Can you describe your hair loss?
My hair loss is generally in the front, struggled with that probably since I was 25. It went out really quick. I used to have a lot of curls and a lot of hair. For me, I was always with a lot of confidence and then my confidence just went down. I thought, okay it’s my hair, it has to be my hair.
I researched several hair loss solutions, butI didn’t think I would get the long-term result or look that I wanted.
The first step was looking at pictures of hair replacement, because I knew I could achieve any look, there was nothing that was going to stop me. Once I found a style I liked, I reached out and started the process.
What would you say to your younger self?
Always live and love yourself as you are. I wish I had told myself that, because I would not have been so unhappy with how I looked and my appearance.
How did hair loss affect you?
I was constantly wearing a hat, so nobody really knew unless I was going into a pool or didn’t have my hat for some reason. For me, it was more self-confidence. I was like, I'm too young for this and wasn’t ready for it myself, mentally.
What changed that you didn’t expect after hair replacement?
I definitely notice people checking me out a lot more and I'm getting more compliments.
What advice would you give to others?
One piece of advice I would like to share with people would be, there’s always a solution to anything and everything out there.
