The topic: Ponderance
Okay, so most of you who have been reading this journal since I started it back in 1997, know how very much I hated those so called "monthlies". (So called because they were here every 21-25 days, not a month by anyone's standards.) I celebrated when Aunt Flo quit stopping by (last visit, March 2003). Earlier this year, I finally got rid of all of the products.
Now, I know with menopause come changes. My beautiful silvery hair (yay! no more streaking!), less body hair, slower metabolism (boo!), just to name a few.
But one change has me curious and I've never heard this addressed before. I've asked, but no one could answer. Maybe someone reading this will know.
All of my life, I've had straight hair. Unless I've set it or have a perm, it's straight. Well, there's been a new development.
Curly hair. Where is it coming from? Can I expect that all of my new hair is going to be curly? I just think this is really strange. So, if I'm finally getting something I've wanted all of my life, does this mean maybe my metabolism will change, too? Wouldn't that be wonderful?
By the way, the shirt I'm wearing in this picture is the Annie tee from my store, lisaviolet designs.

I don't know about the curly hair, I do know mine started to fall out! Due to the lack of hormones, dontcha know. I started using Nioxin and taking soy estrogen and got some back (at least I no longer have a big bald spot in front)

Seriously? You lost hair?
Well, I'm glad you got some of it back.

I have heard that the change causes hair changes. My mom lost hair after menopause from lack of estrogen. My friends kids, all three, all got curlier and/or thicker hair at puberty. The boys got both curlier and thicker, and the girl got thicker hair. Interesting, I hadn't thought about what happened later in life, which for me is with me right now.

My hair changed from board straight to wavy after being pregnant, so it wouldn't surprise me that with your hormone changes that it's happening to you.

When i started on the pill my hair went from stick straight to curly and frizzy almost overnite. I have since cut all my hair off...so its pretty straight right now!!!
