Has anyone had success with these treatments?  Did your hair grow back and stay?  How long does it take to work?  If you did not use these treatments, what did you do, if anything. Thank youContinue

I'm taking my first flight since wearing hair. I'm so paranoid because the sides of my wig have bendable tabs which are probably metal. What should I expect going through security?Continue

Hi I love your Follea, it looks great on you. I have a gripper too mine has been cut a bit shorter, I love the length of your style. Can you tell me if it was cut from the 6 inch? I’d like the same style and length for my next one.

Hi Michele,
Well, I'm actually just the 'bitch on the back' my husband drives and I navigate, but yes, I ride and mostly use a helmet. NH is a state where you don't have to, but I do except on REALLY hot days. I have couple of older vacuums which I use under my motorcycle helmet or my ski helmet. I usually wear a shorter one as long hair tangles so much in the wind. One great thing is that when I take my helmet off, my hair isn't all flat and stuck to my head like it would be if I had my own hair or a wig with 'holes'. It stays fluffy! I have occasionally worn just a do-rag under my helmet if it was a super hot day with humidity, but usually, I wear one of those older vacuums and my helmet. Once in a while, I've gone without the helmet and just let the wind whip through my hair! It's a great feeling and it stays on super. There is also a great type of do-rag you might want to check out. They are called Bolt - boltheadbands.com I think is the website. They are elasticized and stay on really well and have a nice tail that hangs down the back. I also wear them gardening. Hope this helps!

Hi Michele, I live in the UK and I am not familer with the wig brands you mention. For years I have used the fashion wigs available in Europe. They are much the same don't fit ie:made to go over people who have hair are hot and uncomfortable . Over the last few months I have been trying to obtain human hair wigs. A company in Manchester "Trendco" made some and they were very poor, the custom made base did not fit and the hair quality was over processed and of poor quality. The most recent have been made by a company in Banbury UK they are better but still not what I would consider to be worth anything like the cost. The caps are not a good a fit as I was lead to believe . I have explained in my first post how the hair tangled on the first wash, I am going back to Banbury next week to see what can be done. I will let you know the outcome.

Hi you!
I have gone to that lovely wig shop in Cherry Creek. Let's talk - you are welcome to call me at 303.514.5066

Hope you are smiling and well - I'm realizing more and more that life is not about the hair we had it's about the life we have.
