Hi everyone. This will be my first summer needing to wear a wig. I am extremely anxious. I have read a open cap is better? Are they more uncomfortable? I have truly been through so much these last…Continue

Need help! So many questions regarding wigs

Posted on February 3, 2016 at 5:00pm 34 Comments

Hi. I have recently lost my hair over 4 months. Its not coming back. I am distraught. I am having a very rough time wearing wigs esp. synthetic. I purchased a human hair wig and its pouring rain today. I was afraid to wear it outdoors. I wore a bandana and I look awful. This is pushing me over the edge. How do you cope with this? It broke my heart to take off my hair last night and put on a stand. This is making me want to die. I cannot go bare as I have scarring and its not for me. On th?e…

hey Dianna... try a Lace front wig .. they breath more..  I really love the site I get mine from and it'll tell you what wigs are good for what... I get mine from Wilshirewigs.com    check it out I have a long one and a medium length one i'll wear when my husband and I go out.. not use to long as I don't like hair in my face so i'll pin it up.. I usually wear short... but seriously they look real the lace front makes you look like you have a hair line... and thanks for the friend add... I hate this also but I just try and deal.. every time I look in the mirror I see just eyes nose and a mouth it's not me I don't see my red hair I use to have.. my husband tries to be supportive but he just don't get it it's not that easy it's very stressful he's the only one that's seen me au natural.. not even my family cause I know they'll look at me with pity.. I'm very private about mine I could never go out without my hair but I have been know to go out with my hat on lol when we're just running to town....it's just something we have to deal with when people say it's just hair no I've heard people say they'd die if they didn't have their luscious hair... I have no eyebrows or lashes my eyes get stuff in them all the time and no now hair just as bad... our hair does a lot....just hang in there I can't say it'll get better but the people on here understand what ur going thru and offer lots of support.. Hopefully there will be a cure some day soon...... take care and if you need to talk I'm here

Oh, my.  I totally understand.  My own hair needed nothing, wash, dry and go.  Stayed perfectly straight, I never styled it.  But that was ME.  Someone else's HH ...well who knows how it behaves after washing, or on a humid or rainy day. I might be shocked.  I also don't want to have to pay a bunch of money for styling tools for a wig that may or may not last, and tools that I don't know how to use anyway, as I never did.  And to have a style cut into it, what if the person does a horrible job?  It's not like it is going grow back again....LOL.  I hate perma tease also. I like my hair flat, that is ME.  They don't really sell FLAT wigs..because no one else would want to look like that.  They probably want a style like out of a salon.  It is FL and hot and I think wearing a "styled" everyday would just look plain ridiculous....and nobody has a good blonde shade....this absolutely sucks....

Dianna, hello.  Have you found any answers  yet to the dilemma of finding a decent wig to wear? Think about me, I am in FL, can we say HOT?  It is getting closer and closer to the time when I must wear a wig daily, and even to work.   I don't know what to get.  I have so many synthetics, and I don't love any of them.  I just want to look like ME.  I don't know who I am anymore and who I should look like.  Also, being blonde makes it much harder.  I am looking also for HH but I just don't know where to find something affordable that will last awhile....so difficult.

Hi Dianna 845,
I am actually on alopecia world because my teenager has female pattern hair loss. I am tracking the latest treatments (topical jak inhibitors) because it may work for her condition.

About wigs: I have been told that wigs like follea are less hot, and can be put up in pony tails easily. Also, I think freedom hair is out of Australia and it's hot. Perhaps you can ask Australian group about these wigs in hot weather. Hope this helps!
