Hello, I am Melanie Beauchamp, Founder of CheveuxRx
I noticed that I was losing my hair - clumps of hair were falling out going down the drain! I noticed that I had to clean my hairbrush more often and that I couldn’t style my hair the same way because there simply wasn’t enough hair.
Finally, a friend was doing my hair for an event - she kindly and lovingly asked me if I was aware that I had bald patches and heavy thinning all over my scalp.
I was terrified – fearful.
So, I went to a board-certified dermatologist for help. He told me that I had scarring Alopecia – I was going bald. I was devastated - terrified. I thought my life was over and that I would never feel like a woman again without my hair.
I agonized over what people might think, how would I get dressed up and pretty for special events? Would people think that I’m older than I am would people think that I’m sick because I have no hair? I am single and dating -how would this affect my ability to find my soulmate?
The doctor told me that there nothing could be done and then failed to respond to any of my follow-up calls or emails. I sought a second medical opinion that was of no help. I realized that I was alone in my struggle. I realized that my life would never be the same.
So, I began researching the causes of hair loss and solutions. What makes hair grow? What makes hair fall out? How can I make sure that my body has everything it needs to grow the hair that it grew in the past? So, I started at the logical place-nutrition. I researched every vitamin and nutrient that was FDA proven to support hair growth.
Then I set about researching, measuring shopping for and compiling my own personal twice-daily supplement regimen. I also researched what stimulates hair growth at the follicle level? What stops the follicle from growing hair?
I then created my own scalp topical serum that I used twice a day. Four months later friends and family were asking me about my hair – did I get extensions – what makes it so long and full? Everyone noticed that my hair was growing thick and healthy. They also noticed that I was so much happier. I was inspired to share this product with other women and from there, CheveuxRx was born.
