Appointments for hair loss and alopecia clients
If you are experincing hair loss or alopecia, we understand that this can be quite dawnting time for you, but we are here to help you in every way possible. The first step is to make an appointment with us. All consultations are on one-to-one basis in private surrounding, allowing us to get to know you which enables us to discuss your options. We will inform you on the pro’s and con’s of both synthetic and human hair wigs which will allow you to choose the best option for you and your life style. We will also go through how to wear and maintain your wig.
You are more than welcome to bring along a family member and or a friend for some support.
Appointments for chemotherapy and radiotherapy clients
After it has been confirmed that you are going to experience hair loss due to the chemotherapy and or radiotherapy, it is imperative that you contact us as soon as possible for an appointment, as many will experience gradual hair loss between 14 to 16 days from the day you start your first treatment.
Choosing your wig before hair loss starts is advisable for two reasons:
- We can see the style and colour of your hair, which will make it easier to find the appropriate wig that will match your original look.
- Hasty decisions regarding wig choice can be made during treatment and as a result, some clients may rush the process of choosing their wig only to realise they have made a rash decision and may be unhappy with their choice.
If you have already started your treatment and hair loss has occured, that is ok. If you bring along a recent picture of yourself this will allow us to see the style, the colour and texture of your hair.
