Bald anon here. Thanks so much. Your response and the positive feedback attached make me feel much more confident about the inevitable. I think I might just do it now when I need a haircut next. It's so reassuring to see that others have experienced similar things and to be able to talk about an issue like that without being mocked of joked about.
Thanks so much for following up and letting me know you saw the post! I’m glad it helped. :)
If you do decide to shave your head, I hope you’ll take some photos and post them on your blog so we can all tell you how awesome you look! (And if you decide that’s not a look your comfortable with right now, I hope you’ll still decide to post some photos of yourself so we can all tell you how awesome you look.)
One last thing I’ll add. After I started shaving my head, people would ask sometimes why I was doing that when I haven’t completely lost my hair yet. And my usual response was something like, “I’m showing the hair who’s boss. It can’t quit on me if get rid of it first!”
