Shampoo bars and fundraising!

My shampoo bars are cooling/curing now.  I did the hot process method in the crock pot and didn't receive even one chemical burn from the lye.  and here I was so scared.

The soap looks great!  I'm likely going to let it sit for 2-3 days before I give it a try.

After my post the other day I got to thinking about shaving my head again, and decided to do it.  St. Baldrick's gets the fundraising and Locks of Love can sell off my short-ish hair (they require 10 inches for a hairpiece) to help supplement their other funding endeavors.  I get to do two great things, I get to be bald, I get to escape the trap of shampoo/conditioner ... W.I.N!

However, I will update on the success of the shampoo bar before I have no hair!

By the way, if you are interested in contributing to cancer research via a St. Baldrick's event, please click on the link below:

Making Shampoo Bars TOMORROW!

It's my first time, the Virgin Voyage, an adventure ... with LYE!


I'm tired of hives on my scalp.  I'm tired of eyeballing the clippers every few days wishing that female baldness didn't hold such a stigma.  I'm tired of mixing up Baking Soda and Vinegar Rinses.  I'm tired of my hair looking and feeling awful.

There is hope.

I'll keep you posted.
