My Personal Journey:
I have Alopecia Universalis, so I personally know how difficult and challenging it can be to live with hair loss. How it can alter your mood, your choices in life, and overall self-confidence. In 2001, I started to experience significant hair loss. Initially, I had small circular bald spots, but I soon realized it was much more serious when my hair began coming out in handfuls. Within three months I lost all my hair and within a year I was AU. I was the person who made every attempt to grow my hair back. I tried everything from endless dermatology treatments to alternative holistic treatments. Eventually I ended up in the emergency room after experiencing a very bad reaction to oral medication that I was taking for my Alopecia. From that day forward, I decided it was time to truly accept my Alopecia, instead of constantly “fighting” it.
I wore traditional human hair wigs, but was never 100% satisfied with them. The hair quality was poor, the cap never fit properly, and it was usually itchy and uncomfortable. Simply put, it felt like a foreign object on my head! Twelve years ago, I found Freedom Wigs and can honestly say it is the best vacuum hairpiece on the market today. With Freedom Wigs, I was so amazed with the comfort and security of the vacuum suction as well as all the choices I had when designing my own customized hairpiece. This was a hairpiece just for me!... not an “off the shelf” wig that everyone else was wearing. I had never met a company before that truly delivered on the customizing and quality promise. The end result was a hairpiece that truly mimicked my own biological hair.
Wearing a product like Freedom has added a sense of renewal to my life. Having hair on my head is very important to me. While hair does not identify who I am, it sure helps my confidence, makes me feel feminine and helps portray the image I want the world to see. Being a busy Wife and Mom raising two active boys/now young men means that “Mom” needs to be active too!! I no longer sit on the sidelines of life in fear of having my hair blown off by the wind, or slipping off while doing activities. Today, I’ve resumed the activities I enjoyed prior to my hair loss… and you can too!
