Having tried my best to see my hair in a mirror and feeling I was never seeing it well enough to gather a good opinion I finally asked my husband to look and tell me what he saw. I hesitated doing this as I hate to point out the "ugly" parts of myself to my husband as he never finds them on his own and, he tends to sugar coat to spare my feelings. He is a good husband. Still, I really wanted to know. So, he looks and says "here and here" re: thinning areas and at one point I go, "what, I wasn't aware of anything there." Here he has found an area larger than any I had known of previous. I'm now honestly so sad and wondering how any one out there decided when was the time to go the next step? The next step for me would be wig. For me go that step and likely never go back. My husband says no, I still have lots of hair on the sides and quite a bit on back; it is on the top that it is getting thin enough that it is tough to style and the wind is my enemy. I see the warmer days ahead and the social events that usually come with warm weather and it just feels too hard. Too hard to worry about wind, hairspray, etc. The nanogen is pretty great but it obviously still does not provide hair to style and my "comb-overs" aren't very pretty. Anyway, how did those who went the next step to a topper or wig, how did you decide when? Thank you very much.
