Ambassador Salon sponsors “KIDS GIVING TO KIDS” EVENT

For over 30 years, Wigs for Kids has been providing Hair Replacement Systems and support for children who have suffered from hair loss due to medical conditions.

Wigs for Kids has provided them with hair replacement solutions at no cost to children or their families.

Aqua Salon Spa of Raleigh, and Roszetta Pringle, Med-Hair Loss Specialist, are reaching out to the public for hair donations on behalf of Wigs for Kids.

Roszetta Pringle’s passion for the medical hair loss community was inspired years ago by her father’s battle with brain cancer. It levied a cruel blow to his vanity and pride, sometimes overshadowing the urgency of the devastating illness. From the experience, Roszetta garnered deep compassion for the women she served. Conquering the side effects of chemo and radiation became her passion, but for many women and children suffering the devastation of hair loss, it can became unbearable,

Custom Hair Replacement hair loss solutions, has private service suites located inside Aqua Salon and Spa. CHR hair loss solutions provides complete confidential consultations on Mondays & Tuesdays. “For those who are faced with thinning hair, Aqua also provides microscopic scalp and hair analysis. The hair loss technicians focus on preventive methods such as hair & scalp treatments for their clients. Through extensive research the team discovered Dr. Lawrence Samuels, Chief of Dermatology at St. Luke's Hospital in St. Louis who has formulated a line of hair-volumnizing products and supplements called D-Fine”. These products are used and sold at CHR hair loss solutions and are designed to repair damaged hair strands, deliver nourishment and moisture to the hair and scalp, and build healthier, more voluminous hair.

Roszetta says some common hair thinning usually has a chance for regrowth. "We start by educating women on the do’s and dont's of over-using chemicals. We encourage them to stop self- diagnosing their hair care products, and to simply see a professional for guidance. These steps could make it possible to regrow the hair they used to LOVE. To raise awareness and do something about giving hope to women and children who suffer medical hair loss, we had to make a difference by bringing the community together to work as a team."

In 2010, Roszetta founded “Beauty from the Heart”, a community volunteer service. The goal is to diminish the emotional impact of hair loss due to medical conditions by enhancing inner and outer beauty, restoring self-esteem, and inspiring hope. Each year doctors and nurses from Duke Hospital have trusted and referred patients. Some of our patrons choose to donate money to finance the needed cranial hair prosthesis for the referred patient. On the day of service, hair and spa services are provided free of charge to the recipient. “It’s a rewarding day for all involved!”

The Aqua team launched “Hair Talk” in 2012. The mini-series of educational empowerment consists of dialogue on nutrition topics, life-style health changes, new innovative products, and tips on preventing hair loss & hair management. Professionals are invited to participate.
