After having the damn thing, you may remember that Herself and I most noticed a large amount of hair loss some weeks or months later - I lost about 3/4 of the thickness of my ponytail and was debating shaving my head instead if it got any thinner (it's about the thickness of my finger, which is borderline for maintaining a pony really).

But ... I've got signs that it's coming back, and so does Herself!
Not a lot yet - just short little hairs are the front edge of the hairline for us both - but that's a good sign!
Turns out it causes something called "Telogen Effluvium" is to blame, and the first sign of recovery from that is - you guessed it - short little hairs appearing on the front edge of the hairline.

It'll probably take a few years to get the "full pony" back, but at least we can both be sure that it will eventually regrow.*



* Which means I'll be back to spending a small fortune on shampoo again. Sigh | :sigh:
