"Thank you sallylwess, I think, well this is happening for me anyway- that this FFA can bog one down and everything else goes to the wayside once you start getting involved with treatment and wigs and hairpieces and most of all the sadness, for what…"

Cheryl replied to Minter's discussion When did/do you decide that you need helper hair? in the group Frontal Fibrosing Alopecia
"Minter, I like your idea of a make-up lesson. I do wear a foundation that evens out along the hair line and the rest of my face. I do think there might be some other suggestions a professional upscale make-up artist could help with."

"Sally, Jacq, thanks for sharing- I am finding it hard to convince myself that I need hair, it is such a big step and an expensive step.  But going for a consultation costs nothing and I will learn a lot, so it can't hurt I guess.…"
