Remember the Great Hair Loss of 2013? After that post it got even worse. For months and months I would pull huge clumps of hair out every time I showered or brushed it. And my hair got thinner and thinner. I was getting bald spots. Oh, it was dreadful. Oh, the tears that were shed. I was afraid I was going to have to buzz it all off and start fresh. But then wo to whoever had to look at me because I'm not 100% sure about my head shape. I have corners. Like, legitimate corners.
And I tried everything. Any suggestion people made I would do. I took fish oil pills, I took prenatal vitamins, I rubbed coconut oil all over my head, I added more fat to my diet, I massaged my scalp every night, I washed it less, I washed it more. I did everything short of sacrificing squirrels under a harvest moon, and still it fell out. I had luminous skin but no hair.
And then suddenly...HAIR!
Seemingly overnight I went from losing fistfuls of it to sprouting it like a Chia Pet. I have regrowth upon regrowth. Little wisps of hair are shooting out at all angles. My head looks like one of those Tesla balls. And I love it. Never have I cared less about fly-aways, because it means that my hair is back.
The downside is more cowlicks. My scalp is a swirling mess of them. But at least they're covering up the corners. I'm not kidding! They're there!
