Ok, y'all know Nai called me out lol. I got back a few days ago and everything is up in the air - as you can imagine! Having been in Barbados for almost 4 months, I am in the process of unpacking luggage for a family of five and (re)setting the house in order. It's amazing what can accumulate when noone is in!
The last few weeks of my holiday were hectic as well - so many people to see, beaches to visit and so so little time! Bajan Baby has returned a nice golden colour instead of pale and frail (her aunt has been calling her 'nugget' lol). The Young Prince is a right dynamo, leaping off the backs of chairs, riding his trike and getting into and upto just about everything! The Big One has officially landed in teenhood - angst and all - HRH and I are holding on for dear life, what a ride!
On the subject of blogging - well, I have so much to say!
I have photos from carnival events (no costumes sorry) as I was so enchanted by all the natural and dreaded heads I came across.
I did tons of research into locks, maintenance, haircare and products (natural and ready made etc). Look out for my posts on those.
I did TONS and TONS of research on my 'condition'. I have lost MORE hair and am still not sure it is done shedding yet (which would allow me to focus on healing, repair and regrowth) but my sister-in-law (shout out to B repping Trinidad) has styled my hair in such a way that most (if not all) of the patches are concealed... so that's pretty much how I am wearing my hair at the moment.
I saw specialist after specialist, and had a whole gamut of tests done. I'll post about those at some point too.
Nubian1 - I haven't responded to your email yet but I did get it and will do so shortly. Thank you for being a source of encouragement and optimism. You too Anthia! (and Mrs Mac and Yahvinah and V and Trina) I guess post partum shedding and hairloss is more common than we realise. (Sorry if I missed your name above, am rushing at the mo)
Oh and my Hair Salon is back in business. (More on that some other time too). If you're interested in taking a peek or showing your support click here.
