|'After the traumatic experience of losing my hair to Alopecia, finding
Murray and Averill was the answer to my prayers.
The wigs that are made by Freedom Wigs are nothing short of awesome. The
suction cap is so comfortable you don't even know you are wearing it, and
with using "real" hair I can now feel normal again.
People are amazed when I tell them I wear a wig. They
don't believe me. My hair has been made identical to my
own hair, with its natural curl. I can do everything with
my wig that I would have done with my own hair. I play
sport, water-ski and ride motorbikes it's just brilliant.'
|From Gary, a Dad who saw his little girl go from panic
'It was the worse thing that can happen, how could my daughter
lose her hair. That word Alopecia! What do you do? Why? How could this happen!
Then my wife with all her tenacity, found it, an answer, maybe. The site
on the web that changed our life is 'Freedom Hair'. Murray and
his team with their caring nature understood what we needed and how to get
it to us. From that day when the last of my daughter's beautiful hair had
to go so the mould could be cast for fitting the fit-cap, making sure it
was all just right. Choosing the hair colour and texture to make her feel
like her again. All was done with professionalism and thoughtfulness. Then
the big day, it arrived. My daughter tried it on. The happiness on her face,
she had hair again. Off to the Salon and back she came looking wonderful.
She can run, jump, do handstands, swim and play sport just like all of her
peers. She doesn't have to worry any longer about wigs falling off or people
noticing that she is wearing a wig. She is now comfortable and confident.
Freedom once more.
Thanks to Murray, Averill and their team of experts. You and your company
have given my wife and me our daughter back. Now her choices about how to
handle her hair loss are up to her. What a wonderful gift. The gift of choice.'
| 'Losing your hair at the age of 13 years for a girl was
very traumatic for me. My life changed overnite from an outgoing teenager
to a teenager that never left her home. The wigs 30 years ago were very
unnatural, made from synthetic fibres not having a very long life span and
very hard to make look natural. I couldn't swim; play a lot of sports in
fear of it coming off. When standing in queues at banks, supermarkets, or
sitting in front of somebody, I was always self-conscious that people could
see the netting to which the hair was stitched on to. My confidence, my
self-esteem and feeling good about myself were very very low. As I am a
hairdresser, a lady came in and asked me to cut her wig.
The type of wig I saw was so real and I asked her where she got it from
and straight away I contacted Murray & Averill, they were extremely helpful,
making me feel totally comfortable and not embarrassed at all.
Within 6 weeks I had my new wig. The minute I put it on, my whole life changed.
I cried a lot of tears. I could now swim, do heaps with the kids. I didn't
have to worry who was behind me anymore, and no more worrying how windy
it was. I had total freedom, it is so life like. Now I feel whole and beautiful,
I can tie my hair up, do anything I want with it. I am so overwhelmed with
what this wig has done for me. I am lost for words. It's been a long time
coming, 30years to be exact. They say good things come to those who wait,
how true that saying is. I can't thank Murray & Averill enough. It has changed
my life totally. THANX GUYS.'
|'Freedom Hair wigs are just fantastic! My wig is
completely natural looking, perfectly matching the colour and curl of my
own hair. It looks wonderful on, and at last I can finally feel like I am
normal walking down the street! No more stares and comments! Freedom Hair's
after sales service is impressive, with a real willingness to help sort
out any teething problems you may have. It has been the most marvellous
experience for me, and I could not be more delighted.
It is an incredible thing that you guys do...an amazing gift that you give
your customers! You give us back our dignity (we look normal!), our privacy
(no more inappropriate questions...and you would be amazed by how many people
are actually rude enough to comment), and our femininity (a woman's hair
is her crowning glory!). I have gone from constantly assessing everything
I do ('oh, it's windy, what about my hat coming off' "Better walk on the
other side of the street as the sun will make my hair look even thinner"
'Get someone else to go up to the counter.... they have powerful overhead
lights in the roof over there') to having total freedom! I regularly have
people tell me my hair looks fantastic and ask me whom my hairdresser is...a
HUGE change from the questions about how the Chemo is going!!!!! I have
clips and bows and clasps in my hair...my husband is no longer afraid to
touch my hair in case he accidentally hurts me or pulls some out.... I look
like a woman! I have riotous curls! Words cannot tell you all how much what
you have done for me has meant! For years I have wept over my hair€for years
I prayed for it to change. You guys are the answer to those prayers....
a blessing I never expected! It is a fantastic thing you all do! You change
our lives.... you give us back our lives.... it is a gift beyond measure!
Be proud of what you do! It is an incredible and blessed thing!'
|Hi Murray. Wow, you should see Libby and the new styled wig. It looks
fabulous, it feels fabulous. She went swimming in it this weekend it still
felt fabulous. She wore it to the school social she felt fabulous and heard
tell that some Hot Guys asked her to dance (her words not mine LOL). You
both outdid yourselves the hair is gorgeous. The new inside bit feels great
and she is finding it very good to put on. Thanks soooooo much. Words really
can't express how great this all is.
|'I've been a customer since 1998, and could never
go back to ordinary wigs!
With your product, I'm very confident about the way my hair looks - I get
compliments and comments like 'who does your hair - it's always so nice?'
If I do tell anyone, they can't believe it's a wig. When I do go to a hair
salon for colouring or product, hairdressers aren't aware it's a wig either
- I really enjoy that. I take care of it myself- no weekly salon visits
or ongoing expense.
I just forget it's there - there's no itching or irritation from the cap,
and there's no need for me to bend my head down when I walk into the wind
- I walk with my head up now. I know it's secure and I know my hair will
blow in the wind and then fall back into place.'
|Thank you for the opportunity to express some of my thoughts about my
wig. Having worn synthetic wigs for some years, the new skullcap and real
hair are a complete revolution. I could comment on the ease of care. I wash
and dry it just like hair - and the convenience of dressing.
It is easy and quick to put on and remove. However, the three things that
stand out for me are these: Firstly, it feels comfortable and reliable.
I have been embarrassed more than once when my old wigs came adrift, but
your wig is close-fitting and never shifts, even when swimming or when walking
in bad weather. Secondly, the appearance is completely natural. My friends
and family asked if my hair had grown back! No fabric patches, no frizzy
edges, no dodging the heat when cooking. Thirdly, because of these two features,
I have a feeling of greater confidence I feel comfortable, I feel natural.
I no longer sense a foreign piece of material on my head that reminds me
of my baldness; instead, like other women, I can forget about my hair, knowing
that it's doing the same job for me as it does for other women giving
me the confidence of natural loveliness.
