Hair envy.

Updated: Feb 14

I did a search on Google for cancer survivor and hair envy.




But nothing came up.


How is that possible?


Hair envy for cancer survivors is not a thing?


It is most definitely a thing!


Even now, five years after my cancer treatment ended and I still suffer from hair envy!


It took a lifetime to grow my awesome long wavy hair.


And I loved it.


It really did mean the world to me.


And then cancer came along.


And it was bye bye beautiful hair.


I remember the day I finally accepted the situation and shaved it all off.


I remember it as clear as if it was yesterday.


I held my mother’s hands and I sobbed and sobbed.


I sobbed so much I couldn’t breathe.


For me, losing my hair was harder than the chemotherapy and mastectomy.


At least I was given drugs to deal with those!


Now, when I’m out and about.


And I see a girl with long beautiful curly wavy hair.


Just like mine was.

My heart aches.

I start to pine.


I yearn to have my beautiful hair back.


I yearn to have hair just like hers.


So yes cancer survivor hair envy is most definitely a thing.


Don’t get me wrong.


I am very very grateful that my hair has finally got as long as it is today.


Way back when I finished treatment it felt like my hair would never grow back.


And I am very blessed because it has.


But there’s nothing wrong with a bit of hair envy now and then is there?!
