I agree with HH, Soda, something to try after checking with a doctor. Another thing, I saw in the Living Right thread that you've been losing weight. Make sure you're still getting enough protein. Makes a big difference in hair and nails!

Anyway, our hormones can change, but don't assume that whatever shampoos and conditioners you've been using have stayed the same. They often change things in order to manufacture things more cheaply and don't tell anyone. Or so I've read.

I was wondering about that, too. I've been restricting my diet a lot. Plus, some of you may remember I had a few epileptic episodes starting in October and when I went to my neurologist in December, she doubled my medications and told me I also needed to take more Vitamin D and folic acid. Just a couple days ago, I started taking a vitamin supplement. Maybe that will help.

As far as "Livin' Right," I'll be reaching a weight loss milestone soon, if I keep diligent on my calorie intake and exercising. I'll wait 'til then to post it!

Ah, various medications can have a huge effect on hair and nails and even skin tone, and it's never listed as a possible side effect. But mention it to your doctor, others may have mentioned it and he/she might have ideas on how to counteract it without compromising the meds themselves.

Good luck reaching your milestone, Soda! I know what it's like. I'm working towards one myself!

I didn't ever update this, I realized today!

I got my hair cut about a month ago. It looks like a darker version of this:



At first it took some getting used to, but now I like it!

I remembered to update this thread when a lady at Starbucks told me I looked like Elisabeth Shue. I figured it was the hair - and indeed, her hair in this photo does look just like a lighter version of mine (on a good day).

(BTW, upthread, I mentioned a milestone; it was reached and surpassed, and now I've only got 10 more pounds to lose before I reach my ideal weight.)

What a shocker! You actually like it now? You were so unhappy the afternoon you got it cut!! I knew it would "grow" on you. Get it?

Pretty! Although a picture of you with your new cut would have been better, Soda! Next time, on a good day, post one! Pretty please?!

But I don't look as pretty as she does!

I'll give it a shot, though. If I ever get a good one, I'll post it.
