I just want to take a moment to thank everyone who chimed in on Facebook regarding my hair dilemma. In case you haven’t heard, I’ve been suffering from hair loss again. This time my edges are thinning in the front.
I’ve been down this road before. After giving birth to Princess, I noticed that the back of my hair started chipping away. I went from having a pretty healthy head of hair to see through strands. I vowed to take my vitamins religiously to prevent it from happening again with baby number two.
It’s been almost six months since I gave birth to Baby O, and I’m realizing that my hair is thinning again. Many of you have mentioned that my wig and/or wig cap could have something to do with it, which is possible. However, this problem runs in my family. My mom says her lost more and more hair after each birth. She had four of us! Either way, I’ve chosen to air on the side of caution. I no longer wear a wig cap underneath my wig. I switched to a satin scarf, which has been a lot easier on my edges. I don’t wear my wig, if I don’t have to. In other words, I usually only sport it at work.
In addition to my thinning edges, I’ve also noticed that I’ve been getting a lot of fairy knots. The cold temperatures here in New York may be leaving my locks starving for moisture. I moisturize twice a day and allow my hair to breath as much as possible.
I thought about treating myself to a blow out. But, I’ve decided to put it off for now. I’m still figuring things out with my hair. I’m happy with the progress it’s made thus far – minus the recent problem.
Check out photos of my old hair. It was much fuller and thicker. I wasn’t wearing any clip-ins or extensions.
It’s been almost two years since I decided to go natural. I still can’t believe how quickly the time flew. Check out my natural hair journey so far.
