As parents, we are used to the stressful times that parenting brings us, hence my name ‘StressedMum’, my 3 have caused me many moments over the years where I have felt like pulling my hair out or I am losing my hair, and believe me, even though two of them are now adults they cause me just as much if not more stress than when they were younger. But for some people losing their hair is not a joke and can cause confidence issues.
