Thanks, ladies for the kind comments on my pics. I forgot to point out that I did not start off with a thick head of hair - I wore it shoulder length to help with the fullness. So if anyone down the road has a similar head of hair and wonders if they should cold cap, they can see my pics and decide. I did it because of the Taxotere. If I had been on a less intense drug, I might have skipped the cold cap.
Elastogelgirl - love the visor pics! You are creative with your head coverings. But I think you are regrowing a nice head of hair.
Hanging In - I, too, am checking for other body hair - any sign of life, so to speak. Hooray on the eye brows and lashes.
Hopfull - thanks for the suggestion. I decided a while back that I would be satisfied with a cute short hair style when my hair gets stronger. Maybe something that will grow back nicely.
Mquara - Regarding the babying of the hair - I agree; I am tired of it. I never dreamed it would be this much work. I do love the Toppik powder. It is so easy to use and I look much better with it. Hang in there. Someone said it won't take as long as you think for your hair to grow and for you to be happy with it. I agree. Based on what a handful of recent posters have said and who have done similar drug regimens, I am hopeful that I am just a few months away from great improvement. I try to distract myself with reading and sports on tv and just normal conversations with friends and family. It's just easier not to think about my hair.
Fastgirl - so cool that we finished the same time. Were you on TC like me?
SoniaL- I can't advise on the hairspray. But welcome and good luck with everything.
LowCountry - I had to LOL about asking your husband to look for regrowth. That's my husband's job, too. He doesn't love it because he doesn't want to tell me that he doesn't see anything. He's taller than me so he can see it better than me. You and I are nearly on the same schedule with the same drugs.
EmHaich52- Sorry you had so much trouble. Are you drinking lots of fluids days before chemo? Eating breakfast before? Maybe let the cap get a couple degrees warmer?
Take care, everyone!
