Been TOO Long!

I have MISSED my blog SO much! As you all can see, I am finally able to update again! Since November 2, 2009 a lot has happened in my personal life. For one, the semester is almost over and stress is running rapid in my life over finals, deadlines, and GPAs! Christmas break cannot come soon enough. I feel as though I've fallen behind in just about everything and I am FREAKING OUT! Now, what does that have to do with my hair? Everything! I've always know the stress and hair went hand and hand so I figured why not educate my subscribers on it as well! Here's an article I dug up online:

The most common type of stress-induced hair loss is telogen effluvium. In this condition, emotional or physical stress — related to a death in the family, pregnancy, severe weight loss or surgery, for example — pushes large numbers of growing hairs into a resting phase. Within a few months, the affected hairs may fall out suddenly when simply combing or washing your hair. The hair typically grows back when the emotional or physical stress is resolved, although this can take months.

For some people, intense stress may trigger a type of hair loss called alopecia areata. In this condition, white blood cells attack the hair follicle — which stops hair growth. Within weeks, the affected hair falls out. The hair loss usually starts as a small round patch but may eventually spread to the whole scalp, and sometimes to body hair as well. The hair generally grows back, but the cycle may repeat itself.

Talk to your doctor if you notice sudden or patchy hair loss or more than usual hair loss when combing or washing your hair. Sudden hair loss can signal an underlying medical condition that requires treatment. If needed, your doctor may suggest treatment options for the hair loss as well.


Technical Difficulties

So for some odd reason, my computer will under NO circumstances sign my friend out of his blogger account! This means, I can't update from my computer! *sooo upset* Also, my chord for my computer finally arrived but my computer/camera does not want to sync with one another! *sigh* back to the drawing board.

Side Bar...don't forget ladies, if you want to be featured on my blog as a trader girl, all you have to do is email me at donnajenay@aol.com!!!
