Of course hair loss isn’t sexy, but I thought that might catch your eye. I went to the gym today and did 90 minutes of Yoga. Fabulous, absolutely fabulous. My yin and yang were doing what they were supposed to do; I was breathing properly without feeling faint; all marvellous. When I got back home we still had power. Unusual for this time of year and we have no generator. I turned on the hot water switch and decided to splash out (pardon the pun) on a full body shower and hair wash.
I know that makes me sound rather unclean. I am not, I promise but when there is no power, there is no water, as the power is needed for the water pump. I hear connections going off in people’s heads and them thinking ahhh….I see. No problem to have a cold wash using the water from the bucket in the bathroom kept specially for those occasions. However, I have to confess, despite my hardiness for washing with a jug and living without hot water; this doesn’t extend to washing my hair in cold water. In my view, people wash their hair far too much. Once or twice a week is plenty even for sweaty children and models.
I am so lucky, I also have another reason. I know, I know, you have been waiting for that Menopause Moment – an MM.
Yes, hair loss is another of those darling little symptoms. So you can understand now, my own very good reason, NOT to be rushing for the shampoo each day.
Mind you, I have never checked with the doctor. Does all the hair WAIT until you wash it; and then come out in a larger clump in the weekly wash, just to spite you?
Oh well as I am shallow, I will leave that train of thought well alone.
My shower today with hot water was lovely, and so is my hair.
