Re: Shedding of the HAIR!!!!!

DD2 is 7 months and I am still losing it in clumps. We've had to have the plumber snake the bathtub drain COUNTLESS times in the past few months.

Are you still taking your prenatal? That seemed to help after my first daughter, but this time it's not doing much.

Re: Shedding of the HAIR!!!!!

Mine stopped when I stopped BFing at 6.5 months. Not saying that will be the case for you though.

I was losing so much that when I went to the obgyn for my 6 month PP appointment, and was pulling my hair out in front of my doc, he told me to go to a dermatologist. Chat Icon

That's the thing. Your pregnancy hair looked so good and thick and shiny not due to the vitamins but due to the hormones. The pregnancy hormones make your body hold onto the hair longer- rather than shedding like normal.
So you wind up with thicker hair due to keeping it instead of shedding it day to day in small amounts.
Then as your hormones return to normal you start to shed all you hung on to for those 9 months.
So you really aren't losing hair and going bald or anything- you are just shedding the excess that you didn't shed while pregnant.

It slows down around 6-8 months.

Sadly, pregnancy hair doesn't last though. It was the ONE part of pregnancy that didn't make me look awful!

Mine started about 3-4 months pp. Also - are you bfing? I think that might have a lot to do with it, although I'm not totally sure.

Ah ok that would explain it. I'm only 1 month pp. I'm not bf either.

Looks like I have something else to look forward to lol

I was EBF and I actually thought (stupidly) that I was getting away without losing my hair since it didn't happen for quite a while. It was several months before mine starting falling out, although I don't remember exactly how long. It also lasted MUCH longer than I expected, which I thought might have something to do with BF and hormones still being wacky.

The worst part was the regrowth of hair all around my face/on top o my head. I had all these short little hairs sticking up that were impossible to tame for the longest time. NOT looking forward to this again!

This is why it happens. for me with the twins and BFing it started somewhere between 3 and 4 months pp. It is definitely a lot better, but I still loose more hair then I did. I'm 15 months pp still bf if that matters

Re: Shedding of the HAIR!!!!!

I'm about 6 1/2 mths pp and my shedding has just decreased- finally!!!

I posted on the beauty board about it awhile ago and someone recommended-- jojoba oil. I've been using that for about a month now, so I don't know if that has something to do with it or what.

Also, my hair dresser recommended Nioxin. I'm going to try that too-- just cause my hair is so thin I could use all the help I can get.

I'm 13 months pp and still shed big ole hair balls and my hair gets super tangled. Although I'm not really sure if its bc of the pregnancy or bc I never have time to brush my hair anymore. Either way, I'm shocked I still have any hair left!
