I suggest that you DONT do what I did!!! (Or maybe by the end of this post you will?!!!)
Got out the clippers-handed it to my open mouthed friend of 35 years and said-on you go-off with that mop!!!
We (she!) started off at no.8 then 7 then 6 then stopped there!
It falls out in clumps. I cant raise both my hands above neck level to style it-I can however rub it with the towel and manage with one hand to put some gel in it.
Result? Sinead O'Connor look!
However,this is a bit drastic-I am aware of this. But how can I preach to my kids that whats inside is more important than how you look and then worry re how I look?! I also read of someone whos friend had cancer treatment-so they both had bald heads-thats what I call real friendship.
I appreciate that how one looks is important to self esteem. But when the practicalities of looking the way you are used to becomes impossible then what an opportunity to find a new look! So the fact that I can manage my own hair this way is a boost to self esteem anyway.
Theres no right and wrong answer to your question-but I trust that you will find the perfect solution for you! (your hair and your self esteem!)
Take care, Ellie x
