Ryan Pontbriand was the long snapper for the Cleveland Browns for 9 years. He retired officially in 2013. Ryan has also been using Laser Hair Therapy for about five years. He used both the hooded in-office device during off season and the igrow and comb during the season. Here is what he has to say about his experience with laser hair therapy.
I am not a natural blonde and I have been bleaching my hair for over a decade. Unfortunately I didn’t know how much damage I was causing my hair until I started to work at a hair restoration company almost 4 years ago. By that time, my hair wouldn’t grow in length, the ends were fried; my already-fine textured hair had no body or shine and looked completely lifeless.
I first noticed my hairline starting to recede when I was about 21 years old, soon after that I gradually watched my hair get thinner and thinner on the top and crown area. It seemed the older I got the more scalp I saw – and less hair coming in. Hair loss has been in my family for generations, on both sides, so I figured I didn’t really have much of a chance.
To the Staff at Tom Magliaro’s Hair Restoration: I am without words… I am so blessed and so eternally grateful for the people God has put in my path through this battle. Losing my hair was so surreal, especially as a mother of all girls who cried when it happened. But you brought some normality back into my life and my family’s when you blessed me with this beautiful hair system.
I have had some form of Alopecia since I was 7 years old, and completely hairless since 1995 my senior year of HS. I found Tom Magliaro’s Hair Restoration when I was 19 years old and it was the best self confidence boost I could ever have been given. The hair systems are unbelievably natural looking and fit so smoothly.
At the age of 24, I was diagnosed with a severe case of hypothyroidism. Among the many symptoms I fought daily, hair loss was by far the most debilitating to my self-esteem, and confidence in my appearance. After a miserable year of numerous doctors appointments, expensive hair treatments and products, the problem had not gotten any better.
For the last 12 years it has been my pleasure to be associated with Tom Magliaro’s -TMHair. When I initially came to Magliaro’s, I ordered one of their custom human-hair systems, which was made specifically for me. I was placed with Nicole as my technician, who became my trusted stylist and friend. She has helped me every month (sometimes with the aid of Martha, the shampoo tech) with styling and the maintenance of my hair system. Since I became a client, I’ve also had many conversations with Tom, the owner, who is always interested in my progress and satisfaction as a client.
