If You Can't Make It, Fake It! (Or faking it until it grows back!)
So, until my hair grows back, I am going to continue my normal regime and wear a volumizing extension on a few days I wear my hair down. I love wearing my hair down but due to the shed, I feel my hair does not look its best and as a result, I have been wearing my hair in a ponytail or snood. However, with this lightweight hair piece, my hair confidence will be given a major boost!
The extension is made of human hair and comes on a 8-inch long weft with four small clips. The hair itself is 10 inches long.
Today my stylist Corry refreshed my red color and colored my new extension to match. He also trimmed it so it would better blend with my own hair and he also taught me how to properly place it in my hair.
Now, this is the back of my hair without the extension:
Here is a front view with the hair piece in:
Nevertheless, I am going to tough out this re-growing process. I am not going to let it get to me any more because stress makes hair fall out! I also realize that at the end of the day, hair is hair. I count my blessings that all I have to worry about is thin hair!
But, I do acknowledge fully that I let that element of vanity get to me. When I see women with thick tresses, I do feel a pang of envy and wonder but in the end, I know I am going to be fine. I can already see new hair growing back. Up close, the new growth looks like tiny, pale blond sprouts. (New hair tends to come in pale and then develops its pigment as it grows out in most individuals).
Until my hair is filled in, I am going to rock out the fake (albeit human) hair. Like Corry once told me, "If you can't make it, fake it!"
