Women’s Hair: A Love Story.

Cancer. It’s one of the few words that can stop someone in their tracks, speechless and unsure of how to respond. That one little world holds such impact, hurt, fear, and doubt that the mere mention of the word results in cringes and unsure glances.

Sadly, it’s a word that comes into far too many of our lives, placing its effects on parents, loved ones, and community members.

Things Will Get Better / from TheSirensTale.com

I was first introduced to cancer through my heart and soul, my Nana. She was laid to rest after two years of battling advanced ovarian cancer. A few years later, I said goodbye to a close friend. After transplants, treatments, hospital stays, and endless tears, they were laid to rest at 26 years old after battling lymphoma.

Most recently, my world came to a screeching halt when my best friend received the diagnosis of a rare cancer, POEMS Syndrome. I watched as she struggled to put the pieces together, faced the fears of treatments and transplants, and met each battle with the strongest heart I’ve ever seen.

Throughout all the side effects of cancer treatment, the greatest pain I’ve seen my loved ones face is losing their hair. As their hair fell out or thinned, their sense of identity, confidence, and pride began to waver. Strong, confident women suddenly transformed into women who uncomfortably pulled at their hair wrap, or begrudgingly pulled another baseball cap as low as it would allow.

Until the time actually comes, we never realize how important hair is to our mental well-being. According to the American Academy of Dermatology:

In quality-of-life studies, women experiencing hair loss reported a higher incidence of behavior that interfered with their daily lives, including a significant loss of self-esteem, being introverted, feeling less attractive and tense feelings in public places.
