The lustrous mane that you had during pregnancy will soon vanish once you have the baby. It will be followed by falling hair, and you’ll have thoughts of you going bald. Sleep deprivation, exertion with the newborn baby and weakness in the body only makes it worse. Post having the baby, we forget to give time to ourselves and keep ignoring the minor issues until they become so big that it scares you!
Postpartum hair fall
Your hair looks lustrous and thicker when you are pregnant. This is due to high estrogen levels that hold your hair onto the scalp and don’t let them fall. After you have your baby, the estrogen levels dip, causing the hair to shed from your scalp, sometimes in clumps. These hormonal changes are completely normal, but may last till about your baby is 12 months old. This extreme hair loss can make your hair look very thin.
How to control hair fall
Controlling hair fall isn’t a simple task. It takes a lot of dedication, commitment, and trust on the products to overcome this issue. And, continuous exposure to chemicals leads to hair losing their shine, strength, and thickness. One needs to take extreme care to stop hair fall.
Some steps you should take to control the receding hairline are:
- Have a healthy diet with plenty of protein to help the hair grow
- Make sure all your blood tests are normal, including thyroid and sugar tests.
- Skip all kinds of chemical and heat treatments on your hair. Coloring, rebounding, blow drying etc as this is only going to worsen the situation
- Use only natural hair products. Preferably use hair oil with Bhringraj oil, since it helps reducing hair fall.
- Ensure that you are using Silicone and Sulfate free Shampoo and Conditioner. The more chemicals you use, the more hair you’re going to shed.
- Use a Caffeine-based product for increasing the blood circulation in the scalp and making it healthier.
