I think i noticed a greater change during my bulimic phase, which was horrendous to say the least.
It is scary when u realise just how much what u do/dont put into your body can affect your hair.
Thanks for sharing your experience, I am glad to hear you are recovering and are well. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
This is exactly what happened to me! And I've recovered from bulimia, also. Thanks for giving me hope.
