Over the years I have had the same hairstyle and it has become my lazy, no effort go to.
Seriously, it’s just pulled back in a ponytail. Boring as you like but I have a real problem with hair on my neck and face.
I have had it permed (twice) and cut in an angled bob…. but, I always end up with the same bloody thing.
Sometimes with a quiff, for the days I can actually bothered to make an effort but most times just pulled back.
Well.. a couple of months ago, I decided it was time for a change and cut my hair. I actually wanted it a bit shorter than it turned out but I’m glad the hairdresser went with the slightly longer cut, because to be fair I would look like a shit hot mess most days.
This is the before and after shot.
Now let’s be honest.. my hair is fine, flat and limp beforehand. Although my hair is fine there is loads of hair.
After having my son, who is now 5 years old.. my hair is breaking and falling out at a rapid rate so I have been trying to do things differently.
Which has meant;
- Using less products
- Less heat
- Dead ends cut off
- Not pulling it back so tightly and wearing down more
I also suffer with really itchy and flaky scalp and tried numerous shampoo’s, oils and treatments… none of which has had a long lasting effect. Washing less, washing more, expensive products and medicated shampoo’s… all fails. Then I tried coconut oil, not great for fine hair as it leaves my hair seriously greasy, great for my scalp though as it helps left off all of the dry skin BUT.. my hair falls out where the dry skin is which is pretty much all around my hairline. I am led to believe that stress and diet has alot to answer for!
Back to the haircut… 2 months on I am still trying to get to grips with styling my shorter hair and the best I have got was this. …
I really like this cut… but my god.. styling it is a chore. I know I will get quicker with practice,but after so many years of the go to pulling it back into a ponytail and the lack of effort… this could take me an hour sometimes more. Pffft.
So ladies… any tips for hair loss and scalp problems are very much welcomed.
I will soon be trying out some more natural remedies that I have found on pintrest and youtube and possibly review if they actually make a difference or not if anyone is interested.
