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 we need to place so much emphasis on hair and not other style changes? If I get new boots, no one notices. If I get a hair cut, almost no one notices, but get new hair???EVERYONE notices! In fact, every year as I go through the process of adjusting to my hair, I also notice other women (and occasionally men) with hair additions.
Somewhere deep inside we have developed an insecurity about hair that just does not apply to other style changes.Funny thing, I worry more about adding hair than I do about losing it now. I have lost my hair so many times that I no longer even notice that it is thinner. To me, that is a gift. Worrying about both losing and gaining hair at the same time would be overwhelming for sure.
Now, if I could just find a way not to worry about wearing hair life would be perfect.
