Has anyone heard from Cherry 🍒 since her hair washing problems the other day? Wonder if she's fallen in the Mersey after her wig?
I think they also told me not to use hot heat or products on it, which didn't really apply to me so I forgot it! I have been using a tiny bit of homemade curl cream just after washing to take away a bit of the fluffy edge!
SueW, Shi a get together after all this is finished with sounds like a fab idea. Karana and I have already worked out that we may see each other during rads as I have to travel to Norwich for that as local hospital doesn't do it which will be a pain!
Shi, I agree with you this forum and you ladies have been amazing 🌟🌟🌟don't think I could cope without you all 😊
Dizzie, re: cold cap I was told to be gentle with your hair and wash just for once a week if possible. That was about it! I think that us curlies probably have an easier time with that than others (providing hair is shortish). My new hair care is a once a week wash and I just sticking my fingers in my hair each morning to fluff it up a bit! Although to be honest I didn't do much more than that before cold capping 😱
i lived as a home help in a little village called docking in Norfolk when i was 17 but only stayed about a month as missed home but a beautiful part of the country and have spent happy times in Sheringham, Cromer and Kings Lynn as well as the usual holiday parks etc around Yarmouth
Sharon I am dissappointed lol i was imagining Runner bean on your birth certificate xx hello Sharon x
Dizzie, are you cold capping? They only recommend washing once a week if you are. I'm on day 17 last washed mine Monday, quite a bit came out probably more than a weeks worth but it's still there, mostly!
Ha ha like the scouse accent SueW! I'm 44 and I've lived just outside lowestoft on Norfolk/ Suffolk border for 9 years but originally from Essex 😊
Karana blind date ha ha
imagine my best scouse accent (which would not be good)
'So tell us what's yer name and where yer from'
Ladies you will know when you reach the hair shedding stage, I'm on day 16 and if I grab a bit of hair and gentle pull it fall out...thought at first this was just my long fringe bit but if I grab the short bit at the back it does the same....I get a fit of the giggles when I do this as it shocks anyone that's about!! I think the best thing to do is have it shaved off before I scare too many people!!! Now gonna get in the bath so will update you on any other hair loss after 🦍!!!! Xx
Ps well done Ali on chemo 2 done and dusted . Sending you lots of lovely healing thoughts for a restful time and speedy back to normal feeling 💕xxxx💕
Ps forgot to say well done Ali second one now done and dusted . Hope you’re recovering well & on the mend . Sending you lots of lovely thoughts 💕xxxx💕
Good morning ladies and Best wishes to Cassie and Ruth I.ll be sending you lots of lovely thoughts for your second chemo bast ..... one step closer to the end of journey and then hooray ,,
thanks meesha for sickness pooing (soz) med info but “don periginon “ worked . So pleased 😀 and feel stupid for not asking for it before .
SueW I’m not working either atm done 27 years in social services never had time off before so now “on the sic” and paid for a bit before I decide my next move . Like you I.m too knackered although that may be because of my stupidity with the sickness diarrhoea thing . ...I’m older than most of you & 53 although still a bit of life in the ole girl yet 😂😂😀,,!,
im doing the cold cap thing and also “wigging”. Although the ones I tried on didn’t.t look promisingly before .... a cross between the garden mole and next doors cat ,,, I pointed this out to the shop who told me to spruce it all up with a bit of frebreeze 😀🙈🙈🙈🙈. Anyway , I have plan b a different shop and different wigs . Will have it Friday ,,
Can anyone tell me please if they’ve had any joy with the cold cap and I’ve read somewhere I should I combed conditioner into wet hair before cap went on .... I didn’t do this . Has anyone else heard of this advice. . .
wishing you all a lovely day full of laughter , joy, happiness and Sparkes 💕xxxx💕
Morning ladies! Hope everyone had a good night sleep.
well done Ali on chemo 2 (third of the way there now), hope this round is better for you. Good luck today Cassie and Ruth, we are all thinking of you! 🌈✨🦄🌟🦋🐞
Karana, I am toying with having my wig cut as mine is also a little too bouffanty on top, but worried in case they f@@k it up though and it ends up looking worse than it does now. Cold cap still seems to be doing its work, although lady tuft is starting to shed 😱(sorry if that's tmi).
Chaffinch, good luck today I felt a little apprehensive first going into work (although you seem to be in a much smaller family type environment) it was all fine though. Still getting people commenting on my short hair, saying they didn't recognise me, goodness knows what'll happen if I lose my hair!
Working from home for me today as I have flu jab at 11:10.
Have a good day ladies!
Hi Ali...I have got a hairdresser who is gonna trim it for me hopefully this weekend, it is very similar to my own style already just a bit more bouffanty and that's what I'm struggling with as my hair is/was quite flat!! Not sure if I had gone longer first wld have made a difference??
Morning Sue 🦋
