Healthy Hair, Happy Gal!
Whew! Boy am I a happy camper. My hair continues to look healthy.
(See other pics for just how bad it looked: Can you spot the receding hairline?) Ugh! It actually looked worse than this—but I couldn’t bear to take more pics!
I lost my hair starting in 2016 after taking about ten different antibiotics for an impacted sinus. A month after taking the last antibiotic, my hair began coming out in clumps. I’ll never forget one of my worst days.
It was October 2016. I was getting ready for a salt scrub treatment at a fancy spa in Scottsdale. I had an hour to kill so I took a steam shower. It was there where clump after clump after clump of hair began coming out. I was so distraught AND embarrassed. I cleaned the mess up and threw away the hair covering an entire full-length towel. I was sick to my stomach.
Just Wig-gle It a Little
I was desperate to get hair back on my head—even went wig shopping. One expert told me: “You’re in your late 50s, not growing hair anymore. Get used to a wig.”
Not so fast!!
Paging Dr. Rochlin
Enter Dr. Semone Rochlin, a plastic surgeon in Scottsdale, Arizona. She recommended PRP. It’s a treatment that helps generate hair growth.
Yes, please! PRP, aka: Platelet-Rich Plasma worked for me! The doc draws your own blood, spins it in a centrifuge, separating the platelets. Those are then injected into your scalp. And voila. Within days my begins growing again like crazy.

Here’s a list of other things I tried to help my hair growth.
1/Eating more protein-Protein, like this, helps our skin, nails and hair. So, I went from about 20% protein a day to almost 30%.
2/Amla Powder-Amla is a strong Indian antioxidant also known as Gooseberry. I’ve been drinking it in water every morning for about four years.
3/Less Stress-I’ve tried hard to keep my stress level down—through eating well, exercising and mindfulness. Click here to read how to do that.
4/Hemp oil-I’ve been using Sativa Springs Hemp Essential for about 20 months now. This is an incredible hemp oil. It helps me sleep, calms me and it’s making my hair grow and even look healthier. If you order any—make sure you use this code for a discount—Code: LyndaHammond And this brings me back to PRP. I really do think it’s helped me the most. Dr. Rochlin recommends a total of three PRP treatments. Each one is an in-office procedure--quick & relatively painless—think bee-sting sensations.
I’m so incredibly grateful. I thought my hair was gone for good.
I love visiting Dr. Rochlin. The office peeps are professional & friendly—especially Lola, the doc’s Sheep-a-doodle. Lola helps to keep patients like me, calm!
Now is a really good time to go see the good doctor. Dr. Rochlin is running a deal now on PRP. So, you’ll save some $$. Today, my hair is thick, shiny, healthy & growing again! Yay.
Dr. Rochlin helped me at a time when I was discouraged & hopeless. At 58, no wig for me! I have plenty of my own hair and continue to see new growth.
Make it a great day!
