From potato to curly fries: Hair re-growth after chemo

As regular readers will know, I was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma in December of 2013, and subsequently, shaved my hair off (video here).

When I was all baldy and potato looking, I naturally enough Googled how long re-growth generally takes after chemotherapy -and yes, obviously, everyone is different, but being human I absolutely love general guidelines. And the internet did not disappoint. Even better was hair stories with photo montages! Who doesn't love a montage? (*Que the montage song from Team America being stuck in your head for the rest of the day*).

So ok, by now you realise where this is going... so without further ado, here's my hair story of the last year and a half-ish -Through pictures! -

[I am very happy with my hair at the mo and that the curls have stayed -So far anyways!]
