Kate and I are having hair issues...totally different, yet of equal importance.
Kate's hair is finally starting to grow. Each section of her hair is in a race to grow the fastest and let me tell you, it's no where near a tie. The back section, unfortunately, seems to be winning, with the sides in a close second, and the top and front are battling it out for last. Add those results up and you end up with one gnarly looking mullet.
Now, through my 'mommy eyes', she's absolutely adorable no matter what. And I'm trying not to cut it because the ultimate goal is for it to grow longer, even if it is at an uneven rate.
M to the Izza, on the other hand, keeps insisting that we get it "trimmed" or "shaped". Shaped?! When has he EVER used the word 'shaped' when talking about hair? Get your manhood in check buddy. I try to explain to him that it would defeat the purpose. But really, I'm new to the whole parent thing and don't know if I should get it trimmed or not. Or maybe just a little to even it up a bit? I really don't want to, but it is rather crazy looking. What's a mama to do?
Why is it that my hair seems to be falling out in large amounts every time I wash and dry it?! Seriously ya'll, when I go to rinse it or blow dry it, I could probably French braid the amount that comes out. Okay I exaggerated a bit, but it IS a lot. Plus, I have no idea how to French braid. I mean, I realize it's normal for you to shed some strands, but dang. I know I can't be the only one whose hair does this. Actually I know I'm not, because growing up my sisters would always leave beautiful 'hairscapes' plastered to the walls of our shower. (Picture breathtaking mountainous landscapes made with long strands of hair.) So maybe it runs in the fam. BUT, I really think that my hair falls out more than most. If I try hard to pinpoint when it started, I'd say it was after I had Kate. So maybe it's a hormone thing. But whatever the reason, it's getting on my nerves, and my feet, and the bottom of my socks. For instance, after blow drying it, my bathroom floor seems to have acquired a beautiful shag rug...great for decor, not so great for when Kate drops her bouncy ball and picks it up looking like Headless Hattie.
I've heard of different vitamins and supplements that help with this but were wondering if they really work. At this rate, I'll be bald by Christmas. I guess I should polish up on my Sinead O'Connor lyrics.
