I have had hair loss for years when I found out about Hair Inxs. In Jan-18 i was feeling so bad about the way I looked I finally took the plunge and booked myself in. I was really nervous about what would happen but the team were fantastic and my new hair was AMAZING, in fact I would say life changing!!! I no longer felt like an old woman in fact I feel a new confidence and my husband said I looked like the lass he had first meet 20 years ago. I would recommend Hair Inxs and their fantastic team to anyone who is losing their hair.
I?ve been going to Debbie and her team for hair extensions for 2 years , the care and attention to detail and colour matching are excellent, I really recommend this salon they?ve transformed my hair , wouldn?t go anywhere else love the team at Hairinxs
Excellent customer service. Very friendly and welcoming. All round amazing services :)
Spent the day with Debs Jane and Taz Saturday. I had been looking for someone to do this for me, another stylist quoted me ?8900 for a two year treatment! Obviously haven't got that sort of money! Had seen Debs years ago, got back in touch, not only has the price not inflated in 10+ years, she treated me with her usual kindness and discretion. I had the salon to myself, endless cups of coffee, and spent 4 hours being transformed back into myself. I can't recommend these ladies enough. Chuffed to bits with it. And a lovely catch up thrown in too. Anyone thinking about doing this, go see her. She works magic :)
I have had extensions and weaves, intralace systems etc for the past 20 years and have experienced a lot of salons in my attempt to have a great full head of hair. Some salons have been good however a recent experience from a so-called hair loss clinic in Wokingham was so appalling that I was at my wits end and left with little confidence, ?2,000 wasted on hairpieces from China that went bald within a few weeks and wasted over ?2,000. I was then emailed by the owner to say that they didn't want me back in the salon to have the repaired piece fitted back on and the piece is still sitting in the salon. I desperately began to search the internet to find someone who could help me and I happened upon the most amazing salon by chance. I called on the Monday and was told that the owner was in the hospital visiting her Mother but they would let her know I called. Amazingly, the owner Debbie called me from the hospital, arranged for my colour hair to be delivered the next day and booked me in for the next day!!
Debbie is a true professional, she has been in the hair loss and hair extension business for many years and knows exactly what she is doing. She has a very approachable manner, is interested in her clients welfare over profits and does an amazing job. The team are just as welcoming and make the experience a relaxed and enjoyable one. Most importantly you walk out of this salon feeling fantastic and confident which is the most important factor when you have fine hair or any sort of hair loss condition.
I couldn't recommend this salon enough. Thank you to Debbie and the team.
I have suffered with hair loss over the last 10 years but has got severely worse post menopause and over time have found myself becoming more and more self conscious so much so that I didn't want to go out socially which is not me at all. My daughter brought home a leaflet for Hair INXS which I read and pondered on for a good few weeks then I finally contacted Debbie and quite frankly she won't get rid of me now. Yesterday I had the most amazing experience with Debbie and all her team and can quite honestly say I feel like a different person my hair looks absolutely fabulous I cant stop looking in the mirror and I'm told I look so much younger. So anyone out there suffering in the same way I couldn't recommend this salon highly enough. It will change your life. Thank you so much Debbie xxxx
I am a transgender woman who transitioned later in life and unfortunately this meant I had legacy hair loss on the crown, top and front of my head. Whilst the loss has probably been stopped now by he treatment I'm receiving, the options for recovering or hiding it seemed entirely unsuitable or impracticable. I was wearing a clip in hair piece because the rest of my hair was fortunately quite healthy, but I never felt completely comfortable, secure or happy with it. Social situations could be daunting, especially if likely to be outdoors or in inclement weather; as a consequence I actively began to avoid them and was struggling with my confidence. Any kind of sporting activity or swimming was completely out of the question! If I'm honest I was becoming quite depressed about the future.
After several conversations with friends on closed FB pages I found out about the hair system offered by Debbie and HairInxs team. The salon was highly recommended by others, many of whom who had the hair system fitted, or had friends who had done so. I therefore contacted Debbie and had a long conversation about how the system works, how long it lasts, how it is maintained and of course how much. I am semi-retired so I have to say the biggest issue was cost. After much deliberation, however, I decided to book my appointment and have the system fitted.
