A hair update - February 2017

You guys, my hair is growing back healthy and strong and I am so stoked to share what has been happening since the last update in 2016. 9 months is usually the sweet spot where my hair is completely back to normal (minus the length) after every pregnancy. We are only 7 months in and I am already loving the result so I am sure by 9 months I will be even happier with the progress.

Right before Christmas, I gave in and got a major cut. My ends were looking so sad and thin it was not even worth holding on to them. My edges also kept falling and I was so close to buying a wig and calling it a day. Luckily the shedding finally stopped and the hair started growing. I am so happy that after all my major hair losses, my hair always turns around and grows back.

I was really feeling myself after this relaxer. Can you blame me, I finally have edges again :)
Remember what the back looked like the last time I did an update.
This is where we are now 4 months later. I am loving my new thick ends. Though it's short, it is full and I love it
I went from losing this much hair during a wash day
to losing only this much
During the thick of the shedding phase, I didn't want to do much to my hair but just let it be. Once my hair stopped falling, I started doing my weekly deep conditioning again.
The most annoying part of my hair loss is always losing all my edges. For some reason I always go bald there first. This time was not different than any of my other hair loss post pregnancy

My edges on the left side went from looking like this in October
 to this in December
 and this is February (before the relaxer)
 After the relaxer. I am so loving my full edges and baby girl's sweet face. Do you see the short hair sticking out at the top of my head.
My edges on the right side went from looking like this in October
 to this in December
 and this in February (before the relaxer). Are you loving my baby girl's model face and all her rolls
 After the relaxer
I find that though I am prepared for the hair loss, it's extremely nerve wrecking while it's happening. I am so grateful that my hair  still grows back after all that. I am back on my healthy hair journey and I look forward to growing my hair longer and stronger than it's ever been. My babies are worth all the stress that multiple pregnancies have put on my body and I would do it all over again in a heartbeat.
