Re: Hair Loss - going to salon tomorrow!
I have very thick hair, and when I went for my RAI, and had my hair done, I was sooo embarrassed of my baldspots. I warned the guy who does my hair, and he told me that he has a lot of customers much much worse.
He not only worked with chemo. patients, but there are a lot of women with very very little hair, they hide it pretty well (and he helps them!) and he said compared to them---I had tons of hair.
I made sure not to switch hair pp. until my bald spots grew in quite well (even though they are just now getting to the length of the rest of my hair over 2 years).....there are many many women out there with hair issues---I know a young girl in my neighborhood with such little hair, she's taken to wearing a natural wig (and it looks great!).
You may find that keeping it shorter actually makes it look much fuller....Keep your sense of humor, I think that helps, and nobody will see it as bad as you do! Good luck....
