My hair has been steadily declining for years, and got that much worse since the birth of my son. I am consumed by anxiety leaving my house, obsessively thinking about who might be looking at my head at work, looking for excuses to not go out on weekends, avoiding reflective surfaces... I am sure most of you have probably been there. I know my time has come to take the leap into supplemental hair. I am not ready to go the route of shaving and boding, or an expensive integration system with monthly maintenance appointments, though it's likely these will be in my future. I love the idea of a topper but my loss is too diffuse and too severe for for that, so it seems like a Flora IF worn as a clip in may be the most logical choice. I'll probably contact her next week and make an appointment. I don't live in the area but feel like I need to do this in person and have someone show me what to do with it. Being that I have no clue what I am doing, what should I be considering? What are the downsides of wearing a clip in piece? How long does an average piece last? How difficult is it to take care of, particular if it's curly? Anything else I should consider, do, or not do? I am scared out of my wits; would appreciate any advice...Thank you.
