Was catching up with an old friend recently, it had been a few years since I’d seen him. He’s been slowly losing his hair since his mid-20s, whereas mine is simply going grey — genetics can be a cruel thing. When we met up, something looked different, but I couldn’t quite put my finger on it. A beer or two later, he asked “so, what do you think?” and pointed to the top of his head.
He told me about his wig, very realistic, real hair in fact, rigorously and regularly maintained to look real. Which it did. Good for him, I reckon, it’s like anything, if you think you’ll look and feel better, go for it, if it doesn’t involve surgery. That’s where I personally draw the line.
I couldn’t believe how real it looked. “It’s real hair” he told me, “real hair from some guy in India.”
“I don’t believe it!” I replied. “You’ve out-sourced your hair to India!”
