    'advanced Hair...... Yeah Yeah!!!'

    I know I shouldn't, but I couldnt resist:


    "Bottle-blond legspinner wants his locks back

    Bald patches turn Warne to hair treatment

    Cricinfo staff

    June 13, 2005


    Shane Warne's regrowth has always been a style issue, but his baldness has forced him to join a campaign to get back his receding hairline. Warne, who is a perennial bottle-blond, has completed replacement treatment from Advanced Hair Studio in a bid to return his locks.

    "It's great," Warne, the Hampshire captain, said. "My hair is growing back and my hair loss has stopped." While he hopes the program increases his thatch, the exercise also opens up a valuable box of sledges for England during the Test series starting on July 21.

    Warne told an international video conference from London that he was taking tablets to prevent the hair loss and when asked if they were acceptable under the sport's drug rules he said: "Do I really need to answer that one? Of course I have. I have checked them all out."

    AAP reported that he was also quizzed about ditching his mobile phone, whether he was getting paid more than for his failed quit-smoking campaign with Nicorette, and if having hair was more attractive to women. "You can speculate all you like about that stuff," Warne said. "The most important thing to me is to re-grow my own hair."

    Warne, 35, said being blond was his trademark and he "wanted to feel young again". He also said he would check out Ricky Ponting's pate to see if his was thinning. "I'll have to study him very closely in the change room," he said. "I might have to pull him aside and have a quiet little word."

    Turning on bald patches isn't foreign for cricketers. The offspinner Greg Matthews led a high-profile "yeah, yeah" promotion and Graham Gooch and Martin Crowe have also endorsed the product. Warne had his first Advance Studio session late in the Australian summer and will use laser therapy and a special thickening shampoo to help his recovery.

    No doubt he's going to cop it all series.. not only for the Convict advert, nor the fact that he's done away with his mobile phone and opted to correspond via email but now it's hair transplant surgery! Do I detect a midlife crisis coming on? YEAH YEAH!!
    "You do well to love cricket, because it is more free from anything sordid, anything dishonourable than any game in the world. To play it keenly, generously, self-sacrificingly is a moral lesson in itself, and the classroom is God's air and sunshine. Foster it, my brothers, so that it may attract all who find the time to play it, protect it from anything that will sully it, so that it may grow in favour with all men."

    He's lucky he is getting it for free. It costs something like $4000 to get the whole process done. Then about $1000 a year.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Somebody's called for a quote.

    Gotta say that it'd never struck me that Warney was losing the old Barnet unduly. Brett Lee & Punter losing theirs more noticeably. If Shane was really serious about keeping his crowning glory why doesn't he just ditch the Domestos?!

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    As in not something you'd want associated with that product. There's some particularly choice "dos" in the Aussie squad just now: Dizzy, McGrath, Clarke, Lee, Warne.....
