Hands Up Who Needs Thicker Hair Post Partum?!

On your face? Noooo... Enough of that has been sprouting on the smig since teendom. In fact, I've always been reluctant to try hair supplements for that very reason... However, since a bald spot has been cultivated across the crown since the birth of the firstborn, I've obviously reconsidered. There you are, four months into… Continue reading Hands Up Who Needs Thicker Hair Post Partum?!
