"Most wigs can be adjusted to fit your head better if they are too large. Sometimes one that is too small can be stretched. You do need the help of a qualified professional, that knows wig caps and can sew. Hard to find these days. "

chris for hair replied to AmberDi's discussion Do you believe the ceramic curling iron is safe for hair?

Why so much emphasis on hair and not other style changes?

Posted on November 26, 2012 at 11:00am 9 Comments

Every winter I change my hair extensions out and wear a wig. With my puny hair, I feel it is best to give it a rest from extensions, and also at the ranch my own hair with extensions does not hold well in the wind and rain.

I love my wigs, but every year it is the same process of getting used to the comments others make about my new hair. Some people are very kind, others not so much. I have learned from past experience that this goes with the territory.

I can't help but wonder why…
