Picture this it is 1979 and I am six years old. I am sitting on the edge of the bathroom sink, watching my mommy put on her wig. I watch her slip it over her head which is sparsely covered with wispy black hair. The wig is long, luxuriously curled and when she fits it over her head, my mother is transformed. Her shoulders are held back, a smile appears on her face as she applies her lipstick. Fast forward 40 something years and this morning ritual continued to be unchanged except I was no longer sitting on a sink, but I’d be at the mirror beside my mom and while still mesmerized by her transformation, also feeling a bit saddened by it. My mother, unlike me, never had access to options other than a full on wig to cover her genetically thinning hair.
It was a closely held to the vest secret and burden she carried with her under those bountiful, curls that went on for days, highlighted to the hilt wigs she wore for my entire 43 years on this planet. I wonder how different her life might have been had she not felt that her own hair was THICK ENOUGH to be worn out for all to see sans a wig. I wish there had been more options for my mom when she was younger. So in her honor, keep reading for tips and tricks on how to get thicker fuller hair and the skinny on a beauty product that is TRULY for any woman who has ever wanted thicker fuller hair. And the best part I’m giving one away!
