I’m done with hats! Seriously. No more stocking caps. No more ball caps. Raquel can stay in the drawer. I have hair now and I’m happy to flaunt it. Granted, it is too short to need styling, but I do use shampoo and conditioner . . . a drop of each. I tried to borrow my husband’s comb this week because my hair seems to be growing in facing forward. I thought maybe I could comb it down. It was too short for Gene’s comb, but my eyebrow comb worked very well. I’m finding you have to be creative with problem solving.
This week I’m posting a photo from the back as well. This is my most impressive side — my good side if you will. You can see that the hair tonic is working, LOL. I seem to have this swirl pattern going on. I think I will just wait to see what it does rather than trying to tame it.
The eyebrows are working again. They divert water away from my eyes in the shower. It is amazing to realize that eyebrows and eyelashes actually serve a function and aren’t just decorative. I have tried mascara a couple of times, but the lashes are still too short to see a noticeable difference, so mostly I just skip it. And sadly, I’m shaving my legs again. I truly didn’t miss this chore.
You are beautiful!
A funny story about hair regrowth – MANY, MANY years ago I had a condition called alopecia areata (hair loss in a specific spot).
Mine was on the crown of my head. I went to a dermatologist and he gave me 21 cortisone shots within the entire spot. It stayed bare and smooth for quite some time, but then the hair started to come back – pure WHITE!
My daughter-in-law asked me one day if I dyed all of my hair except that one spot! I called it my skunk patch. Of course, I responded “NO”, but also said – “do you have any idea how much someone would PAY to have something like that?”
I never even noticed WHEN it happened, but my hair gradually reverted to its natural color in that area.
Reading your blogs about your hair regrowth brought that back and just thought you might get a charge out of it, Kathy.
Hi Wilda. I, too, had cortizone injections in my scalp when my hair fell out after I was diagnosed hypo-thyroid. Ouch! I remember telling Gene that I would rather miss the hair than get the injections again.
CONGRATS with the new “do”! I would not be surprised if those circles eventually grow out – and you will once again have your own “Style” back.
Lookin’ Good!!! Krystal Gayle here I come!!
You look great! And very fashionable, I might add.
Cool observation about eyelashes and eyebrows functionality. I am enjoying the hair watch!
