NHS Dr Bhasha Mukherjee a former Miss England winner said womens hair loss seems to be a taboo subject & wanted to share her experience

NHS Doctor Bhasha Mukherjee who became the first British Indian to win the Miss England title in 2019 said

 “There is an insane amount of pressure put on women, especially those in the public eye, to present thick luscious yet always perfectly styled hair all the time. Having beautiful hair is almost an imperative feature of womanhood, so much so that the topic of hair loss in women is a taboo. I’ve personally felt ashamed to talk about experiencing hair loss, a very common occurrence for thousands of young women as a result of the modern stressful, unhealthy lifestyle, harmful hair products and heat tools. I’ve had to wear hair extensions, used eye shadow to cover thinning areas and so many other steps over the years, including during my reign as Miss England.  Female pattern hair loss should be destigmatize and the fact that Watermans is addressing this is a big reason for me to try their products out!”

The company emerged from Gail & Matt’s own personal battles with hair loss. The duo, leveraging Gail’s 32 years of experience as a hairdresser and salon owner and Matt’s marketing prowess, aimed to create products that blend efficacy with high salon standards.
