Hair loss- we're breaking the stigma!
When it comes to hair loss, we each have our own story to share. Through this series, get to know the stories of women from all over the world.
We chatted with Claudia, an absolute topper QUEEN (you need to check out her instagram for styling inspiration). ❤️
Where are you from?
Germany! Bavaria, near Munich
When did you start experiencing hair loss?
I don't have hair loss, but I've had very thin, fine hair since childhood and have always been envious of beautiful, long hair. I think I speak for many women who have thin hair or for women with hair loss. You always see the beautiful women with thick, long hair and I wanted that too.
Who was the first person you told about your hair?
I showed my topper to my family first. They were immediately thrilled, as they could not see where my own hair stopped and the topper began. Then I wore the topper to work. On that first day I wore a ponytail to make it look more natural. In response, I only got compliments. I loved it so much that I now wear my topper all day from morning to night, seven days a week, even when I'm alone at home. It's like wearing an outfit for me. However I have always been very open about the topic of "alternative hair". I started with extensions and soon after I wore toppers because the extensions were very painful. The toppers are so comfortable and easy to put on.
How did you find out about Lusta
Through the amazing hair loss community I found the beautiful Lusta Hair. So many women were talking about how natural and beautiful the hair was, so of course I had to try it!
What do you love about wearing hair?
I love wearing toppers because now I can finally create all those hair styles I was dreaming about! I also love that I can style the hair however I want it and it will hold all day long. And it's so quick getting ready in the morning! Clip it on and go! I love, love, love to wear toppers. My bio hair could never look so beautiful.
How has Lusta been part of your hair journey?
The wonderful ladies of Lusta Hair show us that you don't have to be afraid to wear alternative hair. Their daily instagram stories and videos encourage us to wear the hair and show us how to use them. I watch all their tutorial videos and their so easy to follow along at home. Through Lusta I can go through life carefree and with self-confident. Thank you so much dear Lusta team.
What would your advice be to other women with hair loss?
I try to show through my videos and reels that wearing a topper is a fashion accessory. You don't have to hair loss to wear toppers or wigs. Today, almost all celebrities wear alternative hair because their bio hair would never look so beautiful. My goal is to encourage even just a few of you ladies. Don't worry about what people have to say. Do what you want to do! I love the hair loss and hair community and love being a part of it. I have already met so many wonderful ladies and I hope I can get to know you too.
I say thank you from the bottom of my heart and hope that through my story I can help women feel more confident. Maybe I'll see you on my account- @hair_is_fun_toppers_even_more that would make me so happy. Hopefully see you soon! Claudia form Germany