After only two days I can honestly say it has transformed my life, my confidence has grown off the scale, I now feel complete and able to fully interact in all social situations. As previously mentioned I am semi-retired, but in the next few months will have to return to work. Without my transformation by Debbie and the team I don't see how I would have been able to face this.
If you are thinking of having this done I urge you to talk to Debbie, the advice, help and support I received beforehand was excellent. On the day of my appointment the team were so friendly, professional and quite simply just lovely company. I also met two other clients and it was clear how much this hair loss solution had improved their lives.
All I can say is a huge and heartfelt thank you to Debbie and the team...
I have to admit to being a bit of a perfectionist, and not really being satisfied with any of the wigs I had bought or seen so far, I needed something a little more convincing! It doesn?t help that I am transitioning and although I am full time like many I have the usual male pattern baldness to contend with. I approached Debbie, who with her infinite patience answered all my questions. I booked the day and was treated so well by the girls who were fun but professional all the way through, I watched the process revealed, the end results were amazing, Debbie had said its life changing but that is the understatement of the year! I absolutely love it and cannot recommend it enough, and trust me you won?t regret it! In fact your only question will be why didn?t you do it earlier? I put the girls through their paces and we changed the plans many times as we progressed, and bless them they took it all in their stride, and one of my biggest asks was to be able to put it up in a ponytail, all was done and the girls never broke their stride to change things as they went ? absolutely top class customer service- honestly I could ask for nothing more, and there was tea on tap all day and food at lunch time so a day of heaven and a lifetime onward of gorgeous hair ? whatever are you waiting for??
I started to lose my hair when I was 15 years old and tried a variety of different things to cover up/stop the loss from thickening shampoos to hair loss medical products. Unfortunately, none of these worked for me as my hair loss was genetic and my hair kept getting thinner year after year. I am now 24 and my hair is extremely thin with the majority of my scalp visible. I knew I had to do something more permanently to cover up the thinning. Having thin hair made me incredibly anxious and stopped me from doing ?normal? things like going out with friends. I was always worried that someone would notice how thin my hair was. The only thing I could do was to try and cover my scalp with a coloured hairspray and with hair fibres ? this worked to a point but was itchy and uncomfortable and left black marks on my clothes and bedding and as soon as my hair got wet the black powder/hairspray would wash out.
I came across the hair replacement system offered by Debbie at her salon and had an initial ?consultation? telephone call with her. I could tell immediately that she was very informed about hair loss and had a lot of experience in dealing with this. She was available to chat to whenever I had any questions which was great. We communicated via text and I felt like she really understood how I was feeling and she made me feel so comfortable and excited that I was finally going to get my hair fixed.
Debbie?s team are absolutely amazing. All of the girls were really friendly and they made me feel so relaxed and safe which reduced my stress levels. The whole team really understood what I was going through and how I was feeling ? they are all clearly very experienced and have empathy and sensitivity in abundance. I would 100% recommend Debbie and her team. I feel fantastic now ? I can do everything I want to without worrying about my hair. I go out all the time now and it doesn?t take me nearly as long to get ready! My confidence has grown dramatically, I?ve been going on dates and seeing my friends so much more ? it?s just amazing how much difference having a full head of hair can make to how you feel and how you live your life.
Thank you so much Debbie and team! X
In 1995 my hair started to thin out, I started using all sorts of products to thicken my hair but still didn't look good. In 1999 a friend, who was a Dr, suggested I see a dermatologist. My GP recommended me to Dr David Fenton at St Thomas Hospital who, afer a consultation, a blood test and a test from the root of my hair, said I had telogen efflevium and prescribed Minixodil. It worked very slowly and I was also trying of kinds of products to enhance my thinning hair, I spent lots of money!!
Last year, September 2015, St Thomas hospital discontinued Minoxidil. I then googgled trichlogists and found the nearest one 10 miles away. She prescribed a lotion but my hair was not growing at all, in fact I was losing more hair.
I was feeling down I didn't want to go out, always finding excuses for not going to parties. If I went to a restaurant I always sat with my back to the wall so that people could not see my thinning hair. I never worry of what to wear but worry about my hair. I was so conscious of my thinning hair.
