Sweetrecovery: #Selmablair Celebrates a healthy batch of new hair


from @selmablair – For those few interested at an in depth look at hair growth ,post chemotherapy for #hsct. I cut my hair short to transition myself and my son for impending baldness. Easy. Baldness came. I didn’t shave head to that end. Of course it fell out. Shiny. Pale dome. Nice enough. It took two months to begin regrowth And it came in fine and pale and very sparse. I shaved it. It looked too sad. For me. I let it grow back. It was patchy in color and I felt like dying it brown. Ridiculous! I really only succeeded in dying my scalp. After a week, I buzzed shorter with clippers and a few weeks later, here we are 🙌. A thinnish, patchy charcoal head. I will see how a pixie grows in. Or I will buzz again. It seems to be too much to have long hair again. So I will leave it short and grey, something I have never before wanted to do. I equated it with giving up. And maybe giving up long, brown hair, complete with time consuming and expensive highlights and lowlights isn’t necessarily a give up. Give in. Embrace. Sure. I’ll try it. Unless…some fancy pants company with a thick checkbook wants to entice me out of dye retirement. Then I will sing about the glories of processed hair! I certainly will. So, until that wished for day, enjoy the head 💋 #buzzed #saltandpepperhair #showingmyroots #thecomeback

Healthy Hair

Reposted from @selmablair – 🌙 Completing the #brianbowensmith trio. I am partial to all he does. And especially ones he takes of this one right here. I look like I have a very glamorous headache. I don’t. I don’t get headaches much. My whole family gets horrendous headaches. I did as a child. Til college. Now I will only get some sinus pain. Trigeminal neuralgia. But that has let up. However, my neck is a constant discomfort. I struggle to keep that furry head on my frame. Tense. Anyhow. That was a bit of a shaggy dog tale. 😴. Portraits are satisfying. @brianbowensmith @kellyrobitaille ⭐️ @karayoshimotobua. #sundaynight. 🌙 – #regrann
