    My first visit to the hairdresser post chemo, and I went blonde. My hair is coming back in black, many shades of grey and curly, and I didn't feel like me. So instead of trying to regain the "old me" (and we know that cancer forever changes you!), I tried something new. This is the first photo of me without a wig post chemo.

      I think it looks really cute.

      Thank you - it is still somewhat surreal to look at myself in the mirror and not see my self image of long straight dark hair! But I do have hair!

      I have long, dark hair, too, and I can imagine it would feel weird. It really does look cute, though. : )

      Try and relax. Bring things to keep your mind occupied. I would listen to music until i fell asleep. I will be praying for you tomorrow.

      Hope that chemo went ok for you. I found the day or two after chemo to be ok, and then had a "low energy" day. Be good to yourself.

      I will try to answer any questions you have. I am very open and honest and no question is taboo. Try to stay calm on Tuesday I find music helps.

      I cut my hair short on Friday, which was a skosh traumatic - how have you coped with the baldness? Did you get a wig?

      Most of the time I just go bald. If I want to cover I use a scarf. Wigs seem to much trouble for me. I can get a scarf off and on without a mirror in minutes.
