Postpartum Hair Loss

Right around the 4 month mark, I started to notice my first postpartum side effect: dramatic hair loss. This is very normal and usually occurs between 3 and 6 months postpartum, when your hair hibernates for a prolonged period of time, before making it's debut. I noticed it suddenly, when I brushed my hair and a handful of hair came out in my brush. My hair gets so unruly and knotted that I have to braid my hair or put it up in a bun to prevent my hair from turning into a huge rats nest, yikes! Every single time I brush my hair, hair falls out by the handful, so I don't brush my hair everyday anymore.
Unfortunately, when I wear my hair up in a bun, my hair loss is incredibly noticeable. My hair that frames my face has fallen out and highlights my receding hairline as shown in this photo below. I used a hair thinning powder and applied it to my hairline, and it has made a world of a difference! I feel confident wearing my hair up again, thanks to this amazing powder!

I am also taking Biotin vitamins, which I recommend!

In a few months, my hair will grow back, and I'm hearing that I'll have a ton of baby hair that sticks up. I'll gladly take that over having bald spots. Bring on the baby hair!

  3. Medical conditions such as diabetes or thyroid problems might cause hair loss. People experiencing hair loss should consult their doctor for an accurate diagnosis of what is causing them to lose hair. Treating the medical condition usually cures hair loss problems. In any case, you can always use herbal hair oil and Shampoo are really good for the hair health.

  5. Capillary density depends on two factors: the total number of hairs and the thickness of each. Both are genetically determined: at birth is already determined how many follicles and what has our hair thickness. However, there are factors that may modify.

Stem cell hair regrowth is well on its way to being widely available, but it’s definitely not the only treatment for thinning hair.Preventing Hair Loss

  8. I wanted to share an experience that I had in case some of your readers are early in the process. One thing I didn't realize until later on was that certain foods that I was eating was causing my hair loss to speed up. Once my doctor informed me of the foods, I was able to stop the loss of my hair and get treatments to help.

  10. It's so hard going through hair loss. I have lots of friends who have suffered post-partum and even if you know it may come back it can be difficult seeing the loss as you wash your hair or just go about daily life. Hopefully it came back in good time for you, if not there are other options to explore!
