Well, step one, I have booked flights. My hair is thinning and while I still have a reasonably manageable amount, I can tell it's just getting thinner over the years - overall and in hair strand size. I'm going on an educational trip to Flora in Los Angeles to look at toppers and hair pieces. I am so tired of having my hair cut at just the right length with just the right amount of layering because without more volume there's just not that much I can do with my hair. I have an aunt who ended up in wigs through loss and I worry I'll end up there eventually. I have 2 goals for my visit - research generally, what might work for me down the line. Secondly, I have a HUGE fancy pants red carpet do to go to in LA in a few weeks, formal gown and all and my bio hair is just a bit of a let down to the look. I might just see what I can find that will work for an updo or to improve the situation more immediately. Any tips, words of advice, comments about Flora in LA specifically, would be very welcome. I'm as nervous as heck! Thanks.
