I’m Sarah Landon, the Director of Hove Hair Clinic. My interests and involvement in hair and scalp care started way back when I was 14 years old. I had been suffering with a skin condition on my scalp which was getting increasingly worse and thicker and thicker until it was impossible for me to hide it anymore. I went to my doctor (who is a Dermatologist) time and time again and tried all sorts of lotions and potions only to find nothing worked and no referral was offered. Luckily for me our neighbour knew a Trichologist, so my Mum made me an appointment.
At the very first meeting my condition was given a name. The relief I felt was amazing. As it was so severe it took time, dedication and a new routine at home of the products to clear it but I was ready to try anything.
The change was unbelievable and of course the change was in me too. Don’t get me wrong it wasn’t an instant cure. It took time and dedication, but I was now in charge of it instead of the other way around. I was given a kit to use at home consisting of balms, cleansers, vitamins, shampoo and conditioners which with hard work and dedication, we were able to cure my scalp of the condition. To this day I use the products to maintain healthy hair and scalp.
I then went travelling in 1998 for a year, and was having the time of my life, but one day in New Zealand I was washing my hair and it felt different as I was rinsing the out the conditioner. To my horror I was left with 2 fist fulls of hair. The majority of the back had fallen out and it had thinned everywhere else. I was devastated, and I couldn’t think why this had happened. Ok my diet wasn’t as stable and as good as it could have been, but why this reaction? It turned out that an accumulation of things had triggered it, and as I have learnt it can take up to 5 years for stress to manifest so it was a delayed reaction.
I ordered some more products to be sent out to Canada (where I was heading) and began treating myself again. It had affected my confidence immensely and I wore a bandana most of the time. I considered going home early but decided that I would treat myself for the remaining couple of months then start treatments once I was home.
When I did get home, I brought a hair piece and began regular treatments in the Clinic and continued treating myself at home, in between. It took the best part of 2 years to get it back, but with hard work and determination it all came back.
Unfortunately, I went through a traumatic experience a couple of years later and exactly the same thing happened almost instantly. I put on my hair piece again and this time was much more relaxed about it as I knew in time it would grow back and it did, this time a bit quicker which I believe was due to the fact that I was more relaxed.
So here I am, running my own successful Clinic in Hove helping people in similar or the same position, using awarding winning HLCC Scripts Products and Treatments and Laser Hair Restoration Therapy. Along with Mediceuticals Dermatelogical Scal,Hair & Skin Solutions. It’s so rewarding to see the difference it can make to people, and to see hair growing on clients who had been told by numerous Doctors and Specialists that they will never get any hair back.
