Hope you guys are all having a wonderful Valentine's Day. I am doing alright with mine.
So, I have always had what others called pretty beautiful long hair, like the kind that goes mid-back... and since taking Entocort, my hair has started to thin out a little bit and it's very noticable but not so much to others from what I have noticed. It looks more like I layered it...but the other day it bothered me that the guard in my condo (I live in a bigger city) had made mention to, oh your hair is still long. I guess she had seen me and another tenant speaking and the girl had said you look good with long hair or something to that effect to me. And, that made her think that maybe I had extensions. But, then she said it was only because the other girl had made mention to it...but then she also said that the back looked a little shorter so that maybe they were just really good. But, I have seen that style in layered hair...and when I asked her about it again, she assured me that it doesn't look like extensions but it just bothered me so badly because my hair is something that I really feel a lot of pride about. I mean, women, you know what it's like. And, even though, the thinning really isn't very bad, I feel like I just started getting comfortable with it and the one insecurity I have about it is the back, where I tease the crown and it looks a little shorter back there but completely blends and even the security guard had reiterated that it didn't look like extensions at all...it just really got to me. It made me sad because I couldn't really let go of that thought...and I shouldn't care. People used to always ask me if I had extensions back before my hair even slightly thinned even a little bit. And, it really looks fine...actually has more body to it...and no one has really even noticed it much...not even my hair dresser.
Do you guys see layered hair and think that oh, that girl has hair extensions? I don't know why this bugs me so much...I know it might sound really silly. But, part of why I care about it is because it's my normal self and I like to try to stay as normal as I can, you know.
