This morning, as I was getting ready, I noticed a gray hair sticking straight up out of the middle of my head. Sigh. So I did what would have been unimaginable six months ago: I plucked it. Then I discovered it was not actually a gray hair. It was gray on the top, yes, but on the side closest to my head it was as dark as my hair at 16 (and 35, for the most part). A double-colored hair, and all without dye!
The deal is, when my hair started growing back in after chemo it was lighter, grayer, and softer. Now it's my real hair back. Wavy but not curly, dark, thick, coarse(r). However, I still have that chemo hair on top. If you look closely, it's almost like I have roots. Weird. Chemo does weird things to you.
