My hair started thinning pretty early. I think I was around 20 or so. It was a bummer. All my life I’d had really thick, curly hair, and then suddenly it just started to go away. The day it really hit home was when I was in Disneyland in 2002, and for the first time ever I got a sunburn on my scalp through my hair. My hair no longer provided an adequate barrier from the unforgiving UV radiation the pain sphere showers us with daily. And let me tell ya, a peeling sunburn is 10 times worse when it’s peeling through hair. It’s like demon dandruff, it’s super gross.

Back in the Day Foley and a mutual friend of ours, Scott, were both intently interested in the status of hair restoration surgery. I don’t know why this field was of any interest to them, as they both continue to have full heads of hair, at least Foley does, I haven’t seen Scott in ages so maybe he doesn’t… We’re getting off track here. The reason I bring it up is because we all found it fairly amusing that the top hair loss doctor was named Armani. His services were exceptionally expensive.

My solution was to eventually just shave my head. When my hair loss reached a point where I felt it just looked bad, I bic’d it all off. Thankfully, I don’t have a weird looking head. Or at least this is what I’m told, and I’m trusting enough to believe it. I still miss having hair though. Especially in the winter when it’s cold. Not as much in the summer.
