Hi all,

I just wanted to share that I completed an 8 hour adventure race two weeks ago all while wearing my Freedom Hairpiece.  The race involved 3 hours of mountain biking, 2 hours of canoeing, and 3 hours of orienteering with only a compass through the forest.  The only thing I was worried about was the bear that crossed our path in the middle of no man's land (actually it was the bear's domain).  My hairpiece was secure and more importantly comfortable for the entire duration.  I did not think about it once and we traversed everything from swamp, to rock, to thick bush, to beaver dams.  My Freedom worked beautifully…now on to the next adventure.

I just found out that my fit cap and hair sample are on the way to me!  I had my consultation on 8/18 so didn't expect to hear anything for another month or so - I'm so excited.

My new favorite thing in my Freedom Hairpiece is to do cannon balls off the back of our boat into the water.  I feel like a little kid again....and I do it over and over and over again!! :)

Hi Leigh Ann, There is an amazing stylist named Ashlyn Davis.  919-929-0779.  She is in Chapel Hill!!!

Air neutralizing is skipping the last step in a perm.  After the rinsing and blotting, you leave the hair rolled up on the perm rods for several days until it is TOTALLY dry.  That allows air to "neutralize' the perm so you don't have to put the neutralizing solution on the hair.  This is one of the most damaging parts of a perm so by air neutralizing, you can keep the hair in better condition.  People with their own hair can't do this unless they intend to walk around for 5 days with perm rods in their hair, but we CAN (if we have a back-up to wear).

What is air neutralizing? I've not heard of that. Please.

Hello, my daughter just received her Freedom Wig this past weekend. Next issue, finding someone willing to cut it. We live near Raleigh,NC, does anybody know of anyone reasonably close by? Right now we are planning an 8 hr drive to Atlanta, as that's the closest stylist we can find.

Hi Emily, Yes, but there are some things your stylist needs to know as Rosy mentioned.  We also recommend doing an air neutralizing which I can explain.  Call me at 603-835-6753 or have your stylist call me and I can explain.  We do it fairly often in our salon.

Hi Emily

I can help with that.  The simple answer is yes, but you need to make sure your stylist understands how to roll the hair in the curlers, otherwise you could have trouble with the curl, curling away from the cap leaving you feel quite exposed.  I'm sure Debbi will be able to help you with her hairdressser.

Hi Debbi --  Was going to email to you but thought I would post here so others could see.  Can a Freedom Wig be (gently) permed?  Mine is only nice and kinky the first day I wash it and gets straighter during the week.  Can I have my stylist give some of the top layers a gentle perm, or do you not recommend it?

Thanks!  Emily

Hi Reese

It really is lovely to know that your Freedom Wig is working for you.  I've read through a few of your comments and fully understood that you were having some issues with it.  I also felt that time and turning your Freedom Wig into you was going to help a lot...which it looks to have done.  

As your freedom wig is not growing you will already realise that you can very much dry this beautiful hair out and ruin it, if you are not careful.  Be thoughtful around this as you know the hair you received was precious and difficult to find.  

I wanted to also add, if you are using heat on your hair regularly (it will cause dryness), you can help this a little by using the proper protectants. Which I hope you are doing. :)

You look cute in your piccie.
