I noticed this weekend my hair is getting wavy. Like really wavy. My hair has always been straight! My mom said, and I quote, "having kids will do all kinds of crazy things to you, heck I'm still not the same, I used to be nice!"

So I'm curious, anyone ever heard of post partum hair changes? I love wavy hair, except it sucks because it doesn't have much wave in the front at all. The back and sides are nice and wavy. I even tried perming my hair a long time ago to get a wave, but my hair laughed in the face of the hair stylist... It didn't take, not even a little. My hair has never been one to curl, so this is really odd to me.

Now if I could just get the front to be wavy, life would be grand!

That is weird....I've never heard of that. But anything is possible. Maybe there is something new in your diet.

I have a friend who has the opposite. She had really curly hair but now it's getting straighter as she gets older.

I've heard of that happening. Maybe the rest will go wavy after the second kid?

Resi I hope so! I don't mind if it is wavy or straight, I just don't want both at the same time!

Yup, happened to me! I think some people are more sensitive to the hormone changes.

Growing up my hair was stick straight, wouldn't hold a curl no matter what I did to it. Then I hit puberty and it got curly. Then when I got pregnant the first time a lot of the curl left and was just more wavy. Then I got pregnant with Liam and it got curly again. Then with Loch and Lila it got a little more curly each time.

Weird huh?

Hmmmm so I have hope that the next kid or two will either make it all straight or all wavy instead of having this half and half thing I have going on now!

That is weird that it went back and forth like that Jenn. You would think it would go one way or the other.

I lost my curl while pregnant with Gemma. I just had waves the whole pregnancy. After her it became dry and frizzy curls, very ugly. With Ash it only got worse. Now I lose more hair than any person I know all the time.

Yeah, it can happen. My sister used to have straight hair and now has wavy/curly-ish hair after giving birth. Her "baby" is now 18 but her hair never went back to the way it was before having her son.

Sara, have you ever tried leaving regular conditioner (like the rinse out kind) in your hair? I did a lot of research on how to handle curly hair without letting it get frizzy so I could tame charlotte's curls. There's all kinds of stuff you can do to tame it that I was totally clueless about! But I'm still learning. Let me know if you want more info/links.
