In 1999 I made an appointment to see my doctor because I had discovered a couple of bald patches at back of my head right on the hair line, they were about 2 to 3 inches in diameter, I was panic stricken and didn’t know what to do. The growth rate of my hair had also slowed down considerably. My doctor diagnosed that I had alopecia areata and prescribed a steroid cream. I was told that my condition was stress related.
After having used the cream for sometime my condition worsened with the largest patch getting larger and starting to meet up with 2 new patches that I had not had before, these other patches appeared behind each of my ears. I had been using the cream diligently for 6 months. Frighteningly, the only other alternative treatment my doctor could offer me was steroid injections into the patches on my scalp, which I refused.
Meanwhile, a friend of mine had told me about this fabulous new website called The Hair Centre. Being a naturally suspicious person this prompted me to telephone them for advice, as by now I was beginning to get worse and starting to feel desperately depressed as I could see my appearance deteriorating almost daily. I spoke to this really helpful trichologist, who informed me that the cream prescribed by my doctor was completely useless and would probably cause further damage because it was a strong and aggressive steroid.
After a long conversation about my condition the trichologist advised me to use the Vitastim hair re-growth stimulant in conjunction with the No.1 shampoo and No.5 conditioner. I started to use the stimulant twice a day at home. I also used the No.1 specially formulated shampoo for hair loss and No.5 intensive hair recovery conditioner three times a week as directed. My hair loss slowed up and stopped almost immediately (3 to 4 months) and the condition of my hair and scalp had vastly improved.
I am delighted to say that 12 months on I have fully recovered. Although, it has taken a long time (12 months) I am extremely pleased with the results. My hair is growing at its usual rate, all of the patches I had, have completely re-grown and my hair feels normal again. I have no hesitation in recommending The Hair Centre trichologically balanced treatments and shampoo products, really are first class - they are the best.
