My hair, that is.
I had heard that after you have a baby your hair falls out. But I didn't believe it. I mean, while I was pregnant my gums didn't bleed, I never peed my pants, and I could always still put my own shoes and socks on. So I figured that this was just one of those things that people say but that doesn't actually to happen to anyone except a select few.
An average pull for my hairbrush.
I guess I'm one of those "select few."
Seriously, I should be bald by now. If I lose this much hair every day, how is it possible that I'm not bald? I brush my hair more often now, because I'm tired of finding my hair strewn about the house. I brush it in the morning when I first wake up. I brush it before I take a shower. I brush it after I take a shower and while/after blow drying it. I brush it before I go to bed. And my hair. is. everywhere.
The bigger picture: hair, hair, everywhere!
I've taken to brushing it over the bathroom sink, because at least that way I can gather it all up and throw it away. I pull it out of the shower drain basket-thingy (anyone know that that thing is actually called?). I find it on my clothes. I find it in my daughter's fists. And, heaven forbid, sometimes I find it in my food.
Has anyone else out there experienced this? How long will it last? Can I do anything to encourage my hair's roots to stay put? I'm usually not one to use a million beauty products, but this...this, I cannot handle much longer.
Maybe I should just get pregnant again. That might work.
