After 3 years of cutting my own hair because I was embarrassed by my hairloss I finally went to get my hair cut by a professional. Since my hair started falling out I have been too ashamed to sit in front of a mirror and have someone else touch my hair...all those people starting and judging me. Last week I decided that I was probably being paranoid and that I should just get over my fears and I did. The result is great! My hair looks so much thicker in my new bob style. It was still a bit weird to have strangers see my hair how it really is, but I tried not to think about it. At some point I will have to shave my head and wear a wig, but until then I should just make the most of what I have now :)

I always feel like a million bucks after seeing my hairdresser! It's like I can forget about the stress of thinning hair for a short while. So worth it. I am getting closer to the bob now too. Still manageable but not sure what the future brings. Glad to hear about your new found confidence! Enjoy!

Glad you ended up getting the courage to go. I always dread going to get a hair cut but end up loving it after. I even started feeling comfortable enought to bring the hair powder I use to fill in my spots. I give it to the hair dresser to sprinkle in for me and I try to think positive.
