My friends told me that after having a baby I would lose a lot of my hair. I guess you hardly lose any hair while pregnant and then all the hair you didn’t lose in 9 months decides to drop off your head after having your wee one. I was aware of this and was mentally prepared.
After having Thomas, I didn’t think I lost a crazy amount of hair like everyone said I would. I secretly thought that maybe this was another pregnancy symptom that would just magically pass me by.
It started last week. I ran my fingers through my hair in the morning – all breezy-like – and then realized I’d just pulled out a ton of my hair! Gross.
I take a shower and it’s coming out in clumps.
I brush my hair in the morning and when I get home and again when before I go to sleep and I have to clean out my brush every time and even then, I can still pull out more. Not that I want to. Although, to be honest, I’m kind of grossly fascinated. I keep running my fingers through my hair to get more. Sick, right? I can’t help it.
Here’s the clincher though: I need a haircut really badly.
My hair is way too long for a Georgia summer. I would officially like to request that just the bottom three inches of my hair fall out from now on. Also…please highlight yourself.
