Postpartum Hair Loss
Being a mother is the most special feeling one can imagine experiencing. There is nothing more joyful than bringing a new life to this world. Your child holding your finger with their little hand, the first smile they give you and more.
But sadly this all comes at a price. We are not talking about money but beauty. We are talking about your hair. You might have heard the term Postpartum Hair Loss. It occurs in the post-partum period, usually after giving birth due to the significant stress on your body.
In the postpartum period, the female body starts healing from the changes that occurred in the pregnancy period. The pain points, uterus size, hormone levels, and every other relevant thing starts to change and return to their stable form. This also affects your hair growth cycle and thus causes postpartum hair loss.
Generally, it occurs from a week to a few months. At some point, mothers forget that they are in a post-partum period and do not consider it to blame for their hair loss.
It is natural for us women to get stressed about hair loss. Hair is considered one of the most valuable assets we are given. Having long, dense, and luxurious hair makes us feel more confident. Unfortunately, for some women postpartum hair loss is a natural process that every woman has to go through after pregnancy. There is however a way to kick start the hair growth cycle again.
Here's a few growth hacks we have when looking for natural alternatives.
In the postpartum period, your body is healing, so is the hair cycle and that is what causes the hair loss. You can speed up this process so that the hair loss stops and you can work on growing more. For that, you will need to eat lots of healthy food such as ones high in protein, iron and good fats. This so that your body gets all the nutrition it needs.
Go Easy On Styling
It may sound painful but we all know that styling does partially damage our hair such as using dryers, straighteners and curling irons. Avoid using styling chemicals that could cause more damage, to your already sensitive hair.
Use Growth Serum
Use the right hair a growth products for your scalp. This will boost hair growth and provide natural nutrients to promote a healthier growth cycle.
We recommend using the Hair Folli Growth Kit. This comes with shampoo, conditioner along with the daily use growth Spray and Folli Derma Roller. It's 100% Australian made and owned.
That way, you will be able to properly take care of your hair and ensure it grows back like you always wanted.
Postpartum hair loss is a natural phase. There is nothing to be stressed out about it. With some little steps, you can easily recover and spend more time with your little one.
