In the years that I suffered hair-loss, I often tried
to imagine how I would look after shaving my head.
Every few months, I would sketch my head shaved, sometimes
adding a goatee.
always had my reasons
for not shaving my head, but I considered it for
some time. Since my girlfriend really didn't want
me to do it, I waited and spent 5 years suffering
the loss of my hair. I was busy investigating everything
about the causes and the cures for my hair loss.
Eventually, before our marriage, I told my girlfriend
that I must do it (I couldn't stop thinking about
the videographer at my wedding party, aiming his camera's
strong light straight at the place where my scalp
is shining through my hair leftovers). I wanted to
feel carefree at my wedding party.
One weekend she visited to her parents in another
town, knowing I was going to do it.
My friend buzzed me with his machine on #1. Then
I applied some shaving gel to my scalp, and started

only a year later could I manage without it). Two
more glances at the mirror, and I knew it. Something
was missing... yep it was missing. MY HAIR LOSS WAS
The next day, my girlfriend came back.
She cried the first time she saw my new smooth look,
but the next day she admitted that it was a lot better
this way (I know she didn't have a choice).
A few days later, my scalp got the appropriate tan,
so it was and still is even more perfect!
Five years of suffering from hair loss came
to its end in one shiny night!
