MrsRevolutionize:  My sister in law doesn’t have hair.  I honestly had no idea, until recently.  I would always comment to her how beautiful her hair looked.  My DH recently told me she lost her hair several years before he and I met, and she now wears a wig.  Have you considered one?  I truly, 100% had no clue.  It looks like her natural hair!

MrsRevolutionize:  I have lost my hair numerous times due to chemo and I am currently rocking the bald look. The first time, when I lost my beautiful long blond hair, was hard but everytime since it gets easier. I know it doesn;t compare because eventually my hair grows back but i can understand what you are going through, thinking that people think you are a freak, that they are laughing at you etc etc. 

Most of it is in our heads. Most people are just so self absorbed that they really don’t notice us!

Hiding parts where the hair is coming out can be tricky and it can be easy. Depending on where it is headbands can be great. There are some really funky and interesting ones out there. When my hai is growing in or when I am starting to lose it, I wear more conservative ones for work and more colourful ones in non-work times.

And there are always wigs. There are some beautiful wigs out there and what better time to make the investment than your wedding? You could even rock a new colour?

I did notice when I was doing research that in the USA (not sure where you are) that were quite a few specialist hairdresses that specialise in clients with hair loss. Maybe you could do some research and see if there was one close by to you. They would probably be the best to advise you of what can and can’t be done with your hair.

Good luck and just remember being gorgeous comes from inside.

my best friend start to lose hair after she gave birth to her second daughter, she told me ever since she start using NuSkin.. it slowly grow back.  It’s not cheap though.  I think the machine is around $450 (It does more than hair loss, it’s for facial as well), and you use that machine (it’s very small, a size of your palm) with the gel and rub on the problem area.

MrsRevolutionize:  About one year ago I had medically-induced thinning. Big time thinning that would clog my shower. When I was able to start seeing the “shine” on my scalp, I got really self-conscious. I ended up buying some hair powder to help cover the extra thin areas. I did that for about 6 months.

My hair has mostly grown back but I’ve also chopped it into a pixie cut so that helps too. Having long, thinning hair makes the thinning stand out more. I would perhaps consider a “make over” to included a shorter haircut or perhaps a wig.

Oh and if you have an up-to-date stylist, they might be able to suggest some clip-in bangs and clip-in extensions to make you feel better.
