It's Hair Loss Support At Its Best
So yesterday I got into a heated debate on Facebook with my friend and her friends. She announced that she was going to do Shave For A Cure.
I advised her against it, and told her the stares and general nastiness from people all the time isn't worth it, and suggested she simply donate the money. It just makes me sad to think of a young woman in her 20s with a perfectly healthy head of long hair, looking the thickest and shiniest it will ever look in her life, and shaving it all off to provide some strange voyeuristic reason for her friends to donate to a cause that they could simply donate to regardless.
Yes, as one of her friends argued, it's about showing solidarity with people undergoing chemotherapy. But aren't there less personally damaging ways to do that? Do cancer patients really want healthy people to be bald too? I would imagine that most of them either don't care or are jealous, (like me I guess) that they even have a choice about it.
So her friends basically all thought I was a total killjoy. And I know I sound bitter about this, but I think, having alopecia, I have a reason to be.
What do you think, fellow hair-challenged people?
