For a good portion of my life my hair spent it’s time pulled back into a ponytail. Every now-and-then I’d get a great cute shortish cut. Eventually due to lack of caring it would grow long enough to be pulled back into an up-do.
As a young girl the color was blond. By middle school the color had darkened slightly, which could have been the oil caused by puberty. In high school and early college years I fell victim to the home hair coloring products. Upon college graduation my hair was universally a nice fine straight light brown. It stayed that way until mid-way through my first line of cancer treatment.
Cisplatin robbed me of my hair, among other things. Whole brain radiation caused all sorts of havoc on/in my head. From this point on what grows out of my scalp is a crapshoot. Fine to course; white to dark brown; straight to curls – you name it, I’ve likely had it with the exception of long hair.
It’s about time that I get my hair cut again. The poof has gotten pooffier. I’m considering to let it grow out a little. What will it look like? Will it be easier to cover the thinning patches if it grows longer? Will I ever sport the pulled back pony again?
I feel like a walking, talking, mostly hair growing science experiment.
