I’ve been experiencing hair loss in the front of my hair that started about 20 years ago. I’m 44 now. My mother and grandmother also had significant hair loss.
11 years ago I gave birth to my last of 3 babies and during his pregnancy and through postpartum I lost my hair daily by the handfuls. It’s never fully recovered. My hair was everything to me. I’ve been using concealer powder in the last 2 years and overall it’s helped hide my bald spots, but it’s messy and still leaves my hair limp.
I’ve been researching hair toppers on and off for the past couple years. I’ve watched lots of YouTube review videos and it’s given me so much encouragement.
I’ll be completely honest, my hesitation to wear a topper stems from my moms hair loss that was very noticeable when I was a kid. One of my best friends use to tease me about it. She told everyone that my mother wore a hairpiece, even though she really didn’t (I still find that crazy that she said that). That relentless teasing stuck with me and makes me feel self conscious to this day about the term “hair piece”. I feel like I’d be humiliated if those girls ever found out that I’m actually wearing one now. It’s as if they put that out in the universe for me to face as my fate, yes I’m cray cray! 🤣
Anyway I’m here for support and to offer it in return.
