Why are you BALD? I am bald because my spirit was calling out for the experience. I felt uncomfortable in my skin wearing hair down past my shoulders.
How has being BALD impacted your life? I've been bald for just over 1 month. I feel more confident and beautiful than ever before. My hair is a great conversation starter. I've been able to put away all of my old hair products and styling tools. Getting ready in the morning is EASY!
I'm still experiencing everything seemingly for the first time!
Walking in the rain.
Driving in a convertible.
Going out in public. (especially nightlife)
Being intimate with my partner.
Shopping for clothes.
All of these things feel SO new and wonderful!
What's the worst thing that has happened or has been said to you as a BALD woman?Nothing yet.
It's worth noting that some men seem to 'size me up' in a way I've never noticed before... where in the past they might have just objectified me as 'pretty'. Now, I think I give them reason to pause.
What words of encouragement would you share with someone going BALD? This will be one of the hardest (at first), most empowering and exhilarating experiences of your life.
If you feel drawn to shave your head, do it! You'll wonder why you hadn't tried it sooner.
