I am a female and I have shaved my head 4 or 5 times from mental illness and now I regret it deeply. The first time I shaved it was 2.5 years ago. It was halfway down my back. A coworker (female) stroked my hair and sarcastically coo’ed at me what a sexy body I have and I was triggered and went home and shaved my head. since then, it grew back to my neck and I shaved it again. Then I bought a wig and decided to keep it shaved and just wear my wig so I shaved it back down again a coupe times. The last time I shaved it, was May 1st, when I started tapering from Xanax. I couldn’t shower anymore from insomnia and lack of energy.
Right now, my hair is about 3 to 4 inches long and sticks straight up (it’s thick). I miss my long hair Gawd, I regret ever shaving it in the first place. My hair would be down to my lower back and beautiful if I never shaved it 2.5 years ago.
Oh, lastly, have tons of gray. I’m 52, but I have gray like I am 70. I used to dye my hair dark brown (my natural color before going gray) and it was so pretty. I really F*cked up. It is going to take 3 years for my hair to be past my shoulders again. At least I have my wig.
