Those first few months with a new born are the most precious you will ever have and something that flies by in the blink of an eye.
They are also the most problematic and whilst you are getting to know your precious little bundle your body will be going through nearly as many changes as it has in pregnancy.
Your body will be slowly getting itself back to it pre-pregnancy state and those pesky hormones levels will be trying to get themselves back onto an even keel.
Unfortunately for me and around 40% of women the drop in hormones means that the long thick hair you have been sporting will leave; causing thinness and sometime receding hairlines and bald patches.
After five pregnancies and what seems like more hair loss each time I have been left with extremely lacklustre locks that has been a real knock to my confidence.
There are however some things you can do to help improve this:
- A Good Diet – a diet rich in fruit, vegetable and good fats such as oily fish and nuts will help feed your hair from the inside and in turn rejuvenate hair growth.
- Over Brushing – avoid over brushing your hair, especially when wet as your hair is at its most brittle.
- Stop The Pigtails – putting your hair up in a ponytail of plaits everyday can put your hair under a lot of strain so make sure you give your hair a good break.
- Advanced Trico Pigmentation – This is something for those of you that want to try something to really help you recreate fuller and thicker hair as well as recreate a hairline that may be missing from hair loss.
