Hair today....gone tomorrow?

My hair has been playing mind games with me this week. I was holding out some hope at first that it wouldn't desert me... after staying up til nearly 3am Tuesday morning pulling at my hair and establishing that other than in front of the ears, the rest of it was firmly attached. "It's ok! These chunks by my ears can go! You can't even tell. Must have been where the cold cap didn't fit tightly to the head. The fact that the rest of it is ok means the cold cap maybe mostly worked this time!"

Then came the exodus at the top of my head. Another couple of hours spent pulling chunks out. I was going to put a photo of that here, but I have totally chickened out. It makes me too upset. I did however accidentally get my sad face in this one when I was trying to take a photo of the side of my head.

This is how I feel right now:
I tried to convince myself that maybe that would be the end of it, as once again, the rest of my head seemed to be keeping a tight grip on the hair. But all hope is going this evening as the hair by my neck has decided it can't be arsed any more and is just going to fuck off too.
Well, it can fuck off. Fuck it, I can't be bothered with the stress of it any more. So I've taken a night / early hours off pulling my hair out, and instead I've been arsing around with the wig.
My mood has improved although only slightly. I don't mean to sound ungrateful. Because I truly am very grateful to the, I'm guessing 35-40 women who donated their entire heads of hair to create the biggest, thickest mop on the face of the earth. I'm just not used to it.
There's so much of it!  I feel silly. It makes me cringe.
The photo above doesn't do the bouffant justice. Trust me, it's TOO BIG. I can't go out in it!
Having said that, some experimentation tonight has convinced me 100% that headscarves are not my thing. This is the first and last time you'll see me in one:
So for now I am just going to hide in my bed, with my B for Badass Bitch hat on, singing "Unchosen one*" at my hair until I figure out what to do.

  1. I think you look really beautiful in your headscarf photo, even though I know you don't like them. Hope you can get the wig to look just the way you want. Positive vibes!! xxx

  2. Thanks chick but the headscarves really don't suit me😁. Despite my scowl that's it looking at it's absolute best, I couldn't hear to upload the other, worse pictures!! The wig should get fixed up ok though when the time comes xx
