Maximizing Your Hairstyle
Our Mommy MD Guide’s reply: I’ve learned it’s best to work with your natural hairstyle, rather than against it. You should accept who you are. I have naturally curly hair, and I’ve always had haircuts that allow me to wash it and go. My hair pretty much looks the same all of the time. I never have a bad hair day unless I’ve slept on it for three weeks without a shower.
Since I had a bout with cancer, I’ve stopped dying my hair. I’m fine with the gray. First, I’m not 40 anymore and I don’t want to try to look like someone I’m not. Second, the chemotherapy really damaged my hair, and I don’t want to put any more chemicals on it.
My husband always says, “I love you for who you are.” You don’t need another color hair. I won’t make you a nicer, better, smarter person.”
