading to hair shaft swelling which opens up the hair cuticle leading to loss of moisture and hair shaft damage, as well as dry, frizzy hair.

About the TCHR System
TCHR Hair Rejuvenation System’s unique delivery system utilizing glycolic acid in a low pH formula is proven to reinforce the roots and improve hair structure, repair and restore pH balance to the scalp, and generate body and volume. It can safely be used for fine, thinning or chemically treated hair.
What is Glycolic Acid?
Glycolic acid is a scientifically advanced skin care ingredient that is derived naturally from sugar cane. It is commonly used in facial cleansers due to its powerful exfoliating ability. In addition, it functions to repair the surface of the scalp by loosening and sweeping away oil (sebum), dirt, bacteria and dead skin cells from the scalp and hair. This process restores overall body, thickness and manageability for visibly healthier hair. It also restores moisture content and pH of the scalp and hair to create an environment suitable for hair follicle growth.
TCHR Hair Repair Vitamins
Around 97% of our hair is comprised of a structural protein called keratin. Aminoplex is a completely natural oral supplement formulated with specific amino acids (building blocks of protein) that produce keratin. It rejuvenates brittle and thinning hair for a visibly thicker, healthier appearance.
Hair grows from the inside out, and so does hair health. That’s our approach with the TCHR Hair Rejuvenation System. The Aminoplex supplements work to nourish hair with essential amino acids, while the volumizing glycolic acid shampoo and conditioner go deep down to treat the conditions that rob your hair of moisture and vitality, restoring body, shine and volume.
Myths About Hair Washing
While shampooing your hair is extremely important to maintain the health of your hair, it is of equal, if not of greater importance, to effectively cleanse your scalp to remove the build up of debris you develop daily.
It is often thought that frequent shampooing can dry out the hair’s natural oils (sebum). Your hair’s natural oils sit on top of your hair shaft but don’t penetrate the hair cuticle like water does. So proper daily shampooing with low acidic hair products don’t strip your natural oils, they hydrate your hair. It’s moisture (water) and not your hairs natural oils that keep your hair supple. In addition, your scalp and face produces the most amount of oil (sebum) compared to any other part of the body. So it’s important to cleanse your scalp daily, the way the skin all over the body requires cleaning for good hygiene. You take your hair and scalp to the same places you take your face, and it gets just as dirty.
The Simple Solution
It is completely normal to lose up to 100 hairs a day and a proportion of this hair falls out when you shampoo. The act of hair washing simply dislodges hairs that have already become detached from the base of the hair follicle and are ready to fall out. This can also occur with brushing and/or styling your hair. There is this misconception that frequent shampooing causes your hair to fall out so when people begin to shampoo less often, even more ends up in the shower since the hair that would normally come out daily now builds up on the scalp. The simple solution is to shampoo every day and the excess hair in the shower will go away.
