I’ve Got Fringe

After 17 years of having “her” with me and finally I decided was forced to leave “her”. *sob* *sob*…that was my fringe.

Beginning the 4th month after delivery, I start noticing a tremendous fall of my hair.  I take it easily initial thinking that it would be back to normal soon.  Unfortunately, it didn’t and I’ve began to worry of the condition of my hair when seeing bulk of hairs (more than usual) after each hair wash and comb and start picking up hairs from my office chair. I can easily see my scalp where previously not. I went for hair tonic and zinc supplement (recommended by a pharmacist) hoping it would help. Blame it on the hormone imbalance and lack of nutrients. I’d stopped taking Spirulina after confinement due to laziness which I should since I’m still breastfeeding.

I went to the saloon yesterday to trim my hair shorter hoping it would reduce the problem. Least did I expect, the hair-dresser advised me to trim my fringe short for the time being until my hair condition improved. According to her, the long fringe contributes to the weight of my hair and causes it to fall easily. Furthermore, the pulling resulted from combing and tying make it worst. So without much thought she didn’t even give me time to think, I said bye bye to my long fringe. Now I looks like a weirdo and old lady. I can’t face my colleague….uwwaaaaa….Darling, Mommy, I don’t want to go to work tomorrow.

Luckily Jonathan boy can still recognize me otherwise I would go back to the saloon, pick up my hair and stick it back.  Trying to console myself, I think for the benefit of hair and not making it worse, I rather look ugly now then having to put on a wig later. I have to also spend some money to pamper my hair at the saloon as recommended by the hair-dresser (hope she’s not trying to make money rather than helping me).

    hey…still look good !!!

    And you didnt cut it that short.

    I was also concerned and also got my hair cut and mine was much shorter and also had to say bye to my long fringe.

    Just a matter of getting used to it. Why not go all the way and get a stylish bob style. It is in fashion now anyway!

    julie, you look younger! yes, fringe does make us younger…i’m not lying…and i’m sincerely telling you it’s true.
    actually i also started to realize my hair is really falling out…a lot too!
    but i thk they said during pregnancy our hair was at the thickest & fullest that’s why after giving birth, we are just “releasing” the “should-fall-off” hair 🙂 and i thk it’s quite normal!
    mmm, but maybe like ann said, why not we all get a stylish bob style…aka Posh Spice (Mrs David Beckham)or Katie Holmes (Mrs Tom Cruise) 🙂

    Ann & June – I think you guys just trying to pull my legs 😛 Yeah, I have a low self-esteem but I still take your words. Yes, I look better than before!!

    Definitely a no no for stylish bob style. I have a “disobedient” hair so they won’t stay the way I want it to be.

    Yes, I also have the same problem. The hairstylist also suggested that I trim my fringe too though my fringe’s length wasn’t the same length as my hair. He even layered the top of my hair quite short. In the end, he made me look like a shaggy dog which those hairdo with moose! Also, my fringe looked like a dog has bitten it! That’s what my hubby said…a “dog bite hair”. Luckily, he like my new hair style as he said I look younger and cute… hehe 😀

    June – Am considering…the next time I post up my new hair style, that would be bob style…hihi.

    Ryan’s mummy – Yeah, my Darling also commented that I look younger and cuter. Neh…he’s just trying to make me happy. 😛

    Anyway, after some time, I started to get used to this new hair style.

    Angela – After sometime, I get used to seeing my new look but still don’t know how to manage those fringe. Frankly, I still prefer my previous hair style.

    Btw, thanks for dropping by my Cyberh@me.
