Before/ After

This first photo was taken on Sunday - Oct 5th. It is about 5 months since Chemo now.
I decided last week that I wanted to get a hair cut- I know weird right? Well when my hair first came in - it was very light - white/clear - who knows?.. Anyway plus my hair has been growing for 5 months. So I figured that the split ends needed to be cut off anyway. I really did not want to lose any of the length of my hair - but you do what you gotta do.
 So yesterday was the haircut day! And here is the new do:

When I went to blow dry and curl my hair this morning- I was very surprised at what a big difference 1/8-1/4 of an inch can make. That little amount of hair more had my hair laying down a little smoother and helped get a better curl in my hair. But I am going to look at the positive side- I have hair. I have enough hair I can style it. And I am thankful for that!
I really think getting the ends of my hair trimmed off made big difference I the color of my hair - or at least what color it looks like. Before it looked a bit lighter because of those light ends, now it looks darker. And hopefully healthier as well.
It will be quite some time before I get another hair cut. But that is alright. Helps save me money.


  1. You look great! We have a trip to Disney World later this year and I've been growing out my hair (now past my waist). My plan is to donate my hair to locks of love while visiting the States.
    Hugs to you!

  2. I think it looks darker with the hair cut as well--and more stylish too! :) And I love your looking at the positive side--about saving money if you won't need a haircut for a long time still. Looking at the positive side is something we all need to do more of! We are truly all so very blessed!

  3. Hi Lisa! I really think your hair looks darker now. It looks cute! I like the bangs. I wonder if there were days that you wondered if your hair would come back, much less get it cut. To me, this would be a major milestone. Congrats!!

    It's nice to see a new photo of you too. I hope you are feeling stronger every day. Know you are in my prayers as always,

  4. You are right-it looks darker and super healthy. :). You look beautiful and I'm so happy for you that you can run your fingers through hair again. :)

  5. Oh, it looks awesome! Woo hoo for a hair cut!
