Top 5 Reasons I'm Losing My Hair

Buy this weave, get this hairbrush FREE!
I'm a woman in my 30's, I'm healthy and I take care of myself, yet I noticed that the shower drain keeps getting stopped-up with my hair!  And I don't mean the normal amount, I mean enough to glue together into a small cat (okay, maybe that's an exaggeration, but it's a lot of hair!).  I've thought about reasons why this may be happening, and here's the best I could come up with.  And sorry, fellas, I'm taken.

5. I have kids- If my two kids aren't literally pulling out my hair, they are making me figuratively pull it out myself.

4. I JUST had a kid - Preggos take note: no one tells you that the hair your body stopped shedding during your pregnancy will all fall out in disturbing quantities after you've given birth to one of the angels (from #5 above).

3. I'm getting old - I've recently discovered some gray hairs which is completely unacceptable.  Therefore, I pull them out myself.

I heard "hair bands" but was expecting something like Poison or Def Leppard  
2. Hair Thingies - Ladies, you know what I mean!  I am incapable of taking out a ponytail without ripping out some hair along with the elastic.

1. I'm blond - Well, I used to be blond but my hair has gotten darker over the years and is now more of a light brown.  Occasionally I see a completely black hair show up and I simply can't have that when I'm still deluding myself about being a blond.  So... I pluck it out.  Which, if you think about it, is really pretty blond of me!

So really, I'm pretty sure it's the "just had a baby" thing, but who knows...  What do you think?  Share your thoughts below and while you're here, like us on Facebook and share us with your friends (balding or hairy)!


  1. Definitely the baby thing :)

  2. Yep, that's what I said... :)

  3. But I didn't have a baby...

  4. How about genetic reasons, there is a great probability that it would be genes. i don't know, i experience hair loss because my parents had. 

  5. Could be...I'll have to look into that!
