Postpartum Hair Loss

Postpartum hair loss
by a hairstylist at Julia Grace Salon:

“I’ve been a hairstylist for 5 years now, and I’ve seen this happen to so many
of my clients after they have a baby! This is an article explaining how the rise of
estrogen levels in a woman’s body while pregnant affects the growth process of hair and
why moderate to sometimes dramatic hair loss occurs after your little bundle of joy enters the world.
It is important to take good care of your hair during your pregnancy by using good products and
minimal heat but once you experience hair loss, things like coloring your hair, cutting it
shorter, or using a hair powder (like ColorWOW! Hair powder that you can find
at Julia Grace Salon) that can be used to camouflage thinning spots.
Hair loss can be scary, but your hair will come back!”

Good things to do if you experience postpartum hair loss (from Babble.com):

  • Be gentle with your hair to preserve the hair that isn’t in the resting phase
  • Avoid heat styling if you can.
  • Maintain a healthy diet and keep taking your prenatal vitamins.
  • Try using tinted hair powders and fiber-based thinning hair concealers.
