And So It Begins....

And so it begins......

I ran my fingers through my hair and had a bit of a surprise!

Now...I knew this was going to happen.. but as Im stuck in 1988 and am all for the 'Big Hair' (and shoulder pads)... this is a bit unsettling. Im the kind of girl that wont leave the house without washing and blow drying my hair.. so this is a big deal.. There was a tear or two. I promised my daughter I wont cut it until it gets too ratty.. but that wont be long as Im shedding badly. So I will have to start wearing my blooming sun hat where ever I go... which Im supposed to anyway as Im a Brit not used to the Californian sun...even after 2 years!!

On the positive side though... having no hair will have advantages. I mean.. pretty soon... I can tell hubby that I wil be ready in 10 minutes...and mean it. And...just think of the money I will save on shampoo, conditioner, mousse, hairspray, hair colour....and razors! Plus I will never have to worry about looking windswept when we go to the beach or on fairground rides. And its a brilliant excuse to wear the drawerful of pretty headscarves Ive had for years....even though my head will look like a potato

One final thing... before my dad had his chemo he had a badly receding hairline and a bald spot. When it grew back he had a full head of hair!. I have decided... when mine grows back...Im going to be a natural more bottle... with a natural wave so it holds it shape. Plus my eyebrows will have a perfect arch to work with.

Thats definitely something to look forward to

  1. Oh Phoebe - you are a sweetheart. I think losing your hair is one of the hardest things to deal with. Praying for you, and also thankful for your attitude.
    PS - My SIL lost her hair with chemo, and it came back thicker and curly!

  2. Keep thinking positive. Your hair will surely come back just like you describe it. ( I do feel for you though. It must be hard to have it falling out in clumps) ((((hugs))))
