Hayden Panettiere's Drastic Haircut Helping With Postpartum Depression (PHOTO)

hayden panettiereChange is good, and it seems as though Hayden Panettiere, mom of 12 month old Kaya, is doing all she can to beat postpartum depression. Panettiere began treatment for PPD in October and just got a drastic hair cut saying how she got rid of "metaphorical and literal dead ends."


This photo is one of the first she has shared with fans since she began treatment. I think we can all agree that she looks absolutely lovely -- the hair is gorgeous, but it's more than just about the hair. She looks happy and well and it seems she is making progress in her treatment. That is such a wonderful thing.

The 26-year-old said that this hair cut is like a purging for her -- "off with the old and growing the new." What a beautiful statement. This isn't just a mom haircut -- something that new moms often get criticized for when they have a baby -- this is Hayden shedding things that she is carrying that she no longer needs, things to help her feel well.

The haircut is stunning, as is that sweater and the hat. Her skin has a beautiful dewy glow. That is the new mom glow we want to see from her -- she is shining from the inside out. And that makes me feel happy and so thankful she sought out the help she needed. There are many times we all need a little help -- we don't have to try to brave it and go it alone.
