Thanks to everyone on the boards for enforcing the "stick with it for 30 day rule". I agonized for months over going from a full head of hair (albeit not my own hair as I wore a hair piece) to shaved. When the day came I had all the symptoms of an anxiety attack, but stuck to my guns and took care of business. I'll be honest -- it was shocking to walk by the mirror and look at my reflection -- a shock that didn't wear down until the end of the 2nd week. I posted several questions to this board asking how long it took people to accept their new look and through that "therapy" I stuck it out for the 30 days and boy am I glad I did.
Today is the end of my 3rd month of being sly and I absolutely love the look and the freedom. I'm in control now - not my genetics, not my hair piece, not the hair company, not my hair stylist. I control how I look and I absolutely love it.
If you are a hair piece wearer like I was and are thinking about shaving your head -- do it. Every moment spent maintaining your hair piece, every dollar you spend on your system/products/services, and every moment you agonize over your "hair" is all wasted time, money, and emotions. "Man up" -- take the 30 day challenge -- you can always glue a piece of dead fur back on your head if you decide you don't like it. But as the Men's Warehouse CEO says -- "you're gonna like it or your money back".
