The Return of Tufty

Can someone fix my hair?

I have not yet escaped the phenomenon of postpartum hair changes. A few months after Q-ster was born, a passel of new hair emerged on the left side of my hairline, so stubborn and determined to stay vertical that it earned it's own name. Tufty. Eventually, Tufty grew out, and joined the rest of my hair.

Well, it's that time again. Buster is nine months old and Tufty is back, uncooperative as ever.

Anyone have hints? I'm not a hair products girl, but I borrowed some gel from SwingDaddy, and it does no good. I might just have to wait until Tufty is long enough to get with a barrette.

Baby notes: The micro dude has been making "ba-ba-ba-ba" and "da-da-da-da" noises for some time. New ones - "di-di-di-di" (which caused Q-ster to say, "I'm the ge-ge!" (big brother in Chinese, since di-di is little brother)), and this week, the addition of "ma-ma-ma!" We also got a crisp "uh-oh!" this evening.

I have no suggestions, but I could use some of my own. My own hair is still falling out all over the place. I join you in hoping someone can offer a good idea.

Oh I dealt with that. I always lost a TON of hair postpartum with the hormone flux and then some of it grew back (TG).

My hairdresser did some good cutting to help deal with it and that seemed to help a lot.

GL, but also keep an eye out. Tons of shedding hair might mean you should ask your MD to check thyroid levels just in case---they can get wonky thanks to PG.

Once the "uh ohs" start, you know you're in trouble. ;-)

Well, you could go product, with some kind of heavy sculpting goo or hair stick, and maybe a shot of heavy hold hairspray afterwards to keep it down, but it will be sticky and stiff, for sure. So if it will go into one, I'd go with a mini bobby pin for now. You can even get cute little embellished ones, so it looks like it's on purpose!

A hair band? I'm not sure if that will help or not. I never had Tuftys, but I did lose enough hair to make wigs for 4 new people.

(Love the baby "uh-ohs." So cute!)
