I went to get a haircut today which is usually a depressing experience. I have a wonderful snd supportive women who cuts my hair and she always tries to do the best she can with what little I have. Well, in the process of cutting, a good-sized chunk of hair fell out. I thought my barber was going to faint! She is aware that I have problem hair but this she was just not expecting. Anyway, after her recovery, we had a long and nurturing talk. She was just so sweet. We agreed that the best thing to do was just shave off the rest of the hair, totally. We both got a bit teary in the process. I am now as bald as an egg and as smooth as silk. I feel that I look honest. However, I feel so much better to be off the cycle of hair loss and the tease of regrowth. I'm sure that I will remain bald. It is my hair and my alopecia and others are just going to have to deal with how I look! Now, to go out and buy some sunscreen.
