About Hair Loss
There are many reasons why you might lose your hair: accident, surgery, cancer treatments, burns and scalds [including chemical burns], stress, medications or simply natural thinning of hair.
Whatever the reason for your hair loss, this can be a very upsetting and stressful experience.
We need to work out the reason why you are having some hair loss before you can do something about it. Sounds obvious right? But you would be surprised how many things worried folk spend money on, without stopping to work it out.
Ok, so has this been happening slowly or has your hair suddenly started falling out?
If it is sudden, ask yourself these questions:
Are you taking any medications?
Have you had any trauma? This could include a fall, a car crash, a sudden death of someone close (sounds strange doesn’t it, but this really is a thing!) Or has it started to fall out in patches? Is there a rash on your scalp?
If you can say yes to any of these questions you need to get to your doctor and discuss it with him/her first. You may have Alopecia, Psoriasis or a number of other conditions. Stress can cause or aggravate alot of scalp conditions.
Has your hair been thinning slowly in a particular area? eg at the temples or crown?
You may have ‘Male pattern baldness’ ( this is very common even if you are female).
When you have a natural hair loss there are only three choices:
- Learn to live with your new look. You will look older and this might be an advantage.
- Shave it all off (the oldest fashion in history and very chilly but still popular!)
- Come and see me to get some hair replacement and look your age again (or younger!)
Most of all you have lots of options so please do not despair.
When you come to me all servicing is available in the privacy of the hotel venues or in the comfort of your own home.
Wearing a Wig or Toupee now?
Many people claim that they can spot false hair a mile away – the truth is that they will only notice one that draws attention for the wrong reasons. Wigs, toupees and hairpieces are usually spotted because they are too thick, the wrong colour or not grey enough. If you have any of these problems I can help.
I am dedicated to bringing my customers a more natural, modern looking, wig, hairpiece or toupee which is light and comfortable, while reducing detection and any embarrassment.
Together I will help you to choose the right base, colour and style so that you can relax and stop worrying about your hairloss.
It is increasingly popular to opt for hair transplant surgery in all its forms, and there are certainly some amazing results that we see in the media. However, this is hugely expensive and you may well need more surgeries as your hairline continues to recede. I have lots of customers who have transplant scars to hide. A Toupee or hairpiece is a way to disguise the bald area without surgery. Less pain in your scalp and your wallet!
