I was a qualified staff nurse of 14 years. I established Hairflair Designs in response to my experience as a staff nurse and my own personal struggle with hair loss.
I am a mother of three, 46years old and I started to lose my hair following the birth of my last child 14 years ago. Every six months I shed handfuls of hair over periods of approximately three months.
Eventually, after numerous trips to see my GP, I was referred to a dermatologist. Further blood tests and investigations were performed prior to being diagnosed with chronic telogen effluvium. It’s a form of non-scarring alopecia which causes diffused hair loss.
My dermatologist felt this condition was due to the pregnancy and was exacerbated by an overactive thyroid and low ferritin (iron) level.
