Let's talk about hair for a minute. Specifically mine, for we have problems.
I knew everything to expect before getting pregnant. I knew about the weight gain, the muscle aches, the swelling, the break-outs, the whole nine yards. I even knew about the hair loss after having the baby and I was cool with all of it. For the record, I have crazy-thick hair. Everyone fawns over it wishing for my pelt but trust me, it's not all Pantene Pro-V over here. Thick hair is hard to style and it's HOT in the summer. Woe is me, I know. So I really wasn't worried at all about possible hair loss after being pregnant.
About two months after Theo was born it started. I was in the shower washing my hair and clumps of hair came out. I wish I had taken a picture because it honestly looked like a family of squirrels exploded around the drain. No biggie, I thought. Less hair to worry about, easier to manage. Look at me, going with the flow!
Cut to a year later. I now am blessed with 1 1/2 inch CHUNKS of hair scattered all around my hairline and throughout my head. If I pull my hair back (which is a preferred method 95% of the time) I have wings, about six of them. And heaven help me if it's humid out oh dear GOD. I got my hair done two weeks ago and a direct quote from my stylist upon attempting to highlight and cut my hair: "Oh. . .oh MY. Um. . .well. . .this will certainly test my blending skills!" When asked how long it would take to grow out? "We will find styles to make it less obvious." NOT A DIRECT ANSWER KTHXBAI.
So I beg you, if you have had this type of problem please commiserate with me. How did you get through it? And hats are not an option.
