My very soft texture, lifeless and flat, appeared about in March 2014. I started shedding in October 2014. It continued right through my shed (which really ended in mid September 2015, and began to go away in Mid October 2015 as my hair started regrowing nicely. My hair only just started getting more padding in November. I think I have regained about 50% of what I lost so far and I still see regrowth. I think hair growth comes in waves, like grass.
