Julie’s Wig Buying Tips

Wig Buying TipsJulie had made a comment on the “Daily Hair Loss Grind” post about her suggestion for the steps to make yourself “wig” ready. I thought it was so beautifully put together that I wanted to share it with everyone here as an actual post on the blog. So here it is:

Steps to make yourself “wig” ready

Read your daily affirmations of the things you are grateful for, what makes you beautiful and strong? Do this for at least one week.

Call your friends and tell them about your “Day of Beauty” excursion and make appointments to get your nails done…makeup, whatever you want.

Locate the wig shop within the vicinity of the places you want to visit.

Write a journal about what it is you’d like to achieve when wearing a wig…create your positive thoughts and believe in them. I used to say, “i’m going to look just like Sandra Bullock with my new wig, I can’t wait” or I’d picture my face in so many different styles…so I new what look I wanted to achieve.

Plan an outfit for your day…wear something comfortable and try on different hats…use makeup lightly and embellish your favorite features.

When you wake up the day you are going, don’t look at yourself AT ALL! Ask your friends if something is in your teeth! Just avoid mirrors. Bring a “before” picture with you and keep it within reach, like in your wallet or pocket. Look at yourself, that’s who you will be again…pick out different styles and try them on..only look at the mirror once, it’s completely on your head! Wear your new look for at least 3 days and go everywhere with in on…Put it away for another 3 days and write about what it feels like for you. Find it within yourself to want change…and then do it.

I have been losing my hair on top since I was 14 yrs. old. I still have hair around the sides and some on top. I am now 53 yrs. old and have tried different therapies. I have female pattern baldness.

Is it too late for me to go on spironlactone, 5% Rogain, and Nizoral shampoo. I was also going to go on Swiss Herbal HRT which years ago used to help regulate my periods. I went on this site and they recommended 5% Rogain, Spironlactone,and Nizoral shampoo as a therapy for women. They also mentioned some other products like Reviogen, the Hair Max Laser comb, Hormone Replacement Therapy.

any feedback would be great

I have noticed that hair loss salons can be helpful but their wigs cost hundreds of dollars. Same with wig stores in the mall.

I have found good quality wigs at the braiding salons away from the mall–in urban areas. Alot of women do have wigs, extensions, weaves etc and seek out these salons and stores for their accessories. You can get everything from a cheap $20 wig to a $100 or so human hair wig. They have pony tails. Expert stylists who can work with your situation. And best of all you will be around other women buying synthetic hair and it’s not such a big deal.

If you need privacy you can also order wigs from online catalogs.
