Why our Hair in Recovery programme is so important to us
Losing your hair as a side effect from chemotherapy, or because of a medical condition, can be an emotional and difficult experience. At Racoon International, we’re hugely proud to be the only company to offer a specialised Hair in Recovery programme for clients suffering from medical hair loss.
Our programme offers human hair extensions specifically for people who have lost their hair following chemotherapy, who have androgenetic hair loss or who are suffering with fine, thinning hair.
This unique service helps clients to regain their confidence and boost self-esteem. Not only can you achieve length and volume; but you can create texture and depth with highlights and lowlights; or construct a new style by adding layers or a fringe.
Racoon Hair Extensions are scientifically proven by independent trichologist Iain Sallis M.I.T not to damage hair, provided they are applied and maintained by a Racoon-certified expert and the aftercare guidelines are followed. Our Luxe Bonds are applied weight for weight, so there is no strain placed on the hair, making them kind, gentle and damage free.
What’s more, we’re delighted to be able to offer a subsidy on the cost of the hair, bonding and aftercare products for people registered on our Hair in Recovery programme.
Hair in Recovery client Michelle says: “Losing my hair to chemotherapy was one of the worst things about having breast cancer. It felt like I was losing my identity and confidence too. Thankfully, six months after treatment, my hair was long enough for extensions and after researching, I discovered Racoon’s Hair in Recovery system. The Luxe Bonds are totally invisible and looking in the mirror, seeing myself with lovely long hair again, made me cry with happiness.”
Client Daniel says: “My hair is really fine and I’d not really heard of men having this sort of thing done. At first I was apprehensive, but after seeing the result I am ecstatic. I am still in awe of how brilliantly the colour matches the hair I do have and some people think I am just styling my hair differently. They have given me the confidence that I had lost. You truly have an amazing product.”
