My Hair Loss and Extensions | Simply Marlena

Hi beautiful Makeup Geeks!  (please remind yourself of this EVERY morning when you get up.  I know it’s cheesy, but you have to know that each of us has something beautiful to offer)

Anyways, this is a very difficult subject to talk about and has been plaguing me for almost 3 years now.  Losing hair is the most difficult thing to happen to my self esteem as I feel like I’ve lost of bit of my “womanhood”.  It’s been a bit depressing watching my hair thin so much and not being able to change anything about it.  I’ve seen 8 doctors now, done multiple rounds of bloodwork, seen hair specialists, dermatologists, etc…  No one has any answers.  I eat healthy with lots of protein and veggies, take my vitamins, and exercise yet this is still happening :(

My guess is this is hormone related, so I see a specialist next month to hopefully find something out.  I’m not stopping until I find out what I know in my heart to be wrong.  I’m not alone in this journey, so I’m sharing this video to help those of you going through the same thing.  We’re not alone, and our hair doesn’t define our beauty.  Wearing hair extensions has helped my self esteem a bit- I wear the tape in kind as they are very gentle on my hair.  I’ve used them for over a year now and haven’t noticed any extra hair loss because of them.  (most of my hair loss is on the top of my head. My extensions are on the bottom of my head)

Here are the products I’m currently using as well as extension that I really like :-)
