Well I finally did it. I was sick of my hair so I had it all cut off! I did this for a few reasons….. The first is that anaesthetic causes my hair to fall out. It has happened with every surgery I have ever had in my life. With my Weight loss surgery I lost 70% of my hair. And then lets not forget that I had dental surgery right before my gastric bypass, gall bladder surgery and hernia surgery all within 6 months. I was getting bald as bald while I was getting thin. The plastic surgery set it all off again and caused my hair to fall out like crazy. I am okay with it because its just what has had to happen for me to get to where I want to be physically but if I am honest, I had a fairly strange thing about my long hair.
My hair was the one thing about myself that I liked. I really loved my hair. I loved feeling the length of my hair, I felt like I could hide behind it. I looked after it and loved it and spent a lot of years refusing to colour it because I wanted it to be natural. When I had Gastric Bypass I had to get it cut short. My hair started to just snap off and I had bald patches – it was just a mess. Over a period of 17 months since that initial cut, my hair grew A LOT. But it was breaking and thinning and hey, who was I kidding – It needed a cut! So last Friday I decided that it was time and off the hair came. It might go shorter yet. I am trying not to freak out over it being so short, I am not defined by my hair but I do feel a bit naked with hair that is essentially above my ears.
I have been asked if there is some deeper meaning to my hair being cut. Ummmmm nope. There isn’t 🤣🤣 Sometimes there is absolutely nothing philosophical about my choices. The only part of it that was possibly a bit shocking is that I didn’t let anyone know it was happening until a few hours before it happened and I didn’t tell Steve until after it was done 😆😆 Just as well he always LOVED my hair blonde and still does.
