Flow It, Show It, Long as God Can Grow It HAIR

Give me a head with hair,
Long beautiful hair.

Anyone remember this song from the 60's?

I have always had some crazy amount of hair on my head, perhaps 2-3 times a normal amount for a person. My entire family of siblings also has a ton of hair and my husband too, therefore my children have twice as much as a normal human being.

A few times during my life I have lost somebodies full head of hair because of hormonal imbalance such as pregnancy and child birth. Yes, 6 months or so after I gave birth I started loosing a lot of hair.

Now I am in a down time probably because of a weight loss in my life. I have lost about 35 pounds in the past 5 months and now I am losing my hair.

I've lost hair in the shower, in my brush, all over the house and especially noticed in the vacuum cleaner. So here is a nasty picture of what I pulled out of my vacuum roller the other day. Don't look if you are going to be grossed out.
 This picture was taken when I had most of the hair removed and I thought, "Oh, my. I should really take a picture of this nastiness." Originally the entire length of the roller was completely covered.
There is some thread in there with all the hair. I am a seamstress you know, but the hair is out of control.
I still have some on my head though, so I'm not going to start worrying ….. yet.


  1. I used to have the thickest hair ever; people always commented on it.
    Now it is thin as can be, more so than most women's my age.

    I'm not particularly vain, but I do miss it! Glad you still have a ton left...


  2. Yuck - do people really need (want?) to see all this hair? Reminds me of your pile in the shower. And you're still not bald - amazing! :)

  3. Oh man I can totally relate. I can not believe how much hair I have to remove from the shower/bathroom floor after I get ready in the morning, it is incredible. My husband thinks I should keep it and sell it for wigs, which is ridiculous. Especially right now since I'm 5 months post baby I feel like I am shedding like an animal. Totally gross. Our vacuum TOTALLY looks like that and has to be cleaned! Must be in our genes!

  4. Hey, babe. Glad you're losing the weight, bad about the hair. I've got a friend (who never had your amount of hair, btw) who went gluten free when she started going bald. Literally. She's got a totally thick head of hair and is sold on the concept of gluten free.
