How and Why Hair and Scalp issues have a wide reaching effect
Hair is seen as a defining feature for both Men and Women, often referred to as your "crowning glory", it is therefore hardly surprising that when there is a problem with the hair that it has a wide reaching effect from mild concern to anxious, depressive disorders in those who suffer.
Almost all of the patients that I see in my hair clinics have had a hair or scalp issue for at least 6 - 9 months before they find the courage to address it, often this period of time is much longer the average suffering time is between 2 - 5 years. Imagine spending years worrying that you are losing your hair, visiting your GP to find no diagnosis, treatment or empathy, and spending a lonely time trying to put on a brave face.

As a Hairdresser I was really concerned that my hair was so damaged it was breaking off all over and that I would eventually lose it all, probably down to my over straightening, it took some courage to go and seek help, but I am so glad that I did. Eva was really knowledgeable and identified 3 problems, 1 was heat damage, but it wasn’t that causing the hair to break, I had a shedding issue and a scalp problem as well. I have seen Eva over the past 9 months and can’t recommend her services enough, not only is my hair and scalp so much better, I have learnt so much that I wasn’t aware of and can now offer advice to my clients, I don’t hesitate to recommend Eva to anyone who needs advice or help
After being referred to a Dermatologist and being told that I was suffering from female pattern baldness and would lose my hair by my mid 30’s I was distraught! I found Eva from a friend and immediately booked a consultation. Eva took a full history and examined my hair and immediately told me it was not female pattern baldness. I was delighted and so relieved. Eva advised me on shampooing and conditioning and my hair is starting to regrow. She also wrote to my GP asking for blood tests to check for deficiencies and sure enough there was issues which my GP is now addressing. I leapt for joy as I left the consultation and feel I have my life back after seeing Eva and knowing I will not be bald by my mid thirties!
Although my hair loss cannot be stopped, Eva recommended a hair piece that I have had fitted that looks absolutely fabulous, the stylist matched my hair colour and it blends in so naturally, it has given me back my confidence and only I know I am wearing it! Thank you Eva!
My 7 year old son has been suffering from patchy hair loss for over 12 months, I decided to seek specialist advice and found the appointment with Eva very informative and supportive. I now know what is happening with my Sons hair and have a plan of action in place with follow up appointments to check progress.
I was sceptical about seeing another person about my Hair loss and was at a loose end. My GP told me my hair loss was due to my old age and that the blood tests performed all showed everything was fine and I would just lose my hair over time. After seeing Eva she advised that the blood test results were fine for existing but too low for my hair health. She advised on specific hair related supplements along with specialist shampoos and conditioners and after 6 months my hair feels and looks much better. I feel so much better in myself, I am so glad I plucked up the courage to try one last time and went to see Eva.
Although I am 76 I was very concerned that I was losing my hair, after discussing with my GP I decided to see a Trichologist and was recommended to visit Eva. After a thorough consultation and examination Eva was able to fully explain what was happening with my hair and reassured me that I was not going to lose it. Eva wrote to my GP requesting blood tests which have been done and I am now taking supplements to address the deficiencies identified by these blood tests, my GP was really delighted and best of all my hair has stopped shedding, don’t keep waiting and worrying, get your hair and scalp checked, it really is worth it.
I have seen many people with regards to my hair loss, including Dermatologists, Trichologists and my GP, it wasn’t until I saw Eva that I found somebody who explained to me what the issues were in a way that I understood, what was causing them and how we could manage them to reduce the hair loss and give me back my confidence, I would thoroughly recommend anyone with the slightest Hair issue to consult Eva she has made such a difference to me.
I met Eva by chance when she came into my shop, I have suffered with an itchy scaly scalp for the best part of 30 years and have found washing and drying my hair just a nightmare I have tried many different remedies but have had no success. Eva was very professional and took a full history and performed an in depth examination and explained that I was suffering from Seborrhoeic eczema of the scalp. Scalp treatments from Eva and prescribed shampoos for home use, mean that I can now wash and dry my hair without any of my previous problems, no one had ever explained to me what was happening on my scalp and all previous attempts with prescription creams had been to no avail. I would readily recommend Eva if you are at all concerned about your hair or scalp.
