Yeah having something bonded on would be a bit limiting I guess you're right. I reckon if you're that self conscious about your hair then you should think about a wig - if it is making you upset on a regular basis. If your friends think you're weird then either they're not very nice friends (!) or they don't realise how much you're hurting. I don't know you but I'd be willing to bet that if anything, it's the latter. You seem lovely so I doubt you'd have mean friends! I have one VERY annoying friend who constantly tries to play with my hair - if my part is a bit skewed she'll just reach out and try and straighten it out - I hate people touching my hair. I'm even becoming wary about my boyfriend touching it and I always used to let him play with it and stroke my hair...he still does it but I'm always like 'okkk but be gentle....'
