Hair Extensions for Cancer Survivors

At Xtend Yourself Salon it is not just our name, it is our motto, and we try to live by that motto every day.

Extend yourself and your knowledge to others.

Extend a helping hand.

Extend your time towards others who can make use of it.

Extend your talent and gifts to those who need it.

Anyone currently undergoing treatment for cancer can come into our salon in Gilbert for a free scalp cleaning.  For those who want to take control of their hair-loss, we also offer a cleanse and moisture treatment, scalp massage, wig trim and fitting, or a trim up of the hair as it starts to grow back in. Post-treatment, your first cut AND color are also free of charge. We strongly suggest waiting until at least 3-6 months after ALL treatments before using any bleach or permanent colors.

We are also extremely proud to announce that we now offer Chemo Girls Hair Extensions!

Although we can’t provide this as a totally free service we will work on a sliding fee scale per client as well as work with any foundations who can assist in the cost of this life-changing and soul-changing option for women (and men) who are coming out the other side of chemo. You have options. You aren’t tied to wearing scarves or wigs if you choose not to.

This procedure is not just limited to cancer survivors!  This is an amazing way for ANYONE to take charge of what and who they see in the mirror. If you have had hair-loss: thinning due to hormonal imbalances, auto-immune disorders, or even a really bad decision to get that pixie you thought you always wanted and then realized you really didn’t…we CAN help.

To ensure long-term success and your satisfaction, your hair should be at least 2-3 inches long and we will examine your follicles (the bit where your hair grows out of your scalp) to ensure they are strong enough to handle the extra weight. We will also teach you how to effectively care for your extensions during the three months between visits and be available to you for healthy hair and scalp checks every month which we can do either in the salon, or via a skype video call.

The hair we apply can be reused for up to 1 year with proper care and maintenance adding small amounts of additional hair as needed during each tune-up visit.
