8 Months

My hair has been growing out for 2 months now . I am at the stage where I just want to shave it all off again because there is not much that I can do with it. I have very straight hair and it has decided that it wants to stand up tall and strong and will not be tamed!

I’ve tried putting gel in it, but it is not long enough to lie down so instead I had tall, strong and spiky hair. The look was not horrible, but it was not what I was hoping for.  I am still wearing wigs most days so as to hide the mess that is happening beneath it; however my hairline is now popping out at the bottom and around my ears so I have to try to find ways to hide it.

I am so glad that I shaved my head and it is something that I would recommend for anyone who wears wigs full time or is a retailer. I now know the difference a perfectly altered cap can feel, how the heat can get to you when you are wearing synthetic fiber and sitting in the sun, the fear that when people are talking to you they are only looking at your hairline, the look and flexibility of styling different cap designs, and the amount of maintenance that human hair requires to protect that investment.

This has been one of the best things I have done not only for my career but also for me. It has freed me from my vanity and also exposed how strong it really is. The truth beneath the wig is that I love wearing them and I will continue to do so and educate others on how to have a successful experience with their alternative hair.

Oh…and one more thing… NO ONE CAN TELL YOU ARE WEARING HAIR! SO WEAR IT PROUDLY AND HAVE FUN WITH YOUR LOOKS!
