“No matter how much I set myself up, waking up every morning and pulling my hair up and seeing what falls, it’s heartbreaking for me personally.”
Dowden adds that she has stopped styling her hair and is cutting back on washing it, describing how it doesn’t make her feel.
“So it’s time to find a wig and get used to this and help me feel like me.”
The dancer has always been open on Instagram about both her diagnosis and treatment, and seems to be in good spirits.
“Another step closer! It feels much better today. Last time I was so stressed, nervous, scared and full of emotions, but this time I know what to expect,” she wrote, among other things, before her second round of chemo last week.
