Hair Loss Update: I love my hair again!

Earlier this year I didn’t think that I would ever say these words again, but I love my hair!

Hair Loss Update: I love my hair again!

Hair Loss Update: I love my hair again!

I really love my hair. It’s such a great feeling. And I’m getting my confidence back! And I am loving my short hair. Now that is something I never thought I’d ever say in a million years. And I went even shorter after the big chop (that you can read about HERE).

If you’re not familiar with my hair loss story, you are welcome to pop over HERE. The following pics will also make a lot more sense then.

Look at all that hair!! I still can’t believe that my hair is so thick and healthy.

The ‘going-on-bald’ patch I had on my head is gone! (Yes, there are way too many exclamation marks in this post, but I am just so damn happy and excited. Forgive me.)

I also have my curls back. And they are back with a vengeance!

This has been quite a ride. Not a fun one. I know I’m extremely lucky that it all turned out the way it has.

And it’s all thanks to the following…

The Renewal Institute

Skin Renewal Pretty Please Charlie

I told you about how Skin & Body Renewal helped me get to the root of my problem (I know; I love puns) in the hair loss post I mentioned earlier. Their love and care has meant the world to me. Plus they were the ones that taught me the importance of supplementing your diet with vitamins and minerals, especially during times of extreme stress. I am now that annoying person who says ‘do you take supplements’ as soon as anybody mentions any health issue. And I’m not even sorry! I now pop my pills every day and I am better off for it. Skin Renewal shared my story and info on how stress can effect your health on their blog HERE.

I love it!! See you again soon.

Short hair, do(n’t) care? Plus a hair loss update.

Two weeks ago I gave my husband the scissors and I told him to cut. I knew that if it wasn’t done immediately, I wouldn’t have the guts and I would drag it out for even longer than I already have. My husband took 3 huge gulps of red wine and started cutting …

Short hair, do(n’t) care? Plus a hair loss update.

If you’re not familiar with my extreme hair loss story, this is it in a nutshell: stress and trauma caused me to lose about two thirds of my hair. The hair that was left became dry and brittle and it seemed like I was losing my natural curl. A huge shock also caused my hair to weaken at the root and once my hair reached a certain length, it broke off. For the last 6 months or so I have been trying my best to hide the hair loss by tying my hair up in the most pathetic little ponytail you can imagine. I couldn’t wear my hair loose as I was sporting a super fabulous 80’s style mullet. The only long hair left on my head was on the bottom half of my head.

Thankfully my hair started to grow again!! My hair is full and healthy and my curls are back with a vengeance. Thank you Trichotin!! Find my introduction to Trichotin over HERE.

But that pony looked horrible. The dead hair had to go. I was extremely calm that Tuesday evening when I gave my husband the scissors. I sat at the kitchen counter and gave him instructions to cut everything the same length. My hair was shorter than its been in years! But I was okay. Kind of.

So on Saturday I went to Tosca Hair and Beauty in Tyger Valley and my AMAZING stylist coloured and cut my hair into a style. Short. Very short. Thank you Tosca for taking such good care of me!! You guys truly are amazing and know exactly how to work with my hair (and with me!).

I went home and had a little cry. The short hair makes me feel 12 years old. The 12-year-old me that was gatvol of being bullied for my bushy hair and thought that if I cut it short, the bullying would stop. It didn’t.

But, for now, this is me. And my hair is healthier and stronger. And soon, I will be too.

My family and friends all think I look great and my sister decided that my new style needs a headband. I think she’s right. It’s still taking some getting used to, but I’ll get there. What do you think?
