Day 14 - My Bald Head
When I woke up today my hair was falling out in HUGE clumps. I don't know why, but I thought it would fall out little by little. Um....no. It falls out in handfuls. Here is a picture of a ziploc bag of how much hair just "fell out" during the day today. It is a GALLON size ziploc bag. So, we decided. Today was the day. I didn't want to go through this again tomorrow.
Kevan and I decided to have fun with this. Kevan's dad came over with his clippers and we got to work. I didn't want it to be a sad time. I knew it was going to happen, I accepted it and I prayed for God to give me the strength I needed to get through it. He answered my prayer because we didn't shed a single tear (Kevan or I). We laughed all the way through it.
Here is a before picture. I normally straighten my hair every day....so this is a really BAD picture of me because I had to let it just dry. Also, I didn't put any makeup on. I guess I should've, but I didn't feel like taking the time. Plus, the shower curtain ism't doing much for me.
If I had taken the time to straighten it...there would not have been any hair left. To give you an idea.....here is a picture of my clean brush.
This is a picture of ONE brush through. Just ONE. CRAZY! It is pretty gross!
First thing we did was cut off my ponytails. This is what we ended up with. Short haired Jayde. As you can see...my part is already starting to look bald.
Here is a side view.
Then, he shaved the sides.
Lovely. Can you tell I'm a girl?
David....here is the scar in the back of my head that you gave me from the back of the hammer you threw at me....I mean dropped on me...by accident. I know. I know. You knew it would come up....didn't you? lol!!
Wow...I sure didn't recognize myself in that last picture. As you can see from below....Kevan wasn't that great with making a mohawk. He had to work a little harder. He said it was my fine hair....I don't know.
Side view after we cut off more of the sides.
The mohawk thing just wasn't working for me. My part balded earlier today...so it just didn't look right.
So....what did I learn? I have a REALLY ugly bald head. LOL! Lots of scars, bumps, moles. Eww! Here is a picture of the floor when we were done.
I wonder how many of you scrolled to the bottom first to see the "after" picture. Well, here you go. Here is Jayde will her ugly bald head! LOL!!
I had to change the background and my shirt. I just couldn't reveal the after picture looking all pale. I told Kevan how happy I was that I had straight teeth (I just got my braces off in April) and he said, "Ya, because everyone's going to be looking at your teeth." LOL! Thanks Babe...what exactly are they going to be looking at?
Also, my father-in-law said...."if you take one earring out you'd look just like Mr. Clean." Um....thanks. LOL!
I truly believe God gave me some special grace to get through this. I'm glad it wasn't a sad experience and that Kevan and I were able to have fun with it. I did try on a few of my head coverings and I'm a little disappointed because they don't look that great, but I probably need to work with them a little. I'll definitely have to wear makeup and earrings too. If I don't wear earrings people will think I'm a boy. Anyway....I hope you enjoyed the post and got a few laughs. :o)
