It’s just hair, right?
Except it’s not, and anyone who’s been through cancer or alopecia knows that.
Mine is falling out, rapidly thinning enough that I have to twist the ponytail wrap four or five times instead of three, and that my hands come away covered with hair when I shampoo. I’m not balding, it won’t go all the way away, because I’m not on chemo right now, but it’s undeniably freaking me out because of the association.
And the construction guys are working TODAY on my little therapy pool in my backyard, and I want to have it shorter anyway so I can hop IN at any given moment without worrying about blowdrying it out afterwards.
My hair is slightly longer now than it was in this picture in March (aren’t these BEAUTIFUL flowers? Someone (I assume my friends from Women in Planetary Science?) sent them to me at my planetary science conference in March, with the words “Thank you for all you do — from Planetary Scientists everywhere.) HOW SWEET.).
So, the question of the day is, HOW SHORT SHOULD I GO?
What’s in style for short hair? What would you tell the salon?
Let’s have some fun with this!
