Hi wiggers, I need your expertise!Although my hair has grown back quite well since March 2013 (much thicker and curlier than it was before it fell out in Sept 2012) I still have the ophiasis pattern…Continue

Are there any nice, short, 20s-style finger-wave wigs for white women?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Holly Jan 28. 10 Replies

I can't seem to find any 20s finger-wave style wigs anywhere, except for costume wigs in cheap synthetics that look laughable, and nicer, often human hair wigs for black women only. There don't seem…Continue

Platinum blonde full-lace wig over dark bio hair - how should this be done?

Any advice from seasoned full-lace wig wearers? I have just gone and bought a platinum blonde long full-lace, HH wig from ebay. I don't know what it will look like exactly yet. But I am wondering how to wear it. I have a natural grown-out pixie cut at the moment, with alopecia areata gaps at the nape of my neck. Before getting alopecia I was trying to grow my hair out as I had always had long hair and missed styling it... then most of it fell out so I shaved it. Now it's growing out again…See More

Fasting to jump-start your immune system

So I saw this today (yes I am sorry it is the Telegraph, I couldn't find the original paper). 

Fasting for 3 days can regenerate entire immune system study finds

This might be useful to try for those with auto-immune disorders like AA. It can't really hurt, right? Three days with only water is not going to kill you. And just…

Why short wigs are better

Posted on June 4, 2014 at 10:30pm 10 Comments

To all you newbies to the world of wig-wearing: welcome! It has its pros and cons like everything else in life.

Hi Holly,

My PhD is progressing a little slower than I would like. I'm about 3 yrs 4 months into it and would really like to be finished by the end of this year. How's your PhD going?
