Curly and coarse headed people don’t need to explain themselves to no one.
THESE TAGS DOE
I NEED YOUR GUYS’ HELP
So, as you can see in the photo above, I have very long, thick, and, in my friend’s/peers opinions, beautiful hair. However, I want to cut all of it off. Like, a boy cut. Why? I want to give it to a little girl somewhere who has cancer, and would like a wig, so she doesn’t feel self-conscious going to school everyday with little to no hair. My brother struggled with this while he was going through chemotherapy, and it saddened me. He has since passed on, and I want to cut it as a living memory. However, my parents won’t let me, saying it’s “unladylike”. So, here’s where you guys come in. If you guys could Like/Reblog this photo in support of me doing this, I could show it to my parents, and I might just be able to convince them to let me do it. So come on, help a friend out please. Do it for the cause

this is so fucking cute
Unlady like? What the hell, you’re doing something really nice for someone else, and it just might make their day, or even week. Plus short hair still looks really nice even on girls.
Come on, pixie cuts rock socks.
People shouldn’t get upset when someone shaves their head, but equally people shouldn’t praise that person.
Karen’s hair will grow back. It doesn’t have any long term effects what so ever. She doesn’t have to worry about it, she knows her hair will be “socially acceptable” again some day, probably not even that long from now.
There are also people who don’t have that luxury of knowing their hair will grow back. Who shave their heads, wear wigs, hairpieces, scarves. Not because they want to, but because their hair falls out.
And no matter how long you wait, it will never grow back.
I’m fine with that. It’s part of me, and I have accepted that I will never again have a full head of natural hair. I have gone a decade long with my hair getting thinner and my bald spots getting bigger. The reason I started wearing a hairpiece, was because I was getting fed up with people acting like I had cancer. In their minds, that was the only reason why a woman would have bald spots, because she had chemo. And, after they find out that I didn’t have cancer, that it was pure a genetic thing, I got the comment: “Wow, you’re so brave, for walking around like that.”
I don’t want to be seen as sick. I don’t want to be seen as brave. Well, I do want to be seen as brave, but not because I dared not to conform to society’s expectations. If that’s your definition of bravery, I don’t want it.
I’m not saying Karen shouldn’t have shaved her head; like I said, it’s her hair, her decision. I’m saying people shouldn’t make such a big deal over it. You’re not stupid, because you willingly went bald, but you’re not a hero either.
Hair should not be that important.
Hahaha i go through this like 50 times a day oops
Ugh. Girl crush until the end.
