I even heard the phrase "whatever you're doing [to your hair] it's not working" and I believe it's because I'm wearing a wig. The wig makes people assume that I've given up and I'm hiding the failure.
- You have no hair
- You may have hair, but it's dry, brittle, and/or breaking
- You don't like the way your own hair looks
- You are pretending or "playing dress up"
- You are lazy
My wig also allows me to have a different look. My relaxed hair never had a cut like this and thanks to the wig, I didn't have to grow or cut anything to achieve this look.
I can't expect people to be supportive of me or understanding. All I can do is publicly speak my piece on this blog in the hopes that it will touch and educate someone else.
