It’s happened. After greasing up my face last night to help with the erbitux rash, I ran the extra through my hair to do a little hair sculpture! It was the perfect length. I got a real bobo the clown look going. But then noticed that my hands had come away furry. Oh damn. I grabbed a chunk and pulled. Out it came. This morning when I tested it, it gave even less resistance. Oh well. So I took it off. No sense in waiting for it to become a nuisance.. hair on the pillow, etc.
Besides. I really LIKE being bald. I think it feels great. When I’m not on chemo, my hair is so bloody thick that I really don’t have much excuse to take it off.. I mean, if it were thinning, I’d say ‘to hell with it’ and shave it off.. But it’s NOT. At ALL. It’s like a make up brush! So for me, this is really one of the big upsides to getting chemo. I get to be bald for a while. Love it.
