My life has been finally calm and I have been using the time to just relax. University is done until my exchange and I passed all of my classes. The other day I took a huge leap and cut off my 30cm long pony tail of hair. I'm saving it to see what wig color will match best. So right now I have a really funny haircut... as all my mom did was cut the pony tail off from the highest part of my head.
But I have a real dilemma... I play soccer competitively and I do not know how to cover my head for my upcoming game on January 5th. It's really been stressing me out. Soccer is the one thing that gets my mind completely off my alopecia. I cannot wear a scarf to play soccer, as the referees do not allow it according to FIFA rules. They do not specifically rule out head wear, but anything to the ref's discretion that can be a danger to yourself or another player is strictly forbidden.
I'm starting to consider wearing a wig. What I'm wondering is, are there any ways to make a wig SUPER tight so it doesn't fall off in strenuous exercise? I have to admit, I'm not up for gluing a wig onto my head, but I am wondering what other options I have. What do most of you do to really keep a wig on your head in intense exercise? I was considering buying an elastic and sewing it into the inside of the wig to make it tighter, but I just don't know if the wig will stay on if I head the soccer ball.
The easiest option would be to just shave off my remaining hair and play bald, but I'm just not emotionally ready for that yet.
Suggestions, please? Thanks so much!
