After I gave birth to Little Bean I don’t recall that I lost much hair. I knew other Mums complained of hair loss and I had read about it in books but perhaps because it was summer and I was out and about so much I didn’t really notice.
After the birth of Beanie Boy it was a whole different kettle of fish! A few months after giving birth my hair fell out by the handfull, every morning my pillow would be covered in hairs, the plughole in the shower would block regularly and the carpets had a layer of hair constantly covering them (yes I did hoover but the hair even broke that in the end!). It was actually quite disturbing as I was convinced that I would soon be bald because I was losing that much hair. It is in fact a natural process after pregnancy but it can be upsetting nonetheless.
The normal process for hair growth is that 85-95% of the hair on your head is growing whilst the other 5-15% is in a resting stage. After the resting period this hair falls out and is replaced by new growth. On average a woman will shed approximately 100 hairs per day. Increased levels of oestrogen during pregnancy extend the growing stage and there are fewer hairs in the resting stage and fewer hairs falling out. During pregnancy most women will notice how healthy and full of body their hair becomes.
Following birth your oestrogen levels fall and so more hair follicles than normal enter the resting stage which ultimately means you will lose more hair. As your hormone levels settle your hair growth and regeneration returns to normal which is usually by the time your baby celebrates their first birthday.
To combat my hair loss I was sent Nanogen Intervention for Women which is a complete Anti-Hair Loss Supplement for Women. Each ingredient has been specifically chosen for its properties in reducing hair loss and promoting healthy hair growth;
|Ingredient||Amount per serving||How it helps|
