Now that I’m a bit over two months post-partum, I thought it would be a good idea to take a few photos of what my hair looks like right now. The post-partum shedding hasn’t started yet (maybe I will get lucky and not have it? I don’t have anything to lose!) so once it does, I’ll need something to compare it to. Many women report that their hair appears thicker while pregnant since the hair remains in a “resting” stage to due hormonal changes. You’ll recall in my post about pregnancy hair, that, uh, wasn’t the case with me. I didn’t shed anything significant, so I guess that’s something to be grateful for. However, I certainly didn’t perceive any sort of thickening effect, unfortunately.
Here’s what my hair looks like right out of the shower, not brushed, just clipped up:
You can really tell when it’s wet the extent of my loss; it’s mainly concentrated just pass the front hairline on the top of my head.
And here it is when it’s dry. I don’t have any product in it except for some inexpensive volumizing mousse.
I really can’t decide if it looks any worse than my last update. Maybe slightly? Would love any opinions. The light is shining directly onto the top of my head so it may look ever-so-slightly exaggerated.
Here is a pic from the front:
I’m terribly bad at selfies, so I’m not sure what that face was all about.
I always feel so much better after I put on my favorite topper (my $113 synthetic topper from Gallery of Wigs, color Medium Brown)! In just a few short seconds I go from “blah” to feeling 1000 times more presentable.
And there you have it – me from start to finish. It’ll be interesting to see how my hair changes over the next few months as my hormones become more normalized. I’m hoping to at least maintain what I have now; my toppers are the clip-in types and I need to keep enough hair to be able to wear them!
