I shaved my head two days ago. Have you ever shaved your head (speaking to women mostly)? Why?


What was your main reason behind shaving your head? Describe your experience. How did friends, family and/or strangers react? Did you let your hair grow back eventually? What lessons, if any, did you learn from the experience?

    Marlene, I can see where maintenance is a great reason for shaving. I've also received the "Are you ok" question since doing it. I can imagine that wigs would be so much fun....so much choices in them.

    Hair has definitely come to be considered a "mane attraction" among women. I shaved my head to raise funds for childhood cancer research, but I did not think I would enjoy the freedom it brings of not having to deal with the upkeep of hair. Thanks.

    I've always had long hair, until about 4 years ago when it started to fall due to illness. I did manage to grow it back until I shaved it recently, but I was never forced to grow my hair. Growing up hair was always a big deal.. having long hair.

    For the longest time I was "chicken" also.....but this Summer I decided to take the bold step, as others call it. I LOVE IT!!!! i, honestly, didn't think I would love it this much, but I do. It is such a freeing experience.

    I've heard the word "brave" a lot also. Last night I was out and about and realized that that I was getting stares. I forgot about my shaved head. Don't think I've ever felt more badass, but you can't be shy with a shaved head. It's all face! lol