As I was always googling about thinning hair I came across hair extensions, hair pieces, hair transplants, I opted for hair extensions and got in touch with Debbie, had a consultation She was very reassuring built my confidence enough to make me pluck up courage and have extensions put in. I felt very relaxed- she is very friendly.
I had the extensions put in on the 14th of July 2016 and been delighted with the change and what is more encouraging is how all my friends and neighbours commented how good it looks, how much younger I look, my daughter said I look 100 years younger (cheek) . Everybody says it looks so natural,and that if we didn't know you, we would not have known that it was not your own hair. Now I can go out with confidence I can go on holiday abroad which I was reluctant to do.
when I cancelled my appointment with the trichologist I sent her a picture of my new hairdo she said " you look amazing."
Michelle who did my hair, was very bubbly, very nice and made feel very relaxed. She very friendly and it was as if I have known her for years- and she makes a nice cup of tea which is always welcoming after a long drive from Tunbridge Wells.
I am very happy that I had my hair done and it has really boosted my confidence. A big THANK YOU to all the staff.
I was involved in a car accident and shattered my pelvis which resulted in a long stay in hospital and immobile for several months. I suffered post trauma stress which resulted in hair loss - I was so upset and and depressed. Debbie came to see me and after an assessment said they could help me, this lifted me but I was still a little sceptical as I found the hair loss so traumatic. Two weeks later the treatment was carried out and I really can not believe it!! In fact the hospital staff didn't recognise me. I am currently having hydrotherapy and it really is wash and go as it looks great I let the hair dry naturally. Thank you to you all for your kindness and understanding.
How do i start with my journey??? From the beginning then ok i will go from there.. I have always had fine,fragile hair then was introduced to clip in hair extensions... Firstly i used them for the occasional night out then it became a daily obsession.It started from applying one strip then two just to make it fuller so i felt better in myself.Then i doubled them up to make my hair even fabulous.. One day to my shock after sectioning my hair off i looked in the mirror on a side angle and noticed a huge section of hair missing !! I was totally in shock. Not noing what to do i positioned the hair extensions lower down to avoid the damage then when this hair fell out i position them higher up!!... This worked for a while but all my hair started breaking off and i had nowhere to go... I did not want to wear a full wig.!! Looking on the internet one day i stumbled upon the website Hair INXS and was intrigued. Because of the travel distance from Hull to Windsor Wendy did a consultation over the internet i sent her photos of my hair and bald patches and the look style and colour i wished to achieve. She assured me they would have lots of choices in stock to cover all angles. I arrived at the salon and was greeted by the two members of staff and i am soo sorry but cannot remember there names but they were both amazing. My dream of having fabulous flowing locks started!! OMG OMG what can i say !!! The transformation is totally stunning !! I look fab*u*lous even without make~up on !! and thats a first!!! I feel amazing and all my confidence has returned and my depression has started to lift .. For the first time when i get out of bed now i smile!! My first day back at work was today as been on sick for a while due to depression and nobody could believe it !!! The colours are fabulous, i just squish cold water on my hair , scrunch & go and look amazing !!!! hahhahaha xx love it xx see you soon HAIR INXS cannot wait !! And my hair will recover !!! xxxxxxx mwah to you all xx
What can I say?!?! This place is literally amazing as well as all the staff who work there. I had been suffereing with Trichotillomania since I was 15 years old, forever covering up patches with headbands then learning how to style my own hair to cover it.. until it became too bad. I went to another salon to get a system fitted, which only led to more problems. My own hair was cut short and glue applied making my scalp burn and itch. I went to Debbie and Michelle and they fitted me with my dream hair! They did everything in their power to ensure that my own hair underneath my system would grow back and boy did it. I have gone from being nearly completely bald on top of my head to now - would you believe - having the entire system removed and my own hair!!!! I never thought this would be possible for me. This was all down to the wonders of Hair In Xs and their amazing attitude towards their customers. If you are in the same position as I was at 21 years old, please go for it. I am now 24 and have been 420 days pull free and have a full head of flowing hair on my head. They are complete angels. Cannot rate highly enough xxxxxx
My daughter suffers from alopecia and it has been extremely stressful ensuring that her patches are covered. As this was becoming more difficult I was desperate to find a way to deal with this. I then came across hair INXS on the web and having been very impressed with their website, and NHS recommendation, immediately called them for more information. I spoke to Debbie who asked me to come in for a consultation with my daughter. Following the consultation, we then arranged an appointment for the extensions for a few days later. All the staff were lovely and extremely efficient and quick. My daughter now has a beautiful and natural looking full head of hair and no longer worries how her hair looks. This is worth every penny to me as she appears so much happier and more confident. Thank you SO much!
