I knew once the doctor said the word chemotherapy that I was going to end up bald, but it doesn't really hit you till you see that first clump of hair in your hands.
I was so terrified, a big part of my job is social media & i was worried what losing my hair would mean for that. I was already losing so much to cancer, was it going to take my job too?
I know i'm lucky. I know my hair will grow back, it's already started to (shout-out current mullet phase), but that doesn't make losing it any less heartbreaking.
Knowing hair loss community on the internet and seeing my sisters in this community embrace their hair loss has really inspired me to embrace mine.
so here's some photos of me wig-less for the world. There weren't too many taken when I had no hair at all, so these are the best I could find/feel comfortable sharing.
Natural hair, bald, a wig, topper, extensions, it doesn't matter. If your heart is beautiful, if the way you treat people is beautiful, then you are beautiful.
