I'm biting the bullet and doing the world's greatest shave!!

hey everyone,

after alot of 'ummming and arghing' I'm biting the bullet and taking part in the Leukaemia Foundation World's Greatest Shave this year.

Take a look at my Profile Page by clicking this link: http://my.imisfriendraising.com.au/p...aspx?SID=64624

If you'd like to support me (which would be greatly appreciated), you can make a secure online donation using your credit card.

- Every hour of every day, at least one person in Australia is diagnosed with leukaemia, lymphoma or myeloma.
- Every two hours, someone loses their life to blood cancer.
Please help me raise as much as I can for the Leukaemia Foundation. Their vital work provides patients with practical support during their long and tough treatment, as well as funding important research.


Thanks for your support!

Wow, you're incredibly brave, I could never do it. Well done you!
I'll sponsor you, though I'm afraid it won't be much - still on the ole frugal challenge, more's the pity. Hope you reach your target.

thanks starmie, if it's going to stretch your budget don't stress about it, but even a few dollars will still make a difference in the long run (after all every dollar counts!).

I'm excited yet nervous, I've been contemplating for ages whether to do it. It's something I've ALWAYS wanted to do though, so I'm doing it!

I'll be sure to post some pics once I've shaved. *nervous laugh*

Oh wow, that solves the issue of searching for a curly hair friendly hairdresser!

Good luck with reaching your target!
Wow, major props to you! I'd never be brave enough to shave my head.
I would donate if I actually had a credit card. They're remarkably hard to come by...when you're 16.
Anyway, good luck!

Your hair will grow back you know and then you'll be needing your stash!

Have you done it yet? The date on the link said 12-14 March.

haha I know it'll grow back starmie, I wasn't planning on giving it all away.. just thought people might like to try some??

yes yes I've done it, I have to upload my after photo.
I'm loving my hair atm though,it's all fluffy and soft and it takes literally a few seconds to dry! it's a whole new experience.

Oh, you're so brave, I really couldn't do it, my hair would just be so hideous growing back in. And that's quite apart from the fact I've got a bumpy head and psoriasis! Not good. Looking forward to the pic.

It looks cute! How are you coping with it being so different?

Thanks starmie!
I'm ok.. I forget every now and then as it feels as though I'm wearing it in a bun, weird huh?
I'm enjoying playing with accessories, big earrings, headbands ( It's actually surprising the ones that usually fell off when I had all my hair stay on now!) and lots of hats and homemade beanies!
The compliments are flowing in, it's insane! who knew! I still get a few unsure looks though...like yesterday in petra the two girls at the counter didn't know what to say, I had to laugh!

I think the fact that everyone is being so supportive makes it so much easier.
My scalp is sore/ playing up atm due to stress (which is a usual occurrence), but at least I can really get at it at this length.My love of head massages has doubled!!

I think also the fact that it doesn't matter how hard I try it'll still look the same stops me from fussing.

I think it's already grown, in just over a week!

in generally I'm traveling fine (enough rambling for now.)

I dont know if I'm too late but I would advise you not to shave your hair off. Its a great cause but my grandmother tells a story about how she had curls as a child and she got scarlet feaver and for some reason they thought it would be necessary to shave her hair off. When it grewback it was straight.
This might be a one off thing beasue I have never herd of it happening anywhere else but I thought you might want to know.

Good luck if you do decide to shave your head! I hope you raise lots of money =]
haha too late, only time will tell.

Whoa congrats curlywurlygurly, good on you for doing that!
I'm in NZ and not 18 yet so don't have a CC so can't donate, but would have if i did.

Oh and an off topic question - I see you live in Aus, where did you get your KCCC and KCKT products from?
Great to hear that you're enjoying having it short. Did you get much of a response from the General Discussions section?
