Just like a lot of Hair Loss journeys Chris did not turn to Hair Loss Treatments initially when she noticed her hair loss and hair thinning. Her hair problems started showing 5 years ago after diagnosis and treatment for breast cancer.
Chris’s genetic naturally hair was fine hair all her life so when she noticed her hair thinning and a bald patch developing she thought it should get better over time, but it didn’t so she started looking at Hair Loss Treatments. Chris used internet to look for a Hair Specialist (Trichologist) to confirm the condition of her scalp and find out about the lack of hair growth she was experiencing. Chris described her hair history and that she used hot rollers in the past to help add extra body to her naturally fine hair but since the chemo and changes to her hair the rollers were no longer helping. She said her hair was so thin now, has no body whatsoever and seems to get to a length and then stops growing altogether. Chris was also stressed that she could now see her scalp because her hair was see through.
When Chris came to Absolique Hair Health Clinic Trichologist Carolyn Evans-Frost I.A.T. provided diagnosis of the Hair Loss and Hair Thinning using a powerful video microscope a ‘Hair Health Check’.
Hair Health Check provided the following diagnosis of Chris’s Hair Loss and Hair Thinning:
- Diffuse Hair Loss from the past
- Interrupted Hair Cycle and hair cell function
- Dormant Hair Follicles in Terminal Area
- Female Pattern Thinning (FMPT) – DHT (dehydrotestosterone)
- Empty Hair Follicles FMPT
- Vellus Hairs from DHT FMPT
The many problems found explained the extent of Hair Thinning Chris was experiencing, but in actual fact is good news. Why, because she did not have Hair Loss, her hair loss was from the past. Also to be considered Chris has children so has had Post Partum Alopecia (post pregnancy hair loss) diffuse hair loss. Chris’s hair was not growing properly but the empty follicles were still open to be seen with the microscope so were still alive, so there was still a chance for Hair Loss Treatments.
The Hair Loss Treatment Chris embarked on was a 4 month combination correctional program addressing all of the causes and symptoms of Chris’s hair loss and hair thinning problems. We used a combination of in clinic hair loss treatments with homecare hair loss treatments for the duration of the program.
See below for the Before and After Hair Loss Treatments images taken with the microscope at scalp level and also digital images to demonstrate the changes in hair density, volume and overall appearance. We are very happy with Chris’s results and here are some thoughts Chris shared during her journey:
“Hi there girls, thanks for your help yesterday. I have noticed my nails have started to grow! Which hopefully means my hair may be growing too – it’s just too fine to notice as yet”
“Positive comments from Sarah this week. She can see new hair!!!”
“Treatment going well with extra care from Sarah. I look forward to my appointment each week :o))”
“Thanks Sarah for your excellent service this week. Looking forward to some positive growth in the New Year (referring to my hair of course!!) Merry Christmas to you all at Absolique”
“Thanks Sarah for your excellent service again. New growth seems to be progressing well :o))”
“Really happily surprised. Lots of new growth which I never thought could happen!”
“A really positive meeting re my results. I am so happy to continue with my treatment as the results speak for themselves!!”
“So nice to catch up with the girls. Just had a friend from Sydney staying with me and first comment she made was about my hair and how good it looked”
