When I was a little kid, I loved getting my haircut. Every time I would sit in that chair from the days of my bowl-cut to my regrettably getting frosted tips, each hairdresser would consistently say, “Oh my! Your hair is so thick and beautiful! I bet your mom and sister are so jealous!” The first couple of times it made me embarrassed but then it was a silly little thing I was proud of and found gratifying. It wasn’t a groundbreaking ego trip for me and the only time I really thought about it was when I would go get my haircut every 3 weeks because it grew so fast.
Fast forward to my late 20s and here I am putting off getting a haircut as long as possible. Why? Well, let’s just say I am no longer Aaron Samuels and my hair doesn’t look sexy pushed back. Do I look like Tommy from Rugrats? No, but I definitely don’t have lush, thick hairy anymore. I worry about hair loss, a trait that has plagued some members of my family.
My hairline has definitely receded some and it’s thinner than it used to be. I don’t like styling it certain ways because it looks a little more sparse in the front if I push my hair up. A lot of people have body image issues at some point in their life and most of the time you have two choices: either let it be or do something about it.
This is the first time I haven’t felt in control of my body because I have been lucky to have good health and fitness has always been a part of my life.
My father passed away from cancer when I was two years old, so I only have pictures to remember him. Before he got sick, his hair had receded and thinned out. No one in our family has gone completely bald on my mom or dad’s side, but it has always been something I have been nervous about. Do I think I will eventually lose my hair? I don’t know, but I’m not going to sit around and wait for hair loss to happen!

Keeps made it easy and fast to get the information I needed to take back control. An easy, quick health questionnaire and three photos is all you need to have a actual doctor reach out to you. A real doctor means you get services and products backed by real science. That doctor then provides a prescription and a treatment to get a handle on your hair. There is no obligation to buy these prescriptions following the questionnaire, but Keeps localizes all the information and makes the process seamless and private. Even more, Keeps makes it affordable to tackle your hair loss. For me, Keeps has restored my confidence and given me peace of mind. I can't recommend it enough for people like me.
