It was absolutely liberating. I am so happy to be free of that weight. I was a tad worried but it was nothing and I think I kind of pull it off.
I did it for 3 reasons, first to honor my dad who passed away. Today was his birthday and we always talked about shaving our heads but never got the chance. The second reason is for a kid with cancer (who needs to feel beautiful) will get my locks and I am proud to help out with. And the third reason is for a little help with college tuition. I thought maybe people who what a courageous act this is might want to invest in helping me become a graphic designer so I can do ever more courageous things.
Honestly the biggest reason I did it is because I want to be free of flyaways if only for a minute. I can’t tell you how many times I slapped myself in the face because I thought a bug was on my face and it really was just a hair.

The reason I am shaving my head in 2018 is to be liberated from flyaways. I am so sick of little hairs in my face. I just want to feel what it is like for a moment to not have these torturous hairs slapping me in the face.
It had always been like this since birth. I think it does not bother most women because they like to fix their hair. But I just don’t have the patience to deal with that. I remember begging my mom for a boys haircut and getting perms all the time to just try and get some relief. One time I was going to shave it at the same time with my dad then get a wig but I did not realize how expensive wigs are. And for the last ten years I did not even think about shaving it because I thought it might look weird. I just don’t care anymore after dealing with what feels like spider webs constantly in your face. I am ready to be liberated.
