A young Mum’s frightening experience with Alopecia Areata Hair Loss and her journey to Hair Loss Treatments.
Dee a 27 year old mum of two children (4 & 6) was concerned about the bald patches that had appeared 8 month earlier and seemed to be getting worse. Like most busy mums of young children Dee was putting her children first, was run down, had an iron deficiency and in general was not feeling so good. Her natural mother’s instinct kept her going and also pushed the bald patches hidden under her ponytail to the back of her mind and life.
It was only when her mum visited from overseas that Dee was made aware with love and care that to be a good mum you have to look after yourself too… So Dee took some time out with the support of her husband and went with her mum to see Trichologist Carolyn Evans-Frost at Absolique Hair Health Clinic for a diagnosis of her hair loss.
Dee’s Microscopic Diagnosis:
- Current Active Alopecia Areata
- Past Diffuse Hair Damage
- Interrupted Hair Cycle
- Empty Hair Follicles
- Female Pattern Thinning
- Vellus Hairs from DHT
- Scalp Scalp
- Scalp Oil
- Irritated Scalp
This was quite a lot to find all on the one scalp but commonly these things happen gradually, over time and are not noticed until something big goes wrong like a bald patch from Alopecia Areata.
Alopecia Areata of AA is an Autoimmune disorder where the immune system attacks the hair follicles in patches resulting in patches of hair loss. There is normally a period of low immunity leading up to the occurrence of AA as was in Dee’s case with her iron deficiency and general feeling of exhaustion.
On top of AA Dee has been through Post Partum Alopecia twice (post pregnancy hair loss), had hormonal imbalance and was using medication to help, which is related to the early onset of Female Pattern Thinning.
The good news, Dee was encouraged and supported by her entire family to commit to Hair Loss Treatments designed for her individual hair loss problems. Dee diligently stuck to the program set out for her and recovered from all of her hair loss and scalp problems.
Dee shared her Hair Loss Treatments journey of recovery from Alopecia Areata:
“My second appointment this time with Sarah who was just as great as Carolyn. It’s great walking in and being greeted by your name instantly, it makes you feel that you are a valued customer. Sarah checked on my home hair loss treatments progress, went through what we’d do that day, provided friendly conversation as she worked and best of all- she finished exactly on time”.
“Third appointment done and please to advise there’s some growth from the hair loss treatment. Had another great experience with Sarah, friendly, through and always good at explaining anything that I ask of her. Always a good experience with the ladies at Absolique”.
“Fourth appointment done and dusted, really happy with the growth that Sarah has reported. I arrived early and they were able to see me early anyways, bonus! As usual great service love being greeted when I walk through the door, another bonus have lost 6.6 kgs through the supplement/healthy eating plan”.
“Fifth appointment done. Had Lena this time, great personal service , improvements happening in my hair and I’m feeling so much better. Awesome to have a complimentary drink as well, you always feel so special when you come here”.
“Sixth appointment and all is going well. Sarah is always on time and even with the amount of hair she has to get through she’s always on the minute. I leave feeling like a million bucks, not as an alopecia areata sufferer. Hair is growing well it’s money well spent to not only get my hair situation under control but my overall health . I look forward to each visit because I feel one step closer to regaining me”.
“Seventh appointment went well. I had the undivided attention of Sarah as usual and was warmly greeted. It’s such a great feeling when your hair loss treatment staff are just as excited, maybe even more excited with how well your progress is going. It’s so cool to feel really well taken care of by the staff at Absolique. I always leave feeling special not as a hair loss victim”.
“Three to go…feeling confident with my hair growing thanks to the expert support from Sarah at Absolique. I know if I keep this up soon enough I can tie my hair up in confidence that there will be no spots showing”.
