My hair has been thinning over the past 10 plus years. I have been sort of ignoring it for most of that time. The last couple years, I have purchased cheap wigs to see how I liked wearing it and what it felt like to go out. Well, let me tell you that you get what you pay for. Cheap wigs, and I am talking between $10 and $25, are just that.. cheap. Now, that is not to say you can’t find a deal, especially if you are looking for cosplay or a fun night club look. But for every day wear, to make you feel like a normal person, you have to spend the money. I bought a Forever Young – Roll with it – wig for about $45. It came in on Friday and I just love it. The color is gorgeous, the feel is natural, and the fit is perfect. I actually fooled some people who know me. I wore it all weekend and to work today. I was nervous because I just didn’t want people to look at me all judge-y. But at the same time, I walked around as if it were real and rocked it. I suppose I will have to wear it for a while, since my normal hair is shorter, thinner and graying. Ugh, getting old sux.
It was fun, but I learned a few things about how I want to wear it, how to style it and stuff. We’ll see how tomorrow goes.
Going to try for some sleep now. ‘Nite!
