ok, so a bit TMI

Hair loss on the head has been discussed. Today I took a shower and shampooed and conditioned my head. Why, you ask? I'm not sure if I can tell you why but it seemed better than soap. Well afterwards, I was putting a little cocoa butter on the head (it's dry here and my head was flaking!) when I noticed my hands were covered with little pieces of hair. What's left is continuing to come out. Not sure if I have the wherewithal to break out the razor.

How does all this work? Well, as I've been told, it takes a bit over two weeks for the hair cells that have been killed to release the hair. And that began on Monday. Now what's funny is I've been able to keep my side burns while the top of my head continues to shed it's little weight of stubby hair. My eyebrows are fine. My chest hair, what little I have, is all there. But Wednesday, when in Boston, I noticed in the shower that my armpits have started to thin. In addition to that, I'm losing hair down below. I expected to be bald on the head, but elsewhere...? I realize all of this is really a bit TMI but hell, it's my blog - I can say what I want!

I am trying one more time to get a comment thru. Would you like Dad to be bald also? I have so little hair left that it would not be a big difference and Mom says you look good bald.
