Don’t get too excited. No, I didn’t go ahead and get that great Nina Clemente short do (Chicken!) but, my hair is growing back!
There is lots of new hair growing all along my hair line. Looks kind of funny close up but you can’t really tell from far.
It has also stopped falling off like it used to. I no longer fear washing my hair because it doesn’t come off in hand fulls (and I mean hand fulls!).
Even though it’s coming back, it definitely is not what it used to be. It seems to me that my hair now is like how it used to be before I reached puberty. Before it got curly and frizzy.
All those years complaining about my curly/frizzy hair and now I miss it.
Do I miss it or is it that I just haven’t quite gotten used to the hair that I have now? Maybe all it needs is a great cut to really suit whatever hair it is now.
The best advice that I did get for hair growth was from my friend Min. It’s the total opposite of what I was doing. It’s better to wash your hair EVERYDAY with a gentle shampoo. That way, the natural oils won’t clog your hair follicle and your hair will grow faster. Who knew?
I mean, it makes perfect sense if you think about it. But, having curly hair most of my life, I was told to do the opposite so I wouldn’t dry out my hair.
In the end, it is just hair (and whatever hair, I’ll take it). I am glad it is growing back though! 😉
There have been some hits and some misses (oooops!) but here are some of my most recent (within the last 3 years) memorable hair moments.
Here I am in November 2007, November 2008 and January 2009.
