The Drs: Achieve Thicker Braids
The Doctors shared that no one wants their hair to be super thin, so in order to make your thin hair look fat, they welcomed celebrity hair stylist Sarah Potempa. Sarah explained that celebrities love to wear braids, but their braids always look thick and full, rather than limp and lifeless. In order to make a braid look thicker, Sarah suggested a technique called “pancaking,” where you pull on the hair of the braid in each loop to add volume.
The Drs: Wavy Hair Overnight
If you’re not in the mood to try some pancakes, you may want to try some donuts. What Sarah was referring to was putting your hair up in buns (donuts) on the top of your head before going to bed, while it’s still damp. Add a little mousse and use large 2-inch bobby pins to twist your hair and then pin it up. When you wake up, you should have a great beach-y wave. The more buns you use, the more curls you’ll have.
To get rid of some of the frizz, spray a flexible hair spray on your brush before running it through your waves.
The Drs: Fuller Ponytail
To make your ponytail look fuller, actually create two ponytails, one on top of the other. Waterfall the top one over the other, and then curl the hair in two different directions to add width to the hair.
The Drs: Broken Collarbone
The Doctors then shared that Karina was an active mom. She challenged herself to compete in a triathlon, but one training session changed everything. She was training for the Half Iron Man when she was hit by a car while riding her bike and broke her collarbone.
Her doctors suggested she let it heal naturally, but two months later she was still in a lot of pain. They took x-rays again and saw that the bones were trying to come together crooked. She has a lot of tissue damage, so just touching the area is painful. She was also told not to participate in the sports she loves, which has really affected her.
The Drs: New Procedure For Clavicle Fractures
Dr Carl Basamania explained that the problem with clavicle fractures is that they have no way of keeping them where they belong, because they can’t exactly cast it. For years, the only treatment for a fractured clavicle was a highly invasive surgery with only a 70% success rate. But Dr Basamania helped develop a new, minimally invasive technique that uses a special pin and the results are 100% effective.
During the surgery it was discovered that Karina had some muscle trapped in between in the bone, which could have been causing a lot of her pain. They had to basically re-fracture the bone and then open it up in order to insert the pin.

Karina joined The Doctors and said she was feeling wonderful and can raise her arms again. Dr Basamania explained that the other option would be to open it up and use plates and screws to put the clavicle back together. His procedure uses a pin within the bone that strengthens it and allows the fracture to heal.
