If you have ever been pregnant, you’d know that you get the bonus of a head of extra luscious hair during those 9 months of pregnancy.

If you have ever given birth, you’d know that you start losing some of that hair about 3-4 months postpartum…

If you have a 6-7 month old baby, you’d know that, luckily, your hair starts growing out again! Woot! But that is where the problem started for me…

For those of you who know me personally, you will know that I can only stand having my hair down for at a maximum of approximately 30 minutes, and then my hair is in a bun.
To get a better idea of how that is in real life, I usually put my hair up and down and up and down at least 2-3 times every meal.

But every time I did that, those new outgrowths would stick out! Making my messy buns looks a kind of “messy” I couldn’t stand!

That’s when I knew bangs would be the answer.

So of course, I went running to my friend slash hairstylist, Steve the Hair Doctor, for help as soon as I had the time. For such big changes in hairstyle, I would only leave it to professionals of the field that I trust!

I think my remaining balayage helped with the overall outcome. It gave the fringe subtle layers and underlights, making it less “solid”, giving it a more layered feeling even though it has volume, if you know what I mean.

I am only planning on keeping the bangs until the “baby hair” situation settles itself down a bit more; until I can put my hair in a messy bun again without them making it a kind of messy that I can’t tolerate.

What do you guys think?!

And does your postpartum baby hair growth annoy you as much as it annoys me?
I want to hear from you!
