Getting back control

Best Comments, Horror Stories

I just wanted to say to all of the hair wearers out there. Get rid of the fake hair. I wore a hair system for 6 years 24-30 and about 6 months ago I went natural. I tell you it was the best thing I ever did for myself.

I know what it is like to worry if people know you are wearing a piece I know what it is like to be mad at Mother Nature because it is “too’ windy or sunny. I know what it is like to be with a bunch of people at a bar or out watching the game and an HCM commercial appears on TV (and you feel so uncomfortable). I know what it is like to be waiting between new systems because you are hoping that the next one will look better than the one you have on. I know what is like to regret every starting with the fake hair thing and knowing that you have to keep wearing it for the rest of your life even though you really want to take it off and throw it in the trash. I know what it is like to be scared to take the plunge and take the hair off. What will people say? Will they laugh? The answer is, I don’t know. But what I do know is that after the 2 days or so of anxiety that comes from seeing coworkers who had not seen the real me or friends who have never seen the bald me comes a new sense of freedom and pride in yourself that I know you have not felt in a long time.

My advice is to get rid of it… live your life as you. Don’t hide. Be proud…remember you got the fake hair to make yourself feel better about yourself and, if now you feel worse, just get rid of it. Everyday that goes by is one day more of feeling insecure. Get back control of your life. People do not make fun of bald men people make fun of bald men wearing hair or using combovers …be free, be you, be bold, be bald…
