They say be careful what you wish for. Lesson learned! Just a couple of weeks ago I was wishing my hair would grow in faster. I meant the hair ON MY HEAD, not my chin. I looked in the mirror this morning and thought I saw a bald dude looking back at me. So I figure, one of the perks of having cancer is that I saved hundreds of dollars in hair care over the past 6 months. Technically speaking I have saved myself enough money to buy that new No-No hair removal gadget I saw on the shopping channel. Non-technically speaking, the money is not actually “saved”, but let’s not split hairs, shall we?
Tip: An average North American woman spends about $100 a month on hair care and hair removal (O.K, I made that stat up. It is actually what I spend). Calculate how much you saved due to chemo and treat yourself to something new.
