Hello there! I am Jerri. I have had hair loss (thinning) that started in my mid 20s. In the past couple of years it had thinned enough to where it was very noticeable that I was missing hair on top and all around the crown. I started using sprays and hair fibers but even that doesn't help a lot now. Over the past five years I had started toying with the idea of wearing a wig. I bought some four years ago would wear them to work and everyone would look at me and smile, because they could tell I was wearing one. I was so self-conscious and so would not wear it very often. I am now 54 and have reached a point where I am using so much hair fibers and sprays that it too is noticeable. I bought a wig from Uniwigs, the Carrie lace front, but it was way too large for my head. Uniwigs was kind enough to let me return it. I have now ordered a topper to try. I ordered the Claire 12" 130% density. I am hoping it will cover well, not be noticeable, and especially, not fly off my head. I live in Oklahoma and the wind here is ferocious. In addition, I drive a convertible and need something that will stay put! Needless to say, I am terrified of this next step, but I simply HAVE to do something. I am also SO glad Uniwigs told me about this forum! It is a blessing to be able to hear that I am not the only person who has this problem and to hear how others have handled it and see the tips and tricks they use to help with their toppers/wigs! Hopefully once I receive my new Claire topper, it will be the answer. I am saving up for the topper that has the bangs (the Amber) because I have always had bangs my entire life due to a high and receding hairline in front. It is just that I can't afford the price of that one right now and need to do something right away. I look forward to talking to all you brave ladies!
