So after I had Henry I noticed I was shedding a bit more than normal. However, it keeps getting worse and now it seems my hair is falling out by the handful. I take a shower and it looks like we have an animal in the shower**. And there are hair balls/clumps (ew) all over me, the house, and Henry!
What sucks, besides the fact that my hair is noticeably thinner, is that Henry seems to get my really long hair stuck in his hands, and we don’t want that. Every night before bed it is an appendage check. Any hairs wrapped around his fingers, wrists, toes, penis….because he had a hair tightly wrapped around his thumb once and it scared us so we check everything!
So I am seriously thinking of cutting my hair shorter. Not really short, just shorter than what it is now (which is probably still a good 6+ inches). I don’t know what I am hoping to accomplish by this, maybe I think that a shorter cut will make my hair healthy again or maybe it is just that I am sick of my long hair. I am always pulling my hair back and have yet to find a style I just love with my longer hair. Seriously, it just feels like if hangs there…ok, yes that is what it is suppose to do, but look how sad my hair looks:
I am leaning towards a medium length bob-ish cut or some variation of that. I like it because it is not too far out of my comfort zone and not a drastic change. I think I do need some change and this may very well be just the right amount of change. Plus I can still pull it back.
(Except not with short bangs)
What are your thoughts: long or short? Any other suggestions for hair styles? Any products/supplements I can use to stop/reduce all this damn shedding?!?!
