    Another questions:
    1. Do CFS patients experience decrease in hair growth quality? Loss of hair, loss of pigment?
    2. Do you feel at least a bit better after a haircut?

    Yes there is a decrease in hair quality. My hair is not so thick as it was previously. I never cut my hair which is very long. Most of the hair loss is concentrated near lymphatic exits and particularly in an area over the left ear. Each improvement in health brought new tufts of hair and as a result I have layered bunches of hair. I don't know about the colour though as I treat my hair regularly with a mixture of indigo leaves and henna leaves. This feels very pleasant and the mind is sharper after that.

    My husband has lost a lot of hair and his won't noticeably grow back. Makes him very sad and I hope I find some day a way to reverse this. He sometimes gets a sprinkling of grey hair but they soon revert to back. He loves having his hair cut.

    As to henna, my recipe includes also indigo which is an important ingredient too.

    As to why my husband likes his hair cut : same pleasure as having a shave, to get rid of something which is vaguely ticklish. And he felt like this all his life, before he ever got sick.

    Asklipia, thank you.

    As you are not having your hair cut done, no use in asking you.

    Your husband, then: Why does he like to have his hair cut?
