There are alot of things that I started to avoid before I started wearing hair toppers. Slowly but surely, I stopped wearing my hair down. While I might have been able to fake some volume on the bottom of my hair my curling/waving/something it, there was no getting around that I wasn’t able to get any lift or density up top at the crown. My Bumble and Bumble spray helped to conceal my loss beautifully and added a little bit of thickness, but it was never enough to make my hair look what I considered to be normal. So, for the three to four months leading up to me wearing hair full-time, I constantly had it in a ponytail.
I also stopped wearing any clothing that was billowy. No, I don’t wear sacks…I just don’t know how to describe it. 🙂 Big, comfy sweaters were out because they added to much mass to my body. Shirts that weren’t form-fitting had to go. Why? Because the more I added below the neck, the worse what I had above the neck looked. Hopefully some of you understand that as it’s hard to describe. The more I wore on the bottom, the skinnier my hair seemed.
I’m sure there are countless other ways in which I altered my style to compensate for my thin hair, however, I really realized one of them the other day. EARRINGS! I’m not a huge jewelry wearer, but I used to use earrings to pull in pops of color. I didn’t realize how much I avoided wearing most earrings as my hair got worse and worse. I certainly didn’t want to bring any attention to that area of my body. Besides, any earring that was on the large side would basically “cut” through my thin hair anyways. Now that I have some density on my crown again, I can break out the earrings!
These aren’t too large (maybe 2″ in diameter) but I never would’ve worn these–at least not with my hair down–before I started wearing my toppers.
