My barnet and I have been through the mill together these last few years, long before Beauty Pie haircare arrived on the scene. It started falling out two and a half years previously – most probably because of an incredibly stressful time – and the experience of losing so much of my hair was, quite frankly, harrowing.
Despite knowing it could be part and parcel of child-bearing, hair loss was just never on my radar. I really wasn’t prepared for mine to start falling out in massive chunks, that’s for sure.
The decision to get tape-in hair extensions was not one I came to quickly. Despite losing half my hair in the last year I still wanted to be taken seriously – as a business person, as a mum, as a human – and for some weird reason I thought sticking someone else’s hair on my head would make that impossible.
