About Mathew

In September 2013, Chris’ son Matthew was diagnosed with Infantile Spasms. Emma, Chris’ wife did extensive research online and discovered that this condition is rare. Though speaking to the doctors treating Matthew they discovered that even within the medical profession there isn’t a lot of knowledge around this condition.

From this point Chris and Emma decided to share theirs, and Matthew’s story. They both hope that this blog and these accounts will help other parents who find themselves in the same position. - You’re not alone.

You can find Chris on Twitter as @mcwoods, and Emma on Twitter as @emmawoods

Why with big hair

What ever you do in life, do it with big hair.

Well… that’s a long story. I used to have long hair, and as a guy I’d get a lot of weird looks. Interestingly most of the negative comments came from women, not men. I realised that as a guy there is a good chance that as I got older I’d loose my hair - why not enjoy it while it’s here. This led to me saying, and creating the site - with big hair. Hey, whatever you do in life, do it with big hair; don’t worry about what others think, as long as it’s not hurting anyone, enjoy life.

I originally thought it would be a great name for a male hair product site. But hey, that more motivational meaning really stuck.
