When I started to really do some research about women’s hair loss back in 2012, I found that there wasn’t a whole lot of information out there. There were some articles about the “newest medical breakthroughs” promising a new head of hair for (mostly) men, but next to no information out there for women.
It quickly became apparent that there was a TON of us out there experiencing hair loss, but so few wanted to actually talk about it.
I got the glimmer of an idea to start this blog, mainly because I wanted to connect with anyone who could understand. Women who could really relate to what I was going through. Women who care.
Women just like me.
I took a few pics of my head (eek!), took a bigger leap of faith, and dived right in. Corner of Hope & Mane was born, as was my relationship with many of you.
I wanted to put my story out there in hopes that those of you really struggling with hair loss might see me and understand that there IS life through this. I didn’t 100% know that I’d be in a happy place eventually, but starting this blog was a commitment to myself that I would get to a good place hair-wise.
I wanted to come out on the other side.
Really, I’ve done so largely because of you, dear reader. Your emails and blog comments have given me the strength to get to where I am today – you’ve all been so encouraging.
The stories you send me by email have truly been inspiring. I love hearing about how you took a chance and started wearing hair–and how much it has changed your lives (as it has mine!).
So, during this week of giving thanks (at least, for my American friends), thank YOU. Thanks for being there for me. Thanks for connecting.
Heck, thanks for giving me something to do when I’m bored (a new blog post, why not?).
Enjoy your families during the upcoming holiday and I’ll catch you all next week.
