Head Wrappings – Tichel of the Day

Why wrap my head? Well, at the moment because the drugs are making my hair break and fall out. And more so since starting, because it makes me feel pretty and there’s something about only your nearest seeing your hair (I never thought I’d feel like that! I’m not religious, so… Weird.)

But anyway, I’m going to record my progress with wrapping – me on good days, or Mr Geek’s creative flair with a scarf on bad ones! Generally, its a joint effort which is nice.

As I’ve evolved my wrapping styles and gathered a worrying amount of scarves, I’ve found more and more that covering my hair provides a reminder of who or what I am trying to project to the world that day. One particular person in a Facebook group refers to us as Queebs – I see what she means. The scarf is a crown and a constant reminder to hold your head high. Patriarchy my bottom.

Family day in Arundel. Wrapping up not just my hair, but against the cold!

Coming home from Ireland. Tired, sad, and contemplating life. This pashmina is so comfy and acted like a hug on my head.

Me & my Geek. Bright clothes to distract from the pain. This week wasn’t going our way, but we keep swimming because he’s my exit buddy 🙂

Same day – having a nap on GypsyTree’s sofa. Spent some quiet time looking out of the window contemplating my inability to cope with all things cold.

3 scarf wrap with a braid. More elaborate than usual, but it was great for feeling like I had actual hair!

My photos for the one scarf challenge. 5 different styles that all use one particular scarf. I chose my purple pashmina because it reminds me of Dairy Milk 😉

Burns Night! It’s all about the velvet and tartan today 😉
Despite an appalling nights sleep, I’m not feeling too bad today (aside from feeling really flipping sick!)

We have Mrs G coming over today, so its a good day for a regal wrap with a difference. Its got a lot more volume than I’ve ever worn before and It feels a bit weird helping with the laundry, overseeing homework and going to hobbycraft in this. Surely I should be eating peeled grapes and baklava from a shiny plate?

Away in Norfolk. Love my green scarf / sarong from Malta. I wondered if the big chunky pattern would be too much, but apparently not!
