How do you handle them?  I want to book a massage w/ facial but I don't want to be self-conscious about being "found out".  If I'm going to feel stressed about going, it will defeat the purpose of having a spa treatment.

I would just them to not touch my hair, or be careful around my hair.. They don't have to know what it is...

How are you going to wear your hair when you go?  Don't feel stress that is a time to relax and enjoy being pampered...

^^I was going to wear it down like I always do.  I'm just concerned that when they massage my neck and temple that they'll feel the hairline and nape.  I had an embarrassing experience with a chiropractor who asked me if I was wearing a wig (I was wearing a bss one back then).  He felt it when he was adjusting my neck.Embarrassed

when i get a massage, i just say "please stay out of my hair" and they do. girl, they know people wear wigs and extensions, it's no big deal to them.


but a facial. i'm not sure about that.i feel like, even if they were cautious about staying out of the hairline, i would still be worried about some tape puckering and steam causing liftage.

I'm sure my physical therapist knows I wear something. LOL  As part of my therapy I get neck massages.  Now I just make sure my hair is secured in a bun.  Are you worried about it lifting?  I think if there is a way you can have your hair already pulled back and secured it makes things less awkward.  When its down if they have to go about moving your hair out of the way then anxiety ensues.

^^^Great ideas, ladies!  I can definitely pin it up and tie it down with a scarf.  That way the unit will be out of sight and out of mind,LOL.

I had a massage and facial at this one place I will not go back to.  The woman doing the facial said "Black people don't have such nice hair. That can't be your hair."  Needless to say, I am NEVER going  back (and I didn't give her that great a tip either).