I am 34 years old and have suffered with trichotillomania for 20 years. As a result I had about only a third of my natural hair on my head. This affected my life and made everyday tasks for example getting ready in the mornings extremely difficult and stressful, I spent a lot of time trying to hide my bald patches and thin hair. I would feel anxious about my appearance every time I left my house. I would miss out on the fun things with my family like swimming with my children or going on theme park rides. I would avoid situations that may have drawn attention to me, even to the extent I wouldn?t wear certain clothes in case people would look at me and notice my hair. I certainly found it difficult entering a hair salon with my children to get their hair cut as I felt I was being starred at and judged.
Now all of that has changed. My daughter suggested hair extensions so I googled ?hair extensions for trichotillomania?. Debbies website came up so I decided to email her. I immediately received an email and then had a chat with Debbie on the phone. Within 2days I was accepting an appointment to meet Debbie at her salon. I was extremely nervous and I kept thinking I would be starred at and judged when I walked into the salon. I need not have worried. As soon as I met Debbie and her team I felt relaxed, I was just ?Kerry?. The atmosphere was so welcoming and friendly I just felt at ease.
The results are amazing! It is very difficult to put into words how having hair for the first time in 20 years has changed my life and my family?s life. Not only do I have hair now but my natural hair is also growing as I have not been pulling it out since Debbie done my hair. I only wish I had met Debbie many years ago.
I wanted to say a massive thanks to Debbie and her very amazing team who just made my Christmas this year extra special! I have suffered hairloss since I was 23 it is Genetical and no vitamins or hair products have helped me I have tried for years! After visiting Debbie for a consultation she was so knowledgable on hair loss and made me feel really comfortable about my decision on the hair extensions. I was booked in five days later and Debbie worked her magic on my hair and also her team!! The finish product is awesome I feel so much more like myself now. I spend fifteen minutes getting ready now oppose to hours trying to cover up my bold spots. I didn't realise anything as good as this existed and I am so so pleased with the finished product! Thank you guys for giving me back my time and my beauty your service is awesome I would recommend you to anyone else who is suffering the same hair issues I did.
"Ten years ago I retired , aged 65yrs. I was looking forward to the freedom. I have had problem hair all my life, and, very unhappy with wigs (after an humiliating experience at hospital.) I was introduced to Debbie and extensions. (I have net to cover sever thinning), and a full head of extensions to create fabulous fair wavy hair. I have never looked back. To wake up with full head of natural looking hair, is a miracle dream come true. A real confidence boost. I could not enjoy the full life that I live without it."
"I've been having my hair extensions done by the staff at Hair In-X-S for seven years. I am a dancer and a model and was not very happy with my appearance but when i started having hair extensions it completely changed the way i felt about myself. It's given me so much confidence which shows not only in my attitude but in my work. It's the best thing i've ever done. Over the years i've been able to have my hair any length, any style and any colour without even colouring or cutting my own hair simply through the aid of my hair extensions. I've been so happy with the treatment and extensions i've received from the staff at Hair In-X-S that I wouldn't consider going anywhere else. I definitely think that having hair extensions can change your confidence levels no end"
"In 1999 I was diagnosed with a brain tumor which was benign and was removed but because a very small amount of the tumor could not be taken out I had to undergo radiotherapy, which resulted in major hair loss. Not being able to come to terms with the fact that my hair may never grow back and dreading the thought of spending the rest of my life wearing a wig I went in search of a solution and found that solution with Debbie at Hair-in-x-s. Debbie and her team gave me the life that I could only have dreamed of. It has now been six years and I have led a perfectly normal life working and doing things that I know I would never have done if I had to wear a wig. I felt so depressed at the thought of losing my hair that if I hadn't found Debbie and Hair-in-x-s then I was not going to have the radiotherapy and ran a very high chance that the tumor would come back. They are all brilliant, my hair looks so natural and nobody knows any different. They gave me my life back and my husband his wife and my children their mum and I am eternally grateful."
