23. Cancer Beauty Part I – Trying to look normal-ish
Losing your hair is a horrible side effect of chemotherapy. It really didn’t bother me much to lose my head hair, but losing eyebrows is another story. They’re still there, don’t get me wrong, but they’re much thinner than before. So I pencil them in every day so I can look and feel normal. Without them, I feel like I look sick. And I hate that, as you all know!
In the next couple of posts, I’ll be showing you how I keep myself looking somewhat normal looking. I have made a couple of videos on brows and turbans and will be sharing them here. I recorded them last week in Istanbul and have only just edited them. P.s, It’s so weird to edit a video of yourself, the voice!!! Cringe! Anyway, hope it helps people in the same boat. I remember watching a video of Louise Mc Sharrys last year when I was first diagnosed and I thought she was so brave to share. I’m not doing this to feel brave but to normalise hair loss. Women suffer from it in silence all the time so it might be nice to know you’re not alone.
