Original blog post from August 8, 2009 "JustDonita". Looking back on these posts and photos remind me how uneducated I was with chemicals and products. I have taken all of those chemicals out of my life and educated myself on the products out there and the reasons not to use those chemicals. I don't have anything on my hair right now, but at some point I will need something and I notice every year products get safer and the consumer has more knowledge. Read the labels, look up ingredients, know what you are putting directly into your body on a regular basis.
I got my hair cut today, in preparation for losing it. I will miss my hair. Before I was noticing boobs, now all I notice is hair. Long hair, short hair, curly hair, purple hair, blonde hair, red hair and the list goes on and on. I thought about it, first I was angry that I was going to lose my hair and then I accepted the fact that I didn't really have a choice. I've always like short hair so I thought I would try out something fun for when my hair starts growing out. I thought I might cry, but I didn't. I didn't feel anything, like nothing. I guess perhaps I'm still in denial, or maybe being ever hopeful that somewhere, somehow, in all of this cancer maze something has been wrong. Like maybe I got the wrong file or maybe they were mixed up. I know that's not going to happen but it sure is fun to fantasize about right now. I like the haircut, it was almost liberating in some weird way.
