Yeah, yeah, I could go bald again, but here’s my problem. I’m a fair weather friend. Meaning that I REALLY don’t like the cold. Call me wimpy~ that’s fair. The thought of being bald during the winter was something I knew I would hate, so there was some dread there. My husband, while totally supportive and still thought I was sexy, mildly complained about the prickly-ness of the stubble. And lastly, I was going on a 3-week trip and did not want to deal with shaving and being ‘looked at.
Facing all those factors, I stopped shaving a week before my trip. In Greece and Italy, I wore this bandana, A LOT.
What has been the hardest is that while bald is not my favorite look on me, I preferred it to this super short hair.
After a while, I couldn’t stand seeing all the gray hairs, so I colored it chocolate cherry.
Better, but there is something weird about this hair growing in. I notice that it has an incredibly strong growth pattern. So, you really just have to ‘go with it’. As it is growing in, I feel like I am wearing a ‘Hair Hat’. A pouf-y hair hat. An ugly, pouf-y hair hat. I look like Sharon Osborne. Sigh.
Will I go bald again? Yes. When? I don’t know. The growing back phase really sucks. So, it will be while before I post again, but I just wanted to say, thank you to all you supportive ladies out there.
Posting my thoughts, feelings and pictures here helped me to feel not alone, and not freakish, like I must be going through mid-life or something. Posting here has helped me to feel part of a sisterhood of...
brave bald women.
That is what I miss most about being bald.
