Why are you BALD? I am bald because I was diagnosed as having alopecia. I was having a hard time accepting the diagnosis, and struggled for a while with wearing wigs, and trying dreads. Actively trying to save something that would not let me save it. I finally made the decision one day after I went to a family event with a wig on to take all the hair left off. I told my brother and we went up to his room with my wig on and I emerged back downstairs with no wig and a shaved head. All of my family members immediately loved it. Some were in shock, but still loved it all the same.
How has being BALD impacted your life? Being bald has impacted me by liberating me to accept the fact that my HAIR does not make me who I am. I love it and I constantly say what took me so long to finally make the move and free myself from society's take on beauty!
Whats the worst thing that has happened or has been said to you as a BALD woman? I have been called a sir, I get stared at all the time. I tend to laugh or shake my head at people because it is not polite to stare, lol. I once had a little girl with her dad ask about my lack of hair, he seemed to be embarrassed for me. I told him it was okay and proceeded to answer his daughter's question.
If you had words to share with someone that was transitioning to being BALD by circumstance or by choice, what would you tell them? I would tell them that hair does not make you the person that you are, and hair surely does not make one beautiful. I would tell them that it would be better to embrace the fact and just do it. Being bald is very sexy and very liberating!
I have convinced someone to do it and she looks even more beautiful after she shed the bondage of hair.
