Henry's Hair Loss Problems...

As most know now poor Henry has been suffering from the dreaded hair loss syndrome...and we have been getting most depressed about it.  He has rather a large bald patch at the back and another on the side of his head.  In the last month we have bought three brand new wigs and they have really not looked right at all...  We have been unable to find a hair colour to 'match' his remaining hair to do a partial re-root, and Henry thinks this sounds far too painful despite Aunty Marti's recommendation to take some aspirin.  So apart from 'putting up with' bald patches and wearing hats, we were almost ready to give up when a friend suggested he try a (whisper) girl's wig that she would send him...and then it could be cut and styled.  I thought it worth a try.  I didn't tell Henry as I didn't want to get his hopes up...but he got to the post before me!


Henry was puzzled to find something addressed to him as he wasn't expecting anything.  He wonders what is inside.


Oh, what is this?


A wig!

He tries it on.


Hmm..what do you think?


A little bit dark but the style is better than the others he has tried.

  2. When you look in the mirror, Henry, what do you think? I think the darker color makes you look wiser! and the style is pretty good!

  4. wow, Henry, I must say that that wig really suits you a lot! You look like "you!" Are you sure you wouldn't rather be a blond? I hear they have a lot more fun than us brunettes. (You'll have to ask your blond sisters and let us know if this is true!)

    1. That was my worry, that I wouldn't look like 'me' anymore. I am not sure blonde would suit me...but I will ask my sisters - I have loads of blonde sisters! Oh and a couple of blonde brothers...but they didn't know what you meant.

  6. Is it possible to dye the wig or is it the kind that will not take dye? The style of this one is good.

  7. Henry -
    The boys think you look sensational. The darker color really compliments your handsome eyes. I always thought it was a shame that Trendon didn't do more really dark brunette or black hair.

  8. I think it only needs very little cutting and styling, it's almost perfect - and in the photos, the colour doesn't look that much darker.

    1. That is true for sure! Mum says the Sailor was blonde when he was little and now it is much darker.
