Hina Khan chopped off her hair before chemotherapy

On July 4, Hina decided to let go of her "beautiful hair before it starts falling off" due to chemotherapy. She shared a heartfelt reel of her getting a haircut, revealing her decision to proactively manage the emotional toll of hair loss. Hina, who announced her diagnosis on June 28, wrote: “You can hear my mother's wailing voice in Kashmiri (blessing me) in the background as she prepared herself to witness something she never dared to imagine. Not all of us have the same tools at our disposal to manage heartbreaking emotions.” 

Addressing others going through similar battles, Hina continued: “To all the beautiful people out there, especially women who are fighting the same battle, I know it's hard, I know for most of us, our hair is the crown we never take off. But what if you're facing a battle so tough that you have to lose your hair - your pride, your crown?” 

“And I choose to win. I have decided to give myself every chance possible to win this battle. I choose to let go of my beautiful hair before it starts falling off. I didn't want to endure this mental breakdown for weeks,” she added. Hina also mentioned that she plans to use her own hair to make a wig for this phase of her life.
