• 100 Days of Good Karma: Day 90 (Hair: An Update)

    Day 90 of 100 Days of Good Karma.

    It seems ridiculous that I’d need a hair cut while my hair is in the process of falling out, but that’s what I had to do today.

    Because while most of my hair has fallen out, not all of it has.  And this in-between state is less than sexy.

    Mostly what’s left is gray.

    Gray hairs are made of some sturdy stuff.  Like cockroaches left over after a nuclear war, my gray hair seems determined to hold on through chemotherapy.

    Unfortunately there isn’t enough hair left to cover my entire head.  Just enough to make me look patchy.

    Before the haircut.

    See?  Patchy.


    I knew I needed a haircut when a few hairs stood up straight off the top of my head and poked through the top of my scarf.  So I went today and got my hair cleaned up.

    I still don’t much like being bald.

    In fact, I hate it.


    Today’s silver lining:  This haircut wasn’t nearly as traumatic as shaving my head the first time.

    And, bonus silver lining:  I still have my eyebrows!

    What’s your silver lining today?  I love comments!

    Meg, you are beautiful with or without hair! I agree with how terrible gray hair is. Why don’t u get a hair clipper? Have a friend come over and clip it every week. Keep doing the good dance! You are getting there kid, and with CLASS!

      My hairdresser cut it for me. I’ve been going to her for a few years now. When I tried to pay her, she told me to put my checkbook away, that her services were free while I was going through this. She’s a saint and I’ll never let anyone else touch my hair (or my head) ever again.

  4. I think you have the head to wear no hair and get away with it. You are very pretty and hair had nothing to do with those looks.
