EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT POSTPARTUM HAIR LOSS
The most popular question among the questions asked in our clinic is about the hair loss of women after their babies are born. Intense hair loss is very common and is a completely normal process seen in women about 2-6 months after delivery.
The reason for hair loss in the postpartum period is that the high estrogen level during pregnancy drops to normal after birth. During pregnancy, the estrogen hormone rises and the hair remains mainly in the growth phase. In other words, a woman’s hormones work overtime during pregnancy.
Few women experience hair loss after childbirth , so you shouldn’t worry about it unless you keep it going.
“Your hair will grow back”
During pregnancy, the hair that does not shed during pregnancy is renewed naturally. Therefore, under normal conditions, this is a temporary hair loss and your hair will grow back in a short time.
However, it should not be forgotten that the post-pregnancy period is a physically difficult period. Insomnia, restlessness, and breastfeeding push your body tightly to its limits. And when you add the stress caused by the hair loss, the process becomes uncomfortable and takes much longer.
During this period, attention should be paid to anemia. In addition, the health of the scalp plays an important role in the healthy return of hair.
It is also highly recommended to wash your hair every day, and to use shampoos and creams, especially those recommended by your doctor.
