I just wanted to update everyone that it is possible to enjoy water sports with a wig. We went to the lake this weekend and my daughter went boating and when a friend of ours pulled up in his cigarette boat she didn't hesitate to jump in. He found several boats to race and goes over 100mph. She did not think twice about her wig. She then went wake skating and fell at least 5 times, I was her spotter. She has given up on eyelashes in the water but wears waterproof eyeliner and sunglasses when in the boat. I am happy to report that you can enjoy water sports with a wig on. She brought a spare wig down so, when she was finished she jumped in the shower and handed me the tangled wig. She was dressed before anyone else but of course I had to disentangle the other wig. The lake was so tough last year but she has figured out how to make it work. Don't let alopecia stop you from doing what you love. I bought her a new dress yesterday for her boyfriend's sister's wedding. She smiled and said, "I am going to be so pretty." This means so much to me to know that this is her self image. Alopecia does not have to stop you from having a normal happy life if you don't let it.
