When I got a little older Mom permed my hair. I still question this decision considering I have naturally curly hair. I guess it was the thing to do.
When I was in high school I wanted big beautiful curls, not the tiny messy curls I naturally have. So I got a perm from some beauty school flunky at JC Penny's in the Ardmore Mall, then cried as I left because the curls where even tighter than I had to begin with.
In my 20's I straightened my hair. I would spend hours working on it.
Now in my 30's, I've finally accepted my hair for what it is. I don't perm, I don't straighten, I just embrace it.
Then I got pregnant.
Due to a spike in your estrogen level, you loose little hair while pregnant. I had thick beautiful hair.
Now, post pregnancy my hair is a mess. That fabulous estrogen level has plummeted and I now find my hairs everywhere, EVERYWHERE. I thought our dog shed a lot, now it's me. I loose it by the handfuls. My ponytail is wimpy and my hair is just...yuck. It should be back to normal within a year. Just one more way my body has suffered for these great babies.
Speaking of babies, here they are just two weeks old. So tiny.
