VIDEO: Mom Tip of the Week: How To Deal With Those Pesky Baby Hairs


I don’t know about you, but I hate my postpartum hair. Is it still considered “postpartum” when you have an almost-one-year-old? I don’t really know, but regardless, it still sucks.

Pregnancy is one long 9-month tease filled with thick, shiny, luscious locks and then you pop out a baby and BAM! It’s one giant beauty suck-fest. Drier skin than you’ve ever had in your life, bags under your eyes (FYI: I’ll be addressing this in my next video) and hair that is literally falling out in clumps and duller than dirt.

But, even worse than all of this (and I’m sure you’re wondering what could possibly be worse…) is when your hair finally starts to grow back in and you have crazy spike hairs sticking up everywhere. It’s a real problem.

But, don’t you worry your pretty little head (OK, I swear it will be pretty again one day when the hair all grows back! …Or at least that’s what I keep telling myself…), because I’ve come up with a few solutions to deal with those pesky baby bangs until your hair is returned to its former splendor. Check out my tips!
