What happens when Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia goes undiagnosed

5/20/2024
What happens when Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia goes undiagnosed Lesley Rutter lives in Newcastle, around 10 years ago, at the age of 40, she began to notice severe hair shedding. The front of her hair began to be itchy, her hair follicles became raised & inflamed, and her hairline began to recede away. She went to the doctor, and he told her it was just stress related,, and it would go away on its own. She returned to various doctors over a period of six years, where she was repeatedly sent away and told that it was just because of stress. She was left undiagnosed, not knowing where to turn or what she could do to treat her condition. She had bouts of severe shedding, including loss of eyebrows and lashes, which means her eyes are constantly itchy. Eventually, a nurse noticed that her confidence was being severely affected, and that this was having an impact on her life, and encouraged her to advocate for herself and demand to be referred for treatment. This led to her being sent to a dermatologist, who finally diagnosed her with FFA. By this time, however, she had lost around two inches of her hairline, and was shocked to discover that this would not be reversible. She now has a treatment plan, and has made connections with others, who can understand what she is going through, which she says has made a huge difference.

Dr Jemma Boyle has has alopecia since she was 10 years old, which began as small bald patches which she says could be easily hidden. By her late teens, it began to get worse & more obvious. At the age of 30, she first lost all of her hair. This then grew back, then she lost it again. She is a Doctor who specialises in breast surgery & cancer research, who has been using JAK inhibitors to treat her own condition. Dr Boyle shares how losing her hair caused her to stop & put more time into looking after herself better; she began running, journaling, eating better and even stopped drinking alcohol for a year. She is one of only 10% of those with alopecia areata who has experienced spontaneous regrowth after losing all their hair. The JAK inhibitor Ritlecitinib has recently been approved on the NHS, and Jemma describes how it works, and how it can be used to treat hair loss.

The facts about scalp cooling

4/29/2024
The facts about scalp cooling Claire Paxman, the brand ambassador & Director of global education for Paxman scalp cooling, the global leader in scalp cooling. Claire shares how it was her Mum having breast cancer in the 90's that first made her aware of scalp cooling, when she tried the cold cap. Her Mum went on to lose her battle with cancer at just 44. She was 14 when she had to shave all her Mum's hair off, which was a devastating experience for her. Her Grandfather invented the first ice bank cooler for beer, and they began to use their knowledge of cooling systems to develop a better scalp cooling system which is a medical device. Vasoconstriction can have a great effect on how much hair is lost during chemotherapy treatment, and also how fast it will grow back. Claire shares how knowledge & education around the use of the cold cap is vital, and is working hard to ensure that the correct information is given and available to hospitals and patients.

Persistent Chemotherapy Induced Alopecia

2/19/2024
Persistent Chemotherapy Induced Alopecia Jo had chemotherapy and radiotherapy in 2017, following breast cancer. She has had a double mastectomy and a hysterectomy, which plunged her into medically induced menopause. She also lost her hair due to the treatment. She had been advised that this would probably happen, but was given the impression that it would grow back. She was not really given any information or advice regarding the cold cap, and after treatment, her hair didn't really start to grow back. Jo sought help from her doctors, dermatologist and even a trichologist. She tried minoxidil, which yielded no results, and eventually was advised that her hair follicles seemed damaged, and after seven years, her hair has never fully grown back. It wasn't until she spoke to a scalp cooling expert that she heard the term Persistent Chemotherapy Induced Alopecia, and found out how common it is. Jo set up her instagram account 'Titless Wonder' to help to spread awareness around breast cancer, the options available, and the reality of the possible side effects of treatment, such as PCIA. She is determined to ensure that people know all the information to be able to make a fully informed decision on their treatment plan.

Why your mindset is so important

2/12/2024
Why your mindset is so important Belinda Hillman says she is very aware of what it is like to feel 'less than', describing herself as a bit of a lost teen who was living in a bedsit at the age of just 16. The hairdressing industry helped her to turn her life around, going from a council estate to working on a cruise ship and travelling the world. She then went on to own a salon, but felt that she needed more help with her own mental health so as not to feel isolated. She then created the brand Belinda Mindset, where she encourages people to focus on what they are good at. She provides education through her HABIA accredited mindset course, sharing that she likes to leave a lasting impression on her learners and add value by paying attention to the small details. Her aim is to inspire people, even if it is just for one moment in time. She has created six different packs of cards to provide guidance for motivation and mindset. Belinda is currently a part of the VTCT collective tour, and is also offering education for Wella professionals.

Why consistent habits and the right advice are paramount to regaining healthy hair. Karis is 35 and lives in Kent. She began experiencing issues with her hair three years ago, when she had noticeable shedding which led to visible thinning. She describes her life at the time as very stressful and difficult, a relationship breaking down and facing many challenges led to her not taking care of herself as well as she could have. She began to notice a large amount of hair in her brush and in the shower. She investigated all the possible causes of her hair loss including traction alopecia and chemical/ heat damage. Karis stresses the importance of using good quality products, and recognises their value. She believes that consistency is key when it comes to hair health. Her hair was her crown, and losing that has had an impact on her confidence. She says 'you can't put a price on the right advice' as we talk about being able to access and interpret information such as blood tests to accurately determine any deficiencies she has. Sharing this information with Karis meant we could look at the many different supplements she had bought, versus what she actually needed to make a difference.

Does sugar have an impact on hair loss?

1/8/2024
David Barreto began to notice is hair thinning at the age of just 20, and by the time he was 22, this had began to be quite noticeable. He tried various treatments, but did not see any markable improvement. This led him to look into genetic hair loss, where he found that there has been a lot of research done that hadn't been put into use in commercial products. He wanted to bridge the gap between science and commercial products. He wanted to create products that used natural solutions, adding compounds found in nature, rather than chemicals or synthetic drugs to treat hair loss, as he found that compliance can be an issue with some medical alternatives, along with the health warnings and side effects putting people off or making them a non- viable option. He then began to create System K11, a science-led company, of which he is co-founder. Looking at the driving forces behind genetic hair loss, he found studies that showed a correlation to the rate of hair loss and diet, researching into sugary drinks and type 2 diabetes as examples of how a dysregulated metabolism can have an effect on the mitochondrial rate of respiration which limits the amount of energy the hair follicles gain from the glycogen stores around the hair follicles.
