Messy Hair, Don’t Care! Or Do You? Are You Suffering from Hair Loss Too?
Met my sister yet? Katty is our newest NYCTechMommy contributor. Exciting, I know! She’s also a long-time hair loss sufferer and beginning today she’ll be sharing her incredible life-changing journey for more hair here on the blog. You can catch her posts here on Fridays. If you’re a hair loss sufferer yourself I know you’ll relate to her struggle and find inspiration in her story. Hope you’ll follow along! ~ Monica 🙂
I have to admit, every time I see a “messy hair, don’t care” t-shirt I cringe. I get it, it’s cute… but I’d give anything to have messy hair. Shoot, I’d give anything to actually have hair!
I guess after living with hair loss for so long I tend to just ignore how uncomfortable it makes me feel but there are some days when I just can’t put on a happy face. Sometimes I just can’t face the world, even with Toppik, or “powder” as I like to call it, sprinkled on my scalp. It’s not the same! It’s not hair. It’s just an illusion and I often wonder, who am I fooling? Maybe they can tell there’s no hair? Maybe they notice it’s just powder covering my scalp? What I wouldn’t give for messy hair!
Do you suffer from hair loss too?
Postpartum Hair Loss
Just when I was starting to get used to not having to stress much about hair maintenance, I’m right back where I started and I’m so scared that it’ll get even worse. Have you suffered from postpartum hair loss? The struggle is real! Even worse if you already had thinning hair, to begin with.
I’ve heard and read a ton about postpartum hair loss but I just assumed it would not happen to me. I have such little hair, to begin with, that I figured there wasn’t much more I could possibly lose. Well, I was dead wrong!
I’m now 6 months postpartum and my hair loss is getting worse. In the past, I’ve never really seen a ton of hair in the shower drain or on my brush. I lost my hair long ago and now just don’t have any new hair growth. But recently all I have to do is just touch my head and the little hair I do have just falls right out. It’s almost as if it’s not even connected to my scalp. Literally, it just falls out!
While I was pregnant I wasn’t losing any hair. So it makes sense that I’m losing it now. Have you had this happen to you post baby? Devastating, to say the least! Right?
Dealing with Hair Loss
My approach during the last 20 years of my hair loss struggle has been to internalize my pain and move forward with the understanding that this is my life. I will deal with this forever so I might as well get used to it! Right?
Almost 56 million Americans deal with hair loss every day and 40% of those people are women. Are you one of them?
Disclosure: I was supplied with PRP Hair Treatments on a complimentary basis by Dr. Rapaport in order to test them first-hand. All opinions stated are my own.
Thankfully, a new, cutting-edge, non-invasive treatment called PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Therapy has given me new hope for more hair. Dr. Jeffrey Rapaport, a New Jersey Dermatologist and pioneer of this treatment (also featured on Good Morning America) has proven that his technique can in fact effectively treats hair loss. And I’m so excited about the possibilities!
PRP Hair Treatment with Dr. Rapaport
I’ve been given the opportunity of a lifetime and words can’t express just how much I look forward to finally being able to yell out messy hair don’t care! Let me tell you all about this promising new hair lost treatment AND the life-changing journey I’m about to embark on!
I’ve been chosen as a PRP Ambassador and will receive PRP treatments from Dr. Rappaport free of charge. I could not be more excited! Not only for myself but for all other mamas out there, like me, dealing with hair loss and thinning hair. I can’t wait to tell you my story! It’s my hope that it will help others find the solution they’ve been longing for.
Visiting Dr. Rapaport’s Office
At first, I was a little apprehensive, wouldn’t you be?
I knew that if I went through with this I would have to face my hair loss reality. I worried about exposing to the world what I’ve been hiding for so many years — that it was all a ‘powder’ illusion! Scary to just come out with it when I’ve worked so hard to hide my hair loss.
But after my initial consultation and first PRP hair treatment with Dr. Rapaport, I’m all in.
Everyone at Dr. Rapaport’s office was so welcoming and knew exactly what to say to make me feel at ease. Dr. Rapaport himself was amazing! He was so thorough and honest about the process and expected results. He didn’t sugar coat anything and I never felt like he was “selling” me. He genuinely seems to want to help people who suffer from the trauma of hair loss. And if you’re one of the 56 million dealing with hair loss you know exactly how traumatic it can be!
Results Speak for Themselves
If the warm welcome at Dr. Rapaport’s office wasn’t enough, there was also the patient that Dr. Rapaport introduced me to. He was there for his third treatment. Dr. Rapaport showed me his 2 months side my side photos and I was floored.
I would have never guessed that this young, attractive and very well put together man suffered from hair loss. He appeared to have a full head of hair! The results were so drastic that even the patient himself was shocked to find out that the side by side scalp photos we were looking were his own. Amazing results in just 2 treatments! His reaction was priceless and I myself couldn’t believe it.
My Journey – From NO HAIR to MESSY HAIR
In the next few months, I’ll be sharing my journey in pursuit of messy hair. I hope it helps others like me who struggle with this debilitating condition.
Sounds crazy but it’s true! Hair loss has affected so many parts of my life! I’ll explain in more details in my future posts. And I can’t wait to show the world my hair transformation!
Next time I’ll be sharing all the details of my first visit to Dr. Rapaport’s office, including videos taken during the PRP process. You’ll see exactly what this new cutting-edge technique is all about, how it works and exactly how it can help you find the hair you’ve been longing for! Stay tuned friends!

My mom suffers from hair loss with age. She is always looking for ways to cover it up or disguise it.
Hi Rebecca, thanks for stopping by!
I definitely feel your mom’s pain. It is awful to look in the mirror and be able to clearly see your scalp. I’m hopeful that PRP will work for me and bring hope to other women going through the same. I hope you stay tuned and follow my journey!
My hair has been falling out rapidly. I have tried nutrition changes and everything! I know how it feels to cover bald spots with other hair. I really hope this works for you and I look forward to watching your results.
Hi Alicia! I’m sorry to hear you are also going through hairloss, it really is devastating to deal with, especially for women. I’ve been dealing with this for over 20 years and have tried so many things but have seen no results. I’m so grateful for this opportunity and really hopeful that this will help me finally see positive results. I hope you stay tuned to see my results!
I am so proud of you for sharing your story. I didn’t realize that there were so many women who suffered from hair loss. I hope the regiment that you are trying works for you. I look forward to reading your story.
Hi Cynthia, thanks for stopping by! It was really hard for me to share such a personal struggle but I realized that there are so many women going through the same that might just need the encouragement to help them get through it and realize that there is hope. I hope you stay tuned and follow me on my quest for messy hair!
I’m so sorry that you’ve had to go through this but I am glad you are going to be able to experience this innovative technique. Fingers crossed that you have amazing results! 🙂
Hi Marisa, glad you stopped by! I am super excited to be a part of this innovative technology that might just be the answer I’ve been looking for. I hope you follow my journey!
I hadn’t heard of this treatment before this post. That’s great that there is another option for those losing hair. I’ll have to tell my mom.
Hi Milena, thanks for stopping by! I’ve done so much research on hairloss and this is the only treatment that I have found that really does produce results without crazy regimens or surgery. You should definitely share with your mom if she suffers from hairloss. I know firsthand how devastating hairloss is and this might be something that can work for her too. I hope you stay tuned to see my results!
I dont suffer with hair loss but I do have thin hair. Luckily I have found products that help with keeping my hair strong. No more brittle hair!! I did some research & asked many people about the products they used. Glad I found something that works for me.
