Look at this hair! It’s hard to believe that it was only August last year I got told it would keep falling out and that I likely had androgenetic alopecia by the NHS. I cried. Luckily, In a desperate state, my client recommended I invest in a private trichologist and I found Cheryl. It was only when we had our first consultation and Cheryl looked into the background to my hair loss that I realised what I had been doing to myself for almost a year and it had a massive impact on my hair. I had a really tough year in 2017 and I was not eating well at all, barely sleeping and surviving on coffee. Some days I didn’t eat for more than 24 hours. That and the stress of being a single, working mum of four thrown in the mix took its toll massively on me. I wasn’t kind to my hair at all and abused the dry shampoo ALOT which blocked my follicles over time. Cheryl analysed my hair strands from the root which confirmed they were almost empty with no nutrition and my scalp was clinging onto dead hair and not producing any new hair. The trouble is it take a few hairs cycles (3 months) to even realise there’s a problem. Cheryl put me on a scalp detox and cleansing regime to do at home using La Biosthetique products which have essential oils in and supplements to take and even after a few months we saw a mass in hair growth! This lady absolutely knows her stuff and I’m so glad I found her!
4 months ago I was diagnosed with alopecia areata. It was suggested I go to see a trichologist. I found Cheryl via a search of the web. She contacted me immediately and advised to visit for a consultation. The consultation involved taking samples of hair and analysing under a microscope. The results were quite an eye opener and the advice Cheryl gave me lead to a change in lifestyle and healthier diet to compliment the treatment I was to receive. After an initial 6 weeks detox treatment which you do at home I started an 8 week course of stimulants that you receive in half hour sessions with Cheryl once a week. I am now on session 7 and I can honestly say the results have been amazing. My patches have pretty much all disappeared and my hair seems thicker and healthier than it was before.
I cannot thank Cheryl Mackie enough for the support she has given me and the fantastic results of the treatment I have been receiving.
10 years ago I was diagnosed with female pattern hair loss by a high profile hair loss clinic, and put on Minoxodil drops. I used them religiously but never felt that they really stopped the shedding and in fact seemed to be contributing to other very negative side effects. After 9 years at that clinic, I switched to another hair loss specialist centre, was put on a higher strength of Minoxodil, and had such an adverse reaction (both physical and psychological) I was told to stop using them straight away and that I would need to tolerate my hair loss problem because nothing else could be done. By this point I was a complete emotional mess, had developed OCD behaviour related to my hair loss and was barely able to think straight. Still convinced all my hair was falling out but having been told Minoxodil was not going to solve the problem – and being well aware of the very negative reaction I had gone through and not wanting to experience anything like that again – I researched natural solutions and discovered Cheryl’s website.
I am so thankful that I managed to get an appointment. Cheryl was the only person who had ever pulled hairs out of my head and looked at them and the follicles in order to diagnose a condition. She told me she did not think I had female pattern hairloss, just a very stressed scalp (and a lot of stress in general). I felt reassured from the start and could feel that Cheryl genuinely wanted to help.
Cheryl tells you from the start the treatment will take a while to take effect, but it is worth persevering. Almost one year down the line, I can hand on heart say my hair is no longer shedding, I have loads of regrowth, and – of equal importance – I am not a paranoid, obsessive bundle of nerves, as I was when I was using Minoxodil.
Thank you Cheryl Mackie for sorting out so much more than my hair 🙂
For my entire adult life I have suffered with an itchy, flaky, sore scalp. My poor scalp condition meant that my hair wasn’t able to grow healthily and looked very damaged with lots of short frizzy hairs over my otherwise straight hair. People often commented upon how damaged it looked. Over the years I have tried pretty much every option to improve my scalp and hair condition and nothing worked at all. I felt utterly miserable with it.
One of my internet searches thankfully led me to Cheryl. I had an initial consultation with Cheryl who looked at my hair and scalp and explained everything in perfect detail. I started on Cheryl’s programme for improving scalp condition starting with home treatment for 6 weeks followed by clinic appointments for 8 weeks. I noticed a 100% improvement in scalp condition over this time with new hair growing through and looking healthy. I am now following Cheryl’s programme for improved hair growth and I can see that the new hair is shiny and healthy and the old unhealthy hair is growing out. I am thrilled with this progress and truly grateful to Cheryl. Of course healthy hair relies upon other factors such as adequate hydration, nutrition and enough sleep and exercise. During my consultation, Cheryl discussed all these factors in a holistic approach which has led to me making small changes to my lifestyle which have had benefit to my overall health, including taking some supplements which were recommended by Cheryl.
My 12 year old son has recently started suffering from an itchy, flaking scalp and has started on the scalp improvement programme. I would highly recommend anyone wanting to improve the condition of their scalp and hair to have a consultation with Cheryl.
“I’ve got 3 auto immune diseases and Fibromyalgia thanks to this and the meds my hair has not grown but broke off for over a year and half. As you can imagine for a business woman’s coach that is more than not ideal. Thanks to working with Cheryl after 8 weeks my hair is growing. I’ve had to have my fringe cut already!”
