Hello, I am Melanie Beauchamp, Founder of Ulu & UluLife.
I noticed that I was losing my hair. Clumps of hair were falling out and 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 and 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 was nothing that could be done and then failed to respond to any of my follow-up calls or emails. I sought a second medical opinion which was also 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? Therefore, I started at the logical place-nutrition. I researched every vitamin and nutrient that was FDA proven to support hair growth.
Next I set about researching, measuring, shopping for and compiling my very 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 realized that I was so much happier. I was so inspired that I wanted to share this product with other women and from there, Ulu was born.
