Video: Week 8/9 Update – Hair, Holidays, New Look, and Love

It wouldn’t be a video update without some sort of madness, now would it? This week 8/9 update – hair, holidays, new look, and love is a combination of madness, discovery, and FUN. You see, there was a boo-boo with last week’s update number 8 (oh how I love that squishy number!)… Need more? Discover 8 fun facts about the number eight… …and so what I thought would be a lovely addition to this week 9 hair update, simply didn’t happen. But as you’ll see below, I made … Read more…

Video: Week 7 Update – Turkey, Hair, and Papi!

Turkey, Hair, and Papi

I am so especially excited about this week 7 update – turkey, hair, and Papi. Probably because it does combine 3 of my favorite things – not necessarily in that order. HA! But yes, this week’s update is all kinds of sweet and a little sappy and…well, it’s actually wicked short, too. YAY. Shall we get right to it? Drum roll, please… Week 7 Update – Turkey, Hair, and Papi! Yah. I know, right?! Okay, a bit of truth. I’m a tad annoyed with myself for hollerin’ the … Read more…

Video: Week 6 Hair UPDate – Blending – 6-2-1.5!

Week 6 Hair Update

Here we are with our week 6 hair update (the real week 6, I said) and we are blending today. YAY! I don’t want to give too much away before you watch the video but it’s a multi-guard experience, people. Whoa. Want more? See the whole series at Hair It Is… I had to. We (me and that mouse in my pocket) were starting to look a bit straggly. Yikes. So yes, Blending. With a #6, a #2, and a #1.5. And it is FABuLOUS. Of course. I … Read more…

She Killed Her Best Friend – He Shouldn’t Have Been Born at All!

She Killed Her Best Friend

How horrible to know in your heart that someone you love should not have been given life. My friend Debbie knows this pain. She actually knows it more than once now. But most recently, in regard to Jethro and his having passed away last week. She killed her best friend and Debbie believes 100% that he, and so many other dogs like him, should never have been born at all. Though it is my tendency to be verbose, I’m saving you all from that with today’s post. There … Read more…

Week 5 “hair” Update – Discussing My Condition

Disussing My Condition

Before we begin discussing my condition, let’s get the BIG BOO-BOO out of the way. Otherwise my Type A, OCD (and let’s be totally honest – anal retentive) side will not let it rest… This is NOT WEEK 6 UPDATE. There. I said it. Whew. You may realize, while watching the video, that I was not on top of my game this week during filming. First and foremost, when I apparently believe we are 6 weeks in on the Shaving My Head Bald updates. Even more ridiculous is … Read more…

Video: Week 4 – Some Shavin’ and Talkin’ Goin’ On!

Week 4 - Shavin and Talkin

Here it is week 4 in this shaving my head bald series and we are doing some shavin’ and talkin’ in this video update. I make no apologies for the length of this week 4 update; it was more than 19 minutes uncut and I managed to slice it nearly in half. Boy HOWDY but I was wordy this past Sunday. Or so it seemed. As I was shavin’ and talkin’, it didn’t seem like it was talking an unnaturally long time but tis what it is. I … Read more…

Video: Dear President Obama – An Open Letter

Please Note: The video below is LONG. I make no apologies, I tend to be wordy and often say what I mean and mean what I say, more than once. This message is meant for President Obama, but is also for all of us. For those of you who don’t wish to sit through the entire “letter”, you may fast forward to 12:35 and most likely feel like you didn’t miss a thing. You’re Welcome! πŸ™‚ Getting to meet the President of the United States of America was … Read more…

Video: Week 3 – No Shave, Just Some Shout Outs!

No Shave Just Some Shout Outs

No Shave Just Some Shout OutsI do sincerely hope there is no disappointment with this week 3 update. I probably should have told you, could have certainly told you – last week – that there would be no shave this week. But even without the shave, I’m giving shout outs and updating you on the growing out progress so far. Well worth the watch, I think. πŸ˜‰ So. No shave, just some shout outs? Yah. Tis okay, though. I don’t want you to get bored with all of this. Either with the shaving nothing off when there is nothing to remove or with me just going on and on about whatever.

To that end, I promise to do my best to keep it interesting each week. If you could let me know if I start to suck in any one area OR if there’s anything you’d like to see or hear, that’d be swell, too. YAY! For now, let’s just see what’s happening in week 3, the update…

Week 3 – No Shave, Just Some Shout Outs!

