Balding

Apparently 3-4 months after you have a baby your hair falls out.

Apparently 3-4 months after I have a baby my hair is not just falling out, it's committing suicide. They're jumping ship left and right. I find hair everywhere. In Summer's neck rolls, on my pillow, in the tub. When I wash it I pull out gobs of hair by the handful.

CSI would have no trouble scrounging up a DNA sample around here. Good thing my Dyson sucks it all up like a champ.

In other hair related news, I hate mine. My last cut was pretty awful, and too short. I once got my hair cut but a girl in our ward who does hair and used me as a hair model. I looooved it. Thing is, she charges like 80 bones normally, and I just don't know if I can pay that much for a haircut. Although, is having hair I like and don't curse every morning worth 80 bucks? Probably. Especially since I only get it cut like every 6 months. Which is so weird to me. I have no problem shelling out cash for skincare or makeup. Why does my hair get the shaft? Ha, that's a pun. Anyway, I have crazy cowlicks all over my head, which only adds to my dispair. I don't know why I'm telling you this. Mostly to get it off my chest I supposed. I've been hating my hair for awhile now, but I just don't know what to do. Any ideas?

Well if you only get it cut twice a year, its really not that bad. A cut plus tip will cost you about 200 bucks a year or about 16 bucks a month. Eric spends 12 bucks every two weeks for his haircut! Almost 300 bucks a year! I need to start cutting his hair.

I had that $80 haircut once and now I can't decide whether to splurge again or not.

Oooh I know what you mean, I hate the hair falling out stage. Mine wasn't ever that bad though, just in the front. So my friend Marianne in our ward cuts hair at her home and I don't think she charges very much. Her email is ham0152 at gmail dot com. You should email her to see what she charges. She lives in Glendale. Good luck!

The falling out hair sucks, but the growing back in is worse! I feel like I have a lions mane as it feathers back in.

I hear you! I know when mine falls out it does feel like handfuls. I'm always amazed that I still have hair after a shower.

I had to part my hair in some funky, 80's style way for months to hide my thinning patches. The shedding does stop eventually but one year later I still sport my gnarly 2 inch bangs. Actually, I think they're finally 2.3 inches long now. Why do they take SOO long to grow back?! Blast!

You just got something like $80 worth of beef jerky out of nowhere. Make it dinner a few nights this week and go get the haircut that makes you feel lovely.
