I have been bald for 2 weeks now and I gotta say… it’s pretty awesome. I discovered my head is good and round, major bonus for hairlessness. I haven’t razor shaved it yet, just no guard clippered it so I still have stubble or “little dots” as one of the kids says, and it feels very nice to pet it. The stubble is getting patchy the closer it gets to my neck but it’s hanging in there at the top so I’m not sure what to do. Subtle stubble mohawk? Probably so.
Other things I love about no hair – when I come in to the AC from the ungodly Texas summer I get an instant chill from the sweat on my head.
I get to sleep with a hat on. (not sure why I like this but I really do).
Everybody smiles at me. It starts out as an ohhhh yikes, wait she saw me looking better smile smile but when they see I’m smiling it turns into a oh good, good for her, give ’em hell lady smile. I like that.
It does not faze the kids. They started out with a lot of questions and now occasionally ask to touch it but overall, just an everyday thing. This may go under the what I love about kids post but for now, here it stays.
Putting a hand towel in the tub with me while bathing and just lying it on my head ggggaaaahhhhhhhh. Water in general feels amazing on a bald scull.
I’ve always liked hats.
Mostly I like to know that I can do wherever the @$&! I want. Swim in the gated pool down the street? I’ve got one boob and a bald head… whose gonna stop me? Go in the 10 items or less lane with 11 items…I dare you to say something. Bring up inappropriately personal information with complete strangers… um I think I’ve always done that, but you get the point.
Britney Spe… Ok Natalie Portman
All hot baldies. Being bald does give me a brief urge to buff up… and the urge is gone, I’ll just buy pretty eye shadow instead.
