I have gotten a favorable response. Most people either had no opinion or thought it was cool (at least that is the impression I got). I did have one negative response via email: "You shouldn't have shaved your head. That was dumb! Hair is good on girls."
I honestly don't have a reason apart from I just wanted to. I wish I had a better story or could come up with a good one. Although if I really had to give a solid reason, I would say that I had had a bad week at work and I needed a change.
Were you drunk?
No. I had a beerwith dinner about 4 hours before the shaving. My husband, who held the clippers, was fairly intoxicated. He did encourage me to shave my head but he has no regrets.
Did you go completely bald?
I didn't shave down to nothing, but I did have the 2nd smallest setting on the clippers. It was about 1/8 inch long. Not very long at all.
Do you have cancer or did you do it in solidarity of someone with cancer?
I am very fortunate in that I do not have cancer (that I know of) and I do not know anyone with cancer. So no and no.
How does it feel?
Now it feels pretty normal. At first my head felt super cold. The first time I wore a baseball cap after I had shaved my head, I felt really weird. I felt constant stimulus on my hair. Like someone was cosntantly pulling at my hair. Now I sometimes feel as if I have my hair tied up in a tight ponytail.
Did Brittney Spears inspire you?
No. (And no, it wasn't a cry for help.)
Will you send us a picture?
I don't think I will email nor post any pictures. So if you want to see my shaved head, you need to visit me.
How long is your hair now?
I've been trying to pull out a hair to measure it but I can't. It's probably between 1/4 and 1/2 inch.
