Topic: Ellice's Hair Journal
Let me start off by saying I have PCOS. One of the symptoms is thinning of the hair on the top of the head and crown. I've always kind of noticed a little bit of thinning since diagnosed, but I've always had so much hair that it wasn't a big deal. Until I turned 30. I used Minoxidil for a little while which kind of helped but it was a bit of an inconvenience using it. Then one night on vacation I was up late obsessing about my hair and I stumbled across someones website who has PCOS as well. She was RAVING about Morrocco Method and how she'd used it for about 9 months and could see a huge difference.
I thought I'd give it a try. I'm usually pretty bad about sticking with things (diets, etc...lol) but I told myself I would stick it out at least through the detox period to see if there was a difference.
Let me tell ya...there was a difference right away. I started this in mid-June and my hair is already thicker. Not just on the crown and hairline but everywhere. I used to wrap my ponytail holder around my hair 3-4 times, now it's now more than 2.
The current downside... My hair is really, really long so I think the detox process is taking its time. It still feels greasy, but the texture of my hair has changed as well. It frizzes a bit more easily than it used to, but my hair (which has always been stick straight) now holds curls really well. I notice it does have kind of a stringiness to it that I never had before but I think that's just part of the detox process. Certain shampoos definitely work better than others with my naturally oily scalp/hair. The Apple Cider Vinegar one is great, the Earth, and the Pine Shale are great. But the Sea Essence works FANTASTIC at ridding my hair of any dandruff. I can't remember the name of the 5th one, but it leaves my hair feeling like there's a film on it.
Conclusion: My hair is not as greasy as it was when I first started this process. And I have new hair growth that i didn't have before. I consider this a success so far!
