Eric always saw his hair as an expression of his personality, so when he began battling hair loss at 18 years old, he simply didn’t feel like himself anymore. His confidence suffered, and within a few years, he went from being relaxed and fun-loving to shy and insecure. He shares, “I was always in the back. I was trying to avoid pictures. When I was going out with friends, I was more quiet... I wasn’t trying to make friends. I was always feeling different.”

After trying a variety of shampoos and products, Eric faced a sobering realization — there would be no quick fix or magic cure. He grew depressed, and worried that his battle with hair loss would hold him back from experiencing life to the fullest. Then he found HairDirect. He remembers, “I chose to work with HairDirect because I wanted to have control.”

Being able to order and maintain a custom hair system from the privacy of his own home provided the sense of control Eric needed. Once he experimented to figure out which materials and styles were right for him, wearing hair became a normal, comfortable part of his everyday life. Eric refused to compromise his interests and hobbies for a hair loss solution, and with an HairDirect system, he doesn’t have to.

Now, Eric hopes to encourage others that wearing hair isn’t intimidating. He shares, “If you do it step by step, you take your time, then things are really easy to follow. It’s just something that you will normally do. It’s part of your routine. You don’t really think about it. … It’s something you don’t have to be afraid of, because there’s always somebody who can help you out.”

Eric didn’t want a hair loss solution that would hold him back from enjoying an active lifestyle. He says, “I refuse to change anything in my life. I refuse to have to compromise…” With a custom hair system from HairDirect, Eric found a solution that allows him to continue enjoying all the things he loves. He shares, “I’ve been swimming, running, sweating, [playing] sports. I think people worry about that, because you don’t want to change your life for your looks, and you don’t have to. You really don’t have to change anything.”
