I’m not going to get too deep in this post…suffice to say, you don’t get waist length hair by going to the hairdresser very often.
That said, I went to the hairdresser yesterday for the first time in over four years.
It has been a tough few years – even the prospect of something simple like going to the hairdresser filled me with anxiety; on top of everything else, I just couldn’t face it.
Anyway – yesterday I bit the bullet, and I had a trim with the very kind and understanding Hannah at Simon Webster Hair in Gardner Street.
The salon is lovely – not at all like a clinical dental surgery as so many hairdressing salons are.
They have a fab website so do take a look if you are in the area and fancy a trim – http://simonwebsterhair.com/
Here is me, the morning after the day before, happy with my hair. I’d had a walk through the wind and rain, so my hair looks a bit messy. Just how I like it!
I’ve noticed that a few readers have found me by searching for ‘telogen effluvium with an oily scalp’.
Firstly, I experienced a significant amount of hair loss last year. I was taking part in a Very Low Calorie Diet (VLCD). When my waist length brown hair started to fall out in HUGE clumps, I looked online for help.
The VLCD salespeople don’t really mention the significant hair loss that the diet will bring. Though, a quick search online shows that I was not alone.
And, if you are experiencing this – yes, my scalp was extremely greasy, too.
Now, a year on, my hair loss has stopped and my hair is, truly, looking better than ever.
I started taking Biotin and I stopped using shampoo.
Biotin helps with hair growth (I now have lovely, long, strong nails, too!). I now use a silicone free conditioner to wash my hair, then condition my hair, then rinse with apple cider vinegar.
This is what I am using – not a terribly expensive regime, but after six months I have really turned my hair loss around. Oh, and I came off the VLCD. A banana for breakfast, a banana for lunch, and a nice dinner when I get home.
Good luck to you – don’t let your hair loss get you down x
I just listened to this – I find David Shayler an extremely interesting person. I’d like to hear more from him, too!
I am SO excited about the upcoming RichPlanet Tour. Richard D Hall is a fascinating speaker. The subjects he addresses are out of this world. This will be my third time to a live show!
Tickets cost a very reasonable £12 each – I say reasonable because Richard is on his feet for a couple of hours, presenting his research. He is travelling far and wide to get this information out. I like to support Richard’s work :)
If you’d like to get your ticket to the most accessible and intellectual Alternative Media event of the year, you can buy your ticket from Richard’s site:
See you in Brighton!!!
