It's Hair Loss Support At Its Best
Thank you. I see this is not a new problem. I've just recently been "pat down" on my head. In the future I will proactively ask for private screening. I'm not ready for the scarves or the hat. Now I know what to do. . . so I'll be a little less apprehensive. Thanks everyone. 2013.
Also, I'll be sure to take off the bobby pins. . . I did not think of that before.
I know I commented before on this topic but since it still seems to be an issue for some people and we are talking about it, I fly all the time and I wear a Freedom vacuum. It has aluminum stays at the eartabs. They have never, ever been picked up by the scanner. Maybe it is because they are aluminum and not some other metal? It's been a non-issue for me - but for those of you who know me, it wouldn't be one anyway. Short story - I have to travel with my laser scanner (for fitting our wigs). The wand has a vaguely weapon-like shape so I often have to take it out when I go through security. The TSA will ask me what it's used for. When I say "I design and import vacuum-fitted scalp prostheses for people with alopecia", I get blank looks. So a few times, I've just taken off my vacuum, handed it to the agent and said, "I make these". If the agent is a woman, they ALWAYS say," WOW, can I have your card?" The other people in line gawk but once, I had a guy follow me to my gate and ask about it for his daughter! I'm not embarassed by having alopecia, it's a conversation starter for sure!
