Ok ladies. We all know what it is like to lose our hair during chemo and how "nicely" it grows back. We are proud to have a full head of hair, no matter what color it comes in.
Being the nice person that I am, I agreed to let the daughter (known this kid since she was 6) of a friend of mine cut my hair. She is "supposedly" in beautician school. All I can say is....Thank heavens I can use chemo as an excuse for the way my hair looks. She didn't show up at my house until 9 pm. (in case you are asking, yes she was sober and unfortunately so was I) I wasn't aware that she didn't know how to do a razor cut. She wanted to cut it dry rather than wet. But, still being the "nice" person that I am, I kept my mouth shut. I did suggest several times that I would be glad to wet my hair but she said "NO"! hmmmmm
When she finished (after 90 mins) I could tell from the look on my dd's and granddaughter's eyes that things were bad. My middle granddaughter (5 yo and nothing is sacred) looked at me and said, "Nana, you are going to need a hat to hide that haircut"! I took a deep breath, walked into the bathroom and stood there in shock. No where on my head is there any hair that is over a 1/2 inch long...sides, top, bottom. I was trying to keep a positive attitude (we are all good at that) so I took a shower and used 3 different types of gel. Nothing helped. So today, when I would see people looking at my hair, I very calmly said, "doesn't it look great? It is just growing in from chemo". rofl Each of them agreed that it looked great. All I can think is that by Christmas, I will be seeing my regular beautician for a haircut.
Now, if we could just come up w/ an excuse as to why my dd's haircut looks like she is on chemo.
