I just saw that you were wearing a top piece that blended with your existing hair. Are you still using that type of piece and how has it worked for you? I think that might be my best bet for now. Was it clip in or bonded? Sorry for all the questions, but you know how it goes.
thank you so much for the info - the other two options that you mentioned can you tell me more about them and where to get them. I am so desperate I would probably try anything my husband wants me to get hair extensions, but I am afraid the extra strain and trauma to my head and hair will worsen the hair loss more quickly. Thank you for all your help
I have a very widened part and am thinning so badly I have very little hair left but cannot bring myself to shave it, over the last six months, I am very interested in the lace top, can you explain it to me. I was recently diagnosed and am very new to this and would appreciate any information you can give me. thanks
Joanne, in your post in FPB, you said, "To take advantage of the hair at the sides and back I now have a 9x9" lace hair system with injected lace on the top.
This blends so well with my own hair and hides the see through bit on the top of my head.
I go swimming, gym etc wear my hair up and down - it feels like my own."
Can you tell me more? I love my wig, but the ability to go swimming, to the gym (which I really need to do! LOL) and to be able to wear hair up and down is a VERY exciting idea. I too have some ok hair at the sides and back, which blend in nicely for my wigs. But how does the lace hair system work?
Hello and welcome, Joanne!
I know how hard alopecia can be; I have had it for about 30 years. Let me know if you need help or support. One thing that you might be interested in is my book, written for women, called "If Your Hair Falls Out, Keep Dancing!" (It just won two national awards!) It has a lot of good info in it, it can answer many questions, and it's a fun read, too. You can find out more on my page. It's available on Amazon.com, and on this site under "Bookshelf."
Let me know if there's anything else I can do! I am here to help.
