Don't know where to put this but I am Going bald again for the 5th year. Trying to decide if I should die my hair a color since for st bald ricks my hair is going bye bye. This is where you shave your head to raise money for cancer. I have lost 2 friends to cancer so I do this. Thinking I want to die my hair a color, so any suggestions? I have been growing it out since December since my hair grows wicked fast. So I should look like a dork when I am getting it shaved. Lol

Must be rough - I have been legitimately going bald since I was 3 but I was screwed by my genes. My dads bald along with both my grandfathers.

Very cool thing you doing but I say stick with what you got as far as color - let the new "owner" decide for themselves.

Thats awsome you are doing this but I'm against dying it also. Some little girl should get to decide what her new hair color will be. A lot of things are being decided for her and done to her. A little thing like choosing her new hair color could mean a lot. I saw a 13 year old little girl get a donated wig and I can tell you it was a huge deal for her to have that hair. I get choked up thinking about her. She lost her battle a few months later. That wig was a little ray of light in a very dark time.

Well I think it's a foundation. I am part of a team for this little girl who was a friends twin sister that died from cancer. Her older sister is shaving and her mom did last year. Definitely tough times for the families there. So I shave my head for them.

I hate to say it but the last 5 years they haven't exactly helped me. More have been against it seems like.

Only could do blue over pink since we had a assembly with boys against girls. I wasn't gonna die my hair pink so I went with blue. 10 hours until its gone!
