I was feeling pretty good when I started to notice some new hair on my bald spots but then, alas a new spot and this time it is right in front of my hair cannot hide cannot hide. I really dont know what to do now. I hate the way the lace wig looks, I have a weave in now but thats going to become impossible if the spot continues in the front of my hair plus it takes forever to do and is expensive. I am thinking about buying a wig but I dont know if I will like it.

what to do? what to do?

Hello Tamara,

This is definately a hard thing to deal with and can be a bit overwhelming. I myself am nit a fan of wigs either. That is the reason I make my own. I hear lace fronts are a great option it just may have to find one that looks more natural. Maybe you can find someone that is familiar with Alopecia and is able to help make the hair line realistic. It is definately possible. i make hair lines on mine and no one can notice anything and I have AU so it just may be a little research involved.

Try a website called Divaswearlace, I found it yesterday and the pieces look great, there are also some more websites that I would be glad to share with you, dont get caught up on the price you can find a nice one for less than 500.00 and insurance carriers coverage the cost, some are very pretty and undectable, yes you have your challenges with color and texture, put I learned the hard way so I am willing to share as easy way if it can help someone. God Bless.

I meant to mention the lace front wigs that I have purchased have been made of human hair, so you can curl them, flat iron them, roller wrap them, you have several options

Thanks for the suggestions, but a part of my problem is I live in The Bahamas. There are limited resources and people who can help with the lace wig. I think I will look around for a wig that suits me.

Thanks again.

Tamara, I've worn a wig for 46 years and even the beauticians can't tell it is a wig when I go into the shops. I love wearing them! I can give you a lot of tips, but most important, don't get too much hair and if you like the wig with too much hair, find a salon that isn't afraid to thin it a bit. You can find more of my tips or if you would like to chat, please visit www.iwearawig.com. I also can show you wigs that work best with baldness.
