Postpartum hair loss, what to do?

Is it normal to lose hair after childbirth? When does postpartum hair loss stop? How to stop it? Will my hair grow back? 💬 So many questions that the vast majority of women ask themselves once baby has pointed the tip of their nose. 👶

Why do we lose our hair after giving birth?

A woman's body undergoes many changes during pregnancy and after childbirth. Postpartum alopecia or postpartum hair loss is one of the most common. As with many pregnancy-related symptoms or issues, changes in your hormone levels, including after giving birth, are responsible for this hair loss. If you are a victim, know that you are not the only woman to be affected, and that it is generally temporary.

Most women experience hair loss in the months following childbirth. It's often a bit of a panic when you see significant hair loss, but don't worry, it's typical of this period. As your pregnancy hormone levels return to normal, the changes they trigger in your body will gradually subside and your hair will go back to how it was. 😉

However, there are some tricks to limit this fall and stimulate regrowth. Here are our tips:

👍Use the right accessories

Brushing is a daily gesture that we tend to neglect and yet! Did you know that brushing is an excellent way to stimulate the circulation of your scalp and thus limit hair loss and boost regrowth? But be careful not to use just any brush because some can damage your hair fiber and be too aggressive for your scalp. 😖

Our detangling and volume brush is particularly suitable for combating postpartum hair loss. The vegan, ultra-flexible nylon bristles penetrate the hair deeply. The protective balls associated with the pneumatic cushion avoid attacking the scalp and stimulate blood circulation to promote regrowth while offering a moment of relaxation. 💆‍♀️ The spaced layout of the pins allows you to ventilate and untangle smooth and curly hair, dry and wet, while giving it volume.

Do not pull your hair while styling it. Make hairstyles with accessories that won't damage your hair fiber like scrunchies, spiral elastics...

🥦 A good diet

Diet plays a very important role in the health of your hair. It is essential to provide the right nutrients and vitamins for good hair health. Eat enough fruits, vegetables, oilseeds, legumes, oily fish...Also remember to drink water regularly. 💦 In addition to a balanced diet, you can take specific food supplements for hair loss.

🔥 Beware of heating devices

Heated appliances (straighteners, hair dryers, etc.) tend to irritate the scalp and dry out the lengths, which can accentuate hair loss. Use the "cool air" setting on your hair dryer or let them dry naturally.

Hair loss is completely normal, it is the work of pregnancy hormones. It can be overwhelming, but don't worry, it doesn't matter! 😊
