Is pregnancy making your hair HORRIBLE?!?

...IDK WHAT is going on, i think it's pregnancy related - i've never in my life had hair like this, not that i'd ever brag about my hair, but the texture is awful, i can't do A THING with it, and i all of the sudden have all these short fly away pieces in the front...
Im choosing to keep it a bit longer because i have this dumb theory that when i'm heavier, i look 'thinner' with longer hair! it's so bad even putting it up is turning impossible!

well enough complaining, today my DH bought me flowers, a mother's day card, itunes GC and a kohls GC (he knows how bad i'm going to need maternity clothes!) i thought it was SO SWEET! we went to this botanical garden in the area, so i got some walking exercise in and now i'm just chilling - watching all these baby/mom movies on tv guide network (Look Who's Talking comes on at 7:00!) ... since my apetite is coming back we're making a london broil and pasta salad! can't wait!

i hope you are all enjoying your Mother's Days~!!!!!!!!!!!!

lol. Yup, one of the GREAT things about pregnancy :upsidedown: I am 28 and already have to dye my hair to cover up the grays each of my pregnancies have given me. Oh hormones, and what havoc they reap on your body.

My hair is suuuuuuuuuuper dry now. Sucks. I usually wash it every day because its so oily naturally... now its not oily. Its dry and fried.
Ah well, silly hormones!

I don't shampoo everyday and recently noticed that my hair does better when I go every 4 days. I still shower, I just don't wash my hair. Washing your hair strips it of its natural oils. For the longest I've been going every 2-3 days but suddenly I can go 4 days. Well, expect for this weekend. Went to the beach yesterday and totally needed to wash my hair afterwards from all the sand and salt! lol

Happy Mother's Day ladies! Smile
