My funny hair

A bit flippant here. 

I am so grateful to have hair again but gosh its ridiculous.

It feels on top like shag carpet. So soft. But of course it sticks straight up.

    No chemo curls? It does look very soft. I like the colour

    Not a one @FLClover. Not sure whether yo be pleased or feel jipped!

    Well from what I’ve read they can be a real pain! And they eventually go straight I think. So at least this way you’ll know how to handle it early on, with no surprises down the track 🤔

    My curls didn't start appearing until around that length  & I never got much at all at the front.
    I had a memory cone up on FB recently from the day I  posted about being excited to have woken up with bed hair 😂😀😂

    Right there with you @MicheleR
    I never went back to colouring mine after chemo, either and often say to people that I  got out f growing he colour out the easy way lol

    I think there’s a national breast cancer month or fundraising event in June ? If there is i might as well get a soft pink wash in my unruly curly salt and pepper regrowth .
    im with zoffel - is hair . Is good !

    @noosa_blue150, the buns are on in may. If i could find a spray on job i might try but it might be too close to chemo for me. Bought a pink cap for the mothersday classic i could cover my hair with but covering seems so ungrateful somehow!

    I'm also happy to have some  hair now on my head.  No curls yet.  @micheller chemist warehouse have spray on hair colour that washes out..  I've seen a pale and bright pink one.

    Mine has grown back with gentle chemo curls , thicker, and salt and pepper colour. I actually love it , and I get lots of nice comments too. Totally different to previous, but then ,so am I!
    Hope my curls don’t grow out  :)
