I didn’t expect that this would be the last time I had a full head of hair. I just assumed this would be a temporary ‘blip’ and the life-long condition that it seems to be for me. A couple of times over the past 14 years, I have nearly, but not quite, experienced full regrowth only for it to cruelly fall out again. I can speak from experience ..read more
