Black male hair loss treated

21.09.2009 in BLACK AFRO-CARIBBEAN HAIR LOSS, HAIR LOSS [ PHOTOS ] TREATED

Thinning hair and baldness usually results from an inherited tendency that manifests itself as one grows older. 

The most common cause of hair loss in men is male pattern hair loss [androgenetic alopecia]. It is an inherited tendency that is almost universal amongst white men, although some seem to develop the problem earlier than others. Recent surveys have suggested that 30 per cent of men have some pattern baldness by the age of 30 years and 50 per cent have it by the age of 50. Some lose their hair quite quickly, but the average man takes 15 to 20 years to go bald. Black men are a lot less likely to bald prematurely.

The best advice would be to discuss this problem with your trichologist and make him or her aware of how desperate you’re feeling about your hair loss.

Peter's hair loss story

18.09.2009 in HAIR LOSS [ PHOTOS ] TREATED, MALE HAIR LOSS

ppa_21

In my mid-twenties I became concerned with the amount of hair I was shedding in the shower; in bed; at my desk etc. I made some enquiries and had a few consultations. I decided to go with the Hair Centre. They are a small friendly team, with a flexible approach to making appointments, working around busy lifestyles.

Mixing a family history of Male Pattern Baldness with day to day stress and a general dryness to my hair, I was put on a course of treatment.

Within a few months the shedding had dramatically decreased, re-growth had started to take affect, and the hair was looking stronger and healthier. 4 yrs on, there has been substantial re-growth my hair is tighter, thicker and I am very happy!

Tom's hair loss story

18.09.2009 in HAIR LOSS [ PHOTOS ] TREATED, MALE HAIR LOSS

photo331.jpgI started treatment in October 2005 after the fact that I was losing my hair was brought to my attention by someone that would probably have loved to have  seen me go bald. It seems that the people that do care about you probably have noticed that you’re losing your hair, but are afraid to bring up the subject. After realising that indeed I was receding, I began researching as to how, or if I could rectify the problem. I was pretty clueless in terms of treatment procedures but was hoping that the Elton John option was a thing of the past! I had a few consultations before attending the Westminster Practice. The previous clinics had all told me that there was a strong chance that I would recover and get a full head of hair again. At the Westminster practice I was told that if I did treatment right, I would have my hair back again. Easy choice in the end.

photo575.jpgSo I started a course of treatment for 12 months combining a morning and evening massaging of treatments into the hair plus specialist shampoo and conditioner. I began using the treatments, kept to the routines as set out by Gary and hoped that soon when the wind blew I wouldn’t be feeling that bald patch that I had previously ignored! After a while there was a definite sign of improvement and I could see that the treatments were having an effect. I went for monthly check ups to monitor the progress and it was good to see the difference from month to month. I kept up the treatment for the 12 months and then decided to extend the course for another 6 months to guarantee that I would get all my hair back. During the treatment Gary asked to bring pictures in of myself to see when the receding had started. He identified that I had been losing my hair since the age of seventeen. That dispelled the myth that baldness only happened to the over 30’s!

photo-0009.jpgAfter the initial 12 month period had passed I had definitely seen a vast improvement in the condition of my hair. The hairline was no longer receding, it was regaining a lot of its thickness and the colour had changed. Unfortunately, I then took it upon myself to think that I had crossed the line and that I didn’t need to continue the treatment so vigorously. From using it day and night I began to only use it once or twice a week. I continued my monthly check ups and there were no visible differences at first, but when I went for a check up in January 2007 the signs of my negligence were apparent. The hair had stopped growing again and it was getting worse. I had come to a point where I thought that I didn’t need to use the treatment as I had been doing before. However, my laziness had caught up with me and I now realised that to fully recover I needed to go back to the routine of day and night treatment and not take my recovery for granted.

Thankfully after realising the error of my ways, I now can see a vast improvement again and am closer to the finishing line once more. I have a couple of months left and then I can go onto stabilizers. No magic potions, no quick solutions, just tried and trusted treatment. It works-providing you work at the treatment.

HERE I AM 4 YEARS LATER STILL WITH A FULL HEAD OF HAIR, THANKS GARY.

Sarah's hair loss story 2 Years on

17.09.2009 in FEMALE HAIR LOSS, HAIR LOSS [ PHOTOS ] TREATED
   

 

“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

Hair loss treatments

11.09.2009 in HAIR LOSS PRODUCTS AND TREATMENTS, HAIR LOSS [ PHOTOS ] TREATED

Vitastim and Biostim used together are proven treatments for both male and 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.
