Cut to a couple months after you have the baby, though, and your hormones kick into overdrive (or underdrive -- I don't know the exact science behind it), and ALL the hair you weren't losing while pregnant decides to come out seemingly at once! Ok, maybe not all at once, but when you find yourselves with fistfuls of hair, all over your house, your clothes, your new baby, it certainly feels like it's all at once.
BUT THAT'S NOT ALL, FOLKS!
Those lost hairs start to grow out, and if you're anything like me, you're left dealing with these awful, short baby hairs sticking out all over the place while they grow long enough to weight themselves down.
I feel like these were just getting back under control from having Em when I got knocked up with Mimi. And as my friends with even older kids like to remind me, they still deal with them on the regular.
The chia pet look was getting me down, so I decided to try something a little different and funky from my usual style.
These were my inspiration pics:
My hair has a bit of a wave to it, so I wanted something I could wash-n-wear wavy or blow dry to style straight. I love my hairdresser, and after talking it over, we came up with something similar for me.
And this is the final outcome!
Excuse me while I go take some bass guitar lessons and start my own all-girl band.
