Hair Loss? Heads Up, Ladies. Here's Help! (cont.)
It comes in three different textures. So for someone that has very thinning hair, you want to get the thinnest topical piece. Nobody will know you're wearing it. They're straight, by the way; they're not wavy. You can curl them if you want, because they're made of human hair. But nobody will know. Trust me.
One more thing that can help is getting personally involved. Now let me explain. When I go out, mind you, all my wigs, "my girls," have names. So if I'm out and my hair may be a little messy, or even if it isn't, my boyfriend will say, "Let me brush the back of Elizabeth," or whoever I'm wearing. The intention here is to join the process, which accomplishes two things. One, she's not feeling so alienated, and two, it takes the pressure off of something being so foreign and being much more innate.
You may want to brush her wig for her. You may want to, after she places the wig on her head, say to her, "Give me the brush for just a second," and even if it doesn't need brushing, fix it for her. And after fixing it, look at her, give her a kiss, and say, "Boy, do you look gorgeous. That's my girl." She'll feel like a million bucks.
I really hope I was able to alleviate some of your stress. Again, call me if you need to. Set up an appointment. I'll be happy to help you.
