POSTPARTUM HAIR JOURNEY
"Haaair we go!" - Princess Poppy
From color, extensions, and even shaving my head... my hair has always been able to bounce back! Add in two pregnancies and some hormones it becomes a different story!
After giving birth to Tessla in 2016, I noticed a substantial amount of regrowth around my hair line and hair part. For awhile there it looked like a toddler had taken scissors to parts of my hair... but with a positive mind set, I thought, "At least I am growing hair, and not losing it!"
With no intentions of becoming pregnant anytime soon. I jumped on the band wagon I dyed my hair PURPLE! It was fun for a week and then I slowly regretted my decision, due to the fact that it completely destroyed my hair!
Quickly realizing I was expecting, I knew I had to dye my hair back to brown! End result..... dirty green hair!
Fernando to the Rescue!!!!!! Friends if you are in the Carlsbad area you need to visit him! (TIP #1)
Feeling on cloud nine with my amazing color transformation! I still had a long healing process ahead of me!
