Many Blessings for the New Year
Life may not be the party
we hoped for,
but while we are here we might as
Hi. My hair came out on day 19 (AC). I didn't want a buzz cut, so I just waited. A few days prior, my scalp got sore to the touch. A couple days before, my hair felt funny when I washed it...like real coarse or something. On the day it decided to come out, I was home on first day of a weeks vacation, for Thanksgiving. I told everyone at work that when they next saw me, I would be in a wig. Anyway, when I washed my hair, and rinsed it, it was all matted together. I couldn't even separate it with my fingers. I got the comb and tried to pull it through and a clump came out...so I just combed at the roots, until I combed it all out. I tied a scarf on my head and went about my business.
Funny story...I was walking through the house one evening and when I walk down the hall, I have to pass a huge 4'x6' mirror. As I passed the mirror, for one nano second, I forgot I was bald and scared myself to death. I thought a burglar had gotten into the house. Once I realized it was me, I had a good laugh. Take care of you.
Lost hair after chemo #1. I now have about 3/4 inch of hair all over my head. Very dark and starting to look very curly! I hope so. Eight years ago when it grew back, the curl was great. When it got a little longer, I was at SummerWaves and a woman came up and asked me if that was my curl or if it was a perm. I said "It's mine". She went on and on about how beautiful the curl was. (I didn't want to tell her that the perm cost about $10,000.00.) In 8 years the cost of "that perm" has really gone up!!!!!!!!!
Good luck and let us know how the hair grows back!!!
