What is it about being pregnant that makes us want to chop our hair off really short? It’s either while you’re pregnant or right afterwards that you want to make a change. Hormones? Maybe…sounds like a good excuse.
I had my hair cut pretty dang short before I even got pregnant so now my son is almost one and I look like the Julia Roberts version of Tinkerbell. I’m not gonna say I don’t like it because I really do! But when a woman struts by me with long flowy locks or a cute little pony tail, it makes me think “why did I do this?” Now I have to go through the agony of growing it back. I’ll get there in about…eh…three years 🙁
Another issue I dealt with was wanting to color my hair. Is it safe? Who knows. When I asked my Doc, she said that there was no evidence saying that it was unsafe but that I should wait till after I gave birth. Well now I’m nursing so isn’t it still unsafe? Grrr….
Well here’s my solution…feather extensions! Yes I said feathers. I was just getting a little trim at the salon and all the stylists had feathers in their hair! I have to admit I was like a little girl in a candy shop. There were so many styles and colors and it only takes a minute to clamp on a bead and a couple dollars…tada! Instant gratification. I wish I knew about this when I was pregnant, I would have had a different feather every week. I love the fact that you can’t even tell it’s in there when you wash and style your hair. You can even curl them!
