Postpartum hair loss
Postpartum hair loss is normal and temporary. Hair growth cycle returns within 6-12 months. I noticed my hair was thinning around 3 months and I noticed lots of clumps. I was so scared, then I was reasurred that it was temporary and I could do a few of these things.
What can you do while you wait for your hair to return to its normal growth cycle?
Get a good haircut. Some moms choose this time to get a shorter haircut or one that requires less care.
Experiment with different hairstyles.
A good quality shampoo and conditioner may help.
Try different styling products, such as mousses or texturizers that “bulk up” the appearance of your hair.
Avoid using a brush or comb that pulls or stresses the hair.
I did get a hair cut. I got mine cut shorter a bit above my shoulders (it was down near my butt), layered, and textured. It was easier to maintain since I have thick hair and naturally curly. It took too long to comb out, shampoo and condition and style. With a nearly 3 month old, I needed a style that was easier and quicker to manage. I like it now and takes WAY less time.
I am going to try this. Check them out Amanda.
