Rudee - you're killing me!

I have always *****ed about my hair (too curly, too thick, too frizzy). Then when I had the alopecia I VOWED to just embrace it if it would just stop falling out (I had 2 quarter size bald patches and 1 that was about 3x1.5 PLUS diffuse loss throughout).

You dont know what ya got til its gone! That awakening came about 6 months before finding this site. Timing is everything!

It used to depress me that there was so much gray but after losing so much hair after having both of my children I realized that going gray is fine with me. I had two almost bald patches in the front over each eyebrow. I'd rather that over losing my hair any day!

And yes, it was probably 6 weeks of CG before I noticed any really marked improvements but it was last summer that I had my big breakthrough. Only washing and conditioning once a week by necessity made me realize I was conditioning and doing my hair too often. I'm much happier with it now and I'm closing in on 2 yrs of CG. Lots of experimentation and reading to get me here.

Rudee - Whatever you're doing, it looks fabulous!
I am cracking up here. Of course, I could not wait for your reply so today here is what I did: cowash, conditioned, SMU gel, then boots. Against all curly odds - it looks ok. I have never put a gel on my hair before a cream product. Go figure.
