Well today I got my very first hairpiece. I LOOOOVVVVEEE it!!! I feel beautiful!!! I felt confident in my buffs and bandanas but it wasn't quite me. But today I feel awesome. The first time in a long time. My hubby LOOOVVVES it as well. He has been such a crutch in this whole continuing journey. My hairpiece is longer than I wear my hair but almost an exact match in terms of color. Giselle, my hairpiece sensai, said it well "I guarantee you can go shorter, but length...not going to happen" I honestly feel like a rockstar. My real hair got a cut today to about chin length and continues to fall out, but if this is the default...I can do this!!! This is by far the toughest thing I've had to go through in life thus far, but hairpieces, for me, is a definite silver lining. It's made me realize even more that hair is asthetic and nothing more. We are who we are regardless of our hair condition. Wear your confidence in yourself with pride. I notice that even with my buff on and some makeup...I'll still be my fun, bubbly self...all the rest...who cares. Pictures to be posted asap.

Hey Jenn,

Jenn! I am so glad that you like your hairpiece and that you feel beautiful in it. I think that we, as alopecians, are so blessed in a sense because we are forced to see the world through different, less judgmental eyes, and I think that we appreciate the important things in life (like family and friends) more than others. You are right, we are still who we are with or without our hair- what an amazing, yet sometimes painful, process of self-realization that we get to experience. Woohoo I am so happy for you! Can't wait to see your pics :)
