      I had long hair which started to fall out after my 2nd round of chemo. I woke up one morning and my ponytail was all matted. I woke my boyfriend up and told him it was time to take it all off. My boyfriend shaved my head which made it an intimate experience instead of just going to a salon. I never did wear wigs or head wraps as they were uncomfortable. I just rocked the bald look. It is a personal decision, but I'm sure you will make the right one and it does grow back. God bless.
