to ask you about fanjo hair?

I used to have a bushy bush. It's now looking decidedly balding. There's a big bald patch in the middle.

Is this normal as one gets older?

You creep <slap> grin

ReticulatingSplines Thu 23-Jan-14 15:02:15

I think lots of you have misread the thread title. It is "AIBU to ask you about fanjo hair?" Not "AIBU to ask you about YOUR fanjo hair?"

Maybe I should have titled it "AIBU to ask you about MY fanjo hair?".

YABU to ask. Mind your own beeswax

ReticulatingSplines Thu 23-Jan-14 14:38:50

Hmm. Mumsnet certainly is an eye opener.

NotAQueef Thu 23-Jan-14 12:59:25

There is reticulating - can't blimmng remember the name now though merkin- murkin or somesuch

ReticulatingSplines Thu 23-Jan-14 12:52:31

You could plait it? Or donate some to less fortunate individuals? I wonder if there'd be a market for fanjo wigs.

I've got the opposite problem - fanjo hair spreading down my legs. I swear to god it'll be down to my knees soon, but at least i will have nice warm thighs.

It could be low oestrogen, post baby.

Googling "fanjo accessories" is of no help. First it says "did you mean banjo accessories?" Why would my banjo need accessories? Then it comes up with this:

Which although lovely, is not quite what I was expecting.

Serious advice taken, will head to Dr at some point smile

bragmatic, thanks for that link - brilliant!

its quite common for thyroid to go wonky after a baby. Might be worth getting that checked?

FoxOff Thu 23-Jan-14 08:52:24

You could always fill the circular patch with a little vajazzle and then gradually expand the pattern if and when the bald patch gets bigger.

That's my beauty tip for today.

FanjoForTheMammaries Thu 23-Jan-14 08:42:48

My hair is just past shoulders and wavy, thanks.

SamU2 Thu 23-Jan-14 08:41:42

I lost most of mine at age 30.

I do have an under active thyroid though. Even though it is now well managed I still have bald patches.

It's really quite quirky as I don't trim or anything so it resembles a bald mans head with a long beard.

NCISaddict Thu 23-Jan-14 07:20:24

I'm 48 and mine is certainly more patchy but longer, what's that all about? The hair that used to be in the sparser patches has migrated down to the back of my thighs which now have long dark hairs. Very odd, my Mother never warned me about this.

ReticulatingSplines Thu 23-Jan-14 07:13:18

Those photos are brilliant smile

ReticulatingSplines Thu 23-Jan-14 07:07:58

Hair on my head is falling out a lot and has been since DD was about 8 weeks. Although it is thinner there are no patches I've noticed.

What a great set of photos!
Posture is all!
And I agree, the baldies & brazilians didn't look all that (a bit contrived, iyswim?). But having said that, I didn't think the full-on 70s bush was very flattering either.

bragmatic Thu 23-Jan-14 06:08:26

I like the website BG and agree that the natural look to me is much more pleasing to the eye.

Coming up to 45 and no discernible difference here, OP. How's the hair on your head?

ZingSweetApple Thu 23-Jan-14 05:37:54

YANBU to ask.

I ain't answering though.

Can I just share this with you - its actually about posture but involves naked bodies. I have to say, waxing is not a good look. Neither is that Brazilian.

Liking this ageing thing, no periods and no fanjo hair grooming smile.

Not that I would notice because I like to be bald down there any way.

Hair loss is common after pregnancy. Assuming that applies all over and not just the head!

ReticulatingSplines Wed 22-Jan-14 22:05:18

Constant friction?! Not much of that going on.

Err I've lost a fair bit of weight, but I have a 5mo. I'm probably lighter than I was pre-pregnancy.
