My head scarves


After I shaved my hair due to chemo hair loss

I needed to decide if I wanted to wear a wig or a head scarf

The wigs I tried were unattractive and unnatural

I felt like I was deceiving myself and others

So I settled for head scarves

I had to get used to those too

Headscarves are the tell tail sign of cancer

But they are also a sign you are receiving treatment

I must say that seeing oneself bald in the mirror 

Is pretty shocking to begin with 

I’m more used to it now 

But in the beginning

Each time I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror

I did a double take

A whole lot of hair was missing!

I’ve found a style of head scarf that I like 

And I think I will manage a few more months

With no or little hair on my head
