“Down To Our Hair!!”

I know that most Blogs keep you up-to-date with what’s new and exciting in the business.  A new product, a new Event, even a new contest or a new concept, but writing this blog I find myself feeling quite reflective and introspective.

Over the past few years I have had the immense privilege of meeting some amazing women.  Women that enjoy my wigs and products for convenience, style and fun, and those that need my wigs for thinning hair, loss of hair or complete Alopecia.

I would like to dedicate this blog to those in women in the second camp the “need” camp.

When I make an appointment for a private consultation in my home for a client, I often know very little of her story.  I know that she needs and wants a wig, I usually know the reason for the need and in many cases I have a forwarded photo of what the client presently looks like, or what she looked like or a style that she thinks she would like to have.  Few come alone by themselves but many are accompanied by a friend or friends, a sister, a cousin, a mother, a daughter, a husband or any combination of the above.

One of my first consultations found me opening my door to a beautiful young woman in her early 20’s who was completely bald but for a few “tufts” of hair that she had chosen to keep.  She had suffered from Alopecia all her life.  A young mother of 3 comes with her own mother and sister and quietly chooses a wig to wear as she lives her life with breast cancer.  An athletic physicians wife who had just been diagnosed with cancer comes early to prepare for what is yet to begin.  A grandmother in her 80’s is helped by her 2 daughters and visiting sister to choose a wig that looks like her own hair.

Each woman and each story unique, each with it’s own challenges and own timetable.  Some stories are to be epic novels with much content and many more chapters to be read, whereas others are short stories with beautiful content, bursting at the seams with love and experiences.

However I believe that all these women, and myself included, have one thing in common and that is that we are all “Down To Our Hair” ….. let me explain….

I believe that there is a great big God that created this universe, He is the one that created the creatures of the deep and flung stars all over the heavens….and He IS in control.  He controls the tides of the oceans and the wind in the trees, He controls even the birds that sing in the morning dawn.

We need not be afraid of what is happening to us because God is in control.  You see God counts the very hairs on our head.   Imagine that!!  Every hair that washed down the drain the morning you go bald has God’s number on it.  Every wisp that straggles upward from our scalp when treatment ends has God’s number on it.

So if God cares that much about the hair on our head, we can trust that he cares for us

It’s all “Down To Our Hair”…..and NOTHING…..not even cancer, can separate us from His loving control.
