Here you can see where my natural hair used to be...the purple shirt...two pony tails....my hair was 17 inches long...I donated 10 inches to locks of love in the form of 2 ponytails. This was my before picture. In the coral sweater...same hair....gelled down to keep the "big" away. The two pics of me in my yellow work vest...today, sythetic hair called brazillian curl by. Glance Braid. I finally found an "add on" that looks and feels like what nature gave me until my own catches back up. I'm a happy camper!
