My hair is starting to grow again after a distressing period where I
thought I might go bald which would have been so terrible because I
don't know what my head looks like beneath my hair. I wish there was a
way to temporarily remove all my hair so I could study my scalp and
whatever is going on there—an exploratory haircut, if you will—and
when the exploration was over, I would want my hair to magically
reappear. I also wish I could grow and cut my hair at will, like if one
day I felt like long hair it would be great to have long hair and if
the next day I didn't want hair on my neck, I could cut my hair, have
my neck free, and still have the option to regrow my hair again at a
later date. I know you're thinking, "That exists. It is called a wig."
I'm saying, I want this magical hair, without the burden of a wig. The
thing about wigs is that when a man pulls on a wig, it flies right off.
