If you think I look high matinence, you couldn’t be more wrong. I look like I revel in the long hair, the makeup, the blah blah blah. People see the hair, find out they are extensions (which by the way i have no issues sharing that bit of info)and think oh gosh she must be a lot of work to be around. And in some point you are right, I talk alot(out of stress and severe anxiety) and yes I wear makeup. The makeup makes me feel creative. Can’t draw or paint, but am good at painting my face with makeup. Go figure.

As far as the hair goes. Well, there is a real reason for that. A medical and mental reason I wear them. I have trichotillomania.  Which you can read that whole post here. It is basically where people pull out their hair, due to anxiety or stress. Even depression  and other mental illnesses. Birds get it too, where they pull their feathers until bald. Poor babies.

And so, I wear hair extensions to help me with the trichotillomania.  The fake hair (synthetic) keeps me from pulling at my real hair. Wigs can keep hair from growing back and most people with trichotillomania that are bald end up wearing wigs. The hair extensions I wear vary from pony tail clip in, to regular clip ins(just got this set from Amazon,love!)and Halo extension. The halo extensions are the least damaging but sometimes you feel like they are going pop off.

The hair I am wearing in these pictures are Hairdo invisible hair extensions.  They just wrap around the head being held up by a clear plastic wire band.

And I really love them! Buy here.

I know the last couple of posts have been a bit heavy on the mental health issues.  But, I am trying to make a conversation and connection. Maybe if I as an influencer(hate that word but that is guess the term for us now instead of bloggers…) talk about it, more people will talk about their struggles and that in turn can help someone make the decision to talk to a doctor or not feel alone. Sometimes we are not born with the best “village” and that means we have to make our own.
