See a slideshow of my performance hair before, during, and after the big bad chemo year. |
Can you tell which is my "before" hair, which is a wig, and which is my new-grown hair? ;-)
|Fast-forward from the Great Hair Disaster of 2002 to the new hair of 2004!
The good news is my hair grows fast.....and it's growing back curly!
Check it out - a few twists with my fingers when I get out of the shower, and when it dries I've got the Shirley Temple thing going on. ;-)
No styling products - just L'Oreal Liss Extreme shampoo and conditioner!
Well, I've discovered the worst thing you can do with curly hair is try and brush it straight - aaaack!
|August 2005||2005 - A year later, and now it's way past the elbows!|
It still curls, but not as radically as when it was shorter - must be the weight as my hair grows.
Salon-grade L'Oreal is still my best friend. I ran out recently and used supermarket shampoo in a pinch - never again!
I also had to make two changes to protect my growing hair from stress and breakage: no more purse over the shoulder, and no more balancing my sword on my bare head!
August 2006 update
Want to see this hair in motion?
November 2006 update - the same stage 3 months later....
|UPDATE JUNE 2007
The longer it gets, the straighter it gets at the top. At this length I'm finally starting to feel like my old self again - only better!
I keep my hair in a slight U-shape and have it trimmed 2 or 3 times a year. I also treat myself to a deep conditioning every couple of months - I highly recommend it!
August 2007 update - going for a straighter cut
See it spin!
