Image the panic for Amy when she found out she was getting married and knew that her alopecia would been stared at by all her loved one….. and that it will be pointless spending money on a hair and makeup artist if she doesn't want memories of the day. That was when Amy decided to do some research into her options.
Amy came across a range of hair extensions that not only helped the thickness issue, but also helped the bald scalp problem. “We are seeing more and more young women with thnning hair issues. It use to be a problem with the mature women, but not anymore” Says Caroline from Forever Flawless.
“We help women have one less thing to worry about… Limp, lifeless hair. Whether it is for a job interview, wedding or normal day to day life. We have a range of options for them” Explains Caroline. “I can now have my bridal hair and makeup the way I want” Says Amy Winsor. “I no longer worry about people looking at the top of my head”
Hair extensions can be a lifesaver to anyone wanting volume and/or length. “I have a confidentially agreement with my many of my clients. After working of TV, Fashion Week and commercial jobs I have built up a great clientele who could not live without their hair extensions.” Says Caroline from Forever Flawless. “The extensions I use are called skins, because they are on a skin like base which blends in and sits flat to the head, meaning they can’t be seen on felt. We also have a clip on ‘wig’ like product, which is individually fitted for the person, this is great for women thinning on top”
- More than 70% of models and actresses have hair extensions.
- Good quality hair extensions should last more than 1 year when looked after
- Tape hair extensions are glued in (no matter what), so stay away as they damage the hair.
With some many different brands it is hard to know which hair extension to go for. Beverly May Extensions are very high quality, look natural, are made for fine and normal hair types and don’t damage the hair. Amy’s hair extensions have been coloured to match her real hair and won’t look like extensions. “It is hard to get referrals for new clients, because unless my client admits she has extensions in, no-one realises it’s not her hair!” Explains Caroline.
40% of Alopecia sufferers are women, and this number is growing quickly. There are many reason it can happen including hormone complications.
A more permanent way to help this problem is to have hair replacement, however it is only affective in 2-5% of women with alopecia as in male pattern baldness, the donor sites are called stable sites, which means that the hair and follicles in those areas are not affected by the dihydrotestosterone (DHT)
