    I am still, patiently waiting to get my first hair system. It's going to be at least another two months before it is ready for me to go and get the initial attachment and cut in.

    I am very excited, and a bit nervous.

    The idea of how it will feel, emotionally, I guess is a VERY individual thing. For some of you, you are transitioning to a system early on. I would imagine that entails a lot of anxiety about if people will notice, and what they will think. I also believe, that for you folks, the idea of being "discovered" is particularly intense. Then there are folks like myself. Shaved/Bald for years (decades), and decide that they want hair. That's a different road. In my case, I have been quietly telling folks, in my country, people don't react well to things like this. If I just step off the plane with a long, grey mane, I would probably be ridiculed. I am readying myself for some of that, despite the very positive feedback and support from people.

    What I am very interested in knowing, from you wearers (specifically those who are using lace with an all-adhesive bond) is what it feels like, on your head? Do you feel like it's hair? If you tug on it? I have read some discussions about having sex with it, and have been told, hand's off the hair!

    When I had my own, long, hair I would play with it, at times. I know that you need to be careful of the knows. I am going to avoid too much blow-drying, over-brushing, etc.

    I see that a lot of guys are using tons of product to keep every single hair in place, while personally, I prefer a style that, for on a daily basis, I can wash, fluff, finger comb (or put back in a man bun), and go.

    Would love to hear your feedback and insights.

    Yeah, you'll soon be able to give your own perspective! But for me the beauty of these lace systems is that you can honestly forget about them. They don't feel like a hat, they're not hot, they don't trap the sweat; they feel very like having your own hair back. The bases are so fine and airy that they don't really add any sensation to just having hair on your head. I can only really feel mine if I frown, and then I can feel the adhesive. One difference from natural hair is that (at least in my case) the system is only stuck on at the edges, so at the middle of my head it's just sitting there, held in place by the glue at the edges. There is a slight give in the lace mesh, so if I tug on the hair in the middle of my head the pressure is at the perimeters, which is a bit weird.

    I have pretty regular sex, I'm happy to say, and the system doesn't get in the way at all. With a fresh attachment the system is certainly not going to come off. In the early days of course I used to have concerns that dates would spot the system and there would be an embarrassing situation, but after 4 years of wearing during which that has never happened I don't worry about that now. Of course, if you're dating people who don't know, you have to be meticulous about your attachment to avoid wrinkles and other giveaways.

    Thanks, Noah,

    I was worried about having something GLUED to my head.

    The countdown has started, less than two weeks to go.
