You might think that hair loss after chemo is a terrible disaster. I’m sure there was a time when I did. However, there are so many other more serious problems to cope with when having chemo, baldness can seem a minor issue – even a source of fun and humour. I’m sure it was helpful that I could view it as an opportunity for decoration and dressing up.
A bare scalp is a blank canvas that beckons the artist in us.
I met this beautiful woman in the hospital who was having some fun despite her suffering. She generously let me photograph her painted head. (Thankyou for letting me share it!)

Hats & scarves are a great way to dress up a bald or shedding head.
