  1. Hot Shave 12/12
    2966e640 2210 48ff 9359 4348e7dc75e7
    When else will I get to feel what that's like? FYI it feels amazing. I also think this helped with growing it out since it cleaned up those yucky stragglers...
  2. Little Blonde Sprouts 2/13

    Hair does NOT grow back evenly, so if it's dark like mine it really shows... Hence the bleach job which hid my receding hairline and which I could pull off because I also had no eyelashes or eyebrows. Please ask your doctor to make sure this is OK and find an experienced professional!!!! I'm lucky that my mom is a hairdresser and was so gentle with my little sprouts!
  3. More Blonde
    72b6b284 f387 4528 b190 24612b8a39de
    Using generic Minoxidil 2x day plus 2000 Mgs Biotin. fun fact: Minoxidil aka Rogaine works by opening up the hair follicle so it can take in more nutrients and grow faster (hence the biotin which is a key component in building hair!) again, check with your doc!!
  4. Flower crown!

    Hats make you seem like you have something to hide... Crowns make you seem like a mani pixie dream girl. This night I danced my face off and it was awesome... First concert since chemo!
  5. Blonde and growing thicker...
    9a1d55ae 8d5d 4502 aa70 be42d0c79a83
    Eyebrows coming back, getting harder to get blonde... Still love it but know our time is coming to a close...
  6. Blonde pixie in full effect

  7. Starting to get too thick for bleach
    4f32f36c 9d76 4a39 b74c 6c552c536533
    Hence the brassier tone... All good things come to an end
  8. Pixie

  9. Back to brown 5/13

  10. Parttty! 6/13
    35793786 1932 4cf7 a923 eda6dee1a4bb
    Welcome back eyebrows and eyelashes! This is when I got some very high maintenance hair extensions, which got me through the awkward mullet stage of doom...
  11. Weird 90s Mullet 11/13
    5182d5b8 989d 4aeb a7c8 65a189583575
    Extensions come out, use lots of wax and try not to stress too much and let it do its thing. channel Winona whenever possible (who knew I just barely missed the 90s revival, le sigh)
  12. Fake Boblet 03/14
    0673fd17 aa86 45e5 96d3 2b2fa62aaa40
    Achieved by allowing the mullet to grow long, using wax to blend in shorter pieces on top (this is what happens when you grow out a smooth shave!) glad I did it though because got through this awkward phase and it's been smooth sailing ever since
  13. Longer and longer 05/14
    006eb3f7 7847 4d1b aa42 007a3e3e328c
    I stopped letting the bottom grow out for awhile here and finally let my mom cut it. I cried, it was traumatic to see the hair falling onto the floor again but after going over a year without a haircut it was time and of course it looked great. spent a few months trimming just the bottom to let the top hair catch up. hats were my friend.
  14. Longer & Pink because why not?!

  15. First real haircut, bangs and smooth chop 12/14
    3a822307 1759 47c9 98d5 049d044c700f
    Heavily inspired by pulp fiction. regretted the bangs but felt like it really gave the whole thing polish.
  16. mullet reaches below shoulders 05/15
    C7d49afd 68ab 4738 a99c ab63d3d50fdc
    Shorter layers still catching up but wearing hair curly helps to camouflage shorter top part
  17. Updo without a million pins!!! 6/15
    3d4cc12f 2c6b 437a bd71 bf2c5419ca7a
    Total hair growing out milestone
  18. Finally passed the shoulders! Also Ombré
    42d596e5 d448 40bc 81d5 0eea898edd7c
    So noticeable to me (not to anybody else)
  19. Long enough to wear straight! Hair all one length!!

  20. Today 08/15
    11d876ef 650e 4a1b 9c90 270ea74912b1
    Hair grows at about 1/4 cm per month so to get from 2 inches above my shoulder to two inches below took 8 months... fortunately it was the time of the lob so I got to pretend it was on purpose
