Understanding Alopecia

Alopecia can cause different types of hair loss and not everyone loses all of their hair. Hair often grows back but may fall out again and sometimes the hair loss lasts for many years or may grow back relatively quickly.

Alopecia occurs when the immune system attacks the hair follicles (the structures that contain the roots of the hair), causing hair loss. This condition most often occurs in otherwise healthy people. Even so the NHS estimate around 8 million women in the UK experience some form of hair loss medically known as Alopecia.

There are seven types of Alopecia:

Alopecia Totalis
Alopecia Universalis
Androgenetic Alopecia
Alopecia Areata
Diffuse Alopecia
Postpartum Alopecia
Traction Alopecia

We understand that thinning hair and hair loss can devastate your self-esteem. But there are steps you can take to combat the emotional impact of hair loss and take control again. Our experienced and sympathetic team have helped thousands of women with all types of Alopecia and we can help you.

Alopecia Areata Katie, 28

“It started as a small bald spot. Alopecia doesn’t run in my family and if I look back at pictures, I had really long thick hair. It was a big shock. I lost a lot of hair on the top of my head. It was getting hard to hide and made me feel self-conscious. If the wind blew, you could see it.”

“I had my system fitted in May 2019. Hair Solved have given me confidence. I feel so much better about myself and would 100% recommend it to anyone with Alopecia.”

Our Natural and Versatile Solution

“I’ve had Alopecia for 9 years and finally feel as if I never lost my hair. It is by far the most natural looking thing I have had and made me feel feminine again.”Joanne, Hair Solved London Client.

The unique design of the Enhancer System means it is suitable for all types of Alopecia and the various levels of hair loss that it can cause. We have a variety of methods and products that are adaptable to each client. We can offer a quick fix solution using our touch up powders, hair-extensions to help with thinning hair, or a bespoke integrated hair system, which are all fully adaptable to deal with each client’s hair loss requirements.

We understand that an Alopecia diagnosis can often see a Client’s hair improve or regress with no real continuity, making it even more difficult to manage.

“I know that it’s not a life-threatening condition, but it feels like you’re losing part of your womanhood. I didn’t want to go out, I didn’t want anyone to see me. It made me so depressed.”

“Now when I put my make up on, get dressed up and fix my hair, I feel like myself again. In fact people often tell me that I look ten years younger!”
