Will You Still Love Me?

Will you still love me if all my hair falls out? I hope so because I am well on my way to being hair-free.

I've always had very thick hair and I've usually let it grow long but it seems those days are coming to an end, at least temporarily.

Not only is it annoying to be dealing with thinning hair, but it's messy. Seems like it's everywhere. The back of my shirt. The car seat. My pillow. My office chair. I've even stopped brushing unless it's absolutely necessary. Unkept or slightly askew hair on my head is better than a pile of it in my hairbrush.

Just call me vain. Of all the complications of being Diabetic and all the not-so-pleasant side effects of the drugs I've endured, this is the one that bugs me most. I don't want to loose my hair.

I wish I had words of comfort for you about your hair. Being the child of 2 hairdressers I can empathize.
BTW, I love your blog. Cute design, wonderful heartfelt words.

Sarah,
I never ever brush my hair, makes it more frizzy. I do run my figers through it when it is wet. I also loose a ton of hair each day, gobs of it.

Sarah, I'm a member of TNScrapbooking and have bookmarked your blog to read occasionally. Anyway, just read your entry "will you still love me" and thought I would pass a little advice given me by my hairdresser about 4 years ago and it's advice that has worked.
I have always had very thick hair. I noticed that it had begun to thin about 10 years ago. My hairdresser noticed it too. She gave me this advice -
She had had a client who was going to the dermotologist for shots of Biotin (a B vitamin) and folic acid that were $150 a pop to make her hair thicker. She got these shots twice a month! This client began looking for information and found that if she takes a multiple vitamin daily, that one pill has the amount of folic acid that we need but it does not have anywhere near the amount of Biotin that we need. She stopped the shots and started adding an extra tablet of biotin to her daily vitamin dose. It WORKS! So I started doing this about 4 years ago. Within 3 months, I had tons of new growth and have been taking the extra biotin ever since and my hair is back to the thickness that I had in my 20's and 30's. I just turned 50 on Wednesday and I am so happy to not be dealing with losing my hair anymore. I finally got my husband talked into this about 4 months ago and even I couldn't believe that his little bald spot on the crown of his head really and truly has new growth! So you might want to give it a try and let me know how it goes. It's so simple.
