"Your system works when nothing else does"
"This was my first time trying the Stimulair system, but been thinking about buying for a month. I'm just about
47 years young. I've always had thicker hair that was long and straight. And then I had 4 kids (my youngest is now 12).
Each pregnancy I'd see a lot of postpartum hair loss but it would always regrow, though never quite back to
normal. Now my mother and sisters have thinner hair than me, but not noticeably thinner.
I never blow dried my hair or curled it, and over the last couple years I have used color, mostly to
cover up some gray hairs. My usual hair loss pattern was that longer hairs would shed &
would be very noticeable in the shower drain, sink, on clothes, etc. It didn't bother me much
and seemed normal overthe years.
Then around eight months ago I noticed that my shorter hairs were shedding for the first time.
Now, most of the shedding is hairs that are just a few inches long, and not mostly the longer hairs.
Now here's the interesting part. When I looked closely at the shorter hairs I was shedding, they always
had the bulb at the end. Also I began noticing more fine, hairline-like hairs falling out.
I wash my hair about every other day and I would count my hairs after shampooing and I'd lose about
300 -and that was just after shampooing. I did notice it get worse after having my hair collored -she used
some kind of thickener on my hair which irritated my scalp and made it red/itchy/burning.
I got blood work done. I had my hormones tested, my thyroid tested, my iron levels,
you name it, ANA, CBC, DHEA all came back fine. Then I went to a dermatologist who diagnosed me
with alopecia and prescribed me a steroid and antiinflammatory (I think it was Clobetasol). She also
told me to use 2% Rogaine and then simply left before answering any of my questions although she
did say that they would take a scalp biopsy to find out conclusively if it was alopecia, but that I should
use Rogaine regardless. That Clobetasol maybe helped a little bit with the itching and burning, but did
nothing for my hair loss. The Rogaine just left my scalp irritated so I was afraid to use it any more thinking
it was going to make more hair fall out. I made an appointment with a second dermatologist
who looked at a few of my hairs with a microscope and told me that the ends of most of my hair were
tapered -whatever that means. He also said that the scalp
biopsy the last dermatologist ordered was basically pointless. Neither dermatologist thought I had
female pattern alopecia. The second one said that Rogaine probably wouldn't do anything, but did give me a
weaker topical steroid to help with the itching and burning and told me to take a multivitamin.
The topical steroid just made the itching and burning worse and made the hair loss worse too. The
second dermatologist said that most dermatologists don't do much with hair loss.
I also went to a hair transplant doctor who said I wasn't a candidate because I have too much
hair and basically told me not to worry about it that I "looked fine." The doctor told me that she
had never seen someone with alopecia totalis who wasn't dead in a few months. What was really insulting was
when she told me she thought I was pulling my hair out or combing it too much. I think I would know if I was
combing my hair too much. I wouldn't recommend that doctor to anyone. Horrible.
Next I went to a wig salon and they gave me a scalp cleanser, and a special shampoo and conditioner.
I noticed with this that a main ingredient was alcohol which just made things worse.
They tried to sell me on what they called a "Micro Point Solution" which is essentially a synthetic hair
that they attach to your existing hair to give it a thicker look.
Another salon wanted to weave in a bunch of extensions in the back of my head. I've probably been to every
internet website on hair loss looking for information.
I tried the Nisim shampoo, which was supposed to stop hair loss in a week -it didn't. I tried an
apple cider vinegar rinse which was supposed to make the hair thicker -it didn't. And the hair support
scalp cleanser did nothing.
For as long as I can remember I've had problems with anxiety and depression, and with the hair loss stress
became an issue, and honestly I think that these all became a MUCH LARGER issue due to these unanswerable
medical problems (hair loss). It started to consume my day. I would spend hours thinking about it and
looking in the mirror and crying crying crying. I was going off my antidepressants but had to start
up again because I was just so sad. From an inellectual standpoint I realize the vanity in being so
concerned about one's hair but I just can't stop feeling horrible about this. Before starting Stimulair I decided
to get rid of all the mirrors in my house.
One day my dermatologist just got back from a conference, and recommended the Stimulair system. We
went over your e-Book together, The Science of Hair Growth and she agreed with everything and thought it
was great information and said it made much more sense to buy the single supplement that had all the vitamins
and amino acids and enzymes than to get them all individually. So I purchased it along with the shampoo
and conditioner and was very good about keeping up with it day to day. Almost immediately, within the
first week, I noticed slight improvement. It just got better from there.
This system is genius and works when nothing else does, as my story shows. "
