Seeking a solution to hair loss led Ousmane to become a certified trichologist, herbalist and Holistic Nutritionist. She started working at a salon in Oakville and eventually opened her own clinic in Hamilton, summer 2015. Located on Hamilton Mountain, Do Grow Hair Clinic specializes in hair loss, hair thinning or any scalp condition. The team consists of doctors, trichologists, nutritionists, nurses and hair replacement specialists. The clinic provides free consultation, prescription for supplement, diet and product to use and follow up every 6weeks. Treatment takes approximately 3-4months.

Dodji states that hair loss is linked to stress, low iron, thyroid, vitamin B12 deficiency, so treatment usually focuses on addressing these deficiencies.

Dodji works directly with clients to diagnose, treat or manage hair and scalp disorders. As a holistic nutritionist, she focuses mostly on natural ingredients, as a remedy to treat hair loss, hair thinning and scalp conditions.

With clients from St. Catherines, GTA, Niagara, Dodji helps clients get their confidence back, educate them on how to take care of their hair and scalp properly.
