Tufty hair

I had HUGE hair loss when my son was born. It is now growing back but I have tufts everywhere. They are not quite long enough for grips so I have been scraping back and spraying down with hairspray but it makes me look like I am trying to do a 'Croyden facelift' I think it's called. Does anyone have any top tuft tips? TY

I suffer(ed) quite badly with trichotillomania, my routine without fail would be to put a push back head band on post bath / shower. So whilst your hair is drying it’s being kept in place. I’ve done that so frequently that unless it’s really humid my tufts lay flat now!

Even when the tufts are long enough be careful with grips because they can rip out your hairs!

Another trick is to spray hairspray on a toothbrush / spoolie brush (mascara wand type) and comb the hairs into place. This will make them lay flat without the inadvertent face lift.

Hope this helps! X
