I'm definitely a sparkle girl....my life isn't complete without a bit of glitter but as Shi says checkshirt and trainers are fab too....it's just my trainers have glitter on 😂
Love this forum too...it's so helpful being able to chat to people in the same boat!! Xxx
Glad you're loving your wigs Sue, my sister in law is bringing me 2 pink ones today for my fund raising day on Friday, maybe I'll like them better?!
Gotta love marmite, I like a bit of grated cheese on top too but maybe that's coz I just love cheese on everything!! Xx
I'm enjoying a nice cuppa with a fig roll biscuit (have a real thing for these at the minute!) sitting in bed watching GMTV before I get up and tackle some housework.
Hope u get on ok at work 🍒 have you thought about a nice woolly hat or is it still quite mild where you are? And I suppose hat hair isn't a good look for anyone when you take it off, maybe not a great idea!!
Anyone else getting spots? Woke up with 2 on my chin and I never usually suffer!!
Well, as Dizzy rightly said, curly hair can actually hide a multitude of sins. Now that it's dry it actually doesn't look too bad. If you didn't know me you'd probably think I had a normal portion of hair. I can clearly see where I've lopped the matted clumps off but it's fairly well hidden within the waves. Looks like Raquel will have to stay on the shelf for a couple more days.
For any of you lovelies cold capping still with fairly longish hair, you might want to think about another wee trim as my matting was clearly down to the extra length and the loose hairs getting all tangled up with those brave strands still hanging on in there.
Oh Cherry, has it dried off a bit more by now? This whole hair thing is such a dilemma....maybe you shld get your wig home so that you've got a standby! I find mine a little scary, so although I've got it at home it's hiding in the spare room in its box in a bag!!! 😱
Good luck Jencat....hope you managed some sleep 😘 Remember to drink lots of water x
Ive not had a great nites sleep but cld have been the fact hubby was up at 2 to be picked up at 230 only for one of the party (the driver) to over sleep and not get here til 330, somehow they made it to the airport and didn't miss there plane!!
Oh, I think flippancy and humour is the only way to cope with all this. Yes, I think I've still probably got too much of my own hair for the wig to fit well. My office is right by the river too, which is breezy on the best of days - think I'm going to have to superglue my wig down!! X
Yep, I have a wig on standby. Doesn't look too convincing though!! Hopefully it'll look better with a bit chopped off. My own hair still looks pretty full, just not sure what it'll look like by the end of the day though... Ha xx
So I'm sitting here in my soft rollers, having got up at, what for me, is the middle of the night, to wash and then air dry my hair.
Thought I'd post an update given that it was quite an eventful washing!! As I've previously mentioned my new hair washing protocol is tepid water, in a bowl, special Paxman shampoo, Philip Kingsley no scent no colour conditioner and a very gentle detangling brush - all good so far. Experienced a bit of hair loss as to be expected after the follicle-battering second chemo cycle. What I wasn't quite as ready for was the big matted clumps that formed out of nowhere!!! 😱 They were honestly like the consistency of year old dreads (not that I've ever actually had dreadlocks!!) and no amount of oil or conditioner on the planet was going to un-matt those babies!! I just cut them out, gently brushed what's left of my hair - which at the moment still looks quite substantial but when it's dry must surely look like there's huge chunks missing.
Anyway, the question is - do I go into work today with ridiculous lopped off hair?! Not yet sure quite how ridiculous it looks or do I go and retrieve my Raquel Welch from its shelf in the shop in Penny Lane?? Strangely I'm not too traumatised, probably because my au naturel curly hair was looking pretty rank anyway and wig hair will no doubt look a lot better than my candy floss. If I can just get them to chop some of the weight out of it so I don't look like an extra from Dynasty...
Hope everyone's doing well today
