LOL I knew that'd grab your attention! Well, last week I posted to a thread re: hairloss and what we all did about it....well, I got my hair all chopped off!! I mean the hairdresser took my ponytail and chopped it right off, it was laying on the floor and I looked at it like it was my arm!!!
Well, all I can say is, it's perfect...no curling, no blowdrying, no fartin' around with it....just put a little mousse or whatever in and tousle it up a bit and voila, done in 2 mins flat--perfect for us lazy thyroid-challenged people!!!
It's pretty bad when all the girls at the corner store all comment on how great it looks, and that has got to tell you something---that you looked like total crap before!!!!
Go for it girls, get it all chopped off, you won't be sorry and your shower drains will thank you for it! My hair still falls out a little bit, but maybe 3 hairs instead of 300 per day...this is awesome...and I have healthy hair! It's been a while, but I have it!
I know that was a hard decision to make, but I am proud for you! I ended up getting about 4 inches cut off last year when I was losing the most. Now that my dosages are more optimal, I am getting baby hairs all over.
For those looking to do the same thing - look for a place that will donate to Locks of Love (an organization that uses the hair for wigs for cancer patients). It is a wonderful thing to do!!!
Well, everyday I look at my hair now (been 6 days since it was chopped) I can't believe the change. My husband couldn't put his finger on it, he said it didn't make me look older, didn't make me look 20, so I filled it in for him...I look healthy and normal?!?! My face is opened up and I don't have a droopy look to me anymore...this is helping me.
I definitely don't miss the hair falling out, as it was really bad...I love the fact that I can brush my hair and not worry about how much of it is clinging to the back of my shirt!
Like I said in an earlier posting, I feel liberated. Plus, my calcium levels are normal right now and that has me feeling the best I've felt since Feb. Positive change is good...and I am looking forward to a nice fun summer with my kids...then I have to find a new job...I just closed the doors to my cleaning business because I am unable to do that kind of work anymore.
Wasn't much of a trim, it was a makeover of sorts...I had hair down to the middle of my shoulder blades and was thick and heavy. It was downright gross. Now it's cut hip..its very short...like an inch at the back...all you do is spike it all over by running your fingers through it upwards and on the sides, then your bangs you straighten with your fingers and smooth them on the sides of your forehead...easiest hairdo of my life!
Pretty close to a crew cut LOL but not THAT short on top!
