I had a total disrespect for it, I treated it with contempt and didn’t care if it all fell out because who cared, i’d just wear a wig on top if it did… *fast forward to a few years ago* I then realized that my hair wasn’t the problem. It was my lack of knowledge of how to properly take care of it. And as you get older the more you realize how hard it is …
