Racoon International number one in hair extensions has set up a heavily subsidised programme to provide an alternative to wigs for women suffering from medical hair loss. ...More >
The Racoon International ’Hair in Recovery Programme’ will offer a tested, approved and trusted hair extensions service that is structured to be both accessible and affordable to as many women as possible.
Racoon has developed a unique training course that offers a specialized service to people who have lost their hair due to chemotherapy. Research to develop this specialist training and service has been conducted under the guidance of Iain Sallis A.I.T Consultant Trichologist who has clinics at three Nuffield Hospitals.
A pilot scheme is being launched by the company which is seeking 100 women to take part in the programme. Once the pilot is completed, Racoon is planning to roll out the service nationwide through its network of 5, 000 appointed salons. It is also hoped that the service will eventually be offered through the NHS. Racoon International will subsidise 70% of the cost of hair and their unique bonding system to the patient, and all Racoon salons will reduce their hourly rate for application and maintenance visits. Racoon say that the cost of a full head, including application, will range from £155 for 10" hair to £170 for 12" hair. The hair is reusable and with regular salon care should last the patient between 6 and 12 months. Ethical sourcing of the hair is guaranteed.
Full consultation prior to application, care advice and instructions post application and regular salon check up visits will ensure that the patient’s extensions, existing hair and scalp are kept in tip top condition.
