My human hair wigs give me confidence
by Rebecca Dawe
There are women who are proud to be bald, who are happy to be natural and look absolutely amazing with it. They don’t consider themselves as inspirational, it’s just who they are and they can’t pretend to be anything else.
I am not one of those ladies. Being bald really isn’t me. However, I have a beautiful full scalp tattoo which I'm extremely proud of. It was quite a journey to get to that point. When I'm raising awareness or simply demonstraiting my products I still feel good about how I look.
I’m not ashamed of my alopecia and like those bald beauties I have to be totally honest, I am not courageous, just someone who has learnt to quite like herself. I don’t wear wigs to hide what I am, I wear them because they are a part of my identity. My alopecia doesn’t define me, but it’s very much a part of my life too.
As unbelievable as it may seem it’s totally cool for me; social permission to play dress up every day if I choose to. The fact my hair doesn’t actually grow out of my head is merely a technicality. I know it looks great and it gives me the confidence to feel pretty good about myself.
If you’re not enhancing any part of your look then I give you permission to judge me!
