I wanted to give a little update on the wig I purchased. I know most of you have seen it on my Facebook, but for those who didn't I wanted to make sure I talked about it here for those that might have to pick out a wig and are having trouble finding one.
Here is a picture of the one I purchased. The hair on the sides is not my hair, but the wig.
The problem I was having is that I don't have big hair, I don't even have a "style" to my hair. I've had the same hair since high school. I don't use hair spray, I don't have layers and I don't have bangs....it is just boring. lol! Well, the wigs were just too fancy for me. They all had styles and I felt like I was drowning in hair every time I put one on.
I went to a place in Brentwood, TN called "The Wig Shoppe" and the woman there told me she had something that I would probably really like. She was VERY helpful. It is called a "Halo". lol! I hate the name. Anyway, as soon as she put it on, we (Kevan, my parents and I) thought it was perfect. There is no "top" to the wig. So, I will have to wear a bandana, hat or scarf. Otherwise, you will see my bald head. :o)
The best part, it won't be hot! When trying on wigs I've realized they itch and they are hot. Because this one doesn't have a top to it, it will be a lot cooler. I did purchase a couple scarfs to go with it, but they were pretty expensive. So, hopefully, I can find a few cheap ones. :o) Otherwise, I can wear a ball cap or hat of some kind.
The worse part of looking at wigs is that for my length of hair they were running between $200 and $400. She even put a wig on my head that was $4,000!! This wig was less than $100. Perfect!
I'm sure when I'm at home (I work from home) I won't wear a wig. So, this will just be for when we go out or go to church. It is fast to put on...just a little headband that goes over my head. So, I won't have to worry about it taking a lot of time for me to fix. I love it. I had tears in my eyes after she put it on because I finally felt like this was me.
Thanks again for all your prayers. I wanted to find one before my surgery so I would be all ready when chemo started. I'm ready! God blessed me with the perfect wig. :o)
