Hair today...

I got my first post-chemo haircut yesterday (as opposed to the No. 1 I gave myself).  I hadn't seen my lovely hairdresser since before this shit began.  I didn't want to tell her what was going on over the phone as she has lost too many close family members over the last couple of years to various cancers.  But she knew as soon as she saw me yesterday that I had had chemo.  There still wasn't enough hair for her to do a lot but now it looks like I've got a short cut rather than being pulled through a hedge backwards.  And she was so nice - even though it took her the better part of an hour, she refused payment.

    How wonderful of her - and how nice for you, having it long enough to have a cut xx  Do we get a pic?

    I do feel better for it - the mullet I was growing could have competed at the SummerNats.

    Sadly, my competitive days are over before they even began.

    @Sister nothing like the first post chemo haircut - it’s nice to have a little normality and pampering return xo

    @Sister that is so lovely by your hairdresser. Amazing how much better you feel when the hair is a bit tidy

    I'm booked in for my first post chemo haircut later this month. Didn't want to cut any but the teenage boy hair do is not working for me. Hate it short but looking forward to having some style.

    I look forward to this day, how long after chemo? I've had my 4th Taxol now i was wondering how long after it starts to grow..?

    Mine started growing after my seventh taxol but it can be either side of that. I am now eleven weeks post chemo and have the look of a ‘boy’ cut.
