What To Do With All That Hair?!

First of all, I want to thank all of my wonderful SITStah's for making yesterday such a wonderful, fun and special day! I am so thankful to be a part of such a wonderful community dedicated to encouraging, uplifting  and supporting each other in the blogger world.

Alright, now that the mushy stuff is over . . .
I have a very interesting subject for today.

It's inevitable.
If you've had WLS, you're probably GOING to experience hair loss.
Mine has begun.
I wash my hair and come back with handfuls.
I brush my hair and my empty brush becomes full.
I continually find hair on my shoulders, back, chair, pillow . . .
It's a good thing I had more than enough to spare!

While it doesn't really BOTHER me so much, I do think it's been expedited a bit because of my almost-vegetarianism as of late. But I'm not overly worried. As I said, I have MORE than enough hair to go around. In fact, I've come up with some ideas of what to actually DO with some of this hair that has decided to make a mass prison break from my scalp!

What To Do With Lost Hair . . .

Make a doll wig.
Spin into yarn and make a hat.
Stuff a pillow.
Make a fake mustache and beard for Halloween.
Weave it into jewelry.
Glue it to your feet and dress up like a Halfling (Hobbit).
Spread it around your garden to deter pests.
Give it to Stewie Griffin so he can have "peuuuuubes . . ."

(That last one was courtesy my apparently twelve year old husband . . .)

I am a day late, but happy SITS day to you! I hope you had a fantastic day yesterday enjoying all the extra comment love!

Just curious to know why you lose your hair after having WLS?

Hi! We lose hair because of the lack of calories and protein our bodies get after surgery. It usually happenes 3-4 months after surgery then will go back to normal in a few more months.
