10 Years Younger - Bald Lady

Postby Hols969 » Tue Jun 17, 2008 8:57 pm

Did anyone see the lady on it tonight who was very very thin hair wise on top and the final look - god it was amazing. Bet it wasnt cheap though, I'll see what I can find on the website to see if they have a link to the people that did it as it was so good and realistic.

Thanks for mentioning this, Holly - I think ScaredSally (and maybe others off here) have been to Lucinda Ellery and not been all that impressed, but the theory behind the hair replacement looks worth trying. My hair's probably worse than the woman's on 10 Years Younger, and I'm only 33! It's been said before, but hairloss is definitely the worst PCOS symptom for me. :evil:
Daft southerner up north; age: 38; diagnosed with PCOS at 19, but unaware of the full significance until the last few years - most notably when my hair began thinning at 27! Now trying to help symptoms by using an anti-candida diet.

Yup Lucinda Ellery ! I wouldnt personally go there I have seen two of her peices that were removed by other hair replacement specialists and they are bulky and heavy and the hair quality is poor .. I went there and was charged £50 for a consultation I found her very odd indeed and she dismissed some of my worries .

THere are some far better and more compassionate hair replacemet places in UK such as Bloomsbury and Wattz International where I go

Oh ok, did look good so thats a shame. I would agree that hair loss is the worst side effect, why does it grow on your chin but not on your head - so frustrating.

Hey Holly and others,

I had my hair extensions re-done from Lucindas earlier this week - that's about the only thing i would get done from there.

Given my hair is progressively getting thinner month on month, i was still told that i dont need a hair replacement system, despite the extension connections visibly showing as i have zero thick hair to conceal them.

I spoke about the hair integration system and the cost is approx £3,000. Like Sally said above, i have seen and heard that her systems arent the best of qualities. Ok so she does famous folks hair and has a lush layout of a salon, but places like Bloomsbury Wigs are far better.

Gosh, Graham at BW's should give me a free system for the constant praise i do of his wig salon! lol.

I hope you're all well ladies. I'm only a few months away from the reality of wearing a topper. The other day at work someone asked me "you've got a fly in your hair?", to which i said no...that's a bloody hair extension dammit! Ugh! This hair loss sucks.

I saw this on tv last week and was sooo excited. I'm really disappointed now to hear that she may not be as good as she looked.
Could anyone elaborate why she's not good? And recommend somewhere else that is good.
I'm also interested to know if anyone has had any luck with NHS funding for hair replacement/extensions.
My GP is usually just like 'get over it' when I tell him that my hair loss really depresses me

hair integration as on 10ys younger

Postby shazzy42 » Sat Jul 26, 2008 3:25 pm

Hi, I have had pcos for the last 20 years initially diagnosed when I was trying to get pregnant and started with the usual symptoms, weight gain, irregular if any periods and thinning hair. Luckily I now have a healthy 15 year old son but of all my symptoms my hair upset me the most, going from very thick long hair to resorting to shorter styles in an effort to make it look thicker and trying all the usual things to try to disguise it, shampoos, nanogen fibres, the best i found was dermmatch and was quite happy with this thinking it was the best thing ever until I saw the lady on 10 years younger! My hair was a bit thicker than her, so I did some research, I did email Lucinda Elleray but didnt bother to ring them as the price and distance just seemed out of my reach. Then I discovered a salon in manchester called Hair solved which do the same thing for around £1000+ eventually I discovered a salon in liverpool which is literally ten minutes in the car for me and I had a consultation, Last week I had my volumiser system fitted :D it took from 9.30am until 6pm in the evening... and cost £1200 the result is fantastic, it looks like natural hair! My husband couldnt believe it. It does feel a bit strange and heavy at first but you get used to it and today I went back for my first salon wash and blow dry. Now I can finally wear my hair up or in a ponytail again and not have to worry about people staring at my hair or the wind or rain etc. If anyone is considering having this done, I know its expensive and the maintainance is about £75 - £100 every six weeks maybe less depending on the time it takes to tighten up the extenssions but its the best thing i have done and wish I had discovered it years ago :D

Evening all, first time poster here! I dont suffer from PCOS but was looking things up as I think my 23 year old niece may have it.

The problem I have is that Im 30 yrs old and my hair is so very thin. More so recently Im beginning to bald at the front....Ive been to the Dr and there is nothing medically wrong but its getting me down. Went out on a night out at the weekend, ended up in a hot club and pics were taken. Anyway I hate the pics of me...I look terrible...with thin hair and 2 almost bald spots. :oops:

I was thinking of getting this volumising system...can anyone recommend anyone in the London area, I was going to look into Lucinda Ellery but not so sure now!

Your help is so very much needed! :cry:

Thanks

I would avoid Lucinda Ellery personally having been there .. I currently go to a place in Kent www.wattzinternational.co.uk and for teh future I am looking into Graham at www.bloomsburywigs.com he is very friendly and helpful.

Ten Years Younger - Bald Lady

Postby Leona Macleod » Fri Aug 01, 2008 3:17 pm

I've been a client at Lucinda Ellery for some time now, and I find the whole team absolutely brilliant. To answer "cburd" above, Lucinda Ellery DO do NHS patients already. At my last visit I got chatting to the lady sat alongside me, and she happened to be an NHS referral, that's how I found out. I'm now applying to my local GP to help me with funding too. It is expensive it's true, but to me it's worth every penny, but obviously if I can get the NHS to support me that'd be even better!! Every PCT has its own funds, so it can sometimes be not so much about what your problem is but more just what funds are available at your local PCT and how they're happy to allocate them.

I found that my consultation at Lucinda's made me feel really at ease with what would happen next, and ok, when you first get the Intralace system fitted it does feel a bit unusual for a day or two while you get used to it, but I have this fabulous head of hair now. I'm a regular swimmer along with the rest of my family, so to find that I can swim and shower in it has just made me feel so normal again. I've tried wigs, but obviously anything that comes off just doesn't stand comparison. Apart from my family and close friends in the know, no one has any idea that this is not my own hair. Personally, I can't recommend Lucinda's studio highly enough!

hi guys first time poster here!

I’m only 28 and suffering from thinning hair feel so depressed :( I’m getting married next year and was looking at getting a hair system I don’t want to look back at my photos from my big day and just cry at my receding hair line! Thought I would start doing my research before I take the leap.

Just hoping for some advice.

SHAZZY42 You seem really happy with your system can I just ask the name of the place you went to in Liverpool?

SCAREDSALLY can I just ask what you think of wattz international? Would you recommend it?

Any general information from anyone else would be greatly appreciated i.e does the system hurt when its in? some people have said it feels like tight braids which pull on your scalp… can you wear your hair in different styles with the mesh systems?

Thank you in advance for any help anyone can give me . . nicky x x
