I cut my hair last week!
The ends barely touch my shoulders right now, which means I cut off almost 30 cm. In one go! Which means it was pretty scary since I haven’t had short hair since I was a baby.
Most frequently asked question: why?
Because I wanted to donate my hair. Since I know someone who suffered from hair loss and it opened my eyes. Hair is something we all take for granted. “I wouldn’t know what to do if I’d lose my hair”, that is what you were thinking right? Well, you really wouldn’t know what to do.
First of all there is the struggle with confidence. She didn’t feel like going out, she doubted her surroundings. On top of that, there are the practical things, the search for a wig, going to the gym, swimming with friends.
Wigs are expensive, since one is not enough. After a while, you’ll have to get a new one, since it wears out. However, when we are talking about synthetic wigs: expensive isn’t always the best option. Look at different places, for example a cosplay shop. I can see you thinking: really cosplay? Well, I am not talking about those blue and pink wigs of course (but if you want to, go ahead). My sister had shiny black hair and the texture of a black cosplay wig just suited her better.
Wigs with natural hair are really expensive, not everyone can afford that. Thus I find the act of donating your hair extremely romantic. After all, my hair will always grow, some people’s won’t.Of course, a wig won’t take away all the problems, but since she found the perfect wig her self-confidence began to grow again.
