I know i've asked about hair before...and this is of course, not the biggest concern ever...but i figure i'd get some insight from people who'd probably know.
now i know that the chemo recommended for colorectal cancers doesn't normally make all your hair fall out. but it can thin the hair out considerably.
now, i was thinking of cutting my hair shorter (right now it's about an inch or two past my shoulders. but i NORMALLY...i.e. PRE-cancer, i often had shorter hair, since my hair is naturally very thin and baby fine, shorter just looked better.
but now that it is also thinned alot from the chemo, i was wondering if cutting it short would make it actually look worse?
as in, would you be able to see more scalp? right now i'm able to just pull my hair loosely back in a clip.
but i wonder.
and also, i've got about two or more inches of dark brown roots, and the rest is old grown out blonde (i went through a phase where i thought i'd try blonde...bad idea).
now, when i was on the chemo (i've been off it for a little over a month) my doc and hairstylist said No to dying it, as the chemicals can interact with chemo chemicals, etc.
but now that i'm off (until after surgery at least) my doctor says I can go ahead and try and get rid of this grown out color.
But does going all dark make any diff. in thinning appearance? like, if you have dark hair, again, can you see more scalp than if you had light hair?
i know it's all vanity questions, but they all say i should go into surgery feeling as good about myself as i can. so for me, that'd mean having a bit of style to my hair once again (as this past 5 months i've pretty much put that on hold)
