Long Hair Or Short Hair That Is The Question
As long as I can remember mom always had a curly perm. Than when in the early stages of Alz's. she started refusing to even get it cut. It got very long. When I took over washing it for her I ask her if I could trim it to make it easier to wash . She said yes. Big mistake because she forgot that she told me I could .Now she does not care. And I have been keeping it trimmed for years. But it is time for a trim and the aid washes her hair now. So should I cut it so it will be easy for the aid or let it grow because that is the way mom wanted it in her later years? I will most likely trim it for the aid. But I still fell bad about the first time I did it. Mom kind of acted more lost after I cut her hair the first time. Like I took a memory that she could not get back. My advice for everyone is if your love one will notice a change you want to make don't do it. Wait till they won't notice .
