I got my hair cut short on Thursday. I wasn’t going to mention that on Sunshine Factor, but something strange happened since that’s worthy of a “wow”.
History: my hair had been naturally curly since being a teenager. Then, as I got a lot older, it turned into wavy hair. About five years ago, in the year before my cancer, my hair started to curl up again (slightly). My friend and me called myself “Mopsy”, because when I scrunched it – well, you guessed it – it was a cute mess of curls and waves.
Enter chemotherapy. I lost all my hair about four weeks after they said it would fall out. When it grew back, it grew kind of horizontally instead of vertically. It was a cross between curly and wavy – all I know is, it was bushy!
Then, in the last couple of years, my hair went completely straight. I had it professionally curled for my wedding but otherwise, it’s been straight.
This morning: I got out of the shower and it was CURLY – all on its own – or at least, able to be scrunched. So once again I’m wearing “the Mopsy ‘do”. I’m glad it’s behaving like that, because it takes the sting out of having short hair again. 🙂
