Some people just don't know what to say to a 30 year old mom with breast cancer. However EVERYONE feels the need to tell me about their aunt, mom, cousin, sister, friend, grandma, or friend's aunt's cousin and how their hair grew back curly after losing it from chemo.
Yeah- I GET IT - chemo F*'s up your hair and it's never the same! I GET IT!!!! I had fluffy/wavy hair for my whole life, and until I understood the powers of a straightening iron I suffered through years of awful school and family pictures. So that last thing I want to hear (over and over and over) is how your hair comes back curly after chemo. Not on my watch! I'd rather wear my wig for the rest of my life.
So here's what my hair is looking like these days...it's short and fuzzy- like a "baby chick" (I hear that one a lot too).
