Norma the Wig

I bought a wig.

Well, those are words I never thought would come out of my mouth!   I’ve heard from many gals that purchased wigs and never used them, but frankly the $300 in wigs is a small price to pay for some peace of mind as my hair sheds more each day.  And honestly, I was surprised with my experience on trying them on.  I know what you’re thinking because I thought it too; wigs seem icky and creepy!  Trust me it is weird at first, but after a few minutes with the wig on it really starts to look natural and the mind forgets what the head used to look like.  I was pleasantly surprised!

But with all of that said, Mike and I have still had many laughs over the wig.  First of all, I had it on a wire wig stand in the bedroom and every time we walked into the room  it startled us; hence the name Norma.  Paying homage to Norman from Psycho; that is exactly what it felt like seeing it on the stand.  That had to change right away, so I found a little nook to keep it stashed away from our view.

Norma is mostly my “hat wig”.  This way I can wear my hair like I used to with hats, wool caps, pony tail, etc.  And then there is Lucy.  She’s still on order.  She’s my more everyday wig which is styled as a cute bob which I really like alot.   I’ll share pics in a week or so.

I’m not sure how much I’ll wear them but it really gives me peace of mind to know it’s an option, because I don’t want to look like I had cancer!!  Actually I’m still holding onto a glimmer of hope that I’ll defy the chemo drugs and the doctor’s words and my MonaVie soaked body will miraculously keep my hair in tact.  But if it doesn’t, I have abundant choices with my wigs, my beautiful hand-dyed scarves from India (thank you Aunty Deb), my warm and cozy hand-knit caps (thank you Colleen) and many, many more hats.

Blog readers meet Norma, Norma meet the blog readers.

    not bad at all!
    this post made me realize that you’re “lucky” to be doing the chemo in the wintertime rather than summer… so many more headcovering possibilities! 🙂

    Jayme chuckled at the Norman reference. It looks great. Can’t wait to see the other one.

    Looks great! Can’t even tell you cut all of your hair off. It will be nice for keeping your head warm in the winter time. I love it!
