Hey Stephanie! You're lucky! Even my wig has had some bad hair days! lol
But it does save a lot of time getting ready in the morning - no need to wait for my hair to dry after a shower.

My hair is still falling out, and it doesn't bother me at all. What I told my mom was, "I have a wig that looks awesome and never has a bad hair day." Also, I told her that what I'm focusing on now is getting in shape and skinny so in a couple of years I will look hott! lol

I LIKE YOUR ATTITUDE. I HAVE BEEN THINKING THE SAME THING ABOUT TRYING THE STYLES I NEVER HAD THE NERVE TO DO BEFORE. MY MOM ALWAYS CUT MY HAIR SHORT, SHORT SHORT AS A KID. "PIXIE" STYLE SHE USED TO CALL IT. THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN GREAT BUT I WAS ANYTHING BUT A PIXIE. I AM HOPING SPARK WILL HELP ME BE IN SHAPE SO THAT, WHEN THE TIME COMES I WILL FEEL COMFORTABLE SPORTING THE "PIXIE" CUT THIS TIME.

I am about at the same stage in hair regrowth as you. My last chemo treatment was about 2 months ago. I am anxious to stop wearing a wig or hat in public but don't feel it is long enough yet. It is extremely short and very soft and fuzzy. I will say that I am looking forward to trying short hair styles that I never had the guts to try before (I have always kept my hair medium length to long). A lady at work is about a month ahead of me and has just stopped wearing a wig or hat to work. I think it looks cute and edgy!

I lost all my hair to chemo back in 2003; it was one of the hardest things for me at that time, and one of my most painful memories. I've been on chemo again since April and while I haven't lost a lot of hair this time, it thinned enough where I can't do anything with it, so I just keep it short and wear a scarf or a wig. I have those hair dreams too sometimes! I dream I am taking off my wig or scarf and discover that I have hair down to my shoulders.


My name is Shari; I have been a Sparker since July 2006, and living with Stage IV breast cancer since 2007.

Unfortunately, I am only half way though my chemo and I'm not anywhere near where you are with getting my hair back. I can relate - I miss it - not just that I don't have it but the playing with it and having fun with it. It was a part of me.

One thing I can say, all the women in my support group that have finished chemo look great. Once they get their first hair cut and get it evened out, they look very stylish. One younger woman looks like a model to me. I keep praying that I can look half that good when mine finally grows back.

It will grow back, and soon this will all be a memory. Until then, hold your shorn head high. It means you beat it!

One stumble does not a failure make.

Everything in moderation.

It sounds silly but I'm almost in tears from reading your reply. It's refreshing to talk to someone who really completely understands what I'm going through. Thank you. I hope you can understand how much what you said meant to me. Thanks you, again, so much. I am gonna try and get used to it.

I know how much you want your hair back, the weight off, and the port OUT! It was a great relief when I got my port out -- no more painful jostling! Your hair will come, slowly but surely. I found that I actually felt quite chic with the extreme short hair -- think Annie Lennox, and then I saw myself more like Jamie Lee Curtis as it got longer, because mine formerly blondish brown (yes out of a bottle, but what can I say?) came back in GREY! I'm still debating whether or not to color it. Wait til summer -- I'll bet you have a head full of hair!

I have only been off of chemo for two months but I am really going through hair withdrawl. I have some hair growing in but I really miss my hair. I guess I'm feeling like this for a few reasons, one is my life is moving past all of the cancer treatment. Other than my port still being there and having to get it flushed every six weeks or so, my life is moving on but my hair is still gone. My hair was a big thing to me. What's worse is that I have been having hair dreams the past week. In my dreams my hair is grown back and I am doing my hair and getting ready to go somewhere without my hat then I wake up. I know was a small price to pay to keep my life, I understand that but it's just one of those things I seem to be going through right now. I wanted to reach out today about it and see how everyone else copes. What can I do with my extremely short hair until it grows back?
