Her journey to a change began in 2003 when she was in college studying to be a Veterinary Technician. She was stressed, not exercising and not eating properly. She started gaining weight and noticed that it was having a negative impact on her body. After joining a weight loss program she lost 70lbs but over the course of a few years, and several other attempts to keep the weight off, it eventually crept back on.
In 2008 she decided to do something more aggressive. Several years before, one of her family members had a successful gastric bypass surgery and Catherine began considering the option for herself. With a team of Doctors leading the way she began the process of preparing herself for the changes her body would go through. Her Doctor also explained that hair loss and thinning hair could be a potential side effect of this procedure, but she felt the benefits outweighed the potential costs and in May 2009 she had the procedure.
Just a few months after she was starting to feel good. Her body was changing and she was happy with her decision but she also noticed her hair had started thinning. The front and the crown started to get so sparce she considered purchasing a wig or wearing a bandana 24-7…until she came across Santangelo’s website!
Catherine came into my office and wanted to know her options. We talked about Hair for Life and how wearing a hair system could really change the way her hair looked. She decided on the spot that she wanted to get started and a few months later, she came in for her first delivery and left with a full head of hair. Here’s what she had to say about her experience:
“I felt comfortable at my consultation discussing my hair loss and my expectations. The consult was very professional and I was very happy with my options, the pricing and payment options. I have been very happy with the whole hair system process. The hair stylists have been great. I enjoy the process and also the fact that the system can be cut, colored and styled any way that I want it!…All in all I have a happy ending…I have achieved and stayed at my goal weight (I lost a total of 115lbs) for 2 years, I have great hair thanks to Santangelos, and I am busy planning my wedding!”
Now in 2012, Catherine has a new life. She has the body she’s always wanted, the hair to match and she’s found someone special to share her life with. Congratulations Catherine on committing to change, achieving your goals and on your upcoming wedding, we can’t wait to do your hair!
