Hair A Women's Crowning Glory | My Hair History And Why I Love My Short Hair | Hair Transplants With Harley Street Hair Clinic.

Thursday, 19 July 2018

Hair, keep it long, cut it short, shave it off, cut it into a bob, tie it up, leave it loose, curl it, straighten it, braid it, plait it, wave it. Whatever you do with it, for us girls it's usually our crowning glory, the one part of us we are usually more protective over than any other. Not wanting to get it cut for fear that the hairdresser will chop off more than the required 1/4 inch! 

The only time I've had longish hair was when I was younger, but for as long as I can remember I have always had short hair, preferring to wash and go than to spend hours in front of the mirror trying to tease my tresses into some sort of style that looked good! I have coloured my hair in the past including going ice blonde! I was never afraid of dyeing it various colours, cutting it short or letting an apprentice loose with the scissors! 

Nowadays I prefer a really short, close cropped style, keeping my colour natural. When I was blonde, I had to go to the hairdressers almost weekly to have conditioning treatments as I felt my hair was lacking moisture and was prone to breakages. I was losing hair in the shower on an almost daily basis which really worried me as I'd never experienced that before. 

Thankfully my hair repaired itself as soon as I went brunette which just proved to me that being so blonde really wasn't good for it! I've never been one for hair extensions or needing to look into hair transplant costs to fill in a bald spot. Hair loss can be painful, not only physically but emotionally too, it can take a big toll on your state of mind and leading to depression and bad mental health. It may seem trivial to some but I for one can understand just how much of an emotional toll it can take, not only on the person affected, but also for their family too. 

When someone close to you starts losing their hair as a side effect to medication, you look to do anything and everything possible to make them feel better about it and support them in whatever avenue they choose to pursue whether that be something as serious as a hair transplant or a less permanent option such as wigs. It's really important to remind them how beautiful they are naturally without anything but also to have a bit of a laugh with them when choosing wigs! 

It is a very personal choice as to whether or not you decide to have a hair transplant or extensions (if you have enough hair for this to be a possibility). Depending on the reason why you are considering this, you can be assured that you will be looked after with care and sympathy by those who are in charge of your care. Looking fabulous shouldn't be stressful so take your time to choose the right people to assist you with this. 

Nowadays there is so much information available to you online if this is something you're looking into. You shouldn't feel alone when you're most vulnerable, look into what it is you've decided to do; having friends around you at times like this is most important. They will know exactly what you need to keep you smiling as well as providing a good sounding board off of which to bounce any ideas. 

Whatever you decide to do, it should above all be fun! 

Love, Sarah
