The BioRepair-8 Anti-Aging Scalp & Hair System; My Journey is Beginning

I Was Lucky Enough to be Sent the BioRepair – 8 Anti-Aging Scalp & Hair System .

August is National Hair Loss Awareness Month.

Perfect! A whole month devoted to making those of us with thinning hair become even more depressed.

MY HAIR SITUATION

As you know, if you’ve been keeping up with my blog, I suffer from alopecia (See My alopecia), which is an autoimmune disease that mistakenly attacks the follicles of your hair, causing anything from thinning hair to complete loss of all body hair.

My hair loss is a severe loss in the crown of my head and extreme thinning all over.

MY SAVING GRACE?

However, possible help has arrived in the form of an e-mail about this new vegan hair care 3-step system that specifically targets thinning hair.

Naturally, I was all over it. (I’m on several alopecia boards and would love to let them know of a system that actually works).

I wrote back and asked if I could try out their products and keep a journal with pictures of my progress for my readers and my alopecia friends on the Boards.

Within a few days, after some very nice words from a representative of the company, I received this lovely package:SONY DSC

THE BIOREPAIR-8 ANTI-AGING SCALP AND HAIR SYSTEM

An Update on My Alopecia Progress Over the Year

I Can’t Believe that It’s Been A Year Since I started my Alopecia Blog.

I’m not sure if you’ve followed my story, however, it began when I realized after taking a certain medication that my already-thin hair was not only thinning, but falling out in clumps.

My husband was getting all my hair out of the shower with tweezers.

I first just cut it myself because I was sick of seeing hair all over the place.

I wanted Michelle Obama’s hairstyle so I started off like this:

myalopecia1Within a few months my hair continued to fall out and, eventually, it got to this:

myalopecia2

I then had to cut even more off until it was as short as a buy’s hair.

The alopecia seemed to taper off at this point:

This is a picture I took today:

Here is my regimen:

***Remember! I am not a physician and I am not responsible for your reactions to these items I’m using. Especially if you are a woman who is planning to get pregnant, is pregnant or is nursing, some of these pills are not to be used.

After that disclaimer, here is what I’ve been using:

1)  Viviscal 2 pills a day am and pm

2)  Biotin – 2X a day

3)  Rogaine foam 2X a day

4)  Multivitamin

5)  Vitamin D

I’ve been on this regimen for about 4 months. I’ve just taken ideas from other sites and incorporated them into my own.

Have my fellow alopecians found something great that has worked for them?

Thanks,

Tovah
