Bald is Beautiful...And It Just Got a Little Hotter...

Thursday, April 23, 2009

Well, as I've said before...everyone told me it would take 14-17 days for my hair to fall out. Today marks Day 17 and this morning, Joe and I shaved my head. Why did I do this, you may ask? Well, when so much hair falls out in the shower that you need to immediately go out and buy drain cleaner just to drain your shower, that's a problem. When brushing through your hair once clogs your brush to the point where it needs to be cleaned, that's also a problem. When your bathroom floor is littered with clumps of hair from drying it...also a problem. So, today's post is simply pictures. For your viewing pleasure...

To the left, this is a picture of me this morning after washing and drying my hair. I have spared you the picture of all the hair that fell out accumulated into a little pile. It's not for the weak stomached individuals, that's for sure. That is NOT what my part normally looks like.

Just below is a picture of Joe getting started on the head shaving process. It was simply time to do it. Enough hair had fallen out this morning and enough appeared to still be falling out that I assumed that by the end of they day, I would have significantly less hair. Additionally, having your own hair everyone is kinda gross and really itchy. It was time to let it go.

Now, a series of pictures of the head shaving process...I fully believe you can follow along from having more hair to having then less hair. Yes, there's a mohawk involved in there somewhere. Then there's a little bit of that rocker business where the whole head is shaved except for really long stringy bangs in the front, then...the complete baldness. Joe shaved his head in solidarity as well (though he does it frequently anyway, it's the thought that counts!). So there it is kids, the baldness is on! Who knew I looked like Sinead O'Connor under all that hair!!!!

Last, but not least, I tried my first wig today, so at the very bottom we have my brown wig, which I wore to work and got several compliments on! I like it!


  1. Megan,
    The wig is awesome, you look great! You guy's totally ROCK. Megan, you have no idea just how much of an inspiration you truly are to others. You've been blessed with that
    within itself. Each day I say a prayer for the both of you. You're doing good girl, keep it up.
    Love you both,

  2. Um...yeah you are hot bald! The wig is super cute as well!
    You seriously look georgous bald!
    Oh and don't forget, if there are little hairs left and they start to get itchy...duct tape is key!
    LOVE YOU!!!
