Hair today...gone tomorrow?????
I haven’t lost my hair…yet. They say it usually happens sometime between day 10 and 14. Day 10 is tomorrow. They say you feel some tingling in your head, or aching like a pony-tail headache, when the hair fall-out first starts. And for some it’s very gradual, others it’s in chunks. Every time I feel any sensation in my head lately I grab a hold of hair to see if it comes out. So far, nothing….which is good…and not good. Because I haven’t had my hair colored since July, and it is long overdue. This two-tone look is not very flattering. But I wasn’t going to spend over a hundred bucks for something that was only going to last a month before it disappeared!
Anyhow, I decided to make a list of all the good things about being bald BEFORE the deed actually happens. Because I think when it does happen, I’ll be too freaked to find anything positive.
1. I get to wear a bunch of cool scarves that my Martha Stewartesque friend Angela made for me.
2. I can literally jump in the shower and be ready in 15 minutes…like my husband does every morning! (He’s not bald…but he doesn’t have all the maintenance like I do).
3. I’ll save money on getting my hair colored and cut…although if you knew how much good wigs cost, you’d know that such money has already been accounted for.
4. Hasn’t every woman ever wondered what she’d look like bald? Now I get that chance.
5. When all is said and done, I’ll actually get to see what my real hair color is when it grows back in (although this might not be a good thing).
6. I won’t have to purchase a Halloween costume! Let’s see, what could I be…that chic from the movie Alien, that monster from The Adamms Family, an Egg...oh wait, I could be Britney Spears!
7. People will be able to tell that I have cancer and might make me some brownies…ala Desperate Housewives style…I could use some of those!
8. I won’t be having any bad hair days!
Okay, that’s all I can think of right now. Any others to smother all the negative ones I’ll be feeling each day?
