Hi all, As my funky new signature says, I was diagnosed with Androgenetic Alopecia back in February. For a few years now, I've been steadily growing unhappier with my hair due to the thinning, and I'm at the point now where things are still not too bad, but I have to comb carefully to conceal the thinner areas, and it is very difficult to make my hair look decent. All in all, I've grown very unhappy with the way my hair looks, it's way too much of a focus in my life and I've decided it might be time to take the next step and look at cosmetic options. Problem is, I just don't know where to start! From various posts I read here, it sounds like there are a large number of options for hairpieces, which is cool. But to me, this is currently all theory - I've seen very few pictures of how the pieces actually look, I don't know of any hair consultation centres nearby, I am "all thumbs" when it comes to doing intricate things with my hands, etc. So I'm hoping some of you here can answer some of my questions: (1) How do I join wig support? It sounds like a great place to exchange information, ideas & pictures. (2) Does anyone know of any hair consultation centers in the GTA (greater Toronto area)? I'm in Kitchener, Ontario, which is about an hour west of Toronto, but to the best of my knowledge there isn't anything in town here. (3) Where can I purchase products such as Toppik? I've never seen it in salons or pharmacies. Do most of you girls order it online? I think that a product like this might be a good "temporary solution" before taking the plunge into hairpiece territory. Anyway - any help here is greatly appreciated!
