Late last night Loretta decided that it was time to go sans cheveux*. So, using a shaver for the first time, we buzzed through it. She tried a couple of passes and I finished it off. I hope this is the last big emotional hurdle in this set of chemo. This morning we made it a lot better with my electric shaver. Now she has a relatively smooth scalp.
I’m conflicted because she looks really great without hair and really great with hair. She could easily pull this off as a style choice. I think maybe 1/4″ of hair (when it comes back) would be a really great look. (And cheap to maintain – a real bonus.) I guess it was to be expected – she’s a beautiful person.
Here’s a little video of how it went. It only took a little longer to do than this video takes to watch.
*This is French for “without cheveux” which might be “no rabbit” for all I know. My French is limited to fries and dressing.
