PK Walsh client,
with her full wig solution..
What made you decide to
finally do something about your hair loss?
When I first lost my hair from Alopecia, I was devastated. I was 11 years old and all I wanted was to keep my Alopecia a secret and deal with it on my own. When I decided to purchase my first wig, all I could envision was the type of wig my great grandmother wore when I was younger; the big, puffy hair that did not move when you moved. The first wig I bought was from a wig store that specialized in selling to older women, not an 11-year-old kid. The wig was exactly what I imagined -- big, puffy, itchy, and wiggy-looking.
When I was 18 years old, the wig store I had been going to closed and I needed to find another source. I found a company that specialized in servicing men. My experience
there was not good. I felt as though I was just another sale and another opportunity to make a quick buck. I was dealing with a place that specialized in men. They did not understand what Alopecia was or the emotional aspects of coping with it
on a day-to-day basis. At this point I was desperate to find another place to purchase my wig. A friend recommended PK
Walsh, and I haven't looked back since.
What was your experience?
I was very nervous about going to another place for my wigs. I was very sensitive about my hair loss and did not want another bad experience. Once I went to my first appointment, I knew it was the best decision and experience I ever had. Not only did I receive a high quality wig, the personal service I received
went beyond anything I could have imagined. PK Walsh made me feel so comfortable and made me realize that I
was not alone. There are many other women out there with Alopecia
and hair loss.
Anything else you want to add?
Don't be afraid or embarrassed to do something about your hair loss.
You are not alone. It is amazing the different types of hair
restoration and replacement options that are available today, and PK Walsh will work with you to determine what will best suit your personality and your lifestyle. I am so grateful to have found
Kathy and Nikki. I just wish I had known about them when I was 11 years old.
