Hair...just Another Improvement :)

I remember always wanting to have long hair, but it would get right to my shoulders and always look really stringy since it's thin and fine, so I kept it shorter.  I lost hair each day, but I didn't think it was too much of it and knew that losing a little bit each day was completely normal.  Fast forward to now and my almost 10 months gluten-free, and not only is my hair below my shoulders, it finally looks healthy and only a few strands come out each day.  

 

I keep seeing things change that I thought were normal, and really it was my body's way of telling me, "Hey!  Something is not right here."  

 

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Great!  My daughters always wanted longer hair!  Maybe it will happen one day.  Mine got real short just before I went gluten free.  I never lost handfuls, but it sure was thin.

Me too! My hairdresser is really impressed by how much thicker and longer it's getting. Lovely, isn't it? (Although I've just gluten myself tonight for the first time :( hope it doesn't all fall out!)

Jealous. I have super fine hair, and while it doesn't come out in clumps, it definitely doesn't like to stay in my head. It's longer than it's been in ages, cause I let it grow (and now have to deal with more tangles), but thin (and thinning hair) is just part of my genetic inheritance.
I think if it was a gluten problem for me, I'd have twice as much hair by now (if only!)
