    I have a 'freestyle' topper, so I can part it anywhere. I usually go straight down the middle, but sometimes part it to the side. It looks like a part on a person with really thick hair. I was really worried about the part looking fake, and while it looks different than my bio hair part did it still looks natural.

    My question is for sessa 555. It is regard to bonding. Is there a problem with odor? I work out alot , it helps with the depression, so I was concerned about that issue. I have read about so many options but I really am convinced that this is the best way for me to conceal my hairloss. I work in all elements of weather so security is of great importance. I am in my fourth year and it si becoming quite obvious so I would appreciate your time in regards to this.

    Thank you,

    Should I cancel my order for extensions?

    I ordered extensions and have Stage 1 with lots of scalp showing on top and baby fine hair. But after reading your post, I'm wondering if I should I cancel my extensions. What if I have my cosmetologist just put in one row well below the top?

    Re: Should I cancel my order for extensions?

    I had extensions in Stage 1 and it actually made the difference between the thin scalp and denser sides and back more obvious. I'd take a part enhancer if I would be in that situation again. Meaning: stage 1 AND new to suppl hair. My hair loss hasn't gone beyond stage 1 in the last four years but I changed to full wigs for convenience and style options. I started with extensions, then a topper b/c the step to suppl hair would have been too big otherwise. As soon as I got the topper I was almost ready for full wigs, "acceptance-wise".

    Can anyone recommend a good Hair Replacement salon in Southeastern PA (Phila Area) that offers a quality services with privacy. I am looking for something natural looking, that is comfortable and secure.
    Also, has anyone ever tried Richard Farrell hair replacement systems I just saw some pictures and the hair looks so natural. They are not in my local area but are coming for a promotion seminar. Thanks

    Thanks for posting this! You answered many of my questions :)
  17. I read that bonded lace wigs can last up to a few months within an application, but what about sweating and bio hair getting oily/itchy underneath the wig?

    Hi Sessa, How are you?

    I just read your post on wigs and all. Thank you for all the info. I'm thinking of getting a bonded piece as well, My hair is thin from the front and a bit on the crown. I was wondering if you could please give me your opinion on "re-allusions" Have you heard of it? :roll:

    Thanks Sessa. :)
