Hair loss after your new Baby

Thinning Hair and Pregnancy
Thinning hair or hair loss is very common after pregnancy. I know that alot of us get the most beautiful head of hair while pregnant with the lil monsters so its hurtful when you have them, your hair falls out. Usually women see hair loss after pregnancy -starting around three months after they have had a baby. Child birth often results in abrupt hair thinning. But this is not something to worry about. It is a completely natural post-natal process that many pregnant women will go through.

During pregnancy, hair shedding is slowed down by high levels of hormones. As soon as the hormones are returned to pre-pregnancy levels, extra hair is shed. In other words, the normal hair loss that was delayed by pregnancy takes place all at once. This may cause your hair look thinner than usual.
Do not panic; your hair will get back to its normal growing phases and stop thinning within 3 months. Hair thinning caused by pregnancy comes under the term telogen effluvium or diffuse hair loss.
When it occurs, hair can be shed from any area of the scalp. A quick fix to cover thin area is to change your hairstyle. Talk to your hairdresser to find a style which will cover thin spots until your hair grows back.
Once more, pregnant women should not worry about thinning hair after pregnancy. It is normal process. Just be patient for about several months. Also, you may want to continue the diet and extra care you gave your body while pregnant. It helps….along with the continuation of you prenatal pills. They are the best vitamins ever. It will help tremendously.

I am the owner of Realistic Manes Salon located 2020 Nicollet Ave. S in Minneapolis Minnesota. I am a divorced mother of 4 who is a person who tries to be as Realistic about life, people and relationships as possible. To me, being Realistic is being myself regardless of the situation or circumstances. I do believe that there is a way to do everything and I seek daily things to better myself and my situation.

I started this blog as a way for some of us to check ourselves. Myself included. Being a person in the service (beauty) industry we rely on others for our livelihood. Now, I don't believe we have to kiss nobody's ass to live, I do believe we can carry ourselves a little better than we do. I will praise those who do and talk about those who don't. That's me. Kiki is Realistic…..
