Severe Hair Loss to Beox Keratin Treatment in the UK
by UK PV
I am writing from the UK and wanted to share my experience with you as this tragic epidemic of hair loss from this supposedly "amazing" product has also victimised people on the other side of the Atlantic too.
I have sadly spent the last two hours researching on why my hair was excessively falling out as I assumed it is a result from stress and have been in denial that the Beox keratin treatment I had done a month ago was responsible. But after stumbling across this forum/blog my worst fears were confirmed, it was the treatment!
The treatment used on me is called Beox Chocolate. I remember sitting in the salon whilst there were two girls applying the treatment to my hair, with a headache developing from the smell of the treatment. It progressively became worse once the stylist was straitening my hair as I could see the fumes steaming off my hair.
After leaving the salon my scalp felt very sore. I have a sensitive scalp and hardly blow dry or straighten my hair as the heat makes my scalp irritable. Therefore I do truly believe it was the heat and from the irons and the treatment that have burnt my scalp resulting in the hair loss as the hair strands visibly have the follicles attached to it.
My hair has been falling out excessively and like you all that are suffering from this has severely distressed me to the point of depression! My scalp was sore and become so flaky. I am ready to sign any petition to remove this dangerous product from the market! I think we need to make a stand now!
HAIR REGROWTH HOME REMEDIES:
With regards to helping re-growth and treating your scalp, I have been doing the following home remedies. I am Indian and we truly believe in the goodness of oiling hair esp using coconut oil and I also use grated aloe vera juice (my mum has a plant at home). I use both treatments to soothe my irritated scalp. Remember a healthy scalp will promote healthy hair.
Do either treatment at least once a week:
- Warm pure coconut oil and gently massage on your scalp. Massage for at least 15mins. Massaging boosts circulation. And then warm hair in a towel that has been soaked in warm water. The heat from the towel will open hair follicles to allow the oil to penetrate in to the scalp.
- Grate aloe vera, apply the juice to your scalp and them massage and the following the last few steps above.
I have also started taking hair vitamins and have started eating a lot of protein rich foods on a daily basis.
I hope this helps and let’s work together to stop this happening to others and to remove this dangerous product from the market!
