How Did You Know It Was The Right Time To Start Wearing a Wig? [Video]

by Y on January 9, 2014

To wig or not to wig, that is the question… and a very personal one indeed. I arrived early for my shrink wrap appointment and thought I’d make a little video on a question I get asked quite a bit. Watching the video back, I think it’s a little babbley, but here it is anyways 🙂

Happy Thursday to All!

I can’t thank you enough for this video! I was going away for a short trip to see some friends I haven’t seen for several years and I was agonizing over whether to wear supplemental hair. I still have some hair but it is very thin and I spend so much time trying to conceal my hair loss. I’m going to do it! I have a clip in topper that I will wear. I’m going to be brave and do what I need to do to feel better about myself. Thank you so much for this! I can’t believe the timing. You are an angel and just as beautiful!

Your wigs always look so great. What shampoo do you use? How often do you wash them and do you put any product on them?

Sorry for all the questions ..

Thank you for this video. I’m currently at the stage of thinking about getting a wig – I’ve even emailed a few places, but can’t seem to get the courage to go to them yet for an appointment. Working on it for sure. But your comment of “Seeing myself for the first time again” really hit home. I’m sure I will cry at that point, because being myself again is so important.
ps. I know people have said this, but it doesn’t even look like you’re wearing hair. Amazing!

Hi! I was wondering how you handle the heat with your wig? That is my biggest concern!

Hi! You are totally inspiring! I have watched all your videos and it motivates me to get a wig too! I also still have hair, but it became really thin and dry..I live in LA and went today to Milano wigs…It was ok, but I had the feeling that the wigs did not sit very well on my head. Watching your videos – I am very tempted to go to Follea…Were the differences huge between Milano and Follea wigs? Thanks!

Thank you so much for this video. I’m 28, and I have been losing my hair for 10 years. I hate thinking that this is the time to start wearing hair for the rest of my life, but like you said I’m beginning to feel uncomfortable with my appearance. Thank you for taking the time to discuss this sensitive issue.

Thank you for being a life saver Y… literally. Because of how gorgeous and natural your “girls” look, I went and got myself a beautiful wig, before I really needed it. Like you, when I got my wig fitted right, I felt like myself for the first time in a long time. Funnily enough, the wig seemed so much more “natural” to me than my current bio-hair. For now, I only plan on wearing the wig on extra bad hair days, or special occasions – but it is such a relief to know that if I need to look like my best self, I can do it. Suddenly life seems far less miserable. And I would never have thought to take this step without having seen your shining, bouncing, lustrous example! For anyone contemplating a wig, my advice is don’t hesitate to see what your options are. Wig-wearing doesn’t have to be an extreme commitment, and can even be a very glamorous thing!
