chillybear, i’m sorry this has been a tough experience for you. i think plenty of hive members have used hair extensions–mrs. lemon, miss spaniel, and i think mrs. champagne did.  i did a quick “hair extensions” search on the site and there were a ton of board posts as well, and i bet there is some good info in there. sorry i can’t be more specific, but i wish you the best of luck, there are lots of options out there and i’m sure you’ll find something to make you look and feel fabulous!

((Hugs)) Doll.  It is so traumatic to lose your hair!

I lost quite a bit of hair last year due to stress . . . seriously (In the beginning, my docs thought I could have a tumor since I have had migraines since I was a kid and had recently lost about 10 pounds (a lot for me)), so finding out it was just stress was a huge sigh of relief!).  It was mostly on the right side of my head, but it fell out centimeters from the roots, and it was almost all of the hair in the middle of that side of my head (does that make sense?).

Since I had hair on the top of my head (crown area) and still had hair on the bottom of my head (at ear level) one of the stylists in my salon that specializes in extensions made me a partial hair piece that clips in to my hair.   I could wear it when I wanted to (like for work and evenings), but could take it out if I was going to the gym or just hanging around the house (or sleeping).  Although I considered getting extensions for just that section of my head, I ultimately decided against it because (1) I didn’t want to have to go to the salon every few weeks for up-keep, and (2) because I didn’t want to risk damaging the hair that was trying to grow back. 

Also, the partial piece was so easy to take care of (an occaisional wash) and easy to style, and when it got uncomfortable, I could just un-clip it and slide it out.
