Kellie Holloway from Winchester first noticed her hair was thinning when she was just 15 years old, but her obsession with covering her hair loss left her with bald patches.

Negative effect on confidence

When Kellie visited the doctor about her thinning hair he put it down to teenage hormones and told her to effectively 'wait it out'. However, in the 10 years that followed, her hair loss got progressively worse - undoubtedly, at least in part, due to her attempts to conceal her hair loss.

Kellie explains, "I was so conscious of my hair loss and trying to cover it up, it became a massive part of my morning routine... My hair loss was never far from my mind which had a big effect on my confidence."

This led to her spending hours creating hairstyles to cover her bald patches. Whilst working at a local salon she would experiment with styling products and various chemical hair dyes every other week in the hope that they might help to disguise her hair loss, saying: “I must have dyed it about 300 times. Once I started it become addictive".

Aged 25 Kellie's hair loss worsened after her son was born, so again she sought help, this time from a local dermatologist, but nothing worked.
