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 Continuing saga of Losing My Hair – Alopecia

The Continuing Saga of Losing My Hair due to Alopecia

I shampooed today only to face this sight again.

Lots of hair on the sink and in my comb, which means that I’m losing it again very quickly.

As my alopecia  (hair loss due to an autoimmune condition)  continues, the bald patches are worse and, while I love my wig from Voguewigs.com, I brought out a wig I’ve had for a couple of years that I bought at a kiosk.

I have been quite ill and maybe this is the result of some very heavy antibiotics. Or maybe stress or ……

I decided to lighten my own hair (no hairdresser would do it given the state of my hair) and bought a box of COLOR OOPS, which is meant to take care of problems encountered with newly dyed hair.

coloroopsI believe I paid about $10.00.

Outside of the smell, it wasn’t that bad although my hair turned a sort of blondish and orangish shade which  I’m going to eventually have to get fixed. It’s very brassy looking. However, it looks fairly decent with an old 3/4 wig I bought a long time ago.

Just as I suspected, the bald spots aren’t quite as bad with lighter hair. It’s so hard when you see yourself one way and then try and take on a different look.

So, here’s that wig that I can still wear.  It’s just basically my bangs and the sides left out.  I thinned the wig out quite a bit as it was too  thick and I was just too uncomfortable with it.

It’s not really that bad; it’s just that I’m pretty sure that in a short time I will need a full wig.

I haven’t kept up with my vitamin cocktails, except for biotin, as given by my neurologist and dermatologist, so maybe I should have stuck with it. However, both my husband and I have been battling health issues and the hair issue has been pretty much on a back burner.

If anyone has any advice on what has worked for them, I’d love to hear it.
