I want to shave my head. I have been thinking about it on and off for several years, but never yet in detail. There is no particular reason, and I have worn my hair in a sever bun for the last several months anyway.

Only I don't know what to expect afterward, and it being summer I don't want to sunburn that part of my anatomy.

It could potentially be alarming for any cancer patients or relatives in my acquaintance, but inattentive person that I am, I only know that definitely of one friend of friends.

Хаччу побрить голову. Несколько лет уже об этом думаю, но пока абстрактно. Без почему а просто так. И я не помню, когда последний раз носила волосы распущенными.

Только я не знаю, что будет после, да и летом не хочется сжеть на солнце голову.

Хех. Я на днях тут себя заставила всё-таки сходить в парикмахерскую и состричь полметра волос. На голове теперь лёгкость необыкновенная. И уборку в квартире стало легче делать.

Я тоже уже сто лет не была в парикмахерской, а теперь вот всё колеблюсь - делать - не делать, и жду когда наконец станет совсем тепло, чтобы не простудиться, если всё-таки сделаю))).

А уборку действительно легче делать когда не так жарко голове :)

Having done it twice in my life (most recently in 2008), I suggest if you want to do it, you should! There is nothing like the feeling of getting into a shower and having the water hit your bald scalp!

Personally, I think everyone should do it some time in their lives. Of course, for women, it's a bit different, and I understand that. And also there's the question of what if you don't have a nicely shaped head?

You are right about the sunburn, though. I shaved in February, when the sun wasn't quite so direct, and even then, I felt it a bit. So be careful about that... and please take pics! I want to seeeeeeeeee!

Weeell, if I don't like the shape of my head, I'd have to wear a wig until enough hair grows back to hide it (never though I'd say that, lol).

Did shaving change the way your hair grew back? (I don't know where I got the idea that it might.)

Shaving really didn't have any affect on how my hair grew back. That's something of a myth, so I don't think you should worry about that.

It makes getting ready to go out a whole lot easier! And it saves money on shampoo, conditioner and other hair products!

I suppose, especially if you hair is really as thick and curly as the photos suggest :)

Of course I can slick it back into a little ponytail or bun too, as seen here -



or NOT seen here!

I should shoot some more selfies. Ha.

And of course there will be pictures if I do, I would want to document the experiment :-)

Я в начале марта налысо постригся. Несколько дней потом башку руками трогал - очень необычное ощущение, как будто голова чужая, этакий новый участок тела у себя обнаружил. И сквозняки лысиной сразу чувствуются.

Спасибо, буду иметь сквозняки в виду.

lol I kind of want to too, but my reason is because I have a bad habit of chewing on my hair and well that might cure the habit because nothing else has really worked much.

If I were you, I'd worry that people will think you're lesbian and harass you :/. Russians are very discriminatory in general towards gays.

You have flummoxed me, this is why I took several days to reply, and even now I do not quite know what to say.

It's true that there are some stereotypes of hairstyles and clothing associated with marginalized groups, but I do not think no hair whatsoever is one. A very short haircut maybe.

I will take what you say into account. Still want to do it though.
