So….I finally did it! We raised the £5,000 so as promised I have shaved my head and donated the useable part of my hair to Wigs for Kids. BTW anyone wanting to know how you can donate hair can see a video by Wigs for Kids here.
The day after I woke up and my brain felt cold. Like I’d eaten too much ice cream
The strangest thing when the hair was all gone was feeling the wind on my scalp, I kept sticking my my head out the window just to keep feeling it, felt so strange but nice at the same time.
Pros and cons
Two minute shower, a two minute shower! Yes I know that’s quite a silly thing to get excited about but considering it normally takes me a good 5 minute to wash (8 if I deep condition it with oil) it’s quite nice to cut so much time out of having a shower.
Cons…oh my gosh it’s cold! Even with the warm weather we’ve been having I woke up the day after with a serious headache, like I had brain freeze. And synthetic wigs? Those things itch like crazy! Now I’m kinda extra happy my hair is going to make a wig because there is nothing comfortable about synthetic wigs when they’re strait against your scalp.
