Its still me, I think it depends on what type of chemo you get, if you find my history -- you can see what advice Repunzel gave me when I asked. If you are doing AC (I believe) -- yes they believe (and admit its not scientific) that PCC has a better success rate. For me, they told me my chemo regime had good success with both, I went for the machine. Just to have one less thing to stress me. I still have/had surgery to sort out, which I am doing after chemo.
Vivianlu - thank you for the advice ... I will comb before washing -- just trying to minimize combing and washing. In the end, not sure it will help to shed less, just will help mentally.
SoniaL -- it must have been difficult to cut off your tail. Glad to hear your top is growing in, sounds like you have a leg up. I have appreciated all of your advice along the way.
I ordered a topper just in case I need it (and to maybe cover up some roots on special occasions) . I was able to find a topper that doesn't have an clips. I am still waiting for it to be delivered - it was from thinhairthick.com. Fingers crossed. I also plan a visit to the Lucinda Ellery salon in NYC in early Nov after I finish my last chemo -- I found the link on the repunzel site and it looks like they can do some interesting things. In short, I have a plan B.
