PonyCap

My PonyCap arrived in the mail yesterday. It’s a baseball cap lined in soft cotton with human hair attached to it. I don’t like wearing wigs much, and though I wear scarves, they give off the look of “chemo girl.” I simply want to be in public without feeling as if I’m wearing a costume and without people looking twice at me. Not that I mind so much, but it’s hard enough with my eyebrows and eyelashes gone. So I’ve been wearing my baseball cap non-stop and I cannot tell you how wonderful it is to feel covered, and blonde to boot. Hey, who knows what color my hair will grow back, and the curl? Will I have my curls? Only time will tell. For now I’ll stick with my PonyCap and ride the wave high because I’m feeling pretty good now working my way home to the only hair I know.
