last year had sooo much hair removed due to brain surgery
regrowing thank god BUT in coarser texture and it’s own direction.
have a BRILLIANT friend and hairdresser Julie, who can HIDE the difference in the two sides…the thin and the thick.
and for a day or two her combover blowdry looks BRILLIANT…until my baby hair parts the back like curtains
so i fancy LOOKING like i have hair.
so hair we go…oops…BAD PUN
hair and chiari surgery MATTER…to a female…
my neurosurgeon DID care- and he did try – on one operation i even sent a NOTE in to the female surgeon taking part …on behalf of my hair during THAT operation :)…they have a sense of humour.and she kept the note!
NO HAIR COMPANIES SEEM TO CONSIDER THE PAIN IT CAN BE AFTER SURGERY!!!
its HELL .
you have pain everywhere!
even NOW i explain to people touching my head the new geographical structure of the skull!
the holes, the funnels, the scars…
but i am SO glad i didn’t cut my hair short before the surgery, as i would be like a troll still!
at least with the long hair i can clip up bad hair days.
it didn’t help that i am one of those people who are entirely CRAP at managing their hair.
i mean CRAP…laugh at it with my sister, and my hairdresser friend.
but i can’t describe the PAIN literally that hair can cause.
but i DID comment that NO hair company made “post surgery” gentle clips, grips, and TRUST me i have tired them all. worn the scarves, …i have TRIED everything…clips, grips, gentle grips, hairbands, banana clip, scrunchies…i had ebay and amazon bought out!
i did rant about the VACUUM of help from hair companies…
and many times i wanted and would have HAPPILY taken tips!
and a year later, i have ranted many times about my locks…lack of…tats…painful…glue…hairballs…
it looks like i have hair.
it DID cost me £130 Babyliss.
BUT i can do it.
OH and incidentally, have NOT had an all over colour done since before surgery.
have had highlight in packs…
am not keen to have it fall out on the pillow.
