Are you struggling with postpartum hair loss?
There are so many hormonal changes throughout pregnancy and everyone notices changes in their hair. Most commonly, women do not shed hair as they normally would without being pregnant. After pregnancy when you have a drop in estrogen, all the hair that wasn’t shed throughout pregnancy falls out. This is why it may seem like an overwhelming amount of hair loss. Here is some information to get you through this time.
It IS normal
Like you read above, your hair does not shed throughout pregnancy. This is why your hair is extra thick and luscious. The average person loses 100 strands a day. Now imagine holding onto those extra 100 strands and then shedding them all at once. That is basically what you are going through. It is normal, you are not alone. If you’re breastfeeding, your hair loss may not begin until you wean, because of hormones as well.
Supplements to try
We highly recommend staying on your prenatal vitamin, as this will help. You can also try hair, skin and nails or collagen as well.
There are lots of ways you can enhance your hair throughout the hair loss process. Different cuts, colors or even changing your part can help disguise hair loss. There are only semi-permanent and permanent extensions options as well.
