I thought you might want to see how much my hair has grown in 7 days.
I can pinch my hair between my fingers and it’s about an 1/8 of a inch now, though it might not look like it from the below photos.
I know some of you were probably slightly horrified when I shaved my head with the dog clippers.
But vanity is not something that I succumb to. I do what I like, wear what I like, and groom my hair how I want simply to suit myself.
I did order a set of clippers for human hair. Most were out of stock, as so many things are due to the increased buying during the pandemic, so I had to pay a bit more. It was $40+.
Here’s what I bought: HATTEKER Pro Hair Clipper Cordless Hair Trimmer
I will have more variety in trimming my hair now. I don’t expect we’ll be going out to get our hair cut any time soon and I like to be prepared.
When I reach up and brush my hand back and forth across my head it feels like I would imagine a porcupine might feel. My hair is thick and bristly to begin with.
And though I know many of you probably thought it unwise to simply shave my head on a whim, I pretty much knew when I started that I wouldn’t regret it.
It’s just hair. Hair grows back.
