Been a while

Hi all,

It's been a while since I've been on here, and I hope everyone is doing well on their treatments or are recovering well for those of us luck enough to be on the other side.!!

I wanted to post a pic of my hair....it's started coming back through properly at beginning of Sept and I think it's a pretty good amount of growth.!! I've been using Watermans Grow Me shampoo (bought off amazon) and I love it.!!!
