Posted on August 24, 2009 at 11:36pm 3 Comments

I am new to this and dont have alot extra money to spend on a wig so i want to make sure this is the right decison for me. so now the questions: Are they hot? are they comfy? are the secure? can you straighten, curl them? do they look natural? are the hard to apply? what is the best adhesive if you want to wear for a week at a time? how do you care for them? lol i know it is alot of questions but im sure you all understand. thank you for taking the time to reply:)

hi,

well yes i like it but it does get a bit hot for me at times. the hair is awesome and looks real i think. go to the reps sites and you can view what others look like or join the group on here for vacuum wigs
they do take several months to make as they have to find hair for you. you get to pick color texture etc. the price is a draw back but add up what you spend on your other wigs etc and see if that would work for you. i think!! that they start at 2700 and go up in price from there.. it depends on how long you want it to be.
here is another thing to think about as your preggers
a big weight gain or loss can mess with the fit so i've heard so if your going to lose a lot of weight maybe be wait to get one but ask your rep for sure. but i think that's why mine may get warmer then most at i was at my heaviest when i ordered. i had just got of the steriods which i gained 30 lbs and lost that plus so i may need at some poit to get rescanned.
feel free to ask away
and can't wait to hear all about the bumpkin

Hey Ashley, supposedly this condition is meant to be pretty rare, what's the chances two people with exactly the same surname having it!? Wierd! Got to be honest, not to excited about the whole prospect!

Take care

Brian

Hi Ashley, I'm doing fine. The weather is finally starting to warm up here - not sure if I'm going to like that. Hate wearing a wig when it's hot. I started wearing scarves out and about recently but I'm still a little uncomfortable with it at times.
It's o.k. that you have not shaved your head yet . If and when you feel like doing it you will - maybe you will never have to and the hair will grow back. Otherwise, I hope that you are doing well.

How's it going Ashley? Have you shaved your head yet? If so, how do you like it?

Glad to hear it :-) I wouldn't have guessed you wore a hear piece from your pictures.

You know I live in the Scottsdale AZ area and a place I used to go to get my hair pieces made (I'm male) ended up making hair pieces for some pretty famous actors. You'd be amazed at who is bald and we never knew it. One elderly male actor who is very "macho", and the other gentlemen we've seen for decades, and probably never knew. It wouldn't be fair for me to disclose their names, but the salon owner showed me pictures of the pieces he made for them.

In any case, your hair piece looks great. And while I'd say being bald is harder for women, women have an advantage over men I think in that they don't need to show as much hairline -- i.e. sideburns, etc. Men in general need to show more hairline.

Regarding buying wigs, make sure you visit or call some stores for "blacks" -- many wear extensions, and some wear wigs (such as my wife). I don't really like the term black ... or African American ... as my wife is from the Caribbean, but in any case check those out and also there is much to be bought on line of course.

You should see how fast my wife can change hair styles!!!! She gets tons of complements. You can see one of her pictures here (www.JoyfulMaterializing.com on the About page), but not in her somewhat shorter hair piece which she wears often now and gets tons of complements. Slightly curly / wavy hair is better for her. If you write me I'll ask her for the name -- it is a very snazzy, modern style (but shorter than I see from your picture).

So glad it went well . . . it will only get easier!

I'm so happy for you. I just knew that your friends would understand and be there for you.
If you decide to shave your hair - try the double sided wig tape. You don't have to use anything to get it off and it holds pretty good, plus as soon as I walk in the house I'm pulling my wig off and then I just put new tape on when I'm ready to wear it again.

Hi Ashley, it looks REALLY good :)
I´m jeolous (spell?) !
It looks really natural to me, but to be a little bit honest you might ge("paint your hair" , sorry I don´t know HOW to say xd) a more lighter haircolor, you look so beutiful in it ;)
But the darker color is totally OK ! :)

Kram (the swedish word for, hugor something like that ;P
