Okay the chemo is on its way up from the pharmacy. This gives me let’s say thirty more minutes of normality before I get sucked into the abyss of nausea and general crappiness. Before I begin I usually try hydrate as much as possible. I use body lotions, hand lotions, foot lotions… enough lotions to keep me going until the cows come home. As this is my first treatment with no hair I want to ensure that my scalp remains smooth and ready for the regrowth of luscious locks. I have been using…. yep you guessed, Coconut Oil, the best thing since sliced bread or so they say. I put a teaspoon in a little container and put it over a bowl of boiling water to melt it. Ensure it’s not too hot- don’t want it scaldy on the baldy! Then I gave it a good rub into the scalp. The scent is so coconuty so just layer it on, lie back and pretend you are on a tropical island smelling a Pina Colada. I bought this great big jar at the Health Store for €16.85 and it will last me ages. No doubt I’ll be blogging a lot about coconut if I am to believe all the things its capable of doing.. All hail the coconut!
