Here it is the end of summer and I finally have an easy bikini cut! Apparently the hair on my head is not the first to go! I knew that ALL hair was susceptible but thought it would happen all at the same time. But apparently public hair goes first.
I keep swiping at my arms to see if that hair is ready to bail. Its still pretty tight. Chin whiskers are hanging pretty tough. Legs seem a little less prickly and the hair is definitely thinning. Bring on those chemo caps!
Yesterday evening we went out driving and I wasn't wearing a cap. The windows were down and blowing my hair and you could see strands of my hair flying like dog hair. KJ commended that I was shedding. I see the Wig guy tomorrow evening and I suspect I will be balding by the weekend. So I'm clippering it down on Wed. I'm saving tufts of hair to tape to my head. ACS said many women are self conscious wearing caps that there's no tufts of hair hanging in front of the ears.
You can actually BUY tufts to tape in front of your ears. So I decided before the hair abandons ship I will cut my own tufts and put them to work! For more information on hat hair go to
TMI - within 48 hours, it was like I'd had a Brazilian bikini wax. Not even stubble. THIS I could get used to...hairless with no hair removal pain...scratch that. Chemo is painful.
I shaved my legs last week and I still don't have stubble. Now waiting on the head I guess. This is day 17...
