Telogen Effluvium Update

My hair shedding is easing up a bit, I stay throwing out my wash day shed hair so no pics yet but just trust me it is!

However, I am now left with a kinda sparse looking hairline. On a scale of 1 to Naomi Campbell it's about a 5 or a 6, but since its usually a 3 that is not good enough for me! I don't like using castor oil right after a relaxer, as it makes my strands clump together, but I want my hairline back to or close to normal by my next relaxer so will just have to deal with clumpy strands...#womp. I am still trying to be positive about this whole telogen thing...It could have been A LOT worse so for now I just need to take this in stride.

Please excuse the puffiness of my face/cheeks in this happens from time to time and will likely continue to happen til i'm about 6 months post surgery.
