Shaving Party

A few weeks ago I posted that I was going to have a shaving party when my hair started falling out. It proved to be pretty difficult to get everyone together for a shaving party - especially when I didn't know exactly when I would start shedding. Luckily, my sister in law, Mandy, was able to fly out to see us around the time the doctors said I could expect the transformation to begin.

I was hesitant to shave it if it wasn't going to fall out - so on Wednesday morning when it DID start to fall out, I was actually relieved. That morning, when I ran my hands through my hair I got 4 or 5 strands each time - but by that night, it was around 20-25 each time. So we decided it was time to shave it.

We had so much fun - we laughed A LOT and joked that "THIS" is why you should always have a professional cut your hair. Zac was on hand to capture everything in photographs and add a few creative designs himself.

Here is the video of this step in my journey:

I have always thought you had this amazing natural beauty. Your eyes always seemed to sparkle and you have always had such a pure real smile. Then you go and shave your head and show even more of that beauty. I loved watching that video, I so wish I could have been there. Seriously, you look so good. I have seen women before who purposly shave there heads. I have seen a lot of black women do it, and it just looks really good. You can totally sport this look. Anywho, loved watching it!

I agree with Crystal all the way! You could shave your head without being chemo-inspired. You're beautiful, inside and out.

God bless you.
