Hair Replacement Without Tears

Androgenetic alopecia (male pattern balding and female pattern balding) is by far the most common cause of hair loss amongst men and a serious problem for many women. There are three important components which are responsible for both female and male balding:
1. A genetic predisposition for balding to occur.
2. Excessive presence of male hormones.
3. Aging - enough time for the first two factors to occur
Both men and women produce male hormones that have a useful role to play in both sexes; but the fact that androgens occur in much higher concentrations in men explains why male pattern baldness is more common than the female balding.
If the problem is treated at the early stages the results and prognosis are good. If the loss is excessive then it is doubtful whether therapy will help
An unfortunate fact is that we do come across people with hair loss problems who we cannot help with normal therapy. In these cases a percentage of people accept their balding condition. But a large percentage have bought hairpieces or toupees to cover the loss.
There appear to be a large percentage of organisations selling these products whom have no ethics whatsoever. They sell cheap products at high prices. Initially the client feels good with their new toupee or wig but soon find that poor quality equals fast deterioration of the product. Colour loss and dry brittle hair and even loss of hair are common complaints. When they complain to the seller they are usually told that any damage to the product was caused by the wearer, not the product and there is no guarantee.
Frank and Joanne are Trichologists, not wig salesmen but we have decided to inaugurate our own first class hair replacement services for men and women at a reasonable cost and a with a firm guarantee of service.
We have no plans to put "Before and after" photographs on our website because photographs can be airbrushed to look better quality than they are.
