Congratulations to Charlotta Gilmer for being chosen Baldie of the Month of March. Even though Charlotta went Bald out of frustration, she realized it was a true display of her confidence. Read more below.
March 1 2015 I went bald...... by choice! It wasn't something I had to think about or even wonder what people would think. I cut my hair out of frustration. I was tired of coming up with hair styles. I posted a picture to IG and FB with no thought or care to what anyone had to say. But hey that is just who I am!😗 I woke up this morning nothing was unusual for me. I took my boyfriend his lunch he left at home around 8:30am. I went to the mall to see my friend Ro. I talked to her for a bit and that's when my life changed! A woman walked by and said to me "baby you are gorgeous let me see you spin" and without a thought I was spinning saying "Yaaaasss honey so are you!" This woman said this to me every time she saw me in the next hour and half which was about 5-7 times. People for some reason smiled at me, several talked to me, asked how I was doing, told me to have a great day, told me I was beautiful, and winked at me. I started to feel bad because I thought maybe people were thinking I was sick. This continued all day. I let it and spoke when I was spoken too, smiled when people smiled at me. Until I headed in the grocery store and this lady coming out looks at me quickly takes off her hat and says " SISTA!!!!!!" she opens her arms greets me with a huge smile showing me her bald head. We briefly exchanged stories on why we went bald by choice. That's when it hit me! Going bald wasn't just me being tired of my hair. It was a true display of my confidence. Some people have no choice and I did it with having several choices. At this point I am thinking I want to stay bald even on my wedding day! I have never felt this good about myself. It was a new a high and of 30 yrs I've been on earth today was a day I didn't have to worry about my hair and I FREAKING LOVED IT!
