My Story Of Losing And Regrowing Hair

In this blog, I’m going to outline how I dealt with my hair loss issues and the severe scalp problems that followed.  It’s my hope that something here will resonate with and help you. If you’ve found this blog, I know how frustrated you are.  I can honestly say that my periods of hair loss were among the hardest hurdles in my life.  It sounds silly, really. I used to tell myself.  “you’re healthy.  You have two healthy children. What is wrong with you.  Hair is external. It’s just keratin and protein.  Get over it already.”  But, of course, this is easier said than done.  As a woman, as sad as it is to admit, so much of my self esteem and self worth was tied up in the way that I looked.  I didn’t expect to look like a beauty queen and never had.  But, I did want to look normal.  I didn’t want for people to have to do it double take when they looked at me and wonder if I were ill or on chemo or something.  My husband would tell me that it wasn’t as bad as I thought, but photos back from that time period show a definite noticeable change in my appearance. (OK maybe people didn’t run when they looked at me, but I felt awful about myself and weirdly ashamed.).  This is a very weird thing about hair loss, but it made me feel like I had done something wrong or was missing something.  Anyway, enough of my going and on and on.  If I haven’t bored you already, you can read my story by clicking here or scrolling down. I have to tell you, that I’m by no means an expert and I can’t offer any guantees or represent any “typical results.”  (If you have any questions about this, please read the terms of service and affiliate disclosures)
