    Hair Styling Industry Brings Hope to Cancer Patients

    Hairdressers Touch Cancer Patients in Unique Way

    October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the hair styling industry plays an important role with those suffering from this breast cancer. Hair stylists touch the lives of breast cancer patients in a very special way. We literally touch people daily with the services we perform. I just read a story from a breast cancer survivor, that reminds me again how the little things we do make a big difference in the lives of those afflicted with this terrible disease.

    Below is an excerpt from this woman’s most heart-felt story which she credits her wig and stylist for not only being able to accept her fate, but “even be able to laugh at it.”

    “I looked into the bag with complete and utter disbelief. It was difficult to reconcile being beautifully maned one day and shiny bald the next. There was no segue, no gradual change. Nothing in my life could have prepared me for that moment. I lost my grip. I kept thinking how vain, how shallow I must be for agonizing more over baldness than cancer. But it was true; cancer I could handle, baldness I couldn’t.

    After two days in bed I realized I couldn’t spend the next six months in bed waiting for my hair to grow back. I bought a wig a month earlier. I put it on. It looked awful. I cried. I called Raymond, from whom I’d purchased this wig, and he told me to come into the hair salon.

    I didn’t know that in Raymond’s tiny, crowded room where he styled wigs, I would learn to face and accept the harsh realities of breast cancer. I only had one breast, no hair, no eyebrows and possibly no future.  It sounds grim but somehow in that room I learned not only to accept my lot but even laugh about it. And Raymond was largely responsible.

    We joked and laughed. He told me about other cancer clients and their wig woes. I relaxed, grew more comfortable. Looking in the mirror and seeing myself bald became less difficult. I learned how to feel vulnerable and safe at the same time. It was a long process and Raymond was a great facilitator. I’ll bet her never knew how important he was to me.

    Sounds odd doesn’t it? Visits to a hair stylist, a wig stylist, being the bright spots in a cancer scenario. But the intimacy of the stylist-client relationship is legendary; quadruple its intensity when the client is newly bald and the hairdresser is one of the few privy to the knowledge.”

    As a hairdresser, I know the blessings you receive in being an intimate part, in touching lives in such a healing way. It’s an AWESOME job!!

    You can donate used wigs to the American Cancer Society.

    Hair Care Product

    New “Being Sensible” line at a Sensible price!

    Just got the word about this new professional hair care product line by Rusk, called ‘Being Sensible,’ to be launched in October in salons across the country . . . at dirt cheap prices!

    Rusk’s new ‘Being Sensible’ line of professional quality hair care products (Rusk’s signature) will be at completely affordable prices. The line includes three 20 oz shampoos, a Moisturizing Shampoo, Bodifying Shampoo and Nourishing Shampoo and one conditioner, Balancing Conditioner, each retailing for only $7.99! That’s a bargain!



    TIGI Rockaholic All Access Go Anywhere Shampoo Bar 3.53oz. is a big stress reducer for those of you who need to measure out liquids before hopping on a plane. I know most hotels have shampoo and conditioner now, but don’t you always feel you need to carry some anyways? Depending on where you’re staying, it’s not always certain there will be some user-friendly products on hand for your hair needs.

    Thanks to the folks at TIGI we now have this shampoo + conditioner bar that makes life just a little bit easier. Throw it in your gym or overnight bag and your good to go. The bar is infused with sage leaf, sandlewood and henna . . . of which the first two have a great aroma! (However, my memory of the smell of henna for coloring hair, is not an especially good one.) It will cost about $10.00 to $12.00 if you get it online, including shipping. I haven’t been able to find any reviews on it to pass along to you.  And I haven’t picked one up for myself yet but I’m going to be sure to do that before my next trip!
