Marian  - I hated my hair when it grew in very curly after chemo...what I called sheep's butt curly....ugh!  I don't look good in curly hair and I spent my time blowing it straight and using straighteners.   Some time later (not sure how long) I found it easy to blow dry it straight without any product.  Now it's curly when wet, but dries straight, no problem.

H, Marian and Chris!  Good to see hear from you.  There was no change in my hair, only that it was all gray when it came in and I looked like my Dad!!!As far as life changes, there have been many for me as well, Chris, and there are times when I feel numb.  I think it is hard to celebrate being a survivor, of course we are happy, but sad for those who are not.  And sometimes it all seems like one big crap shoot:-(

My hair grew back kind of wirey and rough. I got it cut for an affair, and burst into tears - I had an old lady helmet! Now it is back to normal - too thin, with a little wave. I had a time when I thought I should use organic hair color - but I'm over that now. L'Oreal save me!

Pat, I think if you do a search with her name you will remember her.  She hadn't posted on Komen in a while, but was active in the fb group.
