My last real hair growth and nail update was at the end of November. I really did mean to document my hair growth a bit more often than this. I think I dont because I dont see much of a difference week to week. But every time I see people who I havent seen in 2-4 weeks they certainly do see a difference. Which Im glad for the encouragement of them seeing my hair “so long” because most days I dont see that. Photo Jan 29, 3 37 17 PM
So I dont normally wear my hair like this, but it shows how big/long it is just towel dried (my blow dryer still is packed away, I dont see a big need to pull it out yet).
Jan 29th (6.5 months post chemo) compared to the first time I could do a frohawk on November 8th (4 months post chemo)

And Im finally started to see some curl! Or more so wave happening in the back.

Slowly but surely, my hair is coming back. I have meet new people who had no idea I went through cancer life, they just thought I have a super short haircut which is an accomplishment to me. No longer look like I was once bald. Still not sure how to “wear” my hair and I desperately try to my hair in the back into a tiny pony tail. That will be my next accomplish, hair in a pony tail, no matter how tiny it is.

Jan 29th vs July 26th so about 6 months later…

I feel like my nails look SO much better lately. Not completely back to normal but I think they’ll return sooner than I expected. The biotin has been working well I would say. I add biotin to the list of things to buy for friends going through chemo – so they have it when its over to help their hair grow back quicker.
