In 1999 I made an appointment to see my doctor on the NHS 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 on the NHS 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 on the NHS 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 no thanks to the NHS.
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.
