Hello to all new mothers residing in Peterborough. Childbirth is an out-of-the-world experience but with everything good comes something bad too. Pregnancy makes your hair look thicker, softer, and shinier but your voluminous tresses tend to suffer post pregnancy due to a significant decrease in the hormone, estrogen. As you must have noticed, you are losing more hair than you ever anticipated and this is seriously making you feel sad and affecting your daily rhythm of life. Hair loss will gradually stop after six months of childbirth but in some women, it can even extend to a year. Not to worry anymore, here are some tips that will help you deal with post-partum hair loss effectively.
Eat highly nutritious food
After childbirth, your body is weak and has already lost essential vitamins and minerals. To keep up with your lost nutrition, you need to double the amount of nutrients in your diet. Eat lots of fruits, vegetables, eggs, fish, meat, whole grains, legumes, lentils, nuts, and seeds. Drink milk every day and also consider consuming milk products.
Be gentle with your hair
Your hair is already fragile right now so do not put any sort of extra tension or pressure on your scalp and hair strands. Make loose ponytails, braids, and buns; also avoid brushing your hair when it’s wet.
Oil it right
Oil is your hair’s ultimate food. In India, women do not skip oiling their hair because they understand the benefits of a good ole champi and hence, apply organic hair oil regularly, that’s why they have glossy and thick hair. Applying natural hair oil will give strength to your weak hair strands and help prevent excessive hair loss.
Take vitamin supplements
Ask your doctor to prescribe you adequate vitamin supplements with the right dosage.
Go for a short and voluminous haircut
Consider getting a short and voluminous haircut, like a chin-length bob or blunt cut to manage hair loss.
Avoid heat styling and any chemical treatment
Heat styling is a big no this time. Also, avoid any perming, colouring, or any other chemical treatment as it can deteriorate your hair’s condition.
Do not stress
Taking care of a newborn can be stressful but still, try to avoid stress as much as you can. Go out for a walk, read a book, pamper yourself, and most importantly, get a nap.
Take care of your baby and your hair. See you again!
