Postpartum hair loss, or hair loss after pregnancy, can be experienced in the six months after child birth. The reason why women experience this type of hair loss is due to a change in hormone levels.
People normally lose about 100 hairs every day. This may sound surprising since this natural hair loss happens throughout the day and goes virtually unnoticed. By contrast, when you’re expecting, pregnancy hormones keep your hair from falling out, leaving your hair looking and feeling thick. After giving birth, hormone levels return back to normal and the extra hair you’ve built up ends up falling out in massive amounts. Although this can be alarming, don’t worry – there are some things you can do about postpartum hair loss.
Follow these recommendations aimed to help postpartum hair loss. However, should your hair loss be excessive and coupled with other symptoms, like anxiety, fatigue or unexplained weight loss, you should consult your physician. These could be signs of a different condition than postpartum hair loss.
