Hair Today, Gone Yesterday

I'm sure that this post is going to seem very strange, but I feel the need to share...

A few months after the birth of Jack, I began to lose my hair. This is completely normal and I even remembered that frustrating time of losing my hair shortly after having Joshua and Abby Kate. With my first post-pregnancy hair loss, I didn't realize that my hair would actually grow back after a little while. My hair came back in at the top/middle of my hair line and on the sides near my ears. I was completely clueless about my new hair growth, until a friend told me all about it.

Here I am, 17 months after having Jack, and my hair has started growing back. (Not that I need any! I have a head full of thick hair!) Only this time, it is a bit more wild! I don't know if you can see it that well in this picture, but my new hair stands about 4-5 inches right on the top of my head. It is really noticeable when I pull my hair back into a low ponytail. I also have the same little short hairs all around my hairline that I did with the twins.

And so are the tales of my losses and gains...

Oh, I feel your pain. It's yet another one of those things that are never quite the same after childbirth. I've just started the massive shedding after having Meg. Bless her heart, everytime I look down at her she is covered in my random hair. The sad thing is, that this time I keep seeing random gray hairs :-( If only the gray ones would all fall out!!!

I'm right there with you..mine is growing back now & it always comes back darker, which is lovely after a fresh highlight! I have all of these 1/2 inch long hairs that are brown to go with my sun-kissed look! Mine are horrible on the sides of my head, especially in the morning when they stick straight out!

I just think this whole conversation is hilarious.

Can I have some of your extra hair to cover up my receding hairline?
