We all turn into very efficient Oestrogen factories during pregnancy, and high levels of Oestrogen will keep your hair in the growth part of its natural cycle. Many pregnant women notice a lovely boost in the condition and thickness of their hair.
Hair may seem oilier and require less or a lighter conditioner after shampooing.
About three months after you give birth, your Oestrogen levels have dropped enough for your hair to enter the next phase, which involves hair loss.
I wasn’t aware of this, but I do clearly remember being amazed by the amount of hair I shed after my last baby was born.
The best way to avoid excessive hair loss after delivery is to maintain hair and scalp health during your pregnancy.
Brushing your hair regularly (at least morning and night) with a soft, natural bristle brush helps to distribute your hair’s natural oils, from root to tip.
Wash your hair regularly with a gentle shampoo to remove product, dirt, sweat and oils, and use a conditioner suitable for your changing hair type.
Many women consider a complete change of hair style during pregnancy or soon after their baby is born, aside from the changing conditions of your hair, you will probably find your have less time each day to spend styling your hair and it is often more convenient or comfortable to have shorter hair or wear it up when breastfeeding and caring for your baby.
