I am obsessed with losing my hair. The first oncologist I went to told me I WILL lose my hair about 10 days after my first chemo treatment. I have been trying to prepare myself, however this is not an easy task for me.
My hair is longest it has been in years, and I am struggling to imagine what I will look with no hair. I plan to wear hats and scarves, however they are hard to find. Traditional hats from department stores have rough seams and are too big for my head. I ordered a couple of hats from the Just in Time just to try them out. I made a hair appointment for Wednesday morning. I plan on donating my hair to Locks of Love and cutting what is left super short. I think it will be less gross when I lose it, however I am struggling to prepare myself for the initial shock of chopping off my locks. What if I have an ugly shaped head? My hair hasn't been short...like boy short since I was in 7th grade!
Of course I am going to wait until AFTER I see the second oncologist to get my hair cut. Perhaps oncologist number 2 will have a different perspective on the hair loss thing. Either way, cancer still sucks.
