My Hair Replacement Decision

DSC_6303-MOTIONWhen I first lost my hair, I was in denial that it was actually Alopecia Universalis. Once I accepted the diagnosis after wearing an ill fitted synthetic wig, I quickly realized why the hair piece was not working for me. First of all, the hair piece was a one size fits all piece that I picked up from my local beauty supply out of necessity as a result of losing the majority of my hair in a matter of 2 days. Although I did receive some compliments on the style of the piece, one could clearly detect it was a wig. After I purchased the piece and was wearing it, I had complete anxiety about deciding to wear a different piece. After all, that would be a sign that it was, indeed, a wig. I was then on the search for a hair piece that was comfortable, secure and reflected my style. A style in which I wanted to outwardly reflect who I am.

I contemplated the decision to go without hair, but I realized the hair would more than likely not grow back, so I began to look at my outer appearance differently. I liked what I saw in the mirror and had to become accustomed to my new appearance. In my acceptance of that new appearance, I realized I now know my true beauty. My true beauty was overcoming another one of life’s disappointments and challenges. It is such a blessing that Alopecia has no other medical health implications. However, for many reasons, I decided wearing a head cover was for me, and I knew I was on a quest for the perfect hairpiece.

The decision to choose a hair replacement solution was more about me recognizing and wanting to see the person in the mirror I had known for the majority of my life. Unfortunately, it was very frustrating determining what my options for a high quality hairpiece were. It took months of research before I learned of Follea. Once I learned about the product, watched all of the videos, read testimonials and product specifications, I was anxious to see the hairpiece. Once I saw for myself the quality of Follea, I had no doubt that I had found the product I could wear exclusively. The decision is one that I believe accelerated my recovery about my hair loss.
