I'm very new to all this. Though I started to lose my hair 6 months ago, I managed to ignore it until about two weeks ago. Now it seems like it is gaining speed, though I might just be truly looking at it for the first time. For now, one can't really tell as I still have enough of my own hair to cover the patches. But I think the time is coming...I want to be prepared. I have been trying to research, but it's all new to me. I have two specific questions. First: How does one shave one's head? Can I do it myself? Second: Does anyone have a wig they truly love? I appreciate all the wisdom and support on this site.
