I don't know why a bunch of clip on extensions make me feel more confident than I have in a good 5 years. 5 years ago I was pregnant with my 1st daughter. 30-35 LBS. can make someone feel ugly. Then lost some hair, got pregnant again, lost some more hair ,got pregnant again, lost some more hair. This is the longest I have gone without being pregnant. I'm trying to watch what I eat as best as I can. I started working out everyday about 5 months ago. But, still everytime I take a group photo I feel like the ugly one in the group. Its my freakin hair. It looks like I have nothing there in pictures. It's soo thin and fine already, without loosing 1/2 of whats there!

Now, I have these long fake extesions that just clip into my hair. And now when I Iook at pictures of myself, I actually feel sooooo much better. People keep telling me, they look good, but they think I look good with my short hair. That I don't need them. Are people jealous of my fake long hair?? Or do they really think I look better with a bunch of strands on my head? My best friend is a pretty honest person and she loves the fake hair, she says I remind her of when we were in highschool, when I had long hair.

I guess the most important thing is self confidence? If I feel better inside about myself and actually like the way I see myself in pictures now, isn't that the best thing. I even think if I lost enough hair to where I would have to get a wig and just shave it off, I think I would like that better than my nasty real hair anyways. And it would probablly look more real than the extensions! Whatever people think, all I know is, is that this is the best picture of me and my husband in 5 years. I love when he doesn't shave his face, so I made him not shave last night. And I look soooo much better than if I didn't have my lovely, best thing in the word, took me 1 hour to put them in last night, fake synthetic hair!

I can't really see the pic good cuz it's all stretched all long ways...maybe it's my computer resolution or something? I dunno. But I can kinda see how it would look. I bet you look beeeeeautiful. :) You're very right, all that matters is that you are happy and feel good with yourself! I am so so happy that you are happier now. :)

I"m considering extension, but I don't know where to go or how to use them...If you have any suggestions, I would appreciate it.

These look great! I love that you have the confidence to try new things and make positive changes! We can all tell that you are positively glowing in this photo!!! Who cares if they are real or not? I wear fake hair every day and hold my head high and smile :-)

Do what ever feels right for you. I think the extensions are sexy and very flattering!

Do you know the brand of the clip in extensions? I have been thinking of them myself.
