Sarah's hair loss story 2 Years on

“I had known for years that I’d have to confront my thinning hair problem at some stage. Having older sisters with various degrees of hair thinning led me to believe that I’d follow suit sooner or later. I took some action after I noticed that I had started to look haggard, much older than I should do. I put it down to having had a few stressful years but then I started to notice my visible scalp more & more.

I decided that I would have to look into what could be done as, although I don’t consider myself to be vain, I had begun to feel less attractive and feminine. I googled ‘hair’ ‘loss’ ‘women’ and as The Hair Centre, in Victoria, looked very credible I looked through their information. I couldn’t help feel sceptical as I’ve not heard about any hair loss treatment that has been proven to work.

At the first consultation I met Gary Heron who took pictures of my hair. With the digital pictures on screen I could see how stressed and thin my hair had become. I still felt sceptical that anything could be done to properly rectify my thinning hair but seeing the extent of the damage made it worth while to try, despite having to borrow the money.

I find the treatment very straight forward and easy to adapt into my daily washing routines. The condition if my hair improved very quickly and I could see and feel some grow back within the first three months. Gary Heron was pleased by how responsive my hair had been to treatment and advised that by adding follicle builder to my treatment programme I should get a full recovery.

I’ve been receiving this treatment for a total of seven months, with three months including the follicle builder, and my hair is dramatically fuller and healthier. Gary Heron tells me that I am half way to a full recovery but I’m already receiving regular compliments about my hair again. I feel much more confident about my appearance and I’m looking forward to the next few months and getting even bigger hair!”

Sarah’s Treatments are:

Vitastim 15% Hair Regrowth Stimulant and Hair Loss Stabiliser:
This stimulant is recommended to help stabilise hair loss and strengthen existing hair. It is a natural hop-based solution that works as a vasodilator to increase blood circulation in the scalp and so enable healthy hair growth. It also contains a multi-vitamin complex to help catalyse the process of conversion of amino acids into keratin hair cells and accelerate growth and diameter of the hair from the dermal papilla.

Biostim 15% Hair Regrowth Stimulant and Hair Loss Stabiliser:
This stimulant contains a very effective natural 5-alpha reductase inhibitor. It reduces the amount of 5-alpha reductase in the scalp and thereby reduces the formation of DHT, stabilising hair loss and encouraging a healthy growth cycle.

THIS COULD BE YOU IN 12 MONTHS

Female Hair Loss Treatment

08.09.2009 in FEMALE HAIR LOSS

Hair loss is a prominent problem and there are in fact several reasons for female hair loss. For which there is also a need of specific female hair loss treatment. In this respect some of the most prominent reasons behind female hair loss include the female body producing more testosterone that happen to be common (women have small amounts in their bodies), or medical conditions involving hormones, in addition to autoimmune diseases or even thyroid disorders. It is also to be remembered, that the basic reasons for female hair loss are different to the causes of men’s hair loss.

ANTI-HAIR LOSS TREATMENT IS SUITABLE FOR BOTH MEN AND WOMEN: EXCLUSIVE TO THE HAIR CENTRE [ LONDON TRICHOLOGISTS ]

VITASTIM

Considerable empirical evidence has supported the oestrogen like activity of hop extract and recent scientific research has confirmed that hop extract shows a potent acceleration on hair growth in cases of androgenic alopecia.

BIOSTIM

Clinical trials of the natural ingredients have established anti-androgen activity and the ability to suppress di-hydroxy testosterone (DHT) formation, beneficial in cases of androgenic alopecia.  The increased dermal papilla activity increases hair cell production and proliferation, increases the number of hairs in the anagen phase and increases the A/T (anagen/telogen ration).

Vitastim and Biostim used together are proven treatments for female-pattern baldness. Most users see improvements, including a halt to the balding or slowing down of it, as well as thicker hair.

In order to treat hair loss effectively we would recommend that you have a diagnosis made as soon as possible by one of our experienced Westminster Trichologists. Stress can be an aggravator in almost all cases of hair loss and an accurate diagnosis will always, at the very least, take some of the stress away from you.

Gary Heron says: “You’ll have access to the most effective treatments available through The Hair Centre and at a fraction of the cost of going to other Private Commercial Clinics and Centres.”

When it’s time to see the Trichologist: If you begin losing hair rapidly, and or are cosmetically concerned about baldness, consult your Trichologist about treatment options. You can receive a free hair loss consultation with a Westminster Trichologist at our Hair Centre.

The point is that you are not getting to the real problem and you should seek specific professional advice from a Westminster Trichologist.

What Causes Thinning Hair In Women?

07.09.2009 in FEMALE HAIR LOSS

In the meantime, don’t be afraid to wash your hair if you’re experiencing hair loss, but do avoid excessive brushing and teasing, both of which can cause additional thinning of the hair. You can also perm or color your hear, but avoid hair extensions or weaves, which put too much pressure on the hair, making it break. Go for hair styles with layers to make your hair look fuller.

There is also such a thing as temporary hair loss due to pregnancy, childbirth, or birth control pills, all of which alter hormone levels; thus, creating temporary hair loss for a period ranging from a month to six months, at which time hormones return to their normal state. If you experience hair loss due to any of these factors, talk to your gynecologist. Likewise, hair loss from cancer treatment can also cause temporary hair loss or baldness, but in nearly all cases, the hair grows back once the chemotherapy stops.

Hair loss in women

07.09.2009 in FEMALE HAIR LOSS

You’ve heard of male pattern baldness, but did you know that 50% of all women experience significant hair loss by the time they reach 50? According to one study, major hair loss increased to 75% for women over age 65.

While harsh chemical treatments like bleaching and perms can contribute to hair loss in women, factors such as stress, poor nutrition, heredity, medical conditions, and chemotherapy are more common factors that cause the hair to fall out, and in some cases, permanently.

So if you’ve noticed more hair in the drain after  shampooing, or some extra strands of hair in your brush, don’t panic. Not all hair loss is permanent. However, female pattern baldness is permanent, and is more prevalent in women as they age.

Here’s what you need to know about female pattern baldness (androgenetic alopecia), which is the most common type of hair loss from the scalp:
Nearly all cases of head-only hair loss in women is androgenetic alopecia, which is when hair follicles become sensitive to the hormone androgen.
Androgenetic alopecia tends to be heredity and can come from either side of the family. However, approximately 12% of women who get it have no trace of androgenetic alopecia in their genetic history.
Alopecia means baldness, although women do not usually go bald to the extent that men with male pattern baldness do. Women typically experience a gradual thinning of their hair instead, either on top or all over their head.
Hair loss from androgenetic alopecia is permanent, and the thinning continues with the aging process.
