What Happens After Postpartum Hair Loss

What happens after postpartum hair loss?

A few months after Zeke was born, my hair started to fall out – like MEGA style. I naturally have very thick hair and typically postpartum hair loss is a nice break from having to swirl 2 hair bands around my hair in order to put it in a pony tail.  But after Zeke, my hair shed for around 4 months straight. It was a nightmare to clean (ugh, rogue hairs disgust me!) and a pain to manage. So much so I stopped going to a hair dresser because my hair was just gnarly.

Last week I needed a change in the hair department. I found a new hair dresser, who happens to have a baby the same age as Zeke. When I sat down and apologized for the state of my hair explaining the postpartum hair situation, she told me something I never realized.

So what happens after postpartum hair loss?

Whisps of hair = no fun.

Whisps of hair = no fun.

NEW hair growth. I didn’t even think about new hair and how it grows. Since I had EPIC postpartum hair loss, it is now growing in – in EPIC fashion of course. And it ain’t cute people. It’s these little strands that stick up EVERYWHERE!

How disturbing.

How annoying.

How I so shouldn’t be wearing my hair in a bun anymore until these mad whispies stop growing in!

My hair looks like that of a baby dolls that was once styled but then a little girl took her mom’s brush to the baby’s hair (don’t ask how I know this). Yeah. That’s right. This is my new hair crisis.

*sigh* It could be worse.
