Life On A Borrowed Bike And Hair Loss Transformation

I was taught the meaning of hard work as a little boy growing up on a dairy farm. I would wake up early in the mornings and spend the hot summer days working outside. When work was somewhat caught up, I would have time to ride my bicycle.

Between five brothers and sisters, we all shared one bike. Riding a bike on the farm was different than my friends riding their bikes in town, since I only had our gravel yard and driveway to ride on.

Many times when I got to ride the bike it was after it had rained and the gravel was muddy, or at best sticky and soft. My bike didnt always have fenders covering the wheels, so I would get a streak of mud up and down the back of my shirt. Sometimes I would get creative and attach a piece of cardboard to the bike frame with a clothespin, allowing the cardboard to stick into the spokes. It caused what I thought was a really cool sound the faster I went, the better it sounded.

I recently had a bike riding experience. I was in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, and a friend of mine asked if I wanted to use his bike while I was there. Unlike riding my bike as a young child, I was freaking out about all the traffic, even being in the special bike lane. The bike lane was narrow and drivers in Ft. Lauderdale honk at everyone, including those on a bicycle, so I was always on the edge of my seat (no pun intended).

Maybe you are wondering what biking has to do withhair lossandhair replacement. In my mind, they are both examples of transformation. When I started my business in 1976 we were only cutting and styling hair, but when I lost my hair I started to look for options. Sadly, my only option was to wear a taped-on toupee that never looked real and felt like I was wearing a cap. As time went on, I started to transform my business and was able to design very thin semi-permanent grafts with human hair that are styled just like natural growing hair.

The transformation continues with new trendy styles andtechnologythat allow us to renew self-confidence and let people live full lifestyles.
