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.
Elisabeth has the best attitude toward wearing hair and she's such an inspiration to the Lusta community. Read her story!
Where are you from?
I am from New York. 45 minutes outside of Manhattan, a place called Long Island.
When did you start experiencing hair loss? What has your experience been since then?
I started noticing hair loss after my third child but in actuality it was most likely [started] beforehand. I've always had thin hair, but at that point i noticed hair loss.
When I was a little girl my grandmother, who was gorgeous, always NY city stylish, wore a hair piece. She had a stylist come to her home weekly to (im assuming) wash and re style it. Kids can say unfiltered things and myself being one of them would make fun of her hair. Well Karma is a B**ch and here I am at her age and would LOVE if a stylist came to my house weekly to style me 🤣 as now I have her hair loss!
How did you find Lusta Hair?
My profession for many years was a stressful one with deadlines and people looking to me for answers. I would lose sleep and my hair was definitely affected. Family and personal stress also definitely contributed. I went through the gamut of tons of vitamins, lotions, shampoos, you name it I tried it. I even went so far as to have a plastic surgeon inject my scalp with my own blood. Nothing worked!
I had an appointment with my stylist and when i sat in her chair she mentioned to me one of her clients brought a topper to her to trim. She said it was gorgeous and i should check it out. Well the rest is history!! My name is Elisabeth and i have a Lusta Hair addiction!!!
What do you love about wearing hair?
It has taken 10 years off my age. Wearing my MANY toppers, each one gorgeous, gives me confidence and a sense of feeling pretty. You know what they say, when you feel you look good you shine and everything just is better.
What would your advice be to other women with hair loss?
I would advise not to wait. Dive in. If its too thick bring it to your stylist. If it needs a Trim do it. Make it YOU! Why go through life not loving yourself. Im 65 and feel 45. You go around once ladies. Lets love ourselves.