"At the end of July 2007 at the age of 13 I was diagnosed with a Medulloblastoma Brain Tumour. Unfortunately my surgeon was not able to remove all of my tumour, I also stopped breathing during my operation but fortunately my heart restarted on its own again only for me to then suffer a minor stroke.
A month after my original operation I began a 4 month course of chemotherapy followed by six and a half weeks of radiotherapy to my brain and spine. I was informed before starting my course of radiotherapy that I would lose my hair, resulting in it growing back very thin, patchy and bald around the bottom half of my head.
Debbie and her wonderful team of staff, Sam, Christie and Ethan from Hair-In-X-s gave me back not only my confidence but my life.
I had previously worn wigs now and again when going out but I would mostly wear a hat to cover up my thin, patchy hair, that was until I had the fantastic treatment from Debbie and the team to give me a full head of hair again.
I can't tell you how happy I feel to be able to go out with my mum and family now without people looking at me as if I wasn't normal.
The dedication, care, attention and support that Debbie, Sam, Christie and Ethan give to me and my mum each time we attend an appointment at the salon is truly amazing. I can't thank you all enough for what you have done and are still doing for me."
"I started to pull my hair when i was 13, i have Trichotillomania. I was bald on the top of my head. The size was large like a hand. Thoughout my life I have been living in fear of anyone finding out. I tried to cover my baldness with scarfs, hats and wearing my hair in one style. I missed out on many activities like swimming, going out and just socialising with friends because I do not have any confidence. When I was 20 I disscovered Hair. inxs through the yellow pages. I went in to see Debbie, she helped me. I had a net to cover my bald patch with a full head extensions. My life changed from that day! Debbie and her team, has restored my confidence and youth. I have a life now. I had a wish come true. I have beautiful long natural hair. It also retricted me from pulling my hair aswell so my problem improved. Debbie and her team has my entire trust, they are very professional yet extremly friendly. I love going to see them. Im 30 now and go to have my hair done at hair.inxs 3 times a year. I have been going for 10 and a half years now. No words can describe how much Debbie and her team has helped and supported me.
Dear Debbie and her team, I cannot thank you all enough for all that you have done and still doing for me."
"I?d always had long, thick, strong hair, so when it started breaking off and thinning in my early fifties I didn?t believe it would be permanent. However, instead of recovering, it got worse. Having previously taken for granted that my hair drew compliments I took it very badly that it was noticeably thin on top and I became depressed and obsessed with how awful I looked. Coping with getting older was one thing, but my dreadfully thin hair aged me beyond my years.
My doctor confirmed that there was nothing medically wrong to cause it, but said he was unable to help. I spent lots of money trying expensive ?remedies? that didn?t work for me.
Then I decided to wear a wig. At first I was pleased with the confidence they gave me. Although I always felt that everyone knew I was wearing a wig as soon as they looked at me. I was always self-conscious and aware of the wig, never fully relaxed. In fact, the wigs were pretty good and close to my original hair colour and style so I now admit that it was probably only people who knew me very well that might have noticed a difference ? if they looked closely.
After a while I started to feel that the wigs were (almost) more trouble than they were worth. They were hot and itchy, it was difficult or impossible to undertake certain activities, although luckily I?m not sporty. I knocked it off when I had to have a blood test. I spent what should have been a lovely day out on a boat, holding on to my fringe so that it didn?t blow back and show the hard, obvious hairline, and worrying that it would move in the wind. I caught it on a branch when I stood up under a tree at a picnic. I lost interest in clothes shopping because I couldn?t be bothered with the hassle of trying anything on that had to go over my head. And I hated that instead of brushing my hair in front of the mirrors in ladies loos, I was always taking my wig off and replacing it in the actual cubicle. I always felt like ripping it off and scratching my head to pieces. The list goes on.