“I was desperate for a remedy for my hair loss caused by a combination of hair weaves and stress. Most of my hair had fallen out when I discovered Cheryl’s clinic. I had my consultation in November 2014 and I am still being treated. Well I don’t know where to start! This treatment is AMAZING! Believe me it really works. I did not think my hair would ever grow back but only 7 months later my scalp is now covered in what people take for granted…..hair! I urge anyone with hair loss problems to stop worrying and make contact with Cheryl Mackie.”
“I think the service that Cheryl offers is brilliant. I had a mini hair assessment with her and I was absolutely amazed at what she could see just from looking at some of my hair strands through a special tool. She has incredible knowledge, she is very passionate about what she does & I would highly recommend her services to anyone. Thank you Cheryl x.”
In June 20120 I was diagnosed with breast cancer and after surgery followed by chemotherapy completed in January 2011, I lost all my hair.
I was aware that it might take time for my hair to grow back but it is usual for it to return within six months. Unfortunately, due to my reaction to the chemotherapy, my hair growth was extremely slow and I continued to wear my wig. By September 2012, well over a year of some hope of hair, I was recommended to see a Trichologist. My scalp was examined and it was agreed that there seemed to be some hope!! It was suggested that I used a selection of products my Marcel Contier, Biosthetics. The first a shampoo, then a serum in to the scalp to counteract hair loss and also vitamin capsules
By November 2012 I was able to finally stop wearing my wig as sufficient hair had grown to allow me the confidence to go without. It is now April 2013 and I have reasonable head of hair. I have been having regular trims which is important to strengthen the fine hair but am so pleased with the results. I only wish this treatment had been recommended to me sooner as the time without any progress of hair growth was quite depressing.
I have recommended to the breast care nurses at the hospital that they suggest this treatment to future patients that have similar problems.
Having suffered hair loss for some time, I had a consultation with Cheryl, following a recommendation.
I found her most knowledgeable on the subject of hair loss and following treatment, the improvement made with new hair growth, has raised confidence in my appearance, which is so important to self-esteem.
I would have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone with this condition, to consult her. You have nothing to lose and so much to gain.
After months of desperation trying to find someone to help with my thinning hair which was caused through illness trying numerous doctors who just simply wasn’t interested I found Cheryl’s clinic online.
Where do I begin with Cheryl, her kind reassuring professional sincere approach to my problem instantly made me feel at ease,
I’d lost all self-confidence and hope, but Cheryl from the first appointment gave me hope, after a few months under going a personal treatment plan Cheryl had created for me I started noticing the difference, there’s no quick fix to these problems which everyone wants, but I did notice differences which made a massive difference to me,
Cheryl really knows her stuff and explains everything in so much details, the reasons why, what the treatments will do, and what will be achieved.
I slowly regained my confidence, now a year on I haven’t seen my hair and skin look as thick and as healthy as this in a long time, and it’s all thanks to Cheryl.
Not only has she give me my confidence back, but I’ve also gained a treasured friend who has helped me so much,
I would highly recommend cm & skin, and I can thank Cheryl enough for everything she has done for me.
After a long time of sticking my head in the sand over my hair thinning, I decided to get some help and found Cheryl Mackies website. From my first appointment, Cheryl was brilliant. She was very helpful, understanding and got me on the treatments I needed. The products/ shampoos she provides are also fantastic, my hair is in much better condition, with my hair getting thicker and still improving! I would recommend Cheryl to anyone with hair issues, her knowledge, care and professionalism is second to none. I’m very grateful to her for all her help, even though she told me off a few times (in a nice way) 😉
Hope that is okay!
I cannot recommend Cheryl more highly, she is so professional. She really cares about ones hair.
I had been to see all the top trichologists in London and they did not give me the personal care that I got from Cheryl Mackie. My hair has shown huge signs of growth it is in better condition that I have ever had (Cheryl takes photos before and after) If you are worried about your hair, like I was, I cannot tell you enough how wonderful her treatment is. Results have been achieved and I have a future plan to follow at home.
Thanks again for your time on Saturday, pleasure catching up with you. As promised, please see below a testimonial for your website / social media platforms etc. By the way, I am happy for you to use the photographs that you have on file.
Late February 2019 I was at a dinner party with friends when one of them noticed and subsequently mentioned the top of my head. I’d noticed it sometime before but the thinning patch of hair was getting worse and I was doing my best to ignore it.
I made an appointment to see my GP and was effectively told to search the internet for ‘Alopecia’. I was lucky enough to find Cheryl through this search (though I had never heard of Trichology before) and set about an introductory telephone call which led to a consultation to discuss my predicament, timescale now Mid March 2019.
Cheryl and I met and had a good conversation, she analysed some of my hair but also my scalp and this led to her initial summaries – work on your gut health, overall stress levels, carry out a scalp detox 2 to 3 times a week and take a daily supplement that is designed to help stimulate the body into producing better hair growth, all of which you can do from home.
I have followed Cheryl’s advice for the last 6 moths and have to say that the results to date have been staggering and far outweighed my expectations. The patches that I had on the back of my head have all but gone and the two patches that remain do show hair growth albeit it a lot lighter than the rest of my hair, this is frequently changing though as I can see the root of the hair is my original colour.
My hair is regrowing, I have frequent trips to the barber and all this in just 6 months – I can’t thank Cheryl highly enough.
