I’ve mostly stopped wearing my wig. It’s just too hot. I told myself that once I had full coverage, I would ditch the damn thing. It has been nice, but I admit to feeling self-concious about it. I have never had hair this short before. I feel naked without my hair to hide behind.
Surprisingly, I have actually been getting a lot of compliments. Complete strangers approach to tell me my hair looks great. I met a lady this afternoon who told me she loves my hair and that I have a face that can pull off a short cut. I explained to her that it was growing out after chemo, and that I used to have much longer hair. She thinks I should keep it short, and that it is, “Fabulous.” That made me smile.
I was also told today that I look like some porn star, a hot fem lesbian, and a riot grrrl.
It has been an interesting day.
