QuoteReplyTopic: Integrated system / lace toppers Posted: 24/February/2017 at 8:37am
Hi. This is my first post. I've had thinning hair for years which I managed reasonably well to cover up. I was diagnosed in my twenties with AGA and have basically just got on with it as the NHS mainly seem to view it as not life threatening and not a priority. Although it has been a major blight on my life. I'm now 53 and gone through the menopause and its got to the stage I can't even attempt to cover my hair loss as its getting so thin and patchy. I've now got to the point where I want some sort of hair system be it integrated or a lace topper which I've seen mentioned on this forum. I've came across a well known hair salon in Glasgow - Betty Reilly - which offers both solutions and I was hopping there might be some members of this forum who have used the salon and could give me some advice.
Thanks for your message - it was very kind of you to reply. It made me realise that I've never spoken to anyone about hair loss (other than doctors). For some reason I just couldn't speak to my family/friends etc. Its like the elephant in the room.
Hello, First post. On the back of picking up my first wigs - felt confident leaving the salon but this was all lost when I saw my children who were beyond perplexed when they saw me. Thought I was gearing myself up for a full time option but realise that it's probably not going to meet all my needs, and I don't want my children to look at me differently. I know this is probably a premature reaction but I have lived with this condition for a long time and feel like I need solution that meets more of my needs. Want it to look natural and also to be able to wear full time. Cost is an issue as I'm a student currently. Does anyone have any ideas? I live in central Scotland. Thanks in advance.x
