Losing your hair can be a very difficult life event. You might feel isolated or like nobody understands what you’re going through. But honestly, more than 80% of people will experience some form of hair loss during their lifetime. So that means you are not alone. Hair loss can occur for a number of reasons--many of those reasons are even out of your control. But the process can still bring about feelings of shame and embarrassment, especially if you feel like your hair styling options are very limited. Thanks to wigs and toppers, you actually do have two solid options for helping to restore your confidence despite your hair loss. If you haven’t considered them before, it’s time that you do. Wearing a wig or even a topper is not a last resort. Instead, it’s a way to take back your strength and prove that hair loss doesn’t have any power over you. Even if you don’t choose to cover your hair, know that your story can be an inspiration and help build courage in yourself and others. Remember, you are more than your hair and losing it should not stop you from living the life you want or deserve. After the initial period of adjustment, many women find that they have tapped into a new reserve of resilience that they never knew they had. They are able to seek solutions to problems that once would have rattled them much easier. So don’t see hair loss as the end. Instead, look at it as the beginning of a new chapter. It’s up to you to decide exactly what the story will be. There is hope, there are options and you will always be the same person--hair or not. The great thing about wigs and toppers is that they’re not just for people experiencing hair loss. They’re for anyone who wants to change their style. So just because you have a few wigs in your closet, does not mean they are a beacon to let people know what’s going on. They also shouldn’t be viewed as a negative. In fact, wigs are constructed so well these days that most people won’t even realize that you’re wearing one. And even if they do, they will never know your reason for wearing one--unless you want them to. Instead of seeing this as a method to cover your hair loss, use it as a tool to showcase your personality and your strength. Whether you choose to go with extravagant styles or keep it as simple and as close to your previous hairstyle, your wig is only as important as you want it to be and does not define you. Some people’s hair will grow back and for others it will be a permanent change, but don’t let it affect your character or hold you back.
