This is a very personal post for me. I never do personal posts, I just put our work out there for people to see and decide if we are the ones people want to do Boudoir shoot with us.
Forgive me for NOT posting photos of my 80% hair loss because it is too painful.
I lost my beautiful hair in October 2022.
One day I woke up and my thick hair was in kind of a birds nest. I had to brush my hair and as I did it eventually 80% of my hair was on the table.
I was devastated to say the least. I did not know what I was supposed to do or why this happened.
I digested for weeks what was happening. I had really beautiful hair my entire life and never a bad hair day. I never really thought about my hair it just was.
I got so many compliments on my hair all the time and totally took it for granted. After this happened I told friends. And to my surprise the feedback was shocking. How many of the people I spoke with had a similar story. It is like until it happens to you, you never think about it!!
It has been 9 months and I decided to write this very personal post because I wanted people out there to know that your hair will grown back. I lost it maybe from stress (I lost my Father in January) after this happened but I was taking care of him after he fell and he was 101. The truth is I have no idea why I lost my hair. It does not seem to matter now. This story is about hope. Losing your hair as a woman is not good BUT there is hope. I threw everything at my hair and now 9 months later it is growing a lot….It is not the same yet but it might be one day again. At this point I can live with it and I have not been stressing over my hair for months. I can now be very sympathetic to those that suffer from this. I do have a couple of tricks so for those that want to know I would be happy to share them just write me and I will..or leave a comment on your experience and happy ending hopefully!!!
Below is a photo of me a few years ago with my hair just to have an image….My hair does not look anywhere near what it did in this photo BUT it is growing back!!!I have not dyed it for many months but I like my grey hair now. I have accepted this situation and now look at it very differently. I cannot say it is a blessing but it was not the end of the world. We heel and live through these hard times. Losing my Dad who I adored was way harder than losing my hair. He was the most amazing father. I was blessed to have him and give him the last chapter of his life. He had a great time going to my photo shoots and hugging all my clients!!! After the shoots…. After all a 100 year old guy still loves a beautiful woman.
