Cancer Lesson #51: Wigs are hot, and not always in a good way. (Although I will say my hairpiece with the raspberry-colored streaks was pretty damned fine).
Also, wigs make your scalp itch.
Baseball caps, on the other hand, are way cooler. They may even be “cool.”
I had chemo in the summer when the temperatures were hitting mid to high eighties most days. Frankly, I cared more about being cool than looking “cool.”
Maybe I was delusional, but I kidded myself that my pink ball cap
added a certain femininity to my bald head.

I liked your bright pink wig.
It was actually Darling Daughter’s. She used to lend it to me. 🙂
Just go commando! I used to be worried about making others feel uncomfortable going bald, but why should I feel that way? Maybe it will help them to get over themselves. LOL
I actually went without any head covering often enough that when someone would stare I’d wonder what they were looking at! And you’re right — if anyone was uncomfortable, that was their problem. Still, I have a friend who wore scarves all the time and another who wore her wig religiously. Whatever works, right? 🙂
