Postpartum Hair Changes

Hair growth vitamin tablet supplements for women in postpartum

Don’t forget to look after you (and your hair) too…

It is not uncommon to experience postnatal hair loss. When this happens, it can be very disconcerting, but it is important to remember it is very normal.

Many postnatal women will notice a sudden shedding — sometimes in clumps — in the six months after birth. To put this into context, the average person loses approximately 100 hairs per day, but not all at once. Because this hair loss happens gradually, we don’t normally notice.

When you’re expecting, your pregnancy hormones can cause faster hair growth, and less hair loss. But when hormones go back to normal, these extra hairs drop.

When a woman gives birth, the levels of oestrogen in her bloodstream decrease dramatically. As a result of this, some new mums may experience postpartum hair loss that is quite dramatic. Shedding hair at a noticeable rate during the first two to six months after having a baby is not unusual, but some may experience significant, or noticeable hair loss. During an already busy and challenging time, many women find these changes to their hair have a real impact on their self-confidence. In combination with other physical changes to their body, new mothers can be left feeling self-conscious. It is also important to note that breastfeeding is not proven to contribute to hair loss.

Tips to Support Postpartum Hair Growth

When a new-born arrives, it is all too easy for a mother to be swept up in their every need, and to forget about looking after herself. So here are some tips to help guide postnatal women in supporting their hair during this challenging and exciting time:

Baby-bonding and invigorating fresh air strolls

Being a new mum can be exhausting, but getting some fresh air and exercise is important for wellbeing. Whilst rushing round the house may keep you busy and burn energy, more mindful exercise can be beneficial. Pushing a pram is a good way to get in some gentle outdoor exercise if the rest of your day is spent indoors. Try walking to the shops where possible, or a daily stroll round the local park is a lovely way to bond with baby, and also boost physical and mental wellbeing.

The better you feel, the better your hair will feel too.

Reduce stress

As difficult as it can be to adapt to a new routine with interrupted sleep patterns and constant feeding, reducing stress as much as possible is key. Try to avoid doing everything – being super mum, washing, cooking, socialising, cleaning and even working! You can’t do it all at once, compartmentalise tasks where you can, and go easy on yourself and life. Enjoy this special time.

Take Hair Growth Supplements*

Taking natural hair growth supplements during the postpartum phase (especially if you are experiencing postnatal hair loss), can be an excellent way to maintain the quality and health of the hair. Chemical and preservative free hair supplements can benefit your overall health, as well as giving your locks that all-important boost.

Sleep (as well as you can!)

Easier said than done with a new-born. But, where you can, snatch sleep. When baby sleeps forget about the tidying and try to grab some shut eye too. Every minute will help, and your hair will appreciate that too.

Eat Well

Think about the food that you eat. It may be tempting to reach for the bar of chocolate or the packet of crisps for a quick and easy hit, but instead try to have some easy, healthy snacks to hand. Remember that if you are breastfeeding, this is vitally important.

If your baby has started to eat pureed foods, homemade purees are really healthy for both mum and baby. Fruit and vegetables can be batch cooked to save time, so as well as being baby’s dinner, mum can also have it as a snack to help with sugar cravings when lacking energy, maybe with a handful of nuts, for a shot of pure vitamins for her and her hair too. Organically or locally sourced fruit and veg are great, but frozen vegetables or fruit are also a quick, affordable and healthy way to get in some extra vitamins.

However, take comfort in the fact that by the time you are blowing out the candle on that first birthday cake, your hair will more than likely be back to how it was pre-pregnancy!

Take time and take stock. Don’t let your hair suffer during this new phase in your life – do your best to look after you (and your hair) too.
