New York,NY (PRWEB) September 30, 2014

When Felicia B was pregnant she was thrilled with the thick, shiny, lustrous mane of hair on her head. Then 3 months after giving birth to her daughter the healthy hair she loved so much began to fall out. Felicia says “I was so tired of scooping hair out of the shower drains and sweeping or vacuuming strands off the floors. The shedding tapered off 6 months later and now I’m noticing the growth of fine baby hairs. “

According to “The most common period of hair loss occurs approximately three months after delivery. The rise in hormones during pregnancy keeps you from losing your hair. After delivery, the hormones return to normal levels, which allow the hair to fall out and return to the normal cycle. The normal hair loss that was delayed during pregnancy may fall out all at once. Up to 60% of your hair that is in the growth state may enter into the telogen resting state. The hair loss usually peaks 3-4 months after delivery as your hair follicles rejuvenate themselves. As noted before, this hair loss is temporary and hair loss returns to normal within six to twelve months.”

This is just another change women must endure as a result of pregnancy. Some women never experience postpartum hair loss, while others will lose hair in clumps or gradually over a span of months. “ A pregnant woman can’t stop postpartum hair loss, but you can definitely reduce the fall-out by getting a short, wash-and-go hairstyle and following healthy hair tips. Continue taking your prenatal vitamins, stop excessively combing your hair while it’s still wet and avoid blow-drying your hair if you can. Avoid styling products, such as gel and hairspray. Ponytails should be loose and extensions are a no-no until your hair has fully recovered.” Normal hair growth usually resumes by the time your baby is a year old.
