Sometimes simplicity means finding simple solutions to
Late last June I shaved my head in sympathy with a family
member undergoing brain surgery. My hair has since been slowly growing back.
Growing back from baldness is challenging, and I have
fussed and fought with numerous hair care solutions since then.
I have decided that instead of fussing with it—instead of
using all of those products on my head daily, wasting an hour of time styling
it just in case someone sees me outside walking the dogs—that I would just
invest in a simple denim cap.
Now instead of worrying about if this hair or that hair
sticks up like Alfalfa I can just go about my day. Eventually it will
grow long enough to lay properly but until then who cares? The time saved, the
worry eliminated—is definitely worth the price of a simple hat.
Here are the pictures of the love shave I promised my Cousin Dani. She had to have her head shaved for an operation to relieve pressure on her brain so I promised to go through baldness with her.
So far I have gotten a combination of shock, support, and
a lot of “are you crazy” comments. Such is life. If this makes my cousin laugh
and lets her know that she is loved, it is worth it. Every bit of it.
Already the hair is starting to grow back, so it itches a
bit. Yesterday I was outside all day and so wore a bandanna to keep from
getting sunburn on my newly-shaved head. I had to take it off for a moment, and
ended up shocking a couple of people LOL!
Gotta love being different!
The first few pictures are after I let my daughter scissor the length of my hair off, and the rest are after it was shaved. I’m posting a before photo as well.
