  • Aw! I'm so sorry! I am going out on a limb and thinking he may not have meant it in a mean way. It's possible he was letting you know that he would be okay with that option if you wanted to do it. Men can be so insensitive and foot-in-mouth. Have you asked him what exactly he meant by that?

  • yeah, he might've meant that with a wig, you wouldn't have the problem anymore (hair not behaving) know men, they only use one tool at a time, and its never their brain.

  • He's probably frustrated with u feeling bad about ur hair. But u know my hair is thinning and my hair stylists recommended a shampoo. Starts w an N--- I haven't gotten it yet cuz it's pricey but he said it worked on him!

  • I would tell my DH to shut the hell up and probably throw on a hat. I did have to go through chemo treatments and lost my hair so I do have 3 really nice wigs to choose from but my hair has all grown back now but sometimes I wear them for fun. I guess it depends on how much your hair is thinning and you don't have to shave it to wear a wig if you want to go that route.

  • I'm sure he was frustrated for you, but it came out wrong :( Try not to put so much effort in to making your hair perfect for a while.. don't wash it every day, don't use heat or too much product..
