**Update** Accutane - 2 months in

I have been back on accutane for two months and thought it would be cool to track my progress. When I started I had lite/moderate acne. It was not cystic but my skin bruises quite easily. Being a former Accutane patient I decided to try it again. The first time I was on the drug I only took it for two months, this time I plan to complete the entire treatment.

Some common side effects of Accutane are severe depression, excessively dry skin, hair loss and bone issues. So far, I have experienced only two side effects. In my opinon, they are minimal. I have extremely dry lips(Carmex balm is my best friend) and dry peeling skin on my face. I guess those are both a result of dry skin so that's one side effect. I have no signs of depression and my hair is progressing quite nicely. I have continued to work out regularly without any bone issues.

I have no pimples whatsoever. This excites me because I injest MSM water and 7500 mcg's of biotin daily. I still have faint dark spots but they are fading as we go. I have attached an image to track where we are.
I will check back in at month four. Toodles!

Growth Aids.....MegaTek Step up!

Hello's been a minute but I thought I would check in for a second. I have been very low key with the hair as of late. When I took the last weave out (Brandy pro 10) I have been wearing a bun with my hair baggied underneath. I ended up getting a small cut labor day weekend to get rid of some dead ends...and I have been bunned up since.
Well I decided that this was a great time to start with a growth aide. I started with Megatek...So far...the only thing I can say is Megatek DEFINATELY increases thickness. I have only been using this consistent for about a month and my hair is noticibly thicker.
I will post pics tonight of where my hair was 2 weeks ago when I straightened (gotta love that Chi) so that I can see if Megatek is TRULY all that people claim that it is.
For the record...I use it STRAIGHT. I apply it to my scalp and edges after I CW every other day before I bun up. be continued.....
