Hair loss

Hair loss and thinning hair is affecting more and more women and unfortunately research into the causes and cures for it are woefully underfunded. Current overload of our NHS means that doctors often have little time, will or knowledge to help and finding help and advice can be untimely and difficult.

These are the issues salon boss Louise encountered recently when her hair began to fall. “I can honestly say loosing hair was one of the most traumatic things that has ever happened to me. I lost confidence in all aspects of my life, I felt old, ugly and weak and suffered massively with anxiety. I found both NHS and private medical intervention achingly slow, and in some cases not useful at all. I wanted to be proactive and do something, not wait, (as I was advised many times) for another 3 months whilst my hair continued to fall out. I decided to research hair loss, take advice from hair loss experts and follow all my instinctive internal hairdresser common sense, after 6 months my hair started to come back, with that eventually came my confidence and zest for life!”

“Since then I have had a stream of clients that I have advised on hair loss and have seen great results, working alongside medical expertise the advice I have given has made big differences and so importantly given them empowerment through the fact that they are proactively doing something about their condition, personally I found the lack of control over my body the most frustrating element.”

A hair loss consultation with Louise includes a shampoo, treatment and blow-dry, product and nutritional recommendations, plus referrals to specialists.
