I hate how much it costs to look normal.
I can't go wigless, I have a combo of Trichotillomania and AA, I have HUGE patchy bald spots mostly on the top of my scalp, I'm pale white with black hair, so even when I shave my head completely down to the skin they show up, black patchy spots everywhere, and when I go out in public people look at me like I'm a leper, even go as far as to avoid standing close to me or taking the long way to walk around to avoid me.
Wigs, they are so damn expensive, sure, I can buy a cheapo synthetic wig that will start itching and will look unnatural after a month, even the cheaper human hair wigs wont hold up for more then two month's before they start looking unnatural and kinky.
Even then they still cost upwards of 70+ dollars, and you have to part them very carefully or you risk showing the world your wig cap and making it obvious that its not natural hair.
No I'm talking about the wigs that actually make a difference, make breathing a little easier because you can wear them anywhere, like the full lace wigs, the ones you can pull up and part anywhere and wear just like your normal hair.
and that's the clincher, they cost upwards of 300$ for a basic quality full lace wig.
300+ dollars for something everyone else on this planet can have for free.
SO simple, just a full head of hair.
It makes me want to grit my teeth, kick the dirt and scream to the sky that its not fair.
It's not fair that I can't look normal, and feel comfortable at the same time because of how expensive it is, It's not fair that the people who claim to help will suck you dry of any money you have.
I spent 2200$ on a "Solution" from hairclub, I'm still paying the damn thing off, it was a stupid toupee that they glued to my scalp and told me to come back regularly for reapplications, then after three months the damn thing FELL OFF, they told me it would cost me 90$ an hour to have it put back on, AN HOUR it took two hours for the first application, then they told me I needed to buy a new headpiece, another 2200$, After six short months of having their "permanent solution". Ouch. Needless to say, I didn't get the replacement hairpiece, as I said I'm still paying off the first one.
I'll say it again, it's not fair! It's not fair that we can't have what everyone else in this whole wide world has just by living, it's not fair that we can't go into a salon and have our hair styled for our wedding day's. It's not fair that we have to spend every single penny in our bank account just to have something like that.
How... How can any person AFFORD 300$ at one time ?!
I guess I'm just acting like a spoiled child, but I hate feeling taken advantage of.
