Anna is a blogger who loves to share different 60+ styles and travels. We can know she is a positive person from her normal blogs. On her Instagram,, you can see many beautiful pictures about clothes and places. She’s rare to share about her problem-hair receding.
At her younger age, Anna has great natural brunette hair, here are a few old photographs of me with various hair-styles (taken during the late 70s and early 80s)-have permed, dyed.
As years go by, her hair is going very thin, she took treatment, worn hair toppers and wigs. She has been used synthetic hair toppers for many years. As we know , there have pros and cros for synthetic topper. It’s light weight and cheap for synthetic topper, but human hair topper would last longer than synthetic hair topper.
The topper she wears in the picture is an Amber 12″ silk top real hair topper in G4 medium brunette, which is virgin hair and fabulous quality, and because it is real hair, it means she can style it using straighteners, curlers and even a hair dryer, though on a low heat-below 200 centigrade.

As I hung up the phone, a wave of dread overtook the perfect joy I had just experienced. My oldest son had called to let me know that he planned to ask his girlfriend, his soulmate, to marry him. All mothers pray for this moment-that their children will meet the right person to share their life with. And, I was beyond thrilled about this news. Visions of a perfect wedding flashed through my mind. Suddenly, they stopped abruptly on my head-my hair, actually. I couldn’t see the beauty of the bride and groom. I only envisioned the wedding photos and how I would ruin them with my messed-up hair. That was the way I saw myself-a balding photobomber who ruined every photo, every video. This moment that should have been celebrated turned into panic.
Over two decades ago, about 18 months after the birth of my second son, I began dealing with permanent hair loss. Most women experience hair shedding after they deliver a baby due to changes in their hormonal chemistry, but that gradually reverses itself and they regain any lost hair. It’s not permanent. However, that wasn’t the case for me. My hair just didn’t stop shedding, and what came out never returned. So, I went to see my OB/GYN and she referred me to a connective tissue specialist for an appraisal of my condition. The doctor took a scalp biopsy and told me that I had Androgenic Alopecia-a genetic or pattern baldness experienced by both men and women. It is inherited from one or both parents and can be triggered by hormones at any time after puberty. Hair is lost at the front, top, and the crown of the scalp. The hair loss can vary from thinning to complete baldness. It is estimated that around 50% of women over the age of 65 experience female-pattern baldness.
Now knowing that I had Androgenic Alopecia, I had to slowly come to grips with the fact that most of the hair I lost wouldn’t be coming back. I stopped coloring my hair because I could see that the chemicals in the hair dye caused me additional issues-weakening the hand strands and creating more fallout. Having a fully gray head at that age left me looking older than I was and older than my friends. But, I just didn’t see any other alternative. I struggled to style my progressively thinning hair, pulling it back in a sparse ponytail for many years and wearing fabric headbands to hide my thinning hairline. Yet every day, I knew it was getting worse, and I wouldn’t be able to camouflage it any longer.
As it turned out, the engagement announcement was the moment that led me to search for a resolution to my problem. Hitting YouTube hard, I watched dozens of videos about hair loss, which led me to wigs and wig review videos. Seeing that wigs were NOT the sweaty, molded-cap designs they were in years past, I started to entertain the idea of purchasing one. Certainly, I would have to do it quickly if I was going to find a wig and get used to wearing one before my son’s wedding. I purchased my first wig. I immediately fell in love with her, and she was in a price range that seemed reasonable for a first wig. The day she arrived, I was SO nervous! What if I looked terrible in a wig? I would have to attend the wedding and find places to hide to avoid the photographer. I know that sounds so vain, but women count on their hair to create their look. Without it, you have to redefine your identity. It’s not easy to do without your hair!
Wearing a wig to my son’s wedding gave me courage and built back up the self-esteem I had lost so many years ago. I got many compliments on my “hair,” and when the wedding festivities were over, I was ready to add to my alternative hair collection.
That’s when I discovered UniWigs, specifically the LaVivid Collection. I began wearing LIZ, a short bob with silky Kanekalon fibers. Her color, Java Shimmered, was simply gorgeous! It looked like I had just walked out of the salon with a new haircut, color, and highlights! I also own Natalie in the color Shadow Chestnut, and I adore her too!
It is amazing to me how something as easy as wearing a wig can boost a person’s self-confidence so greatly. I only wish I had known how incredible this was going to feel years ago, not having to suffer so long.
This was my very first wig and I give it 2 thumbs up. Not only was it delivered quickly, it was packaged nicely and came with all the essentials. It takes a tiny bit of handling and brushing to get it just how you want it, but after that it looks great. It\’s got just the right amount of length on it too. — Rachel Feb 05, 2018
I purchased the Almond Frost and I couldn’t be happier! The hair feels so soft and the style is beautiful!! Carrie looks great right out the box! — Sandra Jan 26, 2018
I have to say i really really love this wig its so soft and natural feeling, the color is gorgeous, and it is so lightweight. This wig is also easy to style with hair ties, clips, and bandanas and ive also tried head bands cannot say it enough i love this unit and plan on getting in other colors thank you uniwigs. — Sarah Jan 16, 2018
I just got my Carrie lace front and I am in love! It looks and feels very real and it is super comfortable. Tangling and shedding have been minimal so far. I wore it for over 10 hours the first time I put it on. I ordered it in the color Chocolate-caramel, which matches my natural hair color so perfectly that I didn\’t even have to hide my own edges. I chose this wig as a solution to my thinning hair. I wanted a look that was natural and this wig did not disappoint. I fooled my own mother-in-law into thinking my real hair was growing out! Awesome! I highly recommend this wig. Thanks UniWigs! — Anonymity Mar 10, 2018
I really liked my Carrie Lace front wig in Chocolate Carmel. The hair was very soft and silky, the cap was comfy and oh that color is gorgeous. I felt very vavavoom wearing her. My only problem was just how poofy she is. I think for my petite face, she is a bit overwhelming. — Jodie Feb 24, 2018
Since my lace-front Carrie arrived, I have worn it daily! Partly because of the novelty of new hair, partly because it’s absolutely gorgeous. The cut is flattering, the color is stunning. It’s comfortable, so comfortable I almost forgot to take it off before bed. 10/10 recommend. The color I picked is Brown Spice. — Sara Feb 11, 2018
We never thought about this, we always said that LaVivid Wigs is design for women over 40+ who want to change a look or just her hair color, for white women who suffer from hair loss, but we never thought that, girls also love LaVivid, girls also perfect when wear the LaVivid Wigs. We have said in the past post that maybe we should launch more long hairstyles for LaVivid collections, now it turns out that we must do this, because more and more girls love LaVivid long wigs.
