For a lot of us our pride and joy is our hair. For me, I have had a love hate relationship with my hair. It is always frizzy, always crazy, I am always fed up with the curls. So, when I died it blonde, I loved the color the platinum hair, but what I couldn’t stand was that it fried my already stupid porous curly hair.
That is one reason that after 5 years of being a blonde, I decided to color my hair. But it is not the only reason. No, there are more. I know I do NOT need to JUSTIFY my hair change to ANYONE. However, I feel like there is a part to this that I need to address badly. SO, why did I dye it?

One, I do not have the time nor the damned patience for the care, processed blonde hair needs. With one baby in and out of the hospital, the other baby boy constantly needing appointments and needs me to help him with a lot, I am lucky to get a shower. EW.
Therefore, that is a reason. Time constraint is an issue.
I have been feeling less pretty lately, I know it is due to my body still reacting to the allergic reaction and prednisone and steroid shot. I have a bit of moon face and I look pregnant because of some weight gain. All the weight I lost after baby was born was gained back and then some. I hide it well, but really look at my arms. I eat everything in sight still and have a constant craving for chocolate chips. Why? Prednisone is a hell of a drug.
I found a blonde hair wrapped around my baby’s finger. If the light didnt hit it just so I may not have seen it. OH GAWD. That is awful. And so I grabbed a dark box of hair color.
But this is the last reason, no, unfortunately it isn’t the last. So, I am loosing my hair. I am not talking about the shedding one does everyday that is common and natual. NO I am talking about CHUNKS. Chunks of my hair, and it makes me vomit thinking about it.
It is normal to loose some hair after a baby. Normal and a lot of women go through it. But I wasn’t loosing my hair until, until I had that allergic reaction. So, I got a shot of steroids and then was put on prednisone. It was rough, and my stress is insanely high.
I know I do not need to justify my hair. But I felt like I needed to get this out there, because it worries the crap out of me. And since I now have been trying to go all toxic free in my home as much as possible. I am going to be changing my hair care to Youngliving and I have been researching hair treatments that are essential oil based. And I will tell you that since using rosemary, lavender, and cedarwood oils with almond oil in my hair, not only do I have less frizz, but I feel like my hair is falling out less.
Who knows, but if in another week I am experiencing that along with my diastasis recti I will be going back to the dr. This time to fix me, self care is important.
