Hi, I have been wearing a lace system for almost two years and I am going to have it removed tomorrow. And frankly I am looking forward to it. Lace systems are such a pain for maintenance and costs. I just realized that I am spending as much time worrying about the system as I was used to do about my bio hair, and additionally I am wasting a small fortune! So, the plan is to have the lace system removed, cut my hair short (not too short lol) and bear with the situation keep using minoxidil and hair concealers/volumiser. I also bought a topper with qdhair beauty but I am not planning to use it (unless tomorrow I find out I am completely bold lol). I would like to thank all the people posting their experience, tips and pictures and in particular LaurenEinFL for her blog posts: they have been super helpful. I shall post some picture of my bio hair tomorrow. Wish me good luck!
