I have received more than a few emails letting me know about these awesome henna crowns for cancer patients! (or really anyone suffering from hair loss…whether it be a permanent or semi-permanent condition) The henna artwork is just beautiful and the women receiving the gorgeous henna crowns seem so content and inspired by the whole process. You can read more about the wonderful experience and see more pictures of the final henna here and here. There is also a video circulating around where you can see the whole process and listen to some of the women talk about their experience which you can see here.
Learning to embrace each stage of cancer survivorship is really key to learning to thrive in your new day-to-day. Things can change so quickly and it is important to realize that each step requires self care and love. These henna crowns seem like a great way to embrace hair loss and to embrace that stage of one’s survivorship. We cannot survive by refusing to accept that which we are going through…we must adapt to our new pace and circumstances.
What do you think? Would you try something like this? Do you have any other tips that you use to embrace your survivorship?
