I love my receding hairline

Wednesday, 10 June 2015

Cheers to our receding hairlines and the handfuls of hair that go down the drain each time we wash our luscious locks, cheers to the greys, the messy hair and the sexy buns. Okay, maybe I'm not in love with my receding hairline, but I never thought I'd be okay with it.

Looking more like my dad except female, my fiancĂ© and I giggle about who has the best receding hairline. My hairdresser warned me of these days, whilst I sat there with a big belly in her chair, I must admit I laughed it off. But here I am, having just blow dried my beautiful brown locks, glistening with a number of greys, whilst watching my five and a half month old shuffle (still figuring out the crawling) collect handfuls of my hair looking up at me in confusion.  As his hair grows, mine falls out, how lovely!

So why does out hair fall out?
Hormones, hormones, hormones! Yes, those cheeky little buggers that drive us women nuts. The hair loss kicks in around 12 weeks postpartum, and will last for a number of months. And then you'll be blessed with tiny little bangs that will look like you've decided to shave just around your hairline, thinking it'll be the next big thang! :-P On a positive note though ladies, my shaven hairline fad is on the mend at five and a half months postpartum. So there's hope!

Is there anything we can do to help it?
Not really, but cups of chamomile tea to reduce any stress may help. At least that's what I keep telling myself.

All I can say is love your receding hairline! Not every woman gets the chance.

You are a beautiful reminder that there are so many more positive sides to pregnancy than negative ones. The last 6 words you have written in this blog had more impact on me than you realise, so thank you <3 I have several friends who will never have the chance to know what is like to have their own child and go through the amazing experience of pregnancy. You have really opened my eyes to appreciate and love the process more than dwell on the sickness and small side affects. You are right "Not every woman gets the chance" and I am one of the lucky ones. You inspire so many women every day! keep it up :)
