Postpartum hair?

I am curious - How is everyone's hair?

I feel like I am still shedding out lots but am probably through the worst of the postpartum hair loss (I always shed lots anyway). How about you?

I first noticed the fuzzies (regrowth visible just along hairline) about a month ago. With DD this freaked me out!! At least I was expecting it this time. Anyone else?

Sometimes I find one of my greys have fallen out, but it's dark blonde at the root end... gives me false hope that I'm regressing, lol. Are you dying your hair? Do you notice anything is different than before baby? Did you cut it shorter because of baby, do you wear it up, is your flatiron missing you?

Anyone shaving more/less? I suddenly have a patch of dark coarse hairs on one of my ankles that wasn't there before, weird.

:afro: :hairraising: :hippy1:

I'm finally through the worst of the shedding I think. I clogged the drain in the shower a couple times but it seems to have leveled out! No other major changes that I notice. I don't color my hair and knock on wood I don't really have grey hairs yet (I'm 30...it could come any time I'm sure) but I shed like I was molting!

I am still shedding like crazy. It didn't start until about 4 months PP though this time, so I've only been shedding for just over a month!

I did chop my hair off too, enough to donate. I like the short hair for the summer! Still takes me just as long, if not longer to do though!

The week before Rory was born I chopped mine off and donated 11" to Locks of Love Smile
