I thought I would share the progress....
My fiance was actually the first to notice a bald spot on the side of my head. All I knew is that I was losing fistfuls of hair. Every time I combed my hair a ton came out, the lose strands tangled the hair horribly on top of that. After a while my hair started feeling "lighter", and like there was just less to it. When I combed it I had less to grab, and when I bunned it less thickness to twist. Just like last time I lost hair. It is funny how you can feel the slightest change.
When I washed my bangs, even those were falling out....a bunch of really short hairs coming out in the sink. And when I washed my full head it looked like a rat had died in the shower. All this actually made me wonder why I was not completely bald already. How could I lose so much hair and still have hair left?
My doctor must have thought the same and asked me to collect some hair until the next appointment, as well as count the hair strands. When I brought in enough hair to knit a puppy out of it, she believed me.
On the left you can see the hair I collected in roughly ten days, and on the bottom left what I lose within a day, usually a bigger clump in the morning and slightly less in the evening.
Needless to say I bunned it the whole day, because it would get into everything. I even found the hairs in my baby's diaper. I also made good use of my knitted calorimetry headbands....to cover the sides of my head.
Maybe I should start selling them as "postpartum hair loss cover up".
I have another picture here of when it started. I was nursing my baby. Which leads us back to why I am doing this. Sure, it is really stressful to see my hair come out in clumps. But in this case I really want to say "it is just hair!". Take it from someone who has dedicated multiple websites to beautiful long hair.
Speaking about growing back - the good news is I actually have fuzz growing in. It looks a little like I buzzed my temples ._., someone even joked that it looks like one of those new hair cuts where a section in the front is kept short. The hair on the side of my head, so a little past the temples is not very long anymore. It used to be down to where my hemline is, but now I have layers ranging from shoulder length to waist length..very odd. Maybe I really should pretend it is an intended hair style, braid the sides or something ^^.
I will keep updating on the new hair. One more thing I have noticed is that I don't have as much hair coming out of my bangs anymore, but maybe that is because I shed most of my bangs... XD
