There’s postpartum hair loss … and there’s Ashley Graham’s postpartum hair loss
If you’ve ever given birth, you know that the hormonal issues you experience during pregnancy are next to nothing compared to what happens to your whole body and your sense of self after the baby is released. Postpartum hair loss is a great equalizer for those who have recently given birth in that no one is immune – not even the gorgeous and famous models.
In her latest Instagram post, Ashley Graham shared a photo of her own hair loss and subsequent regrowth. Son Isaac may be over a year old now, but postpartum hair issues persist good in the life of your child’s toddler. How lucky we are!
“I might not be a Bond girl, but I can be a Bond villain (postpartum baby hair goes through !!!)” Graham captioned the photo, which will likely live in our heads rent free for the rest of our lives. In the following photo she presents Anatole Taubman’s Comfort Quantam character, Elvis, who rocks a similar style of “baby bangs”. MDR.
If your first thought when looking at this photo is, “Which hairdresser dirty it?” you’re not alone. But, alas, it’s only these post-baby hormones that pass. Because even if you to lose a lot of hair during the first months of your child’s life, you will absolutely be faced with the effects of regrowth and irregularities during the first years. BABIES ARE A BLESSING!
In a post celebrating his son’s first birthday in January, Graham wrote via Instagram that Isaac had ‘changed [her] life and heart in a way “she couldn’t imagine.
“I can’t believe I’m writing this already, because it’s like yesterday that we met. But at the same time, I also don’t remember what life was like without you, ”wrote the author of A New Model in January. “Watching you grow and learn has been the greatest gift. … A year later and I can’t wait to see where the rest takes us.
Since becoming a mom, Graham has kept him real 100% of the time. Last fall, she opened up about the mothers-shamers and trolls that appear in her social media posts.
“Mommy’s shamers are just mean daughters who grew up to be mothers,” Graham said during the candid discussion which also included Willow Smith, Adrienne Banfield-Jones and Jessica Alba. “It never feels good to have someone tell you that you aren’t doing a good enough job, that you are doing something wrong.”
Graham regularly shared photos of herself while breastfeeding her son, and as a result, regularly received hatred about her choice to “expose” her breasts for the sole purpose of making the breasts exist.
“It’s interesting because my whole career has been based on body shame because I’m a curvy girl who walked into a skinny world and said that my body, and other bodies like mine, need to be standardized, ”she said. “I knew it [mom-shaming] was coming and I was ready to fight it, but it never feels good for someone to tell you that you aren’t doing a good enough job, that you are doing something wrong.
Now if anyone dares to shame Ashley Graham for her postpartum Lloyd Christmas hair, I will personally fight it in the comments section with my own broken locks of hair 18 months after the birth of my last child while they tremble with rage over my lead.
