Assalamu alaikum/greetings, Perhaps my hair isn’t necessarily falling out so much, but it’s shedding a whole lot more than usual. And even though I’ve read an article which says that this sorta thing is normal postpartum, it’s still annoying and disconcerting. And I just plain don’t like it. And from what I can tell, there’s not too much I can do about it either except to wait for things in my body to get back to normal, whatever “normal” is now. Because even though I’ve lost all of my baby weight, there are just things about me that will not ever be the same again post baby.
But it’s not cool to go around the house finding your hair all over the floor, or in the fridge, or all over your bath towel after you’ve finished drying off. I mean, if I had the gutts, I’d just shave my head and start fresh. But I heard somewhere that it’s haram for women to cut their hair (didn’t know this actually until recently), so who knows. I’ll probably just have to tough things out until things in my body stabilize a bit.
