I've been having hair loss for about
5 years. Unsure of why. No one can figure it out. I am hoping it was malnutrition and so will hopefully get better once all of this surgery stress is over. I wear a wig too. I teach 5th grade and my students love telling me which wig is their favorite. I don't mind wearing wigs cuz I like to go shopping for new ones but I'd much rather have my hair back. I really miss it.