I?d found a very expensive London salon offering a system for thinning hair but when I visited them I ended up sobbing uncontrollably back to the tube after I?d been told very quickly that my hair was too fragile and I couldn?t be helped. I was devastated and thought I was stuck with wigs for life.
Then I came across Debbie at Hair InXs. I honestly didn?t think she?d be able to do anything for me after my previous rejection, but I had to know that I?d tried every possible avenue. I sent Debbie an email and back came a positive reply. I was still disbelieving and put forward more problems. Debbie spoke to me on the phone, for nearly an hour, reassuring me and boosting my confidence. She was very easy to talk to and not at all pushy, but I decided I wanted an appointment to see her straight away.
The salon has the friendliest, most relaxed atmosphere you can imagine. Everyone was so cheerful and kind, offering drinks and making me feel comfortable. When the time came for me to remove my wig I didn?t feel at all upset or nervous as I always had before. Debbie assessed my hair and reassured me that the problems preventing the other salon from helping didn?t apply to her system, she showed me lots of photos of happy clients looking fantastic with a huge variety of hairstyles, also a wide range of ages. I decided without hesitation it was for me.
The actual fitting was carried out in the same relaxed atmosphere and I felt that I?d known them all for years. Debbie cut my new hair into shape and I felt transformed.
Since then, I?ve been back for the six-week appointments and greeted again like a friend they?d all known for ever. It only takes about 40 minutes and was just like the days when I used to enjoy a visit to my hairdresser every six weeks ? although I?ve never been to such a fun salon as Debbie?s!
I?ve tried on clothes in shop changing rooms and come out to ask for a second opinion instead of dashing in case the curtain moves and reveals me without a wig, I?ve worn a hat and hoods, brushed my hair along with everyone else in ladies loos, tied it back and pinned it up, AND I walked to the top of Glastonbury Tor on an incredibly windy day without holding onto my head, my hair blew about like everyone else?s and I actually felt the wind in my hair! I go to bed looking normal and get out of bed ready to open the door to the postman (as long as he?s admiring my hair and not looking at my face!).
In short, Debbie has made me feel normal again and that my life is in no way restricted. The stress and depression that I had before has lifted. My trip to Debbie is 200 miles there and back and I know that many other ladies travel much further than that, because it?s so worth it. I suppose it?s not cheap, if you only compare it to someone with their own hair having a cut and blow dry at an ordinary small town salon, but it?s not that different to what I was spending on wigs and they made me miserable. I?d unhesitatingly recommend Debb"
"I know that losing your hair might seem a small thing when compared to surviving a massive brain tumour, but on a day to day basis it really did affect me. After the radiotherapy that I had to have, I was left with a huge bald patch on the top of my head. My hair never grew back and I hated wearing wigs.
I found out about Debbie at Hair INXS by accident. A family friend mentioned that his wife had her hair done at a salon which also specialised in women?s hair loss. It took me six months to make that initial phone call but, after I did, I?d had my hair done within a week. Now, more than three years later, I can truthfully say that I?ve never looked back.
People can?t tell that my hair isn?t ?my own?. In fact, I?m often handed vouchers for hair cuts or blow-dries ? which I always take as a compliment. I now wear my hair in a bob, which I?d never have been able to do before. I love my new hair. In fact, it?s the best my hair has ever looked.
I?d worn wigs for two years and never felt right in them. I?d always feel self conscious ? as if people were looking at me ? and in the summers they were boiling hot. My husband is Dutch and on one occasion in Rotterdam we?d all gone shopping and there was quite a wind brewing. I could feel my wig moving and put my hand over it whilst my sister-in-law tied a headscarf round my head to stop it flying off. I looked like an old granny walking along with the headscarf tied under my chin! It seems funny now, but at the time it was very traumatic ? we all had visions of it blowing off and rolling down the road!?
The team in Windsor is truly amazing ? all of them are so immensely kind and endlessly patient and supportive and the salon atmosphere is so relaxed ? like one big happy family."
