Thinning hair causes women to alter their lifestyle?

New Survey Results Reveal That the Effects of Thinning Hair Causes Women to Significantly Alter Their Lifestyle

No offense, but DUH!!! Of course we significantly alter our lifestyle due to thinning hair. Does it take a rocket scientist to figure that out? I used to use products that spent hours to perfect each day! Here are some of the things I tried:  - plan on buying dark pillowcases and avoiding rain showers or you will find it dripping down your face at the most inopportune times. Works in a pinch, but not a long term solution to hairloss. - Forget about wearing white shirts or sweaters - you have brown "dandruff" everywhere and with every headscratch you MUST clean your fingernails...ewww. Again, a short term emergency fix, but I don't recommend for long term satisfaction. - Ok, ok, you caught me, I still use this if I don't have time to color my age revealing grandma colored (Yes, gray...) roots. It's great to brush on to cover your aged roots, but heck, I used entire tubes to try to cover my thin hair and it's like putting mascara all over your head. about sticky hair!

Now? I don't take hours to cover up anymore. Once a week, I have a routine that takes from 30 minutes to an hour. Ever other day during that week it takes me 3-5 minutes to check my hairline and retouch if necessary. Compared to the 2 hours a day I used to spend making my hair presentable  - 1 hour a week is just a gift.

This is how I started:

Get off the "coverup train" and put some new hair on! You can have whatever style you want without worrying about it sliding down your face every minute. There aren't enough words to describe the benefits it has brought into my life...woot "coverup train" has parked for good!

About Babe with a Mane

My natural hair has not been seen for over 20 years. It has hidden under wigs and weaves, under toppik, colored sprays, couvre and dermatch. My growing hair is a significant burden. It takes too much time to try to fix it up to be presentable, too much money to try to fix, too much energy to worry about and conceal. Every day, I used to wish for great hair. Every day I was ashamed of my thin hair. Every day, I woke up feeling confident, feminine and sexy inside. Then, I looked in the mirror at my natural hair and those positive thoughts were robbed from me. My natural hair forced me to feel unattractive, timid and insecure. I know who I am inside and I wanted to project that image to everyone else. To do that, my hair had to change. Women who are bald or have very thin hair, are not considered "socially acceptable" in the general public's eye. I wanted to be considered socially acceptable, my natural hair wouldn't let me. My dream hair allows me to lead a normal life. I wake up to my guy nuzzling my neck while my soft hair is brushed aside. I jump in the shower to wash my hair. I look in the mirror to see a confident and sexy woman, looking back at me. I don't waste hours trying to disguise myself to fit in. I blow dry and curl my hair and start my day with a spring in my step. I don't catch others staring at my thin hair while trying to have a conversation with me. The same confident, self assurance that I feel inside is now projected on the outside. There are no further internal battles between true persona and an incongruous outward appearance. I am finally, after a lifetime of dreaming, able to project an image that reflects the confident, sexy, intelligent, feminine woman I truly am.
