Did you catch Reallusions on The Balancing Act?

As I mentioned in our last post, Reallusions, a line of premiere female hair loss solutions available only at Santangelo’s in Western New York, was featured in a recent episode of The Balancing Act, a new show on Lifetime Network.  In case you missed it, here is a link to our segment.

The segment couldn’t have come out better!  It chronicles four women, all with different needs, going through the consultation process with Transitions Representative and Hair Replacement Specialist, Darlene.  Two of the four women did not need hair loss solutions for typical female hair loss.  One was suffering from over processed hair and Darlene recommended Laser Hair Therapy as a means of repairing her hair and returning it to it’s original state.  The second woman had very thick hair and Darlene recommended a smoothing treatment while adding a few hair extensions to fill out some areas she had concerns with.

The last two women suffered from more traditional forms of hair loss.  They had circumstances similar to many of the women I see in Santangelo’s consultation office.  These ladies were looking for a solution that would hide top of the head female hair loss.  In both cases, Darlene spoke with the women about their options and made recommendations to find the right solutions for them.

If you are considering a hair loss solution or have concerns about your hair, even if it’s not hair loss related, watch this segment!  The Reallusions line may have a solution to help.  Be sure to tune in to The Balancing Act on August 13 when you’ll be able to see the “big reveal” and watch how everything that is discussed in the consultation process comes to life.

Success Story: Let’s go swimming!

Hair loss affects people of all ages.  I often see young people who are in high school, or college and they have already noticed their hair starting to thin.  Hair loss is hard on a person at any age but can you image how devastating it would be for a child?

A few months ago, I met a 12-year-old girl with Alopecia. For maintain her privacy, we’ll call her Julie.  With a big, beautiful smile, Julie walked into my office wearing a wig.  Her Mom had called wanting to know about wig alternatives for her. 

We sat down and discussed getting Julie into a hair system that was bonded.  I explained that wearing a hair system would allow her to do a lot more without worrying about her hair.  Her Mom said swim was starting at school and it would be wonderful for her to be able to participate without worrying about her hair. 

They decided to join us and a few months later, just before swim started, Julie came in for her first delivery.  Her hair system looked beautiful when she left and for the first time in a while, she was able to participate in swim without worrying about her hair!

A hair system can be a wonderful alternative to a traditional wig.  Many wigs are designed to be taken on and off and they don’t allow you to do things like go swimming, ride a motorcycle or even go out on windy days like we recently had in Western New York.  With a hair system you can live life without worrying about your hair.
