On Hair

I noticed recently, while staring at some stray gray (who am I kidding, they are ALL gray under the blondie dye) – that the hair on the top of my head is getting oh-so-thin.  Like,  in the front.  Where it counts.  Where people notice.  I can see large areas of vast nothingness.  And folks, it scares me.  Like, a lot.  Because while I do not consider myself to be a vain girl – I do appreciate a solid plantation of hair on the head. 

Meanwhile?  We have ponytail.  As in, she has it.  As in…stay with me…my 19 month old daughter has enough hair for a BONAFIDE ponytail.  People.  This is a solid plantation of hair:

Meanwhile?  I got a call from my all-time-favorite-hair stylist ever.  And she is no longer with my salon.  (Yes Val – our girl is gone) As in she left.  As in, buh-bye now.  So now, I’m balding and I have no one to turn to to make it all better.  Or thicker.  Maybe Keira can share with Mama?

You might need to get your vitamin D level checked. Two ladies that I work with were experiencing hair thinning and both were VERY low on their vitamin D. After a prescription their hair is back to normal!!! :o) Ya never know!

LOVE that pony!

I, like Keira, have a solid foundation of hair. Too solid actually, but it's frizzy and curlier than a clown's. I was hoping pregnancy would straighten it a bit. Nope. Curlier.

I'm a hair stylist (with thin hair myself) so I find this hilarious! When I was younger I used to hate that I had fine hair, and now I love that I can blow dry and style is quickly, so, I've learned to appreciate it. But I totally joke that I'll be bald by the time I'm 50!! If my hair starts to thin, I'll have NONE!! lol...
