Did you know that psoriasis can make your hair fall out? Well it can! After falling out (again) last August, mine has finally started growing back and is maybe four or five inches long. When I stand in the light, I resemble a dandelion gone to seed.
I have a friend who is facing chemo and is rightly disappointed at the thought of losing her hair. I wanted to let her know that she is not alone. When I lost mine, I spent a good bit of time looking at chemo hats, and I found a company that I liked. It’s called Headcovers Unlimited, and it has a lot of options other than traditional chemo scarves.
Of course all their models have a healthy glow to their cheeks and don’t have tired eyes, but it is nice to imagine that I might look this cute in one of their hats. Some of the hats and scarves have hair in the back to protect your neck from the sun. (The hair is attached to the hat in this picture. )
So, if you are dealing with alopecia, you don’t need to send your husband beat up comedians. Instead splurge on some soft hats to make yourself feel better. And chocolate. Lots and lots of chocolate.
Not my image, but I wish it were!
Mommy gets lots of compliments on her pink sunhat
…but she gets even more compliments on me!
Self conscious about the state of your hair? Then consider this dramatic hooded cape/cloak when you go out for the evening.
Made of light-drinking black pinwale corduroy and lined with soft as silk red acetate, this cloak is sure to make a bold statement wherever you go.
Ladies Cloak/Cape is available from my shop at L Bowman Studios.
I’ve had a big bald spot for years and I’m perfectly fine with it. I also know a lot of bald jokes so if you’d like me to entertain you, just let me know. noogies….
Yes! Bring on the Vin Diesel jokes! 😂
I made two capes in my lifetime, yours is way nicer than either of them. My hair is so fine, it might as well be non-existent, but I think if it fell out, I’d be upset. I would, however, like to see some dandelion fluff on your head. 🙂 Also, Toby is much cuter than those hats. 🙂
What became of the capes? Are they being loved by little family members?
Being bald wouldn’t be as bad if my skin didn’t look so horrible. It makes me a lover of Rogaine hats.
The capes are hanging in my closet – they’re full size, made for me. One is some fabric I was given, the other is white crushed velvet lined with white satin
Ooh, they sound beautiful! Now all you need is an excuse to wear them.
If I had your talent I would make myself look better. It would take a lot of work
Oh trust me, I look much better in my drawings than I do in real life. 😆. (That’s sad. I know.)
OH, my! Those pups are just so smart! 😉 😀
Great advice and there are so many stylin’ hats out there! Attitude is so important. And I like your attitude! 🙂 ❤️
I think dandelion fluff is BEAUTIFUL! 🙂
PS…Toby, I can see why you get so many compliments! You have such a cute handsome face! 🙂 ❤️
As long as I have Toby with me, no one sees me. He is the best distraction! 😆
Oh, yes! ❤️
Same with me and Coops! He gets all the attention…and loves it! 🙂
A puppy…the best disguise!
