It has been over 14 months since Jacob was born and for the last 4 months my hair has had a life of its own. At around 4 months pregnant my hair grew like weeds but also seemed to double in quantity too. Great if you have thin hair already but having an all ready thick offering I have been struggling to regain control of my locks until this last few weeks that is. Historically for me around the 4-5 month post pregnancy my hair drops out in bucket full due to the drop in estrogen levels taking a nosedive however this time round it seemed like it was never going to happen.
Finally this post baby hair loss is underway and I am finally feeling a little bit more like me.
It’s amazing I guess at just how much I have felt out of sorts with just my hair not playing fair. For me I think it has been a confidence thing of not knowing what to actually do with this super thick mop of hair and I had kind of given up with it all to be fair. This obviously has had a massive impact on how I felt about my appearance.
Recently I felt so bad about my thinning and over plucked eyebrows I had them tattooed on semi permanently of course and it did make me feel immensely better and more normal to have some real life looking eye brows.
The lady that carried out my procedure also told me of her newest line of tattoo offering and that was for bald men to tattoo on hair follicles on the scalp so it actually looks like a shaved head as opposed to being shiny and bald.
I don’t thin till that conversation I had ever realised at just how much hair for a man can impact on their confidence too. I only ever knew of hair transplant in the UK so its great to see new offerings for men and women to over come their lacking confidence.
I did read an article recently about how people were having freckles tattooed on, for me it was a step too far.
What do you think?
