After spending over a year in hospital with ‘gastro issues’ and a history of PCOS, ill health took its toll on Emma’s hair.
This was quite devastating for her because she’d always had thick hair and it really affected her confidence.
When Emma had her Enhancer System fitted, she wrote a wonderful review about how the system had made such a difference to her life.
She then kindly offered to do a Q&A so that other women could read about the transformational impact of the system.
Our team at Hair Solved Manchester are so grateful to Emma for doing this and we know you will find her story utterly inspiring.
Thank you Emma.
Q1. How long have you been a Hair Solved client?
I first came to Hair Solved in September 2023.
Q2. Did you try any other solutions before you went to Hair Solved?
I tried clip in extensions which helped with thickness but not where my hair had receded, and this was my biggest insecurity.
Q3. How did you find Hair Solved?
I looked online initially for a wig and then I found you guys and thought it was so clever and natural what you do; so, decided to book a consultation.
Q4. What condition caused your hair loss?
I’ve been really poorly with gastro issues and spent over a year in hospital so lost a lot of hair due to malnutrition, but I also have PCOS which causes male patterned baldness.
Q5. Did it affect your daily life?
Massively! I used to have beautiful thick hair and then to go to barely anything was heartbreaking. It massively knocked my confidence to the point where I wouldn’t want to leave the house and was extremely self-conscious about it.
If I went out, I would feel like people were looking at it and it just made me really anxious.
Q6. How long have you had the condition?
I have had gastro problems for 3 years and I was diagnosed with PCOS when I was 15.
Q7. How did your hair loss make you feel when it first happened?
Sick to my stomach!
It was the one thing that I was able to style to make me feel ‘nice’.
Q8. Did people react differently to you when you lost your hair? If so, did this make you feel anxious?
My family would comment about it and that we needed to do something about it which made me more anxious because it must have been bad for them to say that.
Q9. Do you think there is a stigma attached to female hair loss?
I do. I don’t think there’s a lot of knowledge about companies like Hair Solved and what you can offer. They are life changing solutions for us.
When I’ve spoken to my consultants about it and how it’s affecting me all I get is make sure you’re taking your multivitamins or it’s because of your condition.
This doesn’t fix my problem! They need to know there are options out there for us and that we don’t have to live like this.
Q10. How does the Hair Solved Enhancer System make you feel?
I feel like a brand-new person. Because of my debilitating conditions I’ve not been able to do much over the last few years, but the system makes me feel like I’ve got a bit of my old self back. I feel like a new woman and it’s so nice to be able to style my hair and put some make up on. It’s given me a reason to get up and get ready and I’m not as anxious about leaving the house or going out to places anymore.
Q11. One lady said it had “changed her life” – can you identify with this? 100% - I think it’s actually saved my life!
Q12. Do you feel more attractive and outgoing now that you have the system?
I really do and people comment all the time about how lovely and amazing I look!
Q13. Are there things you do now that you didn’t do before i.e., go to the gym, go swimming etc.?
Not yet but I’ve booked a holiday and I’m so excited to be able to go swimming etc.
Q14. What do you like about the system? For example, does it feel quite natural?
I thought it would feel like I’m wearing a wig but honestly, I don’t feel it at all – I actually forget all the time that I have a system in. It’s amazing! I’ve just been to get it adjusted and it felt so nice being tightened – it was like a head massage.
