(throwback to my last big chop in 2009)
I Big Chopped again! I cut off all my permed ends and I am loving my fro. Those permed ends just weighed my fabulousness all the way down! I am enjoying the shorter length and the volume. It’s so full and the color gives it some dimension (check it on instagram) And none of my thinning is noticeable at all. I don’t know if it’s age or post-baby hormone changes, but my texture feels a little different. Slightly looser but still super coarse.
Did you experience any hair texture changes with age or after babies?
I’m starting to get more concerned with aging. I know I just turned 34 but I keep fastforwarding in my mind to 35 which seems so big and grown up to me. Also seems like I need to start thinking about eye creams and stuff. LOL. (Do you have one you’d recommend?)
I told you about how I’m trying out ROGAINE Foam for my thinning areas. So far so good. No results to share yet, but I’ve only just begun. I’ll be updating you about it in 12 weeks. In my last post I mentioned that 1 in 3 women will experience thinning/hereditary hair loss. Here’s another fun fact: Thinning and hair loss caused by hereditary hair loss can begin as early as one’s 20s and if left untreated it will continue to worsen as you age.
Don’t worry though. You’re ahead of the game if you’re living a healthy lifestyle.
I go to ask Women’s ROGAINE® Brand Ambassador, Jill Crosby a few questions about hair as we get older. Here’s a snippet of what she said:
Top tip for aging hair?
Use a Pro Colorist/Stylist when performing chemical treatments on hair to stave off damaging already delicate hair.
- Get a great cut and use volume to disguise any thinning
- Moisturize like your life depends on it – hair gets drier as we age
- Drink tons of water to hydrate from the inside
- Use hair thickening and/or smoothing serums to counteract thinning and wiriness
- Get a color, this counteracts the loss of color as we age and also temporarily thickens strands for added volume boost
One lucky lady will receive a one-year supply of Women’s ROGAINE® Foam (ARV $150.00) which is clinically proven to regrow hair in 81%* of women with new hairs growing in up to 48%** thicker than before. (only one entry per household please)
