Thinning locks and bald patches… the hidden horrors of female hair loss and how to fix it
Neil suggested that I looked into it too. So I booked an appointment and together we went to see Lucinda.
She sat us down and explained all about the mesh-based Intralace system, where a fine mesh is put on your scalp.
Your existing hair is pulled through it and then more hair is attached to the mesh – with incredible results.
It wasn’t cheap and I wanted to try other, less invasive options first, so I tried Fullmore Coloured Hair Thickener.
It’s a bit like spray-on make-up for your scalp to give the appearance of more hair and it worked well for a couple of years, but I couldn’t touch my hair and if the weather was hot the product would drip down my face and neck.
So in 2014, in the run-up to my daughter Katie’s wedding, I went back to Lucinda and said I wanted to try the Intralace system.
The next week I spent the entire day getting it fitted – it was incredible how you couldn’t see the mesh at all and how I was instantly transformed. It cost me £2,300 and every six weeks I go back to have the mesh tightened and my hair cut, which costs £90 a time. But I have never looked back.
I regularly get compliments on my hair from strangers, which you can’t put a price on.”
