Free At Last - Sporting Natural Hair

Recommended Posts

Guest

Recently went wig free and began sporting my natural hair.  I still have a ways to go for the desired length of 20+ inches, but that's ok! 

A few things I do miss about wigs are doing hair flips with the longer length wigs, the variety of styles, and the ease of wigs being pre-styled!

I have more hair on other parts of my body than my head so i've grown to love my wigs.  They are certainly easier to maintain that a full head of hair but i would also enjoy the feeling i had as a youth during the 60's when as a hippie i could at least grow my hair and enjoy the feeling even if it brought abuse from some.

 

Hugs,

Yes totally! I agree on it being easy maintenance!

My own hair has maxed out at 18 inches in the very back.  It has taken 5 years to get that far, and if you really look at my hairline, there is a tad of MPB at the temples, but my stylist knows I am Trans*  (She has an MtF sister) and compensates on the MPB with how we style it.  Which is to say, it really has NO STYLE.  We both agree that my hair is the ONLY STRAIGHT feature of my life.  My current color is a "custom color" that my stylist mixes, and is perfect for me.

I have gallery pictures of some of my wigs and hair pieces that I put there as demonstration for some new members to see for instruction.  I like wigs and some of my hair color choices in the wigs I don't dare wear on a daily basis and if I did it would be hell to get back to my current color which hides my gray very well. .

Vicky love your hair color and length!  Wigs are a lot of fun ~  I had to let them go though in HOT HOT Florida.  B)

Milani -- I will be in Ft, Lauderdale FL the last week in September at the Southern Comfort Conference (a Trans* convention) and as I learned last year, my hair behaves better there than it does at home due to the humidity.  I know full well why wigs are worn with due consideration there, but I will be taking two of my fun ones.

      Also I’m even wondering why I was made like this or at least why so sensitive (just in case you don’t already know I’m Christian) seriously just one bad thing that happens can make me cry

      Hi people I seriously can’t take it anymore things are getting harder there’s school pressure on me and there’s the pressure of trying to not be too sad but it’s getting harder and harder I’ve got no friends (unless you count my mom) I’m trapped because I’m not even free and I think they don’t Truly  love me  and most of the time it feels like I’m fighting a battle against an army alone and I’m losing this is all I can describe how my life currently is but how I feel about it is it’s like torture it’s like I’m in a dark tunnel the exit is a few metres away I can see it I’m trying to get out but something I don’t know what is keeping me in I don’t know if I can even keep trying to continue living but I don’t know if I can kill my self yet but hopefully once I can I have help before I actually can

      Welcome.  I went to a gender therapist and she was there to help my wife as well.  It sounds like you have a wonderful relationship.  Try to take a deep breath and give whatever happens some time for both you and Hannah.  My wife said she could never be a lesbian.  What friends and relations would think was overwhelming.  It has taken time but we are doing better than ever.  Certainly things have changed but love has grown.   Hugs,   Charlize

      Yesterday we sent out a pile of cards to family and friends.  Today i'll head to the PO with packed presents to send out.  This time of year is always busy but with bad weather and the melancholy that can come with holidays it's good to be busy!   Hugs,   Charlize

      Good advice from Jani. Really good on you for being supportive. My spouse is not so supportive of me, but we are still together and I do love her dearly. I can’t see it from your perspective, but I can tell you what I want from my wife, which may be similar to your wife’s, maybe it will help you some.    1) Acceptance that I am not Cis and that I don’t truly know yet what I need to be comfortable within myself.     It sounds like you’re already working on this one.    2) Time. Time for both of us to process our feelings, find an understanding and work through challenges. What today may seem like a deal breaker for either of us, with time and #3 we may find acceptance, understanding and compromise.    As this all happened yesterday for you, this may be really pertinent.    3) Honest and open dialogue. She needs to know how I feel and I know to know how she feels. Without this, we will never be able to discuss the challenges each of us are facing and overcome them.  This also includes sharing what hard lines exist today for us both.    It sounds like you already have this in place, so don’t let it slip.    4) The ability to self express my identity when I need to. I can suppress for awhile, but the longer I do, the more I hurt.  5) Some compromises. Like any other part of a relationship, there needs to be compromises. It can’t be all one sided.  I hope you find some of this helpful. *hugs*

      I am in this mode still too.  Shopping "male" but being female inside is hard for me now.  My wife does help me at times when out shopping.  She finds such great deals for the clothing I truly want.  Which in itself is female training on her part.  LOL We have even bough some of it together.  She gets mad that I am in a smaller size pant/legging then she is.  Though Id trade her for her hips and butt any day! I am not slowing my transition for anyone any longer, I am not speeding down the highway either.  I am letting it happen organically.  ON hold this month still.  My continued coming out will be in January.  Tough ones coming up for me but I have to do it.  I am an impatient girl.   Its always a personal choice to do what and when and how fast when talking about transition.  I respect your feelings on what you are deciding to do.  Good Luck my friend.

      Very good news indeed!  Congrats for getting this far.  Almost there!

      Possibly going out shopping with a colleague and friend from work. It is a yearly tradition where we go out shopping for our wives and family, usually grabbing some dinner too. This is male mode shopping as I am still not out. Not sure I’m going to socially transition anytime soon in an effort to save my marriage.    I look forward to this as he’s a good friend and he works remotely, so we don’t get together often.    Got a chill today, hoping my tea warms me up.    Have a great day everyone. *hugs*

      I think it is wise to plan for a future with and without your marriage.  Planning does not mean doing.  Just making sure you will be taken care of if anything happens. I agree with Jani, try to find a common ground.  Right now it seems impossible.  But given time everybody will absorb what's going on and think about it better once the hurt and pain and shock of it all fades.  As has been said before, we have had a lot of time to process this issue.  The consider things.  Our wives have not and it will take them time too.  I'm not saying she will make a 100% turn around but surely she cares enough about the family to at least talk about it and try to make things better. I find this is happening in my marriage.  Though it is still on a course of the big D like you say, it is more a transformation of itself into something that will keep us together, in part, just not legally married after a certain point.  I too am trying to prepare for a future with out her.   But the stress of it all is fading each day and we seem to be doing good for now.  Day by day is all we can do.

      Dentist and Therapy today. So it's going to be less fun: no drawing but maybe a little guitar playing later. Time to make coffee and get started. Snowy weather predicted for the day too. I am not so warm and fuzzy about driving in that. Cheers and a big hug for all. TA

      At this point in the year, near Christmas, I get bouncy to the extreme - so up and down, one time major depression then a bit later happy again. It started me, just after Christmas last year,  going out for walks several days a week as these seemed to cure my depression and do keep me fitter (and busier as I usually do over ten and occasionally toward twenty miles a week out in the countryside). It was bad at the end of last week but I am Ok at the moment, looking forward to my daily pot of coffee. I think the dreary weather has a lot to do with it.   Enjoy your day everyone!   Tracy
