Jane: Yeah the hair, this is a wig which I worn out for 10 months and I’m getting tired of it. I do have hair but like I said earlier that I look like creamer or QP doll or something when I take it off. You don’t want to see really. Female: If you want too— Jane: What do you think? It's going to scare people. Female: It's not a QP doll. Jane: Yeah, it's horrible but Female: It's darker than I remember. Jane: Yeah, it has great—we don’t want to talk about that. So I hope we’re about done. Female: Yeah, we were about done. Jane: Okay. You want to see how do you do this? Female: Yeah. Jane: It’s very easy. This is what it takes to the mornings. Is it look okay? Female: Yeah. Jane: Is it left sided. Female: Not a little like—yeah, yeah, let’s do that. Jane: Okay. Female: How often do you get style? Jane: I never have it styled. I just wash it. I washed it with special shampoo, yeah toward in the sink, cold water, two scrubs of the shampoo, let’s soak a little bit, just kind the gently swish it, rinse it, kind of squeeze it dry, shake it and put it back on in it's stand. And I don’t have a fancy stand for the wig. I use a partially full two-liter mountain dew bottle. Don’t know why but anyway that’s what’s there that the wig stay on when it's not on. And I do wear it to work just because—I just like what hair I have is not stylable yet but hopefully within the next month or so, I’ll go have it styled and start going with it. I could, I could have a full block. I just don’t think I want to though.
