Hello! I've lost lots of hair post delivery too. I used Natur Vital shampoo and conditioner and it helps. I also applied Natur Vital hair tonic which stimulates hair growth. You need to use the correct type of shampoo, wrong shampoo will worsen the situation instead. For me, I have oily scalp thus I used the shampoo for oily scalp which helps to dry up the excessive oils. Diet plays an important role too :) Eat a well balanced diet, everything will be fine once our hormones are back to normal.
I also lost a lot of hair after birth and my hairdresser advised me to cut it short to reduce the hair loss. I had long hair and it was quite difficult for me to cut it short but I did it anyway as he advised. It really works! My hair only dropped 2-3 strands after every wash. I also ate black sesame products often (such as black sesame paste) to strengthen my hair.
Yes after childbirth, we'll lose a considerable amount of hair & some mums will have very obvious bald patches. As we are slowly losing the pregnancy hormones so we will start losing hair as if u notice, we only drop very few strands of hair during pregnancy. I talked to my tricologist before my delivery. She told me to continue taking folic acid & apply the scalp tonic after i delivered. I did & I must say I did not really drop a lot of hair after delivery. It only returned to my normal hairloss. so I believe it works.
I had that problem too after I gave birth. My hairdresser also suggested to cut my hair short and he gave me scalp therapy treatments. It worked for me. Hope it helps.
I was losing hair in my first 6 months after birth and my hairdresser suggested doing scalp therapy. He also told me to comb my hair in various directions while blow-drying my hair. It really helped me.
I was also losing quite a bit of hair but it has since slowed down. The following tips might be helpful: 1) massage you scalp in the morning, during shower, and before you sleep. 2) Use tip of fingers rather than your finger nails when you wash your hair in the morning to avoid scratching the scalp. 3) Do not shower in hot water as it increase the oil production on your scalp which aggravates hair loss 4) Do not apply too much conditioner as you may not be able to wash them off thoroughly and if it is not cleaned properly, it clogs up the hair follicles area, 5)use gentle hair washes or anti hair loss shampoo, 6) brush your hair or use a comb with wide tooth to detangle your (long) hair before brushing. 7)Avoid brushing too hard as it may cause breakage, 8) Avoid using too much gel/hair spays
Yes, I also had similar problem. Though my doctor told me it's only a passing phase...I definitely don't want to become ugly!! Tried Natur, and it worked well on me. =)
Hormonal changes can cause many women to lose hair especially after delivery. Besides hair products, have a look at your diet and lifestyle. Protein and zinc is important for hair growth. Ensure that you are getting enough of chicken, meat, fish, and beans in your diet. Consider a multivitamin and mineral supplement that has zinc as well. Many hair saloons sell tonics that are useful for hair loss. You may also want to look at getting a shampoo that is gentle on your scalp. This is available at most pharmacies. It will take some time for your hair to grow back so you will need to be patient.
I'm concerned about hair loss after pregnancy (in clumps). i ask around mommies what they do with their hair loss? The answers i get is "dun worry, you'll get back your hair when your child 6 mths to 1, diet, rich in protein, multi-vit, And another women i met at the hair saloon, she advice me to use a bottle of hair tonic. Well, as i'm still nursing by son then, i've to to watch my diet but it doesn't help with the hair loss issue. So i tried the hair tonic, after about a week of usage, i notice the hair grow (lots of baby hair on my crown) back and minimise/ stop hair loss. Hope this help!
