Losing your hair.
Why my baby made me lose my hair and grow grey hair.
No one seems to talk about it, but I'm here to tell you ladies that oh yes, it happens!
Right after I came home from the hospital with BabyMo I started losing my hair by the handfuls.
And I'm not exaggerating.
It looked like a Tiger had coughed up a fur-ball in my sink.
That's how much hair I was losing each and every day.
I figured it was no big deal and that it would stop. It happened when I had baby #1 too.
Eventually it did stop, four months later.
By then, I actually had bald spots on my head.
Oh ya, and one of my best friends was getting married in a few weeks. Oh ya, and I was in the wedding. Oh ya, that means formal pictures.
Bring it on.
That's when I noticed these little teeny tiny hairs starting to grow back.... halleluiah!
(They aren't hard to miss- they are all grey.... uh, white actually)
And yeah... I took that photo this morning.
True photo (someone call TMZ).
Those, my bloggy friends, are the new hairs that have finally grown in.
Seriously? At 34 all of my new hair is growing in white?
Okay, maybe not ALL of it, but most of it.
This is a pretty TRUTHful Tuesday, isn't it?
I hope I haven't scared you all away yet.
The truth IS that babies do strange things. My baby is adorable. So I'm okay with having weird hair right now. But, I'll be seeing a stylist next week - so I'm feeling okay for now.
I've had long hair almost my entire life. Babies 1 and 2 have changed my hair forever and I realize that super long hair is just not my thing anymore.
I'm not going directly to the "Golden Girls" haircut just yet, but I'll be there in another 30 years for sure.
Until then, I'm looking for some ideas on cute short (or shorter) haircuts.
And ideas on your favorite stylists and styling products.
