For as long as i can remember now I have had black hair, I’m talking jet black, darkest shade you can find on the shelves – BLACK! It suits me, everyone has said how I really suit my hair colouring so it may surprise you to know its not always been the case!
I was born blonde! All through my teens and early 20s I was bleach blonde, sometimes even permed too….so masses of yellow curls!
(Thats me on the right with the HUGE fringe!) lol
The rational behind my change of colour was that I was sick of people asking if the kids were mine!
Im being serious!
The amount of times I was asked if I was the child minder or ‘OOH are these yours?’ – REALLY PEOPLE!
Stuart is half South African so has a hint of colour, meaning the children get tans super easy (damn you genetics!) and they all have thick dark hair (except Amelia who is ginger – go figure!) Even as babies their hair was amazing and I think that was the catalist for all the questions. In the end I got sick of having to explain so dyed my hair and never looked back. People are so fickle, not once did I ever have the conversation of how they really were my children again!
Underneath all of the colour I am probably grey but I never let is get through enough to tell, my roots are quite light though so the colour needs to be done regularly which is killing my hair! Every child I have had has left my hair a little thinner and although still super thick I can really tell a difference to how it use to be. Letting it grow has been an issue too as most of the time it is fastened back in a mum bun, I dont have time to style it every day and really envy those women who have immaculate hair all the time, I’m lucky if i get a brush through it on a daily basis!
Fastening it back through has meant lots of snapping and I still have a lot of the ‘fluff’ around the front from where it has fallen out or snapped. Seriously Im thining of looking up much hair transplant cost to fill in the front as I really dont think I can pull off the receeding hairline look!
Have you ever drastically changed your hair or had issues post children with hair loss?
Are you a mum-bun mum? (Don’t get me started on how many bobbles we get through – seriously where do they all go?)
