Hair Loss? My Story And Tips and Tricks

Last year, in June I started to lose my hair. I wrote about my journey here. Tons of strands would come out when I washed, brushed and styled it. It was a really upsetting time.

I was told two of the reasons why my hair had started to fall out, one, being anaemic and two, post operation recovery for my major endometriosis op where I had to have a stoma.

I felt so self conscious, my once full thick fringe had really thinned out and I ‘had’ to wear headbands and hats all the time to cover up. This made me feel better.

Since then, I’ve trialled loads of shampoos, treatments and supplements and wanted to share what’s worked for me. My hair isn’t back to ‘normal’, I’ve got a long way to go before it fully grows back. However, these are the products that have helped me thicken my hair and started growing back at the roots.

Mayraki Scalp Purifying & Anti Ageing Scalp Cleanser (gifted)

What I love about the Mayraki products are that they are 100% vegan and they work wonders on your hair! It’s early days and I’ve only been trialling this product for a few weeks, however, I must say I’m rather impressed! Just look at the difference in the photos.

Mayraki Anti Hair Loss and Hair Growth Shampoo (gifted)

I’ve been really enjoying using the anti hair loss and hair growth shampoo. Created with commiphora erythaea oil (never heard of this until recently, but reduces hair loss and promotes alertness), sunflower extract, olea europea oil, almond oil and caster seed oil which improves hair growth.

Mayraki Silky Smooth Protein Proactive Hair Treatment (gifted)

The stand out product from the range for me has to be the silky smooth protein proactive hair treatment. I left this on for thirty minutes then rinsed and used the anti-hair loss kit afterwards. The results are amazing! My hair feels silky soft and looks so smooth – look at the picture above!

Olaplex No.3 Treatment

Olaplex is hands down amazing! I really notice a difference in my hair when I use it. Although it’s pricey, it’s well worth the money! It’s made my roots a lot stronger!

Viviscal Supplements

I trialled these for five months and I have to say they are amazing! They’ve really helped thicken and grow my hair back at the roots.

Nordic Supplements

I took these in June, really liked them, then started taking them in January again. It’s hard to tell whether they are working but the gummies have biotin and zinc in the formula and those are great ingredients for growing your hair back.

Biotin Supplements

I’ve only just started taking these in February, so it’s early days to say if they are doing anything! BUT, Biotin is great for growing thick hair, so I feel hopeful that they will help grow my hair back.

So, that’s it! The few WOW products that have really helped me and my hair. My hair stopped falling out as soon as I started taking supplements. The hair treatments and shampoo are also musts in my routine.

I only wash my hair once or twice a week, so, it’s important to do a treatment once a week too. It will really nourish your hair and strengthen your roots. Olaplex No.3 or Mayraki Silky Smooth Protein Proactive treatments are great. You really can’t go wrong!

    Oh zoey I totally feel your pain! In late 2018 I lost a large amount of my hair too, and although it’s now growing back it’s not all the same length so I have these funny looking choppy layers throughout to make it look like some kind of style 😂 I like the sound of the supplements though, really helping from within!x