"All my life I've had thin, fine hair but, having reached my sixties, my hair started thinning even more. I first came to Debbie in 2009 and now my life has changed. I had a net to cover the top of my head and hair extensions over the rest of my head. I feel that I have a real head of hair for the first time in my life! Thank you Debbie and your team for doing a wonderful job."
"I was pretty nervous considering this option of hair extensions to fill out my thinning hair due to PCOS, but now that I have done it I wish I had taken the plunge years ago.
You do have to change your routine, getting ready in the morning but if anything it makes it easier! I can still tie it up out of the way and even experiment with different styles that I could never achieve before. It has only been 2 months but friends say they can't even remember me with out the hair extensions!
My top tip would be.. Batiste Dry shampoo! Keeps you looking fresh and gets and extra day or two out of a wash and dry.
Honestly, if you are nervous, go and see for yourself... take the mystery out of the process and trust Debbie, she knows what she is talking about"
"I've been seriously ill since 2002 and one of the worst symptoms has been my long dark curly hair, which got more and more unhealthy over the years until the point in October 2013 when it really started to get to me. It was very thin on top and I had bald patches, and my curls had turned to frizz. I turned into a total recluse.
One day my dad asked me if there was anything I could do about it, so I did some research and found Debbie and Hair InXs. We had a lovely long conversation one night after she finished work, during which I asked her everything under the sun, and we texted each other every day. She had a space for me the next week so I travelled to Windsor from Portsmouth, excited and nervous. I met the whole team - Debbie, Julie, Michelle and Jade - and it was a brilliant day. It was like a girls' night out and my husband was well cared for too, with a TV and magazines to keep him occupied.
Debbie used a special method which she personalises to each client, depending on their hair texture and condition. Four hours later I had long, loose curls which she'd colour-matched to my own dark brown hair perfectly. No one can tell it isn't my own hair but I will never pretend otherwise because I'm so proud of my hair now.
My new hair has totally changed the way I feel about myself now - I put some photos straight onto Facebook; previously I'd never taken a selfie in my life! My husband can't stop complimenting me and all my friends and family love it, but no one loves it more than me! It's so easy to look after now; all I have to do is wash and condition it every three days or so and between washes I just wet it and brush it, then tousle it with my fingers. It looks as good on day three as it does freshly washed.
I want to thank the girls soooo much for changing my life. And special thanks to my wonderful dad for giving me the best treat I've ever had.
I'm not vain: I just wanted to look like me again."
"I have been coming to Hair INXS for four years now. Initially I started going as I had a bad experience with some extensions which had been fitted with Latex glue at another salon, my hair had snapped and I was left with some bald patches on my scalp. I was very impressed with the human hair that they used and found that I was able to look after it just as I would my own hair, blowdrying and straightening it. The extensions I looked after and came back every six weeks for a top up which was very quick. After a year of human hair I decided I would try the fibre hair (classic) this gave my hair the natural curl that I wanted and that I would normally do using my hair tongs. I could not believe just how light the hair was and so easy to manage. I could just wash my hair and leave to dry or dry on a cool heat. I had been deliberating on whether the fibre hair would look un-natural which is why I never opted for this in the first place but since having had fibre extensions for the last 3 years I would not look back or hesitate in recommending them. The team an Hair INXS are very friendly and they do look after you and care about what you want and how you want to look as well as giving their advice. I have last year been diagnosed with cancer and had to go through all the hair loss and Debbie and her team have been amazing and very caring. Today I have been back for my first appointment since losing my hair and had my very first hair cut and colour, they were fantastic and did everything I asked for and more to make me feel good. I will not be going anywhere else and will look forward to getting my luscious locks back in soon!"
My son Billy age 17 was diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2008 after radiotherapy his hair did not grow back leaving him with bald patch across the middle of his head which had a dramatic effect on his self esteem , as a parent we would of done anything to see him smile again Then I came across Hair Inxs on the internet ,We met with Debbie she was caring and very informative saying how natural it would be ,even explaining he would be able to go swimming and play football. I will never forget the day he had his hair done his smile was electric. Even the consultants and nurses could not believe Billy's hair was not all his own as it looks so natural. Debbie and her staff gave our son his self esteem and life back and we are truly very grateful to them.
