Wigs Are My Thinning Hair Remedy!

Wigs are the Best Thinning Hair Solution

I always had thin hair. Ever since I was a kid. I remember some boy calling me bald in third grade. I had no idea what he was talking about.  And I stayed none the wiser until I was all grown up. And then it hit me like a ton of bricks. Not only was my hair thin, but I was full on bald in some spots. And so a bevy of hair loss solutions came into play. They weren’t pretty. In fact, some were down right ugly...if only I’d just tried a hair topper or a wig first, I could have saved myself a world of pain...

I guess the very first thing I probably tried were volumizers.  They come in many forms from shampoo to mousse to powder. I always went for the powder because it was miraculous, but I always overdid the powder because it was miraculous. I wanted to guarantee that I would see something unbelievably spectacular happening up in that hair...Every dang time, I ended up looking like a drugstore doll that had been electrocuted.

Then there were the expensive and high maintenance grow-your-hair-back “treatments”. Oils, serums, special shampoos, foam chemicals...You’d think I would have avoided the chemicals.  But, no, I went for a foam first, thinking I would regrow hair that probably never existed.  I carefully saturated my scalp in stuff I couldn’t even pronounce.  Ugh. Chemicals.  I got fed up when I didn’t see results. My husband thought he did, though. On HIMSELF.

Then I turned to my tried and true colored powders, sprays, fibers, mascara-like touch up wands, actual mascara, and stuff you just hose onto your scalp like your taking a can of spray paint and tagging your own head.  These “color by bald spot” solutions were my best option. And my worst enemy. I remember my head resting on the coach after a steamy embrace with my husband...I got up, glowing with love, until my feelings turned to severe embarrassment as I spied a BIG dark spot of hair color powder where my head had touched the cushion.  Worse? I couldn’t get it off. It’s there, facing the back of the coach in exile, but haunting me still...

My point is, I went through a lot to come to one simple solution... Wigs are where it’s at for me. I don’t have to hide my bald spots anymore (wigs are so realistic now that people are constantly mistaking them for my bio hair!), I have freedom of expression (what color or cut do I feel like framing my face with today?), and it’s easy and quick (wigs are a super fast way to the perfect hairstyle! Just put it on and go!

    You described my situation perfectly. The first time I made the commitment to walk into a wig store was an epiphany! And the stylist was right, only my girlfriends really noticed. Now, I have a lot of high quality synthetic hair wigs in a variety of lengths and colors and a lot of wig stands. I just choose a color and style, shake it, put it on, finger comb it and I am out the door.

    I get lots of compliments on my ‘hair’ and sometimes I share that it is a wig and sometimes I just say thank you.

    Under my wig, my head is shaved and I rock that look too. There are a lot of woman who have lost their hair, many to cancer, I am lucky, just female pattern baldness. But when I see a woman struggling with very thin hair, I share my story.
