Over the past couple of years, I have gone through a whirlwind of changes. From moving to NYC to Hendrix’s birth & the past 15 months of his life, I have changed so much as an individual & as a mother. While change can be difficult at times (especially for the anxious type like myself), I’ve learned to embrace it over the years & a simple change of mindset has helped me grow so much.
When I heard about the Herbal Essences ‘Changes’ campaign, I immediately knew I wanted to be apart of it! One, because who doesn’t love Herbal Essences products!? & Two, because I have had the craziest change in my hair after having Hendrix & as silly as it might sound, these changes (baby AND hair) have completely changed my mindset on life. Honestly, when I first watched the Herbal Essences Changes Video I started to tear up because it’s so inspiring to see people have the courage to make a change. It’s incredible how freeing change can be!
Having a baby is a big change both mentally & physically. While everyone is aware of the obvious physical changes that come with pregnancy (hello, giant baby bump), I’ve learned that a lot of people aren’t aware of the hair loss about 6 months AFTER you have your baby. I’ll admit I was shocked when my hair started falling out after I had Hendrix & it’s funny because I had already gone through the whole experience previously with Kannon! There was something this time around though that felt different & that’s when I decided to approach things differently. I decided to embrace the new hair growth (even though at times it was a nightmare to style) & I kind of viewed the whole experience as “new hair, new me”. Instead of lingering on the hair loss, I focused on the growth & decided to focus on my growth as an individual as well. With that change came a newfound happiness within myself & I’m beyond thankful for that!
Have any of you had an experience where a small change ended up having a huge impact on your life?
If you haven’t already, I would love for you all to watch the video from the Herbal Essences ‘Changes’ campaign. I find it so inspiring & I hope every one of you who watches it feels the same!

Thank you so much for sharing Sheridan. I know that it was a huge shock for me when I found out about the hair loss after giving birth. There are so many things that happen to us as we age and of course when life throws things at us. This past year has been full of big and small changes for myself and I’m still trying to figure out how to process and deal with them.
