Hair Loss Journey- Share your advice/ experience!
My hair loss began in my 20’s following radical neck surgery for malignant melanoma. Due to resultant nerve damage, most of my hair loss was on the right side of my head as a result of nerve damage. I “dealt” for almost 40 years before I finally admitted it wasn’t going to get better.
Once I faced the truth, I researched and chose a wig that looked most like my natural hair, length, style and color. That made it easier initially to go out in public, especially to the office. The staff at wigs.com
have been a great help in expanding and supporting my journey, always ready with tips to make wig wearing more comfortable and secure.
My advice to a new wig wearer is to try to find a wig shop locally if possible to try on various styles. There’s a big difference in caps - lace fronts, mono top, basic caps, hand tied or machine wefts, synthetic and heat defiant synthetic, human hair/synthetic blends. And most important? Be patient and find what makes YOU feel good. Friends and family will have their thoughts and opinions, but how you feel about your new hair is the most critical because if you aren’t feeling it, it won’t work as well.
