The 35-year-old explained. Wonderful The extra workload and the breakdown of the toxic relationship caused her to lose her hair – a character she always loved about herself.

Ashley, a former hair model, said: “I had good hair but a lot. It was long and well covered and shiny. I could do a lot of different styles on it.

“I felt confident. For me, my hair was one of my favorite traits, it was one of the most positive things in my appearance.

I remember saying to myself, “If all goes well, at least I’ve got my hair cut.”

But it was only after a tragic divorce that things changed for Ashley.

She told him Wonderful“I’ve been married for seven years but I’m divorced. It was very difficult to break up.”

At the age of 33, Ashley began to notice that something was wrong, and every time she used it, there were loads on her hair.

Ashley said: “Suddenly, it didn’t take long for me to decorate my hair. I was going to dry it and it was already dry.

“And my brushes were always completely covered in hair, but I thought it was normal to have so much hair coming out.”

Concerned, the mental health nurse told her mother what was happening and suggested that she go to a hairdresser for expert advice. The hairdresser refused to repaint Ashley’s hair, saying that it was too damaged.

“I like going to the hairdresser,” says Ashley. When I first noticed that things were going well, I went to highlight them, but she said that the statistics were too weak. It just broke.

“I am very sad because my hair color has always been light yellow. I have never had dark hair. I am very upset that I can’t get the color I want.

I remember saying to myself at low times: ‘If everything doesn’t work out, at least I’ve got my hair cut’.

“I kept coming back to ask if he was ready and they told me no. The situation got worse. Going to a barber shop turned out to be a test of my passion.”

Ashley was heartbroken, not only did her hair fall out, but now she could not find the color she was looking for.

She said: “I was always proud of being locked up, I felt like I was a very strong asset and something I loved very much about my appearance.

Ashley knows that hair loss is stressful in her relationship breakdown but the nature of her stressful work, she was high at the time of the outbreak and was in the middle of buying her own home did nothing to alleviate her anxiety. Her hair continued to fall out.

Ashley was a former hair model and loved to style her hair.

She says: “I think that the way my body handles all my stress.

“It really touched me emotionally, but my body reacted in an unexpected way, I didn’t expect it to hurt my hair.

“I love my job but I work with people who are not mentally healthy and I am already struggling with my own mental health. It was very difficult.

“My co-workers needed proper care and it was very difficult to give everything I was going through.”

Going to a hairdresser turned out to be one of my favorite things to do.

Ashley’s hair loss began to affect her relationship with the rest of her life.

She said, “I had a lot of turbans. My friends told me I had a turban no matter what I wore because I was one in every color!”

“People started to think that I was seriously ill and that my hair was missing from chemotherapy.

“I tried everything and spent hundreds of pounds buying special shampoos, ointments, conditioners and hair treatments. I even sent one from the United States.

Six solutions to take care of your lock

Experts say that if you notice that your hair is starting to fall out in two years, it may be a sign of coronary heart disease and disruption of your normal routine. Here are six tips to strengthen your hair.

  1. Be brilliant – Be careful to start brushing at the ends and gently add a lot of hair to each stroke. Be gentle and take your time and use a specially designed brush like Tangle Teezer to prevent unnecessary breakage.
  2. Useful Vitae – Lisa Borg, Pulseit Clinic nutritionist and dermatologist If your hair is suffering, you should review your diet. Vitamin B and zinc are important nutrients for your body.
  3. Simple metaphor – Avoid applying heat to your hair or doing any elaborate styling.
  4. Proper lubricants – Chloe Hazel, from Tints of Nature, explains that not using silicone products can hide the true condition of your hair. Also, make sure you are using a good conditioner to keep your hair moisturized.
  5. Proper nutrition – Natalia Ferrara, international educator at Rivatalash Cosmetics “Protein is essential for healthy hair. Oil, fish, chicken, eggs and soy are good sources.”
  6. Take care of # 1 – Stress leads to hair loss and thinning. Make sure you take time to take care of yourself and ask for support if you can’t cope. There is nothing shameful about asking for help.

“I tried to restore my hair and adjust my diet and include a lot of vitamins. But I didn’t see a small change in my hairline.”

Ashley has reached a point where there is no idea, product or treatment that no one has yet tested and she is in the end.

Eventually she found a product on Instagram that she hadn’t used on Instagram and decided to try a hair mastic supply for ten weeks and was very happy to see the difference.

“I always take ten weeks to three months to do things, and if I don’t notice the difference, I move on to something else. So I bought a three-month-old haircut and started seeing baby hair.

“I’ve been taking them for eight months now and I’ve got 4-5 inches of growth on the top of my head. I’m very happy with the results.

I think my body can handle all the stress.

“I’ve tried and tried many other methods and treatments, but the only thing that worked for me was the hair extension.”

Although her hair is not completely restored, Ashley is in a much better position.

She says: “I have had many changes, both mentally and physically.

“My social life has improved, I feel a new age in everything, and my hair is back. I’m getting there, not as it used to be.”

Ashley says that even during the most difficult days, her friends and family encouraged her at work.

She said: “My work has been a big positive in my life, everyone I work with has been really supportive.

“My friends were good too and without them and my family I would not have spent the last two years like I did. They are the most important part of my life.”
