Rebecca Germaine was diagnosed with Trichotillomania at the age of 13 because of which she had a bizarre addiction to pulling out her own hair. From the age of 15, she wore a wig to hide her bald patches.
The 26-year-old was warned that if she continued, her hair would never grow back and she was left dismayed as her big day was just six-months away. What her groom did is totally amazing, he gave him a gift which helped her to live her dream life.
You must be wondering what he gifted to her, read this story and you will get to know true love have the power to do miracle.
She said 'I felt a sense of relief when I pulled out my lashes, it then progressed to my eyebrows. Eventually I was pulling the hairs from my scalp and it just became a habit.'
She further added ''I used to be called things like "baldy" and then when I began to wear a wig it changed to things like "wiggy", Even at the age of 23 in a night club someone approached me from behind and pulled my wig off one night."
Rebecca felt so self-conscious that she would sleep in her wig.
She told him that she was suffering from Trichotillomania and he has always been supportive about it.
The revolutionary hair mesh, known as The Intralace System, acts as a barrier whilst filling in the patches on Rebecca's scalp where her hair has been pulled out.
Lucinda Ellery, who has hair extensions and hair loss management studios in London, Manchester, Edinburgh, Bristol, Los Angeles and New York, said: 'Hair can be so important to a women's confidence so losing hair through TTM often leaves a woman feeling humiliated so many suffer in silence, hiding the condition from everyone. 'The Intralace System is not a cure for hair pulling but it can serve as a barrier and reminder for the individual to not pull their hair and it has transformed the lives of thousands of women around the world. We wish all the best to this happily married copuple.
