Changes in looks…

by Alex - Project Lady

I recently shaved my head, so that is the first change in my looks πŸ™‚

Today I will be working on looks. I will be trying some beauty recipes for me πŸ™‚

Also I am thinking of changing my blog theme to a more aesthetic one.

Tomorrow, after 10 very sick days at home, I will go out for some fresh air. Oh, I need this so much…

I am about to forget how it feels to be outdoors πŸ™‚

My toothinfection is healed so time to visit the dentist for a cure.

My gut is not that bad too, no gas no diarrhea, just normal feeling. I used so many probiotics including Solgar’sΒ Advanced Multi-Billion DophilusΒ and I think they worked well. I also did my daily rub with tea tree oil to prevent candida on my tongue during antibiotics treatment. I ate probiotic yoghurt 5-6 times a day with my super-healthy easyΒ cabbage meal.

So I think I am doing good.

Love,

Alex

    I have a friend who shaves her head from choice. She wears some beautiful head coverings and scarves, some she makes herself. It might be worth looking into for you

        It will, because the last two times you had a “cause” when you did it. This time you’ve been more forced into it 😦
        But the point I was trying to make (badly) is that you can still look beautiful and be proud of how you look, even with no hair ((((hugs))))

        You are right in all you said…
        Love you hugs hugs hugs πŸ™‚

        I will get used to it again. It is not the shaved head it is the self esteem. I will get that back I promise…

        Thank you for being there for me since day 1

        I recently cut my hair, my dreadlocks, off due to hormone fluctuations. 12″ down to 1″ of hair all over. I had breakage and my hairline was receding. There was no choice but to cut it. I tried to salvage it first, but it became clear that all the dreadlocks had to be cut off. Then, I used the electric razor to even it out and make it look like a small afro. I hated it. I have restarted my dreadlocks, but the texture of my hair has changed, so my locks unlock every night. I’m still working on it. I will not give up. C’est la vie.

        πŸ™‚ At least you have the roots they say when something is broken.

        I totally get you. I cannot say at least you have the roots even though I am losing some of them too. It is connected to your identity (Dreadlocks is a strong one) and losing it breaks you too.

        Actually, after 2-3 times of shaving (per month maybe) and if no material used on hair, in 6 months they will get better. But different. More curly, less curly, less blonde, thinner etc. I strongly recommend almond oil daily and less shampoo usage. Then they will become thicker. I can promise you that.
        Hugs πŸ™‚

        Previously, I used Dr. Bronner’s Tea Tree Shampoo and tea tree oil only. I was a lot healthier physically and mentally at the time, exercised and drank tons of water. After my fall, literally and emotionally everything halted. Less water, less exercise, caffeine after a 15 year hiatus, my hair and skin responded in kind. Eczema returned and my hair broke even though I continued the natural hair regiment. I will get some almond oil and try to massage my hair everyday. It can be disheartening. It was 12 years of hair (3 feet) that I cut in the beginning of 2014, then again back to 1″ last month. I am getting used to having nothing on my shoulders again. It’s breezy too without carpet hair πŸ™‚ Amazing how fast it dries when I do wash it. It used to take days to dry. Life is supposed to be like this. Change. adjust. shift a little. breathe. one more step in the right direction. breathe some more. do the happy dance for the one achievement of the day, minute, second… Thank you again and you are strong!

        I’ve just realized that we will be good friends in the future πŸ™‚ Don’t ask, I have the instinct.

        I adore dreadlocks so much. It was with you for 12 years so this is a hard grief process.

        I am sure that you will get that 3 feet back. And I can assure you with almond oil, it will take less than 12 years.

        Tea tree oil is good for coping & preventing candida related dandruff on scalp but I am not sure of its influence on hair growth. I recommend putting tea tree oil daily and not using shampoo for a while . (If you have a shower daily, use shampoo 1-2 times a week only and very little) Tea tree oil is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral, smells nice so in many ways it is better than shampoo.

        Also, never use hot water to your head. First warm then cool water will do.

        Since your hair is short, almond oil after shower will not make it look greasy, but it will look like hair jel. Double gain.

        Washing head with warm water + tea tree oil and applying almond oil daily for 6 months will cure it.
        You can also use almond oil for eyebrows & eyelashes daily for extra long and stronger hair. I recommend using it as a make up remover too.

        Also for the immune system boost, you should eat and sleep very well. You can use my diet it worked real good on me. But mine is somewhat strict about wheat and dairy products and you need vitamin B so I recommend if you do not have gluten related allergies, eat some bread and grains daily.

        Taking vitamin B + keratin supplements are good for the hair and vitamin D boost is good for the immune system.

        I believe, no not believe, I KNOW we will be better each day. Hugs hugs hugsss

    My grief has so many facets that I just handle one day at a time. Loss of many things and people simultaneously plus stress related health issues equaled my tanking self esteem and having to rebuild my stability and support system through a pregnancy since I am officially an old mother. A 26 year old body handles pregnancy differently than a 43 year old body. Writing that out makes me feel like some kind of hag. I’m not really old, I just am chronologically:)

    I’m working on getting an appetite. I am lactose intolerant and have some unique allergies, but have been instructed to eat whether I am hungry or not. I’m working on it. Medications always have a side effect. One of mine is lack of appetite. I’ve been given the ok to go back to yoga, but I am a beginner again without any muscle tone. Must do yoga daily. I have some online classes downloaded, I just have to schedule the time everyday. In between life and anxiety attacks.

    I don’t wear make up, I’m pretty organic, would like to grow my own food again, but have to make a bunch of changes soon, this week, to make it all happen. Things are changing rapidly and I’m slowing down the palpitations. Fewer panic attacks.

    I have the vitamins B and D. I have the yoga classes. I’m getting 7 hours of sleep a night, better than the 4-5 I was getting before. My friend keeps telling me, “baby steps.”

    Next check get Keratin and Almond Oil and more Spring Water. My skin is like a sponge right now. I put oil on and it just soaks in, like I never put anything on. Baby steps.

    Yes, we will be better every day, my friend.

      My diet has no lactose in it. Just add grains to that and there your diet is ready.

      Apetite comes back when you bake some cupcakes cookies to yourself πŸ™‚

      Chocolate helps too…

      You are one of the people who age but cannot (even if you want to) get old. So am I.
      I don’t feel myself as an adult yet! I feel like a child all the time :))))

      You know we come (on earth or on internet :)) for reasons. Having met you is a blessing itself for me. Thank you for being here and being you πŸ™‚

      As you look after yourself, your self-esteem will get higher and higher. Noone’s more important than you. But this does not mean you cannot care for others. I thought that putting myself first would be selfish for the past 35 yrs. I started to change it now. because when you lose your health noone can help you and most would not even care.

      So you should care for you the most. You are the most important person in your life!

      I am here (mostly online) whenever you want to talk. and on twitter @my35project

      Today is a new day so: Get it up girl πŸ™‚

      PS: Babies have small steps but they can run too. No baby stops running when they fall. They just get up and continue running around. That’s what I like about babies. No learned helplessness (yet). They run as they feel like it. So you will run when you feel like it πŸ™‚
