I’ve finally gotten around to getting up my pic from when I had my hair done a few weeks ago, in March. You all probably remember how I was freaking out since I *hate* going to get my hair done. However, it is a good time to gauge any changes (and hopefully improvements) to my hair loss.
Just as a reminder, here is what I looked like after my last appointment, in November 2012:
It’s kind of crazy that I wait so long in between appointments, huh? But, I swear my hair doesn’t look too bad since my highlights are so fine. I would probably stretch it out even more, but I like how the hair dye “plumps” up some of the finer hairs on top. This is especially important when you are on Spiro (or have been recently, like me), since some of those early hairs tend to come back finer and almost-colorless.
You’ll have to excuse the scalp irritation that you see here. Sometimes I have a bit of a reaction to the dye, and sometimes I don’t. This time, I really felt my stylist’s nails on my head — after all, I don’t have much of a buffer between them and my scalp!
I think I see a bit of improvement here, what do you think? I tend to get my hair done about every 4 months. So, now you’ve seen March and last November. The time I got my hair done before that was in July — and that time, I didn’t need to wear my hair loss concealer; in fact, I was heading to a wedding a few days after I got my hair done and my beloved Bumble and Bumble Hair Powder was over the 2 oz. limit for carry-on luggage, so I left it at home. In the past, getting my hair dyed meant that since the dye coated the hair, making it appear fuller, a few weeks would go by before I’d need all my tools. This time, not so much. I think that’s always going to be my goal — to get my hair done and look “normal”, at least for a short while!
