I may try adding an extra day here and there. I figure if a stronger helmet can be used, it may be ok to use the weaker one more frequently?
Although my hair has a LITTLE more on top since using it, I am very self conscious of how thin it is. I do have a couple of top pieces that I wear when I go out, unless I have a baseball cap on!
Lisey, - Thank you for sharing your routine! I will look into the curly products! I always had curly hair, and used to have it straightened. Since chemo, it is straight on top and still curly on sides and back.
Faith, - I dont know if it would match your hair, but I like Raquel Welch toppers, - I have Sonata and Lyric and both are good! I ordered them online from wigs.com (https://www.wigs.com/products/sonata-top-piece-raq...) They are having a 30% off sale for a couple more days if you are interested!
