Hair loss due to chemotherapy is especially devastating for women, many have been quoted to say one of the worst parts of the experience. Once chemotherapy treatments are completed, women are anxious to return to a semblance of normalcy, i.e. getting rid of their wig and looking like themselves prior to a cancer diagnosis. A wig is very uncomfortable, especially as hair begins to grow back, and in some cases impossible to wear.
A lovely client visited our salon looking for a comfortable solution that would allow her to (1) help her own hair grow without damage and (2) a more permanent solution instead of removing a wig daily.
Our goal was to give her a natural look without using glue, tape, or sewing, which causes stress to the new hair follicles. Most of our guests seek hair loss solutions at about 1 to 2 inches of new hair growth and often seek the help of hair extensions. Hair extensions require more than 1 or 2 inches of hair to cover the attachment area, therefore, a combination of a hair topper and hair extensions makes a perfect solution. The hair topper is lightweight and covers the hair extension attachment. The best part is the hair topper is gently attached with our own method that will never damage natural hair and requires maintenance every month or so based on our guest's hair growth.
Below is our client before and after,
We also used our Veila Pull-Thru hair extensions, which are the gentlest extensions in the industry, known for not causing damage. They are very comfortable and require maintenance every eight weeks plus or minus. We have worked with both our hair toppers and Veila hair extensions for several years and they are proven successful.
Once our hair loss solution was in place, our beautiful client was in tears! She felt the most like herself after her challenging health experience. Cancer is scary, and our brave client endured s a horrific experience, we were elated to help her on her way to living a long and healthy life.
If you, or a loved one, is in need of a hair loss solution that will safely help hair to grow back after chemotherapy or radiation, we are here to comfort you. Our work is a labor of love, and we know any of us can be stricken with this diagnosis, our approach is with compassion and honesty.
Hair Loss background
With Alopecia Areata, fungal infections, and other autoimmune diseases, thinning hair by Trichotillomania removes hair follicles by physical means. At Noelle Salon, we cover the various approaches to hair solutions to treat hair loss, female pattern baldness, balding spots, and other conditions to which you lose hair. At Noelle Salon, we focus on hair growth techniques.
Hair systems and hair extension maintenance is part of the journey while wearing them. For Trichotillomania, as our hair grows they both will loosen, and service is required. The difference between a hair system and hair extensions for Trichotillomania clients varies based on the location of hair loss.
