Hair-raising effects

Almost half-way through the radiation treatment and the first signs have become visible. None of them are unexpected, and none are any cause for worry. I have some small reddish patches on the left side of my face where the radiation enters to do the treatment, and on the right side of my head just behind my ear there is a growing patch where my hair is starting to fall out. This is also a result of the radiation treatment.

There is nothing to do about this except accept it and try to make it look a bit better, so I have therefore decided to visit my barber again and get a suitable haircut. There are several options available, which include complete shaving of the head just like Yul Brynner, tidying up around the affected area or maybe getting a new Mohican.

Which alternative do you think most suitable? Leave a comment.

Just an ordinary guy trying to live an ordinary life. I do ordinary things like run, cycle and ski. I swim if I have to. I enjoy all sorts of music and like to play some too. I enjoy good food - maybe too much - and a glass or two.

  1. 💇‍♂️✂️👶. Mohican – why not? As long as you can wear your bicycle helmet!
    ”Allt klär en skönhet” (roughly translated: ”Everything dresses a beauty”)! ❤️


  2. My friends here whose hair has fallen out during breast cancer treatment have gone to dying the hair in the manner of imaginary unicorn manes (courtesy of their aspiring hairdresser children) prior to posing for a Mohawk photo, then shaving it off the next day. You look good now, but you will look fabulous regardless of what you do with your hair.

    Bald people are sexy. Just ask your wife.