Well now. That was fun. I am so thrilled by the response so far. And just incredibly blessed by the positivity flowing all around me. Thank you for that. I know I said it in the video but you have to know – it matters greatly to be supported in this way. I could thank you all year and it wouldn’t begin to express how grateful I am. You all ROCK! β™₯

Next week, I reckon there will be a bit more shaving, as my hair seems to be growing quite normally, so keeping it trimmed on the sides and back in essential for the current plan*. I’m still not inclined toward any sort of coloring; at any rate it’s still too short.

That’s about it for this week 3 update. Unless you have any fun and fab ideas for this head of mine; please feel free to share below.

~ Cheers

*current plan: as I’ve said, I have a plan for growing it out but am open to ideas. Hit me up with yours and maybe we’ll switch directions. At this point, anything goes, really. And I would love to hear what you have in mind. YAY! And remember, sharing is caring! β™₯

Video: Week Two – One Guard Update

Week Two One Guard UpdateI’m so very nearly close to caught up that I might not know what to do with myself come the weekend. Shhhsh. Don’t tell the others. They will find more for me to do, I guarantee it… ANYway. Here we are with week two – one guard update and YAY, we are removing some hair on the back and sides. Yes, more than the little nubs from week one – one guard update. And it’s blending quite nicely, if I do say so myself.

And I do.

(Okay, I edited out the incessant going over and over and over the whole thing to make sure everything blended. You’re welcome πŸ˜‰ )

Let’s have a look-see?

Week Two – One Guard Update:

And ooooh, this video is shorter than last week, too. YAY. I’m working on that, along with my editing skills. You all can help me out with that, as well. Tell me what you want to see. More hair stuff, less talking, more talking about hair stuff and more hair stuff, what? Let me know.

I’m getting some excellent feedback already and I’m so thrilled by that. I’m considering doing some Q&A type things along the way. Both for you and me. I do have other things I like to write about besides my hair but since we’re on the subject, there is plenty to talk about and write about.

For instance:

  • What’s the best shampoo/conditioner to use?
  • Best color – at home or in the salon?
  • Heat damaged hair treatments?
  • How often to you cut/color/straighten/perm your hair?
  • Where to find the best hair care products?
  • Shopping for hair care products on a budget?
  • Short hair or long – which do you prefer?
  • How to have salon hair without over paying…

…to name a few.

I have always been fascinated with hair, mine and yours; dipping back into it this way is wicked exciting. And please don’t hesitate to tell me what you’d like to know OR what you already know. I am always up for learning!

Time Spent

So who’s with me? Ready for a little hair school along this transformation; who knows what we’ll all discover while we’re at it. And stay tuned. Week three update is right around the corner, too. I will have that video up by mid-week next, but you should also know that I will be writing about non-hair related topics next week, as well. Boy HOWDY, I’ve got some goodies planned for all of us. YAY!

“See” you soon!

Video: Week One Update – One Guard Trim!

Week One One Guard Trim

Week One One Guard TrimHere we are, finally. Almost caught up. Getting there, anyway. 2 1/2 weeks after the original shave and with this post I’m sharing the week one update – one guard trim. YAY! This video is a tad long as I did a bunch of talking…

Hey. I’ve never said I wasn’t wordy; either by text or video. Tis what it is, I say.

And I do appreciate those who take the time to read and listen. Truly. πŸ™‚

However, I also understand sometimes lengthy is just darn too long. Which is why I did this for ya. I rather like it, too. There will be more of that down the road, I reckon. YAY!

But in THIS video, I catch you up on the week with the growth and then I’m off and shaving. What little there is to take off, that is. I have a plan, I said. Let’s just watch!

Week One Update – One Guard Trim!

Pretty easy, right? It’s funny (strange…). I know that my hair has been falling out for some time but for all my life it has always grown rather quickly. It seems to be doing that now, too. I think the reason it wasn’t getting any longer than it past my shoulders was perhaps, for a variety of reasons; but boy HOWDY. At this length? It’s growing well and good. Or maybe I’m just wishing on it. Either way, I hope you enjoy this week one update of the growing out process after shaving my head bald. One more update (last Sunday’s 2nd week update – coming this Friday) and we should be right on track going forward.

I do so like to be organized. As best as this condition of mine allows me. Yikes. Plus, I have plenty MORE to post about, not JUST about hair and I’m happy to bring that to you, too. Stay tuned and “see” you soon!

~ Cheers
