Like many of my ideas, half serious, half crazy. I am thinking about shaving my head again. (Yes, again). For those of you who knew me when I was 19, I had met Naomi TuTu (Desmond Tutu’s daughter) and I thought she looked so beautiful without hair. It inspired me to see what I would look like. I buzzed it all off and surprisingly it was not revolutionary. I still looked exactly the same. The only difference was how society treated me. Many people thought I was sick, perhaps going through a treatment. Others weren’t sure how to deal with me, looking androgynous.
I am thinking about buzzing off my hair again for practical reasons – less to pack. No hair means one less towel, no headbands, less hair product – no conditioner. It seems like upside. The downside is last time I cut all my hair it took a long time to grow back.
Your thoughts? vote, yes, cut the hair? Or no, keep it?
