Ah, where should I start about Mohair Beauty.
I'll start off with a little bit of self-bio. I have an OCD called TRICHTILLOMANIA. ( Trichotillomania (also known as "trichotillosis") which is classified as an impulse control disorder by DSM-IV, is the compulsive urge to pull out one's own hair leading to noticeable hair loss, distress, and social or functional impairment, and in some cases one may even consume the hair. It is often chronic and difficult to treat. )
I've suffered from this for 11 years. I am totally BALD. Just my hairlines are left behind. Since this has caused insecurities for me, I have for years resorted to Weaves, wigs, extensions to cover up my bald spots.
Over the years, I've spent a bit over 10,000$ on weaves and extensions. I've done it all. Full head weaves, tracks, microlinks.... And everything was so costly and was REALLY obvious that I had extenions in, espcially at the top of my head. You could totally TELL that was not my hair. Whenever I sat down and people stood over top me, I just wanted to get up and move away and I didnt want them seeing the top of my head. I was always so uncomfortable and my hair always got tangled like extenions do. I had to brush it out every hour to make sure it didn't look like a cat coughed up a hair ball ontop of my head ( LITERALLY). Not only did the hair suck and the extensions look totally HORRID, the prices were un-believable. I spent 300$ every visit to get the whole head weave put back onto my head. This was every three months. That calculates to 1200 every months, plus buying hair every 6 months which costed about 200 each time. That makes it 1600$ A YEAR, for a total of my hair looking fake and dry. The braids were also done super thick, which made my head look so bulky. Yeah I understand you can go out and buy super expensive hair but you will never KNOW what happened to it, it could not even be real virgin hair! And I learnt this the hard way buy spending a lot of $ on it and seeing that it was poor qaulity as to what I got a Mohair salon. Everyone used to ask me if i had exntesions, a lot of people used to point at the little circular part in the midle ( ill include a picture to show you what i mean) and ask me " whats that? ". When people used to pat me on the headm they would stop and think about what they just felt or some would just say, "WOAH LAY OFF THE HAIR SPRAY!" I was stuck with two hair styles. Keeping it down, or a side pony tail. IT got so boring having the same style for 4 years. Thank god it is over. I will never go back to this every again. Not only was it a night mare, it was also a huge waste of money.
As soon as I got sick of throwing my money away I found Mohair. Mohair has provided me not only with self confidence but they have also made LIFE easier for me, and more affordable.
I feel and look better, I'm not as depressed and worried as I used to be. From Mohair Beauty ive gotten their free flow cap extensions. ( they are sculpted to fit your own head size ) My head now looks like it has a natural part, LITERALLY, even I can't tell that my hair is fake. ITS A DREAM COME TRUE! This is also MUCH CHEAPER ( surpriningly because it looks more expensive ;] ) than everything else I used to settle for. I am saving 1,000$ a year. Every hair on this cap it put in strand by strand which allows me to part my hair line from anywhere I want. ( YAAAAAY !! ) This isn't all of it, you also get a free STYLE with every visit, Free haircut and colour with your first extension set. I am so grateful to have found Mohair Beauty. I can now go swimming, walk in wind withouth worrying about my hair flying off. This isnt the end of it. The staff at Mohair Beauty makes you feel really good about yourself. They are located SUPER close to waterfront station. only a 6 minute walk down west cordave street and you will be there ! They are really poilte, and considering of what you REALLY want. I love the staff, you can relate to them all somehow and not worry about being afraid to tell them why you need extensions. There are always willing to take that little bit of extra time to make sure that you are satified at the end of the day. They use fine russian virgin hair and it comes it pony tails literally cut off the persons head, as is. With this peice, no one has looked at my head and re thought about what was there. I get nothing but compliment. I can peacefully sit down on transit and not care if someone is hovering over top me anymore. When people pat me on the head, they dont notice anything because of how REAL the hair feels. Not once have i been asked, " are you wearing exnteions?" or gotten that weird " is your hair fake?" look. My family also loves it, im leaving less hair on the brush for my sister to clean out. This piece barley sheds hair! Its secured in pretty tight. Also she likes the it looks natural and the fact that I can do more than one hair style now just as much as I do. You can't go wrong, I've boughten high end hair and this was the best out of all of them. I will never go back to anything else. Mohair is the only supplier of this type of hair, also another place in california from what I hear but that's about it. I can not comes to terms with how greatful I am.
I will include pictures of before ( ew ) and now ( YES! ) for you guys to see for yourselves, and I encourage you to call Mohair Beauty and check it out for yourself! You won't regret it :)
