"I started losing my hair in middle school which was very embarrassing. Many of my classmates at that time were really mean, which motivated me to search for any solutions available. At that time, Minoxidil was the only thing available and it was very effective. By high school, I was taking Finasteride and Minoxidil together which had completely restored all of the hair I had lost. I continued to take this combination throughout college. As I got older, the effectiveness of Minoxidil and Finasteride decreased. I stopped taking it about 5 years ago, which led to significant amounts of hair loss. It reached a point where I needed another solution. That’s when I learned about Shanna Moll and her studio."
"I’m lucky and grateful for my prognosis, but there is still a shortage of resources when it comes to permanent hair loss from cancer treatment. Every time I looked in the mirror, I was reminded of the toll that cancer had taken. I didn’t feel young, or like myself, so I started looking for help. I was blown away to find that Shanna Moll Studio is one of two places in all of Texas that’s certified for CNC hair systems. So I went to meet with her, and we talked about my different options. She treated me with a lot of care and concern, and she made me feel that she was truly invested in me from the moment I met her. She wanted to make sure that I had a hair solution without compromise, and that’s what we were able to do."
"My mother has always had very thick, straight hair. So to see the waves come through was delightful for both of us. She’s not alone. Many women experience a temporary change in texture from straight to curly — known as chemo curls — and even color in their post-chemotherapy hair growth. But why? One theory is that chemotherapy drugs cannot distinguish between cancerous and healthy cells, like those that are responsible for hair regrowth, so it destroys them all. Most chemotherapy drugs attack rapidly growing cancer cells, but because the cells in our hair roots also grow quickly, they, too, are affected by chemotherapy drugs. As the drugs slowly leave the body and regrowth begins, changes in hair texture and color can occur. Generally, these changes are not permanent — as in the case of my mother whose hair returned to its very straight texture, much to her disappointment."
“I started to notice my hair was thinning on top when I was in college. I began using a powder to cover up some of the sparseness, but that got all over my bathroom and face. I also used Rogaine for a long time, but only a few hairs actually grew from that...we found a hair replacement center in Dallas. They told me that I didn’t have enough hair and they shaved it all off. At this point, I was so upset that I didn’t care anymore. For almost 3 years I let them shave all my hair and put me in a full-cap wig. I was about to give up. I didn’t know what to do anymore other than cry to my mom. I obsessed over my hair – all I’ve ever wanted was to feel normal, to not itch all the time, to not worry about it looking like a wig, etc...." Then she found Shanna...
"I lost all my hair and 25 pounds. I gained the weight back, but I ended up with some permanent hair loss and my hair was thin and damaged looking. I struggled along with barely-there hair, but then I met Shanna. My experience with Shanna has been amazing! She is passionate about her work with people like me and it shows in how she treats her clients. Shanna tries to find the right solution for each client, not just what she has available at the moment. I have used the Cesare Ragazzi CNC® System since early November,... [my system] has been on for almost 6 weeks now... a huge pro is that I have a full head of pretty, shiny hair that looks like my natural (younger) hair."

"While I had helped many clients with thinning hair through my expertise in hair extensions, I started feeling drawn towards helping those with profound hair loss. I noticed an increasing number of people coming in with severely thinning hair and realized two things. First, I felt a tremendous amount of gratitude to be able to help people in much more serious situations than some of my usual clients who just needed a cut or color. Second, that if I was really serious about specializing in hair loss solutions, I needed to receive training. And so began the start of my journey in helping those with hair loss solutions and I’ve loved every day more than the last!"
