Lucy's Story

When I had my first daughter Molly eight years ago, I had not been warned about post-partum hair loss and had no idea it was a problem facing 300,000 women a year.  

It was such a horrible experience, I lost handfuls of hair each day and clogged the bathroom plug on numerous occasions. Losing my hair really knocked my confidence and I found it really scary.   

The more I spoke to other women the more I realised that hair loss is a huge problem and one that we tend to suffer with in silence. 8 million women in the UK suffer from hair loss at some point in their lives and there are many causes. Stress, anxiety, over-styling, hormonal fluctuations, menopause and nutritional deficiencies can all cause hair loss – as well as it now being one of the symptoms people can experience post Covid. 

I furiously researched for an antidote that could stop the shed and help with regrowth,  but found nothing that spoke to me. It made me determined to create an ultimate nutritional supplement that would feed follicles at source. My background is in nutrition and supplements and I was fortunate enough to come across an incredible ingredient called AnaGain™ which is derived from the small but mighty pea shoot.  
I spent the next two years working with nutritionists and trichologists to create a world class food supplement with AnaGain™ as its central ingredient - for which I’m proud to say the Hair Gain range is now famed. 
The creation of Hair Gain has been a truly personal journey for me. I don’t ever want hair loss to be embarrassing or stigmatising for any women and I always like to share my experience and pictures of what post-partum hair loss after the birth of my children was like so they know that they are not alone and do not need to suffer in silence.
