The Story Of Hair Systems
By Patti Wood
The fact of the matter is, a wig looks like a wig. A hair system, on the other hand, is something that is a part of you and is much more natural. A hair system can be custom made or they have plenty of good choices that are available within a 24-hour period. Even if a client only has hair at the hairline, it looks just as natural as real hair.
When I see a new client and she or he is wearing a wig by the time they come to me they are sick of wearing it. They are afraid it will come off and embarrass them and they can’t go swimming with a wig. Intimate relationships are stressful especially when it’s new and the other person doesn’t know about their hair loss problem yet.
In order to attach a new system or hair piece I usually need to shave a part of the client’s hair on top for a perfect fit. This is the most stressful part of getting hair. There has not been one time that a female client hasn’t cried when I prepare her scalp and it is the most heart breaking moment. I know the big smile they are going to have and the feeling they have with the return of their self-esteem and the renewal of having hair, and not having to looking at a the hair loss. My client doesn’t know what to expect and I never forget the pain and loss they feel when that moment comes to shave off the little hair they have to fit the new hair.
After I prepare the scalp I get the system ready to fit their head. Once the process is done the smile and happy tears come. It’s priceless. It is such a wonderful feeling to give someone their life back. That’s how they explain it to me. My clients can pull up their hair in a ponytail and it is blending with the existing hair. Absolutely no one will know until they choose to tell someone; that includes an intimate relationship.
I have a great job. I can change the lives of others and how they see themselves. Who else gets to do that? If you or someone you know suffers from hair loss, look into a hair replacement system. You never know it could be the answer you have been searching for.
